Wet dreams are when a person orgasms involuntarily while they are sleeping because of a dream, which may or may not be erotic.

They are called wet dreams because when a male has this type of dream, he may awaken with wet clothing or bedding. This is because semen, the fluid containing sperm, is released during ejaculation.

However, the same term is also used to refer to when a woman orgasms during sleep.

Wet dreams are not caused by masturbation during sleep; they occur without any manual stimulation.

Research has found that, on average, 8 percent of dreams have some sexual content. In the same study, both men and women reported having an orgasm in about 4 percent of their erotic dreams.

There are many myths about wet dreams, which can make them confusing or cause anxiety if a person does not know what to expect.

1. Wet dreams do not reduce sperm count

Some people believe that wet dreams will reduce a man's sperm count. However, wet dreams are a way for the testicles to remove older sperm and help with the natural formation of new, healthy sperm in the body.

2. Women can have wet dreams

Many people associate wet dreams with men or, more specifically, adolescent boys, but women can also have wet dreams.

A female wet dream may result in orgasm as well as additional vaginal secretions from arousal.

Men may be more prone to wet dreams because they naturally produce several erections a night.
