Many men have had erections at the wrong time and place, for example during important presentations in front of coworkers or when meeting prospective in-laws. Or is it precisely the following scenario that has happened to you? When the flirting session with him he was hot, suddenly a guest knocked on the door. Now you are left alone with a dormant erection without treatment. A tight penis, with or without stimulation, but not finished with ejaculation can cause testicular pain. This condition is popularly called blue balls, because sometimes the pain can be so defeated that it makes the testicles turn blue. Is this a danger?
What is blue balls?
In popular culture, blue balls are a figure of speech to describe sexual frustration when you fail to get sexual satisfaction or not be able to vent /complete sexual desire for one reason or another. For example, when the penis is erect in a public place you will inevitably have to hold it until your business is finished, and get the right place and time to handle it. This anxiety and restlessness until you can ejaculate is commonly referred to as blue balls.
In the medical world, blue balls is known as epididymal hypertension. This occurs when the penis erection is prolonged without an orgasm ending. When you are aroused, the heart will drain blood to the penis to build an erection. At the same time, the testicles are attracted to the body to prepare semen. If the situation and conditions are right, the erection will end in semen ejaculation so that the penis can return to its original weight.
But when there is an interruption so that ejaculation fails or is delayed, blood triggered by hypersensitivity previous sexual stimulation will continue to flow to your intimate organs. As a result, the penis will continue to erect and the testicles will swell, feel heavy /full, and hurt.
In some cases, blue balls can really make the testicles turn blue. It is caused by blood that accumulates and is trapped in the testes for a long time, so the hemoglobin which is usually red will turn blue due to the lack of oxygen intake. This is called blue balls.
Is blue balls dangerous?
Blue balls is not dangerous, it is not a serious medical condition. But it can indeed cause pain and pain in the testicles after experiencing an erection without orgasm. The pain sensation can even spread to the upper abdomen to the pit of the stomach.
Blue balls are more common in men who are easily aroused, especially when in certain situations. Masturbation habits and the position or manner of sexual intercourse can also affect a man experiencing painful and swollen testicles due to this "blue ball".
How to deal with testicular pain due to blue balls
There are no known methods or consumption of certain drugs specifically intended to relieve testicular pain due to blue balls. Blue balls can generally shrink and disappear on their own when blood pressure in the testicles decreases or returns to normal. This can be achieved by trying to ejaculate so that you can reach orgasm, either by masturbating or having sexual intercourse safely. After orgasm, the pain of the testicles will disappear slowly.
If the time and place do not allow you to ejaculate, there are several other ways to make the penis go back weak, such as:
- Take a cold shower, or compress the genital area with an ice pack
- Switching thoughts . Try to think of things that are boring, annoying, or weird. For example, annoying work deadlines or dead mice that you met on the road.
- Walk. When you walk, your body will drain blood to other parts, such as the legs and brain. The blood that had gathered in the pelvic area will move to another place so that the penis no longer erects.
- Look for other activities , like watching a movie or listening to music
- Sports to divert blood from testicular blood vessels to muscles
If the pain or swelling does not go away, your testicular pain may be caused by something other than blue balls due to failed orgasm.
