I personally do it because it gets uncomfortable, however I try to avoid it in public

LOL, they just get uncomfortable and therefore need to be rearranged every so often, but I agree it's rude and we shouldn't do it in front of others! :)

It's just a change of position, you can't sleep on one side of your body all night, and the same goes for the "boy parts", specially if they got in an uncomfortable situations..

Where as we can't please everyone I commented on this topic a while back...Yes I'd agree that there is more to this than meets the eyes and for me I'd say it works on both sides of the fence...While many males think nothing of the urge to scratch away in public I might add those off limits places on they're body's that seem to be covered with tight attire or perhaps they are not keeping and or maintaining cleanliness on a regular basis do tell something about the individuals personality or are they just accustom to be doing this as a male trait or is it just bad manners taught at home from one or both parents...This is of course is the same for the female of the species but done in a different fashion and on different parts on the body thus,we have a social awareness of others scratching away that somewhat appears to be acceptable at any given time during the day or night...Do the scratchers always ask their partner to do the scratching for them...sometimes I'll bet as there is parts of the body that can't be reached easily...The most common of course is for males rearranging what bodily equipment is carried and stuck in a frontal position that gives the male more discomfort for varied reasons and I suppose women go thru the same or they would not be considered human so scratching and taking care of the itch I'd agree can become a normal everyday occurrence and in todays society I'll agree both natural and subconscious but still a very tacky habit to undertake in public so with that I can only say ''One good scratch deserves another ''.........

This might have already been covered in the other pages of comments but at least not in the first 4 pages. I get the distinct feeling that you think the guys know there doing it and not that it's a subconscious need to feel comfortable. I think guys think nothing of doing it because it means noting to us other then the itch stops or the discomfort goes away. No one ever saw a man readjust themselves and assume that they were ************ or being naughty, most of the time we scratch or readjust and no one says anything, we don't even know we've done nor do our friends notice or if they do they don't comment cos it means nothing to us.<br />
Now your ladies eye for detail is greater and the level of judgment between your own sex is much greater so that might explain why you notice it and we don't, it's natural and subconscious.

i only do that when i get a lapdance lmao!<br />
but when things get uncomfortable down there i go and hide to re set the jewels.l not all people are discrete about it

I do agree with you that rearranging is necessary.I do wear both male and female clothing and some times wonder why the designers don't take into account what is the most uncomfortable and confining part of the clothes we do wear.I can't figure out why womens clothes especially pants need to be so tight as ones eyes would pop out just trying to button them and walking wouild be more difficult....I suppose both men and women do scratch their parts rearranging not only the equipment but the undergarments they do wear and I remember having a teacher in jr.high that always needed to fix her bra strap over her right shoulder several times during the class hour while teaching at the same time so it's not always boys and men that have problems and the fact is that we all do,,If we were meant to have clothes on all the time then I would imagine that we'd be born with them on but thats not the case..Clothes only help restrict air flow and free movement thus causing why we need to make necessary adjustments as we do.There are no likes and dislikes as we all react as we need to and as we see fit and on this subject I could probably go on to the point of publishing a book so everyone is right and everyone wins because we're all human and that is the human condition like it or not ....

Would suggest you read all the other posts as they may change your mind....

Got to protest that most of us don't do the shifting in public on a regular basis. Those who do adjust "things" are trying to get your attention. Have you ever seen a male pigeon trying to attract a female or a male grouse performing? They, and the guys you've seen calling attention to their packages are saying to the world (females specifically) "I've got a GREAT thing here, don't you want to check it out and accept my seed? It's the obverse of women displaying their packages with short skirts and high heels and low cut blouses. We ALL want to be admired and to participate in the rites of procreation. And, if folks say they don't they are not telling the truth--or refuse to accept it.

I said to myself,I've got to read this one so I did and found some of your answers quite amuzing.My rendition goes something like this.Girls just don't understand the entire apparatus as a poor excuse for a design.The worst of it are the two golf balls in a bag which by the way is the poorest of all human designs.Yes they have their place and play a part in what makes a male itch them or try to get them out of harms way because if they are hit hard enough,the man goes down.As for the rest of the attached equipment,I think Elephants have it easiar because they can swing their trunks,pick up heavy ob<x>jects,use them for a way to eat,breath and can even raise them in a curled erect position to do all sorts of stuff.What can a male do with his trunk so to speak.Not as much as an Elephant but he sure has a hard time hidiing the buldge in his pants,has to rearrange it's position if what he is wearing is too restrictive,must scratch the itches if he hasn't kept it clean and during hot weather it's worse or going for it to calm it down if it gets to aroused while being around something that turns it on automatically which in some cases can't be helped because it seems to have a mind of it's own...The design in general would have been better if everything was retractable just like when a plane takes off it retracts it's wheels.The design was somewhat put back on the drawing board when animals started to evolve as their equipment is retractable with the exception of a place to stash the ball bag..Biological women have it much easiar as they have nothing to worry about with exception of what they do have to worry about but the male gender has to go around like a bunch of apes scratching,rearranging themselves for life or for as long as the elongated piece of equipment is attached.They do however in some case's have the ability to have it removed but for the most part they opt not to for fear they'll lose the pleasurable part which needs more scratching,tugging,pulling,stroking,rubbing and I NEED A DISCTIONARY TO COMPLETE THE SENTENCE..but after all said and done you wonder why males do that,it's simple,its the nature of the beast....Better go back to the drawing board ?????.

yes; if you gals had parts to rearrange all the time; you would do it too. Our balls (and penis) tend to expand/shrink with body temp; and outside conditions; so its a constant changing enviroment in our pants.

Well theres two things that could be going on. they could be in an uncomfortable position (generally will be a real quick adjustment) or they could be trying to make you look.

Sometimes we just need to. Walking with a hardon sometimes is uncomfortable and we need to mov him to the other side.

lmao...because it flops all around and they dnt want to sit down and look like they are sporting wood or have some kind of dysfunction

Its an absolute medical necessity. The blood flow to the flaccid penis is very small. If it gets pinched or wedged or just plain out of whack, a re-adjustment is crucial before actual numbness and eventual gangreen of the penis sets in.

because its part of an external body which gets in the way sometimes....but some men do it as a kind of signal, as if they were flashing a gun from within thier jacket, a sort of direct advert for attention to their "boy parts"

Has anybody ever seen becks adjust his ball parts? Bet that would be sight for sore eyes. mmmmmm thinking bout that one.

It moves around sometimes..they have to ajust it...I think.. :)

Hmm. I think they might be thinking about sex when they arrange their male parts.

Maybe we should get a double boob club going eh!

I hate double boob syndrome and so am guilty of bra adjusting. I've got hundreds of bras n no matter how will they seem to fit initially, you can bet by lunch time i'm due an erm adjustment, discreetly of course. ( I hope) :)

meow? x3

We don't like to do it, it's more of a necessity. TheTardyDodo put it fairly well.

I think most men naturally hang to one side. If somehow it gets rearranged they need to put it back or its uncomfortable. My boyfriend was an EMT for 30 years and said with certain equipment they would use to transport people with they would ask men if they "dressed left or right" which basically means what side does your d*** hang so they wouldn't squash it.

YAH!!<br />
so tru!!!<br />
there was this one time i was in a room wit only my boy cuzin n his sis,<br />
n u noe,he was sitting right opposite me on the bed n he kept scratchin tht thing?!!!!!<br />
OMG!!!<br />

Lot's of reasons. Tight or uncomfortable pants or boxers. Sweaty and sticking to your leg. Ahhhh It's in the wrong position and feels abnormal. Everything is laying on one side. I can go on and on with this. Sometimes, just hold em' cause we can. You know, like Al Bundy. (Love and Marriage) LMAO

So those guys got hit by JourneyFullofnfestations invasion of crabs too then. Nobody is safe!

*nods* Maybe?


Flashback to Friday night there Red, maybe?
