Sorry if this is a repeat topic or anything, but it has been bugging me for a while. What is it with guys getting nose bleeds when they see something embarrassing or lewd?

Does that happen in real life? 'Cause if it does I've never experienced it, and I've seen plenty of embarrassing things. Any input on this matter would be appreciated =) and sorry if this is in the wrong Topic Category thingy

Well, it is a little known fact that Japanese boys suffer under high stress and blood pressure of dangerous levels. It doesn't help that they have a severe lack of interaction with girls, so when they encounter a so called "ecchi" moment with a girl, or several, it is only natural that they end up like a fountain of bloody youth.

I have always wondered about the nose bleed thing myself...I have only had 3 nose bleeds in my life, and I can guarentee that none were from experiencing anything lewd or embarrassing. Well the nose bleed was embarrassing, but I digress.
I am figuring the nose bleeds are used as a visual cue - so now everytime you see it in an anime/manga, you pretty much know that something ecchi this way comes (lol).

It's an old visual gag. Sexual frustration.

It's meant to show when a guy has seen something he likes a lot, or heard something really naughty (like a girl literally asking for you-know-what) it's to express that they are turned on. So the reply about sexual frustration was spot on (though there IS more to it, I'll let you put 2 and 2 together on that one)

Really? It pretty much means they got off on what they saw, instead of showing it in the literal sense they had to come up with a more subtle way, hence the nose bleed. Ever wonder why girls called a guy a perv for getting a simple nose bleed. Ever when it was a legitimate one from being hit? If so, then that is why.

I'm a bit sick of it myself since I feel its been overused to the point of becoming a cliche. That said, I sometimes find funny when it is either done subtly, overdone as parody, or it is a woman nose bleeding.
