Here are some ...: Do you mean you've experienced nocturnal orgasm like men having wet dream? If so, that is normal and you don't need to worry about it. More? Seek professional counseling or ask the adults who you can trust timely.

Yes: It's not really "masterbation" when you are asleep. Nocturnal emissions are also called "wet dreams" and are very common among young men.
