Having an orgasm resulting in ejaculation while at sleep.



Common during teenage and early adult years, this is the ejaculation of sperm while asleep. It can be accompanied by erotic dreams, but not always, and this sleep orgasm can occur in various degrees of frequency.


Doctors in he 18th and 19th Centuries diagnosed those who had frequent night time ejaculation, with a disease called Spermatorrhoea. Treatment was the use of various drug treatments, as well as circumcision and castration.

While Christian beliefs associated Masturbation with being a sin, 'wet dreams' or 'nocturnal emissions' were not considered sinful acts, as they were 'involuntary'.

History (Legend): Medieval western occultism, wet dreams were thought to have been the result of succubus, associated with 'night terrors'.

Succubus is the notion of a demon appearing in one's dreams, to seduce and have sex with the sleeping person. The idea or notion was that these demons would drain the semen from the sleeping person, for use to fertilize women. This was the explanation of how demons could impregnate women.


In cultures where Masturbation is frowned on, most males (about 98%) will experience nocturnal emissions, while about 83% of Men in the USA will have such an experience.

Testosterone levels can effect the number of 'wet dreams' as well, as those who had high does of added testosterone had increased 'nocturnal emissions'

Kinsey also found that those who experienced their first ejaculation through 'masturbation' were younger than those who experienced their first ejaculation through a nocturnal emission.

Practice (Associated Acts): While the evidence is inconclusive, Kinsey held that the frequency of wet dreams were related to the amount a person masturbated when awake. The more the person jerked off, the less often they had 'wet dreams'

Noteworthy: While ejaculation usually results in a soft penis, this is not the case with 'wet dreams' in which case the penis remains fully erect, ready to go again. While it used to be considered an ailment, and treatment was recommended, there is no proof that night emissions are harmful in any way, nor that any of the so called 'treatments' are truly effective.

These 'involuntary orgasms' are not limited to those entering puberty, and do occur in males of all ages, though most older males have a reduced number of episodes, that isn't always the case.
