unhappy erections

this may sound like a odd problem, and I doubt anyone will understand, but I thought it was worth asking anyway. Somehow,being naked has an arousing effect on me. Even if it's non-sexual, I get aroused. Thus I have to avoid communal changing rooms/showers like the plague! Even when I am alone, just looking at my self naked makes me erect. I don't understand how I didn't develop normally like all other males. They can get naked infront of eachother and stay flaccid. Are there any ways of blocking erections, either mentally (maybe hypnotherapy) or medication?

Re: unhappy erections

Sometimes our friend has a mind all of his own. What you're describing is more common than you think and yes, locker rooms are THE worst place to have that happen. Don't be too hard (no pun intended!) on yourself, erections don't always have anything to do with sex or sexual thoughts....just a sign of being a healthy male. And Focus is SO right, age does play a role here. You might try keeping a towel handy, that may help hide things...but you can't avoid this too much. Also, try not to think about it, that may be making things worse. I know this isn't easy and it certainly isn't easy to deal with! Good luck and keep in touch!

Re: unhappy erections

Hey man, I used to be the same way when I was younger. I used to always sweat getting wood in the locker room in jr high, and high school. when i went to he doc for a physical, I would always get hard when he checked my equipment. I was actually beginning to wonder if there was something wrong with me.

The worst time for me was once when we had to do square dancing in gym class when I was in jr high, my partner was this really hot cheerleader, and of course I got a huge hardon.

Believe me you can't hide much in a pair of Umbros, so some of my friends sitting up in the bleachers saw it and had a field day with me after class about it.

Fortunately the girl either didn't notice, or liked what she saw, because she went to the prom with me three years later.

Anyway it is probabably just raging hormones causing it. Don't worry too much it will go away once you are a little older.

Re: unhappy erections

I have been a naturist (nudist) for a while. So I wouldn't get erections all the time, I learned to go naked around the house. Therefore, I learned what it felt like. By being nude as much as possible, i didn't get erections at nude events.
Practice safe sex.

Re: unhappy erections

hey - you are a guy - it happens - you would need to be worried if IT did not happen -

I am 48 - I still get aroused changing in a public locker room - I am proud - I flaunt it - look what I got! I am 48 - will yours still do this?

My dr is my golf buddy - I get a hard on in his office every time I go there!

My wife and I are very active sexually - we have done it in my office - her office - in the parking lot - in a traffic jam - just sitting at my desk sometimes bring back memories and there it goes! That's nature!

Square dancing - PE stuff - I had to talk to my high school aged son about why guys wear jocks and white underwear - it ain't for support - it is to hold up woody! He got wise fast - his mom wonders why he has suddenly changed from wearing boxers -

I wear thongs a lot and enjoy them! You should see the looks I get in the locker room when I drop my shorts and have on a thong and a hard on! many times I work out - shower and dress for an evening of sexual activity before I leave the locker room which includes a sheer tear away thong, sheer jock strap or g string -
I have a great sex life - those watching are not getting it like me! Be proud! you are a male! it happens!

Re: unhappy erections

RON Z you are great ! your posts are so damn funny !

ps: i also have this problem.when i watch porns
with my friends i get a hard one already before
i pushed the "play button" on the vcr !
after a porno i cannot stand up, i have to remain
sitting until it got limp again.
and i also get erections when i go to a doc.
once i went to an urologist and he squeezed my balls
when i suddenly felt my friend getting stiff.
damn, i already thought i was gay. but i am not
gay. hey, i already get an erection when i watch
animals having sex on the discovery channel !
this is normal, at least i hope so.
ps:getting a stiff one at the doc is so awkward !

even after *******, i don't loose my erection.
i could go on with it, but most times it starts
to hurt cause the skin is sore.

Re: unhappy erections

Hey Joe,
thanks for sharing, you sound so similar to me it's uncanny.
Anyway, I have found that with age , they seem to get less frequent, or less important even. Like when I was 15 I would take a bath and be hard until I got dressed again. But now, I can take a bath and not even get a semi. I have to be in the right frame of mind to be able to do this though, and it's not easy. To do this it's like trying to concentrate on something so much, everything else around me disappears. Getting into that frame of mine takes a lot of effort. After weeks of training,I went to the pool last week to try it out, but failed. 30 seconds after taking my speedos off in the showers, Pop! instant boner! Practice makes perfect eh.
I too have to see a Urologist soon, how do they react if you get hard infront of them? I guess they see it all the time, but it doesn't make it any less embarrassing for the guy getting examined

Re: unhappy erections

It's normal man all guys have that so just tell your buds in the shower the hot water makes you horny. It still does me the same way and i'm not 15 anymore.

Re: unhappy erections

Hey Joe I had to laugh at your post about getting hard while watching porn with your friends. Why are you so ashamed of it? Getting hard while watching a porno flick is normal. Your friends are just as hard as you are!

I watch porn with some of my buds too, we usually end up unzipping and relieving the pressure before it is over with. <p>[This message has been edited by college_dude (edited 02-01-2002).]
