Wet dreams: top five facts

By Stephanie Haase Monday, October 14, 2019 - 19:45
Wet dreams – waking up in the middle of the night to wet and sticky sheets. Weird and unnatural? No, perfectly normal! Can women have them, too? Let's find out more in this article.

What is a wet dream?

Wet dreams (also known as nocturnal emissions or ‘night fall’) are spontaneous ejaculations in your sleep. With or without an erection, semen comes out of your penis. It will leave a wet patch in your bed. You haven't peed in bed, but you had an ejaculation! For some boys, a wet dream can be the first time they ejaculate. You can even have wet dreams without dreaming about sex.

Are wet dreams normal?

There is nothing wrong with having wet dreams. They are a normal part of growing up. Even if you have a lot of wet dreams it doesn't mean there's anything wrong with you. And they don't have any bad effects on your health.

Some people have wet dreams a few times a week. Others may only have a couple of wet dreams during their entire lifetime. The older you get, the fewer wet dreams you will have.

There is a 'cure'

Because in some cultures and religions wet dreams are seen as something bad and unhealthy, people often try to get rid of wet dreams with home remedies. For example herbal supplements or giving up watching television or eating meat. None of these will help!

But actually, there is one thing that will reduce the chances of having wet dreams: masturbation! The more you masturbate, the fewer wet dreams you will have, research shows. And for the record – masturbating won’t do you any harm at all either.

Women and wet dreams

Most people think wet dreams are something only men will experience, but oh no, it’s not true! Up to 40 percent of all women will have ‘wet dreams’ at some point in their lives. The vagina then becomes wet and lubricated. Women can even have intense orgasms at night, which may or may not be triggered by sexual dreams.

And just like the men's wet dreams, they are normal and nothing to worry about!

Censored dreams

Your brain can censor your sexual dreams! So you may think your dreams aren't sexual, but instead your brain may just be masking sexual symbols. Men for example may not dream about vaginas, but instead of tunnels and subways. And women dreaming of cigars, chimneys and rockets may in fact be dreaming about penises!

Next time you have a wet dream and you can just remember dreaming of nice, rolling hillsides and mountains, think again – your brain may have censored a dream about breasts! This seems to happen more to people who think talking, and dreaming explicitly about sex is frowned upon.

To protect the identity, the person in the picture is a model. This article was first published on August 7, 2012.

Honestly I was 67 yrs old when I had my first wet dreamI don't remember what I was dreaming but nit felt so real and woke up yelling my partners name and she woke me and that's when I ejaculated. I was kind of in shock looking at my still erect penis and the mess I made and she pushed my hand away from it I wasn't masturbating but she may have thought I was at first but I think I convinced her it was a wet dream And it seemed so real I wouldn't mind having another one Also I am sexually active
Bete kya aap nightfall ki baat kar rahe hai toh nightfall ya swapndosh bohot hi common baat hain isse na hi koi kamzori aati hai aur na kisi bhi tarah ki koi smasya hoti hai.

Bete swapandosh ya nightfall bohot common hai yeh koi bimaari nahi jiska ilaaz mojjud, isye aapko koi nuksan nahi hoga. Aur yadi shareer menin uttejna adhik hogi, sex ki bhavna zyada hogi toh sheeghr patan hone ki sambhavna bhi adhik ho sakti hai.

Anty ji mera night fal 5 din me ho jata hai koi bimari nahi hai night fal kitna din me hona chahiya ye bata dijiya ga jaldi jhad jata hai dawa lena padega yes no
Sorry bete hum aapko kisi bhee dawa ka naam nahi bata sakte aur bina doctor ke salah se kisi dawa ka istemaal swasth nahi hota hai. Lekin bete nightfall koi bimaari nahi jiska ilaaz mojjud ho, isse aapko koi nuksan nahi hoga. Yeh smajh lijiye ki nightfall ya swapndosh bohot hi common baat hain isse na hi koi kamzori aati hai aur na kisi bhi tarah ki koi smasya hoti hai.

Bete yeh smajh lijiye ki nightfall ya swapndosh bohot hi common baat hain isse na hi koi kamzori aati hai aur na kisi bhi tarah ki koi smasya hoti hai. Aur beta jaldi ho ne se koi baat nahi, dont worry. So sabse pehle toh apni partner ki body ko samjh lijiye- unko time dijiye. Aur yadi shareer menin uttejna adhik hogi, sex ki bhavna zyada hogi toh shighrpatan hone ki sambhavna bhi adhik ho sakti hai. Aisee stithi mein, partner par focus badhana, foreplay , pravesh karne se pehle bahut se alag alag kriyaein karna , jinse dono ko aanand mile, apne partner kee uttejna badhana, yeh sab activities sabse zaroori hain. Iske ilava, partner ke saath sex karne se pehle, ek baar hastmaithun kar saktey hain, utne samay pehele jitne mein ling mein tanaav aa jaaye. Condom ka istemaal bhi jaldi discharge kum karne mein madadgaar saabit ho sakta hai.

Beta takleef to sirf yeh hai ki kahi dog palat ke kaat na le. Jaanwar ke sath sex apne aap mein anaitik mana jaata hai kyunki isme koi razamandi nahin sehmati nahin. Saath hee saath koi infection/ beemari ka dar to bana hee rehta hai. Ab aage beta, marzi aapki!!
