Boners in the Morning

As promised to Ieka, Susan, Hui Yin, Janice and David, I would research on this topic and blog about it to clear the air once and for all. HAHA!

The question :
Why do guys have boners in the morning?
This is also termed as "morning wood" or "morning tent".

Before moving on, do you know what's a "boner"?
Boner is a slang term for an erected penis. XP

So back to the original question, before I did my research, I was told that guys get boners in the morning because they want to pee.
Guess what, that's a MYTH!

The boner and the need to pee are coincidental.
If guys really do get boners because they want to pee, we would be seeing erected dicks everywhere everyday!!!!!!!
(So Janice was right about this one. HAHA!)
Oh by the way, having morning wood and wanting to pee is called "Pee Horn".
Morning woods are not necessarily caused by dirty thoughts.

Did you watch "The Proposal" acted by Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds?
(If you didn't, go watch it! It's quite a nice movie!)

Anyway, there was a scene where Ryan's family member wanted to come into their room in the morning.
They were pretending to be a couple getting married. Ryan was actually sleeping on the floor while Sandra was on the bed.
So, Ryan quickly rushed to the bed pretending all lovey dovey with Sandra.

Then probably Sandra felt his "morning wood" and gave Ryan a disgusted look thinking that he was excited from all that close proximity.
Then he answered something about it was morning time.

Anyway, based on Answer.com, there are several reasons for "morning wood".

1. Result of deep relaxation.

This is due experienced in deep sleep called REM (rapid eye movement).
REM is a complicated topic (I've presented it in class once, haha).
All you've gotta know is that there are 5 dream stages, first four are non-REM while the last one is REM.
REM is the stage where most vivid dreams will occur.

2. The male testosterone level is at its highest in the early morning during restful sleep, usually built up during the night and at its highest around 4-6 a.m.

3. Boners are considered as a source of increased blood supply to the penis.
Thus, the male body will have several erections at night, just to keep the penis healthy. HAHA!

So, guys...

Go have boners for a healthier life! XP

ps, A totally different topic, while I was researching for this thing,
I saw "Death erection".
Death erection is a post-mortem erection, observed in corpses of human males who have been executed, particularly by hanging.
No offence to the dead but can you imagine a dead body with a boner??

Okay, I'm gonna end it at that. Haha.

Have a nice day!
