How painful is getting blue balls?

My boyfriend and I were video chatting and he wanted to have sex that way? I said I didn't want to because I thought it was weird. And he said that was fine. But then a few min later he got "blueballs." And it really looked like he was in a lot of pain. I didn't know he was like... hard already and then I felt terrible because we kept talking and he was in pain for a while after. I still feel really bad about it because that's never happened while he's been around me, but he says it's happened before. I am wondering... how painful is this?

  • Blue balls HURT. Imagine your balls were water balloons and you somehow managed to push a watermelon into it. That pressure on the water balloon is what your balls feel like when they're "blue". It's like they're about to burst but they have no where to go. Only the pain doesn't stop at the balls, it travels up a line probably 6 inches into your abdomen somewhere and then abruptly stops. It's extremely uncomfortable and lasts for probably an hour or so when you stop getting aroused.

    I've only had it happen a couple times during really long foreplay sessions where I get carried away fingering her and giving oral and I don't stop to take care of my own needs.

  • Blue balls is part real and part a made up condition to feign harm when denied sex. The real part is strain on the vas deferens and muscular tissue suspending the testicles that pull them up during arousal along with the associated engorged prostate. Long arousal followed by no ejaculation can leave you with a dull ache and pressure that can last an hour or so.

  • It's pretty dangerous since you threathen your veins suppyling blood to your balls.

    If these valves get damaged, your balls will shrink, resulting to less testosterone, which can result in for example male pattern baldness.

    Or you'd need a serious operation to prevent the risk of those things.

    It carries great risks for your health as a man in any case.

  • I've never had it

  • I've never had blue balls. I think guys just make it up to make girls feel bad for not having sex with us. I mean I can get horny to the point its annoying not to be able to orgasm but it doesn't ever hurt. If guys got blue balls every time we got an erection and couldn't orgasm we would be in pain a lot.

    • if youve never had it, than don't comment on it lol. its tough. it doesn't happen often but when it does, its the worst.

    • Risking serious injury or death.

  • Well, it can be a bit uncomfortable but not really painful I guess.

    In any case he could masturbate so as to relieve the pressure and that would be the solution to the problem.

    • You commenting on how blue balls feels is like me pretending to know what menstrual cramps feel like. Don't even try.
