Erections during Night

Discussion in 'Rebooting - Porn Addiction Recovery' started by Deleted Account, Feb 12, 2019.

  1. This is the worst thing ever. I have to wake up almost everyday at like idk 3am, i find out that something is happening with my dick and...ugh. This is just annoying, I hate it when my dick rubs against my pants when I move a bit. And today I had such a night. I didnt touch myself or anything but still, its annoying

    You are waking up ultra early bud. :eek: You need your sleep as a teenager and even with a catch up during the day, you cannot be getting enough. I know that is not what you wanted to discuss, but I couldn't comment without mentioning it.

    As for your problem, I used to hate that, too. Eventually, I found the answer was not to wear anything in bed. That means that your dick is free to do whatever it wants and is not enclosed, under pressure and causing friction when you get hard. By the way, males get several erections during sleep so you cannot stop it happening. But being naked makes this much more comfortable. So, take off your underwear and see if it helps you, too. :cool:
     
  3. Yea I had the idea of just sleeping naked but unfortunately i have to live with my parents and siblings lol

    If you have your own room you can pull it off - get it, lol! :D But if you share with a brother, I guess not. :oops: Parents should not be a problem. So, just tuck your underpants under your pillow getting into bed and slip them on, getting out of bed. ;)

    I find it hard to sleep naked since it somehow gets me more aroused than normal. I find that sleeping on your side, with your leg folded (your knees tucked inwards) really helps with getting rid of those urges.
     
  6. I can relate to OP. I simply CANNOT sleep with underwear on. Nor can I sleep with basketball shorts on. Pajamas? Nope, can't do it. The only way I can sleep is naked. @IGY gives good practical advice. Sleeping with clothing on allows for too much friction when the penis is changing in size from flaccid to erect during the numerous nighttime erections must of which happen while we are completely unaware of it. I also sleep on my side with a body pillow between my legs. This is for comfort and it helps to keep my penis in a position such that I do not feel it resting on my bottom leg. That is also annoying. The friction between my penis and the body pillow does not seem to cause any problems...I think because the pillow, although next to my penis is not constricting it. There are some setbacks to sleeping naked though too such as pre-cum, cum from wet dreams being exposed onto your bed sheets and on you. You have to weigh the good with the bad and figure out what works best for you.

    So what is OP by the way?

    Does sleeping naked make a difference in not having as much friction and tension with your penis? I have been sleeping on my side since I heard that sleeping on your stomach increases the chances of a wet dream. Does the pillow in between your legs really work? I would do this, but I share a room with one of my brothers so I have no idea if I could do this. I can try it and see if works better for me, but I would have to be discrete.
     
  8. OP means original poster...the person who first started the thread.

    Thank you for the clarification. I thought it was a PMO term I never heard of before.
     
  10. That is going to be different for each person but for me, yes that statement is true.
    I know guys who are very afraid of sleeping on their stomach for fear of the natural instinct males have to hump, especially when erect against a warm soft surface.
    for me yes, it works great.
    I understand this can be a problem for most people. I grew up sleeping in the same bed as my cousin, and sometimes two cousins, and we always slept in our briefs...until we became teenagers and started sleeping naked. For us it isn't embarrassing or a problem at all, but I realize we are not typical. Basically, you have to try different things until you find what works for you.

    Alright, thank you so much for this insight. I will have to try it out in the next few days and see if it works. I might modify it to where I keep a shirt on, but nothing else and go from there, that way it looks like that I'm sleeping clothed and I can trompe l'oeil people. I will try several different ways and see if there is a way that will work for me.
     
  12. i recommend getting a body pillow from wal-mart or target if you are able. they are about 10bucks

    Alright. In the meanwhile, I have a long regular pillow that I never use to sleep on. Would that suffice until I can get an actual body pillow?
     
  14. As long as the pillow is not too thick. If it is the thickness of a person, your subconscious might trick your penis into thinking someone rather than something is between your legs and that could start some things that we dont want to start haha. Also, you will have to make several 'adjustments' when you first use the body pillow or body pillow substitute until you find out what is most comfortable for you. I know this is knit-picky but for me personally my penis has to be pointed up towards my belly. If it is in any other position, it causes more friction and that aint good.

    Well, I have no idea how thick a person is so this might be some difficulty in figuring out. :confused:

    You're right. We don't want my body to be tricked into doing things that it shouldn't be doing during this rebooting. And when you mean by adjustments, you mean by rearranging your body, or your penis, until you feel the most comfortable. At least you know where it works best.
     
  16. The penis.

    Yeah, absolutely. I must get restless as I sleep because when I used to wear pyjamas (the last time would have been about 15), my body would be facing one way and my pyjama bottoms would be facing the other way! Haha! :p I sometimes woke up and felt like I'd been trussed up like a parcel. :rolleyes:

    An additional factor is that sleeping naked is good for your plums. :D They can get too hot when encased in underwear. :eek:
     
  19. yes, my balls have to be free. hot balls also affects your sperm.
