'Dancing with the Stars' brushes up against another erection challenge

The issue of male arousal has once again reared its ugly head on "Dancing With the Stars."

Season 22 contestant Antonio Brown got a rise out of co-host Erin Andrews after his performance in this week's episode, when she quizzed him about the challenges he faces during the competition series.

After Andrews fluffed the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver with talk of rubbing and touching, Brown admitted that he had experienced some difficulty during rehearsals due to "blood flow."

Andrews appeared to pick up what the NFL player said without the need for further elaboration.

And the Internet seemed to interpret Brown's statement as "Yup, boner." But then that's usually the Internet's response to everything.

This isn't the first time that the ABC dance competition has found itself publicly grappling erection issues.

Watch Brown's saucy back-and-forth with Andrews here.
