Various types of erection in men

Questions of erection are important for any man. Experts identify three types of original erection: psychogenic, reflex and spontaneous nocturnal. Naturally, in the normal, standard situation when the person is healthy, psychogenic and reflex erections are interrelated, but some studies have found that they can be autonomous, for example, patients with paralysis of the lower extremities.

What is the reflex erection?

A reflex erection is a common, normal reaction to men because of touching the genitals. Certain sensory stimuli on the skin transmit appropriate impulses to the nerve endings of not only the penis, but the bladder and rectum. Then, the signal is transmitted to the spinal cord. It should be noted that the reaction of so-called "intimate" nerves is automatic and does not depend on human consciousness. Erection of this type has a great importance for people with disorders of the spinal cord (mechanical trauma, infections and certain other types of violations), as well as for older men when psychogenic erection no longer plays such a large role as before. In such case you should not regard this all as something shameful and to use some artificial stimulation, especially if other options do not help.

What is the psychological erection?

The second kind of erection is psychological, which is believed the result of the brain work. Responsible nerve centers of the brain in a state of excitement send a signal - a nerve impulse to the spinal cord. It is sent to "intimate" nerves, which provide an erection in men. According to sexologists, there are six types of stimuli that can induce a state of excitation of the nerve centers of the brain. At first glance, some of them may seem irrelevant or not appropriate for someone. However, it should be noted that each of these species is very important and plays a certain value upon the occurrence of psychological erection:

  • Hearing stimuli: they should include, first of all, exciting speech, certain music, as well as shortness of breath of partner.
  • Olfactory stimuli: a pleasant smell of skin, hair, perfume and essential oils.
  • Taste stimuli: the taste of genital secretions or saliva partner.
  • Touch stimuli: these include a variety of touch, erotic massage.
  • Imagination stimuli: everything is simple - fantasies, dreams, memories.
  • Stimuli of view: the experts can’t calculate the general rules for all – everything is individual here.

What is nocturnal erection?

The third type of erection is nocturnal or spontaneous erection. As a rule, it arises in childhood and continues into old age. It occurs without the participation of consciousness. The mechanisms of its occurrence so far not been studied thoroughly, but its presence in humans suggests that the lack of normal erections in other situations may be due to psychological factors.
