Why is it that sometimes I find that my hand is in my pants when I am sleeping?


There probably isn’t a single answer to this. Not everyone does it, but for those who do some suppose that it is an instinctive way to protect your genitals. More likely is that it simply feels good and being slightly aroused also causes the body to relax, which makes it easier to fall asleep.
