The Possible Downside to a Hard Penis
Hard Penises and Blue Balls

Blue balls is the slang term referring to the color of the balls during vasocongestion and also to refer to the male feeling "blue" because he isn’t achieving orgasm.
As great as a hard penis can be, there is a down side. Sometimes a hard penis without any sexual release can result in blue balls. Blueballs are a slang term referring to an aching pain that follows sexual arousal of a male without the result of orgasm. Blue balls most often occur when blood is rushed into the hard penis and is not dissipated by orgasm. The feeling that follows is heaviness and aching. It is an unpleasant feeling that adapted its name because of the blue tint that appears due to the massive amounts of blood that is rushed to the testicles.
