Have you always "dressed" to the same side?

    Funny conversation with some friends the other night where one claimed that most guys 'dress' to their non-dominate side. His theory is that you tend to 'dress' away from the hand you use for JO. In an informal and limited subsequent survey I've found nothing to refute that. But I think I pointed to the same side I do now long before I knew anything about JO. How about you? Do you think anyone has really studied this?

    Whether it's been studied formally or not I dunno, but a generally accepted belief for decades. You dress to the opposite side of your dominant hand. so righties dress to the left, lefties to the right.

    It's based on the way you pee, assuming you hold your dick with your dominate hand. You then tuck yourself back inside your pants to the opposite side of that hand, it's just a matter of mechanics.

    "Dress" really means which trouser leg you hang down, only applicable to guys who wear boxers (and have something long enough to hang that low). But even guys with briefs tend to "point" away from their dominant hand. And by dominant I mean which one you use to write, and do most of your intricate tasks, not which hand you use to wank with, though it's often the same one.

    I basically flops over to the left on it's own.

    We are talking about which way our dick hangs or which leg we put on first...really confused and never paid attention...I wear boxers and it goes all over the place during the day but points slightly right when hard and I'm right handed.

    Off the shelf pants are usually tailored / cut with a little bit of extra room on the left side which is why placing your stuff over on the right side doesn't feel quite right regardless of which way you normally hang.

    When you have custom made pants you choose which side you want "fitted" to

    Is that sort of irrelevant if you wear briefs/trunks?

    No it's still relevant even with briefs because the enclosed package/bulge has to go somewhere, either left or right, gets squished in the middle with some tight pants and jeans.

    I am with you...have always found this question puzzling. Mine is in the middle. If it's not it becomes uncomfortable and I put it back in the middle.

    Neither left nor right. My manhood hangs in the middle and curls over my balls. And that's the only place it feels comfortable!

    True, not relevant if you wear snug briefs.

    I remember when I was 14 and about to attend prep school. My father took me to his personal tailor to have my suits made, since we would always be wearing our own business suits to school, not the uniforms I'd had previously in K thru 8.

    So this is 1963, and I'm standing on a little carpeted platform, with full-length mirrors all around, as the tailor is measuring me. My Father was sitting in an armchair nearby.

    The tailor ran his tape measure up my inseam and tapped my balls with his hand.

    "On which side do you dress, sir?" he asked me.

    On what side do I WHAT???

    I panicked for a moment, not sure what he meant. But then I figured it out in a flash, and replied: "Neither, I wear Jockey shorts." Tighty-whities we'd say today.

    And so he made my trouser legs symmetrical, without any biased allowance for my stuff hanging down one leg or the other due to boxers.

    Such tailoring considerations are likely unknown today with most men. In fact, who even tailors? You buy off the rack, end of story. And you hang where you hang, if you hang at all. Under dress trousers I still wear briefs, and avoid the issue altogether.

    my dick isnt big enough for this to be an issue. I never paid attention to which pant leg I go in first.

    I've never thought about it before, but I do "flop" to the non-dominant side consistently. I just think it's more comfortable.

    yes, probably a reason why is because I have a natural slight lean to the left. When I try and dress right it either feels strange or it eventually shifts back left.

    Right handed here ...so I dress on the left! It would only make sense for bathroom purposes. I would have to do too much work to get it out if I dressed to the right.

    OH MY GOD YOU'RE RIGHT.

    I'm left-handed and I pull my right pant leg on first, and put my right arm through the sleeve first.

    I'm right handed, my dick hangs to the right in my boxers, it's uncomfortable if it doesn't and I put my right leg into my pants first... Maybe I'm just weird. icon_cool.gif

    When you are getting dressed, do you put your left leg or your right leg in your pants first?
    Do you put your left arm or your right arm in the sleeve of your shirt/sweater/jacket first?


    ...right? icon_neutral.gif

    probably so, kinda interesting seeing how guys "dress", I've noticed more left than right.
