How do I stop moaning and making other strange noises in my sleep?

Over the past year I have started humming and/or moaning in my sleep. Sometimes I wake myself up with the sounds, but most of the time I end up sleeping through it and hear about it later from my sleep-deprived boyfriend. Many times it's short moaning sounds that can sound like a puppy whimper, but more often than not I give the impression that I'm dreaming about sexy times. (I'm not). Sometimes it's a straight up tuneless hum, like I'm meditating or something.
I have been noted on occasion to talk in my sleep since I was a wee tot, but this is a new development. My mom happens to do the same whimper thing. I'm scared it's genetic.
I'm starting to develop a bit of a complex. I frequently go on camping trips, cabin/hut trips, retreats or meetings for work where I'm sharing a tent/room with one or more people. I'm really scared of keeping people awake with these vocalizations, and have started avoiding such trips. Not to mention my poor man-friend who would appreciate a more restful night.
I haven't noted a pattern related to being really tired or alcohol or anything, I'm kind of at a loss of why I do this.
Does anyone have any experience with this? Did you find a solution? IS there a solution? Thanks!
