Who has never heard a man say that he needs to achieve an orgasm in order to avoid pain in the testicles? They usually speak in a slightly more colloquial language. This statement is quite old. In fact, there are already documented references from the early 20th century. But is this a real problem or is it more of a psychological problem?

To answer this question, a group of scientists from the US and Canada conducted a survey. 2621 people, of which 57% had a penis and 43% had a vagina. They were all asked about their sexual habits as well as their experience with pain in the testicles or vulva if they did not reach orgasm.

And the fact is that although the most famous is testicular pain, it is true that people with vaginas also report discomfort in certain cases. The study did not draw a clear conclusion about the causes, but identified two hypotheses who seems to have more power on the origin of this curious phenomenon.

Blue balls, a curious way to talk about testicular pain

IN 1916In the United States, for the first time, they started talking about the phenomenon of blue balls. And the fact is that the people who reported this effect had in mind not only pain in the testicles. They also indicated that they were placed the color is blue.

Over time, some researchers began to look into what could be the cause, although only one case has been documented in the scientific literature. Despite this, this phenomenon was given a medical name, renamed to epididymal hypertension.

According to the authors of this term, testicular pain is caused by blockage of blood vessels in the penisthat fill with blood during an erection. When orgasm occurs, they are quickly emptied, and the appendages and vas deferens secrete sperm. However, if orgasm is not achieved, the accumulation of all these fluids can click on testiclescausing pain and discomfort. In addition, deoxygenated blood gave the scrotal sac a slight blue color.

In the case of people with vaginas, much less understood (which surprises no one), the causes would be similar. Blood vessels also contract and then expand into climax, so the same overload can occur. All this in case the pain in the testicles or the vulva really has a physiological explanation. Something that many scientists are not so sure about.

And if everything is on a psychological level?

There are a large number of researchers who believe that testicular and vulvar pain or blue balls do not actually exist as such. Some speculate that this is the way force a partner to end the relationship. For others, it is not intentional coercion, but suggestion due to the importance given to orgasm, which can lead to somatization.

It is in order to avoid such suggestions that sexologists insist again and again that sexual relations are no less pleasant if they do not end in orgasm. In fact, if we are obsessed with getting we can get lost along the way.

To test whether this makes sense, the authors of a study just published in sexual medicine volunteers were asked if they believed in the phenomenon blue balls and if they ever experienced it.

Thus, they saw that people with a penis were more likely to experience some kind of discomfort. with 56%, compared to 42% of people with vagina. It may not seem like much of a difference, but we can’t leave out the orgasmic gap. There were also a lot more people with penis who said that their relationship always ended with an orgasm. Therefore, it is more difficult for them to be able to experience pain in testicles.

It should be noted that the nature of the discomfort was also different. People with a penis usually complain of pain in the testicles and discomfortwhile people with vaginas are more of a kind itching and pain that is not only focused on the vulva but can also be felt in the abdomen and vagina.

age matters too

Curiously, among people with a penis, most admitted that testicular pain was felt more when they were younger. In contrast, people with vaginas found no difference with age. But they admitted that they felt more compelled to reach orgasm with it. apology with their sexual partners when they were younger. This would support the hypothesis of psychological and social origin.

Be that as it may, it is obvious that there are many ways to achieve orgasm. Or, if not, to relieve congestion that can cause testicular pain. To this end, the authors recommend masturbate after the end of a relationship, exercise, meditate, or something as simple as peeing. Either option is fine as long as it doesn’t involve forcing anyone. Because if there’s anything worse than genital pain, it’s the heartache of someone you’ve confided in forcing you into something as intimate as sex.
