General Writing and Grammar Help/Get or make a man hard

Question
Dear Ted:

Is it "to GET a man hard" or "to MAKE a man hard"?

If both are possible, do they have the same meaning?

If not, when should I use each of them?

Would you please give me some examples?

Thank you very much for your kind help.

Paolo

*** Their meaning is the same.  "Get/make a man hard" means
to cause him to have an erection.

These sentences should NOT be used in polite company.  They are considered
to be sub-standard and slang.
