Do you have big balls? Do girls like huge balls? Are big testicles normal? These are just a few of the thoughts that revolve around the world of big testicles. We’re going to do our best to give you the answers! So, if you’re one of the men with big balls, read on!

Now, you don’t have to have big balls to understand that men with big balls have long had that ‘top dog’ status. Why? They’re just testicles, right? It’s all biology!

The point is that huge balls may not be the subject of a sports night with the guys the way boob problems are for girls, but they are definitely a subject men are researching online.

We’re looking at what is normal in the world of testicles, how girls feel about ball size, and everything else that men with big balls want to know. [Read: What do women really think about your penis?]

In the world of balls, what is normal anyway?

Having some thoughts about your downtown twins? Some other completely natural ball-related concerns include having one testicle bigger than the other, one hanging lower, and a loose, tightened, or veiny scrotum.

All bodies come in different shapes and sizes, including those huge balls of yours, or otherwise. Body positivity aside, the average testicle size is 1″ wide and 2-3″ long. So, basically anything over or under these stats would cause your balls to drop *no pun intended* above or below the “norm.”

The bottom line is this – as long as your testicles aren’t showing any signs of problems *more on that shortly*, there’s nothing to worry about. [Read: Healthy testicles: 7 tests to keep your balls in check]

The pros and cons for men with big balls

Do you want the bad news or the good news first? As it turns out, there are plenty of pros and cons to having larger-than-life testicles. While no man will ever match the size of a whale’s balls *thank goodness for that*, here’s what you’re in for as a human male with big testes.

1. PRO – The bigger the balls, the more sperm you have

That’s right! If you’re looking to spread your seed and make life, big balls down there means you have more sperm to give and more of a chance to impregnate your lucky lady! [Read: 12 amazing facts you didn’t know about semen]

2. PRO – Increased sex drive

Given your natural endowment, you may be sporting a higher sex drive. Of course, the ups and downs of life can cause you to feel less horny at some times than others, but on the whole, men with big balls tend to have a higher sex drive.

3. PRO – Increased self-confidence

Admit it… your boys are big and you’re proud to show them off. Go ahead – hold your head high!

4. CON – Fatherhood may not be your forte

While you may have enough sperm to go around in those big clunkers, some scientists suggest that men with smaller testicles are the ones who make “father of the year” material. Men with bigger balls allegedly have poorer parenting skills than men with a smaller sack. This is linked to a decrease in testosterone.

5. CON – Promiscuity

Some researchers suggest that men with larger testicles are more likely to cheat. Why? Too much testosterone kicking around!

Your personal preference of getting laid may suggest this bullet point belongs in the “pro” section… but we think your partner would disagree! [Read: Why do men cheat? The 3 biggest reasons and 27 excuses men believe]

6. CON – An increased chance of addiction to alcohol

One study done by the University of Florence suggests that men with big testicles are more likely to be alcoholics.

7. CON – High blood pressure risk

The same study says that big balls equal high blood pressure in males. That’s not good news considering the fact that increased blood pressure is linked to many serious health issues, including heart problems.

8 – CON – An increased risk of heart disease

Research on 2,800+ Italian men was conducted for more than 7 years concerning sexual dysfunction. The findings? Men with larger testicles had a higher chance of developing heart disease other cardiovascular health issues.

9. CON – They’re pretty hard to hide

If you are one of the men with big balls, you’re probably very familiar with this problem – huge balls are hard to hide. When you’re at the beach, they’re on show *albeit under fabric, thankfully*. Perhaps you wear skinny jeans – they’re right there in your face *not literally*.

Unless they don baggy jeans forever, men with big balls will always have some wardrobe issues. [Read: What are blue balls? A full guide to blue balls & real experiences]

What do girls think of men with big balls?

Do women like big balls? This common question stems from the ol’ “bigger is better” notion. We surveyed several different women for their opinions on larger-than-life testicles and here’s what we found:

“I honestly have never noticed the size of my partner’s balls… ever.” – Brittany, 23

“I dated one guy with microscopic balls. Microscopic! I kid you not. Okay, obviously I’m kidding but they were so small I questioned whether he could legit impregnate anyone. You know how those Beta Fish are put in those fish tanks roughly the size of a stick of butter? That’s how I pictured his sperm. Down to the real question: did I give a crap? Nah. We boned anyway and it was G-R-E-A-T.” – Michelle, 19 [Read: The complete guide to saggy balls and what women think of them]

“I feel like the bigger the balls, the more gross and hairy and smelly they are. Or maybe I just keep dating guys who are opposed to showers. Still, not a fan of balls—period!” – Amanda, 29

“Big balls are great. More to love! My favorite is when they slap against you during doggy. Big, small, who really cares about sack size, anyway?” -Haley, 30 [Read: Sex with an uncircumcised man, myths and all]

As you can see, there is no solid answer either way. Most women aren’t the biggest fan of balls in general and they’re vary rarely on display anyway. Most women are more concerned about penis size than ball size, and even then, it’s more about what you do with it than the size.

Perhaps rather than worrying about your big balls, you should just learn to love them. If you don’t have big balls and you’re reading this in envy, just love what you have too! Balls serve a function, they’re not really there to be attractive. [Read: How to cure blue balls: The best ways to have happy testicles again]

When should you be concerned?

Still concerned about having big testicles? Stay on top of any health concerns you may have by having regular ball exams. A testicular exam can be performed by your family doctor, or at home, riding solo! Here’s the low-down on how to perform a self-exam.

1. What to do

Pro tip: move your penis out of the way before getting down to the boys! Examining one ball at a time, roll your testicle between your thumb and fingers.

2. What to look for

Any lumps, bumps, or changes in consistency. Remember, your balls may change shape or feel occasionally and you’re looking for new changes or anything which simply doesn’t feel right to you.

Become familiar with what is normal for you and report any changes. It’s time to become best friends with your balls! [Read: 10 male masturbation toys that are so much better than your hand]

3. Practice makes perfect

The more you perform the at-home ball grab, the more familiar you’ll become with your testicles. This will make it easier to notice if anything about your sack has changed. Schedule an appointment with your doctor if you do feel any lumps or changes.
