How to Hide an Erection

Three Methods:

Getting an erection in a public place can be embarrassing, but you shouldn't freak out. It's important that you keep in mind that erections are a naturally occurring thing, especially if you're a boy going through puberty. Luckily, there are several ways that you can cover up your erection or get rid of one. If you use the right methods and wear the right clothes, no one will even notice your erection.


Covering Erections with Clothes or Objects

  1. Wear tighter underwear.Instead of wearing loose fitting boxers that make an erection visible and obvious, you should consider wearing tighter underwear like briefs or boxer briefs that can hold down your erection and make it less obvious.
    • Avoid wearing soft silk underwear because they can rub against your penis and cause you to have an erection.
  2. Cover your crotch area with a large object.You can cover up your erection with a book, blanket, laptop, backpack, or anything else that can go on your lap. This will cover up your erection so that no one knows you have one.
    • It's easier to cover your erection when you're sitting down.
  3. Cover your erections with a long shirt.A long shirt that hangs over your crotch region can help you hide your erection. Buy baggier clothes that hang over your waistband and crotch area so that it can cover up your unwanted erection.
  4. Tie a hoodie or sweater around your waist to hide your erection.When you tie the hoodie or sweater, drape the material over your crotch area. This will conceal your erection to anyone that's looking at you.

Pinning Erections to Your Body

  1. Pin down your erection with your hand in your pocket.Put your hand in your pocket and use your hand to press your erection against your leg. Continue to hold your erection through your pocket so that it isn't visible on the outside of your pants.
  2. Put your erection in your waistband.Put your hand in your pocket, lift up your erection, and put it in between your waistband and your waist. This will hide your erection when you're standing or walking. You'll need a belt or an elastic waistband to do this.
  3. Cross your legs.When you're sitting, it's easier to hide your erection. Cross your legs and pin down your erection with your thighs. This may be uncomfortable at first, but your erection should eventually disappear.

Getting Rid of an Erection

  1. Flex your thighs to draw blood away from your erection.Flex the muscles in your thighs for 30 seconds or more. This will draw the blood into your thighs and get rid of your erection. If it doesn't work immediately, keep flexing and use it alongside another method to get rid of it.
  2. Put something cold on your erection.The cold water from a shower will reduce your erection. If you aren't at home and can't take a shower, try pressing something cold against your crotch, like a cold can of soda.
    • Cooling is used in hospitals to remove an unwanted erection that lasts longer than 4 hours.
  3. Urinate.Sometimes a full bladder will cause you to have an erection. This is especially common in the morning when you first wake up. Urinating may help you get rid of your erection. If you're having trouble peeing, a warm shower or bath can sometimes help you urinate.
    • A full bladder presses against the sacral nerve, which is why you get an erection.
  4. Exercise.Light exercise like a jog or bike ride may draw blood away from your erection and cause it to subside. If you're too embarrassed to go outside because of your erection, you can do jumping jacks or squats in your house.
  5. Go to somewhere secluded until it goes away.Over time, your erection will just naturally go away. If you have the choice, excuse yourself to a secluded place until it finally goes down. If you're in a public place, you can excuse yourself to the bathroom until it goes away.
  6. Concentrate on something non-sexual.Concentrating on a math equation or a sport will take your mind off sexual thoughts and can help you get rid of your erection. Focus as hard as you can on an assignment or a game that you have coming up to take your mind off of sexual thoughts. You can also think of something that you find disgusting or gross, like someone throwing up, to stop your sexual thoughts.
  7. Pinch yourself.Pinching yourself may take your concentration off your erection and into the pain that you feel. Pick a spot on your arm and pinch it until your erection begins to go down.
  8. Masturbate.If you're at home, masturbating will get rid of your erection. Excuse yourself to a private place and make sure you have a towel or napkin to clean up after you're done. Rub your penis until you achieve an orgasm. After masturbating, your erection should subside.
    • Do not masturbate in public.

    Yes, this is a classic move.
  • Question
    I have underwear which rubs against my penis, so I get an erection randomly. I'm 13, and I'm scared to ask my mom to buy me new underwear because she will ask why. What do I do?
    Community Answer
    Tell her that your underwear isn't comfortable, or just that you want new ones because you don't have enough underwear.
  • Question
    When I am touching or kissing my girlfriend, semen starts coming out of my penis. It is an awkward situation for me, is it natural?
    Top Answerer
    Yes, it is perfectly natural. She is your girlfriend, you both like each other. Besides you mentally liking her personality, your body also naturally responds to her physical presence. Kissing is a natural way to arouse your body. Remember that it also arouses her body, she might be having the same thoughts and feelings, so you can talk about it. When erect and aroused, the penis produces fluids as a lubricant to make sure sexual intercourse goes smoothly. A woman's body does the same. This is the same liquid that carries the sperm out of the penis during ejaculation and it is nothing to be ashamed of.
  • Question
    How can I help not get an erection when my girlfriend rocks back and forth on my lap slowly, and sometimes bounces?
    Community Answer
    Unfortunately, you usually can't help it. If your girlfriend is rubbing up against you, that might be a sign that she's sexually aroused or teasing you. If she notices the erection, act natural and relaxed about it, and apologize if needed.
  • Question
    How do I get my girlfriend to notice my erection?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    If it's noticeable enough, she will likely notice it herself. If she doesn't react, she likely is not interested or feels awkward about it.
  • Question
    What if I have an erection while kissing my girlfriend? I don't want her to think I'm a pervert.
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Don't draw any attention to it, if she doesn't notice. It's very natural for that to happen while kissing.
  • Question
    How do I hide an erection when slow dancing (I am 12 years old)?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Wear dark jeans in place of dress pants and make sure that your pelvis area is not touching the person you are dancing with.
  • Question
    What happens if my mom comes in while I have and erection?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Act natural. If your shirt's long enough, try pulling it down to cover it up more. But don't worry if she notices. She's a mom, and they understand that these things happen.
  • Question
    How can I get my girlfriend to stroke my penis if I get an erection?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    You shouldn't "get her" to do anything sexually. She should move at a pace that is comfortable for her.
  • Question
    Can women get erections?
    Top Answerer
    Yes and no. An erection is the result of increased bloodflow into sponge like cells that makes them bigger and more rigid. Women experience this increased blood flow as well, and it makes the female genitals swell, too, though considerably less visibly. Certain parts of the vagina, near the clitoris, are thought to be a "prototype penis", and though they are just a few strings of tissue not more than a centimeter long, they seem to be able to get "erect".
