I had some questions regarding monastic and lay sexuality & stimulation.

1) If a monk or nun was to get stimulated (i.e. an erection), but it was involuntary, unintentional, an accident, or randomly stimulated, would this be breaching the Vinaya?

2) Also, how would the monks and nuns deal with the stimulated organ as it is simulated and they are aware of it?

3) What are some tips or practices for a layperson such as myself on keeping to a celibate and un-romantic lifestyle as I am struggling with guarding my thinking, seeing, hearing, and so on since I live in the very sexualized and romanticized U.S.?
