For a long time, I thought blue balls was something that dudes made up in 7th grade in order to get further around the bases than their girlfriends were comfortable with traveling. Turns out, the phenomenon is real and technically called vasoconstriction. But it’s not just the guys who have trouble with, in the words of my old friend Carly Simon, anticipation. This just in from The Frisky:
Medical science has proven that women get a similar painful feeling when we don’t get to finish properly either. There is nothing worse then being close to climaxing and losing it; just because we don’t physically ejaculate (well, much) doesn’t mean we don’t get pink balls.
Stupid name, I know. But interesting finding. Let’s just make a lady pact that we won’t use our vasoconstriction as a form of manipulation, shall we?
