This is a real issue with guys.
Here is a very incomplete short list of things that may cause a guy to think about sex, or be in use when the thought occurs.

Little baby ducks
Watermelon wine.
Pigs.
Commercial Jets flying 30,000ft overhead.
Rocks.
Lawn mowers.
Onions.
Trees
Inkjet printers
Boiling water.
Crescent Wrenches.
Hubcaps
Table legs
Colnago
Roofing nails
Vacuum cleaners.

Face it we got problems.

Well, I dont think you are taking into consideration the process of massaging the Private part to get the circulation back so that the nimbness will go away.
