    Hey everyone,

    I've recently been having this problem where my cock shrinks and shrivels up while working out. It gets really uncomfortable, and it does not feel good lol.

    Does this happen to anyone else? Are there any tricks to stop this from happening?

    Thanks for your time! :smile:

    I've had this conversation with many male friends most of us have the same issue, after a workout I just jelq a little and the problem is gone, or better said it all comes back, lol, but when it comes to swimming, that's a nother (bad) story.

    Same here. Doesn't really hurt, but it sure doesn't do much for my ego in the locker room when I pull off my shorts to my shriveled-up post-workout stump! A few tugs in the shower usually inflates it back to normal soft-size. I agree that it must be a blood flow issue, since it seems more severe the harder I work out.

    It's totally normal. There are lots of theories behind it - blood flow being one, tightening up to prevent damage being another. Anyway, it happens to just about everyone so don't sweat it too much, OP :)

    It's normal. For every guy who doesn't shrivel up, there's another five who do. Get in the shower. Rub some soap on your cock and balls. Let some hot water run on your tool. Your cock will soon be swinging just fine.

    This has never happened to me. I get so heated up from the workout my nuts are sagging. Cock stays about the same. I’m working out in a controlled environment, I’m sure if I went for a run on a cold morning my junk would shrivel up to stay warm. What type of work out you guys going?

    I need to correct my earlier post. I have gotten hard-ons whilst working out. Once was when the nipples of the girl I was doing Muay Thai with was visibly showing quite pronouncedly through her sports-bra and the other one was a girl I was grappling with said, "You sure do sweat a lot when you work out... I bet you'd be fun in bed."

    Submission Grappling, Kick boxing, and speed lifting. But I do have to say I sometimes get turned on by things in a sparring session such as a particular position or sight in which case there isnt enough room in my cup if you know what I mean haha

    I didn't read all the replies but it's perfectly normal. Blood is required by the muscles that are being exercised and so it will get pumped there before your egotistical penis has a chance to think twice. This is not always the case, but it is most of the time and the explanation doesn't get any simpler. You may notice that erections are not very common while eating or shortly after eating. Same principle as blood is required by and pumped to your stomach, etc. for digesting.

    I get "shrinky dink" in a bad way when I go running! I wish there was a way to keep that from happening. I'm a "grower" and not a "shower", so it really makes me sad to see my dick like that!

    Perfectly normal for most men...so since most will be just like you...why hide because of shrinkage?

    Join the majority, be proud and secure....and strut your shrinkage! :biggrin:

    I would...:yup:
