SP can result from many sleep disorders, one being narcolepsy. In addition, one may experience it more when their circadian rhythm is off, and they don't practice good sleep habits.
In closing, stop telling me I'm wrong when it's obvious you don't know what you're talking about.

Personally, I believe SP to be a natural biological process resulting from one or several sleep disorders.
Well no that is wrong. Sp does not come from any type of sleep disorder. You are correct in saying its a biological process. Sp happens to everybody when we sleep. It is to stop us from hurting ourselves when we dream. Most people dont even know they had SP unless they wake up whilst the body is still paralysised. Waking up during this is not a disorder but some brain functions are still in sleep mode and just takes a while before they come out of sleep.

No one said it was a disorder. Moreover, the OP said she had "erotic" feelings when it happened, and I'm telling her many people do not consider her experiences to be SP. In addition, some people claim to have had sex with incubbi/succubi (read the link), and by posting it was meant to provide clarity as it relates to eroticism and what what she experienced.
Less typing. More reading. Heed these instructions.
Sleep paralysis strikes as a person is moving into or out of REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, the deepest part of sleep. During REM sleep the body is largely disconnected from the brain leaving the body paralyzed. Sleep paralysis is the result of premature (or persistent) mind-body disconnection as one is about to enter into (or exit from) REM sleep.
Sleep paralysis occurs most often after jet lag or periods of sleeplessness that interrupt the normal REM patterns.
To see a mansion in your dream, symbolizes your greatest potential and growth. You may feel that your current situation or relationship is in a rut.
To dream that the doors are closed or locked, signify opportunities that are denied and not available to you or that you have missed out on.
To dream that you are locking doors, suggests that you are closing yourself off from others. You are hesitant in letting others in and revealing your feelings. It is indicative of some fear and low self-worth.
dreaming that you are paralyzed may mean you are feeling helpless or pinned down in some aspects or circumstances of your waking life. You may feel unable to deal with a situation or that you can't do or change anything.
