Genital Hard Erections Information, Understanding & Facts
“How Does Man’s Normal Natural Dick Hardness Arousal Work?”
For something that appears so natural, a male sexual penile erection function is a rather complicated process involving the coordination of the psychological, neurological and cardiovascular systems.
The penis becomes erect following a series of sexual events.
First, the penile nerves are stimulated, to produce a sensation known as sexual arousal. No matter what the nature of the sexual stimulus. Whether it is visual, mental or physical the brain coordinates the following series of bodily events:
Nerve impulses transverse the length of the spinal cord on to the penis thru the dorsal nerve. Smooth muscle within the walls of the penile arteries respond by relaxing.
Soft flaccid penile arteries dilate
Subsequently, the soft flaccid penile arteries dilate allowing up to eight times more blood to flow into the corpora cavernosum, (two parallel cylinders that transverse the length of the penis).
Expanding and lengthening the penis
The cavernosum become engorged with blood expanding and lengthening the penis. The expanding tissue then exerts a positive pressure compressing the veins that normally empty the blood from the penis, maintaining the blood in the penile tissue.
When penile ejaculation (climax) occurs or when penile arousal is discontinued the penis returns to its non-erect state.
