Vasocongestion Lover’s Nuts Aching Symptoms

“Blue balls” (Vasocongestion) or Lover’s Nuts is a slang term meaning referring to testicular sore aching discomfort or testes pain disorder condition that may occur when the blood that fills the vessels in a male’s penis and testicles (or balls) genital area during sexual arousal is not relieved by climaxing that includes the orgasm sensation and ejaculation of the semen sperm fluid.

Normally after guys finishes and ejaculates, the blood flows out of his penis and balls faster than if he does not ejaculate.  If ejaculation does not occur there may be a lingering sensation of heaviness, aching, pain, soreness or discomfort in the testicles due to the continued vasocongestion.
This unpleasant feeling has popularly been called blue balls, perhaps because of the bluish tint that appears when blood engorges the vessels in the testicles. Although blue balls in men can feel uncomfortable and painful, it goes away fairly quickly.

Most men have been socialized to ejaculate after they get an erection during sexual activity. Failure to ejaculate and to feel climaxing orgasm often adds frustration and disappointment to the reality of the physical sensation.

Some guys find that masturbation is a viable solution and are realizing that ejaculation is not a requirement in every sexual situation. This attitude allows both men and their partners to relax more and to learn that pleasure and meaning can exist without having to climax with ejaculation and orgasm during every sexual encounter.

Wikipedia: Blue balls is a slang term for the condition of temporary fluid congestion (vasocongestion) in the testicles accompanied by testicular pain, caused by prolonged and unsatisfied sexual arousal in the human male.

The term is thought to have originated in the United States, first appearing in 1916. Some urologists call the condition “epididymal hypertension”. The condition is not experienced by all males.
