Can boys feel themselves getting an erection?

Hi. i was just wondering if boys can feel themselves getting an erection. like, I cant feel myself ovulating, so I dunno.. Like, if i was a boy, and I got one right now while I was typing, would I have to look down at my pants to tell?

The Young Lovers' Guide replies:

In a word: yes!

Getting an erection is more like a girl's being aroused rather than ovulating - Male and female arousal are actually quite similar in several ways.

Interesting question!

Best wishes.

What do you want?

Not sure if you're doing the right thing - or if you're pushing things too far?

So ask. You don't need to make a big speech. 'Should I?' will often cover it - with a gesture
