Just about any time I undress in a public or semi-public setting, I immediately get a big erection and it remains erect until I get dressed again. I am usually able to keep it hidden, but it is embarrassing when, for example, it happens in a locker room at school. I even avoid public showers because of it. Is this normal, or is there anything I can do to make it stop happening?
Yes it's definitely normal. It seems like a nervous thing, or your thinking too much about getting an erection before you undress. Don't think too much before getting undressed, that sometimes happenes to me, i think 'don't get an erection' over and over in my head, and before you know it, it's happened! Don't look down at yourself and don't look at others. I find looking up at the ceiling helps. :)
