Mechanism of erection
an erection starts in the brain. Physical and mental stimulation is required for an erection to begin. This stimulation causes nerves in the brain to send chemical messages to nerves which are present in the penis which results in the free flow of blood into the penis. This leads to high pressure in the penis which in turn traps the blood within both corpora cavernosa and then the penis expand. This causes the penis to sustain an erection.
When the inflow of blood is stopped, then it opens outflow channels and then penis becomes soft. Then an erection is said to be reversed.
