    I often get bad headaches when I get an erection. Does that happen to any of you? I think its because of all the blood rushed away from my brain and the blood vessels get constricted. Let me know if you have experienced something similar. I'm definitely considered a "grower" which means the volume of blood coming in is quite large.

    When you get an erection the blood vessels in your penis have relaxed. The thing is, they've relaxed all over your body at the same time so it's not likely that restriction is causing your headaches. This is definitely something you should talk to your doctor about. Pain is the body's way of saying something needs attention.

    Are you using Viagra or other erection aids? They can cause headaches, heart flutter and a flushed feeling.

    It is not unusual for headaches to be associated with sex. The medical term is "coital cephalgia." I get headaches if I hold off cumming too long, and sometimes after ejecaulation. You can read a medical article about sexual headaches here:

    In any event, it would still be a god idea to mention this to your doctor.

    Not really answering your question but I've had headaches that were made were by trying to perform sexually - I think the increased blood pressure in your head due to vigourous straining and puffing and panting causes that hehe (and could maybe bring on a headache - not sure?).

    I would be surprised if your cock is so big that it deprives your brain of oxygen though mate hehe ;) Could be wrong of course.

    I don't think anyone has a cock big enough to make them pass out. It has grown with the rest of your body, so your heart and vaculature will be adapted to it.

    The headaches could be benign coital cephalgia - do they get worse as you build towards orgasm?

    That doesn't happen. Arousal causes the heart to pump faster to deliver aerated blood to all areas of the body. Blood will not be redirected from the brain to some other area. When you're engaged in sex, you will feel your heart pounding faster than usual. Have you ever noticed that when you're having sex that your face gets warm and flushed? Do you really think that would happen if your head received a less than adequate supply of blood? Warmth and redness is produced by a glut of blood, not a loss of it. The body knows its functions well enough not to deprive vital organs of necessary blood just to sustain an erection.

    Picture this - if you have ever donated blood, they ordinarily take about one pint, and generally that causes no adverse reaction at all, occasionally just a slight dizziness for a very short while. Keeping that in mind, now picture the size of the bag they collect the blood in, or any container that holds one pint of liquid. It's difficult to imagine that any cock, regardless of size, could take in that much blood going from flaccid to full erection. So, the stories we hear about "passing out from drop in blood pressure due to an erection" are just pretty damned hard to believe. There are other factors, though, and Pecker was correct - blood vessel constriction is not usually the cause of headache, but dilation is. Most migraine medications work primarily by selectively constricting the blood vessels in the head that are dilated and causing the pain.

    Mention it to your doctor. It could be related to arousal, but probably not related to erection.
