While guys tend to pride themselves on their ability to get stiff on call, this same issue can become problematic when a woody shows up uninvited at the wrong time. Many a man has been surprised by a spontaneous expansion at an inconvenient moment that has left him twisting, turning, and contorting himself to avoid detection of the unwanted wood.
On the bright side, an eager male organ is generally a healthy male organ, and with a little forethought and a few strategies (literally) at hand, men can either disguise the evidence or get rid of the unwanted wood, at least until he is free and clear to resolve the matter in a more pleasant fashion.

Think unhappy thoughts. Tumescence often starts in the mind, and a man who is entertained by interesting images or naughty thoughts will often experience a very physical response to his secret visions. The opposite can also be true, so when a spontaneous stiffy shows up, thinking of less pleasant or exciting things can put a damper on the furnace fairly quickly. Picturing an angry boss, a looming deadline, or the wife’s book club meetings can quickly cause the manhood to subside.
Avoid tight clothing. Another trick to dealing with the evidence is just to cover it up. Hipster jeans may look great and do a good job of highlighting the quads, but on the other hand, they leave little to the imagination. Looser trousers or a long shirt – untucked – can do a better job at shielding a perky male organ from view.
Get a grip. While considering roomier wardrobe options, it’s a good idea to choose pants with pockets. Guys often have their hands in their pockets anyway, so it is not likely to be noticeable if he grabs hold of an unruly manhood and holds it against his body to eliminate the pup-tent effect. Of course, this approach should be carried out carefully to avoid further stimulation.

Ice the flames. Tumescence occurs because the pertinent body parts are filled with blood; so it stands to reason that redirecting the blood supply will help to calm things down. Grabbing something really cold and holding it close to the abdomen will trigger a rush of blood to warm the body’s core, easing the stiffness almost right away.
Walk it off. On the same principle as icing, exercise can also redirect blood flow to the limbs and heart in order to keep up with the increased need for oxygen in the large muscle groups. In addition, moving around with purpose signals the brain that it is not, in fact, time for an encounter, and the brain will pass the message along.
