By a boner, I am assuing you mean an erection? When a guy gets turned on, his penis becomes hard and stiff. You can see it kinda stick out thru his pants. Hope I helped.

Well, generally, if you're naked it's not hard to miss. The penis will be harder, longer, and usually angles upward. If you're clothed (or rather, he's clothed), it's harder to tell. Sometimes you can feel it or see it through his pants, but, you can never be 100% sure unless he's wearing tight pants (or tights, or spandex, or something of that nature).
