You BET it's normal!: Congratulations! You're a grown man now, or nearly so. I'm surprised none of your friends have told you about this; you should talk with them more. It's something you should be pleased with and proud of. You can keep yourself comfortable by bringing yourself to climax -- hopefully you know how. When it's time to love someone, be responsible. Always, shun superstition & cherish who you are.

Perfectly: It shows that you have a healthy body and it's working as expected. And if you did have a pleasurable dream, that's good too. Best luck to you.
