I can tell you from experience that when A women falls on a bar, bike bar uneven parallel bars etc on the crotch area... It is excruciating and doubles you over and can take you out just like you... Now I do believe we have slightly different set up..LOL But when skin parts at impact we are just as exposed as you!

I have fallen on several boys bikes and the uneven parallel bars in High school.. High school as I recall I was on the floor for at least about ten minutes and literally bruised like crazy down there for weeks . It hurt for several days not like the first ten minutes or so. hurt to sit  a bit.. bicycles same thing, very painful... not good! You boys seem to have more to damage exposed at least certain body parts for us in the instance of a kick may offer protection where the bar running the same direction as openings causes more of a direct hit and is painful.

It proves God is female. No male would have put them on the outside!  [:(!]

Oh, lately I've heard that one can die from their testicles being hit so badly. Is this true?

i think they're actually on the outside because the sperm needs to be a different temperature than the rest of your body or they'll die. but that doesn't make sense because they go into a woman and can live for a while... hmmm

the actual process that makes sperm needs to be a lower temperature than body temperature

That is interesting.. I have heard that before also. I just don't know the how to's of why  that is!

Just a thought...

When a female is at the prime time for fertilisation her body temperature rises by .5 to 1.6 degrees and the prime time to conceive is approx 3 days before the high. The male testes are around 1 degree lower, I think!

Perhaps there is a relationship and the optimum average temperatures at the prime time to conceive should be as close to normal body temp as possible?

Hope that makes some sense.

Gwrr.. How about putting the testicles inside the body, like women?

I knew that Seany is a clever kid!
This is a very 'scientific' question:
I'm surprised that he did not take off
for a quick 'wiki'flight...he is so fast
that would have got the answer in seconds!

Temperature regulation
In boreoeutherian land mammals (but not the xenarthran or afrotherian land mammals) the testes are located outside of the body, suspended by the spermatic cord within the scrotum. It has been suggested [1] that the ancestor of the boreoeutherian mammals was a small mammal that required very large testes (perhaps rather like those of a hamster) for sperm competition and thus had to place its testes outside the body. This led to enzymes involved in spermatogenesis, spermatogenic DNA polymerase beta and recombinase activities evolving a unique temperature optimum, at a degree somewhat less than core body temperature (37 C or 98.6 F for humans). When the boreoeutherian mammals then diversified into forms that were larger and/or did not require intense sperm competition they were stuck with enzymes that operated best at cooler temperatures and had to keep their testicles outside the body. An alternative argument is that the cooler temperature of the testes allows for more efficient fertile spermatogenesis. Another argument is that it protects the testes from abdominal cavity pressure changes caused by jumping and galloping. [2]. As external testes would increase drag many boreotherian aquatic mammals have internal testes which are kept cool by special circulatory systems that cool the arterial blood going to the testes using by placing the arteries near veins bringing cooled venous blood from the skin.

The cremasteric muscle is part of the spermatic cord. When this muscle contracts, the cord is shortened and the testicle is moved closer up toward the body, which provides slightly more warmth to maintain optimal testicular temperature. When cooling is required, the cremasteric muscle relaxes and the testicle is lowered away from the warm body and is able to cool. This phenomenon is known as the cremasteric reflex. It also occurs in response to stress (the testicles rise up toward the body in an effort to protect them in a fight), and there are persistent reports that relaxation indicates approach of orgasm. There is a noticeable tendency to also retract during orgasm.

The testicles can also be lifted voluntarily using the pubococcygeus muscle, which partially activates related muscles. This can sometimes be triggered by tightening or sucking in the stomach or abdomen. The testicles have a tendency to perspire profusely.

Monotremes, armadillos, sloths, elephants, and rhinoceroses have low body temperatures and do not have external scrotal sacs; their testes remain within the abdomen.[3] Marine mammals also have internal testes, but it has recently been shown (eg, for dolphins) that they use elaborate vascular networks to provide the necessary temperature lowering for proper operation.

Animals other than mammals do not have externalized testicles. Birds, despite having very high core body temperatures have internal testes; it was once theorized that birds used their air sacs to cool the testes internally, but later studies revealed that birds' testes function at core body temperature.

Actually just before ejaculation they can pull themselves inside the body to protect themsleves from over the top thrust actions of the owner. :)

Womens' bits are internal and to damage them equivalently you'd need to suffer really quite fearsome trauma to a large number of other tissues first. I think they are likely to be equivalently sensitive, but it's harder to find out!
