Science of Erections

Erections

An erection is when a body part becomes longer or harder. The only parts of the body that can do this are the male penis and the female clitoris and nipples. Most of the time when talking about erections people are referring to penile erection and that is what this article will be about.

An erection occurs when a man becomes sexually aroused. This can be accomplished many ways. Physical touching and stroking of the penis is usually affective but sometimes it must be accompanied by visual and mental stimuli. These stimuli might include seeing a naked body or having a sexual thought.

An erection can disappear when the man is no longer aroused, has ejaculated or in extreme conditions (pain, cold, etc.)

Biology

When aroused your penis releases nitric oxide. This in turn lets blood flow into the penis, causing it to become erect. This blood travels to a tissue called corpus spongiosum and corpora cavernosa. When filled with blood the penis is fully erect and ready for sexual intercourse.

Though some slang terms may say otherwise there is no bone located within the penis. It is still possible to ‘break’ the penis though. This happens when a sudden pressure is put on the penis when erect. For example if someone falls over while erect.

Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile Dysfunction is when a man can not get an erection due to a physical issue. These issues include problems with brain activity or nerves, blood flow issues, surgery and more. Most of the time this is not caused by the man himself and is beyond his control (for example if he has diabetes.)

There are many treatments for this which include prescription medications but these may not work best for you. To get these medications you must first make an embarrassing trip to the doctors office which is followed by an even more embarrassing trip to the pharmacy where you’ll discover that Viagra, Cialis and other ED drugs are incredibly expensive, sometimes costing upwards of $10 a pill.

Not only that, these drugs can only be taken immediately before sex. Which means spontaneous sex becomes almost impossible.

Herbal Remedies

Mojoblast is one of the larger male enhancement products on the market and our research has found that it would be at least somewhat effective. The lack of audio or video testimonials leaves us wanting more evidence before we put 100% of our faith in it.

Progene is another very popular product in the male enhancement arena. The main ingredient found within it has been proven effective as a male enhancer in scientific studies. This is impressive but the company has a low BBB rating and has had numerous complaints filed against it from upset former customers.
