Involuntary Ejaculation (Nightfall) In Men

Involuntary Ejaculation (Nightfall) In Men

A nightfall, also referred to as a wet dream, sex dream, or sleep orgasm, is a spontaneous orgasm that occurs during sleep and involves ejaculation for males and vaginal wetness or an orgasm (or both) for females. It is medically referred to as a nocturnal emission, and is much more common in men than women. Women may have a nocturnal emission and not even realize it since they do not ejaculate.

Is it normal to ejaculate in sleep?

Although they can happen at any age after puberty, nocturnal emissions are most frequently experienced during adolescence and the early stages of adulthood. The process of nightfall, according to scientists, is entirely physiological.

Rarely, though, can excessive nightfall be a problem and necessitate treatment by weakening the penile nerves and muscles, excessive masturbation, fluctuating hormone levels, thinning semen viscosity, and a full bladder. Men may keep some of their sperm, but they release the extra at night.

Why do we experience nightfalls?

Nightfalls often correspond with the sexual activity of a person. If your mind is filled with sexual thoughts, it is more likely to experience nightfalls. On the other hand, studies have also shown that people can experience nightfall is their sexual activity is too low, as it is a natural way for the body to let go of its biological urges and complete the reproductive cycle. It is not possible to voluntarily control nocturnal emissions, although there are some steps that you can take if it starts becoming a problem for you.

How do you prevent nightfall?

As was mentioned earlier in this article, it is completely normal physiologically for either a man or a woman to experience one or even more episodes of nightfall. There aren't any physical harms that can be proven with scientific certainty to be caused by nightfall.

However, if having nocturnal emissions causes you mental discomfort, we advise that you talk to your psychiatrist about it. You should have a lot of success overcoming this stigma with the aid of a thorough discussion with your psychiatrist and pertinent counselling.
