What a Great Experience this group has become. The kinship in Brotherhood. There is such a diverse range of topics. This is the place we can be as open as we want to be... Everyone is welcome to join, but it is not a place to Cruise. It's for sharing sexual questions and comments among men.
Freeballing Friday
gymrat44 posted:
Lately I've been enjoying freeballing on Fridays -- a quiet and inexpensive way to do something special for myself. I really enjoy the feel of my equipment banging against the back of the metal fly buttons on my jeans! Only problem I've had is getting sweaty, not having put on enough talcum powder after my shower and having my scrotum start sticking to my thigh during the afternoon. My tip: take a small travel-size package of talcum powder with you when you go to work. Slip it in your jeans pocket when you go to the men's room. Pick a stall and add a little powder while you're there, problem solved. Who says we guys can't go to the 'powder room' as well? Happy hanging!

hey gymrat, another benefit to freeballing is using the stairs instead of the elevator. love the way the crotch seam on my jeans bangs against my ball bag a little differently going up and going down.
Torcal responded:
I do it all the time. Can;t stand being restricted. Only consequence is going to the doctor. Nurse tells me to take off all my clothes except my shorts, put on the gown and lay down on my back. When the doctor lifts up the gown nurse goes into shock fixates on my equipment.

I've freeballed to the doctor! He asked if I do it all the time
bj102364 responded:
I wear very loose boxers so I am essentially freeballing all the time. I like the feeling. I don't generally use powder so I know the feeling of sticking to my thigh. I wear low rise jeans low on my waist. I like them because they have more crotch room and things can swing from side to side and not get trapped on one side. I don't mind being bound up for running, working out etc, but I'd get claustrophobic if things couldn't dangle most of the time.

I assume that men who sleep in tight underwear must sleep with their penis pointing upwards or else what would happen when they become erect with their penis bound down?
stev1022 replied to bj102364's response:
I don't always wear tight underwear to bed.... sometimes I do, sometimes I don't, but I can tell you that when I do, I can tell you that I do not pull my penis up so that it points upwards. That is a very uncomfortable feeling for me..... My penis naturally lays down and to the left, and when I do become erect, then there is just a bigger bulge in my underwear. I guess it is all what a guy is used to......
bj102364 replied to stev1022's response:
I like the feeling of my penis pointing up. Of course it hangs down when I'm wearing boxers, but when I wear a jock strap I like to point it up. I always sleep with it pointed up also.

Today's Friday so I deided to give freeballing a try. I love the feel of my "junk" rubbing against my jeans.
hairyd replied to joe8843's response:
Joe strip the boxer at night also. You will not go back to briefs. You will be suprised how many times the wife will start playing with her favorite toy........ when it free for the touch. You May want to start daily extra MEGA Vitamins.
bj102364 replied to joe8843's response:
When I get in a boxers or briefs discussion with other guys it's funny how most of them wear briefs and get freaked out at the thought of everything swinging around freely. For me it's the only way to go.
hairyd replied to bj102364's response:
Guys when you free ball. Dudes do not wear full leg short pants. Man sitting across from me in a office this morning. His junk in view, each time I looked up from my magizine. I was thinking I would love to be looking at his wife's bush. After a lady sit next to me. She enjoyed the view. Then ask his wife to request the husband to close the peek show. He was hung like a donkey; but the lady use the word for him to cover his small dic. This encouraged the dude to continue to relax.
Torcal responded:
Freeballing is also beneficial to men who are trying to conceive a family. The testes make sperm only when the temperature is right. If one's balls are usually jammed into Jockey shorts or a jock, each holds the Testicles against the body where they get too hot and stop producing sperm. Worse yet are hot tubs. They just simply stop sperm production until they can again reach their usual temperature.
joe8843 replied to Torcal's response:
Todays' Friday. How many of you guys are freeballing?
