Nocturnal Emissions - Causes Of Nightfall
Dr. Mital John • onHealth & Beauty 8 years ago • 3 min read

According to the studies, 83% of men at some point experience nocturnal emission. When a young man experiences nocturnal emission, he will be shocked. If the person is unaware of the normal sexual process, he will be bewildered at what is happening to him. Sometimes, it is hard to find out what exactly caused the involuntary orgasm. Sometimes, the person wakes up once the orgasm has occurred but in other instances, the person sleeps through it.

The topic is very personal making it hard to bring the matter to health care professional. Men should know that it is common and they should feel comfortable enough to discuss about it.


Ejaculations during sleep are most often tied to erotic dreams, but just like masturbation frequency, there is no direct link between the two. Some men will have vivid erotic dreams that lead to a spontaneous orgasm, while others will regularly have erotic dreams but never have a nocturnal emission. Some may wake up during their nocturnal emission, but it is just as common to sleep through it entirely. Others may not even achieve an erection during a nocturnal emission. It simply varies from person to person.

Causes of Nightfall or Night Discharge

Some individual think that night discharges are the direct result of the stimulation caused by either erotic dreams or memories of waking sexual activities. However, there has been little experimental evidence to support this theory, and many men claim to have had Night discharge without erotic dreams. Another common theory is that wet dreams are the way the body through away excess of semen, while scientifically it is not proved. Night discharge provides a kind of physiological safety valve for sexual tension.
