    This one is for the men...

    but, I'm going to use a metaphor to weed out hecklers. Lets say its a cold fall day, and the lizard doesn't want to be out, so he shrinks back into the hole to keep warm. Is this normal?

    perfectly normal. wait....you just mean it's smaller right? not actually inverting itself?? inverting is bad. shrinkage is good (well, not if you're trying to impress anyone).

    Not at the moment...anyway, that happened when i was out riding on into the teeth of a 15 mph, 40 degree headwind with just some mountain bike baggies on, it never does that on its own.

    Wait, are we talking literally or metaphorically? In other words, is there an anatomical issue or was he told to go f*ck himself?

    your testicles can be damaged from the cold and are designed to move in and out of the body as needed to regulate their temperature. But Mr. Lizard should only shrink do to the contracting nature of cold temperaturs. I don't think there's a mechanism for said lizard to hibernate. In other words, shrink is okay, but if it reacted like testicles, i'd go see a doctor.

    I'm good then. I hate asking such personal questions here, but I was just seeing if it happens to others.

    Dude, I guess you never saw the Seinfeld ep about shrinkage. The guy was swimming in cold pool and got out and while changing a woman walks in on him. He then spends intire ep. trying to get woman to believe his lack of sizable package is due to cold water induced shrinkage.

    It's actually less that they'll get damaged and more that sperm production peaks at a slightly lower temperature than the body's core 98.6 degrees (37 degrees to you wacky metric users). Therefore the scrotum is designed to drop the testicles away from the body on hot days so they don't get too hot, and pull em back in on cold days so your nice warm body can keep them at optimal sperm production temperatures.

    It's all about procreation and passing on your DNA. Everything else is just noise.

    My rule is...

    The tighter the pants (or tights) the larger the cucumber I insert.

    He is asking is it normal for the penis to go inside like a turtle. I have had this conversation MANY a time with friends, as far as I can tell it seems pretty normal. Everyone says it happens. Funny story, friend called me up he says "dude, when I take a shower and the water hits it, it goes in like a turtle..that normal?" I cracked up for about 10mins...classical guy talk.

    yes it's normal...but it does feel pretty awkward when your on a roadbike and it's turtling...makes me want to adjust, even though it will happen a block later again.

    I guess having an LCD display that shows off fake nudes of christina ricci would fix that....even though some may not appreciate that method

    So I'm guessing you can do his famous trick then? The one he could do before he got all fat?

    Along the same lines (not that I'm turtling or anything but just getting a little cold in this area) what do you guys wear to keep warm on cold days? My problem is that my package and my stomach areas are cold when I get done riding (40-50F temps). The rest of me is toasty warm and comfortable. I've been wearing my regular bibs with knee warmers and an insulated long sleeve jersey. I have bib tights but they are definitely too warm for 40-50F. I get warm almost immediately when I put them on. I'm thinking 30 and below for those. In the meantime though, I'd like to not freeze my balls off.

    Any suggestions? Descente makes some cold weather bibs but they are $100 and I'm hoping for a much cheaper solution. For my chest, I just plan on getting an undershirt to add another layer and that should take care of it but I can't think of anything comfortable for the other area. At one point on my ride, I had decided that going with the Superman look (windproof briefs over my bibs) wouldn't be such a bad idea (I was particularly cold at that moment) but when I got home my senses returned. I'm not that super of a man to pull off that look. Hopefully someone here has BTDT.

    well, 25 bucks, go down to your local piercing and tattoo shop... Put a snap ring in there, then you have a point of contact... then you could hook it to your bars, your coat zipper, whatever is convenient... Tada, no turtling!
    Irregardless is not a word, and you do not sound more intelligent using it.
