"Blue balls," which is properly called "vasocongestion", is a discomfort in the male pelvic area caused by sexual arousal going unrelieved by ejaculation. The cure for "blue balls," obviously, is to ejaculate. Only either ejaculate by sex with partner or handjob/masterbation can releave this sexual (male) problem. Thanks.

Can women develop blue balls?

No they cant as the dont have testicles.Blue balls is the slang term for a congested prostate or vasocongestion, the condition of temporary fluid congestion in the testicles and prostate region caused by prolonged sexual arousal in the human male. It is often accompanied by a cramp-like ache of prostatic congestion and pain/tenderness or edema of the testes, and is misconceptionally believed to have the symptom of a blue tinged scrotum (from the notion that blue equals pain, as in a bruise or black eye, which can also appear blue). Weinzimer and Thornton suggested calling it "epididymal hypertension(Source Wikipedia)

What are the stages of ejaculation?

Phase 1 of the Male Sexual Response - Excitement In response to sexual stimuli (whether psychological in the form of sexual thoughts or fantasies, or physical in the form of physical stimulation) the process of vasocongestion occurs, where more blood flows into the penis than is flowing out, and the result will usually be that a man will get an erection. How long this takes, and what the erection feels like will differ from man to man, and for the same man over time.Physical changes may include: -There are also changes in the scrotum and testes, with the testes increasing in size and the scrotum elevating, coming closer to the body.-The skin may become flushed; men may experience heightened sensitivity in parts of their body, like the nipples.-Some increase in heart rate, blood pressure, and muscle tension.Phase 2 of the Male Sexual Response - Plateau With continued sexual stimulation this phase represents the time between the initial arousal and excitement, up until orgasm. For many men the plateau phase is very short, but this is the phase that men can extend as a way of controlling premature ejaculation.Physical changes during this phase may include: -An increase in the size of the head of the penis, and the head may also change color, becoming purplish.-The Cowper's gland secretes fluid, often referred to as pre-cum, which comes out of the tip of the penis.-The testes move further in towards the body, and increase in size.-There may be a sex flush, muscle tension, increase in heart rate and rising blood pressure.Phase 3 of the Male Sexual Response - Orgasm Masters and Johnson further divided the orgasmic phase for men into two separate stages. In the first stage: -Contractions in the vas deferens, seminal vesicles, and the prostate causes seminal fluid ("come" or ejaculate) to collect in a pool at the base of the penis, in the urethra. This collection is usually felt as a "tickling" type sensation. In the second stage of the orgasmic phase:-Contractions of muscles occur in a "throbbing" manner around the urethra, and propel ejaculate through the urethra and out of the body.-These contractions (which occur at different speeds, and in different amounts) are usually what are experienced as highly pleasurable feelings of release. Phase 4 of the Male Sexual Response - ResolutionResolution phase refers to the period of time immediately following an orgasm, when the body begins to return to its "normal" state. This phase includes:-The loss of the erection as the blood flows out of the penis, which happens in two stages over the period of a few minutes.-The scrotum and testes return to normal size.-A general feeling of relaxation.

What is blue balling?

"Blue Balls" is the pain a male human being allegedly gets in his groin when he is very close to ejaculating but the stimulation stops before he ejaculates. However, blue balls is simply a myth that some males use to receive sexual favors from gullible/compassionate females. Most men/boys, if not all, seem to live their entire lives without experiencing this "phenomenon." Indeed, some even enjoy being repeatedly brought to the verge of orgasm without release.-Sorry to burst your bubble, but "blue balls" happen to be a real issue for some men. I speak from personal experience; the first being when I was 19. I am 31 now, married & faithful going on 4 years-so I am obviously not using it as an excuse to convince my wife to sleep with me! FYI, I still have the problem of blue balls once in a great while; not often, but I wanted to clear up this "myth" answer previously offered. It is a sensation which is hard to describe, but it is indeed painful nonetheless. I have experienced this "phenomenon" around 7 or 8 times in my life, and 2 of those have been recent. Even if it may be a ploy used for sex by a lot of teen boys/men, regardless, it is a real (and temporary) condition which goes away within a couple hours, with or without sexual release. I hope this clears up any misconceptions people may have with this elusive subject.~To add on to the correction above me. Blue balls has a scientific name: vascocongestion.
