Is it normal for your sleep & morning erections to be small and "tightly compact" compared to the erections you get when you're wide awake and aroused? I swear, my morning one is 1-2 inches smaller than usual. Does anyone else experience this and is this normal?

If you're sleeping with your spouse it should be fairly easy to get it stretched back out.

OK. Then a few questions:

Are you closer to 15 or 80 years of age?
Are you on something like Viagra?
Do you make your living doing porn type things?

And remember, the morning size is because you need to go to the bathroom, NOT because you have a sex act on the way. Dispite what people say, it's not just in your mind, you also need another body to help stimulate.

If one didn't get that some mornings/every morning one would probly find one has wet the bed upon awakening. Something must take over when one is asleep to prevent one from messing the bed in one way or another. The body has it's own internal control mechanism when one is in the voluntary sleep state. That automatic monitored and controlled event while asleep is far different from the controlled event when one is awake. Two different mechanisms at work.

To my way of thinking, a stiffy is a stiffy, a chubby is a chubby, a woody is a woody, and a hardon is a hardon.

Doctors and medical researchers have studied what is called Nocturnal Penile Tumescence as it relates to impotence, erectile dysfunction, obstructive sleep apnea, and a host of other male medical issues.

No, it does not always mean you need to urinate.

Firstly, I don't recall mentioning that it *always* means a need to visit the oblution block, secondly, how does it work when the bladder fills up during sleep mode and one fails to wake up to eliminate waist water? Something prevents bed wetting, or worse, so what would that something be? It must be muscles I reckon, and what muscles would be involved? Probly a combination, but what would the end result be if/when one manages to go an extended amount of time in sleep mode without emptying the bladder? What muscle can one feel activating when one holds on as long as one can while awake?

It's not the *only* reason, it's just one possible reason of many. A full bladder in sleep mode will prompt an appropriate trigger mechanism for the prevention of emptying that bladder. There must be some neurological function while asleep, else I'd be thinking we'd all be wetting and/or crapping the bed.

Morning wood and the need to whizz are not releated. The morning erections are usually due to be being relaxed from resting not arousal. That might explain the difference. The difference arises with amount of blood and other factors. It is thought to be tied in to REM sleep and not a bladder function.

Think about it this way. As you go through the day and that cup of coffee equals a gallon of pee, do you get wood? I'd hope not. You happy to see me or do you need to tinkle?
