It's totally normal. And the interesting news is that as you get older, the frequency will likely decrease but the reasons will not change - attractive person, holding hands, it's a Tuesday - whatever.

My 40 year old partner claims that he can still pop an errection and look down at it and wonder what the heck it's thinking, because he's not thinking about sex at all.

It's a very, very standard male phase. All your male teachers went through it, your dad went through it, your friends are very likely going through it - it's just part of the maturing thing. Try not to worry about it, knowing how common it is. It will calm down over time!

Hope this helps,

I am no expert on this (seeing that i am a girl) but i know that becoming aroused is extremely normal, especially when you are close to someone you are attracted to.

When you say you tend to ejaculate, do you mean you do when you just get aroused? If so, that I couldnt help you with. Any help from a guy here please?

If this hasnt caused any serious social problems then i probably wouldnt worry too much about it. The majority of people know by the time they are 17 that guys get errections. When (and if) i notice a guy who is aroused i tend to ignore it because i know its normal and can sometimes happen for no reason at all.

justaguy, that's perfectly normal. It's almost undoubtably not ejaculate but pre-ejaculate, or "pre-cum" - something that usually happens to guys upon arousal. It's a fluid released by your glands which can buffer the acidity of any urine in your urethra, bringing the pH to a comfy level for sperm. Pre-cum usually does bring down a few sperm with it, and can cause pregnancy.

That is completely normal. I'm not a guy, but I was talking to my fiance and he said that has happened to him too. He says he'll be getting food or something and all of a sudden get a full erection. It's normal. But see, my fiance is 22 also, and he's a virgin. So, if you're a virgin then maybe that could be why you become so easily erect. And yeah, the cum that is extracted is pre-cum, which guys usually get when they are erect.

Just as a little sidenote ... it's not only (or even especially) virgins that are easily aroused. Especially in their teen years.

perhaps you and my brother should start an everquest support group. it brought him and all his friends down.... you guys are all junkies.

anyway, my guy friend called me a couple hours ago with this same problem. he was getting all freaked out cuz every time he talks to his girlfriend he gets aroused. I told him "Duh, you like your girlfriend, she turns you on whether your brain is thinking about it or not"

Getting errections when they arent exactly wanted must really suck. I mean, its not really anything to worry about because most people dont notice (unless they have a habit of looking at peoples crotches) but i guess its like getting errect nipples. Totally embarrasing if someone points it out. But then you gotta tell yourself "hey, nipples get errect" Just substitute penis for nipples are there ya go!
