Night erection – prevention of impotence
Nighttime erections are usually attributed to erotic dreams, a full bladder, or high testosterone concentrations at this time of day. However, the presence of this phenomenon in boys from birth disproves all these versions at once. An alternative hypothesis suggests that nocturnal erection is not a side effect of anything, but a targeted prevention of hypoxia in the tissues of the penis.
Why hypoxia is characteristic of the penis, how it is associated with age-related erectile dysfunction and how to maintain potency until old age – read about this in my new article.
The penis is sometimes jokingly called a muscle and there is some truth in this joke. This organ contains a huge number of smooth muscle cells (SMCs), which are the functional basis of the walls of the arteries and sinuses of the cavernous (cavernous) body. The blood filling of the corpus cavernosum depends on the tone of the SMC, and superficial (enveloping) veins with thin walls without SMC are responsible for blood diversion. These veins are located between the elastic corpus cavernosum and the rigid membrane with limited stretching, which is important for the implementation of the mechanism of a strong erection.Поділитися цим:
