Is there a correlation between sexual orientation & the direction a flaccid penis hangs?

    Over time, I've come across guys naked in the locker room or in the bedroom, or from watching porn, and after observation, I've come up with a theory: Most gay men's flaccid penis hangs towards the left and most str8 men's penis hangs to the right. I don't think this observation is an absolute on one's sexual orientation, but I want to survey RJ members on which way does their penis hang to see if people's responses reinforces my theory?

    Mine is to the left and I'm gay.

    Can you tie it in a knot?
    Can you tie it in a bow?
    Can you throw it over your shoulder like a Scot does a boulder?

    I once read that you can tell whether a man who wears boxers (or else goes commando, I suppose) is right or left handed by the leg he hangs down. Assuming he can hang that far, and when wearing tight pants with a high rise. In my day that was also referred to as the side on which a man "dressed," a question a tailor would ask you when fitting your trousers.

    It's claimed that most right-handed men dress to their left, and vice-versa for lefties, due to the way men return their dicks through their pants flys. I'm right-handed, and I'd tell the tailor I dress left (I haven't heard that question asked in years, though). So I wonder if the OP's observation is really more revealing about which hand is dominant, rather than which orientation.

    Ahhh...that makes sense too. Initially, I thought the "dress" direction might have to do with which hand the guy uses to masturbate as that may have some effect on the turn over time. But I never watched enough people masturbate, as funny as that sounds. icon_lol.gif

    Well, the cause of a left or right bend in a dick, especially when hard, is indeed speculated to be due to masturbation. The hard-on has to conform to the curve of the palm, whether for a leftie or a rightie. Over time the dick is permanently changed.

    Or so I've read, but I don't know if that's just a myth, or if there's any credible studies about it. I can say that I have a slight curve to the left as I stiffen, that can disappear when I'm super hard, and that would conform to the shape of my right hand.

    All I know is that if it points up you are horny.

    If mine goes to the right it means I am sleeping on my right side.

    Usually if you reach out and fondle one and its owner does not slap you, he is gay.

    you mean a penis is supposed to be long enough to hang to one side or the other? icon_cry.gif

    Well Price Albert Queen Victoria's consort and Husband had the same issue, thus the Prince Albert I ring though the nob so you can tie it to your leg.

    You got it backwards. It depends on the way it points when it's erect. If it's pointing up some dude's ass... YOU ARE GAY.

    I think the curve or angle in most men comes from which ever way they forced it to sit during those moments of spontaneous erections while dressed, and often out in public where you couldn't just let it loose without making an embarrassing spectacle of yourself. I've seen guys with hard-ons in public that were held in place by their pants and/or underwear in a curved down position or angled to the left or right. After years of doing that during puberty and afterward, the erect shape develops that way permanently.

    If everyone wore loose clothes, or none at all, you'd probably see a lot more that stand up straight or stick out straight with a lot fewer curves or angles, except perhaps the up-curve, which I think may be the natural tendency for most men.

    As usual about everything you post here, you are wrong. The ring through the foreskin (not the urethra as is done today with cut men) was to hold the penis UP, not to strap it down.

    Aristocratic men in the first half of the 18th Century wore very tight trousers, almost like leotards, an indication that they could afford to own & rides horses, and might have served as military officers. Without the modern elastics we have today for underclothes, their stuff would create a big bulge down their pants leg. And indeed, some period depictions do show this.

    A solution was the PA, as we now call it, a metal ring in the foreskin. Through which a tape was wrapped around the waist. This modestly held the dick in an upward position, and also drew the balls up a bit, too, which aided horseback riding.

    A silly solution to us today, when we can choose from athletic supporters or elastic briefs for our needs. But that technology was not available nearly 200 years ago, and so the PA was created.

    What remains unclear is whether Prince Albert himself actually had such a ring or not. But it existed during his era, and his name has been associated with it.

    I'm gonna say that the direction you hang is probably a better indicator of your circumcising doctor's handedness than your own!

    What if you have a "DeceptiCock"? Or "Autoscholong"?

    What I mean is my penis is comically small until it gets hard, at which point laughs become cries.

    So, if you're uncut, then what?
