Why is it that when a man masturbates it feels like his testicles dissapear? Honest to god it feels like they are there one second and they dissapear for awhile....then poof they are back again? How the heck does that happen? Do they just get pulled up inward?

The testicles usually ascend during orgasm from the pelvic muscles that contract. I've even read from guys on here that say their testicles go up into their body. I don't know if that's a problem or not, but simple ascension is normal.

My fiancee's testicles get closer together, like, tighter, and also harder. Beforehand they are loose and squishy and hang lower, but when I'm fondling them the tighten up Smile They don't go anywhere near ascending into his body, though I've not yet managed to pay attention while he was orgasming.

As I understood it, it's just the muscles contracting to ejaculate that pull your testicles up. However, I've had a partner, who was a nurse, tell me that it's a function to protect the testicles from injury. How so, I don't know, since they were just swinging around prior to.

There's another interesting reflex that testicles are purported to do for safety reasons. If someone (can't do it yourself) suddenly pokes or perhaps squeezes a certain part of a male's inner thigh, the testicles will shift to the other side. I read that when trying to find out why testicles move around in a smooth, ocean wave type motion at times.

I wish they were in the body at all times. It'd save us some bad pain. They need a better cooling system then this hanging free method. Dangerous.
