If I have an erection in a dream, do I actually have one?

At the risk of sounding immature I’ll ask this puzzling question. I had a dream last night during which there were long (ha!) periods of me having an erection. I won’t explain the context, but I was conscious of the erection in my dream and could even feel the pressure of it against my jeans (I have very vivid dreams.) Was I indeed sporting a boner as I slept? Or was this strictly my imagination?

Males typically have erections whenever they are in REM (dreaming) sleep, so you have an erection when you are dreaming even when you are not dreaming about having an erection.

Females also have clitoral erections during REM sleep…

I can’t really speak for you, but every time I’ve woken from from a dream in which I was erect, I actually was.

I don’t know. Would you like me to stay the night and check it out? :eek: :smiley:

Send me your picture first.

If your erection dreams are recurring, you can always try the Nocturnal penile tumescence (NPT) stamp test, detailed on this page.

On that “nocturnal penile tumescence” test, can you have your girl friend lick the stamps?

I’d do it but they don’t make stamps big enough.
