Yes, it is very much embarrassing for a man to have an erection in public. Luckily, thanks to Bloxers, that doesn’t have to be a problem anymore!
From the outside, ‘Bloxers’ look just like regular boxers, but with the ability to ‘block’ an erection from public view, it is more than ordinary. The folks at Bloxers are trying to raise $20,000 on Indiegogo. They claim to be all about “happy men, sexually, emotionally, medically.”
Our new product centers on keeping yourself or the men in your life from experiencing the negative effects of what is fundamentally a very good thing. It’s funny, innovative and ultimately for the better good,” according to the brilliant minds behind Bloxers.
According to their website, Bloxers inventors Maria Palla Valiente, Marta Marino Maza, and Chris Woods say,
Each pair has an all cotton exterior with a hypoallergenic stretch fabric sewn along the inseam. This fabric, dubbed the ‘Deflector Shield’ covers your crotch and deflects you to your chosen side.”
The Indiegogo page says the deflector shield “allows you to grow, but at a controlled pace,” which sounds odd, like it’s a drug that slows down your erectile response.
So presumably the “deflector shield” is pretty snug—snugger than a pair of boxer briefs—and it has a seam in front that directs your suddenly engorged dick up and off to one side without projecting forward. When they say “controlled pace,” they mean any eagle-eyed onlookers might notice your pants slowly getting tighter, but there won’t be any abrupt, flopping-around movement to catch anyone’s attention.
That definitely seems like it would work. Alternatively, you could take three deep breaths and try to remember what you had for lunch the day before yesterday. That works flawlessly.
