A full-blown erection refers to the state of a penis when it is as hard as it can possibly be. A full-blown erection occurs when blood flows into the penis’ erection chambers, thereby inflating the penis. The blood is stored within these chambers until the erection subsides.
Full-blown erection is sometimes shortened to the acronym FBE.
A full-blown erection may be experienced during a sexual encounter, during a massage (either intimate or therapeutic), in the morning (as in morning wood), or at other random moments. A full-blown erection can be embarrassing if it happens at an inopportune moment. However, a full-blown erection is desirable for sexual penetration, whether it’s vaginal or anal.
Many male erections are not full-blown and are known as partial erections. During a partial erection, the penis becomes harder and larger, but it is not completely hard.
Certain factors may inhibit a man’s ability to experience a full-blown erection, including fatigue, anxiety, stress, the consumption of alcohol, some medications and erectile dysfunction.
