Olufunmilayo of YourFavOnlineDoctor is one medical practitioner that is trending on Twitter as an online doctor that can be asked pertinent questions on health. Now, he has gone on to start a discussion about the pain men claim to have when they don’t have sex.
Earlier, NAIJ.com published an account of a woman whose husband removed her womb without her consent. You will recall that the matter was brought before YourFavOnlineDoctor at the time. Now, Olufunmilayo, the doctor who had addressed this issue has brought another matter to the fore.
The issue is about the sexual pain most men claim to have after a long period of not having sex. The doctor enlightened many by saying the pain was imaginary and going with lovemaking for a long time did not necessarily warrant any such discomfort.
He took to Twitter to make his assertion and call the attention of both men and women to his medical claim.
According to Olufunmilayo, it is an absolute lie when men say that lack of sex lead to severe stomach pains or what is called blue balls. The doctor admitted that blue balls is a true medical condition that arises from being sexually aroused, but he also attested to the fact that it is not life-threatening. He gave his reasons for the claim in a long post:
"To boys who tell ladies they are having very severe stomach pains from not having sex: Your day of reckoning has come.
That line is an ABSOLUTE lie.
No man ever gets severe acute stomach ache from not having sex. And NO, not having sex has NO LONG TERM DAMAGES to a man. I understand as a part of some imaginary bro code, I shouldn’t put this information out there.
But I’m sorry, I’m just a messenger doing the work of the Lord . The story that a man will be having very severe stomach ache that can only be relieved by sex is a total lie ��
What some men term as “blue balls” is actually a feeling of sexual frustration and dull discomfort due to fluid congestion when a man gets really aroused sexually.
It’s a normal restlessness and discomfort that goes with sexual release- it’s NOT a life threatening situation. And you know what?
It’s quite very temporary and if a man has sex or simply takes his mind off sexual thoughts, that feeling goes. It’s merely sexual frustration and nothing more than that.
It’s NOT a life threatening problem and NO woman should be made to see it that way.As a matter of fact, even women can have the discomfort from getting very horny and sexually aroused but having no avenue for a sexual release. Only that women don’t tag it a name or lie that it’s giving them very severe pains.

No man will die from not having sex, please Basically what happens is just the physiology of normal sexual arousal. When a man gets aroused, blood flows to the genital area, IF he doesn’t have sex and the arousal is sustained, he feels discomfort-
So what’s the solution? Simple. Have sex. Or avoid sexual arousal thoughts. So is “blue balls” real? Yes, it is. In some men. Is it a life threatening problem for a man?
NO. Will a man die from not having sex? NO. Does a man have to have sex because of that?
NO. Sex is an option, not a mandatory necessity. Taking his mind off the sex will work as well.I know a lot of men are in severe pains ( or sifia pains as that famous Governor called it), but I apologise, I just feel we should set the records straight for posterity sake.

If you want sex from a woman, let it be on the grounds of honestly gotten consent. Not deceit or lies. I hope this table is still intact, it was never my plans or intentions to shatter anyone’s sand castle of myths. Men actually don’t die from not having sex. And no woman is saving the life of any man by giving him sex."
The Nigerian doctor told men that he could relate to the occasional sexual frustration that came with having a libido. But he did not think that they should resort to such a lie about stomach ache or rape any girl because of their urge:
"See guys, we are on the same team. I’m on your side. For real. All I’m saying is that sexual frustration a man feels from not having sex a long time or from being aroused and no hopes of sex in sight is a normal thing.

No need to exaggerate it or lie just to get sexImagine knowing that what you are going through or what u go through once in a while with sexual arousal is NOT life threatening, will NOT kil you, can NOT cause you any problems on the long term and does NOT compulsorily require sex.
Brothers, this is a message of good tidings.And a quick note tho: Going through the comments, some men actually believe this myth is real and not a joke.
Please for your own good, don’t be daft. The risk with believing such crap is forcibly getting sex at all cost. Pls, NO court will justify rape because of “blue balls”.The essence of sex education/awareness is not only to encourage safer sex practice and better attitude to handling sexual frustration, it can literally save u as a man from jail and/or from rape accusation.
Pls be smart, bro. Don’t let a silly “blue balls” myth send you to jail."
Many ladies seemed to be grateful to the doctor for debunking this ancient myth:
