    I just had a conversation with my girl roommate. We were on the topic of blue balls. She told me that she has given guys blue balls sometimes. She said they claimed that receiving blue balls hurt them physically. This claim confused me since I don't see how it could be physically painful. I would understand it being mentally and emotionally painful and frustrating but not actually being physically painful.

    So have any of you ever had blue balls that hurt? Is it more mentally, emotionally, or physically painful to you guys?

    The whole "blue balls" thing was invented by straight men to make their lovers feel bad if they got cold feet and didn't want to continue doing whatever they were doing (since a guy could not trick another guy into thinking that his balls would hurt if they didn't finish). "Oh baby if you don't finish me off I'll be blue balls and that really hurts," which is a crock (as all guys know, if you suddenly stop jerking off you do not go into fits of uncontrollable pain). The fact that this old wive's tale is still so prevalent boggles my mind. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Nope it's true. I have had blue balls before. Getting worked up so much. Not by a girl ick but by guys. And actually the act of getting off and that release almost hurts.

    It's a dull, primal ache. Not agonizing but it sure isn't fun.

    Yes, an ache felt in your balls, and I've had it myself. Some medical experts claim the condition doesn't exist, but in this case I dispute them.

    Blue balls usually follows a period of high sexual arousal, that does not immediately culminate in ejaculation. My theory is that various normal fluids in the male reproductive system are produced too quickly, and in such abundance without quick release, that localized swelling and pain occurs. I suspect the main area of congestion is the vas deferens, with the pain radiating to be felt in the testes.

    These fluids are produced in various sites, to nourish and convey sperm cells. And younger men are known to produce seminal fluids in greater quantity than older men, and to be more easily aroused, in response to their higher hormonal levels. Hence it tends to be a young man's condition, seen much less often in older males.

    And when I got blue balls, from too much foreplay that didn't conclude with sex, jerking off back home didn't immediately help, which masks the cause-and-effect of this. I presume the pain from the distention of the tissues doesn't go away in an instant, but lingers like many injuries do, even after the cause is removed.

    Plus perhaps the congestion itself was still not totally relieved, it taking some hours for the entire reproductive tract to "equalize." The semen we ejaculate is expelled mostly from the prostate, not from our testes or the vas deferens, so a fluid surplus at those sites would not necessarily be instantly reduced by an orgasm.

    Yeah, it's definitely there, and it hurts. It can be experienced after edging for a very long time but not finishing - try it yourself.

    Haha, that always happens to me. Thinking about it makes me cringe.

    What's wrong with youicon_question.gif
    Blue balls hurt quite a bit!
    It's like getting a charlie horse in your testicles.
    (If I had to guess I would guess that's exactly what it is -- a cramp/knot in whatever muscles normally retract the testicles as happens when you're arroused -- presumably due to being in use for a much longer period of time than is normal.)
    Have you never had them? I've gotten them a couple of times when up all night with some girl fooling around, but never having sex. Would often hit sometime in the early morning (not having gone to sleep, just hung out in bed all night icon_smile.gif ).

    I get them if I don't clean my pipes regularly. But it's not agonizingly painful. Just a dull ache that screams RELEASE!!! NOWWWW!!!!!

    They exist. They hurt. It's not a myth. It takes quite a lot of excitement and time to induce though.

    I doubt it involves muscles. As I wrote above, I think it's an excess fluid build-up, perhaps analogous to the pain from a blocked head sinus.

    We've got several glands down there, that like the salivary glands in our mouth, produce fluid. That is intended to sustain and transport sperm when we ejaculate. Except, these fluids have no continuous outlet like our mouth, and are stored there until we ejaculate them.

    They're produced in greatest quantity when we're aroused, and if not immediately released, they're stuck there. If too much of them, they distend the vessels holding them, causing pain. Really not unlike having a full bladder.

    Agree!!! Back in my str8 "courting" days, before the "turn of the century" had them alot. Always after a real prolonged making out session with a "nice girl" who usually said "no" and u went along with it. Then went home with real "sore' balls!!!

    Well there you are. Exactly how it happened to me the first time. I was making out with a girl in a college dorm lounge late at night (she later became my first wife), laid out on a sofa and feeling each other up. We couldn't do anything more than that there, even at that late hour, a few students still passing by.

    I was 27, first time I had dated in my life, had never experienced someone else's hand on my dick. Talk about late bloomer! And she was a tom-boy, more boy than girl, a motorcyclist like me. I didn't understand what I was subconsciously doing, making her my surrogate for the male lover I really wanted.

    In any case, it was a hot experience at the time. I rode my BMW motorcycle home with the most painful balls since the last time I was kicked down there, shifting myself on the saddle to no benefit, not understanding the problem. Jerking off in bed didn't help, either, despite it being a massive load, but another wank in the morning started to give me some relief. That's when I began to wonder what blue balls are really all about.

    Yea, it's real. I remember from my straight days, for sure. Not so much since then but if you Google it, you'll be linked to a Wiki definition which refers to vasocongestion, etc. It's a condition, not an old wives tail.

    Haven't had them for years now but used to quite often when I was young. Sort of like the residual throbbing a few hours after being kicked in the nuts.

    Except, despite all these personal testimonials, many urologists will tell you that blue balls is a myth. They were taught that in medical school, that it's just psychological, and that straight guys falsely plead the pain as a way to persuade girls to have sex with them.

    It really makes you wonder how many other falsehoods our physicians are taught and operate under. One reason I always double-check for myself everything my doctor tells me.
