The Biology of A Hard-On

Let's bring this to a head...

Hard-on, chub(by), stiffy… call them what you want, but they all refer to one thing — an erection.

Guys, can you think back to the first time you got a hard-on? I’m sure it’s impossible, because you were probably an infant. No, it’s true. Arousal in males usually happen at an early age, when the nervous systems starts to develop.

Parents, don’t freak out if your little one “accidentally” touches himself. Instead, as he gets older, teach him when it’s appropriate to play with himself, like in the privacy of his own bedroom. This doesn’t mean he’s becoming sexual at a young age, he’s just discovering his ever-changing developments.

By the time he reaches puberty, they will be well aware of his member and how it works. That is when he will start to touch himself for pleasure. Hard-ons are a part of life and there’s nothing you can do about it.

While every man will experience a hard-on at some point in his life, he may not know all of the ins and outs of how and why they happen.
