Can I get erection during my massage?

One of the most frequently asked questions we receive from our customers is if whether or not they are allowed to get an erection during a massage or not and the answer is yes, you can! Although the masseuse may provide you with a full body to body massage before she begins to touch your penis and sensitive areas to give you a lingam massage, we understand the intimate nature of the massage session can be very arousing. For most men it is almost inevitable that they will obtain an erection.

We have decided to tell you a little bit more about your body, what an erection actually is and why you get one to help you feel more at ease about having one during your massage session!

Welcome to The Penis Bible!

Erections and Ejaculation

Anatomy of a penis – The penis is the male sexual organ of the male body. The “shaft” is the longer part of the penis that is attached to the “head” and this is the part of the penis that is inserted into the vagina during sexual intercourse. At the tip of the penis you will find a tiny opening known as the meatus where the seamen and urine come out of. Inside the shaft of the penis you have two cylinder shaped pockets called the corpora cavernosa that have many blood vessels and tissues that run the full length of the penis. The tube that the seamen and urine flow through and comes out. Several veins move blood around the penis, which allows men to get erections.

What is an erection? Although it may look like an erection begins in your penis due to the obvious physical change, it actually begins in your brain. Your senses send chemical messages and signals to the blood vessels in your penis which could be started from something you saw, heard, smelled or felt. Your arteries begin to open up more to allow blood flow to happen while simultaneously the veins begin to close up. Once your penis is filled up with blood, it is then trapped by pressure from the corpora cavernosa which is why the penis expands and becomes larger, holding the erection.

What is ejaculation? Tubes in your penis that are known as the vas deferens squeeze sperm from your testes to your urethra when you are aroused. You also have a body part known as the seminal vesticles that release fluid. The urethra can tell when there is a combination of sperm and fluid mixture. When you are at the height of your arousal, this sends messages to your spinal cord which then sends messages to the muscles surrounding the base of your penis. Once they begin to contract intensely around 0.8 seconds, making the penis shoot out semen.

To help you get to know your penis a little better, here are 5 facts you may not have known…

  • Your penis can break – Although there are no bones in the penis, when it is erect you can break it if it is twisted. If the tubes that are filled with blood are twisted, then they can burst, causing extreme pain and swelling. One third of penile fractures are caused from their partners being on top and landing wrong on the penis casing it too bend, although not many men report these incidents as they are too embarrassed to tell the doctor.
  • Foot size is not linked to penis size – The old taunt of your penis size being the same size as your feet, according to the British Journal of Urology International, is simply a myth. Researchers at universities in the U.K took 104 men including pensioners and young men and found that the average penis size was 13cm (5.1 inches) when flaccid and the average foot size was size 9, with no link between both body parts.
  • Men have various erections during the night – It is said that a very healthy man on average will have around 3-5 erections during a night’s sleep, lasting around 25-35 minutes. It is also very common for most men to wake up with “morning glory.” Studies have not yet found the full cause of men having erections during the night but believe that it might be linked to the phase of sleeping known as Rapid Eye Movement (REM). Doctors believe night time erections to be a sign of health as it indicates that everything is working ok.
  • Your penis is not a muscle – Although many believe that the penis is one huge muscle, this is not true, which is why it is not really possible to move it very much when it is erect.
  • A small penis = big erection – Penises that are on the smaller side increase more than a larger penis when erect. Shorter penises usually increase around 86% more, compared to larger penises only increasing around 47%.
