Erections

An erection is when blood rushes into and fills the penis, causing it to enlarge and stiffen enough to have sex.

Erections are a reflex–meaning not within a person’s control–so a cause can’t always be identified. Anything from a brush of fabric to the need to urinate can cause an erection, but most often, erections occur as a response to sexual thoughts or stimulation.

      i dont think you can get pregnant from having it on your hands then doing yourself. but yea, periods are only good for one thing….mother nature telling you you’re not pregnant.
