    I do - I think. Whenever I'm alone and naked I'm fine. Even when dressed (and wearing boxers) my cock hangs down and even swings but when I'm at the gym or my weekly nude yoga class it shrinks. I can't seem to do anything about it. I do the occasional tug but that doesn't last long. I don't seem to see other guys with this problem. In my yoga class I look around and all the other guys hang nicely but mine retreats.

    Does anyone else have this experience? How do you deal with it?

    I don't think it's all too weird. Exercise can make mine withdraw a bit at times.

    I don't know why, but my junk does the same thing. Its weird. I think we (as the owners) think it appears smaller than it really does. I usually have a decent hang, but whenever I get into large group nude situations I think my junk shrinks. It have no idea why it happens, but it does. I think it was Men's Health this month that ran a small blip about how the angle you are looking at your junk gives a false perception of how big it is, it seem smaller looking down at an angle compared to looking across and seeing it as if in a mirror.

    The short answer: yea, my junk does this. I don't think it's shy, just playing hard to get.

    Yes it happens in groups, but exercise, excitement, or fear does it as well. I read last month a new interpretation of the DAVID. Almost perfectly correct but people have talked for years about how the penis is small. Some have said because he was young, but the article pointed out that he is actually poised with his sling to hurl the stone. That mean you had to consider he was looking at Goliath and with the adrenalin flowing scared, he shrunk. So Michaelangelo would agree with you it happens.
    Happens to me sometimes when I do public and am nervous.

    Whew! You're right that looking down is not the best angle and that someone across the room might (probably does) see it totally differently. I also think that the (damn) fat pad we develop as we age doesn't help.

    That said, there's a 63 yr old guy in my nude yoga class who has the body of a 35 yr old! Absolutely incredible abs and chest and a fat hung cock! Someone told me he works out everyday at the university where he is an administrator. I only wish I had that kind of schedule.

    But I digress...

    Bleah, I totally turtle up when I even think of any public display, frustrating too when doing cam shots for the gallery or GF. :p Meh, it does lend one to being more apt to surprise in close, personal, closed door moments where things are more intimate...

    same thing here. Sometimes I am amazed at the sheer size difference from "shy" to excited. I wish mine were just semi all the time

    It's an adrenaline thing, look into alpha blockers like doxazosin.

    Seriously? That's a prostate drug. You think it would help shy dick syndrome.

    johnny, been thinking about this thread in relation to another thread about being able to ejaculate without an erection. I think they are related. There the issue is that erection and ejaculation are two different bodily functions which usually occur at the same time but do not have to be. I think that relates to what you had voiced here. different things excite each person, and as a situation become more common they relax and get used to it.

    I have known young men who could not stay hard for the first few days or weeks of marriage (the very opposite of what you would expect) because the new situation was so exciting to them. When they calmed down they made up for the lost weeks just fine.

    Yea, adrenaline rush in a new situation that stimulates your senses, while the old guy you mentioned has dealt with the uncertainty of the new and exciting.

    I've constantly had this problem, i'm a shrinker every day i exercise, and even in general during the day my cock shrinks. It used to lead me to believe when i was younger that i small penis (shyness definitely led to the shrinking, leading to me thinking i was small when in reality i'm prob above average)...but I accepted a long while back that i won't be flopping around when i'm jogging, that's just the way my penis behaves!

    My yoga class attacts all kinds. The regulars are there but now there are new comers. There was an older guy with the raging boner and dripping precum but he has not returned since that first session. We had two younger guys with great bodies but no boners although one of the regulars said he met one of the guys in another nude class sometime back and the guy sported wood the entire time - but not this time. The last class there was a guy with a micro penis. He was trimmed really close to the skin and there was only a slight hint of a head and hardly no balls at all. I'd love to get at least semi but it won't happen. Nothing there to really excite me. :(

    it depends really.

    I've noticed some days I go through a cycle of wood / limp when I'm working out in the gym.

    It also will do this when I am in the shower at the gym. Been too fatigued after my work out to really care.

    To a great degree, Lewisman's experience is my experience.

    Mine can be shy sometimes, and exercising definitely causes shrinkage, as others have posted. Unless I just got done with a hard workout, it usually has a decent appearance, even when I am naked in front of other people.

    I guess the "shyness" could be disappointing, but I am really not very self conscious about what other people think. It works when I need it to :wink:
