So I'm 24 and it seems like I'm constantly erect. There isn't 30 minutes that goes by that I'm not. The only thing that bothers me about it is at work the dress code is formal and you can clearly see it through my pants all day.

My question is, is this do to my age or something else?

Could be Priapsm
Marius665,
You may be suffering from priapism, or the condition that causes prolonged erection even without an arousal - basically you have a constant boner.

Although I would welcome seeing a woody in a guys pants, I think you should go see your doctor. In the interim, I pulled this stuff off the web -

Treatment for priapism:

Treatment for all forms of priapism aims to eliminate the erection, pain and preserve normal erectile function. In addition, doctors recommend that any erection lasting four hours should seek medical evaluation and treatment.

Ischemic Priapism

Ischemic priapism is considered a medical emergency and requires immediate treatment. If left untreated, the condition can significantly damage erectile function. In the early stages of ischemic priapism, a cold shower or ice pack may relieve symptoms. Exercise in the form of climbing stairs also may help. Medications, such as analgesics and opiates to control pain, may be recommended as well. Other treatments for the condition include --

Intracavernous Drug Therapy — This treatment is often very effective in treating low-flow priapism. It involves injecting drugs known as alpha-agonists, such as diluted neosynephrine, into the penis, which causes the veins to open. As a result, the blood circulation to the penis is re-established.

Shunt Surgery — During this procedure, a surgical shunt created to restore normal blood circulation. A surgical shunt creates a new route for the trapped blood to return to the body.

Non-ischemic Priapism

This condition does not require urgent treatment and in some cases, the condition may resolve itself spontaneously after days or months, at which point erectile capacity returns to normal. In some instances where treatment is necessary, the following procedures may be recommended:

Embolization — This technique reduces blood flow in the penis by obstructing the ruptured artery. This may be achieved by inserting specially designed coils, glues or spheres into the penis by a radiologist.

Surgical Ligation — The condition can also be treated by tying off the ruptured artery, which helps to restore normal blood flow in the penis.

Good luck,

Wendy

Marius665,
I don't think you would necessarily need surgery, as I mentioned its just stuff I pulled off the net and really you should see your doctor if your worried. Otherwise, I agree that you probably need to release more. How many times have you jacked off in a day? How soon after you cum do you get hard again? Lastly, how much liquid do you shoot? (i.e. major gusher or just oozes out)
