Why do guys have boners when they wake up?

    The average male gets between 4 and 6 erections during the night usually during the REM stage of sleep.  If you happen to wake up with an erection it is normal.  This usually fades away as you get older.

    Its because of the position we are sleeping.  It stimulates the genitals and when we wake up...  Tadaammmm ...

    It's to remind us that no matter how bad the day is, we wake up every day as men.  And a day as a man is the best gift the universe could give us.

      .  The morning b0ner doesn't even expect "release.."  (and "release" is a sex "massage therapist's"  euphemism.    Why would you use that word, Patty??

    why do women have breasts? why do women get pregnant?`

    God, nature, evolution -- take your pick.. `

    `

    the Nocturnal Penile Tumescence is a known well documented phenomena (aka. Sleep-Related Erection or simply the Morning Glory).. the exact cause is not known.. some urologists suggest that it happens due to a full bladder - the signals from the full bladder somehow triggers the erection process.. and some psychologists suggest a wet dream (a person is having a dream that is sexual in nature)..

    when i first read about the subject, i was surprised that women have a similar phenomenon called nocturnal clitoral tumescence..https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nocturnal_penile_tum...

      Ray J: Never heard the term “piss proud”? Most guys find their “Morning Glory” dies straight after the first piss of the day.
