Sadly, the male body can sometimes be a pain.

As our wealth of penis-related information at Austin’s Project will often tell you, the male penis is an incredible organ.

Your “little guy” doesn’t care if you are currently presenting your report in a board meeting, standing inside a crowded elevator, posing for a wedding photo, or even on a date with your longtime crush.

He will rise with the force of the sun as sure as you wake up each morning.

All you can do is hope and plead to whatever you believe in that no one will notice your “hardship.” – pun intended.

Or you can do these effective methods to get rid of the erection altogether.

How an Erection Occurs in the First Place

An erection occurs when two tubular structures, called the corpora cavernosa, that run the length of the penis, become engorged with venous blood.

This may result from any of various physiological stimuli, also known as sexual stimulation and sexual arousal.

The corpus spongiosum is a single tubular structure located just below the corpora cavernosa, which contains the urethra, through which urine and semen pass during urination and ejaculation respectively.

This may also become slightly engorged with blood, but less so than the corpora cavernosa.

The scrotum may, but not always, become tightened during erection.

Generally, the foreskin automatically and gradually retracts, exposing the glans, though some men may have to manually retract their foreskin.

ED can also be associated with bicycling due to both neurological and vascular problems due to compression.

The increase risk appears to be about 1.7-fold.

The Most Surefire Way to Get Rid of an Erection

Since erections occur of sexual arousal, the best way to get rid of the erection is by decreasing your sexual arousal levels.


Think of something that is the opposite of “arousing”.

If the culprit behind your boner is your own naughty imagination, time to backpedal a little bit to reverse your situation.

Think of something that would really turn you off. It could be:

  • anything depressing or funny
  • a naked old lady
  • a horror movie
  • dying puppies
  • how you’re still single at 28.
  • gross food
  • anything gross smelling (maybe a nasty ex?)

Once you’ve lost yourself in these thoughts, your boner will easily deflate.

A External Way to Get Rid of Your Erection

This way is a little bit more challenging because it requires ice.

That’s right, you heard me right: ice.

Well – anything cold could work like a cold drink fresh from a cooler or refrigerator.

Hold the Cold Object Against Your Crotch

Most people don’t walk around with ice cubes or ice packs, so it could be tough to work this one.

Why does this even work?

Cold objects will constrict the blood flow to your Johnson, making it a lot less excited.

This is also known as “vasoconstriction”.

A really forceful way to make your erection go down:

In general, I do not recommend this method.

That’s because it’s a bit forceful and can cause some pain.

It involves none other than trying to pee with an erection.

Why does this work?

Well, your body naturally closes the pathway from the bladder to your urethra because of your hardened penis tissue.

That makes it impossible to pee with an erection.

Therefore, trying to pee with an erection signals to the body that it should remove the erection.

As the pee starts to come out (because the erection starts to go down) – there is some pain involved.

However, keep going and eventually it will be gone.

Like I said, it’s really painful to do it this way, but for some guys with really dynamic body reactions, it works really well.

If in Public, Try Hiding the Erection

Put your hands in your pockets.

Putting your hands in your pockets is a perfectly natural gesture, making this very popular. Put both of your hands in your pockets so as not to arouse suspicion, and gently hold the erection close to your body, trying not to move so as to tame your member into timidity

After that simply angle the erection to the side.

It will eventually go away, and you won’t have to worry about others noticing it while it does.

In Conclusion

While a rock-solid erection on is visually appealing when it’s time to do the nasty with your partner, creating that tripod down your trousers in normal, public situations could otherwise be awkward – especially if you’re in a real formal event like a a Church service.

Forget the stares and the looks of disgust.

Imagine if you get approached by some random guy with a bulge what would you do?

We can all cooperate and not put ourselves (and others) in these awkward situations by controlling our boners.
