Sweating Towel Guy

I frequently see a reaction image on 4chan of a nervous looking man patting himself with a towel that’s drawn in the style of old safety instruction pamphlet. It’s not always clear to me what emotion is supposed to be portrayed but there are numerous derivatives of the image including DarkSouls characters, blood instead of sweat, and the guy having multiple arms with towels. When I did a Google image search it seems like the original image may have come from an article about excessive sweating. Anyone else familiar with this one?

The way I’ve seen it used is always as a reaction to some risque or erotic situation, as in the man is sweating from arousal and trying to hide it.

I’ve definitely seen it frequently, though I don’t know the origin.
