If you’ve ever wondered why you get erect when you kiss your girlfriend, you’re not alone. This is a perfectly normal and healthy reaction for both men and women. If you’re too young to know the answer to that question, it’s likely that you’re simply afraid of masturbating. Regardless of your age, erections are perfectly normal and a healthy part of being in love.
It can be embarrassing to discuss the physical discomfort you feel when someone kisses you. You might get stubble or chapped lips, and be embarrassed to bring it up. To solve this problem, you should broach the subject. Ask her if she feels uncomfortable. Often, she will be embarrassed about it, but it’s not as bad as it sounds. You can also ask her directly: “Why do I get erect when you kiss me?”
