I believe this is something women do more than men, but I have also observed that many males do it too. Well in the case of females sometimes it's justified, like when they wear short mini skirts...if they didn't cross their legs they'd expose themselves lol. I do it sometimes, but not all the time at all...after 3 minutes i find it uncomfortable and I uncross them hehe. Do you cross your legs when you sit down? why do you think that you do it?

I do it for some minutes too. But not bexause this is sexy or blabla, this is just some typical pose, need to change the position of the legs. Even it subconciously shows unsecurity.

Sometimes I cross my legs. Sometimes I uncross my legs as well. I do this for a change to make myself more comfortable.

yeah.. it's more natural for women to do it compared to men.. but then again, I know more than a few men who do it.. like cross their legs at the knees.. *shrugs* as for myself, i usually just cross my legs at the ankles.. not at the knees because they can get quite uncomfortable.. besides, i don't wear short mini skirts anyway. :)

I always cross my leg whether or not I am wearing mini skirt. I find sitting with my leg crossed comfortable and more feminine.

I always cross my legs, just habit I suppose, because I dont really even think about it. It just feels comfortable..Although I have not seen many males do it often.

Hi friend, some times i too cross my legs while sitting, i think this activity is not based on the gender. But we don't have the ability to sit in this sort for a long time as you mentioned.

I don't cross legs while i am sitting. Girls wearing minis do it for obvious reasons, as you said. Elder ladies or middle aged ladies do it just to look feminine. Have you ever seen a middle aged lady sitting on a chair without crossing her legs?? Man, she would look absolute masculine.. And boys do it when they feel uncomfortable, and the reason for that is the presence of wallet in the back pocket. The side containing the wallet would see that side's leg crossing on the other. This is a fact. Feel it the next time you sit down, and let me know...

I don't actually make a habit of crossing my legs when I sit down. One reason is that I seldom wear a skirt and prefers to wear slacks or jeans everyday. I also find it uncomfortable after a few minutes and has the tendency to make my leg feel numb.

Yes I usually do, When I was a child I was taught it was the "ladylike" way for girls to sit - and I guess I still do it.

i do cross my legs sometimes, too especially when i am just wearing skirts. and even when wearing pants, i do cross my legs when sitting down, too. there are times when i find it comfortable. but i have read that it's not good for our legs and feet actually. so, since then, i don't cross legs that much anymore.. anne

I often cross my legs man-style! (that's with my ankle resting on my other knee). I can't cross my legs tightly like women do, due to obvious obstructions! lol

I agree women like me cross legs especially when wearing minis and dresses. Aside from that, sitting that way makes me feel more comfortable and I reckon there's a touch of finesse when crossing my legs.
