My life partner often gets erections just when we're cuddled up on the couch, or from backrubs and things like that, without thinking about it or even necessarily thinking about sex. Any kind of affectionate physical contact is likely to do it.
On the other hand, one of my recent lovers was the type who just basically didn't get an erection until he decided it was Time To Get An Erection. Kind of unusual, but once he decided it was time to get a hard-on, he'd just kind of get one somehow, apparently through sheer mental effort, no actual hands-on stimulation needed in general.
Just goes to show you that it really does run the gamut and it really does vary from person to person!
sometimes it could take a little or a lot. I know for me if i see a girls cleavage ill get one if im in the right mood, or even if i just look at a semi-attractive girl. but i think it really depends on the mood.

it depends. if its my first time meeting them and they are attractive, a hug may get me a half chub but i wont be busting my pants. but in the bedroom, sometimes it gets a LOT to get me fully up and going..
