From the web: Why Do So Many Movie Characters Get Hit in the Balls?

Here's a funny little article from LA Weekly that I stumbled across a little while ago. It's not too long, and it's very tongue-in-cheek as it tries to answer the age-old question: Why Do So Many Movie Characters Get Hit in the Balls?

Here's a little excerpt:

[Harry] Knowles says, "The only person who doesn't laugh when someone is getting kicked in the balls is the guy getting kicked in the balls. I'd like to talk to the stunt coordinator on these films and see what kind of boner damage actually occurs. Like, what is the cup made of? People are slamming stuff all up in there, and yet at the premiere, these actors walk fine." 
Even though getting kicked in the castanets isn't intrinsically funny, at least it's not usually hazardous to your health. However, as WebMD puts it, a "blunt trauma" to the testicles can cause symptoms as minor as "nausea," "bruising," or "swelling," or it can result in "difficulty urinating," "contusion," and, ick, "degloving." That sounds gentle, like what the champ does after a boxing match, but it actually means "the scrotum can be torn away." So if a guy sustains such an injury, he should see his doctor.
