I am 21 yrs old. Most of the times I have noticed that during sleep and sometimes after awakening in the morning, my penis gets erected. What is the reason behind? I do not get any sexual dreams.

So why is my penis rigid? Why does our penis gets erected during the morning time when we wake up or during sleep?

theres no cause of concern about that,that is due to our sex hormones that may get secreted through a positive feedback mechanism exited by any fantasization  during the day time.......
dont worry this is quite normal

Hey Shubham,

Empty your bladder before going to sleep.
Urge to pee and suppressing that urge makes penis erection during sleep and your will get hard on when you wake up.
If you continue to get the morning erection for long time, then you will build chance of suffering from Prostate Enlargement and Urethra related problems.
All the best

Getting a morning erection is a positive sign of being healthy...

You should be proud and laud your kidding.

No boy, theres nothing wrong and its just normal thing... and it has nothing to do with sex dreams...

Also, early morning sex is the best for both a man and a women...coz man has his dick hardest and the women gets to (s)experience it in her warm vagina...

Take care... and always use a condom when you pound a babe...

Nothing to worry shubham. It is quiet natural and and termed as 'morning erection', and it is an indicator for sexual health and potency. Filled up 'penile blood vessels' are cause for sexual erection. Morning times bladder will be filled with urine and to have control not to piss in bed the penile blood vessels got filled voluntarily to close urethra. This causes morning erection. Don't worry, and you are sexualy healthy.

Dear Shubham Bhatt,

     Don't worry dude its a natural process and you should no need to worry about this. Generally on an average a human penis got erected 7 times in a single night.

     The reason for morning erection is your urge to piss. Whole night your kidneys work and till morning your bladder get filled with urine. So to make sure that you don't piss in the bed your penial nerves get filled with blood thats why your penis looks erected even if uou don't have no urge of sex. Moreover when yiu have urge to piss you press your prostate gland too and by doing this blood also get filled in those nerve and the resultant is your semierected penis.

   So we can say that it is also sign of good health. Don't worry its okay and happens almost to every man.
