  • Usually about a half dozen times a day on weekdays if I had to guess, 2 times a day are just from having to take a leak, so those aren’t sexually based.

    I work with several females, most are middle age or older so I naturally am turned off by them, thankfully there are 2 very attractive females and 1 more exceptionally attractive female, i only know one of the 3 girls names so I’ll just use random names to refer to them. We’ll say that the most attractive female is Sabrina, and I’ll say that the other attractive girls names are Taylor and Hailee. I only see Taylor like 2x a day, sometimes once or not at all, but she’s got a nice body (I wish her boobs were smaller) and pretty face, I’ve only gotten an erection from her like 2-3 times since I started there about a month and a half ago. I see Hailee many times a day, and I usually get an erection from her 1-2 times a day, depending on her hair style, she’s got a good face, an inviting body figure, but to me her best asset is her booty. When she makes me hard, I stay that way for 5-10 minutes. Now Sabrina is just so cute and so attractive. I can see her probably two dozen times a day because there are huge windows that separate the room I work in from the waiting room and her desk upstairs, but I’m only close enough to her where I could talk to her like a half dozen times a day. I’ve gotten an erection from Sabrina at least once a day sometimes up to 3 times a day depending on her outfit, her body Is fantastic but her face is like an angel. Although I must say I can’t seem to figure out her boobs, regardless, She can keep me hard for close to a half hour. All of that info is probably too much, but to give the best answer I had to explain some details

  • When I was like 12-15 I would get countless boners a day. Completely without warning. Easily more than 10 a day. Super awkward and not easy to hide.

    Now I'm in my 20s and it's much easier to keep my mind out of the gutter and maybe only see 2-3 a day. What I'm wearing makes a big difference too. If I'm wearing baggy shorts, a gentle breeze could pop a boner. Also what I'm doing. If I'm drunk I'll end up getting more, because that perv filter is weaker.

    Generally though in just every day life 2-3 a day. And I personally dont think about sex every 10-20 seconds like the myth claims.

  • I can only choose 10+ times.

    Literally, its erected the entire day... until I have sex... and I'm not joking.

  • Mostly daily and typically between 5am and 8am, and the erection sometimes lasts for up to an hour. I often wake up from sleep and force myself to pee to kill off the erection.

  • I get several in a day, on average. Have since I was a teenager.

    As for how long they last; it depends on what causes them, and how long that cause is present. They can pop up for virtually no reason, and be gone in a matter of minutes.

    They can also happen for specific reasons, like something sexual, or something visual (my girl is lounging in her underwear, for example), and can last for hours.

  • Every time i read 1 of ur post

  • Each guy is different and things like age /health /relationship status come into play. Lets be fair, a hormonal teenager would run out of fingers counting up per day whereas a guy like me would be looking at the factors. I would say for me a full erection if in a relationship would be ideally looking for around an average of one per day, 2 or 3 if in a good spell well rested, weekend or vacation. If I am not with someone every day it probably lessens to 3 or 4 times a week. For purpose of question, I am talking full erections not stirrings because someone hot is on the TV

  • It depends on the day. If I have a long work day, it may be only once in the morning, and once in the evening. If I'm around the house, and I have time to do some teasing feeling with her, I may get an erection a number of times during the day,

  • If say maybe a morning wood once a day but myself... It does not happen much but can when I look at things that stimulate that which could happen about three or so times a week...

  • Nearly every morning, my dick is stone hard and numb, it lasts very long mostly until I go to toilet.
    Often at the day but it's rarely full erection, without sexual thoughts. 5-10 minutes long.

  • Dont mean that I jerk off each time it happens. That ha happens 2 to 3 a week

  • A bit too often if I do not masturbate regularly. Which as a Christian I am still on the fence on whether I should even do or not. An erection doesn't last too long if I stop focusing on whatever made me aroused, but the arousal itself can stay for days and, "reanimate", the erection at sporadic instances.
    In paraphrasing my favorite comedian Bill Burr, many women don't realize what it's like having a penis. 24/7, "do it do it, sex her do it". That's what it's like.

  • It all depends sometimes late at night i get erections
    and have to masturbate.

  • My typical erection lasts about 20 minutes without additional stimulation. Less if you pee, amd obviously ejaculation kills it.

  • probably more than 9, to be honest. It just happens sometimes, it's a guy thing. Probably just as often as it is directed to by seeing a girl that I find attractive. Especially if she dresses creatively (not to mean slutty) but rather piques my interest with her style.

  • About 5/6 times a day but if I have sex or jerk off then it's about 3 lol

  • Depends on the day, but I wake up with a hard on every morning

    • I’m lucky to not have to go through that

  • Usually only when I start fooling around with the wife or I want to masturbate.

  • I said less than once a day, lasts as long as it lasts, usually a minute, longer if it was from arousal.

  • Often during the day. I just have to watch my face on the mirror.

  • I voted F
    They can last anywhere from 2 minutes to 2 hours.

  • How can I keep the count?
