It wasn't until some time in the 1990's that medicine began to discover what all those boners were about. And it was from that discovery they learned that we guys have a built-in barometer: Our cocks. In meteorology, a rising barometer is a sign of a high pressure system moving in - typically meaning clear, sunny weather ahead. In men, it's a sign of high pressure moving into our pricks - typically meaning a good time ahead.
Barring any major medical, such as prostatectomy (and even now, some surgeons are able to successfully spare the nerve bundle), your cock is your personal barometer of overall health. Getting good, solid, rock-hard erections?
Chances are, you're in pretty good shape.

Well, that could be a signal there's something wrong - and not necessarily with your willy. Diabetes, high blood pressure, any number of health issues may be lurking. My own flagging pole - though I didn't know it at the time - was trying to tell me something was amiss. Even when we know we're ill, with a cold or the flu, say, our dicks can get knocked into the dirt about as fast as getting a kick in the balls during a pick-up game.
It's important to know what the underlying issue might be. Chronic dick dysfunction can lead to depression, which only serves to exacerbate the problem.
Pay attention to your pecker - it's always talking to you. You simply need to listen.
So, how about it? Is your Barometer rising?
