Reasons Why People Tend to Have Wet Dreams

October 7, 2011

The adolescent stage, or puberty, is a crucial phase for every human being. There are inevitable changes: physically, emotionally and mentally. These changes, no matter how hard we try to disregard them, will cause embarrassment most of the time. Believe me, I know.

With all the changes I have gone through, I don’t think I’d want to back track to the whole process. And so, I have become more interested to check out what young boys are going through as they are slowly transforming into men. I always thought they have it easy, and that reflects as unfair to me (I simply feel bitter in the thought that I have to suffer from menstrual cramps every moth).

And so I read about Wet Dreams.

Wet Dreams

This may occur to both boys and girls, but wet dreams are usually subject to the males. In medical language, a wet dream is also known as Nocturnal Emission; Nocturnal means night, and Emission means discharge. When this is happening, semen is being emitted from the penis while during a dream of sexual nature. It may also be caused by physical stimulation. Such stimulation can be caused by running through a blanket, a pillow, or simply having a full bladder. Although, some experts say there are no studies yet that has proved the theory that dreams with sexual images are connected to the discharge of semen while asleep. Nevertheless, a wet dream is usually reported when there are dreams connected to sexuality.

This may be really embarrassing to young boys undergoing wet dreams, but it can not be controlled. It occurs simply because their bodies are producing more testosterone, a male hormone. Entailing it is the spontaneous erections of the male reproductive organ; it is a normal part of the sexual development. Not only can it happen to young boys, but adults can experience it as well.

Now that I have learned about wet dreams, I guess becoming a man also has its own initiation. I still feel it’s unfair because we women have to go through it every month until we reach menopause. But then again, females can handle so much.

Young men have their own respective signs, each one telling them that they are another step closer to manhood. Wet dreams are a part of it, no matter how shy or guilty you feel about it. No need to be embarrassed, you should be proud – you are becoming a Man.
