Is it normal for a guy to tuck his penis when sitting down?

So sometimes I’ll go to touch my boyfriend’s penis to initiate Arousal and he’ll say “I’m sitting on it, I tucked it”. The first couple of times I didn’t pay it any kind but it’s now seeming to be more of a habit for him. I’ve never heard of a guy tucking their penis outside of a homosexual man. I don’t think he’s gay because of it it’s just a little different for me. Has anyone heard of this?? (Men) do you do this or know the reasoning behind it?

Sorry I know this is a old question and lives may have changed already, but I'd thought it may help you or others reading to have a honest male answer.
So headline point is I would guess 2 likely reasons....either he is trying to make his penis longer or he is toying with the idea of being trans/gay or at least ha an interest in it.
So now to the detail of why I can guess those reasons.......basically from what I know and have seen of tucking, it pulls back the penis and stretches it out longer than normal and keeps it in this state (imagine a elastic band and then having that band stretched constantly). Now there is a good theory that constant tucking would mean the penis gets used to being stretched and overtime accommodates and grows longer.....where does that theory come from and how is it evidenced?...Transsexual or shemale men that do everything to speak and look like a woman except surgery to remove the penis.
Many people who comment on trans pornography often say things like "wow big penis" and "why do most trannys seem to have bigger penis than straight guys" and also things like "why do alot of trannys have curved/bent penis"....the answer to both those common observations and comments can be many reasons but one of them is certainly the constant tucking which being a trans man would bring.....they will always be tucking while wearing clothes outside and of course as they sit in public. You can imagine the stress the penis would go under eachday and the funny directions it would go into as you move or sit etc......it's easy to see how it can develop in length and also get a bend.
Tranny porn is aimed at people being attracted by the fake female bits like face and breasts and bottom but also with an alluring penis, so most tranny pornstars need to have a big penis. (btw a trick to notice if a penis has been lengthed is the colour, as more blood stress will make it darker or patchy and also if it has long or prominent visible veins which is a bit like when you see those bodybuilders with veins everywhere)
So after reading your question and the other answers here, I would say you are right to wonder why and perhaps ask more details which can be backed up.....yes you shouldn't jump to conclusions and this may open a can of worms as the saying goes, but you have the right to know and make your mind up about if you want to accept someone like this/help them - whatever the case may be.
The answer that he used to do this to stop others seeing an erection is a bit ominous.....yes it sort of sounds like a possibility as a teen but unlikely, and he's not a teen anymore is he and nobody would tuck while sitting out of habit. All trans men would rather not have that bother of tucking or uncomfort that comes from it.
Now is this all crazy words if he is indeed a straight man? No not crazy as many men who are straight will still view and enjoy tranny porn.
Is it crazy words if he indeed has a normal or even bigger than normal penis? No not crazy, because men addicted to porn can easily get hooked on being bigger and it doesn't matter if they know they have a good size penis or if girls are satisfied with it, they want to be bigger for themselves. They also are unlikely to like to admit to someone that they are trying to make their penis bigger.

I'm answering this as a straight alpha man who has sadly seen alot of pornography, and spoken/shared with others about this. I've also played football (soccer) most of my life and been around naked men in changing rooms, and men of the pornography mentality.
In short it is definitely not normal to be tucking, and again I'd think about whether you want to either accept living with a person like this, help this person improve themselves, or not live with them at all.

Everything I've suggested may turn out to be incorrect or not fully correct in your situation but at least some of it is likely and will be true for others in a similar situation.

The part where you say that sometimes you go to touch your boyfriend's penis "to initiate arousal" -- maybe he wants to get an erection with his own timing as erotic events unfold between you, instead of having you cause him to get one.

Eh, it's just his preference.  I think this is a good opportunity for an interesting conversation.  Ask him what? When it started?  What prompts his continuing to do it?  See how he answers.  I mean, maybe his mom made him do it when he was little.  And it's a habit now.  So, chat him up about it.  Could be a good time to get to know each other even better!

We talked about why he does it in the morning which was because of his female family members in the home and he would wake up with an erection but to continuously sit on your penis is something I’ve never heard of. Why would a man want to sit on his penis or have it tucked?
Well, he told you one reason why.  He was shamed when younger for morning wood and started to do it then.  Now it's a habit.  Try not to over analyze it.
I’m trying not to over analyze it, but I don’t see a relation between tucking an erection in the morning to constantly tucking your penis. I’m sure no man has an erection every time it calls for them to be seated. I just don’t see how morning wood projected into a constant habit of tucking it
Sounds just like a habit and not anything to really worry about.  If he tucked as a kid, he tucks now.  Habits develop.  Not a big deal.  This seems like a big deal to you or like it is bothering you.  And if you have concerns about his doing it, talk to him about it.  I don't think it is a big deal and he's not the only guy who does it.  A little weird?  maybe. But we all have our quirks.  There's really no magic insight anyone can give you as every human being is different with different experiences.  So, you need to work on communicating with him or letting this go if it bugs you.  
I don't think this means anything. What makes a man gay is if he is attracted to and prefers to have sex with men and not women. It has nothing to do with how he handles his penis. Gay men aren't ashamed of their penises or anything, or tuck it as a rule.  

And tucking erections doesn't have anything to do with drag queens, or anything else you might be thinking. Drag queens aren't even all gay.

He shared something really personal with you. He was shamed about his penis as a child. Don't shame him as an adult. Just let him be. It doesn't matter if you see a relation to it or not. It's just what he does. Just love him for who he is, or be kind enough to let him go.
I’m very aware with what defines a gay man which is why I SPECIFICALLY ruled out that mentality as explained in my first response. I explained that the only reason that I PERSONALLY know of a man tucking their penis being more common was with gay men (this is also not stating that ALL gay men do this either).  No one is shaming him. Being curious and shameful are two different things. I asked and preferred a males response to see if it was a more common act. And never was he ever ashamed of his penis. I’m sure no teen boy would feel comfortable walking through the halls of his family home with his mother and sister present with an erection, its more of a respect move because he proudly unveils his erection with me. I’ll take GuitarRox’s advice and not look too much into it and have better communication in my relationship. Thanks but no thanks for jumping to various conclusions
