Morning woody after a dream

I don’t remember my dreams very often, but it seems that more than half the time, when I do dream, I wake up with a woody. It doesn’t matter that the subject matter of my dream is entirely non-sexual. Most of my dreams are not. I’ve only had a wet dream once in my life. So why the woody?

To answer the question accurately, we will need more details.

Are you male or female?

Arnold, just trying to get first post in, or do you really need to ask ?

Maybe you just saw Toy Story 2?

You know what they say, if you can’t dazzle them with brilliance…

“I’ve only had a wet dream once in my life.”

Jolt, are you angry? Are you disappointed? I suspect maybe you’ve had a LOT more than one, but the others were discounted as “accidents,” i.e. you peed the bed. “Nocturnal emissions,” (the psychobabble term for staining the sheets) are more than normal. They’re de rigeur for any boy growing up.

I remember a time a couple years ago, waking up in a motel room in Corbin, KY, with my SO astraddle me and riding my version of the “woody” you talk about for all she was worth. Even as I type this, I’m smiling! :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: She happened to wake earlier than I did, found that beauty, and climbed on! Jeez, sometimes life is VERY good!

I’m with you in one respect though. I wonder why? Where does this magnificent ultra-hard-on come from? Is there a pill we can take or an incantation we can recite to make it happen at will?

I don’t know why fortune smiles on some and lets the rest go free…


Erections are quite common during the REM section of sleep. At least that’s what I read somewhere.

Frankly I don’t really care why you guys get those morning woodies. Just keep it up, k?!!

I’ve read before that morning wood, huh-huh-huh huh-huh-huh, happens because your body is 100% relaxed. Ergo, the muscles that control the flow of blood entering the penis are relaxed, it fills up with blood, and POOF! You got a boner!

Anyone know why it happens in the morning when you really need to pee? What’s the connection there?

i have heard that one of your body’s routines during sleep is just that.

i have also heard that you average about 8 per night.

It’s actually unrelated to the bladder. Columbia University Health Center’s “Ask Alice” has the answer here.

It won’t go down until you piss…

You can’t piss until it goes down…

Thank Christ for sinks!

I don’t know if there’s a connection, but it sure is handy to be able to hit the john (or any other target within sight) without getting out of bed! There’s something about finding yourself in command of a high-powered rifle, when you thought all you had was a .32 snubby…

We already covered this one extensively. Search the archives. There is nothing new to report after what is already written here.

Morning woody is good… sounds kind of like a greeting. [singsong voice]Morning Woody! Lookin’ good today![/singsong voice] Maybe even give it a high five :slight_smile:
Myself, I’ve always referred to it as a pee-on.

Whatever the cause, it is a good reason to get up in the mornings.

Once in a while you can get shown the light
in the strangest of places
if you look at it right…

Then I guess, at age 28, I still haven’t grown up. I’ve never had one, nor did I ever think I “wet the bed” during my adolescence. While nocturnal emissions are normal and common, they’re by no means guaranteed. I’ve always wondered what it would be like though – so far all my ejaculations have been while I was conscious (though I rode one partner 'til I was unconscious a couple of times :wink: )

For a somewhat archaic discussion of the topic:

I have a gentle cock, croweth me day.
He doth me risen early my matins for to say.

I have a gentle cock, comen he is of gret,
His comb is of red coral, his tail is of jet.

I have a gentle cock, comen he is of kinde,
His comb is of red coral, his tail is of inde.

His legges ben of asor, so gentle and so smale,
His spores arn of silver white into the wortewale.

His eyen are of crystal loken all in aumber,
And every night he percheth him in mine lady’s chaumber.

Here’s the deal with morning wood…

While you sleep, you have dreams even if you don’t remember them. Often times, these dreams affect the penis, because they can certainly be exciting dreams.

Combine that with you in bed. Your cock rubs against your sheets, your underwear (whatever you sleep in) as you move around.

As a result, morning wood is like a big case of blue balls, sometimes having been erect for hours before you wake up.

This is why it gets so big (it is bigger in the morning) but is also so hard to manage to climax as well.

Yer pal,

I gotta go with johnnyharvard on this one. Relaxation of some groinal region is the principle behind Viagra as well.
