Guy filter: How do you get rid of an unwanted erection?

Every now and then I find myself with an erection in a public place. I don't mean just semi hard. I mean raging I'm 15 again and I can't control my hormones erection.
As I'm not a sports fan thinking about baseball, basketball, football or any of that does nothing for me. It's *ahem* hard to think about anything else.
When I was a teenager I learned that holding my breath does the trick pretty nicely. Forces me to concentrate on not letting go of my breath and, in my own mind at least, sends the blood to other places in my body that need it more.
My girlfriend hates it when I do this (hold my breath) though. She believes (wrongly IMHO) that holding my breath will affect our ability to have children later on.
Surely I'm not the only guy who this still happens to. What do other guys do to remedy this situation?
