Why do a lot of young men, from adolescents to men in their early thirties, openly put their hands down their trousers in public? And why does the phenomenon appear to be getting more common?

I am young man in the said age group, and I must admit I'd not adverse to putting my hand down there (outside the undergarments) for a scratch, for repositioning, for comfort, for whatever, but only in private. I realise that other people might frown on it, think it's something sexual or might even feel threatened by it, so I don't do it when other people are around.

Recent examples of the phenomenon I have observed include: a man walking down a busy street, a man sitting in a train and my brother sitting on our parents' sofa at a family gathering. The man on the train was even less inhibited than usual, clearly making significant hand movements while it was down there. I was shocked.

As long as you don't then go to shake someone's hand, I really don't see the issue. If the baws are sticky they need a'shakin'.

Because walking about with a half-arsed weggie is one of the most uncomfortable things a man can face.

I enjoy a good old scratch especially just after trimmin'. Tend not to do it in the street, mainly in the boozer.

When you got to go you got to go.

I'm not talking about a quick, subtle rearrangement of underwear. I'm talking about a guy with his hand blatantly down the front of his trousers for more than a minute - 5 minutes in some cases.

I know what you mean. I have seen loads of people doing this recently, mainly neds mind you. I just assumed it was because they were so riddled with STI's that they had to have their hand there incase it falls off.

I'm guilty of this when i'm wearing shorts or trackie bottoms completely subconsciously, I instantly stop when I realise what i'm doing.

Yeah, like you've ever gotten your baws sticky. :P

I think it's disgusting. I don't even like when my husband does it in the comfort of our living room. If my knickers need readjusting, I'll go elsewhere and do it without an audience. I cannot think of a single situation where anyone would say "We're all friends here. Of course you can stick your hand down your pants and shuffle your genitalia".

i know a few people that do this as well.

back in sixth year some of us took first and second year football teams as part of a sports leadership course. one of my pals was standing at the side of the park during a game with his hands down his trousers, gripping his baws. it was at this point that one of the dads casually walked behind this guy muttering 'i wouldn't do that round here son' before taking up a new viewpoint of the game.

so be careful public baw-grippers, you're not far off a term in the jile.

One of my mates does this all the time, and while I'm quite comfortable with him doing what he feels the need to do, I think he might have a serious crabs problem going by the frequency of it.

There also appear to be wee neds who plant their hands down their kegs constantly, like Gnash I find it bizarre and maybe a little disturbing.

My daughter is in 6th year at school and she was playing basketball mixed with the boys at PE and when ever the ball was passed to her she wouldn't touch the ball, the teacher pulled her aside and asked her what the problem was, she told her she wasn't touching the ball because the boys never had their hands out their shorts and she wasn't touching the ball.

Sticky bollocks are an occupation hazard in summer for those of us who embrace the wondrous Y-front. They more than make up for it in other attributes, however, with excellent support and very useful insulation in winter. A man with Y-s does not freeze his baws off... he chills them.

Just to annoy the thread starter I went for a double hander on the walk home this evening, although no one was in eye-sight.

A double-hander? I'm impressed.

Surely a quick re-adjust using a pocket is the way to do it, pocket billiards if you will. That way there is at least a bit of cloth and slightly less manky than full hand contact, especially if you are about to go into a shop or that.

I used to get right nasty wedgies at work so I was always fidgeting, apparently hoping that the cloth would just release itself from my sweaty prison of an arse.

Then I realised that I don't give a shit about my work and just started blatantly sticking my hand down my breeks.

So shocked you went a bit quiet before smartly walking to the train toilets?

I think the real question is why are you fucking staring?

I thought this was just a neddy phenomenon, until last weekend when I was in Glasgow city centre and even the overly affected, "being a dickhead's cool", hipster brigade were at it.

It's bizarre. I can't think of any good reason why a guy would walk along the street with his hands, blatantly and purposefully, inside his boxers.

What the fuck man I never knew anyone still wore y-fronts, I remember one lad was outed in primary school and was quite rightfully ostracised.
