Abstract We describe a year-old married woman diagnosed with sexsomnia at the same time as a NREM parasomnia, who sought check-up assistance motivated by relationship problems along with her husband after two sexsomnia episodes.

The patient was clinically evaluated, no psychiatric history was found, and she denied using pharmaceutical or recreational drugs. A video-polysomnography documented nine episodes of short- lasting abrupt awakening from N2 after that N3, indicating a non-REM parasomnia, a few with masturbation characteristics.
