Tight balls

Does anyone ever get "tight balls", where the scrotom gets tight around your balls like when its cold outside. I have been really stressed out lately and have been noticing this. How do I make this stop and is it normal.

Re: Tight balls

Yeah I have had them before but dont know what brings it on, sometimes it will just happen, never gave it much thought as to why it does.

Are you speaking of "tight" when just before ejaculation or at other times?

Re: Tight balls

I think you will notice that after you ejaculate that the bag relaxes and feels empty so that the balls hang loose. As you get horny again, the bag will draw up around the balls so that the balls feel full. If is normal for the bag to draw up really tight on the balls just before ejaculation. The tightness of the bag will vary with tempterature also. Don't worry about it.

Re: Tight balls

Funny you should mention that. I recently had my vascectomy done and the doc asked if my bag was always that tight and if it ever hanged more that it did that day.
Well basically it was no. He seemed surprised. I seem to be the ultimate teenager with a tight bag all the time and erections too many.
Any suggestions I will take.

Re: Tight balls

so, having ur "bag" tight all the time increases erections?

i thought it just got tight when it was cold, and loosened up when it's warm, coz when you're taking a hot shower, it loosens up (i.e. when you're supposed to be able to check for testicular cancer).

Re: Tight balls

Having a tight sack is a normal reaction for guys due to cold, fright, stress, etc--nothing to worry about. It's nature's way of protecting our equipment when we sense danger of any kind--including stress. Anything from a cold shower to real nervousness, to outright anxiety or stress can cause it. I agree it "feels" and "looks" funny, but I guess it's best to trust what nature does. I freaked out a few times when it got extremely tight--I normally have low hangers (which despite the common opinion to be cool or major manly can actually be a pain to own), so to suddenly have things drawn up really close other than near ejaculating was weird. But give things time and all goes back to "normal." Nothing to sweat over.

Re: Tight balls

If everything works alright and you don't have any pain, I wouldn't worry about it. Like the previous poster said, stress will cause that to happen. I've heard of a few guys out there that have tight sctoums most of the time, perhaps due to low body temperature in that region?

Mine get tight when cold, usually they are tight anytime I'm aroused - even if I'm not near ejaculating, and when I run or exercise (which is probably why I don't feel the need for a jock strap).

We're all a little different in that area, so I wouldn't sweat it unless it causes you problems.
