Thumbs up guys waking up in the morning with erections

why do guys wake up in the morning with an erection?

Re: guys waking up in the morning with erections

It is the bodies way of keeping the blood flow and the spongy tissue in the penis functioning properly. This is necessary so that there is not a lessening of proper function. Actually, it happens a few times throughout the night. It happens during REM sleep, when the guy dreams. The subject of the dream is of no importance. It could be sexual or it could be scary, at least according to the articles that I have read.

Re: guys waking up in the morning with erections

whytry has given an excellent explanation. I just wanted to add that if men lose these AM erections, it's usually a tell tale sign of some problem....Usually low T, otherwise known as testosterone. Morning erections are typically the indicator as to whether or not things are "functioning."

I agree with all of the above but there is just 1 more, men will also have a morning erection if they have a need to urinate.

Actually, the need to urinate has nothing to do with morning erections - after all, you don't usually get an erection while awake when you need to urinate.

The reason people think that morning erections have to do with needing to pee is because generally, when you first wake up, you're going to need to go.
