There’s nothing like a hard on, unless you are a teenager who get them at the most inappropriate times. They make your wily look bigger, enable sex, and are pretty fun to play with. But did you know that you can also get erections during your sleep?
If you’re a man you’ve probably woken with a bit of an erection. But do you know why? It’s actually the left overs from the nights sleep and is called Nocturnal penile tumescence (NPT). In an average night of sleep a man will have around 90 minutes of erections, which is around 20% of the time sleeping!

Men who suffer from erectile dysfunction, making them practically useless in bed, can use this to help determine the cause of the inability to get it up.

If it is intact then there is a the chance that the problem is caused by a physical disability. An elastic band with electronic sensors can also be used and will provide more information on how the penis is behaving during the night.
