    Man jewels misplaced after riding?

    Do your rocks ever turn around after riding? One of mine turns about 180 degrees completely around. Doesn't hurt, no redness or swelling, it's just turned around, and stays like that until I walk around for about a half an hour.

    Anyway... I wanted to know if this was normal or if I should scrap riding for the sake of my future children....

    I didn't know where was a front and a back. My thought is if it doesn't hurt and there's no numbness you're probably fine.

    Yeah I guess nothing is immediately wrong, it's just that I don't like having out of the ordinary things happen down there

    I got curious and did some testing. Mine can go at least three full revolutions "lock to lock", so to speak. I can't tell which one is front and which one is back. Don't know if it's from too much riding or if it has always been this way, though. I have two kids.

    I'm glad that I'm not the only one with this concern... one of mine will flip top-to-bottom when riding, or attempt to "go home" when it's chilly out. I've figured that if nothing hurts, nothing's being damaged, but you don't hear guys talk about it much...

    I'm not worried about the berries anymore.. mine have been for decoration purposes only since my daughter was 2. Now if the mighty oak becomes a withered vine, I get nervous. Fortunately, I got the numbness issues resolved.

    If nothing else, you guys might make a living at a carnival side show - "see the men with rotating balls!"
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    You guys crack me up
    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.

    You mean implying, and no, I'm not implying that. I'm implying that they twist independently of each other.

    I can't say I ever torsioned my testicles. I would try to twist them right now, but I'm in public. Only problems I get with my testicles is the back of my scrotum, the testicles' skin, rubbing.

    I think some of you folks need to work on your stroke- smooth complete circles. If your form is perfect, your jewels should lie perfectly still. If your strokes are too jerky and violent, you're risking injury to your knees, hips, and yes, to your jewels.

    A trainer can help smooth out your stroke.

    From what I understand testicular torsion is a medical emergency. From the time the condition becomes painful you have a very short time to get the situation under control before lack of blood flow causes death of the tissue. I'm sure some twisting is normal...they are just hanging there after all, but I would ask a medical professional for some input. If you're not in pain then you probably have not experienced testicular torsion, but some people may be more prone to it than others. The symptoms you describe may or may not be a sign of increases susceptibility. Worth asking somebody who can say for sure.

    I've had them "hide", but since I have the (apparently very unusual) ability to pull them in at will, I never thought much of it.

    I've heard bikeforums has a women's forum. I've asked about a men's forum, but so far no answer.
