What should I do when I get an erection?

“My son asked me what should i do when i get an erection, i told him to just ignore it and think about something else. the thing is he wasn’t satisfied with that so then he asked me about taping it. Is taping ok or is it unsafe?”

A: “I do not recommend taping his penis. Once the erection subsides the tape will pull on the skin of his penis which may be painful. What you might suggest to him is to secure his penis in his underwear until the erection subsides.”
