boyfriend has really small testicles...

i mean there's like nothing there.. they don't hang down at all most of the time
there's a little bit of fleshiness in the area but that's about it
of course i didn't say anything but i was really shocked the first time i saw them... could they be retracting for some reason or is this more normal than i thought?

thanks,
jenna

I sure hope it's normal. My penis is respectable, but I, too, have small balls. They do retract to almost disappear during sex. It's not uncommon, in fact there are some male porn stars whose balls retract up during sex. If he's pleasuring you and you enjoy it, then who cares?

Re: boyfriend has really small testicles...

I wish I could trade my oversized testicles for a larger penis

Re: boyfriend has really small testicles...

Small testicles, less than 1" in diameter is usually a sign of the testicles not getting enough hormone signals to produce testosterone & sperm. They are not working properly. Some guys need HCG injections in the thigh every week to jumpstart the testicle growth & production of testosteron & sperm.

It can be caused by several factors, but should be checked by an endocronoligst that specials in hormones.

Re: boyfriend has really small testicles...

The information posted directly above is correct and true, but the original poster has not stated that the guy's actual testicular orbs are small in size -- she seems to be saying that his testicular sac simply doesn't hang down much. She MIGHT be observing both small testicles and a tighter sac -- or she might not.

Variations in size of testicles are quite normal and of little concern. As already mentioned, if she is seeing his testicles only in a sexual situation when he is aroused -- it is far more likely that his sac will be tighter when he is in a turgid state.

Making comparisons to other men she has seen can be useful, but should not be taken at face value: there are large differences between guys, obviously.

Most likely, if his equipment works as it should -- probably there is no problem. If he has any difficulties or has expressed his own concerns -- by all means, see a doc.

Re: boyfriend has really small testicles...

so could it be a good thing that they're so tight? like he's just really turned on?
i never really get a chance to see them normally because by the time i get to them he's already excited... i THINK they do hang down a bit more... i'll have to try to get a good look next time
thanks for the replies, everyone

PS i don't think the actual testicles are really small... i could be wrong though... i'm not really sure how to tell

Re: boyfriend has really small testicles...

Does it matter that you think your boyfriend has really small testicles as long as he is healthy? It shouldn't matter because if he's a healthy male and can perform sexual acts then it should be no problem. By the way, testicles don't aid in sexual intercourse anyway.

i was just wondering how common it is or what could be causing them to retract since i've never seen this before

Re: boyfriend has really small testicles...

Jenna:

Yes, it is common and normal for a man's testicular sac to become tighter when he is aroused -- also during orgasm -- also when he is cold. The changes in the sac are a biological necessity. Sperm is best stored at a certain temperature. The skin moves closer to the body when a little more heat is needed... and further away when a little more coolness is desired. But it also just happens during arousal and orgasm and with ambient temperature changes.

Bottom line: there are many variations in size of testicles and testicular sacs. Testicles CAN be atrophied and shrivel -- this requires medical attention. But most likely any guy who has noticed this happen to his testicles is going to FLY to the doctor of his own accord. Just as there are "average" sizes for penises and every other body part, there are also variations on what is average.

Sometimes if a man's testicles are very taught, it is harder to feel the orbs -- they can move halfway into the body a bit. Also very normal. Some guys hang down quite a bit -- some do not.

If you are more curious and he is willing to experiment, an erection ring will keep his testicles in the sac and allow you to feel and play with them a bit more easily.

Since he is generally always aroused when you see him naked, eventually as your relationship goes along you will sooner or later see him flaccid and might notice a change in his testicles at that time. Right now, you are exciting him an awful lot. As you two become more comfortable with each other insomuch as you can be naked and not necessarily be having sex every moment you are naked, probably you'll see differences in how his testicles react to temperature.

Suggesting a warm, relaxing shower to him might give you a good idea of how temperature changes things. But don't worry even if it doesn't -- he may just have a tighter sac and that's just how he is.

As for the statement that testicles don't aid in intercourse... I am not sure what that means. They don't have to penetrate the vagina, but certainly testicles that don't function normally will often have an effect on a man's erection.

It's cool that you are curious -- and you are seeing now probably for the first time the many differences in male anatomy. Nothing wrong with that. Probably your boyfriend will enjoy you exploring him. It seems that you aren't doing anything to make him uncomfortable at all, so have fun with it. As long as you don't insult his equipment, everything will be fine.

Re: boyfriend has really small testicles...

oh man you know i one time dated a guy with very small testicles just as the original poster described. And I don't think it was because he was excited or tight, plain and simple he just had small testicles. But he did had a large penis to compensate. I too thought that was so weird as he looked like he had no testicles at all.

Is this true? A one-inch diameter sounds like a huge size to me. Almost too big. Can you verify that?

But that sounds rather large to me. Is that really the typical size? I was thinking that the testicle is actually somewhat oval. Is the one-inch diameter that you speak of the "long" side of this oval shape? Am I correct about the oval shape? That is what I detect with a self-evaluation.
