Hey people,

Many consider it un-masculine and uncool for dudes to sit with their legs crossed. This disturbs me slightly, as I find it is supremely comfortable for my knee-joints to sit that way.

Fellas: Do you do it?

Everyone: Do you frown on it? Why/why not?

I have to do it or my knees become very uncomfortable.

I'll do the thing where your ankle rests on your knee quite often, but not the full knee-over-knee.

#5 Posted by CrazyBagMan (849 posts) -

If I want to sit that way I will. Anyone who cares how another person sits is an idiot.

#6 Posted by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

Ugh, I want to live in a world where people can sit however they want to sit without being judged like that.

Unmasculine? uncool? give me a break.

#7 Posted by jking47 (1215 posts) -

I will sit with my ankle on my knee, but never knee on knee. My giant hairy man balls prevent my legs from closing that far.

#8 Posted by TheHT (11526 posts) -

Sure. Why not?
 
If you think that makes you uncool, you're probably uncool. If you think that makes you a woman, you're probably an idiot.

#9 Posted by Azteck (7449 posts) -

I do it from time to time, but usually just the ankle-on-knee thing. But if you seriously have an issue with people sit, you should maybe take a good hard look at yourself.

#10 Posted by TheHumanDove (2523 posts) -

I do it, as it's comfortable. People confuse sitting crosslegged with female crosslegged. Meaning crushing of the junk. You'll notice that a man tends to keep a 45-90 degree angle to the stationary leg (foot down leg). This allows for best comfort with no pressure on the genitals. Women cross their legs much differently. Unfortunately we as a society think of the way that women cross their legs when they envision men crossing their legs, which couldn't be further from the truth.

This.

Doesn't make you "unmanly or uncool" if you do the knee over knee, though.

Sometimes I do, it's hard to tell how often though; I usually change my sitting positions around subconsciously.

I think that's the idea.

There are more important things we could be discussing here.  Like politics or religion.

I stopped doing it after I found out it was a sign of homosexuality and used by gays to find others who share their inclinations.

#18 Posted by ShadowConqueror (3067 posts) -

For some reason, I came into this thread thinking cross legged as in like a monk or something.

But yes, ankle-to-kneel, not so much knee-to-knee, but if a guy did that I wouldn't think poorly of him.

#20 Posted by MentalDisruption (1645 posts) -

I wouldn't care if I saw a guy crossing his legs, but I don't do it myself. Ankle over ankle and ankle over knee, sure, but I just don't find fully crossed to be comfortable.

#21 Posted by Metric_Outlaw (1172 posts) -

Sexy as hell!!

#22 Posted by Jadeskye (4367 posts) -

sit how you damn well please!

#23 Posted by TheGreatGuero (9130 posts) -

No, I don't like to squeeze my genitals between my legs. I don't know how anyone can find that comfortable.

#24 Posted by Marz (5658 posts) -

I don't do it mostly because it's uncomfortable.

If I'm wearing the right underwear then yes, otherwise I just put my ankle on my knee.

#27 Posted by awe_stuck (800 posts) -

I do it standing up -pro version

#28 Posted by the_OFFICIAL_jAPanese_teaBAG (4308 posts) -

Balls. Thats the reason why I dont like crossing my legs like that (Im not talking about masculinity)

#29 Posted by lKennedyl (48 posts) -

Hot knee on knee action.

#30 Posted by ModernMajorGeneral (20 posts) -

The gayest thing I drew from the OP was the phrase "supremely comfortable". So I think you're OK.

#31 Posted by TeflonBilly (4713 posts) -

Sitting crosslegged shows everybody that you can fit a tiny penis and balls between your legs. I have to bring stirrups everywhere I go to sit so I can have my legs as far as part as possible to fit my enormous balls.

#32 Posted by N7 (3595 posts) -

Fucking commies, coming into our country and changing the way we sit. I AM DISGUSTED GREATLY.

#33 Posted by SlasherMan (1725 posts) -

Nothing wrong with it at all, even though I rarely sit that way. If your balls are getting crushed, then you're probably doing it wrong.

#36 Posted by Ketchupp (673 posts) -

I'd do it but I have a giant dong in the way. That does not mean I look down at dudes who do cross their legs however. I find a good calf-on-knee position best.

#37 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

I do, so yes.

#38 Posted by Ketchupp (673 posts) -

By the way this post reminds me of people sitting in movie theatres. I do find it terribly hilarious when guys put but their feet up with legs bent as if they were about to enter labor.

#39 Edited by SaturdayNightSpecials (2417 posts) -

I've never heard that. Seems like crossing legs has been a fairly normal thing for men to do for a long time, at least in the US.

I'd say it's more cool because it makes you seem at ease.

#40 Posted by dirkfunk (175 posts) -

I sit ankle on knee most of the time when my legs are not under a desk.

It's the classy thing to do.

I'd heard that too. I also heard that sitting with your knees apart was a signal that your crotch was available to any passing queer's mouth, or bumhole - and that sitting with your knee's together was an invitation for a gentleman to sit in your lap.

That's why I always cover my legs with a burlap sack before I sit down in a public place.

Has to be bad for your sperm count and sitting at my desk I can't seem to comfortably sit in that position

#48 Posted by SirOptimusPrime (2025 posts) -

I mean, you can but...it's just uncomfortable for me. Big legs and the whole ballsack thing make it very uncomfortable. But hell, I'll sit ankle-over-knee.

#49 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

I never sit that way, extremely uncomfortable. I do, however, sit with one ankle on my other leg's knee sometimes (or one foot under the other thigh/knee if I'm in a large desk chair like mine).

Whatever makes you comfortable dude.
