Happy to jump in! Unexpected erections — we call them “spontaneous erections” are totally normal and can happen at any time in a man’s life, but are most frequent during puberty. Why do they happen? It’s mostly due to the surging hormones that occur in puberty!
By the way, just as it can be normal to get erections when you’re not aroused, it’s also normal to feel sexual desire and not have an erection! The body is a wonderful & sometimes uncooperative thing! 😉
I was really awful in high school with boyfriends and close friends – I used to think it was a funny challenge to make them get them in awkward situations. I now realise what a jerk move that was…. sorry boys!!!!
I’m still pretty unaware of how that actually works, @Awesone489 – is it just like, no pee at all? Or no control over where it goes? I’ve seen some memes about guys lying down on top of the toilet to pee in the morning… that’s not actually a thing, right? 😀
No problem @kindofsquishy its basically no pee actually comes out when you go to the toilet. You have to wait for the erection to subdue. There must be some valve that turns of the uretha when we get an erection.
Sure @NickiPower @Awesone489 @kindofsquishy! The urethra is a tube inside the penis that directs urine from the bladder as well as semen from the prostate & testes, to outside the body through the tip of the penis. The urethra has a valve that stops or blocks off one or the other, so boys can’t urinate (wee) and ejaculate (release semen) at the same time. 🙂
Hi @Awesone489. Yes that’s right it is possible though sometimes a full bladder might be uncomfortable. It’s important to know everyone has different limits when it comes to sex and what feels pleasurable.
