What is Nightfall?
Many physical changes take place in a boy when he reaches adolescence. The most noticeable ones are the growth of the sexual organs and also hormonal changes in the body. Because of these, the boy starts to masturbate quite frequently and can be said to be in a fairly aroused state at most times. He also has dreams depicting sex, and due to the intensity of these dreams, involuntary ejaculation may happen. This phenomenon is termed nightfall. Though it is primarily a problem with young boys, nightfall can affect men of any age. However, this condition is an embarrassing one and cannot be discussed with the friend circle or the family. Moreover, modern distractions like the internet and rampant pornography project sex in a perverse way.
