Why do guys constantly adjust their penis and stick their hands down their pants?

Guys seem to do this in public; whereas, we girls would never think about doing such a thing. Why is this necessary in public? They even do this while pitching in baseball. LOL!

  • I've never heard or seen a man stick his hands down his pants in public. A lot of times men need to adjust themselves as it can get into uncomfortable positions especially when wearing a cup like professional baseball players do.

  • If it's not resting right, it's extremely uncomfortable and potentially injurious!

  • I think it's their balls their adjusting. I had a room mate that did it so much while we were talking that I finally burst out laughing one day and asked him why. he told me he didn't know, it was just a habit. 0. O

  • Well it gets into uncomfortable positions sometimes but I don't see why they need to put there hands down there pants lol

    • Sometimes pubic hairs (especially on the scrotum) are pulled in ways that hurt. The 'hand down the pants' maneuver is sometimes the only way to set thing right.

    • Oh ok that's interesting

  • Do you ever adjust your bra in public? Or pull your underwear Down? Guys gotta do what guys gotta do

  • Well, it sometimes gets caught up in our underwear and is uncomfortable, especially if we have to do something gymnastic like pitching a baseball..

  • Because they are indecent lol?
    Anyway cos it's uncomfortable as heck to suddenly have your underwear be pulling on your balls.

    Imagine having your ears pinched super hard lol , you'd probably want to do some adjustment as well.

  • Cause their manhood is not where it belongs and needs adjusting for comfort. Sometimes it can't wait for privacy to do.

  • Sometimes when we walk something gets caught in the pee hole and the pain is devastating. Good god the torment hurts. But yea its definitely a comfort thing and sometimes we adjust it if we get a boner in public so its not so obvious.

  • If you had a penis you would understand. Sometime it gets in a very painful position, particularly if you're large. It sounds like you're monitoring people's crotch areas a lot though. So why are you paying attention to people's crotches so much?

  • hahhah

    when i get a boner i do this to as well... to "tone" it down :-P

    • wait, you randomly get hard ons in public? @klaatu51

    • @thewanderingme oh well... sometimes... i cannot help it if it happens :-(

    • lol ;)

  • It's a guys habit to do it but I would never do that stuff in public

    • Mostly at night i catch myself in my sleep doing it i think i get sex somnia

  • If it's necessary to adjust things in private, that doesn't change when they're in public. Plus, it's part of the culture in baseball. Just like spitting.

  • It's a comfort thing. But I honestly never do it in public.

  • I usually just do the hand in pocket (s) move, or the outside the pants/shorts adjustment. I've never straight up stuck my hands down my pants in public though.

  • A penis tends to have a mind of its own.
    We can get erections at really strange and awkward moments. -sigh-

    The thing about an erection is that all of a sudden something grows in a space that wasn't made for that size. (especially when its squezed pointing down)

    The erection becomes uncomfortable or can even hurt, so the guy sometimes just move the erection a bit with his hands for the "stuck-in-fabric" part to pass.

    If a guy does that while watching you, then probably it is YOU that gave him the erection. See it as some kinda compliment.

  • Whenever I do, stick my hands in my pockets, then adjust it, especially with random boners. I attempt to be stealth.

    • I have heard a lot of guys say this. This makes sense.

  • It's because we've developed a dick-wedgie. There's just no subtle way to fix it.

  • just run arount with two ping pong ball sized objects between your legs that hurt if they´re squised in any way xD then you´ll know. also if you get a semi hard on, you have to adjust, because it can hurt if it´s in the wrong position.

  • I don't know about other guys but sometimes my penis gets stuck in the hole in the underwear where its sticking out instead of inside the underwear. Its hard to explain but I'm sure some guys know what I'm talking about lol

  • We don't just have a penis, we also have 2 balls and a sweaty scrotum... you dou the math

    • Oh my, that's heavy! LOL!
