Are an erection and getting turned on two different things to a man? Does one of them come first, or is an erection just the consequence of getting turned on? DonÂ´t laugh, IÂ´m a virgin, so I donÂ´t know…

An erection is physiological; it can happen when you’re just leaning against the counter doing dishes, but if you’re truly turned-on (mentally), an erection always occurs (‘else you got a problem). So, to recap: you can’t be aroused without an erection, but you can have an erection without being aroused. And even then you might as well make use of it.

It’s easily possible to get turned on without having an erection. Once you start to fantasize, once you get some physical stimulation (which could be something like your penis rubbing against your leg), or if you’re actually in a sexual situation, then you get one pretty quickly. It’s also possible to lose your erection through a surprise or lack of stimulation but still be aroused.

Maybe I’m just getting old, but it’s possible to be pretty turned on without getting much of anything besides vague stirrings in that area. If it progresses beyond just a vague feeling of horniness, then there’s usually some sort of reaction, but mine has seen so little use in the last two years it’s like waking an old dog that’s sleeping by the fire – it takes a lot to get him to do more than raise his head, look around, and realize there’s nothing important going on.

Elsa, A man can get an erection from having a full bladder pressing on certain sensitive areas inside. Many guys wake up with an erection for that reason. It goes away after you pee. From puberty until the early 20s (or later), a man will often get an erection just from his penis rubbing against his underwear or trousers while walking, sitting, etc. When the rubbing stops, the erection gradually goes away. But most of the time, when a man has an erection that means he’s aroused. Chaz

They usually go together. In healthy men, getting turned on always causes an erection. An erection usually (but not always) means a man is turned on. It is like smoke and fire. You may have one without the other; but more than likely, where there’s smoke, there’s fire, and vice versa.
