View Full Version : Unsheathing, or, 'letting the lipstick hang out'

I read in another post that after a male is neutered he doesn't unsheath. Is this true?

Sarge is 14 months(my rescue baby) and is going in for a neuter this Friday. He seems to like to let the ole' lipstick hang out, and I was wondering if he will still do this after the neuter. Anyone?

He will more than likely still do that after he is neutered.

Sorry don't think that's true ... Gunner if sitting just right, still let's it all hang out! :P

Nope, they still show it off! LOL Bacchus was neutered at approx. 12 months, is now 3 years, and it still pops out now and then. I just tell him "Put that thing away, you can't use it anymore!" LOL :P

My two younger kids 8/girl & 11/boy are not bothered at all by this but my 18 yr old girl is absolutely grossed out. Every time she goes to pet him she makes sure it is put away and if it starts to peak out she is so gone. Cracks me up every time.

That's what I thought I'd hear. Oh, well, maybe I could train him with a voice command...how bout 'Sarge, retreat!' :P

Trust me, neutering will not stop this; and as they age, they seem to be even more "relaxed." You know, it might be alarming to some, but after a while you don't even notice or care anymore (they're just your babies.)

Vader is going on 5 months, going to be neutered soon but he doesn't ever have "it" out! Is he normal, lol?????? :-)

Maybe just fortunate, I guess!

Just the other day, he started unsheathing as I was putting his collar on (he was in the sit position). OMG! He was definitely a 'happy camper'!!!

Man, this is one reason why we got a female }>

Anne, I hear you!! If I'd had my preference, I would probably have gone with a female, but I adopted Sarge, not purchased him. But I still love my sweetie pie...even with the occasional 'distraction'!!

A while back I was at a show, and me and a friend were watching the Danes, who were about to enter the ring. My friend, when looking at the female Danes and noting their 'noonies' (not exactly technical!), said she'd prefer a male, because they look much cleaner. I then told her, 'but you don't have to look at 'bits and pieces' on a female!

Well my male, has nipples too, if that is what your friend was reffering to.

Yup that's it! Perhaps the Danes she noted had kind of large nipples.

Wesker is neutered and his still peeks out. Especially after the "go for a ride" talk. To make matters worse, Chasey is fascinated with the darn thing. She pokes her head under there and looks and sniffs. I think she wants one for herself. :P

LOL Great Danes are nothing. I have a gelding horse that let's that python hang out. Trust me a lipstick is better AND the fact that you don't have to physically clean it, like you do a horse makes me love my Dane even more! Ahhhh the joys of pet ownership!

Ewwww! I guess there is a positive side to everything!

BTW...why in the world do you have to clean it???

Couple of reasons...When a horse urinates there are particles of dirt, sand etc from eating the grass flowing with the urine. It builds up and becomes like a hard bean...inside. Eventually it's uncomfortable to pee...so you have to "go in" and clean it periodically so it doesn't build up. Also the inside just needs to be cleaned when it hangs out. Prevents problems down the road. After you'd done it a few times it doesn't even "register" that it's gross. You just do it because you have to. Now aren't you glad you don't have a horse too? :P

That's why I pay the vet to do my two geldings! My thoroughbred always gets this look of shear disgust/mortification...I think it's the same look I give my Dr. when they want to look at my 'bits'

I have to giggle at everyones terminology, people always make fun of me (Fire Hall, vet clinic, ect) because I refer to male and female genitalia as 'bits'....it's nice to see I'm not the only one!

Eeeeewwww....that's it. I'm NEVER getting a horse. I mean ICK. There are some things that a person just shouldn't have to do for their animals. :-)

LMAO. I guess I haven't found out what I won't do yet, if it means I'll save a few bucks. :P

Nicole, I just had to smile to myself when I read your message....Fern (my little blue girl) is just the same with Bailey(my black boy), infact Fern sits back and just stares at 'it' then she will have a close look, have a sniff, and if that isn't enough, she hits it with her paw.....maybe she thinks it is a sort of toy???? Bailey just looks at me with such an embarrasing look, and as if to say..please stop her Mum...poor Bailey.
Bailey was terrible when he was young..always with his 'lipstick out' however since he has been nuetered the problem seems to have got a lot better....only when he has a wash does 'it all hang out'...and then only sometimes. Personally myself I think that since he has reached adulthood, he has more control over his bits...like a puppy getting control over his bladder and bowels....what do you think?

I guess I lucked out on the outcome of this. Sarge never unsheathes anymore..or if he does I'm not noticing it, which would be pretty difficult to do!

An additional, if unexpected side benefit to the whole neuter process I guess!
