Fear, turtling, and gym shorts first post
First time poster here. I used to lurk around a bit, but I’ve finally decided to commit to the program and actively seek guidance. It’s great to be a part of the board, and I hope to learn a lot from you guys.
For starters, even though I’ve got a decent BPEL (needs improvement, of course), perpetual turtling is a serious problem for me. I understand that the newbie routine will help with flaccid length in due time. I also know that losing that extra flab around the pubis will help me hang a little looser. But, in the short term, I’m hoping for a few recommendations with a more immediate issue.
To put it bluntly, my penis is a coward. My fight-or-flight response is like a hair trigger: I turtle when I’m anxious, when I’m slightly cold, and, specific to my new health regimen, it happens every time I work out. I can literally lift a box to carry up to the attic at home, and my dick contracts like I’m being chased by a bear.
I’m already self-conscious working out in public because of how out of shape I think I am. Add to that the little ball that juts out from my gym shorts and the lovely ladies working out at my gym, and it makes for a very unpleasant and awkward experience. Everyone says nobody looks at you at the gym because they’re all absorbed in their own routine, but my own routine involves constantly thinking about my hibernating dong, and I dread being there.
I’ve thought about stuffing for such occasions, but too many humiliating scenarios run through my mind to really try it. It’s too degrading, anyway. I’m hoping to find some gym shorts other than the nylon ones I keep at home, ones that might conceal the area better. If anyone has any suggestions on that front, or with calming down whatever adrenal response is causing my penis to retreat and stick out like a stub, I would be very appreciative.
I really need to get into the gym ASAP. That and PE are my two main priorities right now, and I’m trying to take care of anything that might deter me from my goals.
