Perhaps we should wear a gartel all day.
If gartel prevents bad thoughts during davening.
Leaving it on all day will  prevent bad thoughts all day.

I tried getting my wife to wear one at night.
I'm all about that (substantial) bass, no trouble ....

You are forbidden to ask your wife to put on a gartel.
Becouse it says in her kesubah that you must satisfy her desire for intimate relations.

Thank you GYE for my daily dose of humour. I nominate this thread as the funniest so far. 
Also, I suspect Trouble is either an apprentice or a doppelganger of cordnoy.

or maybe we will all become doppelgangers... Just a matter of time.

It's interesting, today on Yom Kipur is the 40th day of my last ejaculation (don't mean to be graphic, but.. ). Before, somewhere between a month and two months in, is the mark where I would have involuntary nightly emissions, which I felt  was really not a good thing. It would happen always with sexual dreams.

Does anybody have any tips on how to prevent them? Personal tips or what the Torah says?

So far I've made a point, when I remember, when I get into bed to think that I don't want to have it happen, and if dreams of that nature come over me, that I will force myself to either wake up or brush them off. So far it has worked. Maybe others will have other ideas?

Thank you.b

I think the קיצור שולחן ערוך talks all about this by יום כיפור. For what it's worth, one year I followed all the suggestions he brought down & I had a wet dream on YK night....
My road to 90 days, all with God's help.             What brought me here.90 days with Areivim

Made it 259 days from 01/28/17-10/15/17 without mz"l. At day 90, I started to go for all aspects of שמירת עניים\הברית. At day 168 I fell with שמירת עניים & restarted the count. On approximately November 4 2017, with the support of a fellow GYE brother (daily text messages/phone calls), I restarted. This round I'm working on שמירת הברית as well as שמירת עניים.
