All About Male Erections

The man’s erection is often thought to be a simple process but is actually a rather complex combinations of reactions in the body. It usually happens due to sexual arousal but occasionally can happen without, perhaps when the bladder is full, during sleep or sometimes spontaneously at any time of the day.

The erection happens when two tubes in the penis become full of blood which causing it to point upwards, downwards or horizontally outwards. This reaction enables sexual intercourse to happen and once the male has ejaculated the effect tends to wear off. The tubes fill with blood when acetylcholine is released into the arteries which feed the erectile tissue. These react by producing nitric oxide which causes the arteries to dilate and the tubes then fill with blood. When the source of the arousal stops or the man ejaculates, the arteries are constricted which forces the blood to leave and therefore the erection to end. An erection can be caused by physical stimulation but also from stimulation from the other senses such as sight, smell, touch and even the imagination. Some things will prevent erection such as stress and other emotional and environmental factors.

What Causes Erectile Dysfunction?

From Mayo Clinic we learn:

Sometimes a combination of physical and psychological issues causes erectile dysfunction. For instance, a minor physical condition that slows your sexual response might cause anxiety about maintaining an erection. The resulting anxiety can lead to or worsen erectile dysfunction.

Some men do have trouble getting an erection and others find that they have one more often than they would wish for. Both of these conditions can normally be treated and it is a good idea to seek medical advice if you have concerns about either of these. There are cures for less severe conditions and even ones that may seem extremely bad may be able to be fixed.
