    Generally, when I'm sleeping and I wake up from a dream, my cock is hard. No big news there; that's what happens to healthy guys.

    When I wake up from a nightmare, however ... and I have some doozies ... I'm never hard. But then, in real life, I wouldn't stay hard if I were terrified about something.

    Do you find the same thing? Or do you wake up from a nightmare with your cock stiff in spite of the scary dream?

    I frequently wake up in the middle of the night with a boner whether I'm dreaming or not, (light sleeper) but I can't ever remember waking from a nightmare with one. I would imagine if you're scared your body directs the blood elsewhere, i.e. fight or flight.

    Interesting question.

    boners in the middle of the night are a natural reaction from the body relaxing and certain subconsious things occuring. youll find that if you have nightmares your body is far from relaxed. i tend to wake up from nightmares covered in sweat regardless of the temperature breathing hard and tangled in blankets. and no stiffy.

    yeah, when I wake up from a nightmare, even if I don't remember what the dream is about, I can tell because my heart is just pounding out of my chest and I'm breathing shallowly.

    Most of the time when i have a nightmare and I wake up I don't think about looking at my dick to see if it's hard, more thinking of what I dreamed and convincing myself that it isn't true.

    it's biological...in nature if you're threatened & may have to fight, your dick & balls will draw closer to the body to lessen the chance of being damaged during battle...

    during a nightmare, your body senses that it's in danger...therefore, no wood...

    When I dream about hot guys, I'm always hard.

    Hmm.. I do not know.

    Over night, I dreamed about witnessing a news helicopter crash on my street. I still woke up with a hard on...
