Why do i get an erection when i poop?

Whenever i go to the bathroom and go poop, i get an erection. it usually only happens when its solid and fairly large.

why do i get an erection when i'm just sitting there not even thinking of anything sexual?

i'm not trying to be disgusting. i just really want to know.


I'm not gay. I don't enjoy it. It just gets hard. idk

Update 2:

    Sorry this is so late, but if anybody is looking for the answer: the size of the poop caused it to push against your prostate. This pressure on the prostate causes the erection, it is a normal response, it can happen if you hold in a fart too long aswell. If it happens too often, maybe check with your doctor about an enlarged pristate. Otherwise it is normal.

    Many of the causes of erectile dysfunction are actually psychological. Understand that this is not the same as saying that it’s all in your head, because it’s not. Learn here

    Psychological issues can easily lead to a variety of very real physical ailments. If that surprises you, it shouldn’t. Stress can lead to heart disease, so why can’t other psychological issues lead to ED? It’s a pretty common, fairly well understood phenomenon.

    Stress is, in fact, one of the leading causes of ED, which makes it a particularly nasty condition (because it also can lead to heart troubles, so it hits you twice). Long before stress kills you though, it will impact your sex life in a major, and entirely negative way.

    Truly a question for the ages, thank god for internet phones. It seems for me to only happen when there is a lot of gas in there. You know... You start popping and you feel your blood pressure raise in your face, feel dizzy and you wonder if you will die on the toilet, then you get a *****. Glad it's normal

    It happens because when you "push" the poop you are forcing blood in the general area which includes your Bishop. It happens to me and its' really not arousing at all.

    Lol. Perfectly normal dude, your not gay. Dont worry

    Large and hard crap is the reason why you get an erection.

    Theres a sensitive tissue that connects from inside your butt to your ball sac, so larger harder crap usually make it to hitting that spot.

    Its like a g-spot but only for men lol.

    It's because your poop is rubbing against your prostate, which turns you on, therefore you get kind of hard. There is something called "milking" the prostate, where you stick two fingers up a guys butt and if you hit the prostate and thrust, you can make a ejaculate in seconds.

    You're a guy. Different things can turn you on sexually. Such as sight, touch, and hearing. Also in the case of you having perastalsis in your rectum that could cause some of your nerves on or near your penis to be stimulated.
