You’d think after spending several million years evolving from a clutch of single-celled organisms to walking on two feet, along with a few thousand years trying to live with one another, we would have found every possible way to pleasurably insert each and every part of our bodies into another person’s.
Ball Sex: Having A Ball With Your Balls
Yet here we are in 2022, and someone claims to have found a completely new way to use, with a little bit of help from modern technology, testicles for penetrative fun.
While I’m not going to specifically explore the Balldo’s development or what using it is like–for both, please check back for my upcoming review–I thought it would be worth talking about how it’s a (giggle) member of a long line of testicular toys, albeit with an innovative approach.
In addition to important safety tips, ways to see for yourself if ball sex will make you all hot and/or bothered … or not.
Safely Juggling your Balls
As those with them will more than likely attest, fondling, caressing, sometimes tugging, twisting, stretching, or even on occasion, slapping testicles can be pleasurable.
However, as opposed to the penis itself, which those millions of years of evolution have made somewhat durable, the testicles predominantly aren’t and are generally very sensitive.
So despite me rattling off things like fondling and slapping, you should avoid excess tension, torsion, impacts, or squeezing as there’s a risk of injury, including the permanent variety.

As for how to tell when you’ve crossed the line from pleasurable to an emergency room visit, depending on the person and their pain or pleasure tolerances, lingering discomfort, unusual discharges, or swelling are often signs you’ve gone too far.
But what’s best is not to get to that point in the first place. Follow these tips to make sure everyone stays healthy and happy:
- Stay in constant communication with the person you’re playing with.
- Take it slow, easy, and gentle to begin with.
- Listen to what your body’s telling you and communicate that to your partner.
- If anything goes wrong, get medical assistance immediately. The longer you wait, the harder it could be heal or recover.
- Afterward, pay attention to any unexpected aches or pains as well as treating your testicles kindly–like giving yourself time to recover and avoiding things like overly-tight underwear.
Loving your Balls
Now, we don't want you absolutely terrified of playing with them, so let me say that as long as you keep safety in mind while not letting your passions run too wild and too fast, there’s a long and arousing list of things you can safely do with testicles that are oh so pleasurable.
Begin with gentle tugging. This is a pleasure demonstrated by how many people find pulling on them to be sexually pleasurable and often extra so during masturbation.
If you want to try this yourself, begin by spending quality time with yours, such as with some initial exploratory fondling to get the lay of your land. Slowly progressing to slow, steady tugs while avoiding sharp, jerky, or too-extensive movements.
The pleasures of pulling on the balls or scrotum are also why toys like ball stretchers or other leather, latex, or steel appliances are so popular as either by their design or the materials they’re made out of can provide that same kind of stretching sensation.
Testicle play has another big allure. Not only can it provide additional stimulation, but with some practice–especially in conjunction with activities like prostate or BDSM play–it’s possible to have amazingly potent sexual experiences and perhaps orgasm without needing to achieve or maintain an erection.
This is what spurred the development of the Balldo, as its phallus shape allows it to be used for ball sex, penetrative sex without the wearer needing to be hard.
That and it’s a remarkably arousing ball-stretching toy with the ability to simultaneously and satisfactorily tug downwards as well as side-to-side.
While an entertaining and novel approach to testicle play, the Balldo isn’t the only ballgame as more times than not, it seems like there are more toys and methods to use them than there are people with balls.
If you’re confused by this overwhelming selection, take my advice and pick the most flexible, least complex, lowest stretch, and lightest weight to try first.
Most flexible, because you never want to get yourself into something you can’t quickly get out, least complex for precisely the same reason, and lowest stretch and lightest weight to reduce the possibility of accidentally overdoing it until you get used to handling these sorts of toys.
Once you have done some exploration, you can move on to chastity devices. They can be amazing fun to use, but if you’re just looking to have fun with your own or another person’s balls without necessarily keeping an erection at bay, there are tons of other toys available that’ll do the trick and may be less complicated to use.
The Balls are in Your Court
The Balldo clearly shows that even after all those years and years of evolving and attempting to civilize ourselves, we still have exciting sexual discoveries - like ball sex - yet to make.
While at the same time, it celebrates how there’s a long, long, long history of testicular pleasures behind it.
Which, with a measure of safety, a hefty amount of caution, and a heaping helping of body awareness, you can thoroughly enjoy for yourself–or with a playmate sporting their own pair of cojones.
