Edited on Thu Sep-14-06 06:12 PM by Writer
a) Complimented?

b) Looking for an available trashcan ("I feel ill!")?

c) Kind and offer your help, if he needs it?

1. B
I hate it when they do that. How would they feel if I scratched my ass while I was talking to them. :puke:

2. Even if it's just a little shift of the pants?
A pull at the waistband?

12. At the top away from the
dangly bits? I can live with that. That can be seen as just pulling up the pants as to avoid the plumber's crack thingy. You know? Plumber's crack: When a working man comes into your house to repair something and bends over you can see his ass crack sometimes. If he's pulling his pants up in a halfway decent fashion, I have no problem. If he is playing pocket pool, like one of my former bosses always did all day long, I'm offended.

13. What if the guy is leaning in a chair, resting in a slant...
his hands in his pockets, his thumbs behind his waistband, and then, like, tugs a bit?

3. Depends.
Is it the things are shifting adjustment? I have to fix my bra sometimes, and provided you're not a head of state or something if I need to straighten a strap while speaking to you, I will. I can't see why a guy should to any less.

Or is it the "happy to see you" adjustment? I'd ignore that, since it's generally involuntary and often unwanted. I figure if it were obvious every time I was inexplicably hot I'd have died of embarassment by now, so I offer guys the treatment I'd want and ignore it unless they draw attention to it or I'm interested.

32. good advice
you sound like a kind woman, LeftyMom. In the circumstances you've described, I agree, discretion is best (on the part of the 'viewer').

If it's just absentminded, like as a little boy no one ever told him to QUIT IT when he fussed around with himself, I'd even feel a little sorry for the guy.

If on the other hand the guy just appears to be unable to keep his hands off himself, thinking it's a turn on to you to have him draw attention to his special friend, then that's ridiculous and I think I'd probably just laugh.

49. We're kinda messed up as a society about sex
I think that's where the idea that a guy must be uncomfortable rather than adjust things (and god forbid it besome apparent that he's sporting) comes from. Sure makes me glad nobody can tell when my hormones spike for no good reason. Yay for indoor plumbing!

51. We are hot and cold when it comes to sex - blame the Puritans.
Sex has been "evil" to many Americans over the decades... so when we let out, by God, we REALLY let out! We let it RIP! Hence: MTV, Madonna, the San Fernando Valley "video" industry, and anything on HBO.

56. Repression leads to nasty things.
My favorite example is always Japanese porn. Because of obscenity laws they really can't show much normal sex. So instead they come up with bukkake and tentacle rape porn and golden shower movies and schoolgirl panty dispensers and who knows what else. Nothing good ever comes of sexual repression.

5. Hey, wait a minute!
Right now I'm still suffering from what I hope is a nearly ended case of epydydimitis, a surreal affliction of my genitals that I wouldn't wish upon my worst enemy. I'm more uncomfortable than James Caan in Eraser, and I'm adjusting myself at least as frequently.

This is not a regular habit of mine, I hope. So if you happen to meet me in the next couple of weeks, please understand that I'm adjusting myself because my fucking balls feel like they're in a vice. Perhaps later, option C would be appreciated, when I can walk more than a hundred yards without wiping tears from my eyes.

And no, I don't have health insurance, or even any reefer. I'm takin' it like a man, and I hope I am still one when this is all over.

You need antibiotics ASAP!! I have had this twice. The last time (about a year ago) I ended up curled up on the floor screaming.. God damn it hurts.. Really, get to the hospital. They have to treat you. You need pain pills my friend. Just thinking about it hurts. Good luck.. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH..

26. I think I'm gonna be okay.
We oughta form a support group or something. How about "Genitally Afflicted Democrats"? When we tell people about it, they'll say, "GAD damn!"

I'd been keeping a supply of Cipro around just in case that evil shit ever happened to me again, and it seems to have worked pretty well. I think tomorrow I'll be able to get around again.

As far as the pain goes, well, the mysterious epydydimitis is almost certainly related to that double orchiopexy I had a while back, which was done to correct the testicular torsions I had before that. My high tolerance for pain did me a real disservice this time, because I limped around for a week thinking that my problem was just that the weather was changing.

I look forward to not getting laid for less obvious reasons. And when I don't, I'll be sure to keep my hands away from the package.

40. Ah.. Cipro is key..
I have half a bottle just in case the evil E shows up again. My doctor told me to masturbate as much as possible during my affliction. It helps the antibiotics get through our boy bits.

Stay Strong... Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...

31. you should not notice
just as he probably didn't notice, it's probably just one of those unconscious things, you know?

it sure isn't a compliment, well, i guess in theory it is, that someone can be that unconscious and uninhibited around you, on second thought, no, it just isn't a compliment, the man being too nervous to be that relaxed is more of a compliment really

some people are just better socialized than others and it goes double for men

57. If they are just hitting that phase of development
you might want to buy them looser shorts (boxers) and pants. Getting hair in new places itches when certain parts of your body are pressed against it, also makes the random, um, rises to attention, less noticeable and more comfortable... Hope that wasn't TMI.. :)

36. D) Sympathetic
Most guys aren't boorish enough to do a package adjustment in front of someone unless it is a desperate situation. Understand that it is hot down there, with a variety of factors (the dude, the boys, hair, maladjusted underwear, etc.) that can make life pretty damned uncomfortable.

Option D: The Benefit of the Doubt. If he does it, odds are good that it *had* to happen.

41. Well RA
I agree many Americans are sex obsessed. I can't stand it if it's meant as a come on though. If there is nothing behind it then it means nothing and if I knew the person I would think nothing of it either (or like the poster above, one has a medical problem).

The act of grabbing oneself as a female walks by is frightening to me. "What the hell are they going to do next" comes to mind. I have legitimate reasons for not liking it. Some of us have been sexually assaulted and therein lies the rub. So if you have to adjust stuff just turn away and do so, just don't stand there drooling and staring at me as you "fix" it. x(

43. I know Billyskank that isn't what I meant
I am positive that MOST men aren't like that at all. It's my own issue about those who are like that and most are not thankfully.

I guess it's one of those things that I thought I had gotten beyond after many years and then suddenly someone brings something like this up and there it is needing attention again. It is my own fear of hurt and pain and I guess I needed to see that it's still hanging out deep within my own psyche. There is a bit of work to do on my end.

46. Glaaaaargh. Staring at you would make it creepy. Allow me to clarify:
(It seems I was right about the sex thing, but wrong about the people involved).

Basically, I was thinking of an adjustment in purely asexual terms, because that is the only form I had ever considered.

Anyone staring at other people or not bieng discrete about it while doing it is a weirdo.

The end.

We do itch, you know. Pretty badly, somtimes.

And if we don't bother to stop eating our sandwich while urinating, what makes you think that we'll stop scratching when in the company of a lady? Isn't it enough that we opened the door for you? Must we cease scratching ourselves in naughty places when in public as well?

60. For those suggesting that one should just "ignore it":
Now, that is absolutely what one should do. No doubt there.

But really now, would a woman (or man, for that matter) actually say something?

"Oh! You must be experiencing current discomfort in a particularly warm area of the body. Would you like me to avert my gaze?"

or

"Wow! I had no idea this conversation was this exciting. Should I come back later so that you have time to manage things?"

or

(speaking loudly) "My word! Do you have an itch? That's terrible! Would you like some ointment!?"


I mean, really, who actually says something in this situation? Unless you're the type who'd like to offer help. :shrug:

On a more serious note, a true gentleman (and I am one, in my own way :)) is able to perform an adjustment procedure so quickly, so deftly, with such sleight of hand that you'd have to be staring to even notice. Why are you staring? :)

69. I usually don't notice or just ignore..unless it was the idiot I worked
with at a retail store. I call him idiot not because of his need to adjust but because he eventually got fired for stealing.

He was just a kid..well not a kid he was something like 23 but a kid to me..but darn he'd reach right between his legs and yank and do this little hop backwards at the same time. Now..that might work in a setting that wasn't in public..but geesh..this guy would do it while talking to customers face to face.

I can still remember seeing a few customers faces turn red.
