I'm 23 and I masturbate 4-6 days a week. Often when I do not masturbate I ejaculate during my sleep. Sometimes I masturbate before bed even when I'm not in the mood just to avoid this problem. This often happens even when I do not feel particularly horny before going to bed, or think about sex much at all that entire day. Occasionally I will have a nocturnal emission even when I have masturbated before bed, but this is pretty rare. This has been going on for several years and I was under the impression that (frequent) nocturnal emissions typically occur during puberty but stop after adolescence. I would appreciate any advice or insight—does this happen to other guys my age or older? I'm afraid I may not be helping the situation by continuing to masturbate regularly, because my body takes this to be the norm, but I'm afraid that if I cut back I'll just *** in my sleep every night.
