FOLLOW-UP:

YOUR TESTICLES & YOU:

  • Why are we talking about this?

    • Jerry, Jon, WT and Sean’s unexpected experiences involving their scroti.
    • Validation or why many men (and women) are eager to show their surgical battle scars. (“I’m not hallucinating, am I?”)
    • We’ll have Sean and WT on future shows for follow-up.
  • Here are some unexpected things that we learned:
    • Generally:

      • We all start out as women.
      • Testosterone and Estrogen are VERY similar chemically.
      • Regarding genitalia, men are inside-out women with their own form of fallopian tubes through which testicles descend.
      • A eunuch’s unique position on the LGBTQ spectrum and Jon’s single problem with accepting his brother’s non-binary gender (credentials).
    • Specifically:
      • After an Orchiectomy, a scrotum doesn’t know its balls are gone.
      • After abdominal surgery fluids and/or blood can collect in the scrotum.
      • Scrotal swelling makes it difficult to find the penis (hidin’ from the law).
