  • That's a good question! I am 42 and I still don't understand why!! I would imagine dreaming would be the answer because I don't understand what sleeping or peeing has to do with an erection.

  • Sometimes it's caused from pressure on the bladder.

  • Because they need to pee and that makes the penis get hard.

  • Men get erections during the night/morning (morning for Maintenance purposes..  The penis is predominately made up of muscle, the flow of blood to that muscle keeps it healthy. If there is issue with the flow of blood to the penis, it can cause harm to the penis itself.  Morning wood is the male body's way of keeping blood flowing into the penis in the manner in which it needs to in order to keep the muscle tissue of the penis healthy.

    Sounds strange.. I know.. lol..  However, that is why men get erections in their sleep/have morning wood. The body is keeping the tissue of the penis healthy and functioning properly.

  • This question made me laugh. My husband received a text the other day explaining why (it was false of course) the top of the text said men and their bed bugs. Why guys wake up with an erection. The bed bugs were tons of little woman. Sounds dumb, but it made us both laugh.

  • Having to pee does not cause an erection. Simply because a man can not pee freely (lol) while they have an erection. When the penis is erect, there is actually a flap/valve the cuts off the bladder so urine can not flow through in order for ejaculate to be able to flow through from the testes. That's why it is difficult for a man to pee when he has an erection. Having to pee in the morning is normal and caused by urine being stored in the bladder for many hours while someone is sleeping. Ever watched a man try and pee with a hard on.. LOL.. It can actually be quite an amusing sight.. LOL
