    I don't ask a lot of questions, but I had to ask. I've been really stressed at work with holiday sales and an important presentation coming up that would have effected everyone's possible raises and the such. I'm in the middle of planning a holiday party at the house, practicing for a local league match and dealing with my roommates. I didn't exactly have time to "relieve" stress. So after about 3-4 four weeks of this I wake up to my testicles throbbing. They were extremely tight. I seriously couldn't walk and had to spend thirty minutes massaging them before starting my day. I've since taken care of the problem and haven't had a repeat situation, but is this the legendary BLUE BALLS?

    You got it man. Sucks doesn't it? If you're not getting as much pussy as you usually do, you've got to jerk off a little more often and you won't have that problem. Enjoy the workout!

    Blue balls are horrible! And they are not an urban myth. I have only had them when deprived of sex when discovered unexpectedly and it was decorous to be decent and stop. But blue balls surely followed. Very painful and unpleasant. Do take note to take care and relieve the pressure as soon as possible.

    How long does it normally take for this to develop for a guy ?

    It has only ever happened to me once - when I went for ten days without jo

    I'm still doubtful that blue balls exist, I think they're just a ploy to get us to drop our knickers.

    What's the science behind blue balls then, cum builds up and cuts the blood supply off so some generous and charitable female has to climb on you before your balls explode?

    well I guess that might be one way to relieve the pressure :wink:

    but really I don't think its a blood circulation thing but rather that the 'motility' of all the the sperm is like a million hyperactive ball bearings jostling around and causing bruising ... :eek:

    It's been medically proven that sperm and ball bearings are different :)

    To the best of my knowledge/experience, "blue balls" are most often caused by sessions of prolonged arousal and teasing without release. Personally, I've never experienced this from prolonged abstinence; I'd imaging jacking off 1x per week would be enough to prevent this.

    Arousal causes increased blood flow to both the prostate and testes. Also, the prostate swells with secretions. This swelling presses on the blood vessels in the area causing sluggish flow and pain from both the pressure and reduced oxygen.

    Sexual release helps relieve the pain, obviously. But, a warm bath will do the same by opening up blood vessels and relieving congestion.

    You lasted 3-4 weeks before you resolved it? I could never, and would never, be able to last that long.

    Thanks for all the replies. I'll be sure to never let that happen again. And yes Yhtang, 3-4 weeks. I don't suggest it. I do believe I may have caused permanent damage.

    good post robique, never heard of blue balls until now. i saw a tv programme yesterday about some guys who tried not to masturbate or have sex for as long as possible (this was at 11.30 a.m.!). One guy lasted nearly a month and said his balls were seriously swollen and beginning to hurt - guess it's the same thing. kudos on lasting so long though, I couldnt do it. I went over a week and had to relieve my self in the office toilets!

    I only had it once....I was with a really hot guy...I got him off but not me....after laying with him all night I had blue balls... ouch! I didn't pursue it much because he was "straight" and just needed to get off for the night. Once alone and I could jack off I was okay.

    Oh yes, blue balls does exist. It's caused, as pointed out, by congestion of the various male organs including the testes, seminal vesicles, and prostate. During male arousal, as you've doubtless witnessed, blood flow is increased to the genital area not only to effect erection but to get the other organs working full-time. Sperm is taken up from the epididymus via the vas deferens (which loops from the testes, over the bladder, around it, and down into the seminal vesicles). The prostate and seminal vesicles secrete some elements of semen as well. The increased blood flow stimulates all these organs to begin working very hard to prepare for ejaculation. Ordinarily the seminal vesicles collect all the elements of semen as they arrive from the different organs. All the fluids collect there and wait to be released. Pressure from the increased blood flow causes vasocongestion as within the penis itself. At the plateau stage of sexual arousal, the testes become highly congested, swelling to up to twice their ordinary size!

    At ejaculation all these fluids are released, which releases the pressure, but so are hormones like prolactin which cause the vascular system to open the valves and resume normal blood flow. Without this release of hormones, vascular congestion diminishes gradually, not rapidly, and depending on the level of arousal, this can result in painful aching from prolonged vasocongestion. While the blood itself drains back into the circulatory system, all those seminal fluids which have collected in the seminal vesicles have no where to go except to either slowly drain into the bladder (causing cloudy urine) or remain in the vesicles (causing a bit of a drip sometimes).

    Blue balls aren't fatal and can be relieved with vasodilators like aspirin. Antihistamines can help with drainage of the other organs too. Masturbation to ejaculation, of course, is the most immediate and effective way to relieve blue balls.
