Question: Testicular muscle

 Angelus - Mon Sep 20, 2004 7:46 pm

Hi. I'm a 25 year old hispanic male. My height is about 5'10"-5'11", and weight about 210-215. I have an average penis size 5 or 6 and a half inches. My srtoum however, seems very small and tight. My scrotum does hang but not very much. When I get sexually aroused my testicles no longer hang... AT ALL! I was wondering if there was any way to make my scrotum not so tight and have my testicles hang low like the average male.

User avatar Hello Angelus,

The scrotum contains a muscle known as the 'cremasteric' muscle which surrounds the testicles like a sling. Upon contraction it lifts the testicles upwards. This is normal and can be stimulated by stroking the scrotal skin or sexual arousal.

I would advise you to get a sperm test and appear infront of an andrologist.
