3 erection facts that are hard to believe

14 August 2014, 10:44

Abuja - Just when you think your lover’s mysterious little trouser brother can’t have any more secrets, we give you more head scratchers.

3 kinds of erections?

Yes, you read that right. Apparently your man can get three different kinds of erections. Okay, don't get too excited. They don't come in different flavours, just from different sources.

Some erections come from fantasising, while others come from contact. Those are great. Then you get those pesky nocturnal erections that might not actually go away until your girlfriend’s mom offers you tea the next morning.

His won’t suck if you do

In some dubious study reported on by Women’s Health the researchers found that men reported far larger erections when they received oral sex compared to their usual disappointing equipment they handle themselves.

But that could also just be a clever ploy to receive more oral sex. Well played then, Mr. Researcher.

They are shy

Ever wondered why his little dude sometimes acts like a frightened turtle when the doorbell rings or your flatmate starts singing in the next room?

No, it’s not because she’s belting out Celine Dion while banging on your walls (like you should be doing). It’s because erections are shy and they don’t really like company they didn’t invite into the playroom.

On second thought it might also be the Celine Dion.
