Penis outline

The trend now is to wear tight lycra shorts without underwear.

Does this boy realise that his penis outline is visible for all to see?


















It is not just junior competitors that are revealed in this way - look at these men's rowing teams...

I regularly go out running wearing black lycra shorts with nothing underneath. I always point my penis up and to the left, if you know what I mean. At first I was very self conscious, but now I realise lots of men do it.

It is done on purpose. Penis Pride is the new thing.

Sometimes guys don't put a lot of thought into it. They know what spandex shorts are, put them on and maybe realize, yes, my penis is there. Of course it will show, the tights are tight after all. Maybe he does not analyze it too much and just goes on with his activity since everyone else is wearing spandex too. Your penis is not something to be ashamed of either.

I had to wear an all-in-one suit for rowing at school. I was not embarrassed about it but the outline of my penis clearly showed through, without even having an erection. I tried straight up, off to the side, and finally settled for down the leg.

It's fine as long as your penis stays central, but with fast-paced or energetic activities it tends to point to one or other side. To preserve some modesty I wear plain-coloured boxer shorts under my lycra shorts. Even then my penis ends up pointing to the left. Once you are used to it you are not even really aware. And in any case it's better to have a distinctive bulge than none at all.

I'm curious; why is the outline of a males body more objectionable than a females?

Both have outlines in exercise clothes

It has not been suggested in this thread that the outline of a male’s body is objectionable and no comparison at all has been made with females. Sports uniforms are designed as they are for reasons: in the case of running it is for aerodynamics and support, and in the case of rowing it is for aerodynamics and not having loose garments catching on the boat or oars. The point being made here is that a characteristic of tight lycra shorts and all-in-one rowing suits worn by males is that the outline of penis can often be clearly visible. This is because often for running and nearly always for rowing no underwear is worn to prevent chafing. To the spectator seeing the outline of a penis may be objectionable but it also may be desirable or even essential. To the wearer showing the obvious outline of your penis may be undesirable but it also may be acceptable or even pleasurable.

Natural human modesty may mean that some do not want their penises clearly discernible, and may wear tight briefs or another undergarment to contain and obscure it. Others may just accept it as part of a feature of their sport, reinforced by the fact that other competitors are in the same situation, and the reality that some may be admiring what they see may not matter or even occur to them. Yet others may enjoy being admired and may take advantage of the lycra kit to make their penis distinctive and noticeable. Some of the replies to this thread suggest a combination of the first two scenarios applies most often. Given that sports teams, schools, universities and major sporting organisations all permit the wearing tight lycra kits, there is certainly no implication that it is in any way objectionable.
