Therefore, the persistent erection which is unprovoked and inexplicable is obviously spiritual, and it is a morbid interlacing of mind and physiology.

Male erection is a complicated reaction involving biological factors such as anatomy, blood circulation, innervation, endocrine and other non-biological factors such as psychological, social, interpersonal and related coordination and interaction. The normal erection, one is after sexual arousal in sex life, sexual intercourse can be performed at this time; two is the natural erection of asexual objects, usually not more than 5 minutes.
