How to stop wet dreams: Four ways to prevent ejaculation in your sleep

0

Thinking about sex doesn’t stop when you fall asleep and many men will be familiar with experiencing a “wet dream” or “nocturnal emission”.

Many males occasionally, wake up in the middle of the night with wet sheets and underpants. When this happens, they are probably experiencing something called nocturnal emissions, or “wet dreams.” A nocturnal emission is an involuntary ejaculation of semen that occurs during sleep. Studies show that approximately 83% of men experience a nocturnal emission at some point in their lives.

There is a difference between nocturnal orgasms and nocturnal emissions, because males can have a nocturnal orgasm (a sexual climax) without ejaculating (an emission of seminal fluids). Females can also experience a nocturnal orgasm, although there won’t be an emission.

There is nothing wrong with a person if he or she experiences a nocturnal orgasm or nocturnal emission, as they are normal and healthy experiences. If you have (or haven’t) experienced a wet dream, you should not feel ashamed. There is no way to prevent nocturnal orgasms or emissions from happening.

Guys don’t even need to touch themselves or masturbate during the steamy sleep session to orgasm.

Some lads will have frequent wet dreams, up to a few times a week, while others will only experience the odd night-time burst.

But according to a survey of American men, 83% of guys will ejaculate in their sleep at some point in their lifetime.

Wet dreams are completely natural and most common in teens going through puberty, but they can continue later into adulthood and it’s due to having high testosterone levels (rather than low-T).

If you do want to prevent sex dreams because you don’t enjoy waking up with a wet patch, here’s how to stop overnight orgasms.

1. Relax

It’s possible that feeling stressed out makes men experience more wet dreams, so make some time for yourself and chill out a bit.

Make sure you are sleeping enough, getting regular exercise and enjoying downtime away from work to feel more relaxed.

2. Sleep on your back

To avoid accidental stimulation during the night, sleep on your back and wear loose-fitting clothes.

3. Avoid pornography

Take your mind off dirty thoughts by avoiding sexual images and videos. Stay away from porn, naughty TV shows and naked pictures.

4. Develop a healthy relationship with sex 

If you’re in a relationship, be open and communicate with your partner about your feelings and wet dreams.

If you’re single, feel comfortable to masturbate as it will provide you a sexual release.

But sex researcher Alfred Kinsey believes there may be “some correlation between the frequencies of masturbation and the frequencies of nocturnal emissions”.

He said: “In general the males who have the highest frequencies of nocturnal emissions may have somewhat lower rates of masturbation”.
