    Re: Why it hurts when kicked in the junk.

    Playing football and a baseball catcher, It took one shot to the junk for me to always wear a cup.

    I'm surprised how many football players don't wear a cup?$?#? Yet, They all wear mouth guard (it's required in HS) ???

    Yep, took a pop fly to the junk once. I think I may have blacked out for a couple of days. Had a quarter in my pocket at the time which happened to be floating in front when the ball hit. Had a nice quarter sized ring shape on the boys. Lucky I was able to have children.

    One kid on our football team got kicked in the junk by the opposing team's punter when he went to block the football. It swelled up to the size of a softball by the time the game was over and he had to go to the ER after the game.

    SPIKE// • Neuroscience Tuesday: belly buttons, the vagus nerve and other navel gazings

    To be a little more specific - it's due to intense stimulation of the Vagus nerve. Apparently some people can have it triggered by a hit or contact with their belly button too - especially for women.

    Re: Why it hurts when kicked in the junk.

    I recently had a conversation with my seven year old on how to get away from someone who might want to take her. You can imagine how this relates to this thread. I think she definitely got it because she brings it up at least once a week. I think she is itching to try it out. Maybe I should be wearing a cup.
