Question
What is your opinion on taking cold showers daily for suppressing sexual urges? also wet dreams have been a problem for me for the past year but they are slowly but surely reducing.i heard that the herbal medicine ashwaghanda is effective in stopping them.is it true or a just scam to buy their product?thank you

Answer
I don't know anything about herbal medicine.  The way to eliminate wet dreams is to masturbate frequently.  Masturbating 5 times a week or more will probably put an end to your wet dreams forever.  

I also don't think cold showers will make any difference.  A male might even feel hornier than usual after a cold shower.

Expertise

When it comes to celibacy/abstinence, I am more likely to point out the downside of being sexually abstinent. I don't advocate abstinence as a long-term sexual lifestyle. Abstinence is a good thing when the alternative is being sexual in an indiscreet manner, but it is a bad thing when a healthy sexual lifestyle of being monogamous with a partner is available. I frequently answer questions in the masturbation and male masturbation categories on AllExperts.com. I take all questions pertaining to sexuality.
