Re: Erection stands against body
The penis differs from man to man, and sometimes they stick out, sometimes they point up, sometimes they go sideways with a bend upwards in them!
Generally the more virile and hard the erection the more they normally point up, then as time goes on they don't point up as much any more! As you say you can move it down so it points more outward, but it will go back to pointing up. This is due to good and healthy ligaments that make it do this, it is quite normal and will not prevent many positions of intercourse, except maybe for ones that might force the penis to bend - you will find what you like doing and avoid the others.
Good luck and enjoy it!
