    When I am working out my equipment shrinks like I am swimming in ice water.

    Yes it is nothing to worry about. Normal reaction of the body.

    I'll take a guess and say it has something to do with Epinephrine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    During work out, the body kind of mimics the flight or fight response and constricts the "unnecessary" blood vessels (when in a life or death situation the penis / testicles aren't exactly essential) so you have more blood flow to your muscles directly responsible for saving your life

    hmmm, i will have to take notice and see. I do know a buddy whose balls seem to shrink and get hard as marbles just before he has orgasm.

    Yeah, you're right. I was just going to say they tighten, not shrink too.

    My scrotum tightens just before I cum too. I thought everyone's did.

    Mine retract when exercising as well. One of times that I have observed my dick and balls to be the smallest was after finishing a marathon.

    This is pretty much what I always assumed.

    The body is pushing a lot of blood in to the muscle group you're working at the expense of other parts of the body.

    There is also the protection mechanism of less exposure, a lot of animals retract their penis inside their body during fight/flight reactions as protection of reproductive system is part of that, secondary but linked to blood flow redirection. Before clothing it would make sense for your package to shrink if you were going for a run, otherwise oooouch

    All the blood is going to the muscles, no wonder.

    Honestly, it sounds like the hygienic thing for them to do. Get out of the way when poop's coming. Avoid any splash-back.
