    hi, guy's-
    We all wake up with them, a raging hard-on that has us eager to get to the bathroom for relief. They call them morning wood or piss hard-on's-
    my question is this-
    What is the connection between a hard dick and having to take a pee? Does a full bladder stimutlate blood flow to the cock, causing an erection?
    thanks!

    Hey buddy, You usually develope wood all night long. You just don't know and it and it may not be a full erection. It is due to the Alpha state of sleep and we go in and out of it all night long. It is the state where your body is relaxed right before you fall into a deep sleep. Thanks to ALPHA! If your bladder if full, it can put some pressure and stop blood flow from leaving your erect penis. Usually gets worse and more painful the longer you wait. Usually, if you try to masterbate in the morning with a full blatter, your orgasm may take longer and less ejaculate is a sign of pressure that the bladder has on the viens coming from the penis.

    I recently heard that remark "piss hardon" from a 15 year-old. It was never in my teenage lexicon back in the 1980s. I was flabbergasted and deeply suspicious about where the term came from... To me it is BS. I'll explain:

    An erection from a full bladder? Doesn't make much sense. The sex drive and your urge to pee are two different things (not counting those who are turned on by "water sports"). I have had morning wood whether I wanted to pee first thing in the morning or not; and the morning piss does not normally reduce my sex drive either (although, if erect, I need to calm down a tad to pee comfortably). Sometimes after a morning piss I get aroused again right away, 'cause my mind is lost in raunchy thoughts, and then it's time for some play! ;) My personal experience, and interaction with other guys, taught me that separation - I've had no experience to prove any connection (btw: no bf ever observed this "piss hardon" idea with me).

    I suspect the "piss hardon" is an idea/term that may stem from confusion about male anatomy combined with, for some, a feeling of shame about being aroused - a term to excuse the erection invented to deflect the truth for those who cannot handle the fact that we are sexual creatures, and that men get erections. Empty-the-bladder-and-that-evil-erection-will-go-away... Gee, I wonder what cultural mindset of the last century has that kind of thinking? All boys schools? The military culture? Religious right and their education "system"? Hmmm... Well my "evil" erection doesn't always go away, so there... lol

    Bottom line in this case: for me there is no connection of consequence - only coincidence and circumstance - and maybe something psychological.

    rksportwear is correct about us getting erections all night - the coincidence is our bladder filling up too. The term "piss hardon" suggests a causation but really its two different body functions affecting the male reproductive system at the same time. I have never noticed any connection with morning erections and a need to pee - they have always been separate but coincidental things to me and I know my dick really well ;-) (Jerk-off, then pee or pee then jerk-off, or sometimes just pee cause I'm in no mood for sex, or even jerk-off then pee then jerk-off some more. That's why I question the whole idea!)

    Sometimes nature fools us and we assume somethings are connected in ways that aren't exactly true. Mind you, it could be that some men actually have a connection, but I certainly don't and nor have the men I slept with. Which is why I believe the term is just a cultural fallacy.

    A normal functioning male will have an ercetion come and go many times during the course of one night
    if you wake up during one of these episodes...thats morningwood
    the question of a full bladder is that it might press upon the prostate which can lead to a sexual excitatory response :)

    Morning wood is the best kind of wood. Even better when you get to it before its owner.

    The bladder gets full and pushes against the prostate. Thats along with the normal erections of the Alpha stage of sleep.

    Thought maybe I'd see what I could find in the way of a clinical explanation... I found the following...

    Morning erections are a normal part of male physiology. In fact, when doctors are trying to determine whether or not a man's erectile dysfunction is physiological or psychological, they will often apply a nocturnal tumescence monitor, which monitors the presence and duration of erections during the night. Several things can cause morning erections. One, as the bladder fills during the night, it tends to trigger a spinal reflex that can cause erection. Also, the congestion caused by the full bladder can decrease the outflow of blood from the penis. There are aspects of normal sleep cycling that tend to induce erection as well. (From "Man's Body: An Owner's Manual" by Wordsworth Body Series)

    Ahhh yes, the famous piss-hard-on. When I was younger I would force myself to orgasm before I would empty my bladder. rksportswear... there is a thin line between pleasure and pain. icon_wink.gificon_cool.gif

    I've also read that our testosterone levels peak around 5am-7am in the morning. Could that be a cause too?

    Yeah. Bio teacher said that was the time your testosterone levels are the highest, i.e. fertilization time! icon_razz.gif

    Also did you know that the reason why balls shrink when it's cold and hang loose when it's hot is for the protection of our sperm cells? Heh. They have to be kept at a right temperature or they die. Hence why when it's too cold, they're drawn into the body, when the body's too hot, they draw away.

    It's just vasocongestion taking place overnight.
    Somehow this reminded of an episode in Beavis & Butthead about the 'morning woody fairy'! hahahahah!

    This is a scene from the British teen drama "Skins" (sans "mutt"), best example!

    I don't know what causes it but I wish it would stop. Nothing worse then wanting to pee, but having to wait for your erection to go down. At least now it is more in proportion to the rest of my body. When I was a kid it looked weird (I was a small kid). icon_biggrin.gif

    Maybe not for you but there are guys like me who only get morning wood when we have to piss really bad. In fact anytime in which i have to hold it for an extensive period of time I will get a hard on. Its not from sexual arousal either but more like my body's way of preventing leaks.

    Thanks, NativeDude, for the info. I've used the term "piss hard-on," and I'm relieved to know that I wasn't coming from some deep-seated SHAME. icon_lol.gif

    Years ago I was at a horse ranch. There were many people hanging around while the horses were in the closed gated area. I noticed that one horse kept bucking its hind legs lightly. I was curious was he was doing this. Then I noticed that his penis was becoming erect. It was HUGE. People started giggling at that monstrous site. Especially females. Now I know why they refer to very hung men as horse hung. Anyway, he kept kicking his hind legs for a bit and then let out a very powerful piss and the erection went away.

    So even animals get piss hard-ons too. I know this story may sound odd. I wouldn't have believed it had I not seen it with my own eyes.
