Sex Fact: Morning Wood

Kayla Kayla
What causes “morning wood”? Well, guys wake up with erections because they have been sleeping with erections. The technical term is “noctural penile tumescence”. In a penis's normal, flaccid state, it doesn't get much blood flow. If it did, it would be erect. To keep the penis flaccid, the arteries leading into it are shut down to a trickle. Like most of the body, tissue doesn't do well without a regular flow of blood. The body's solution, though, is to open up the valves at night and let the fresh blood come in which causes noctural erections, and in turn, tends to make some guys wake up with morning wood!

Yes the morning wood is still there - but the scary part is that as I get older the frequency and intensity are less that they use to be.

Almost daily, especially if I wake up a little early and don't roll back over. It is very rare that I do anything about it though. Mrs. Lust does NOT like being awakened for playtime.

My husband gets them frequently and I often wake up to the bed shaking as he masturbates in his sleep. It's the most adorable thing I've ever seen in my life! If I can keep my eyes open long enough, I offer a hand of my own and we make good use of it!

This. And yes the prospect is very scary!

My husband tends to have this, but it seems that just peeling relieves a lot of it. He doesn't generally feel the need to masturbate and I generally don't have time to screw around before work.

Since I get up at 3:00 am I do not get them that much but I do on the weekends when I don't work. I do get them when taking naps during the day though.

I have not been able to do anything about them since the kids were born.

Sorry Gunsmoke. That is normal aging. NOTHING about it is good..except it SLIGHTLY beats the alternative.

Yeah, getting older is quite the adventure, isn't it.

Wasn't sure how to answer this because I know I would have morning wood regularly if I ever had time in the morning to just lay in bed. When it happens I don't usually do anything with it because the wife is not a fan of being woke up and then there's those little people that took over our home.

I voted for my husband, he wakes up with one every single morning. That's a really interesting fact, too. I've actually been curious as to why guys get morning wood but never thought to look it up.

Really? So people actually wake up with a boner? Because I thought it was from that half-awake half asleep zone that it pops up.

I used to experience morning wood daily. But then I decided I didn't want to ever sleep horny again. I respect her not being ready, but I can't wait and I cherish our monogamous relationship. I tend to have a solo orgasm or two daily, three or four times daily when she is ready (about twice a month). With this new regimen I rarely wake up with morning wood.
