Static Stretching and Sex Drive

Lately I noticed that I get kind of a weird sex drive and almost erections after static stretching sessions.

Expecially after I stretch my hip flexors and hamstrings (both are a little tight)

Can someone please explain how this phenomenon works or what’s the reason for it?

Did you ever notice it too?

Any answers are appreciated.

Your brain clearly thinks you are prepping to give yourself a bj. Totally normal no need to worry.

or that you’re limbering up to be bent over the hood of a car

I get an erection every time i lift

srs though a simple google search seems to shows some people get them with hip stretches. not a big deal

Some women have the big O while doing ab work, must be nice…

Haha I expected some of these comments…
But seriously why does that happen?

I think Elliot Hulse was talking about something similar in one of his videos but I usually don’t believe in his weird theories

Maybe he had a point with that one

Nailed it!

Seriously though, somebody pour some Science on this. Maybe stretching out the hammies leads to increased blood flow to your… erm… “Business district,” which is responsible for suddenly feeling ready to go.
