What do sleep-related erections say about your health?

Fitness enthusiasts have a lot of options. Many people use HRV monitoring to monitor heart rate variability and even take monthly blood tests to identify markers of stress or inflammation.

What if I said that almost everyone could access enough information without paying fees and with no needles? Answer the following question:

Do you find it too difficult?

Human males like to believe they are ready for anything. That includes sex. To be more precise, areas in his brain drive him to enjoy sexual interaction.

The brain requires the cooperation of other anatomical parts to achieve this pleasure. This can only be possible when biochemistry and physiology are within normal limits. This is what we need to achieve better performance.

What is the best way to determine the optimal physiological state of a hard-working male? A soldier who stands firmly at attention. A sail with a strong mast. A well-pitched tent at the first light of the morning. This is the result.

You might reconsider your exercise routine if your mornings aren’t very bright.

Morning Glory

Morning glory is not only a source for endless sexual euphemism but also has a scientific name: sleep-related erection (SRE). It’s also known as nocturnal penile tumescence (NPT), but it’s hard to tell with a straight face.

Technically, SREs include the erections that you have while asleep. However, unless you poke your partner in their eyes throughout the night, they are less likely to be noticed.

Rapid eye movement (REM) and sleep-related erections are common. SREs occur when we enter the REM phase in our sleep cycle. They last until the next non-REM cycle.

“Importantly it turns out that morningglory could be an amazingly good way to monitor both hormones and health in adult males.”

Run the Lead out of Your Pencil

Although we are aware of the negative effects of training too hard, it is something that many people ignore. It is easy to believe that you are not working hard enough to achieve your health and body composition goals.

This feeling that you’re not doing the right thing is not something that can be corrected by additional training or dieting.

While few of us can afford to attend multiple training sessions per week or have the time to train every single day, this doesn’t mean that we don’t risk overtraining.

Think about this: just four weeks of 1,000-calorie-per-day energy deficit (despite eating 3,000-4,000 calories per day) accompanied by only four hours of sleep per night is enough to make available testosterone levels drop by ninety per cent, with total testosterone well below the level at which frequency of morning glory would drop off (around 200ng/dl or 7nmol/l).
