Masturbation and Wet Dreams[edit]

As the article says, it's the result of accumulated semen production.

Is not surprising given that erection is _physiological_ during REM sleep. (march 2005)

Where is this information from?

"As the article says, it's the result of accumulated semen production."

doesn't that contradict with the line: "Contrary to popular belief, the frequency that one has nocturnal emissions is completely unrelated to one's frequency of masturbation" ?

Good catch. I fixed it. Deco 02:18, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Also contradicts: "Another misconception is that wet dreams are the way the body disposes of 'built-up' semen, to make room for more; the body does not in fact need to do this, as is evident from the many men who ejaculate only on rare occasions. It is not known why nocturnal emissions actually occur."


Wet Dreams does not nessasarily occur due to sexual dreams. It can also happen in some horror dream which are totally unexpected. I have experienced. in morning totally confused as why it happened to me. (even though not done mastrubation since long time.) In india due to mastrubation or wet dreams can lead to many mental disorders inclusing susuidal tendancies, due to social impact.) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 118.94.109.168 (talk) 13:55, 8 February 2009 (UTC) The point here is right that nocturnal emission occur not only from sexual images but also from horror or some else normal dreams and teenage boy after get irritated just continue to think what now ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 103.14.183.68 (talk) 08:32, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

There is no source for "The frequency that one has nocturnal emissions has not been conclusively linked to frequency of masturbation." Can we get a page or something on the Kinsey report? Is there really no data on this? Anorderofmagnitude (talk) 17:41, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

Nocturnal, night[edit]

The name is really misleading. It happens during sleep, but not necessarily during night. --2.245.133.120 (talk) 17:08, 26 November 2016 (UTC)
