Dudes Are Swelling Their Ballsacks With Saline At Parties

People do all sorts of wild things to their bodies in pursuit of attention, but this one is above and beyond the call of duty. A reporter for Vice went to a sex party (you know, as people from Vice are wont to do) and was confronted with the disturbing sight of a dude injecting saline into his scrotum to give himself massively overinflated balls. Smelling a story, he dove deep into the world of extreme inflation and told the world what he saw.

Saline is a popular material for temporary inflation because it’s basically sterile – just salt and water – and the body will re-absorb it fairly quickly without any notable long-term effects. Of course, you’re still stretching your poor skin farther than it was ever intended to go, but at least the insides are cool. Scrotal inflation has been a popular party trick in the extreme sex scene for several decades, first by use of vacuum pumps and then by injections.

So what’s the appeal? First and foremost, it’s about getting a reaction. These kidns of parties are as much about performance as they are about pleasure, and strutting around with a pair of balls the size of grapefruits is a hell of a way to get attention. Others feel like the bigger, beefier balls make them feel more powerful and masculine. Whatever the reason, it’s quite the thing to think about.
