What are Blue Balls?
A common question people have is “are blue balls real?” The answer is yes, and they are medically referred to as epididymal hypertension (EH).
EH is caused by the buildup of blood that is sent to your genitals when you are erect and preparing for sexual activity not being released and remaining built up in your genital region.
How Do I Get Rid of Blue Balls
The buildup of blood is typically released during orgasm, preventing any pain or “blue balls”-related discomfort. Thus, orgasm is the most optimal blue balls prevention tool.
If your genital pain has already begun, it might be hard to reach orgasm or masturbate due to the testicular pain. For this instance, it may be more appealing to use a softer sex toy to orgasm and release the blood buildup that is causing any pain. The TENGA EGG Series products are soft and flexible disposable masturbators that can be helpful in that their soft material and stimulating interiors can be used to delicately rub or stroke one to orgasm.
Are Blue Balls a Serious Issue?
If you are suffering from blue balls, or epididymal hypertension (EH), your best bets are to either wait it out or make a careful attempt at orgasm to release the buildup of blood.
Blue balls will resolve on their own relatively quickly, so they should never be used as an excuse to force any sexual interaction. If your sexual partner is insisting on intercourse because of blue balls, there should be a conversation had about not pressuring sex from each other. Then, inform them that it will go away on its own, or hand them a soft and friendly TENGA EGG to find relief with.
If you are having persistent, non-resolving pain in the genitals, it is possibly a condition more serious than blue balls and should be seen by a medical professional as soon as possible.
To summarize, blue balls are in fact real and are medically referred to as epididymal hypertension (EH).
This, however, is not an excuse for forcing any sexual interaction, as blue balls will be relieved on their own as the buildup of blood that causes discomfort naturally disperses away from the genital region.
If EH is a common theme in your life, we suggest diversifying your ways of reaching ejaculation by trying out the items from the TENGA STORE USA. If your genital pain persists, contact a medical professional.
