Abstract

Further evidence that nocturnal erections are androgen-dependent and erectile responses to visual erotic stimuli are androgen-independent is presented from six men with secondary hypogonadism and six eugonadal controls. Erections during sleep were substantially less in the hypogonadal men, in terms of both tumescence and rigidity. In response to visual erotic stimuli, the percentage increase in circumference over baseline and the increase in rigidity were similar for the two groups.
