Title: Wet Dreams
Post by: Perey2 on June 09, 2010, 04:53:17 AM
Hello friends

I have posted in the past on the hisandherhealth forum with the name Perey, before the great arrival of Alan. I had high hopes that zinc could help the problem, that however proved not to be the case. I have lurked on the forums but have had nothing to contribute. This changed tonight.

What happened was my first wet dream for more than 15 years. With the wet dream came the most powerful orgasm I can remember feeling. My EA began about 12+ years ago and since then I've maybe twice had an "almost orgasm" during intercourse. This sleeping orgasm however was the best of all. During the orgasm I actually woke up and the good feeling immediately dropped down.

I'm not sure what to read into this. On one hand I'm glad my body can actually still orgasm. On the other hand I feel this means the problem is mental rather than physical.

Has anyone else had a similar experience?

Best regards,
Perey

Congratulations. Here's hoping that you're turning it around.

Let us know what you've recently changed. Only the zinc? Just what are you taking?

Thanks, but I haven't really changed anything, and I actually stopped taking the zinc some months ago. Further "experimentation" last night resulted in a standard disappointing  "orgasm"..

What this says to me, is that my body still has the capacity to orgasm under some conditions. Being asleep obviously makes me completely relaxed, maybe that's the key?

I'm 45, and probably only had wet dreams a handful of times in my life, all in my teens. I think I have across the board sexual issues.

This would be an interesting poll topic for us.
 
Title: Wet Dreams Poll
Post by: NoFun on June 23, 2010, 08:16:55 PM
I thought this could be interesting. We'll see. I'll try to find estimates of the general population. You're invited to do the same.

Yow, I looked into Wikipedia. I am way behind my quota. To me, the most shocking thing are 50 year old married guys still having maybe 8 a year, on average. I haven't had more than 5 total in my entire life.

You can see the results of an online wet dream poll.
http://www.misterpoll.com/polls/265759/results

The All Knowing Wikipedia says:
https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Nocturnal_emission (https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Nocturnal_emission)
...
The frequency of nocturnal emissions is highly variable. Some men have experienced large numbers of nocturnal emissions as teenagers, while others have never experienced one. 83% of men in the United States will experience nocturnal emissions at some time in their life.[3]  For males who have experienced nocturnal emissions the mean frequency ranges from 0.36 times per week for single fifteen-year-old males to 0.18 times per week for forty-year-old single males. For married males the mean ranges from 0.23 times per week for nineteen-year-old married males to 0.15 times per week for fifty-year-old married males.[4]  In some parts of the world nocturnal emissions are more common. For example in Indonesia surveys show that 97% of men experience nocturnal emissions by the age of twenty four.[5]

Never had any wet dreams, though I have had sexual dreams practically every night for the past 25 years or so... and to fill up the data before multiple questions become possible, I'm also one of those guys who has practically no sensation whatsoever (which really annoys me, as my libido is essentially skyhigh, but it never amounts to anything because ultimately I can't be bothered about something that feels essentially the same as shaking hands).

I dont really remember my dreams much but I am sure I have sexual dreams.  Only remember a few of my sexual dreams.

So far, we're showing quite a pattern. Way on the low side.

I have sexual dreams about once every 2 months, and they're always as unpleasurable as in real life, any ejaculation in my dreams is rare and usually results in waking up to evidence of a real ejaculation, having taken place.

Not since my mid teens, and I don't remember very many at all.

In my teens I constantly had wet dreams.

The last wet dream was 3 years ago at age 30.

I have experienced chronic EA for 13 years.

Michael,
Did you feel good  during your wet dreams after having  EA ?

Michael,

No -- those EA wet dreams felt exactly like the sensation as urinating

My ejaculations have felt 0-3 for 13+ years.

I think NoFun may be onto something with this one and his statistics.

I've been reflecting on this, I only had wet dreams before the onset of EA and none that I can remember since. When I had them they felt just like any other orgasm but I certainly had very, very few (perhaps 5 or 6), especially compared to the quoted averages.

So I wonder if this is some kind of precursor to getting EA in the future. Once again I think it is important to compare those who have hardly any sexual sensation left against those who just lack sensation at orgasm.

You're a really interesting case.

I take it you're the 100+ guy on the poll?

If you don't mind being some questions, can you describe the onset of EA for you?

And what frequency of wet dreams and orgasms you've had?

To fill in the table, just quote my message, and replace the each x with the appropriate number. I don't want to be a pain, but I think seeing all the numbers could really help.

I think that is important too. There are probably multiple ways to get EA, but it does seem that a lot of us are way below average on wet dreams. I'm taking that as an indicator of low sexual function.

That's what makes Michael's case so interesting. At one point, at least, he was superhuman on the wet dream front. And I think having orgasms when he had them. He's got a huge turnaround. How did that turnaround happen?

A new version of the list software is almost available. It will have the option to put multiple questions into a poll. We can compare some concrete data.

I wish you folks had availed yourselves of the 23andme sale on their gene testing. Comparing genes would really be interesting.

The Andrologist I saw tells me that very few wet dreams is normally an indication of low testosterone levels.

My latest blood tests show that I am right in the middle of the normal range, so that's not my cause but it would be interesting to hear from others.

My t level also around the middle of the normal range and i also don't have wet dreams.

I believe wet dreams only occur when there have been not much ejaculations at wake-time and prostate is always full with semen.

To my knowledge, I've never had a wet dream.   And have testosterone right in top of the reference range, plenty of desire...gf's who always desire me....but ya.  No wet dreams.   Enough sexual dreams, can't think of many lately...but they definitely happen more than other kind of dreams, And I'll usually wake up with a hard on.  My dreams are either sexual or real life boring situations.  :S

Quote
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of administration of sex steroids on self-reported sexual responses and behaviors in hypogonadal adolescents. .... We treated girls with oral conjugated estrogen and boys with testosterone enanthate ... The data showed significant effects of the administration of testosterone to boys causing increases in nocturnal emission and touching behaviors at the mid- and high doses.

So, wet dreams statistically increase when testosterone is given to hypogonadal teen boys. Probably, hypogonadism is correlated with fewer wet dreams.

I think i would have had never wetdreams if i really didn't pursue after them. Interesting thing is that i never had wetdreams as teenager. Then i wanted to have, so i realised i had to celibate for 6 months to achieve one (age of 21). I have had 3 wetdreams in my life, one time in a year after many months of celibacy. The wetdream orgams have had the best orgasms of my life. Now i am 32. I rarely have even sexual related dreams. Probably this anhedonia has something to do in my case with low testosterone or low dopamine levels.

Thought, if wetdreams are connected to anhedonia, then it just shouldn't be connected to testosterone as researches says that men has highest testosterone levels after 7 days celibacy and then T levels declines.

If it's almost every night, shouldn't it be a lot more (365 nights in a year)?
