Can a testicle really explode due to extreme sexual tension?
It was time to roll up my sleeves and do some serious journalistic research. I went to Google and typed in "exploding testicle", with the following results:

-The penis costume (which was borrowed from Planned Parenthood Waterloo Region) was damaged during the shoot. The beach ball that was inside the left testicle exploded when 'Penis' was doing the final "Body Urges" dance move.
Martin was obsessed with Monica Lewinski. He carried her picture in his billfold and plastered his office cubicle with her likeness. His desire for the presidential aide, who became an instant celebrity when President Clinton admitted to having an affair with her, drove him to heavy drinking on New Year's Eve.
Walking through the streets of Milwaukee, visiting each bar he could find, Martin eventually decided on which bar he would choose to ring in the new year. Entering the tavern, Martin found he was just about as inebriated as the other patrons. After a few more drinks, he became delusional. A junoesque brunette entered the bar just as the bartender was counting down to the new year. Then, at the stroke of midnight, it happened!
Martin, who was watching the brunette enter, started shouting at her "Monica, Monica, over here, baby!" As the crowd counted down, Martin made his way toward the unsuspecting ersatz Miss Lewinski. Martin was so sexually excited and aroused that the unspeakable happened.
Martin's left testicle exploded! Somehow the exploding testicle set off a chain reaction that paramedics couldn't explain. The exploding testicle burst with such force that Martin was killed instantly!

“It is, unfortunately, only too clear that if the individual is not truly regenerated in spirit, society cannot be, either,” Carl Jung wrote 40 years ago in The Undiscovered Self. “For society is the sum total of individuals in need of redemption.” Jung’s observation suggests the importance of individual human dignity to the ongoing health of society. At a coffee shop on Maryland Parkway last week, Bob Thomas indirectly made the same case when he talked about how his right testicle exploded.
Not that his testicle actually exploded. But that’s how it felt—a burst of pain so intenst that it made him sick to his stomach.
That’s not the funny part.
The funny part is how, after an initial scan at a QuickCare, Thomas (not his real name) was told he’d have to wait two months to see a urologist—the sort of doctor who knows what’s broken down when a guy complains of an “exploded nut.” Which sounds like it could be serious, so why the long wait?
Because Thomas, a part-time retail worker, doesn’t have health insurance.
“Two months,” growled one of Thomas’ friends, also at the table. “By that time, you could be dead.”
Thomas puffs on his cigarette. “I’m not waiting till June.”
The thing is, without health insurance he’s got two choices: Wait until June or hit the Internet for information on self-surgery.
