    No, I think the answer to your question is "no."

    Sin is usually considered to be either a) an act you commit against God's will or b) something that you decide not to do in opposition to what you know to be right.

    Something that happens to you while you are asleep is not a sin. You have little or no control over it!

    You said that you think masterbaition is not a sin. Why do you think this?

    It is not a sin per se, but it comes from sin. In another words your mind still has sinful thoughts, which in turn come in your sleep, causing you to have nightly emissions. Is it something that you have to worry about? Not really, but if you got rid of the lustful thoughts through daily prayer, it would most likely not happen. It means your mind is not totally focused yet, and still needs time to get rid of the subconscience thoughts in your mind.

    To reiterate the point, masturbation / emissions whether voluntarily or accidently are not wrong

    It's Unclean. Wash yourself.

    Read Leviticus 15. for a full understanding of this. Take note to Lev15:16

    First off not all nocturnal emissions are caused by "Sex" dreams. Nocturnal emissions are a way of your testicles releasing excess sperm. Your testicles are constantly making sperm and have three main ways of getting rid of the extra. Ejaculation from stimulation, Urination (yes some of your little guys can escape that way), and Nocturnal emissions. Because sperm have a fairly short expiration date and your body is constantly making more it's important to get rid of the excess.

    As far as masturbation being a sin that's a whole other Post.

    May I add to friar tuck's response that you can also 'get rid' of your sperm back into the body. When a sperm dies it can decompose and be absorbed into capillary's and cells, this is then abosrbed back into the body. This is done because sperm is very high in protein and therefore energy. This is also why the testicles (sorry about gory details) are often pinker than the rest of the body as there is much blood flowing there to fulfil this task.
    Nocturnal emissions occur when there is an overload (lol) which is often brought on by sexual thoughts (these release hormones that cause an increased rate of sperm production) and then often during puberty as there is obviously many hormones flying about then!
    Connected to this is the sexual thoughts often attributed with wet dreams. These are NOT bad as they are often used by the mind for stimulation to ejaculation as sometimes that is needed ~ it just comes with the hormone release really same as you start fancying girls with the onset of puberty.

    Sorry if this has made you cringe!

    Wow! I can't believe this is the first discussion I joined in here. Masturbation is sin. How may it be otherwise?

    Nocturnal emissions are a bit harder for me to explain though. The older I get the less frequent they become. I can't relate most of the ones I remember to specific thoughts or dreams. It probably IS, as the brother said, related to the sin that is still resident in me. Thus, NEs are sinful in the same way that I was conceived in sin.

    And let's don't be shy about this guys. Brothers should provide this kind of support for one another.

    Wet dreams have nothing to do with lust and are not sinful.

    It just means that your body is working the way God intended it to.

    Nocturnal emissions are a normal bodily function. They are not always associated with erotic dreams, and even if they are, one has no control over his dreams. I don't think you can sin in your dreams.

    I've had plenty of sexual dreams over the years and I've never had an NE. I don't feel like I've missed out on anything.
