Apologies for the delay in response.
Something confuses me: you think that she is masturbating every night, yet she says that YOU are sex addicted...does this mean that she is denying that she is in fact masturbating.
I am wondering who this is problematic for - she doesn't appear to be concerned (but this is not necessarily the case). In cases like this I would wonder whether either you are misunderstanding what is going on (i.e. are you 100% certain she is masturbating), or whether she is embarrasssed/to afraid to discuss what is going on for her (i.e. she is masturbating but is too emabarrassed to discuss this).
If she is masturbating, it is indeed not a common occurrence for women at this age - so I wondered whether she is possibly having a problem of sorts (e.g. persistent arousal disorder where she feels symptoms of arousal even when she is not being sexually stimulated and is masturbating in an attempt to relieve the feeling).
Given that she is refusing to discuss the matter, all that you can do is tell her that you see her being tired and that you think it is because of her being very disrupted at night - perhaps even talk about persistent sexual arousal disorder? She may feel less embarrassed if she is clear that you are not judging her...
