When it comes to certain behaviors, it's a gender thing.

Our different anatomy makes men specifically do things–like adjust their crotch area in public or just give up altogether and spread their legs while sitting on a subway train to make themselves comfortable.

But it's not just about moving a stuck testicle.

There are other peculiarities exclusively associated with men.

Curious to find out more about what else men typically do, Redditor Sythanytx asked:

"Guys of Reddit, what is one thing that all guys do?"

Here's some behind the scenes examples of what guys do concerning what's between their legs.

Adjusting Period

"Pretending to put our hands in our pocket when actually we're actually trying to untangle our underwear."

– 0MrSoap0

Hands-Free Method

"The side step to unstick your junk from your thigh."

– decorativesofapillow

Here's what happens in the men's room.

Respecting Boundaries

"Give each other space at the urinals. 9 times out of 10, the only time you will see 2 guys using directly adjacent urinals is when there's no other choice. Otherwise, the rule is every other urinal, and we're pretty good at it."

– callingallcomas

Focus On The Task At Hand

"The stare blankly at the wall when peeing at a urinals."

"Looking to the side is punishable by death."

– barronelli

These behaviors occur before accomplishing a task.

Sound Check

"Pressing the trigger on your drill a couple of times as soon as you pick it up."

– bisquickvic

The Pat-Down

"What my brother calls the 'guy check.'"

"We slap our pockets to make sure we have our wallet, keys, and phone."

– yamo25000

Maybe it's a guy thing.

Clearing The Path

"Kick rocks off of the sidewalk or down the street."

– blueduck9696

A Boulder Move

"enjoy dropping big rocks into water etc."

– Wetvv

Hear Him Roar

"One time I was in a walking path that crosses over a lake. Two little boys were running to the shore and back up to toss in rocks. I walked down to the shore picked up a bowling size rock and threw it off the bridge for them. I was a god in their little eyes. Lol."

– 10_Virtues

Selective Knowledge

"I have no idea wtf is going on in most of my friends personal lives... Known them for years."

– KingYondu

How Presumptuous

"Critically think if the next woman that talks to us is flirting with us or is trying to be a friend.... usually we fail anyways."

– Hack3rsD0ma1n

Here's a twist, if you will.

It's no secret men have an advantage with peeing while standing.

But here's my personal secret, and it's not something all men do.

At home, I pee sitting down. It's for a sanitary reason. I don't want to make a splash and have micro droplets accumulating on the bathroom floor, because, gross.

I wish my husband felt the same; but, I can't complain.

He always puts the seat back down for me when he's emptied out.

Sometimes we need a night out or to take a break from our cooking, and it's nice to go to a restaurant.

But from bad food to even worse service, there are details about the dining experience that can ruin the whole night out.

Most people love a good burger, and many, many American restaurants serve them, but not all burgers are created equal.

Super tall burgers that are hard to eat, way too much sauce (or only a tiny bit of sauce on the middle of the bun), soggy lettuce — there are lots of ways to ruin a burger.

We've all had experiences which left us sad or despondent.

A friend moving away, the loss of a pet, missing out on a promotion.

While these experiences often result in our feeling the need to drown out our feelings in some capacity, we know deep down that we'll eventually bounce back.

Some experiences, however, take a bit longer to recover from, if we manage to recover from them at all.

The sort of experiences which, for lack of a better term, break us.

Flirting is always a delicate balance.

While an obvious way to get someone's attention, and let them know they find them attractive and (hopefully), are interested in dating them, it's not always appreciated.

As some people find flirting to be little more than thinly veiled sexual harassment, particularly when intentions are less than honorable.

Flirting is an even more dangerous game when in the office.

While some people flirt with colleagues for little more than harmless fun, others take flirting in the workspace much more seriously.

Whether they're the ones doing the flirting, or the ones being flirted to.
