1. No, the correct term is not 'morning wood,' it is actually scientifically referred to as nocturnal penile tumescence (NPT).
2. The phenomenon occurs during REM sleep, or the period during your snooze where you’re most likely to dream.
3. It is more likely to happen after a good night sleep so it does not always have to be because you had a naughty dream.
4. Women get it too. Women get clitoral erections during sleep. It has been suggested that this may be the body’s way of providing adequate oxygen flow throughout the body, including the genitals.
5. It shows you are healthy. Not only are sleeping/morning boners totally normal, they may actually mean you’re in good shape. If you don’t get erections during sleep, it may indicate something is wrong with you. Possible reasons for a lack of a midnight woody may be due to se xual impotence or psychological issues.
6. It does not mean you are aroused. One study found that most of the men surveyed weren’t aroused, even though their penis was imploring them otherwise.
7. It craves release. Since we’ve already established that morning wood is rarely the result of scandalous thoughts, here’s something that may be responsible: a full bladder. When the urethra gets filled, it can cause the penis to engorge, causing a very different kind of boner.
