Resolved Question

Hands between own legs

Refer to my recent postings about the reliability of body language. I have noticed a peculiarity in several women, especially 2 I deal with often. . They often sit with one hand resting on an inner thigh, near ,or even touching their genitals. Both are quite relaxed in nature and often also sit crosslegged “pens en pooitjies” on chairs and tables. Both are almost 40. One also sometimes sits, when her feet are on the floor, with her legs intertwined like a koeksister, but a hand is often ‘down there “. I would thought this may be an ultimate form of unconscious (or maybe conscious) “protectionism”, legs slightly clenched to allow nothing in there, and protecting the most important part with a hand. There are however no other circumstances that can cause such behaviour, and it is also not a matter of being cold. People feeling cold try to minimize their body surface, but this one does this all through the year.

Bull, it is not always reactive, sometimes I observe it when in a group. True, sometimes women goes sitting like that after I had been with them for a while. I am exactly 6ft tall, with a slight middle age spread and of medium bone structure. I do not think I act domineering or gawk too much. Oh, and are teenage girls not part of the thing "you can look at the menu, but don't eat"? Thanks for the other answers so far.

She had once (when in her twenties) been advised by an older woman to sit “lady like”, when she was sitting cross legged. To which she reacted by doing it in an exaggerated way and immediately opening her legs again. The experts describe a similar form of leg-crossing as having the purpose of showing off muscle tone. She may just be taking it to a larger extreme by being very supple. The other one usually sits with her legs slightly apart with the hand between her thighs. This latter one is also sexually quite liberal, the koeksister one just balanced, and her “provocative”behaviour to the older woman was uncommon.

Glamour models sometimes deliberate point towards their nether regions, by hooking their fingers into their bikini bottoms or having a hand near that region (legs or tummy, it does not matter). The purpose is for sure to create sex appeal by drawing attention to the genitals even if covered. So what would your answer be about these non-modelling and fully clothed women with their hands near their genitals: A. it shows sexual exhibition. B. it shows some sexual self –consciousness and protectionism. C. A mixture of A and B. D. It means nothing.

Okey! Another interesting fact is that we're all different in many ways. Everyone does not use the exact same body language for the exact same reasons.

What you are describing, is how I keep my hands warm in winter...and I have done it since I was a child. Believe me it is not at all a sexual thing, just warming our hands.

My first thought was trying to keep warm, but further reading of your question makes me wonder... dunno, maybe it is just a comfort thing..

B

I would also go for B. Also when you sit with your legs intertwined, there isnt many places you cn actually put your hands and putting it on your inner thigh actually helps a bit with the balance....maybe it is not a physhological thing, but more just physical. I actually did the same thing with both 'positions' when I was younger.....now I am too old and fat to sit like that....

BL, is it not a matter of coming over intimidating / domineering / overbearing? I am 6ft and several inches, with a huge bone structure and fat. When I was working for a corporation I have been told that my habit of walking very fast into people's offices - of any sex - create such a sense. Also don't you stare at the women as well - since you say not even the poor teenage girls escape your prying eyes, hehe. A mixture of a domineering and a sexual attitude may very well create a self-protecting response.

Let's look at it from a different perspective view: Non of the above - but also it DOES mean something. Psychological we must decide between "hurt as a child", and "size" does matters! Maybe the person had a pedophile history, by a parent - although domination can plays a big role. The other factor is uneasiness with your "size". Not every woman knows the "size" formula of a man's private parts, but many do. Unconsciously many people do similar movements when threatened. Even I do it in the presence of large woman (not fat), and I'm only sections-by-sections and not sexy.
