It is not unusual or abnormal for a sexually active male to experience wet dreams, or nocturnal emissions. While it's true that wet dreams are much more common in adolescent males who are not stimulating themselves to orgasm or having sex with others, wet dreams still may occur in "young adults", twenty to thirty-five years old.

Men usually have wet dreams when they are not discharging their semen through ejaculation, either with intercourse or masturbation. If you are not having wet dreams, it is probably because you are discharging your ejaculate when you masturbate. Either way, this is not something to worry about.

See what would happen if you were not to masturbate or have intercourse for a while, say a week or two. Maybe a wet dream would occur. Maybe not. Your body knows when and how to best take care of itself in this regard.
