A Doctor Explains Why Getting Kicked in the Balls Hurts So Damn Much


Is getting kicked in the balls that much worse than other pain (as some men have claimed)? Nope, not really. (Sorry, dudes).

While the testicles are a particularly fragile body part, all pain is relative. Ball pain, while strong, doesn’t break any bones and is very short term. The pains from childbirth, even a broken nose, probably outweigh testicular injuries, Dr. Mirza says.

I heard a great comment from a comedian. He said, “I can prove getting kicked in the balls hurts more than childbirth. Most women would have another child, even when they know what the pain will be like. Ask any man if he’d liked to be kicked in the balls again….”
