Why You Wake Up With Morning Wood?

Five o'clock in the morning, and you are hard. Why?

This phenomenon is so common that it has its own name - nocturnal penile tumescence (abbreviated as NPT). Although it seems to occur in the morning, such erections occur 3-5 times through the night. Erections are more common in young people, while in the elderly appears increasingly rare due to lower levels of testosterone.
The old belief is that morning erections are related to sexy dreams, but luckily scientists do their job, and can no longer we can be accused of dreaming hot coworkers. In addition to this phenomenon happens to men in any age, have proven to occur more in male fetuses. One theory is that erection occurs when the body wants to supply the penis with a new oxygen so as to expel the blood.

Another theory is that the erection is due to the fact that during REM sleep our penis is finally free and rises when he wants. When we are awake, the body blocks the free lift and saves us of unpleasant situations.

Don't worry, your penis does not have a brain, it is part of our genetics. When you care about him so much more through the day, let him enjoy the night.
