How to Have More Wet Dreams

By  | 

Say what you want about gay wet dreams, they’re real and spectacular. You know they are! Unfortunately, as people age, wet dreams seem to happen less and less, many of us are left waking up in the morning staring at the ceiling, screaming, “Why God Why!” I don’t know about you, but I want those dreams back!

I had a wet dream about Mario Lopez once. We were running on a track in a park—he was shirtless in red shorts (duh). We got to the end, and before I knew it, he pulled me to the back of a shed (which magically appeared) and pulled down my pants. Right before I was about to explode in ecstasy, I woke with a little love juice in my PJs. As many times as I tried to repeat the dream multiple times, it seemed to be a one and done type of thing …

Most men have wet dreams, especially during puberty. It’s a topic we don’t understand much about, but everyone knows it exists. One pattern that’s typical in most guys who have these dreams is that they usually happen when the dreamer is not sexually active. In other words, when you’re masturbating a lot, chances are you won’t have as many wet dreams.

Before you lock away the lotion and tissues, let me clarify it’s not only a lack of masturbation that jumpstarts wet dreams. It’s also the way you’re sleeping in general. For you to have a legit wet dream (one that seems completely and utterly real), you need to be in deep sleep, i.e. REM Sleep. 

We’ve heard “REM” before — it’s the stage of sleep we all strive to be in because it recharges our brain, body, and organs. This is the stage where we dream most. It’s also the stage where more blood flows to our penis — a fabulous combination.

Research has shown that men have many erections while asleep. In many cases, we’re 100 percent hard, but don’t have a wet dream. For a wet dream to happen, it must come directly from our brain.

But… no one knows how it gets there. Perhaps the woody comes first, and then our mind gives in. Or maybe our brain stimulates us, and then our penis gives in. Whatever the case may be, there have been many times men have woken up mid-orgasm having no recollections why.

Here’s how we can help it along:

One study found that when we sleep on our stomach, we have more intense dreams (cross your fingers that one of them will be a sex dream). The position itself provides contact between the bed and our penis, which can subconsciously stimulate sense memories.

The real answer, however, is that no matter how much we try to achieve a wet dream, they only come when our brain allows it. If you actually want to test it, I suggest you stop masturbating for a while, sleep on your stomach and think of nothing but Mario Lopez until you dive into REM sleep wearing only a jock strap and a smile—even then you’re still taking a gamble.
