What’s a Nocturnal Emission?
A wet dream is an erotic dream that is so intense that a guy ejaculates (cums) in his sleep. Nocturnal emission is one of the ways the body gets rid of semen build up, so it usually doesn't happen during periods of masturbation or sex play. Very often guys don't remember the dream. If they don't know what's going on, they may think they've "wet the bed."
Nocturnal Emissions occurs when whitish fluid called semen is released through the penis while a boy or a man is sleeping. Nocturnal emissions are most common during teenage and early adult years
It is associated with the fact that, males typically get an erection often during sleep and the semen released owing to the direct result of the stimulation caused by either erotic dreams, or memories of waking sexual activities but many men claim to have had nocturnal emissions without accompanying erotic dreams and another common theory is that wet dreams are the way the body disposes of "built-up" semen,
Although wet dreams are most common among teenage guys, many men also have nocturnal emissions as adults. Some guys never have wet dreams, but most do. Dreams or no dreams — both are normal.
And ladies needn't feel left out — women and girls have wet dreams, too. Their vaginas become lubricated as they become sexually aroused in their dreams. But there is less evidence of wet dreams in women than in men because less liquid is produced or spilled on the bed sheets. Wet dreams are also more common in men, because a man's penis gets more tactile stimulation (physical touch) during sleep than a woman's clitoris.
A wet dream is the uncontrolled ejaculation of semen from the penis during sleep. This is caused by sexual arousal and orgasm from dreams and/or physical stimulation like rubbing against blankets, the bed or a full bladder.
This is completely normal for males going through puberty. When boys enter puberty, a lot of hormonal changes occur. These changes can result in spontaneous erections during sleep, during the day and wet dreams. These are simply a part of normal sexual development.
Most boys experience wet dreams between the ages of 12 to 18. Generally males have fewer wet dreams once they start masturbating, reach the end of puberty or become sexually active.
What's Goin' On?
So what happens from the time you rest your eyes to the time your sheets get sticky? Here's how it works:
During sleep, from time to time, our bodies enter periods called REM, or rapid eye movement, which last from a few minutes to a half hour.
During these sleep periods, guys experience several erections, and girls experience vaginal lubrication.
If a dream during REM sleep is very arousing, the sensation of an erect penis pressed against a mattress can lead to erotic dreaming and ejaculation in guys. Girls can also have erotic dreams and get aroused to the point where they produce some liquid from their vaginas.
When It Gets Played Out
Having to change the sheets on a frequent basis can get annoying, and some guys may want to try to prevent wet dreams. In general, guys have nocturnal emissions less often if they are ejaculating while they are awake, either from masturbation or sex play with a partner. The same goes for girls who have wet dreams.
Of course, many girls and guys are perfectly content with their wet dreams. And that's fine too. Remember, having wet dreams is natural, normal, and nothing to be embarrassed about. In fact, many people believe that nocturnal emissions actually help to relieve stress. And on top of all that, they feel pretty good!
How common is Nocturnal Emission?
The frequency of nocturnal emissions is highly variable. Some men have experienced large numbers of nocturnal emissions as teenagers, while some men have never experienced one in their lives
Usual rate of nocturnal emissions are once during a period of 15-30 days are considered physiological (normal) while that occurring twice a week or more and associated with symptoms such as dizziness, weakness and insomnia etc., are considered pathologic (abnormal)
PHYSICAL & PSYCHOLOGICAL INFLUENCES OF EXCESSIVE NOCTURNAL EMISSION:
1. Hormonal disorders (lower testosterone or androgen)
2. Abnormal sperm production or function (Most cases of male infertility are due to sperm abnormalities)
3. Impaired shape and movement of sperm (structure (morphology) of the sperm are abnormal or the movement (motility) is impaired)
- 4. Low sperm concentration (A normal sperm concentration is greater than or equal to 20 million sperm per milliliter of semen)
- 5. No semen (The absence of ejaculate may occur in men)
6. Sexual issues (Difficulties with erection of the penis (erectile
- dysfunction), premature ejaculation)
- 7. Constipation
- 8. Being underweight
- 9. Diminished confidence and self-esteem
- 10. Guilt
- 11. Emotional upsets
Should nocturnal emission be treated?
Excessive nocturnal emission needs immediate medical assistance because it may lead to Hormonal disorders and decreased testosterone level can be the cause for inability to achieve an erection.
Another major cause which of course tends to lead to “low sperm concentration” and a low sperm count is one cause of male infertility.
When to seek medical advice?
Talk with our doctor if nocturnal emissions occurring twice a week or more.
10 Things You Ought to Know About...
1. Wet dreams are normal, they are believed to happen when the body is not getting release from the hormonal build up of the teen years or sudden "dry spells" in sexually active individuals.
2. Girls do get wet dreams, but they are far more common and much messier in guys.
3. Masturbation can, but won't always, put a stop to frequent wet dreams.
4. Some experts theorize that wet dreams are one of the many sub conscious ways that the body handles stress - they seem to happen more frequently in teens and young adults because this age group is thought to be under extreme stress.
5. Wet dreams are not drug induced.
6. Wet dreams do not signal a sexual abnormality or mean you are sexually deviant.
7. Wet dreams have nothing to do with being gay or straight, the type of wet dreams you have in no way represent your sexuality.
8. Wet dreams about taboo subjects like; incest, animals, rape, sex with a superior or elder, public sex, group sex, and homosexuality are common and do not have anything to do with your waking sexual preferences (it doesn't mean you secretly want to do these things).
9. There is no reason to ever feel guilty about having a wet dream, they are subconscious and can not be easily controlled or manipulated..
10.Many people have wet dreams and don't even know it is happening, for guys the morning mess is often the only evidence and for girls they can go unnoticed - for this reason they may be more common in girls than is currently believed (under reporting may be the real reason girls seem to have them less often).
Erections and wet dreams
When the penis becomes rigid and elevated, it is called an erection. Erections occur in males prior to birth, during childhood, adolescence and adulthood. Although erections occur during sexual excitement or fantasy, they may occur during sleep. Sometimes in adolescents an erection may occur spontaneously without any obvious reason.
The penis has three cylindrical bodies of tissue called the corpus cavernosum and corpus spongiosum that produce an erection when the tissues are filled with blood. These tissues are sponge like and consist of compartments that are interspersed with many blood vessels. When the blood vessels are dilated, the compartments fill with blood. The penis enlarges in length and width, becomes rigid and assumes a position that is elevated compared to its flaccid, soft or resting state. Thinking sexy thoughts produces nerve impulses from the brain that initiates the erection through a complicated series of nerve pathways.
Erections in adolescents may occur from lifting heavy loads and healthy adolescents usually have sleep related erections every night. Often these erections are associated with dreams or rapid eye movement (REM) sleep; teens may have as little as two erections or up to six erections each night. Sexual activity seems to have no significant effect on the number of nightly erections. It is usual for teen males to awaken with an erection in the morning. This is usually due to the stimulation of a full bladder. Some authors suggest that large amounts of seminal fluids may also cause erections in the sleeping or awakened adolescent.
Of course, the most common cause of erection in the adolescent male is sexual stimulation. According to Kinsey, a famous researcher of the human sexual response, a male’s first response to sexual stimulation is penile erection. Many adolescent males only need minimal sexual stimulation or sexual fantasy to achieve erection. After ejaculation, males lose their erection and there is a variable period of time before they can achieve another erection.
Erections that are prolonged due to disease may be painful. Termed priapism, this may be seen in males with sickle cell anemia. Males who cannot have erections may be impotent. Most teen males who cannot achieve erections do not have a disease process causing this problem. Rather, there may be a psychological barrier that is interfering with the capability to have an erection. Although it is unusual for male adolescents to require medication to achieve an erection, there may be circumstances where medication is indicated.
Virtually all males have experienced wet dreams or nocturnal emission. During puberty, sex hormones cause the testicles to produce sperm, and organs such as the prostate and seminal vesicles also produce other fluids that compose semen. Occasionally when these fluids build up in the body, a teen male will develop an erection during sleep followed by ejaculation or release of the semen. When this occurs during sleep, it is termed nocturnal emission. Some males may have romantic or sexy dreams when the emission occurs and others may not recall the dream. Although most males experience nocturnal emissions, some have them as frequently as a few times per week and some may have only one or two nocturnal emissions during their lifetime.
Nocturnal emissions will decrease or stop entirely when a male has ejaculation either through masturbation or sex with a partner. Wet dreams are a normal and expected experience of adolescence.
