Embarrassed by "showing"
I have been doing PE for several months now, and started as a way to try to improve EQ. I am 56 years old. When I was younger I was more of a “grower”, but with increasing age became more of a “shower”.
With PE I have had a pretty striking increase in flaccid size. I know that there are a lot of guys trying to gain flaccid size, so please don’t think I am “trolling” with this question.
I have pretty wide hip bones and a fairly generous rear-end. My waist line is currently about 2 inches larger than it was when I was in high school. I find that a lot of trousers that fit my waist and seat just fine, simply don’t have enough room in the crotch. Now that I tend to buy a lot of clothes over the internet, or at places like Sam’s Club that do not provide changing rooms, I find that more often than not, when I try new pants on I “show” pretty badly. My wife sometimes rules out new garments because they make me look too “graphic”, or too “anatomically-correct”.
If I try to keep the package centered, even with somewhat snug boxer-briefs, my glans tends to be abraded to hell by the rough crotch seam in the pants, if there is room in the center at all. I pretty much have to tuck it into one pants leg, and unless the pants are very loose, I have a pretty prominent bulge. Flaccid size obviously varies a great deal, but I would guess I am usually somewhere between 4 3/4 and 5 1/4 inch in length and about 5 1/8 inch in circumference, or a little more.
My question is directed more towards the older members who have a similar experience. Do you find yourself embarrassed by this? I think I might feel differently if I was 25 years old, but I am sometimes concerned that at my age, people look at me as if I am a “dirty, old man” walking around with a hard-on. Still, I refuse to wear big “clown pants” or throw out my old jeans that I have had for years.
