Most healthy men experience a tumescent male organ in their pants several times over the course of an average day, usually without giving the fact too much thought. After all, a frequently enlarged male organ is generally a sign of good manhood health habits. But sometimes that enlargement occurs during a very public moment. When it does, men tend to react to it with one of two emotions: pride or embarrassment. Yet why should so many men feel the latter rather than the former?

Adolescence

One reason why a tumescent male organ tenting up in the pants creates embarrassment may be that it reminds a man of an unfortunate moment from his childhood or adolescence. Most guys have a "classroom boner" experience of some sort. For example, many guys recall having to stand in front of the entire class with a raging hardness quite clearly visible behind their zipper. In some instances, the lad may have been forced to read his homework out loud in this situation - and suddenly that one page paper seemed to take as long to read as a full length novel. Or he may have been called to answer some math problems on the blackboard, only to discover that his male organ was sticking so far out that he had to stand back from the board.

Yet not every man who stands firm before his class suffers from the experience. In some cases, a guy can enjoy the fact that he is exhibiting his wares, safely tucked away behind a layer of denim. He can enjoy the fact that his manhood is making an impression and not care whether others may be sniggering; he either takes it in stride as simply something that happens to a dude’s anatomy or takes pleasure in flaunting what he has.

Adulthood

Instances of unwanted public tumescence tend to diminish as a boy becomes a man, perhaps because he becomes more adept at hiding them or perhaps because he learns to take pride in his physical attributes. In adulthood, it’s likely that embarrassment more often occurs when a tumescent male organ pops up outside of the pants in certain situations. As an example, think of the many stories of men who have cast firmness while bare during a physical examination by a doctor. Similarly, many men have found their favorite body part hardening itself in the sauna or steam room of a gym, in full view of a bunch of other bare men.

Still, a tumescent male organ can arise while clad and create an awkward situation. Most of the time this is in a business setting, as a kind of adult corollary to the embarrassing classroom tumescence. Some men find that their healthy manhood is upstaging them, say, during an important business presentation.

Again, rather than feel embarrassed, some men may take pride in this. Their exhibitionistic streak may allow them to enjoy the situation and perhaps treat it as a way of sensually intimidating both men and women in the audience.

However, as adults, most men tend to take this situation a little more in stride. They are usually better capable of shrugging it off as "just one of those things." And that’s the attitude men need to take. There’s no reason to be embarrassed about tumescence, nor is there any reason to take such pride in it that a man goes from feeling justifiably comfortable with his sensuality to preening about it in a manner that can be obnoxious, unappealing or threatening.

A man should be just as comfortable with his manhood when it’s out of his pants, and that means regularly using a superior manhood health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . The best crème will contain a wide range of vitamins, including A, B5, C, D, and E, the topical application of which enables them to do their job more effectively. It should also include a potent antioxidant like alpha lipoic acid to battle the free radicals that cause member skin to appear early on aged.
