A nocturnal emission or wet dream is a type of spontaneous orgasm, involving either erection and/or ejaculation during sleep for a male, or lubrication of the vagina for a female. Nocturnal emissions are most common during adolescence and early young adult years, but they may happen any time after puberty. It is possible to wake up during a wet dream, or to simply sleep through it.

“Approximately 80% of our air pollution stems from hydrocarbons released by vegetation, so lets not go overboard in setting and enforcing tough emission standards from man-made sources.”
