The period shortly after death seems to be a strange thing. During this time, the body has undergone various changes, from being alive to being completely dead. Although some of these changes (such as hardening and discoloration) can be seen in crime TV shows, other changes seem far-fetched for the human body.
Nonetheless, what the corpse can do is shocking and creepy. From the birth of the awareness of death, the changes in the body after death are almost unrealistic and impossible to achieve. The following list is not suitable for the faint-hearted or those with stomach problems.
esponding to certain stimuli when alive is natural and occurs even in the most inopportune of times. While it can be embarrassing if the moment isn’t right, it’s nothing near as creepy as a dead man getting an erection.
Once the heart stops beating, all of the blood that was previously circulating begins to trickle down and collect at the lowest part of the body available. In some cases, depending on how the man died, such as those who have suffered a spinal injury or passed facedown, this can be in the genital area. The continuous pooling of blood is only natural, as is the reaction it causes in the dead man’s penis, referred to as priapism.
While this is uncommonly seen now, it can also happen with women. When a woman dies similarly, her labia can become enlarged, and her clitoris can swell.
