Jealous men have small balls

Many studies have been conducted on animals in attempt to better understand human behaviour. One such study is the comparison of the size of balls (testes) of gorillas and chimpanzees. Gorillas have small balls and are more jealous and territorial than chimpanzees. Gorillas tend to guard their female mates closely, not allowing other males to mate with them. Chimpanzees have huge balls. They are less jealous and territorial.

Sexual jealousy is instinctual. In males, it exists so that the genes of the male stand a higher chance of getting passed on. The gorilla that has smaller balls also produce less sperm than chimpanzees therefore each chance at mating is important. They don't have as much sperm to pass around as the chimpanzees.

The human male has balls somewhere in between the size of the gorilla and chimpanzee. If a human male has small balls, he produces less sperm than a male with bigger balls. In terms of probability, he has a lesser chance of impregnating a female. Therefore, he would have greater tendency towards getting jealous. Whereas if the male has big balls, he can easily produce more sperm to impregnate other females should his mate be taken by another male.

I have not taken note of the size of men's balls. I know men are always interested in comparing penis size but I doubt many men are interested in comparing the size of their balls. I don't take note of the size of men's balls though I noticed that some can't be tea-bagged. So I think a good measure would be whether the woman is able to tea-bag the guy. If she can, it means he has small balls (or the woman has a big mouth). But if you balls are anywhere as big as this man's balls, I don't know what to say!

Yu-Kym,

Have you considered offering to be a proposal writer for PhD candidates?

This topic would be very meaty for a psychology candidate.

A more academic name such as;

'The influence of testicular volume in relation to territorial behavior of male homo-sapiens.'

Thin of the research money one could obtain. With the PhD candidate needing a good ghost writer.

What does Yu-Kym think?

Yu-Kym,

Pity the man with the genital cancer growth. Hate to see such sufferings.

I understand that gorillas mate many many times a day with very quick bursts each time. How does your research reconcile their frequent mating to their having small balls?

Small balls, big balls...hah! if u dont have big cars, big houses...girls will say "balls to you!" Am i right about women these days?

David, I'll get bored writing formal documents!

curious cat, the amount of sperm released may not be as much as the chimps.

Yu-Kym,

True writing the formal part is boring at best.

However with your style of writing for sexual topics the actual report would be anything but boring.

Me thinks bold & provocative would likely be the descriptors.

So because the sperms released are in small dosages, the gorillas dont have to have big balls?

Does that sound plausible for the reason why gorillas have small balls?

The size of the balls may have nothing to do with intensity of jealousy?

curious cat, but chims also have sex frequently.

It's possible that the size of the balls may have nothing to do with intensity of jealousy. It's just a theory. It may be wrong.

oh ok. just thought the gorillas stood out (again pun intended lol) as having the most frequent sex and yet the smallest penis size and testicles.

i think its likely got nothing to do with jealousy.

The testicles main function is to produce testosterone.
If it's not as big as it use to be, it means it's not producing enough testosterone which is the main hormone to higher sex drive. Or the men could be taking synthetic drugs like steroids and there will be increase in testosterone in his body and the testicles will shrink, taking a short vacation break from producing testosterone for the body.

Rock Hard,

You mean the bigger the testicles, the more the secretion of semen in these two bags? lol So a man with bigger testicles will have copious ejaculation of semen?

So again size does matter? Except when the man is on steriods or has a hernia condition? lol
