When you wake up next to your man, sex might not be the first thing on your mind, right? But to your dismay, you find that your guy is pitching a tent while soundly sleeping. What should you do?

Most women just ignore it and go about their day. But some women are genuinely curious about this phenomenon. So what is it? Is he having a steamy dream? Is your mere presence beside him making him horny? Or, anticlimactic as it may seem, does he just need to pee?

Actually, it could be all or none of that.

1. His brain is pretty much turned off, which gives the penis freedom to do whatever it wants.

He might just need to pee. The bladder stimulates an area in the spinal cord as it fills, which can cause a reflex erection.

Whether or not you finally learn why morning wood exists, it all points to one thing – his testosterone levels and penile muscles are in good working condition! So to everyone out there, when your man sports a morning woody, just refer to the above reasons as the culprit!
