This surprises me, and probably others. I had no idea that an erection could occur while a man is under anesthesia.
I know it happens during sleep, but that's not anesthesia.
Are you saying it can happen during surgery?

I'm not totally sure, but I think medical people would confirm this. It's my understanding that involuntary erections can occur anytime. It would, however be a question for someone familiar with the OR.

Carol, Yes it is quite common for a man to have an erection when he is under anesthesia. For younger men it is almost a norm, although it may not be a full erection. In fact there are many medical situations where a boy or an adult may develop an erection.

For readers of this thread, I have been a nurse for over 25 years. I am not going to be drawn into a discussion of how nurses deal with erections in male patients, other than to say I've always just ignored them. I was not taught nor would I had I been taught to strike a penis to relax an erection. I do remember vaguely being shocked to hear some much older nurses joking about the practice when I was just starting. I cannot remember any of the details other than the fact that they were much older than I was.

After hearing about this off and on since I was a kid, I found this one day. Can't verify the accuracy of it but
since it has caused this much interest and since it is not too long, I am taking the liberty off cutting/pasting the blog posting that caused me to ask the question.

The nurse's secret weapon
By TigerHawk at 5/13/2005 10:00:00 PM

On the off-chance that you get an erection in the presence of your nurse, be forewarned:

We were advised [in nursing school back in 1968] that we would be facing situations previously unknown to us. Even though we were expected to conduct ourselves in nothing less than a professional manner at all times, it was possible that due to the combination of young women, male nakedness and the Playboy version of the posssiblities during encounters with nurses, some of the male patients might behave in a manner that was disrespectful and have an erection.

This, of course, was unacceptable and had to be discouraged. The best way to go about this was to to carry a metal teaspoon in your uniform pocket. If any one would dare disrespect you by having an erection, all you had to do was to take out the spoon and give a good solid *thwap* to the offending penis and that would cause deflation and make it crystal clear that you would allow no more of that sort of thing.

We could hardly get to the cafeteria fast enough to get our spoons. There we were on the following morning - 6:30 am, nervous and not entirely sure what to expect from our first day on the floors, but we at least had the certainty of knowing that we were well-prepared to handle that one situation. We carried those spoons for weeks until it became clear that we would not be needing them after all.

During my many years as a nurse, I have seen hundreds and hundreds of penises of every shape and size and have never once had to deploy the teaspoon. So far.

Sounds like someone enjoyed playing practical jokes on the new students.

Reminds me of when I started high school and the older grades (especially the sophs) would tell the freshmen that you could buy tickets for the elevator at the school book store on your first day of school. They had no tickets because there were no elevators. Also, that you could go swimming in gym on Fridays. There was no swimming pool, either.

Also, reminds me of when I worked at the hospital. We carried a corpse to the morgue and on the way back, near the lab, we saw another orderly (male aide) coming down the hall towards us. One of the other orderlies hopped on the gurney and we threw the sheet over him. As the orderly got to us, we told him that the morgue refused the corpse and that we had to take it back to its room. At that moment, the orderly on the gurney raised up with the sheet still over him. The orderly that we played the joke on took off running the other way. He was found about 30 minutes later at home (he had run about 2 miles to his house.) We was told to never play that trick again!

Actually that was about what I had decided. Not that such a thing couldn't have happened back in the 60's but there is little or no documentation. I re-found the site that
I had run across last night, sent yall a copy of the posting that got me started wondering and then found the email address of the original poster. I wrote her a note a asked for confirmation or additonal info. She may or may not respond. She now lives in New Jersey.
I'm sure it might appear to be a little off-the-wall for someone to get a email asking about mens genitals from a total stranger.

Regards Reb

In the 1960s, while attending a large university on the West coast, my girlfriend told me that earlier that day she had coffee with one of her friends who was a nursing student at the same school. The nursing student recounted that she had been making rounds with other nursing students and a senior nurse. They entered a room with a male patient who had recently undergone surgery for a hernia. To inspect the incision the nurge removed the patient's covers and pulled his gown up exposing him to the student nurses. During the course of the examination the patient developed an erection. Without saying anything, the nurse took a pencil that she carried with her clipboard and hit the head of the patient's penis with the pencil. He winced in pain and immediately the erection subsided. As the group walked to the next room the instructor nurse told the girls that sometimes it is necessary to take action to stifle an erection so as to prevent further embarassment to the patient. The nurse made no other comment or instruction on this procedure which was not part of of the school's training program.

The patient probably never knew he was exposed to these nursing students, let alone had an erection in front of them. I wonder how he would feel if he did know? All I can say is I don't think alot of guys would like this situation, they never asked for it. I wonder if they asked this patient his permission beforehand? I do know that if you are fully conscious you do have the right to refuse nurses and medical students view/examine you if if involves nudity or anything embarassing. Were these nurses taking advantage of the situation because he was under anesthesia? It certainly looks so.
I wonder if the nurse would've hit his penis with a pencil if he was fully conscious? Would they have even asked his permission to lift his gown and expose him?

The patient was wide awake when the nurse and nursing students checked his incision following his hernia operation. The nurse explained that the students were there as part of their training and not to be embarrassed. When the patient was exposed to the students he developed his erection. The nurse said nothing but proceeded to check the incision, which was fine, and only afterwards did she flick the patient's erection with a pencil. He said nothing and she did not explain her action except to the nurse trainees later. This took place in the 1960s and may not be taught to nurses these days.
