Yep, you read correctly: this is a full post about boners. If you are afraid of the word boner or can’t read the word without laughing, then I suggest you stop reading now because I am going to use it a lot. I remember my first experience with a boner. It was gym class during 6th grade, and one of my fellow students had one. I couldn’t stop staring at it. SO many questions amassed in my head. “What is that?” “Why is that happening?” “Does he know what is happening right now?” I knew what is was on some level, but it was still a very confusing time for me. It took a long talk with my best friend before I could grasp the concept of a boner.
If you’ve ever wondered about boners, like what they are, why guys get them, and anything else related to a guy’s penis, then you have come to the right place. I’m going to answer some questions that readers have submitted to us. Some of these questions might seem funny, but some girls really have no idea what an erection is! So here they are, the top 8 questions about boners.
What Is A Boner?A boner is a slang would for an erection. An erection is when blood flow to the penis increases and the penis grows and becomes hard. Photo source: Shutterstock
What Does A Boner Feel Like?The feeling is different for every guy. But, most guys describe it as a pleasurable feeling where he becomes really aware of his penis.

Why Do Guys Get Boners Sometimes And Not Other Times?Boners are usually caused by physical or mental stimulation. If a guy sees something that he is attracted to in a sexual way this can cause a boner. Also, many guys can get boners by simply thinking about any sexual situation. Also, the weather. I know weird, right? Photo source: Knowyourmeme
Can Guys Control When They Get A Boner?When guys first hit puberty controlling their boners can become pretty hard. They have just as many hormones raging through their bodies as we do. So the slightest thing can give a guy a boner. The wind blowing a certain way. A subtle touch. Seeing a person they are attracted to. Really anything! As guys get older they can control their boners better because they recognize the signs that they are about to get one. But, even older guys still say they get boners sometimes for no reason.

What Is Morning Wood?This is a slang term for having an erection in the morning. Most guys become aroused in their sleep multiple times a night without knowing. Sometimes the erection will still be there when they wake up. Thus causing them to be hard in the morning. Photo source: Shutterstock
Do Girls Get Lady Boners?In the physical sense, no, girls do not become hard like guys do. But, our equivalent of a boner is when our labia and clitoris become swollen and more sensitive and we produce natural lubrication. Photo source: Shutterstock
If A Guy Gets A Boner When We Make Out, Does This Mean That He Likes Me?Again, every guy is different. Sometimes guys will get really caught up in a makeout session and gets excited, giving him a boner. He could really genuinely like you, thus producing his boner, or he could just be physically stimulated by the makeout session. The best way to find out? Ask him! Photo source: Stuffpoint
Does A Guy Have To Find Release For His Boner To Go Away? Is This Blue Balls?In short answer, no, a guy does not have to release for his boner to go away. You can ask any guy, sometimes they get boners when they are not physically or mentally stimulated and it can be really embarrassing. Usually, a boner will go away on its own in a couple minutes by a guy doing different tricks to calm his body down. Blue balls are a term that guys use when they are sexually stimulated and then denied release. Don't let a guy guilt trip you into going farther than you want to by complaining that he is in pain, or you have to finish him off. It is more of an annoyance than actual pain. He will be just fine.
