I am very conscious about crossing my legs the right way when I'm sittting but for what what ever reason I always end up crossing my legs like the women.
I finally figured it out that its more comfortable for me.

I just tried it again and I can't even do it...there's a gap I just can't close...

I usually cross them the perpendicular way, right ankle sitting on my left knee

its fine.

now... there is a way of crossing legs that only a woman can do. cross legs feminine style, then place the upper legs ankle behind supporting leg. a woman can easily do this. men can't at all.

I can do that fine.. My testicles end up below my legs, and my penis sits on top. It feels less comfortable than crossing the regular manly way though.

wtf? I do that all the time, and I see men do it all the time. All my life I was never aware of a gender difference between ways of crossing your legs. This is mind boggling. Where do you people come up with these things?!
Anyway I cross my legs the "manly" way sometimes too but only when I'm alone or with people close to me because it's just really rude looking.

I do it when I play mandolin. It's a lot easier and a lot steadier...

The question is HOW do some men sit like that? Do they tuck their bits and pieces somewhere? If I try, big jim and the twins get smashed and it becomes very uncomfortable.

I sit like that occasionally. Sometimes it's more comfortable on my knees than to cross my legs in the "manly" style.

crossing your legs gives your back support

It's a very professional look I thought. People that crossed their legs perpendicularly always looked more informal to me

Yeah, I wondered that every time I see a guy sitting like that. I can't do it.


I also think 'gay' everytime I see it. Every gay guy I have known would sit with his legs crossed way like a woman.... so the mental association formed.
