Do Women have Wet Dreams?
So why a hub about women and Wet Dreams? Because many women aren’t aware as to whether they do or do not have wet dreams. And the many women that do have them, better known asNocturnal Orgasms or Emissions, most, keep it under the covers, sort of speak. Then there are those who have never had one and others who do but are unsure given the severity or intensity of the orgasm.
My own experiences as a woman, not until after childbirth, had me bedazzled because no one ever talked about female wet dreams and I knew I was having them. So I privately did some reading and found out some interesting facts.
I thought this content could shed some light for both sexes regarding female wet dreams as this video shows you many women are unclear about the entire subject matter. So let’s dive in, shall we;
What is a female wet Dream?
Wet dreams typically occur in males during their prepubescent and teenage years. Though they usually taper off as males mature. Some may experience them in adulthood.
Wet Dreams are generally defined aserotic dreams that culminate with an orgasm. They are very commonly associated with nocturnal emissions. An involuntary ejaculation that occurs when one’s asleep.
We now know women experience these wet dreams also, not as common or often as men.
When a female experiences a wet dream, the vagina becomes lubricated as she becomes sexually aroused in her dream. However, less liquid is produced by females, leaving less evidence she has had a wet dream.
Women can have wet dreams from the age of 14 for the rest of her life. Your body responds to sex asleep the same way it would if you were awake. There is a fortunate increase in involvement as the dream progresses.
Females and wet dreams
First and Foremost female wet dreams are not rare nor harmful, but perfectly normal
Actually women who experience these dreams, wish they could have them more. Wet dreams and fantasy’s are a way for us to explore the forbidden.
A means for us to explore our sexuality without actually acting on it.
We don’t hear or talk very much about female wet dreams primarily because it is much more common in males, with a greater focus on male sexuality both in science and people in general.
It is also perfectly normal for a woman to not have an orgasm in her sleep or know she has had one.
It’s noteworthy to mention, a female wet dream cannot be directly compared to that of a males.
Women rarely ejaculate fluid at the point of orgasm (there are exceptions-however, that’s another Hub someday) like men.
But women do have nocturnal orgasms, just not as frequently as men. Women who do have orgasms during sleep, usually have them several times a year.
Some History and Stats-The Facts
In 1953, Alfred Kingsey, the famous sexuality researcher, found that nearly 40% of the 5,628 women he interviewed experienced, at least once, a wet dream by the time they reached 45 years of age.
A smaller study in 1986, in the Journal of Sex Research, found that 85% of the women who experienced nocturnal orgasm had done so by the age of 21.
Some even before the age of 13.
Who has Wet Dreams?
40% of women have at least one wet dream by the age of 45. This compares to males at 80%.
It does not mean you lack in sex or have an overactive sex drive.
Sometimes a show or movie that arouses you may trigger this dream. I suggest you watch it again, curl up with a Teddy between your legs and see what happens.
Fewer than 10% of women compared to 50% of men report having wet dreams more than 5x a year.
Men often experience their first orgasm during a wet dream, where women rarely have an orgasm except by sex or other means first.
Why do wet dreams occur?
Doctors are not 100% sure why wetdreams occur but there are some arguable theory’s.
while asleep the body is actually experiencing what it is dreaming
for males, due to a build up of sperm and need to ejaculate
testosterone drugs increase the number of wet dreams
according to web.md, during an 8 hour period males will get an erection 6-8 times and females will lubricate the same number of times
once asleep the body goes through checking test of sexual body parts
