Erection, Emission & Ejaculation

1) Parasympathetic long word makes it longer -Erection (vessels dilate in
ischiocavernous sinuses for starters)

2)Movement of semen to ejaculatory ducts--(flight type-Sympathetic)

3)Rhythmic contractions of bulbospongiosus and ischiocavernosus (this is relatively new info)--somatic motor efferent of S2,S3,S4. This is ejaculation
