Why Men Get Hard During Sleep: Morning
Wood Gets Demystified
There’s no shortage of slang terms for the biological response known as
“nocturnal manhood tumescence.” There’s everything from morning wood
to pitching a tent to getting a visit from the boner fairy and more. But what
causes men to wake up with an Firm member? Is it only a sensual dream that
causes this undercover stirring or is there something more to it? This
extremely common morning present is actually a good sign. Read on to learn
more about why men get hard during sleep.
The Biology of Nighttime Boners
Let’s start with how waking hard works. When a man experiences
stimulation in his parasympathetic nervous system it causes the release of
neurotransmitters. Next, the arteries in the male organ dilate causing more
flood to flow to the male organ, causing it to swell and get hard resulting in
hardness. So, what causes this stimulation? It could be a touch, smell, or
seeing something attractive.
Now during sleep, there’s an uptick in the activity of the parasympathetic
system naturally. It relaxes the muscles, slows the heart rate, and pushes the
brain into a deeper dream state, known as REM. This can create nocturnal
Many men will have several in an evening, but only see the one they wake
up to. Testosterone is also at its top level in the morning which can also
influence the frequency of morning wood.
The Bladder Connection
There is some suggestion that morning firmness is also a way for the bladder
to wave the red flag to let a man know the tank is full and he needs to drain
the main vein! However, there is also something to the fact that a full
bladder can stimulate nerves in the spine which create hardness.
Is Morning Hardness Good or Bad?
Morning hardness is actually an indicator of good health. They are generally
most prevalent in adolescence (think of all that testosterone surging around
the body) and tend to taper off over time.
In some specialized cases, as with diabetics, lack of morning wood may be a
sign of ED or nerve or blood supply issues. Men who take medications for
ED might see more morning hardness than they had before taking
Dealing with Morning Hardness
There are, of course, lots of ways to deal with morning rigidity. Here are a
few of the most common:
 Urinate. Most men find that their hardness subsides after taking a
nice, leisurely wizz in the bathroom.
 Get Physical. Start the morning off right with a little morning
intimacy. Since testosterone is at its height and the body just finished
several hours of rest and repair, it can be quite vigorous and
 Self-love. Grab some creme and get to stroking. A dose of feel-good
chemicals upon intense point is a wonderful way to start the day.
After cleaning up, head to the kitchen for some Wheaties and there’ll
be no stopping you!
Manhood Health: The Key to Strong Soldiers
Want more morning hardness or just stronger hardness in general? Heart
health is a major boner contributor, so follow all the guidelines for heart
health. Get regular daily exercise, manage stress, have meaningful
relationships with others, eat a healthy diet, avoid smoking, and good to the
doctor for regular checkups.
Also, be sure to keep the male organ clean. Bacteria and infection love a
warm, moist place so it’s important to safeguard health by washing the male
organ daily with warm water and a mild cleanser free of additives and harsh
chemicals. Rinse well and pat dry with a soft towel. To finish off, moisturize
the member with a specially formulated male organ health creme (health
professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically
proven safe and mild for skin). Choose a cream with lots of vitamins like
A, B, C, and D to promote manhood health and a natural moisturizer that
will soften the male organ without unpronounceable ingredients.
