Why do men adjust & scratch their balls
Seriously, I'd like a 2nd opinion other than "to stir the tanks"

It's disturbing to see a professional man stand around and do that. Hell they might as well pick their noise or scratch their ass.

3. Then go someplace private and scratch those things
It just looks pervy when you do it in public!

8. What's the difference between...
scratching your back in public vs. scratching your balls?
A scratch is a scratch.

That said, I usually try to do it discretely when the need arises.

6. If I had those things or a penis, I would have chopped them off ages ago
Not keen on using something other than my brains to do the thinking!

16. Oh Lynne, I must share with you
a true story. The prospective parent asked the doctor why they spank the baby after its born. The Doctor replied, to knock the Dick's off the stupid ones.

12. You answered your own question; because they're men.
It's as natural to a man as it is to a cat or dog. Some men develop the inhibition to scratch/adjust
their balls in public and some men don't.

28. I've seen it several times in groups of people
On more that one occasion I've seen a woman reach into her shirt and move stuff around or pull out an underwire. It was a little awkward cause I didnt want to stare at her while she was doing it (but I really wanted to) so I had to pretend I didnt notice.

23. It depends.
It could be weather related. In hot summer weather, your balls can stick to your leg or get itchy. Depending on what underwear you're wearing, your balls can tangled up in them. Also men sometimes accidentally sit on their balls (It hurts, trust me) and adjusting can remove that threat.

I would try to do it in a bathroom stall or when no one is looking but it's really no different than a woman adjusting her bra or boobs in public. It's about comfort.

25. I used to work with a guy who acted like he'd been bit or something.
He'd do a little jump back at the same time he was grabbing his. Thing is, we worked in retail and he'd do it in front of customers too. I was embarrassed for him.

Because they can. :evilgrin:

What annoys me even more is when they try to hide it by playing pocket pool. That just kills me. Just scratch yer damn balls and be done with it. It takes 5 times longer to play pocket pool to scratch 'em than it does to just scratch 'em.

30. Too make sure they are still there!
All these comments about itching and comfort is just plain BS.
The sad truth is occasionally we are struck with the terrible thought that maybe they are falling off and we desperatly need to check right away.
