    Well, its a legitimate disorder.

    Sexsomnia is a disorder that causes you to perform sex acts during your sleep, fully unaware of doing so. The behavior may be confined to your bedroom, or you might actually leave your house, sleepwalk to your lovers house and have a night of mind blowing sex that you won’t remember in the morning. Also known as “arousal parasomnia”, this legitimate sleep disorder is caused by a miscommunication between the mind and body during the 4th and 5th stages of REM sleep.

    Now, has anybody ever suffered from this? Imagine getting an std and not knowing who the hell its from

    There was a documentary on it over here a while ago, and one guy was charged with raping a girl friend he'd shared a hotel room with. It was successfully argued that he suffered from sexsomnia.
