LOL.. Sorry Seany! LOL I honestly have never heard the terms Brussels sprouts before when referring to the male testicles!

But I must think that in answer to your question there surely must be an enormous amount of nerve endings in these that make them so sensitive to pain upon impact. This area is highly sensitive to all contact weather it be painful or otherwise! Is this not correct!

As far as a man goes to be hit I think would equal a girl falling on the bar of a mans ten speed bicycle bar! Very sensitive indeed, both ways!

I think there are a lot of nerve endings there but I could be wrong!

It is extremely painful makes me cry!!! I don't know how men can take a direct shot down there and not cry! My equiptment may be plumbed differently, but it is still there and a bicycle is a horribly painful fall. especially when the bike is two tall and you cannot straddle it with clearance between your legs. You need to be able to stand flat footed or be awful careful and lean over to get off.. It is the worse pain.....

Hmm.. Well I made the brussel sprouts part.. But they are called "Balls", marbles, meatballs,... etc lol

And why do you think there are lots of nerve endings there? Because it is an important part of the body?

 Yes it most certainly is..LOL Do you agree with the nerve ending  theory or would a passing by testicle expert have a better explanation for us!

They are sensitive so that we will look after them!
What sort of chance would the human race have if we could go around clouting our reproductive bits?
It does worry me when I see the testes of a Bull, ram, goat (no - not jealousy). They seem so vulnerable down there. They've just got to get the occasional knock on a passing tree stump. Owch.

Should they not be retractable? This would save the pain, and be much ....neater!

Your lucky about the pain part... You just are missing out on what an incredible experience it really is to give life to another living breathing human being. to know it is part of you that will carry on when you are gone Hopefully.. Make sure you do a good job!! LOL Remember though weather you are mommy Daddy Uncle or aunt or just plain friends.. You have a huge role to play in teaching children everywhere .. so be a good role model Model for the kids what you want to see in them as adults and they will reflect back at you in your image weather that be good or bad so be careful Eh?
  MAle or female It hurts to get hit..LOL Protect your BRUSSEL SPROUTS or any other vegetables you may be harboring upon your body!!! LOL

Uh OH KAdie, Women have fruit... Melons... OH GOSHHHH the disease has spread to us!!!!! LOL

For the point of view of evolution, your testicles are the most important part of your body. If they are irreparably damaged you will not have any children and therefore your genes will not live on, so you are an evolutionary dead end.

 If it didn't hurt when you damaged them there wouldn't be anything to dissuade you from sliding down banisters, and not jumping off etc etc, so odds are you would make yourself infertile before adulthood and not breed. Hence the people who bred were the ones who's neather regions were quite sensitive so they were careful of them.
