Wet Dream is the second track on Vanity 6’s first and only album Vanity 6. The track was written, produced and largely performed by Prince (as was the rest of the album). Five months after the album’s release, it was included as a b-side on the UK 12" version of He’s So Dull, the album’s third single.

While specific recording dates are unknown, basic tracking took place in Summer 1981 at Prince’s Kiowa Trail Home Studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota (Likely around the same time as Drive Me Wild, I Need A Man, Jealous Girl, Pizza and Make-Up). The tracks were intended for an album by The Hookers, which was abandoned in Fall 1981, and which later evolved into Vanity 6. Vocal overdubs by Vanity and Brenda Bennett were added in Spring, 1982, when the band had evolved into Vanity 6.

A later track, planned for a projected second album by Vanity 6, was titled Wet Dream Cousin due to its similar musical feel to this track; the two are otherwise unrelated, however; see Wet Dream Cousin for details of that track.
