We all pretty much know it hurts like hell to get kicked in the balls.
When it comes to injury susceptibility, the testicles are low-hanging fruit. We all pretty much know it hurts like hell to get kicked in the balls. Or for your testicles to endure any similar trauma — whether it's catching an errant soccer ball with your crotch, a playful nut-punch gone wrong, or even just a gentle flick. But have you ever stopped to wonder why? BuzzFeed Health reached out to Dr. Seth Cohen, assistant professor in the department of urology at New York University, and Dr. Landon Trost, assistant professor of urology and head of male infertility and andrology at the Mayo Clinic, to understand more about just why a blow to the ‘nads is so uniquely and painfully unpleasant. New Line Cinema / Via itsyregi.com The first thing you need to know is that the testicles are so sensitive because they’re very important. Our bodies have various ways of ensuring that our most important parts are kept out of harm's way. For example, the brain is protected by the skull. The ovaries, crucial to reproduction, are inside the body and further protected by the pelvic bone. On the other hand, testicles — which produce sperm and testosterone, making them essential for reproduction — lack protective armor like the skull and are external, making them ~low-hanging fruit~ when it comes to injury susceptibility. But testicles have something the brain doesn't: pain fibers. Lots of them. The genitals have a high number of nerves per surface area, says Trost, which makes them more sensitive and allows you to feel things more discriminately than you would on other, less sensitive parts of your body, like your back. Additionally, the brain devotes a lot of space to processing what the genitals feel, even though they're a relatively small part of the body. Just think about how gently you can touch the testicles and still cause intense sensation. So, in the same way that cuts on the lips or fingers often hurt more than, say, a cut in the middle of the back, “injuries to the penis and scrotum are more tender,” Trost tells BuzzFeed Health. Twitter: @miguuelmata Also, the testicles hail from a land far far away from your crotch (i.e. your abdomen). After sustaining a blow to the testicles, you might have a stomach ache or feel pain ripping through your abdomen. One of the reasons for this probably has something to do with the fact that your testicles weren't always where they typically end up, just behind and underneath the penis, says Cohen. The testicles actually start developing in the abdomen, just underneath the kidneys. They start to descend just before birth, making their way from the abdominal cavity to the scrotum by way of a passage called the inguinal canal, and are typically in the scrotum by birth or within the first year of life. What this means is that the testicles' nerve fibers travel from the scrotum [...]

Be an advocate for your child.
“Autistic children can learn anything and do anything with practice and patience. Don’t give up on them.” Oh, a quick note: Autism spectrum disorder will mean something different for each kid, parent, and family. And not all of these tips will be useful for everyone, so take whatever you think is useful and leave the rest. Be an advocate for your child. "Fight for your child, because often times no one else will. Don't be afraid to speak up if you feel something is right/wrong." —paigeb47204b628 FOX / Via giphy.com Add structure to your routine by timing specific activities. "My now-teenage child was given a diagnosis for PDDNOS (pervasive developmental delay, not otherwise specified) at 3 years old, which means that there are many identified symptoms but not enough or at a severity to give an Asperger's diagnosis. The one thing that seems to have been the biggest help is having a timed structure to every activity, whether it's how long you expect it to take or a boundary you've set based on your child's limits. So not just saying, 'We're going to Sara's party,' but instead, 'We're going to a birthday party for one hour, OK?' You can even give them a specific time, like from 1:30 to 2:30. Or, if you're going grocery shopping and it takes 45 minutes, say so, and stick to it as much as possible. Also saying how much time is remaining is immensely helpful with meltdowns related to change. Knowing there's five minutes left to play gives time to wind down the play, so that you didn't have to stop abruptly in the middle of it." —ecocrafty FOX / Via giphy.com But also remember to be flexible when something unexpected comes up. "It's a delicate balance between following the routine and staying flexible. What I've learned the most is to follow their lead. Sometimes we have a ton of errands to run but they're just not having a good day, so we don't do it. Allowing them to be able to say when they can't handle something and respecting that makes all the difference in the world." —tiffanyb4cdb6b01d TV Land / Via giphy.com View Entire List › [...]

Have you ever gotten a sunburn that was so bad, it was actually painful to look at?
Ouch. Have you ever gotten a sunburn that was so bad, it was actually painful to look at? "Irish skin at its finest... 15 minutes in the sun." —weezmcdeez buzzfeed.com Maybe you accidentally fell asleep by the pool, and you woke up looking like a strawberry. "Absolutely no filter on this photo. This was taken in 2008, back when I thought going tanning twice in one day was a cool and sexy idea. I'm grimacing because it actually hurt to smile. You could have fried an egg on my face." —christinapo buzzfeed.com Perhaps you're one of those people who goes outside for a few minutes and immediately changes 50 shades of red. "As someone who starts burning within 15 minutes, I immediately knew that the day I forgot to wear sunscreen to the beach would be the worst day of my life. Four hours later, this is what I looked like. And three months later, you can still see it. Epic fail." —mollygreggs buzzfeed.com Or maybe you entrusted a friend to apply sunscreen on you, but they purposefully drew weird shapes on your body instead. —katekpp buzzfeed.com View Entire List › [...]
