Our expert says:
This is roughly equivalent to sleepwalking - actions that are being done without conscious control. It tends to occur in a particular part of sleep, and it is possible to use medications which can suppress that part of sleep, and thus suppress unwanted behaviours. It should probably best be considered a normal variant, but as it is so embarrassing, you might want to see a sleep doctor to try and find some medication which will help without causing side-effects.
