Blue Balls: The Need to Finish

Blue Balls: The Need to Finish | Unmysh 2020

‘Blue balls’ is a condition that is scientifically known as epididymal hypertension. It might sound scary, but it actually isn’t. If there is one medical condition that has been misunderstood and misrepresented by the masses, it’s blue balls. Let’s carefully try to understand this condition and the severity of it from the perspective of a 24-year-old man. 

What is ‘blue balls’?

Some men are geniuses when it comes to coming up with excuses. Among straight couple, sex is considered ‘finished’ once the guy ejaculates. A woman’s orgasm is usually an afterthought or in worst cases, not even considered. If the sex is interrupted for some reason, the man experiences what 75% of women experienced throughout the world – an anticlimax. This unfathomable experience gave birth to a new excuse called ‘blue balls.’

Theoretically, it should look something like this…

The beauty of this concept is that it’s not complete hogwash. Science backs up the theory to a certain extent after which exaggeration takes the wheel. 

As you know, blood rushes to your penis when you are aroused, which helps you gain an erection. And every man knows that it is usually followed by ejaculation.

But what happens when you don’t take the load off?

Epididymal hypertension is a condition where the process of ejaculation is halted. As a result, blood rushes towards the testicles, causing tension. Contrary to the popular belief, it has no dire side effects whatsoever. 

‘Blue balls’ is blown out of proportion

‘Blue balls’ piggybacks off the above theory and suggests that once a man is erect and is engaging in intercourse, he has to finish. You can debunk this theory on your own by mere logic.

So do men have to ejaculate every time they get hard? As a fellow penis-owner, I know you tend to get hard at random places without any sexual stimulation. This is especially true among teens and young adults. But you don’t always excuse yourself to avoid this apparent “serious condition.” 

What I learned about blue balls is that it is a harmless medical condition deliberately manipulated to make sure some men always climax. Now is that right?

Predominantly, sex in India revolves around the pleasures of a man. Through the blue balls theory, us men are not only not helping women finish but are actually expecting them to help us finish.

It’s a sad, sad, sad, sad world.

Blue balls, although a real medical condition, can be cured easily without emotionally blackmailing anyone. For instance, you can simply masturbate, take a cold shower or just exercise to relieve yourself of the discomfort. It’s doctor recommended.

Sex should be mutual. I understand that unfinished orgasms can lead to frustration. In fact, sexual frustration is a real concept. But the burden to get you to the finish shouldn’t completely fall on your partner.

Communicating with your partner about your needs and what helps you finish is the best way to move forward. So, the next time you suffer from blue balls, don’t place blame. Instead, guide them. Who knows? You might also learn a thing or two while teaching your partner what works for you.
