INTERESTING FACTS.

Byline: DR MIRIAM STOPPARD

about the testicles

1 Avocado is the ancient Aztec word for testicle.

2 Your testicles can increase in size by as much as 50% prior to ejaculation, due to an increase in blood flow.

3 You feel testicle trauma inside your belly region because the nerve endings leading away from your testicles are attached to your stomach.

4 Your cremaster muscle protects your testicles when you feel threatened, by moving them closer to your body. You can test your cremasteric reflex by stroking your inner thigh. If your testicles rise, it is working properly.

5 Your left testicle is more likely to be larger and hang lower inside your scrotum. If your right testicle is the one that's bigger and hangs lower, you're more likely to be left-handed.

6 Your penis has more nerve endings than your testicles, but your testes have many more pain receptors.
