Hi,

I have this weird thing happening that I've never really noticed before. When I have an erection and am lying down, if I pull on my erect penis, my left testicle (never my right one) seems to sort of "slide up" into my groin area, where it feels like it becomes "caught" there. When it does that, if I press down on the bony area just at the upper left corner of my scrotum, I can feel the testicle, and it hurts because it's "squeezed" against the bone or something. I can push the testicle back down, but I have to sort of hold it there; otherwise, it rises back up of its own accord until my erection goes away. At which point everything's back to normal.

This can be quite painful for obvious reasons (my wife and I were having some fun the other day and she pulled, then pressed down on that area inadvertently and it was like getting kicked in the testicles.) What exactly is going on here? Is this an example of "retractile testicle"? I'm 37...I thought that sort of thing only happened in childhood?

I'm clueless on all of this, so any informed answers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
