Why Do Men Have Wet Dreams?

Many men have experienced wet dreams at some point in their lives, with some having them more regularly than others. These types of dreams become more common during the teenage years, and while they do generally start to die down as men get older, they can happen to men of any age. For some it can be embarrassing while others simply accept that these dreams are a part of nature.

When a man has a wet dream, he ejaculates during sleep and you probably won’t realize you have had an orgasm until you wake up and see the fluids. Most men do not have wet dreams on purpose although there are many that would like to do this. There are lots of factors that are linked to having wet dreams, some of which we will look at in this article.

Why Do Wet Dreams Occur?

One questions that many men may ask is why they have wet dreams in the first place. Well, there could be a range of reasons behind this. For instance, it is widely accepted that men who have higher levels of testosterone are more likely to have these dreams. It is also thought that those who have not had sex or an orgasm for some time are more likely to have wet dreams. Even the position you sleep in could have an impact on your dreams according to some experts.

It is natural for people to think that a wet dream must be one that is very sexually oriented, but this is not the case. Some men do have erotic wet dreams that are based around sexual activity. However, there are many others who orgasm in their sleep despite the fact that the dream they have is in no way sexual.

Some believe that having a wet dream is a way of the body balancing hormone levels and controlling sperm levels. Some boys and men find these dreams very embarrassing, particularly younger boys who are still in their teens and who are still confused about sexual matters. However, it is important to remember that they are natural, and they are certainly nothing to be embarrassed about. Some men with partner are even nervous about their partner finding out, as they think it must be a form of cheating in their sleep. Again, these dreams are natural, and they may not even involve sexual dreams.

Some men believe that they know what causes them to have wet dreams. Some believe that watching porn before going to sleep or having fantasies without masturbating can cause them to have wet dreams. Some believe certain foods can do the trick such as eating cayenne peppers or dark chocolate. Some even believe that doing exercise before bed to increase blood flow to the private parts could do the trick.

While wet dreams are perfectly healthy and normal, experts and quick to point out that they should not be considered an alternative to a healthy sexual relationship with a partner.
