Don't Drop the Ball

by Andrea Mulder-Slater

“Girls have balls. They’re just a little higher up, that’s all.” 
~Joan Jett 
My husband and I don’t often talk about his boy bits but when we do, I’m usually throwing out questions like, “Hey, do those ever fall out of your underwear”, “How do you fit everything inside your pants?” and, “Can you please put that stuff away now?”

I mean come on; those things aren’t cute. You know I’m right.

Still, I feel for the men, I really do. It can’t be easy, walking around with all that junk.

When I asked my guy what it’s like having a set of testicles, he said, “It’s like having pocket watches permanently attached to your crotch.”


The folks at Tommy John get that, which is why they make men's underwear (as well as undershirts, t-shirts and socks) that make having boy bits more enjoyable, by eliminating the need to constantly make adjustments.

And speaking of Tommy John… during the month of November, they are providing even more support by educating folks about testicular cancer with the help of their limited edition print.

So now, I mustache you to have a look at some balls…

 Nice, right?

And, 5% of all sales coming from this limited edition Mustache and Ball collection will be donated to the Testicular Cancer Foundation, an organization which provides education and support to young men to raise awareness about testicular cancer.

Did You Know?  

Testicular cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in males ages 15-35. That’s nothing to laugh about. It's not known what causes testicular cancer. However, the good news is, testicular cancer has the best prognosis of any cancer when discovered early. As in: if found early before it spreads, testicular cancer is almost always curable. EARLY DETECTION IS KEY!

And – here’s the thing. Testicular cancers are most often self-discovered by patients as a painless or uncomfortable lump in the testicle.

So, let’s get the ball rolling, shall we?

Ladies, get your men to check their balls – at least once a month. It’s not weird, it’s science and it’s easily done in the shower.

So pay attention men, get on it. There might even be some free Tommy John underwear in it for you.
