Why getting hit in the balls hurts so much
As any guy will tell you, nothing, and I mean nothing, hurts as much as getting hit in the balls. The question is, why?
What causes such inconceivable pain? Well, for starters, a shot to the balls is just like any other physical strike to the body: because of nerves, it’s gonna hurt. Unlike most other parts of your body, though, your scrotum lacks protection in the form of bones, large muscle mass, and fat. The testes are just wee little glands, and they’re going to absorb the whole force of the blow all on their own.
Another thing that makes a ball shot so painful is the same thing that makes almost every other sensation down there so much fun. Your groin has a ridiculously high number of sensory nerve endings, and such generous innervation makes good and bad touches alike very noticeable sensations.
Now you know, but that doesn’t mean the next time you get hit in the private parts will hurt any less. Sorry.
