Healthy Alternative To Dream Dinners
No: If you are a normal, sexually-mature male and do not masturbate or have a partner, you will have wet dreams. One of the cults teaches that these are unhealthy. This is a lie intended to frighten teenagers. I personally know one pastor who left the cult rather than teach this. Being a man is difficult enough without having this frightening and false put into your head. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A resource: "healthy" versus "unhealthy"? No. But dreams can be a great resource for creativity and greater integration of one's personality.

Your choice: Both are healthy and anyone who tells you otherwise is misinformed or worse. I trust you're not obsessed with erotica so that it interferes with the other things you need to do. If you entertain yourself, which is most men's choice, you learn more about your mind & body. Vary your technique and thoughts to prepare you for possible future partner(s), and embrace your masculinity. ...Read more
Just started zoloft, experienced more vivid dreams, everything seems bright and a sense if euphoria- is this a healthy/common side effect?
It's yours: If you like it - enjoy it. If you're not sure, watch and keep a diary w/ your thoughts and feelings day by day about the effects. Report them to your therapist/doctor if you want a 2nd opinion to yours. If it's raining on a day w/ only a 20% chance - do you get less wet? How common doesn't matter - this is you. Healthy will mean feeling okay more than not and able to do what you need/want to do. ...Read more

My nocturnal emissions/wet dreams just don't stop after every 3 or 4 days.I even masterbated twice last week.is my health OK?should I masterbate more?
This is good: Zack, you're a grown man now. Nocturnal emissions are healthy and something that you should enjoy. Anybody who tells you otherwise is either massively ignorant or trying to deceive you. Enjoying your body while you're awake is healthy, too. You decide what's best. Maybe think about that one special person in your future, rather than internet trash. Maybe talk to Dad. Enjoy being a man. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How important are dreams /nightmares important in mental or overall health. Do they really play any part at all ?
Important: Poor sleep is not good for us. Nightmares can disturb sleep. Frequent bad dreams can indicate problems that need to be addressed during the day.

So frequent bad dreams should indicate the need to reassess what's going on in your life, changing what you can, if can't get some help ...Read more
