The answer is there is a very weak (fabricated) narration that creates a relation between fasting these days and 'Adam and Hawaa'. Imam as-Suyuti referred to it in his tafsir a-Durr al-Manthur الدر المنثور -see here- while commenting (2:37) saying: In the following I'm translating text from Arabic language, as this translation is of my own take it ...

Note that Ibn Saad's Tabaqat is not really something known to have very authentic hadith. It is more of a history book, and the standards for authentication in history are very low. I couldn't really find this narration when I tried to look for it, but I think the explanation is quite simple. It refers to a nafl fast while the hadith in Bukhari refers to the ...

If you intentionally ejaculate, yes it will break your fast. I don’t understand why you’d want to do such a thing since you won’t even end up feeling any pleasure? And I’m not too sure if it’s possible to intentionally make yourself have a wet dream.

There is no sin on him and his fast is still valid, because Allaah says at the end of Soorat al-Baqarah (interpretation of the meaning): “Our Lord! Punish us not if we forget or fall into error” [al-Baqarah 2:286] and it was narrated ...
