Two questions:

Has another BFer harassed you to a point that you felt like leaving?

Also,

Yesterday I completely crunched my jewels and I've had pain in there since yesterday. What should I do, massage it with baby oil? Another bfer mentioned that's what I should do.

Two answers:
1. no. But, don't let that stop you from hanging out with the BF'rs that you enjoy. Sorry there are grumpy and annoying people in this world.
2. can't help you there, sorry.

No, and thats a medical question I probably shouldn't answer. Althouh, I do remember from martial arts that after I got kicked in the balls that I jumped up and down to get them to drop back out.

First - if that's the case, contact a mod to work it out.

Second - if you want to massage your privates with baby oil, don't need to justify it as some sort of therapy. Better yet, just keep it to yourself. Seriously, no, it won't help because the pain is probably internal.

A long time ago, another BFer did harass me. I don't let people harassing me make me want to leave though. If you are being harassed, PM a mod.

I don't know if any ointment is going to help with your pain, I would just wait another 24 hours and see how it feels. If conditions do not improve or worsen, you might want to talk to a doctor...

Once I jumped off a high cliff into the ocean and landed the wrong way. Basically, the water pounded one of my testicles and it ended up swelling to the size of a golf ball. I visited the doctor and he told me that the best thing to do is just wait it out. He only recommended returning if anything got worse (i.e. more swelling or blood in my urine or semen).

I am impervious to harrassment

I have balls of steel

Thus I am unable to help you on either issue

That question wasn't in regards to me. This person has harassed my friend on yahoo in the past. Both bfers of course.

What I have to lose is the fact that tiger balm stings, and it could hurt alot. I seriously wedged my package in between my seat and it felt like the breath just got beaten outta me.

I once jumped off a swingset and landed in such a way that I drove my heel right into my nuts.

I once got a nut wedged into the cutout of a Terry saddle when I went over a speedbump.

Ouch to both.

Jon, tell your friend not to leave. I agree, let the mods help.

Seriously...have you tried ice (not directly, but wrapped in a towel)?

It's almost bedtime- we could short-sheet this individual's bunk. Or send him/her out in the woods to get a bucket of steam. Yeah- they would work.

1) Nope, if it did happen I would probably ask them what type of corncob has found it's way up their rectum.

2) baby oil will reduce friction, which will be a good thing. Talcum powder applied liberally will be of limited benefit, but is better than nothing.

Not stuck, just pinched, which was bad enough.

And for the record, that wasn't my saddle. It was a borrowed bike. I rock an SLR on my steed.
