[[DoubleStandard Men]] [[ImAManICantHelpIt are]] [[TheUnfairSex such]] [[AllMenArePerverts perverts]] that they even ejaculate in their sleep. There is a perfectly normal (i.e. non-perverted) biological explanation for this, but Fiction Land likes to pretend that it's always a result of an EroticDream and/or ADateWithRosiePalms. Also, in Fiction Land, women never do this. (In real life, they do, but barring female ejaculation it's a lot harder for women to tell in the morning.) TruthInTelevision for both sexes, though this phenomenon is more the exception than the rule.
