I'm a 21 year old male, and am very self concious of myself "down there" because my testicles seem to hang pretty low. This can even cause a problem sometimes because they are not full protected from laying on them incorrectly, sitting , etc... I know it all depends on how hot or cold you are, but to me, there are almost always hanging too low, and only very rarely supported well... Is there a reason this could be? Its been like this for years or as long as I can remember. Is it just genetics? anything I can do?
Pretty weird question I know but just looking for some answers.
Thanks in advance.
p.s. I am not overweight, I am in great shape and work out 4 times a week. I'm a muscular guy so it's not just excess skin like a larger person might have.
Hey bud, sounds genetic to me. And no, its not a wierd question at all. Some of us just hang low and you're one of them. Seems like its going to be up to you to give the boys as much support as you can and take good care of them.
Well I wear boxer briefs but most of those don't give great support if you have this problem. It's not really causing any serious issues unless I sit down on them wrong or something, lol... it's just that it seems less "attractive" to the opposite sex... I do have a stead girlfriend of 3.5 years but it still makes me a little self concious... I guess I'll just have to live with it, thanks
Hey bud this issue showed up on another board category I think, but worth an answer. Yes, it probably is genetic, and no, it's not a weird question at all. Like Lance said.... some of us have low/loose hangers--I know what you mean, though, since I do too. I don't think it's unattractive to women, and probably is just a self-conscious thing with you. I also laughed like hell when you mentioned sitting on them, etc hehe that is a joke that only guys with them would get (it ranks with flopping all over the place if you have boxers on and run up stairs lol) I agree that boxer briefs are useless--but if you hang that low, most briefs are way too confining and uncomfortable. I go with regular boxers under dress pants/suit, for comfort and modesty too (things don;t show badly). For gym workout, I still wear a jock. That's a time when you really feel self-conscious I think, and the low floppers can be injured if not kept under control. So yeah, we live with it. But don't be embarrassed--I've never had a woman comment negatively yet; and after 3.5 years, your girlfriend obviously sees a lot more to value in you than how low the boys hang. Best of luck.
If briefs or boxer briefs are not comfortable for you, you might try wearing what's called a suspensory under your boxers. It's basically a waistband with a pouch attached in front - that's it. (Some brands have legs straps too, kind of like a jockstrap.) Now don't laugh: The pouch includes an opening at the top that you pass your penis through. As a result you are able to pull the pouch up snugly onto your scrotum. So if you wore a suspensory under boxers, part of you would still have the "freer" feeling you're used to with boxers. You also wouldn't have to take the suspensory off to use the bathroom.
It seems a little strange at first but it is really very comfortable, having your testicles supported but without that constricting feeling that briefs give. I wear one under my boxers if I know I'm going to be doing a lot of walking.
Suspensories are sold in all sizes based on pouch size. Not all drug stores sell them, but the larger, non-chain ones usually do. Or if you're shy, do a Web search on suspensory and you'll find online sources. Good luck.
Hey guy, most men would love to have "Low Hangers"! Just enjoy the feeling of them slapping around if you know what I mean...I know guys that try and stretch their ball sack because it feels good having that extra hanging skin and balls like a bull, swaying back and forth. ? Are you balls large. That could also be a factor. Larger balls make the sack hang lower. Either way guy would trade my normal ones for a nice set of low hangers any day!!!
Well I am too one of those guys that is a very loose hanger, I can take my balls an literally slap them around. I thought something was wrong at first but after reading the post, I guess it's ok. I seem to always stretch the skin of my scrotum alot, it's just a habit, and that may have contributed to the situation a little bit.
