Morning erections are sometimes referred to as "Morning glories". Erections are experienced in REM (rapid eye movement ) phase of sleep. REM sleep is more frequent just before awakening than during the first part of the night. This is a normal finding and is enquired about by urologists to help discern between emotional and physical causes of impotence. (Erections during sleep are usually present in emotional causes of impotence.)
