In an e-mail group for Swedish translators, we have come
to discuss the phrase "wet dream". Some of us feel that only men can have a wet
dream, others that this is pure nonsense... Interesting, right?
This is the definition from Merriam-Webster Online:
: an erotic dream culminating in orgasm and in the male accompanied by seminal emission"
What do =you= say - must a wet dream be "accompanied by seminal emission"? Can both sexes have it? Does the phrase emanate from the involontary "wet dreams" that adolescent boys have?
