Many men with spinal cord injuries do not/ can not ejaculate on a regular basis, or even at all fro some, and there is no increased incidence of prostate cancer among this group... I wonder why.

My husband had a vasectomy 19 years ago. We were educated for a couple hour long sessions with the doctor who explained the procedure. He said he would make a couple of incisions and clip the tube ends.. when we asked why just clip and tie?  Where does the sperm go then? He said he still produces sperm but the ones that count are absorbed into the body  which is  perfectly safe!  They just  are no longer potent... I do not undertand it.. but reabsorbing it into he body we were told is quite safe... has that changed over the last 19 years?

Why does our body just have um masturbate even though we don't wanna? It's so stupid if you ask me.

So if I like wet dream like 2 times a month how can that be good? Maybe I needa do it more ha

you body is continuously producing new sperm.  it obviously can't all stay down there.  has to go somewhere.  aslo, as pointed out, flushing the pipes from time to time is good for your prostate.

Yeah, i'd say the reduced risk of cancer from masturbating is probably not that great, was probably just a popular story because it gives us men an excuse :P "I'm not doing it cause I like it, its for health reasons!" :P

Well it tends to get erect now and then and you notice it feels good when you touch it, so you keep playing around with it for a bit, etc...

Not sure actually. Maybe its to encourage you to mate with a female in the morning, after you've spent all night generating sperm?

Because at night the circus fairies invade your bed and turn your sheets into a circus tent and they need a pole to do this.

This is true.

I did read somewhere that one reason for having an erection on waking was because of a full bladder, most who have one on waking also have a strong urge to pee.

In a sense its a way to stop you peeing the bed unintentionally while asleep and has little to do with sex. You wake with an erection and the first thing you have to do is go for a pee!

this is true.  the phenomenon known as "morning wood" has little to do with sex, and is actually a mechanism to help prevent urination in your sleep.  It evolved because urine has a strong smell, and in the wild  if you accidentally urinated in your sleep, it would be pretty easy for your predators to track you down when you are your most vulnerable (sleeping).

that would only be a valid theory if men wake with erections every day.. AFAIK this is not the case.. although urinations is imminent shortly after waking.

Having said that I understand that the 'morning glory' as we call it, has very little to do with sexual function and more to do with sphincter contraction.

As you can tell obviosly, us humans still are wild animials no matter how much we gain.

So if we make things, that means they would have to be natural to since we are? ha

An odd topic of conversation...
Nocturnal erection in males of many species occurs intermittently during the night.
It is not generally associated with dreaming.
It is observed in very young children and has, so I have read, observed in utero- clearly before they learn to avoid bedwetting.
It cannot, therefore, be a mechanism to avoid nocturnal urination.
There is a hypothesis that it's to ensure that, at least for part of the time, the organ concerned is provided with enough blood to maintain its health.

Not that i doubt you, but have you ever tried urinating with an erection?

It's perfectly possible but it tends to be messy.
Perhaps more importantly, if this were the reason for men not wetting the bed you would need to find the reason for the other half of the species not doing so.
Also, while there's probably a correleation between impotence and enuresis, one doesn't always imply the other.
