Talk:bulge

Isn't the submarine example somewhat unphysical? I mean, usually, the (water) pressure outside the vessle is much greater than the 1 atm pressure of the air inside it. --81.227.64.142 12:29, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

"The outline of penis and testicles visible through clothing" - needs to be confirmed as a distinct sense somehow and not just a use of the general "bulge". Equinox 19:22, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

It's used in constructions like "his bulge", so I think it merits the separate sense. I don't have time to cite it though... Andrew Sheedy (talk) 01:08, 28 August 2017 (UTC)

    Give either of them a sailor in tight pants with a bulge showing and they'd go out of their fruit minds.

The cites given don't really justify such a specific definition IMO; there's nothing in any of those to suggest that both penis and testicles are involved. BigDom 09:43, 28 August 2017 (UTC)

I have made the definition less specific. RFV-resolved Kiwima (talk) 01:42, 17 October 2017 (UTC)
