What are wet dreams?

ANSWER

A wet dream is when you ejaculate while you're asleep. Ejaculate means to release semen (the fluid that contains sperm) from your penis. Usually, a wet dream happens while you're having a dream about sex. You may not even remember the dream.

You don't have to masturbate to have a wet dream. You can ejaculate without touching your penis.
