Do you prefer this? (Open Crotch)Or this? (Closed Crotch)Well I have good news for you on either decision. They are both acceptable! I know that most men’s (especially most young men) first impression of the closed crotch leg cross is that it lacks a certain masculinity. People often say that this is how women cross their legs and that men doing such give off an undesired vibe. I’m here to tell you to ignore the criticisms of the closed crotch leg cross.
Like Ted Danson says, in the video above I posted from the amazing HBO series, Bored to Death, a closed crotch leg cross shows that you are sophisticated and professional. An open crotch leg cross shows that you are relaxed, casual, and comfortable. Good news again! They’re both acceptable everywhere!
In situations like business meetings or televised programs, you may not want to look like you are over-relaxed or overly comfortable, and sometimes, the open crotch leg cross will give off this impression. In these circumstances learn to go with the more sophisticated look.
Making the transition: Most men have a hard time switching from the open to closed leg cross. When they try it, their man package gets smashed and is immediately uncomfortable. You must mess around with it. Do some tucking and pulling to discover how you can comfortably sit in this postion. Many great men and presidents only allow themselves to sit in this leg-crossed-position.
Do not be uncomfortable with your appearance, your sexuality, or anything else when you are deciding how to sit in public. It is perfectly acceptable to sit in either position and you should not be judged when doing it one way or another (unless of course you are beginning to fall asleep in the comfortable position).
