There are some things in our control. And there are some things out of our control. With men, one of those out-of-control things usually makes an appearance in the morning, right at the day's beginning.
It's not like no one knows why it happens- science has actually spent time in figuring out why it happens. But all that is way too technical! What's important is to know, there's this phenomenon that does exist, so that, when the time comes, you don't wake up with an uncalled surprise.
Men tend to have erections unconsciously in the morning, something that is often known as 'morning wood'.
Many often believe that dreams of sexual fantasies cause it. But the reason could be deeper than just that.
And there's nothing a man can do about it. Get used to it!
And they think it could have to do with testosterone levels, which are at there highest during the mornings.
Yup! Just pee, and you'll see that things go back to normal.
The phenomenon becomes less frequent when men reach their 60s.
There's probably nothing that can be done about it, so may as well just learn to deal with it.
Yup! That's exactly what you think it is.
