    Well my question is does anyone have only one testicle or have a close relationship with someone who does? I can\\\'t believe I\\\'m even telling this, but I trust you guys to give me the honest scoop. I was born with one undesended testicle and it was removed as a toddler. I\\\'ve lived my entire life uno and it has been my \\\"life changing event\\\". I\\\'ve herd stories of some guys who tell eveybody and it\\\'s just the big joke, but I\\\'ve never told anyone except my wife. Some old girlfriends obviously probably figured it out, but they never said anything. I always felt like a circus freak, the \\\"odd ball\\\", LOL, so I didn\\\'t participate in sports, didn\\\'t screw around in high school because I was afraid I would get outed by a blabbermouth girl, and I avoided getting naked around most guys. At least in college, I found out I was way above average in penis size, so nobody noticed my shortcoming because my meat hung down and hid it. Needless to say I have more self esteem now, knowing Im bigger than my friends, but I\\\'ve never once told a friend I\\\'m mono..... SO YOU ALL ARE THE FIRST TO KNOW....
    My question is if you have delt with this, how do you handle it. I can\\\'t become the laughing stock of my friends. I would rather keep my secret to myself...
    I\\\'ve thought about getting a prosthetic one when I get a vasectomy (if I\\\'m going to get cut on anyway). How do I explain this to my kids? and hope they don\\\'t tell anyone.... Maybe some secrets are best kept secrets... What\\\'s your opinion? Anyone know of a support group for this?

    Should the kids ask, I doubt they will the explanation is redundancy(sp?) and since they are in your life something went right.

    While primary in our mind, appearnce is secondary, adequate sperm production is why we hav'em. If for appearance maybe they would be hung from our earlobes.??

    You want balance?? Get a prosthetic.

    NEVER be ashamed.

    Yes.
    I know a guy who was on the small side, had a motorcycle accident and lost
    function of one of the twins. The other overcompensated and now he suffers your size condition.

    "How do you handle it ?"
    He ignores it.
    No prosthetic, doesn't mind telling if appropriate, told his kids.

    I don't know of a support group, nor is one necessary in his case.

    Yup my brother had exactly the same problem as you but didn't get it fixed till he was in his teens. We've never discussed it but he's never been shy about stripping with other guys and he's done all the things straight guys are expected to do (marriage, kids, cheating on his spouse(s). He's in his sixties now.

    Prosthetics were not an option in his youth I guess. I'll have to ask him if he ever thought about it

    As I recall. Alexander the Great's father, Phillip, had only one. (War injury I think.) Anyway, he bragged he could do more with one than most men could with two. If a prosthetic would make you more comfortable, go for it. I really doubt your kids would be anything but supportive if they ever found out. I had an uncle who was castrated to control epilepsy. When I learned about it, my two reactions were unvoiced compassion (since I learned from my mother, not him) and extreme anger at the barbarity of the medical community that perpetrated the travesty. (The treatment didn't help the epilepsy...dilantin did years later.)

    Not sure if this is of any help but Lance Armstrong only has one. Doesn't seem to slow him down much at all.

    I have a friend who had one testicle that never decended. I was in the army with him a couple of years and there was never any difference in him and other guys with the normal two. He later married and has a couple of children.

    My son had testicular cancer and one had to be removed. He chose not to have the prosthetic because he wasn't particular about having only one in his sack. I've never known of anyone more active than him and he comparies himself to Lance Armstrong, if I caution him about overdoing.

    Sure, it's easy for me to say "don't let it phase you", but it's next to impossible to put myself in your shoes and know exactly how I would feel. Just the act of telling us about it could help you accept it, Str8Man. Good luck.

    Hey guys;

    Just had to put in my 2cents worth. I have one good testicle and one damaged.
    but Dr has told me to leave it alone. I have never been tested for sperm count. As I am single and have no kids. so your guess is as good as mine I will be 74 in July . So doubt it matters.

    My dad had only one testicle. He mentioned once and my Mom mentioned it once. Never really thoight of it much. By comparison, one of my HS girlfriends had a father with only one leg. Seemed to slow him up a lot more than my Dad's problem. There are certainly worse problems to have.

    Problem with having a prosthetic device inserted when you have a vasectomy is you're talking about incisions made on two different areas of your body. For a vasectomy they make a small incision in your ball sack. For the prosthetic testicle the make the incision in your lower abdomen. I have personally scrubed and observed both proceedures.

    One of my best friends from college days is monotesticular.
    He only got the courage to tell me this a few months ago...and we've
    known eachother for almost twenty years now.

    He said, "remember the time i told you i was having my tonsils out?
    I was really having a prosthetic put in".
    I want to see it of course, but he wont let me.
    I can understand....it isnt "show and tell" time but....i'm curious.

    Once inserted they look and feel like the real thing.

    I was going to say why add a nut if the one you've still got is working for you.
    Then I asked myself what I would do.

    I'd get the other nut replaced.

    WHY??

    Because my wife (when she's well enough to engage) gets great pleasure from feeling my heavy nuts slap against her ass when we fuck.

    That slapping noise really gets her turned on.

    That's it.

    I assume you could even get a really heavy one too if you wanted to. :D

    But that's just what I would do.
    I certainly would never think twice if a friend told me he had one nut.
    Everyone has his or her own peculiarities. That's what makes us unique.

    Thanks for the imput guys. I feel "different" just being able to talk about it. I feel like I need to be "normal", so I guess I'll look into it. I'll let you guys know what happens. Maybe do before and after pics. That would be a weird thing, and some of you would like it... LOL.

    You guys are great. Thanks again for taking the time to respond. Hope I can help you out sometime.

    Oh yeah I&#39;d get it replaced. I like my balls. I like feeling them hanging down after a hot shower or on a warm day. I like the slapping during sex too. Balls are balls and I often thought about what I would do if I lost one. I like the feeling of being complete and besides, I&#39;d pick the biggest one in the display case. More the merrier&#33;

    Look at it this way, if you don&#39;t like it you can always get it taken out. So why not go for it?

    Well, although it (the prosthetic testicle) looked real enough and perhaps to other people felt like the legitimate original, to me it always felt strange and unconfortable which is why after a time I had it removed. Of course part of what happened with me may have been that I did not have the replacement put in immediately. Let&#39;s face it, my concerns at the time were:A)Getting another drink (or getting the bar moved into the hospital) and B)Learning how to use my new prosthetic leg so I could get to the bar for my next drink. (yeah I was doing just fine back then, booze wasn&#39;t really a problem it was the roadway and the crappy song on the radio that caused me to black out).

    By the time I got around to having the fraudulent testicle installed, I&#39;d learned to function quite well without and so, the silicone replacement was truly alien to me. I can&#39;t say as to whether it would have been different or better if the prosthetic had been put in at the very start; although I can say that my prosthetic leg still feels odd and not quite right.

    Idon&#39;t know if this makes you feel better, but there are whole tribes of Bushmen in southern Africa that traditionally sacrificed one testicle of each boy at about age eight or nine in the belief that it would help them grow up to run faster in chasing game. Alas, practice is waning in modern times.

    I had a friend and co-worker who&#39;d lost both testicles to cancer at two separate times. He was a former Army officer and a very manly man. He took testosterone and had a normal sex life with his wife. He also didn&#39;t mind telling his male friends very matter-of-factly about his situation. I actually admired him for how well adjusted he was to it. I don&#39;t know if he had prostheses, but I&#39;m sure he would have told me if I&#39;d asked. I just never thought to do so.

    You seem to be doing fine. For what they&#39;re for, one&#39;s plenty. If a prosthesis will make you feel better about yourself, get one. It&#39;s up to you. :thumbsup:

    Well I know one of my uncles has only one testicle. He is 27 and he is married and all, I believe he was born this way. I know because It poped out on a conversation I had with my dad about this white bumps I have on my penis head he told me that the penis of every man is unique and everyone mght have something that the other one doesnt and that its not good to take porn penises as reference lol.
    Anyway, I talked to my uncle once and he wasnt embarrased to talk about it and he told me that he considered the protesis but then thought twice about it and realized that if anyone should like him it should be the way he is :) .. lol I need to say that made me ponder over how much I care about the apperance of my testicles and penis.

    I say that if the protesis makes you feel good you should get it because the most important thing is that you feel comfortable with your body so that you can project that security to your partner. :)

    Yes, i had saw it and enjoy a relationship with a mono testicular guy because of some kind of medical problem and medical mistake he lost a testicule as a baby.

    He was very open about it with girls he dated exclusively because he became sterile. I decide brake up the relationship after a while because was very important for me to have a baby in the future, he understood that i did not want a relationship with any sterile man ( it doesnt bother me he had a single ball at all). I know he got married few years later.:wink:

    I know some people can be cruel but you have to find a way to really get the help u need to embrace who u are and find a support group too - because u are not a circus freak u are not !!!:mad:

    Take care!!!!
