A male reader, fulup8 United States +, writes (24 November 2008):

You have erections throughout the night about every hour and a half. This is the time of REM or dream sleep. As your sleep lightens toward morning you may become aware of the last erection of the night. Coincidently, you probably haven't emptied your bladder for 7 or 8 hours. YOu experience a hard on or woody as a need to have sex or to masturbate. But your bladder needs emptying. Normally when you have an erection, you can't pee at the same time. So many men shower, get the erection to soften, and then pee.

Through the day, when you are an adolescent or into your early 20's hormones and external stimulation will give you an erection. Sometime, adolescents especially, find themselves not able to pee at the urinal or toilet because of this erection. Or when you have a very full bladder pressing on the prostate gland, you may get an erection That means discomfort either way. Everntually the erection goes away and you will be able to pee. If it doesn't you need to have medical help in order to empty your bursting full bladder.

As far as im aware this shouldnt happen unless its while your asleep. Theres theories out there to why people get morning glory's one of which is the penis gets errect so that it prevents you opening your bladder but its only a theory
