I’m going to preface this by saying that this is a “adult” situation and apologize if anyone doesn’t feel like it’s appropriate.
For several months now I’ve woken up in the middle of the night and found myself masturbating. Upon realizing what’s going on I immediately stop, ask God to forgive me, and go back to sleep. I’ve brought this up to a priest and he said that I was not sinning and it’s good that I stop when I realize what’s happening.
Recently I had a dream that I was doing the same and realized in the morning that I had also presumable done the act while asleep (not just in my dream). I have no memory of actually doing it and felt a great amount of shame when I realized what had happened. Is this something that I should bring up in my next confession? Or is it not considered a sin since I was asleep and had no control over the situation?
Thank you and God bless!
