Most men who have had one or both balls removed at some point consider prosthetic testicular implants.

- I'll look at myself in the mirror after a shower, I'm like, "What the hell, where are my balls? "Where's my ball?"
- Every once in a while, when I'm in a change room or in a shower, I have a moment of thinking, "Oh yeah, I have one ball. "I wonder if anybody's ever seen that before."
- I don't need balls, I've got them, right? In my head, my own psychic balls.
- There is stigma about losing a testicle. Cause I think people base everyone on their looks and what they have.
- With men, it tends to be more of an invisible shame. It's not unless someone gets past the belt line that they're actually gonna find out what's really going on in there. But you yourself know.
- It increased my prospects for some strange reason, because it always became, "You have a fake testicle? "How strange, can I see it?"
- A woman, a guy without balls, if he can, she's fine with it. It's not a big deal.
- They only have one one nut, then they only have one nut. What am I gonna do? Insert one for them?
- The following question is, what do you do? Do you replace it with an artificial testicle? Do you go with one testicle and then just love your body and expect that other people are gonna love your body too?
- So, to me, it was kind of like, "Okay sure, what the hell, I might as well get it done."
- Why would I ever want to do this a second time if I didn't need to?
- Where is that patient at in their life? Do they care about how their body looks or are they more just sort of, don't really want anything artificial in my body because I want to keep a close eye on any abnormal change. I'm not gonna judge a guy for getting a fake ball any more than I'm gonna judge a woman for getting a fake boob. It's your choice, right? And we have the technology. We have the technology.
- So we do have different types of prosthetics. What we typically try and do is match them as best as possible to the natural one. Can fill them with varying degrees of saline to get sort of a firmness, and they're placed right inside the scrotum. The thing that I try and emphasize to men who are getting these is that it's never gonna be exactly the same as your natural testicle, the one you previously had, or its partner on the other side. You know those stress ball, when you're really stressed, and you, they're like that.
- I would basically be at a party. And say, "Hey, do you wanna see this trick?" Like, "Sure." And I'd pull it out and make people press on it. And it would just get everybody like "What is going on? "How could you not feel it?" I'm aware of the fact that it doesn't feel anything. It's sort of taking up space. But everything else around, against it makes me feel whole.
- Hey hey hey hey hey.
- Generally, men don't talk about their balls with each other very much.
- It's kind of like, let's not talk about it, let's go grab a beer.
- Especially with your penis, because that's what makes you a man, right? So if there's something wrong there, then there's something wrong with you as a man.
- And the more a man avoids asking for help, every time he doesn't, he's reinforcing more and more, the notion that it's a good idea to do that.
- And this is why I didn't see the importance of going to the doctor when I found the lump. Because I was brought up in this household where, if it doesn't hurt, you deal with it.
- How you doing? Having a testicular mass, for some people, they're ashamed to kind of bring it up, even to their family doctor. And there could be a lot of factors. Fear that it could be testicular cancer, it could be a shyness around having to do that exam, even.
- I was raised by my mom and my sister, and I've heard the conversations they have about their bodies. And it's very much, like, everything's on the table.
- Whereas men, it's more just, eh, sweep it under the rug. It's over, I made it through. Never want to talk about it again.
- So we're gay men, so we're okay with talking about balls. That's all we do. We talk about balls, dicks, butt holes, muscles.
- Muscles and Madonna.
- And Cher.
