Tumescent Male Organ Emergency: Dealing with Priapism By John Dugan

As all men know, a tumescent male organ comes in handy most of the time – but when it turns into priapism, it becomes an issue of some legitimate concern

Full Content

In most cases, a guy would hardly consider a tumescent male organ to be a crisis. Sure, occasionally popping a noticeable boner while giving a presentation or when meeting a partner’s parents can be embarrassing or awkward, but it’s hardly an emergency. However, when that hardness is due to priapism, things are quite different. A man needs to take steps in order to maintain his male organ health and deal with the pain that accompanies priapism.

What is priapism? 

Priapism is named after the Greek fertility god, Priapus, who was

known for always sporting a very large, permanently tumescent male organ. It is defined as a medical condition in which a man’s member remains fully firm for an extended period of time – typically four or more hours.  While some men might joke that having a raging tumescence for four or more hours would be a dream come true, true priapsim is no joking matter. When a man has a constant boner, the process by which the manhood is kept firm for so long can cause a considerable amount of pain. It also can do significant damage to the member.

Why does it happen? 

Priapism comes in two forms: ischemic and non-ischemic. Ischemic means the condition is caused by the blood getting “trapped” in the male organ while it is tumescent and being unable to flow back into the body when the normal period of activity has passed. Nonischemic priapism results when there is a vascular “hitch” that impedes but does not totally stop the flow of blood. The nonischemic variety tends to produce excited reactions which are “softer” and don’t create much pain or damage.

Nonischemic cases tend to result from trauma – such as a blow to a hard male organ – and are usually treated with ice packs on the perineum.

The vast majority of cases of priapism are ischemic. Ischemic instances can come from a variety of causes. Sickle cell disease and sickle cell trait are a leading cause, affecting up to 64% of men with sickle cell. The sickle shape of the blood cells can cause them to “stop up” the flow, creating the painfully tumescent male organ.

Other causes include medications (including those used to treat tumescence dysfunction), cocaine, heroin, alcohol and certain spider bites.

Beyond pain 

Beyond the pain and inconvenience associated with a persistent firmness, priapism can damage the delicate manhood tissue. When the blood remains trapped in the member, it loses a significant amount of oxygen, which in turn degenerates the tissue.  This can have short and long-term effects on male organ function. In rare cases, surgery may be required.


A man experiencing priapism should consult with a doctor right away. The physician can determine the best course of treatment. Often, it may involve draining some blood from the member. In some cases, medication may be used to help open up the blood flow.

When a tumescent male organ turns into a case of priapism, a man is likely to experience pain and soreness that may linger even after the persistent hardness has been successfully dealt with. Soothing that soreness is crucial, so using a first rate male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) is advised. If a crème includes both a high-end emollient (such as Shea butter) and a natural hydrator (such as vitamin E), it can help to provide moisturizing relief that eases the manhood ache. It’s also wise to choose a crème with both L-arginine and vitamin C. The former is an aid in the process which keeps male organ blood vessels open, while the latter is used in collagen formation, which keeps the male member tissue strong.
