The excuses people will make for cheating on their spouses. Who comes up with these? Damn, those Australians are good.
"Imagine finding unexplained condoms around your house and then waking up one night to find your partner having sex with a stranger.
It might sound like an affair, but what if your 'cheating' partner was fast asleep during the act?
The phenomenon, called sleep sex, was described to doctors at a meeting in Australia.
Sleep physician Peter Buchanan, from Sydney's Royal Alfred Hospital, described this real life case.
Mr Buchanan told the Australasian Sleep Association how a patient of his, who was a respectable middle-aged woman with a steady partner, would leave
the house while sleepwalking and have sex with strangers.
The woman was totally unaware of her double life until her partner became suspicious and found her engaged in the act."
