Question: Constant Erections & Spontaneous Ejaculations

 ArcAngel - Fri May 15, 2009 7:28 pm

I'm a 36y/o male & at this age, am happy that I still regularly wake up with "wood". About 2 weeks ago I've been waking up with a hard-on every day, which I take care of with not problems. Not only would I be hard in the mornnings but I found that my dick would get hard durring the day with no help from me or other. I know it's not from lack of sexual activity or ejaculations...I always jerk at night before bed & in the morns, so that's at least 2x a day but I usually blow a load more than twice, solo or with a partner. So this is why I am a bit concerned with what I'm going thru today. I woke up hard again but this time my penis was ragging rock hard & the erections was a bit painful. I thought I'd go soft by jerking it & cum but I couldn't jerk because it hurt my penis more. I laid in bed for a while waiting for it to go soft but nothing. I didn't go to work because I had to stay home with an erection from hell that lasted almost 4hrs. When it finaly went soft it seemed like it was semi but wasn't (I know what my semi dick looks like). It just seemed like it was hanging longer, and up til now my dick has been hanging naturaly soft. Although I'm glad it's no longer rock hard, I'm concerned... I am dripping pre-cum more than usual, I do pre a lot but usualy only when I'm horny or hard, this is not the case today & it's almost constant leaking. Now what really has me weireded-out is the spontaneous ejaculations (I've blown 5 loads today) while hanging soft & without any stimulation at all. I'm at home in boxer briefs, relaxing, watching TV, doing chores, eatting or what have you and all of a sudden I cum. The sperm amount & intensity of the blow isn't as big as usual but still enjoyable; yet I can't help but to be concerned. I have no other issues with my penis, only aching balls that have been hanging low most of the day but at times they go tight & up to my body, this is only for a few mins thou, then they drop. Could this be excess my body needs to release on it's own... I do that everyday myself ????

User avatar Hi,Erection lasting for 4hrs and usually painful is referred as priapism.Yours is more physiological than any medical problem.

User avatar Hello,With reference to priapism a note worth remebering is that the condition is a medical emergency.If erection does not subside after discharge,or remains erected for a long duration it could lead to permanent damage.It has been associated with certain disorders of blood,and neurological illness.Generally treated in emergency by aspirating the blood collected.
