In brief: Good question!
We all cross our knees, more or less.
It is likely in our genes somewhere. In the areas of manners, depends on how you cross your knees. For women, it can be seen as a "turn on". For men who openly cross their knees, interpretation is "see what i've got! if closed crossing for men, some think "gay".Medically speaking, can cause pain tingling numbness bc of prolonged pressure to the peroneal nerve.
