Male Masturbation/erections


I am worried about having an erection when I'm in the locker room.  I'm not worried but really scared out of my mind.  Is there any way to prevent erections in the locker room?

Erections are good.  You should never be ashamed of an erection.  Erections are the path to happiness for every male and how our species continues.

But if you don't want an erection at a particular moment, there is a trick that can help you.  If you have to be naked in the locker room at 10:00, you can bring on an erection at 9:30.  By 10:00, that erection will be gone and you won't have another one until later.

I write from the point of view that masturbation is normal, healthy, and fun, and even necessary to sexual health. I am able to answer questions in all areas of sexuality.


I am the author of the web site and have been answering questions about sexuality (especially masturbation) from both males and females for over 13 years.

I have a Ph.D. in a field unrelated to sexuality from one of the leading educational institutions of the world.
