    This recent article is actually about an older study on why men get nocturnal erections, aka nocturnal penile tumescence (NPT) in medical circles. Seems it may be an evolutionary adaptation to keep our little fellow working at top efficiency, or as the article states: "...our brains are giving our penises a little nighttime workout, strictly for maintenance, to make sure we stay tuned up."

    (Despite an embedded link in the article, it appears accessing the entire study, rather than merely a summary, requires an account with the site)
