Dear Senior,

Nocturnal emmissions, i.e. wet dreams are a very normal occurrence. Every night as men sleep the body does its own "system checks", including the penis. It is very common for men to have a number of erections during the night. If men have a significant reduction in frequency of sex, such as you have described, it is alot more likely that a man may experience a wet dream during sleep as the body takes itself through its checks. An erotic dream coinciding with a nocturnal erection can result in a wet dream, but dreaming is not always necessary, a wet dream can happen without active dreaming, the body checks in itself can produce the wet dream.

There is no cause for concern, just extra launndry.
