Default Why do men cross their legs?

I have seen it couple of times, not only does it look weird but it has to feel weird as well. I have tried it once just to see what I'm missing. From my personal experience I have the feeling that men shouldnt cross their legs, makes them less manly in a way.

Here is a fine example how crossed legs can entirely change the image of a player.








Don't confuse this posture with the crossing one.

I have used this sitting style quite often meself and it feels comfortable, but that's where I draw the line.

Note this is only my opinion, perhaps I'm the weird one. I would like to ask MTF what are their thoughts on this subject.
Do you cross your legs?

Please note your gender, and the one you prefer. You are not obligated to answer your prefered gender.

I rarely cross my legs but then I put my leg on my knee so it is not as crossed as Nadal's because that hurt my testicles. I usually use the other posture you posted, but lately I cross my leg less often.

I never cross mine. It makes me uncomfortable when another dude sits with his legs crossed.

It looks dumber with bare legs, obviously, but with pants on and especially formal attire (in a suit) it's a fairly routine posture. Diplomats and presidents and such do it all the time.

In formal situations, legs wide apart can have a vulgar appearance.

And you don't mash your genitals at the contact point between the thighs, they tend to displace below or above the thighs.

But nice subtle Nadal-bashing thread, anyway!

Trying it while typing this. My knee is digging into the side of the other leg and its unimaginably uncomfortable, but I'm feeling pretty, elegant and important.

Self-esteem at an all time high

Woah, that looks straight-up weird.

Predictably, it's Nadal doing it, though.

Does 'Dal have balls?

After 6-2 in TB I'm not so sure.
