When still a boy I read that the physical completion of puberty, in terms of sexual maturity, was when the pubes turned curly. So I kept an eye on that issue.
And a marriage manual at the library (pre-Internet, pre VHS and DVDs) said the best time for fucking was first thing in the morning after a nice sleep so that everyone is refreshed and ready. Don't recall whether it made any comment on the familiar hardon that often occurs when a man awakens.
Sometimes called a "piss hardon," it may not actually be a bladder-related phenomenon, but for those with the time and privacy, starting the day with a boner calling attention to itself and reminding you that you are a highly sexual beast, automagically standing at the ready, almost as if the camouflage as a flaccid nonthreat was not a man's actual fallback condition.
Seeing such waking boners in porn is tricky, because they don't necessarily time themselves for the camera's convenience (or yours, for that matter), and any "hidden" or "spy" cam video is as likely to be as faked as those scenes of alleged straits being molested while passed out (if that were a woman being groped, it would be called rape, which is another topic for someone else to talk about if they want).
Whatever. Actual spontaneous morningwood on camera has reportedly been observed in some of the Big Brother seasons here and there (or since I'm in the US of A, episodes taking place there, or there, or there, but oh, my stars and bars, not here in the squaky clean land of the free yadda yadda yadda).
There was, almost a decade ago, a short-lived US reality show about fraternity life in which one of the brothers did show his rod briefly upon awakening, but whoever edited that scene either did not notice or figured it was too short to worry about. Always wished I knew the name of the show so I could hunt for a copy.
But while I'm fairly sure anyone reading this knows a lot about morningwood from personal experience of self and others, it does not seem to be a subject where jocks, soldiers, sailors, frat boys, or men in any other condition of life talk about it. More like something so well known and obvious as not to be interesting or worthy of remark.
Which is fine until at some point you are old enough to discover one unwelcome day that you don't have a wake up hardon and have not had one since… well, can't remember. Think of that. How odd.
It's not like you wank much less or with less drive and enthusiasm than you used to, but the familiar appearance of your did in full readiness mode has somehow sneaked away-- kinda like, maybe, the way it arrived, such a natural thing that you may not have noticed it in the morning more than any other time when you got a "stiffie," perhaps without even having that little boy's name for the experience.
And then when it became regular and routine, it was just one more unsorted effect of puberty.
You might have talked with same-age friends about jacking off or been curious to discuss whether they had ever actually had a wet cum. But discussing how long you've been having your little soldier at attention for the dawn patrol seems less likely. And then when the good and faithful soldier begins sleeping in, it's hardly something to broadcast.
So here I am asking-- what is your experience and age when first noting you got erect at the start of each day? And if you have stopped having that daily self-esteem boost and it happens less often or basically not at all, did you notice the change? How old were you, and how did you feel once you realized what was (not) happening? How do you feel about it now?
You know, this is a very interesting topic. I never notice (or think about it) unless I'm sharing a bed with someone I'm not involved with sexually. It's only during those times I'm conscience and don't want them to see my "morning glory."
I don't think I have them every morning, but then again, I don't pay attention.
I dotn have them every morning either. But i dont pay attention to that as much anyway since im not a morning person.
