Sure it is: Every person with a penis knows that it can have a mind of its own at times. Babies can get erections for no reason or at diaper changes. Boys in puberty get erections on and off during the day (can be embarrassing). Men can get erections with examinations by any sort of doctor and sometimes for no reason, even without an exam. The penis has nerve connections that can make it do things on its own. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
