Gentlemen (ladies, turn back now...),
I've come back to WSO for your advice on a serious, and what I presume to be a common issue.
First, a bit of background. I've recently joined a PE shop as an associate, and there are significantly more chicks here relative to my old banking group. At my old group, we had a few chicks and TBH they were total non-targets on the babe scale. The senoritas at my current shop are significantly more attractive. One in particular - we'll give her the alias of "Rachel" - is an absolute dime. Blonde hair, blue eyes, bulging brackets, smells like strawberries... just to give you a sense of what I'm dealing with here. Well, Rachel happens to sit across from me, and often times we lock eyes. Whenever this happens, I think about indescribable things and, well... pop goes the weasel. The thing is, once the hound is loose I often find myself having to attend meetings or visit the office of one of the seniors, and this can be a very embarrassing time for obvious reasons. Additionally, Rachel has come to notice on a few occasions and now she seems to look at me with disgust. Clearly, things aren't going to work out between us (but a few shots of Goose (that's Geese) at the holiday party could change this).
Anyway, for those of you who can't relate to this issue in a professional environment, just think back to middle school. Remember when you knew you had to go up to the front of the class for a presentation or had to stand for the national anthem? And it just so happens that the devil is summoned? Yeah, very embarrassing and clearly not an ideal situation.
This brings me to what I've come to the community for today - I need to know how you guys do it. How do you conceal your man sword when at work, or at least adjust discretely? Any suggestions would be sincerely appreciated - my career depends on it.
