All men wake up in the morning with an erection. It’s a well-known fact, but it’s hard for women to understand. Morning activity in bed is definitely something men crave more than women. But if you think it’s because men constantly want sexual intercourse or dream about it every night, you’re wrong. This phenomenon has actually been researched. Doctors have concluded that it’s not a female partner or a wet dream.
It is a medical condition called NPT (nocturnal penile erection), which is common to all men who have entered puberty and lasts the rest of their lives. Research into why this happens has led to the theory that the penis* actually moves at night when the brain and body are asleep. During an erection, the penis fills with blood and stays in place for an extended period of time, at least until ejaculation or a morning trip to the bathroom. In this study, doctors also concluded that “men have four to five erections during the night, each lasting about 25 minutes.” Here’s an image showing the scientific biological process behind erections. So while men are “ready” in the morning, women’s libido increases later in the day.
So intimacy doesn’t always have to be in the morning or evening… it should be something you both want at the same time without trying to please the other, right? What are your thoughts? We’d really appreciate it if you could share this on Pinterest to spread the word.
