Not the cause: While you may assume you are weak because of this it is not reasonable to do so. You cannot "masturbate " while asleep.It takes an awake & directed effort to do so.You can have a spontaneous nighttime emission of sperm, which is normal and not known to cause any medical problems. You may have a culturally guilt driven anxiety about the process, but these are based on myth.
