What if I experience a prolonged erection or priapism?
If you experience a continued erection and wish it to cease, then in most cases washing hands in cold water, (or possible taking a cold shower for a short period of time.) Many people have asked if a warm shower will work and the answer is ‘sometimes’. Cold water helps the body ‘cool off and contract’ aiding the erection to stop. We have had many customers ask and in some cases, ‘Yes’, a shower all by itself works. But for those who have experienced a continuous erection for several hours, sometimes a cold shower for as long as 3-4 mintues may be necessary.
