One thing for sure is it comes from what you look at during the day. It can also be a normal discharge and its something you shouldn't feel bad about at all. All normal people have it and if you look at chazel people who don't have it are people like yakov avinu and eliyahu hanavi. us normal people do get it. tifilas hampil has a tefillah about this for this reason.

I think it's in the gemora, something like "hameharher bayom ba leyedei ....... balayla".

So it's definitely influenced by what we see and think about during the day.

It can also be a natural consequence of not having another outlet for a while, especially when stopping after having done it frequently. It builds up in the body and has no place to go.

What to do: There are halachos about how to sleep, on the side not on front or back. Also there is a segula to say the first 4 kapitlach of tehillim before going to sleep. In many shuls there is a minhag to do this at the end of Maariv on Yom Kippur night.

Hatzlacha, and KOT!!! (do you know what that means yet?, it's part of the initiation rites here  :) )

Gevura!
!אנא עבדא דקודשא בריך הוא

And every day that you want to waste, that you want to waste, you can
And every day that you want to wake up, that you want to wake, you can
And every day that you want to change, that you want to change, yeah
I'll help you see it through...

 I disagree with most of you chazel dosent really like this whole idea of doing the act in the dream even though its not your fault just take a look what the missur sefurim say about it...

Hi,

Wet dreams come from seeing attractive images of women during the day.
They also come from sleeping on your back or your stomach.

I religiously sleep on my side to avoid wet dreams.

Good night my friend!
Stay clean and try sleeping on your side.
Be an inspiration to yourself by reaching new heights with each passing day

Of course the musser seforim say its no good, and they also say you should fast and roll in snow. The stipler writes that the musser seforim seem to leave out what the good side of the coin is, saying away from it and the reward that we get. My point is that we in 2011 shouldnt get down bec of this bec it happens to ALL and we have to do our best to prevent it but if it happens don't get carried away with felling tamei and low etc...
