testicular pain
An_255261 posted:
I have a 16 year only friend, he and his girlfriend are into kinky acts.
more specifically for this topic, "cock and ball torture". his girlfriend told me that the last time they had sex she took this twine (thicker and stiffer then yarn) and wrapped it around his scrotum tightly. he told her after words that he didn't have a whole lot of pain but after that day he was in a lot of pain with a slight purple color (his whole scrotum). since that day he has not had too much pain but has surges of pain lasting from an hour up to the rest of the day. this has been going on for a week or so without improving any. im curious as to what could be the issue and how such an issue could have happened during this act as well as the fix for the pain.
