Bed Wetting, Ricky Lake Discussed Sleep Disorders

Today’s Ricky Lake show discussed sexomnia and other sleep disorders.  Often, talk shows miss the least sexy, but most troublesome sleep disorder symptom:  bed wetting.  


The leading cause of bedwetting is the same sleep disorder that produces sleep walking and night terrors.  The adult sleep eater featured on Ricky Lake’s talk show could have been a bed wetter as a child. This misunderstood sleep disorder topic needs a voice.


Sean “Diddy” Combs announced, or as he stated it, “confessed” he was a bed wetter because he drank Kool-Aid.  ”Someone does not wet their bed because of what they drink,” states Lyle Danuloff, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist,  “Sean wet the bed because he inherited a deep sleep disorder.  The deep sleep resulted in the brain’s inability to receive signals from the bladder.”


Dr. Danuloff is a consulting psychologist and has worked with Barbara Moore, leading bedwetting expert and founder of The Enuresis Treatment Center for the past 35 years.  They reached out to Ricky Lake to discuss this very serious problem that is wrapped in shame. The show’s current format, according to USA Today, is a blend of self-help and family issues.


Ricky was quoted in USA Today  ”I am so proud of the shows we completed this season, sparking important conversations about everything from raising children to mental illness to suicide prevention to coming out,” Lake said in a statement. “I will continue to be an active and passionate voice for subjects that are close to my heart through a variety of platforms.”


Bedwetting is the unsexiest symptom produced by the deep sleep disorder and Barbara Moore knows that Ricky’s audience will learn how this unsexy problem can negatively impact the rest of someone’s life.

The Ricky Lake promotion announced:

Sexsomnia and other sleeping disorders.


March 7 – From insomnia to sexsomnia, the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke claims that more than 40 million Americans are affected by sleep disorders.  Ricki explores some of the more bizarre behavior that today’s guests have experienced.


Chelsea and her ex-boyfriend, George, hit it off as soon as they met, but their relationship ran amuck at bedtime when Chelsea was repeatedly awakened by George’s unconscious attempts to have sexual intercourse in the middle of the night, a phenomenon known as “sexomnia.”


Also, Evelyn is a mother of four who suffers from insomnia. For the last 15 years, she’s been taking sleep aids — the only problem is they cause her to sleep walk, talk and eat and she doesn’t remember anything the next morning. Concerned for her safety, her kids have taken to policing her during the night and shot home video of her in action.

And, Ricki meets a young boy, Thomas, who was diagnosed with narcolepsy and cataplexy when he was 11-years-old.
