Preventing wet dreams

    This is a somewhat controversial topic, as the consensus today is that wet dreams are harmless and are a sign of progress in one's reboot. Be that as it may, anyone who has experienced the phenomenon and its increased frequency after a period of abstinence knows how unpleasant and unnerving it can be. I'd like to discuss possible solutions or preventative measures against it. My own experience has been as follows: Before my reboot I had occasionally had wet dreams throughout my adolescence. Memory is often faulty with such matters, but I can safely say that from puberty up till stopping masturbation I had between 5 and a dozen of them. Then, suddenly, near the end of August everything changed: I counted 10 between that time and mid October. Since then I've managed to avoid them. I tried to correlate my wet dreams with excessive blood sugar levels (from too many sweets etc. before bed), but that has proved inconclusive. For now, at least, I'm on a 26 day streak without a wet dream. Though the sexual dreams that tended to trigger these moist episodes still occur from time to time.

    I notice too, that wet dreams for me occur more frequently after eating sugar. Not sure if it's the sugar itself that causes this or just having high dopamine levels throughout the day (as a result of consuming the sugar in the first place).

    Wet dreams are your body's natural release, and unless you're doing something that is causing them before bed (fantasizing, looking up porn, etc.), I don't think you have to worry about them too much. I'm no psychologist, but something tells me there's likely some level of anxiety to this (and I do think having excess sugar or blood levels that are off) might be a factor. Are you eating 3 meals a day and keeping your blood sugar on an even keel?

    The wet dreams I've had in this current phase have always been accompanied (I'd really be more comfortable using the word"caused") by a sexual dream in which I reach climax. I don't know if research has shown wet dreams to provoke the same release of hormones as a normal orgasm, but if they do then they have consequences on mood, sexual drive, etc.
    I might add, and those who have experienced the same can no doubt sympathize, that usually those dreams are nightmares playing with my guilt. Thus sometimes I wake up in the morning with a sigh of relief knowing that I didn't actually give in to my impulses to masturbate and that it was only a dream. Sometimes it's not just masturbation but also reliving my most depraved sexual and pornographic fantasies. They are deeply unsettling and hurt my confidence.
     
  5. Dude just take cold showers before you go to sleep, this will calm you and your penis.

    A reiki master told me, that these wet dreams occur when we have to much sexual energy that needs to be released somewhere. This energy accumulates when we do the celibate thing, or No PMO. Instead of releasing it through penis, one should involve this energy in some activities, while your body is resting from PMO.

    Great topic i am going through some serious wet dreams
    i keep track of them in my iphone the minute i wake up from it.

    I try to squeeze my PC muscle when i realize im cumning in my dream and this saves alot of the cum from coming out, but this is more like sympthom curing.

    I found this book http://www.dlshq.org/download/brahmacharya.pdf been incredibly helpful,

    I try the yoga poses (head stands ) every morning for 2.5 minutes cant say how effective it has been.

    also im discovering most wet dreams occure from 4:30 to 8:00 am, so i try to wake up early to avoid the wet dream phase.

    Try to avoid drinking water three hours before bed. A full bladder can make it easier to get nocturnal erections which means you're half way to those wet dreams!

    Instead of avoiding wet dreams, just let them run their course. The reason you are experiencing more wet dreams after committing to abstinence, is because your body is having to adjust to a smaller demand. But it takes time for the supply and production to shrink to meet the demand. But this will take time. Just let your body find balance on its own. If you try to fight this natural process, it will cause frustration and anxiety which is the WORST thing you can do in your reboot. Just let it run its course, and your wet dreams will dwindle.

    If you find yourself subconsciously fighting your wet dreams during sleep like I do, just tell yourself during meditation to just let it happen and don't fight it. Let that thought sink in deep, and it will help you just have the wet dream instead of fighting it.

    A personal reccomendation to avoid wet dreams:

    Do not go to sleep again.. This means, just think you wake up at 7 and then you realize it's weekend and go to sleep again.. BOOOM! it's possible to have a wet dream

    Meditation before bed and avoiding sexual thoughts during the day may help.

    Your dreams generally feature thoughts/worries from waking hours. I had dreams similar to this as well, and I found not thinking about rebooting/PA was effective.

    Wet dreams always feel like a disappointment to me when I have them as well, and they usually lead me to MO or PMO in the days following - although I'm not sure why. I would normally have a WD within the first 7 - 9 days of rebooting so at the moment I am holding up well! As someone has said on a post above, I seem to notice wet dreams happening more when I drink water before I go to bed, so lately I've tried to avoid drinking 2 hours before going to sleep, and so far its going well as I've gone at least 12 days without one.

    You can't stop them but you can delay them a lot by not having any sexual thoughts/encounters.

    I sometimes use a thick shoe lace and make 3 loops in it and then put the loops around my penis before I go to bed. So if I get an erection I will wake up. I would avoid any sugary food including bread three hours before going to bed.

    I want to tell all of you that wet dream isn't a problem.You know why I feel so shit after wet dream?I suffered from Post orgasm illness syndrome.My symptoms negative though,depression,social anxiety,straw hair,acne,lack of motivation,feeling very cold.They fade away after a week.Some find Niacin(flush),Garlic,Fenugreek,Saw palletto to relieve their symptoms.Please visit this website Poiscenter.com

    Best way to avoid wet dreams is to tie your legs together, no joke. It prevents you to rubbing your penis towards your bed which will lead to wet dream.

    When I started nofap I had wetdreams like 2-3x a week but then I just tied my legs together and I havent had any wet-dreams since then.

    The goal is not to not have wet dreams, I don't even think that's possible. Your goal is to learn how to manage it and understand that your body is in need, but porn isn't the solution

    I think having frequent wet dream is probalamatic, I do suffer from them from time to another ( 3 times or more in a week)

    its more related to inflammation , programmed nerves , high levels of stress also shallow sleep (not deep)

    I also agree with going back to sleep and eating before going to bed, its one of the reasons of me having a wet dream
