Question

Hi,

I keep having erections and they're geting out of control. I have at least two a day or sometimes five. Every time I hug or kiss my girlfriend I get an erection and I'm only 11.


Answer

Welcome to the world of adolescence. What you are experiencing are called spontaneous erections. They are a normal part of life for a male just past puberty. They will get worse before they start to calm down. See: Why do boys get spontaneous erections?
