Are You Healthy Down There?

When the extremity located below your equator works without the use of pills or “fluffers” it’s always a joyous occasion. Thing is, sending your little soldier into battle too often without the proper armor can put him into harm’s way. And so can ignoring him when he’s on leave.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 26 percent of men haven’t seen a doctor to check their junk within the last 12 months. For people who dislike pesky things like testicular cancer, erectile dysfunction and STDs, this is a terrible practice to adopt. In fact, CDC research also points out that women are 33 percent more likely to visit a physician than guys.
To help highlight why you should get your junk checked regularly, the fine folks over at the Cleveland Clinic have provided this helpful infographic to remind you that allowing a doctor to fondle your package every so often isn’t the worst thing in the world.
