What does an erection feel like?

I'm just curious, what does it feel like when a guy gets an erection?

  • It feels pretty cool. It gets fatter and longer and sticks straight out or straight up to the navel. The underside gets sensitive and feels good when touched. It can be hard as a rock if really excited. And there is a strong desire to put it in the vagina. It also feels good mentally.

  • It feels like having something hard and big that wasn't there just before, making briefs feel very tight; it draws attention "Hey, I'm here!" and it gets the mind going.(if it wasn't already going)

    maybe like 5 inch erect nipples for a girl?

    No, erections materialize not on command most of the time, can be really embarrassing while dancing close or very embarrassing when showering with boys (or embarrassing when they should materialize and they don't)

  • It feels like an extra body part coming to life that you forgot you had that you're very conscious of. He has it's own feeling and you know it'll feel better if you do something with it. ;-) .

  • It's impossible to really explain to someone who doesn't have the equipment to relate. lol... sorry but I just don't think it's possible for a girl to really understand what an erection would feel like.

    About all I can say is that an erection (at least for younger guys) doesn't necessarily mean that we're horny. It does in a lot of cases, but a lot of times it just happens because of excess bloodflow to the area, or if a guy really has to pee sometimes it'll happen just as a reflex the body uses to stop yourself (that's one of the reasons guys tend to wake up with morning wood). The point here is that if you're wondering if it feels the same as when a girl gets horny? Maybe, but probably not in most cases since an erection doesn't always mean a guy is horny.

    • Really? I knew it happened because of excess blood flow, but not because of having to pee. Interesting.

    • these comments were a year ago... but I know from experience when I need to pee and I put it off, I'm on my own and I'm sitting down or lying down I feel kinda horny around the clitoris area... makes me forgeti need to pee

    • Maniraptoran - I know what a clitoris is, but as you said it's much smaller, I'm fairly certain it doesn't triple in size, or make an awkward bulge in your pants. And imagination can only build on what you've already experienced. Just as I don't know what it's like and probably never will to breast feed a child, it's not really easy to relate a feeling to someone who doesn't have the equipment to compare. I have nipples, yes, but I'm sure it's not the same.

  • It gets more sensitive and generally feels good. You become more aware of its presence also because of the increased sensitivity.

  • An erection is primarily a signal that you're horny. How does your body feel when you're horny? It's the same thing.

    • Does it feel like you get almost an electricle feeling when it first happens.. because that's what I feel when I first get horny like a surge of energy travels from my belly button down. (aside from that it's unexplainable to me)

    • Yeah me too, Like when I see a girl sitting legs apart on a boy and they're kissing, it only does it for a second. But I LOVE that feeling =D

  • think of it as a rush of blood to your arms after youve woken them up from being asleep cause you slept on it wrong

    thats what it feels like, its just a biological rush of blood to the penis, because its sexually aroused, it gives you that warm, tingly feeling that you get when you fall in love

  • Here, feel it.

  • Tight, aches, throbs with a pulse, and a strong desire to cum

  • it feels like an extra limb lol and you don't really notice it while its not erect though

  • It feels exciting, but causes a desperate need for it to be caressed or rubbed, but most of all a frantic desire for it to be absorbed into a woman's soft warm wet body.

  • In my opinion, because my first one was at 14. I am 18 now. I was like WTF is going on!! It was all tight and uncomfortable. It was at dinner at my home and I squinched my legs closed on it. I guess I had a weird face because my mom asked what was wrong LOL. I told her nothing!!! It was night time, my older brother who was 16 at the time was all like "it happened didn't it?" and was all like "What?" And he explained that it was normal for guys, and that I was fine. He then proceeded to strip down out of his clothes and started to grope his ummm... Pecker. I tell you what, I was horrified!!! And then he's all like, calm down take of your clothes, I was all like no thanks!!! He then began to pull down my clothes and got to my underpants, before I could say anything he was all like it's fine dude. We are brothers, chill out!! So I was like ok, its all good. He took off my underpants and groped my pecker, and started to do this up and down motion. I tell you what, it got really stiff down there!! My brother stopped and said "You can do that on your own." Put his clothes on and went to bed. I wanted to go to bed, but I guess he got me way excited, I began to do the thing he taught me. And then a few minutes later, it was like my whole body got stiff and this feeling I don't know how to describe came and then out came a clear substance. It was not semen though!! I still do what my brother taught me though!!

  • An erection feels like your arm when you flex it to make a muscle. Tight and full.

    Or it feels like your body during a GREAT stretch. Your penis just wants to rip out of your pants then stretch beyond it's limits.

    Pretty much any feeling of stretching, fullness, and yearning.

    I'd imagine the closes thing for a woman would be her vagina full of cock or a toy.

  • Have you not got any male friends or families erection you can feel to see or even a boyfriends?

  • men and women actually have more or less the same parts, but our genes determine if we emit male or female hormones in utero. For example, men and women both have sensitive oval shaped sacks, but in men the develop into testes and drop and in women they become ovaries.

    Although it isn't a penis, a woman's clitoris is probably the best way to for a woman to understand what an erection feels like.
    When you're in bed or just feeling hot have you ever really wanted your clitoris played with?

    An erection is going to be similar to that feeling, but being larger and also connected to the urethra. The head of the penis is the most sensitive part, probably feeling most like a woman's clitoris. It can feel amazing if it's licked, I especially like that from side to side where the head meets the shaft.

    The shaft is pretty special. It can embarrass a man, like some mentioned earlier, but it can also be a source of great pleasure, and perhaps ego or shame depending on its size. As far as a woman imagining it, maybe imagine the clitoris is sitting at the top of a tense and tight, good feeling balloon that is about to make you scream and explode with ecstasy. Wow. I got carried away there.

    Full disclosure: I've got wood right now. Jk, anyways...

    A lot of the penis is also buried underneath the body's surface (so even if you're small, it's bigger than you think). Those little swimmers have to travel a relatively long way, it's not a direct ball to tip transfer. The base of the penis goes underneath the pelvis and then wraps around underneath the balls and towards the anus (don't get carried away, not TO the anus, TOWARDS it). So in addition to all that's going on up on the surface, there's quite a bit of anatomy doing its thing down there. You can access this part of the dick by touching underneath the balls or down just a little further in the taint. This area to me feels like an area where pressure builds up and it's inflating the pleasure balloon up top, but it's also feels great. For me, when it touched it makes the shaft feel even more tense. This is where men and women are way different. You guys have a hole inside of you and we have a pleasure pole that been set inside of us (imagine base of tether ball pole)

    A woman (or man, whatever) could reach back and place her hand here when in a variety of positions and it always feels good. Cup the balls and apply pressure on the base of the penis with your fingers. Dont over reach! (Unless that's your/his thing)

  • Sometimes it gets hard way too much or at the wrong time, I want to drop a hammer on it or cut it off.

  • If it gets trapped in your pants the wrong way, it can hurt until you adjust it...tight pants particularly are prone to this.

    • But say it doesn't get trapped in your pants...say you're not weearing pants, lol, how does it feel?

    • You can't make it go away, at least not very well. If you are a large man, you just put up with the public humiliation. I imagine small guys can hide it easier.

      If you are a student with a handful of books, you just hold your books in front of you.

      If you are on a loveseat next to a F friend, you cover it with whatever is available.

    • That explains a lot. haha icecreamlover, have you ever heard of pocket poker? hahaha that's what they do.
