Erections

Forensic practitioners may also be asked to comment on a person's ability to achieve a penile erection, particularly if the male is young or elderly. Masters and Johnson (153) note that during their research, "penile erection has been observed in males of all ages ranging from baby boys immediately after delivery to men in their late eighties;" they report that one 89-year-old study subject was able to achieve a full penile erection and ejaculate. Therefore, it is not possible to reach a conclusion regarding erectile efficiency based on age alone. When a defendant reports erectile dysfunction, the expert opinion of a urologist should be sought.

Penile erection may result from visual stimulation (including fantasy) or tactile stimulation. The penis, scrotum, and rectum are all sensitive to tactile stimulation (153), which may explain why involuntary penile erections can be experienced by a male subjected to nonconsensual anal intercourse.
