    Actually it's pretty normal. I know when I've had orgasms in the past, esp. while masturbating, the testes will tend to be drawn up to the upper part of the scrotum, sometimes leaving all together and disappearing into the body for a short time. They always come back, God bless 'em...

    By the way, I didn't respond to the poll because the best answer is not there (everything's fine).
    stevesmw responded:
    My testicles are temperature sensitive, which I believe is the norm. Up when cold and down when hot. Never paid much attention during sexual activity, but would prefer they are not flopping around.

    When I'm giving my partner oral, one of the ways I know he's about to ejaculate is that his testicles rise and become tight ...
    There's nothing inherently dirty about sex, but if you try real hard and use your imagination you can overcome that.
    dfromspencer responded:
    Relax, that is the normal response. When us men ejackulate, our testes will rise, that is part of what gives us the best possible ejackulation. So, relax and enjoy the sex.

    Anon_9793 responded:
    How about a pinching feeling toward the top of the testicle? Is this normal? When masturbating and I'm getting close to finishing, my testicles also draw up real tight and sometimes move back into the body cavity and sometimes I feel a pinching. Normal? Or am I just matrubating too much?
