I realized recently most nights i fall asleep with one hand in my boxers (if i'm wearing them) and either holding or hand on my penis. I don't plan to do it at all. Last night as I was fallling asleep I realized I had both hands under the waist band left one holding on, right one just on the top of my thigh.
Being cut, I used to protect my head with my hand as a kid. Thankfully I have been able to re-grow enough skin to now stay covered. However, since I am missing a natural foreskin I must pull up my re-grown foreskin after I get a nocturnal erection but do this in my sleep.

Don't regret later what you could have changed. Foreskin restoration is a marathon, not a sprint.
i've never fallen asleep while holding on to myself, though i've been known to hold others..... but generally if i fall asleep with a guy i like holding on to his balls..... it's so comforting, and the guy always enjoys it.....
I have seen buddies sleeping on my couch that seem to put their hand on their dick on top of the covers. I think it is to hide morning wood in case somebody walks by while they are still sleeping. Maybe the did it at home too as a security thing - who knows?
i often sleep with hands between legs ... often I find myself at gatherings fall asleep and wake up with hands between legs gravitating to the cock area lol..... I will when cold hold penis or sack to warm hands but most times its hands tucked between legs
