Is it possible for a woman to have an orgasm while she's asleep?

About two weeks ago, I had a dream that I was masturbating, and had a great, amazing, earth shattering orgasm. I have no problem having orgasms either in sex with a partner or masturbation, but I don't have earth shattering ones often. I woke up for a second after the dream, and my girly bits were sore and swollen. I actually forgot about it until a few days ago, when I masturbated (awake) which made me remember the "dream." I was quite groggy when I woke after this dream, but do distinctly remember feeling as I do after having an orgasm, normally.
I know males have been known to experience wet dreams, and certainly know people can have dreams of orgasming - but is it possible for a woman to actually have an orgasm completely when she's asleep? How does this work? Has anyone ever experienced this?
