Throughout my time on the internet I’ve learned a lot of things. Many of these are from links to wikipedia, which turn into long trawls through endless related links where you find out lots of stuff you would never need to know, but it still intrigues you.
I’ve often wondered how testicles don’t get twisted up as they feel pretty free bouncing around in their scrotum.
I was bored and happened to be on wikipedia, so I cast my doubts relating the graphic nature of images pertinent to the scrotum aside, manned up, entered “scrotum”, and clicked “go” on the wiki search.
This is what I found while looking at a diagram of a dissected human scrotum.
Basically there is a dividing wall in the scrotum, which stops them interfering with each other when you get a bit enthusiastic in your pounding missions. Apparently they’re called “scrotal halves” – innovative. It reminds me of how your diaphragm separates your heart and lungs from your stomach and intestines.
Whilst this is incredibly logical, for some reason I’d never thought of such a thing existing, but now I know.
I have also heard of testicular torsion, which is when they get twisted together, but I am currently unsure of how that works.
The more you know!
