Whoops, we missed Testicular Cancer Awareness Week, it was April 1-7 this year, but why not make every day an excuse to check on your ‘nads? Since 43% of men readjust their junk six or more times a day, there’s no better time than right now to check your balls for lumps!

Some photos from the Grab Your Gonads event near Houston, Texas, which raised money to help a fellow with stage 3 testicular cancer pay for the aggressive treatment not covered by insurance. We helped design custom shirts especially for the event, which raised $6,000 for Matt!
Looks like everyone had a great time, despite the seriousness of the event, and more than a few people donned a testicle pin or two. Thanks to Kandice McBride for the photos and for setting up the fundraiser and thanks to everyone who banded together to help.
We’ve been waiting with bated breath for our plush reproductive glands to arrive, and hooray, hooray, they are finally here and are available for purchase now! The first three folks to order any of the four new glands — testis, ovary, mammary or prostate — will get a free Spill Your Guts journal! So whether you’re celebrating your vasectomy or mourning a recent mammogram, one of these plushes just might need to go home with you.
It must have been a slow news day because somehow I ended up on the local news as the poster girl for — of all things — examining one’s scrotum for testicular cancer. Very weird, I know. It was a fun and surreal experience and I did get to fondle our testicle plush sample live on the air and anchor Mekahlo Medina wore a testicle pin on his lapel in honor of Testicular Cancer Awareness Week! In other testicular news, we just put the Grab Your Gonads artwork up on the site, it’s free to download and print out yourself, and we have a limited number of laminated cards for sale as well!
I’m working on a testicle exam chart to encourage men to grope their balls during Testicular Cancer Awareness Week, coming up in April. Anyway, give us feedback on our chart! We kind of figure most men touch their testicles at least once a day — the need to adjust, don’t ya know — but that may not necessarily mean they are actively looking for telltale lumps. So, we’d like to take a very unscientific survey — men: how often do you touch your balls daily? The results will be included in our final poster and free download as one of a handful of Nutty Nuggets — fun facts about testicles!
