    Hello,

    I have been trying to not masturbate for quiet some time now and I have actually had success with that mission so far, however, I get those wet dreams now(I did not get those when I did masturbate).. Since those wet dreams makes me ejaculate, which is what I am trying to avoid by not masturbating, what is the point in even trying to not masturbate if you are ejaculating anyway after a certain time?

    Well, isn’t that a bit like asking “Why encourage people to properly dispose of their trash if some people are just going to litter anyway”?

    Just because it rains doesn’t mean you have to let it pour.

    I have yet to experience a wet dream during a NoFap challenge, so you would probably know better than me, but I’m guessing that wet dreams don’t create the same ‘chaser effect’ that many of us experience after relapsing with masturbation.

    The chaser effect leads to more masturbation, which often leads to porn when masturbating without it gets more difficult.

    Maybe he just doesn't like have his underpants filled with semen?

    Haha, that is not really it... Like, why would I try to stop masturbating just because I did not like semen in my underpants? :/ It is because that I want my semen to stay inside my body for as long as possible.

    Your body apparently thinks otherwise.

    Yes, I get that, but that is not really the point of my question bud :)))) The focus should rather be on the the big confusion about why you should try to stop masturbation, like to keep your semen inside for some time, if it comes out anyway...

    Well, I am no doctor but I think: if you masturbate is because you (mostly) are looking to pleasure yourself (you seek the stimulation). When you have a wet dream is your body just "trying to find some balance inside": you didn't look to ejaculate in your sleep, therefore you couldn't control the result, and if you continue your streak instead of taking the orgasm as a failure (or worse, as an excuse to actually relapse), you are still going to reboot completely.

    It's said wet dream frequency decreases over time as you go longer with nofap. It's just part of the healing process, releasing extra semen in your body.

    NoFap really isn't about keeping semen in your body. It's about getting your brain chemistry back to normal. Wet dreams don't really mess with your brain chemistry in the same way that porn and compulsive masturbation do.

    Maybe he wants to practice semen retention too.

    That's fine, but if he thinks wet dreams are a hindrance to that, he'll have to start sleeping with a piece of tape over his hole.

    What I do I adapt a new sleeping position, never on my stomach anymore.

    I want to say thank you for this comment because I just went through what this guy said and am glad you shared this but I still wish NoFap would clarify the grey area of Wet Dreams

    your body has too much semen and is releasing the valve that holds it all :) think of it like that.

    Wet dreams probably are a way of your mind coping with the change. You still have the memory of M as well as your subconsious mind desperately trying to push you back to your routine. Well over time it will start going away. Its just my personal understanding of it

    Orgasming by itself is not unhealthy by itself, your body does it for a reason ;)
