At the beginning of Alphatribe Magazine we set out to bring you every gay fetish we could and through fisting, piss, whipping, leather, rubber and puppies we have done our best. We have also tried to bring lots of the more off-centre fetishes such as Furries, Gunge, Superheroes, CMNM, Masters, Naked Barbers, Castration escorts, Hazing and everything in between. One area we have not yet covered is the horny as hell noble art of Ballbusting so now let’s turn to every guys Crown Jewels in all their glory and also the favourite ‘homoerotic’ game and pursuit by straight and gay guys alike that has knocked The Biscuit Game from its Number One spot in every Fraternity, college, military barracks, locker room and sportsman’s bar the World over….’Nutball’ and its many variations of Ballbusting.

Simply this is the fetish pleasure of hitting or kicking another guy’s ballsack (Or sometimes your own) to cause as much pain as possible. This would have limited appeal if it was not for the fact that so, so many gay and even more straight men just love it. PAUL STAG investigates the eternal ongoing appeal of a quick punch in the testicles in your College Frat House or a crunching fist and twist of your scrotum in a Rugby scrum. This will hurt but to so many it will hurt so good.

The fascination with our bollocks comes from the fact that it is our ultimate symbol of masculinity even more than your cock, muscles, deep voice or chest hair. Your ball sack is where your baby juice comes from to propagate your line and name, women don’t have them and they are tour favourite toys as you jerk them dry several times a day from your 13th birthday until you are 80 plus.  Intrinsically we get to see them as representing our masculinity and are the symbols of manhood, coming of age when they drop and machismo. The bigger they are and more they hang down the more of a fucking bloke you are. For 10,000 years we have played with them from lightly slapping them or squeezing them, through centuries of blackballing and dunking them in pints of beer for others to drink, onto the development of our horniest testicle sex toys such as bollock presses, stretchers, The Humbler, Testicle cuffs, parachutes and weights together with covering them in as much piss, hot wax, spit and clothes pegs as possible before we pump 20,000 volts through them from a handy nearby generator. It possibly all starts in the playground with the well-known punishment of nutting where a couple of bigger lads pick up another guy and with his legs open pull him hard balls first onto a tree or post with one leg either side moving him up and down for added rough agony probably just before taking him to the toilets, holding his head down the pan and pulling the flush. As they are so important to us and symbolic it is no surprise that emasculating another guy by ‘destroying’ his ballsack as it were makes you feel much more of a man like a triumphant boxer or wrestler. A psychologist would probably say something about turning another guy into a ‘ball less woman or Eunuch’ makes us feel more superior but simply as Gay men it just plays right into our domination and subjugation mindset and gets our dicks rock hard and dripping cum like a faulty tap. Interrogators and military operations have long been focused on the balls as it is easy to inflict incredible pain and probably most of the instigators get really off on it and wank like crazy afterwards.

Ball abuse can be traced back to Roman times. Many believe that the word testicle comes from ‘testify’ suggesting that to swear an oath in Roman times you did it on your bollocks by grasping them publicly rather than say a religious book. Basically, they were ball obsessed and training ballsacks to take pain amongst soldiers in the legions were as standard. Class was everything and you could fuck down but not up class without repercussions. Climbing up the social ladder was forbidden. If a common citizen decided to fuck an unwilling soldier, the punishment was public castration. If the soldier willingly allowed the common citizen to fuck his ass, he would be publicly disembowelled…..basically everything started and ended with a Romans plums – the punishment for rape was; you guessed it having your bals crushed permanantly under a very large rock. Throughout history it has gone on as a torture. At the Nuremberg trials, POWs reported that the torture techniques included deprivation of sleep, starvation, systematic beatings, ripping hair from the scalp, menacing with red-hot pokers, electric charges through the ballsack, and, finally, the worst torture of all, the slow and systematic mangling of the spermatic cords of the testicles—a procedure that had their victims thrashing about and screaming like wild animals for hours…..all tortures and interrogations peak with the bollocks it seems. In the Pacific war of WW2 the Japanese were seriously into it and some prisoners that were captured had their testicles and private parts cut off, then placed into their mouths and their mouths sewn up. Then they would send the prisoner back to the Allied Battle lines. The idea was to strike fear into the ordinary advancing soldiers. They are still at it today as pictures across Japan and the internet show of recruits in their Self-Defence Forces (JSDF) being stripped naked and having their genitals tied to tree trunks and bamboo rigs and then beaten……basically they train the men to fight, kill and their bollocks to withstand pain. The Viet Kong during the Vietnam war employed as their top interrogator the infamous ‘Apache’. She was a woman that had been raped by American GI’s at the start of the conflict and then took her revenge by becoming the North Vietnam forces top and most feared torturer. She would abuse and torture US Marines all night letting them know as the ultimate fear that as morning rose she would castrate them slowly with her feared knife which of course played into their fears knowing that 12 hours later their balls would be history, anticipation of what is to come is as much a weapon as real pain. Testicle crushing as punishments were performed as slowly as possible to worsen the intensity of the victim’s agony and lengthen its duration. Standard practice in France from the Middle Ages to the French Revolution was to crush the condemned’s testicles in a vice, which burst them as mush from the scrotum, then crunch the spermatic cords with pliers. The condemned was turned upside down in order to maximize the blood flow to his brain, after which he was unable to pass out or enter a state of shock until, perhaps, the last few seconds of his ordeal which lasted a ball agonising 24 hours. 

Ballbusting is the universally well-known term that covers a huge umbrella of play that makes up 50% of one of our favourite pastimes CBT…Cock & Ball Torture. All of the other extreme sex acts listed above come under this heading but intrinsically it is causing you’re or your partners balls a lot of pain which he will find emasculating which will get your and his dick rock hard and hopefully lead to more extreme BDSM play. An accidental knock or fall on the balls is painful and we have all experienced it in fact it is a sharp, instantaneous pain that will knock you off your feet and may make you nauseas. Most commonly associated on the sports pitch with an accidental knee or foot (which may be deliberate by the opponent) or possibly your foot slipping as you climb a fence or traverse a wall forcing you to land on your spunk bags. Gay men and our straight brothers (after 5 pints) have long learned that this can be turned into horny sex play, or a punishment or of course ethe ultimate forfeit in any game whatsoever. There are many websites but as a start maybe try (With the logo Keep Calm And Kick Balls); and with their great fun ‘B Factor’ contest where you can submit your stories about ballbusting in all it’s horny varieties into a knockout contest. 

Nut CrunchersAll you ever wanted to know about SQUIRRELS! Squirrels are members of the family Sciuridae, a family that includes small or medium-size


It is very simple indeed two guys face each other and take it in turns to kick or punch the opponent between the legs hopefully making full contact with both his low hanging nads causing him to scream in pain, clutch the bruised plums and hopefully fall to the floor. The loser is the one that declares he can no longer go on any more.  The reason it is so popular in jock, sports and military circles is that it is seen as ‘not gay’ more likely a sign of how much of a man you are and even better you need absolutely no equipment whatsoever. Normally played in trousers, shorts or underwear to make the target zone less obvious creating an element of chance it can off course be played nude (Look for it on the mainstage of Darklands in 2021 hopefully). The more common practice now is for both players to be hooded and a third ‘Umpire’ to administer the blows so as the guys have no idea when their spunk sacks are going to receive a blow and a horny bit of punishment. It has now developed as you can see all over YouTube etc to the Two hooded players doing Rock, Paper, Balls (‘Scissors’)..’The nut game’ as it is called with the loser each time not knowing he has lost until the Umpires fist or foot is squashing his balls into meat pate, then on to the next round.


1 Foot and kicking with trainers, all sports shoes, army & work boots as favourites
2 Fist, slap or wrist ball crushing – swift unseen hand in the Nads is always popular
3 Football, Tennis ball or similar thrown hard at a guy’s bollocks
4 The classic Ball Press or ball crushers for BDSM types almost always accompanied by restraints.
5 A Bat – baseball bat the most common, handy as it also fits up an ass nicely too but also cricket bat, tennis racket and Golf Clubs
6 Tree, post or rail – all can be done at speed a tree has added rough friction possibilities with the bark
7 Towel flick – basically locker room and ballbusting have always been inseparable8 See-saw is used in numerous ball crushing videos
9 Trampolines are used to get extra bounce and height from the assailant
10 Bike – Riding your bike into and over a mate’s bollocks takes everyone back to their schooldays
11 Pellet Guns & paintball guns shot at safe distance right into the goolies
12 Whips and Corporal punishment canes etc – for the very experienceed Don’t forget that hot wax, ice cubes, sport bruising heat sprays, toothpaste, shoe polish and hot wax are also standard accessories for ball abuse, bollock play and testicle torture.

1 Why does it hurt so much?
Genitals are densely packed with nerve endings. This small area contains a higher concentration of them than any other part of the body where nerves are more spread out.
This is why any type of touch can result in some major feelings — good or bad — depending on the amount of pressure and your mindset.
Unlike other organs that are protected by muscle and bone, the penis and testes are all out there.
They’re only loosely attached to your body. And your testicles’ only protection is a layer of fibrous tissue called the tunica albuginea. While tough enough to handle some pressure, it can only handle so much.

2 Why do I feel the pain in my stomach?
Feeling pain somewhere other than the actual source is called referred pain. This is what’s at play when you get kicked in the bollocks but feel the pain in your stomach. It happens because of the shared nerves and tissues between your abdomen and scrotum.
Your testicles developed in your abdomen from the same place as your kidneys before descending down in your teenage years to the scrotum and pulling the nerves down with them. So effectively a kick in the bollocks is the same as a kick in the abdomen and kidneys.
Like some other relationships, the one between your belly and your balls can sometimes cause nausea and vomiting when they take a hit.

3 I kind of like it. Is that normal?
Totally normal! Getting your balls busted may not be everyone’s bag, but that doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with it and every fukka does it especially in more masculine environments such as sport and uniformed rolls, prisons, fraternities, etc where the projection of masculinity to other males is all important and basically has centuries of primeval links in men’s brains about their ball sacks and their basic identity and power.
Some people have what’s known as a ball busting fetish. They derive sexual pleasure or arousal from actions like binding, squeezing, slapping, or striking the balls using hands, paddles, whips — you get the idea.

4 If you want to partake in this and have fun, here’s how to go about it safely (Although the male locker room mentality has bypassed most of this from Roman times until today):
Always give and get consent before engaging in any type of BDSM type sexual contact.Communicate and set clear boundaries about what you want.Agree on a safe word to be used when you want to stop.Start slowly with light slapping or gentle squeezing before working your way up to more force.Know that swelling is possible, even with light touch.Stop if the pain gets to be too much or your balls turn deep red or purple.If you want to cheat & prepare your balls for a contest or game then dip them in vinegar and very simply like most things practice, practice, practise which will switch your mind to deal with the pain much more readily and your body will be trained to expect it.

5 How can I get over the pain?
If you get kicked in the balls and aren’t too keen on the feeling, the following may offer relief:
Lay down for a bit.Take an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen.Apply a cold rag or some ice to the area.Wear supportive underwear, or even just tight briefs, to limit movement.BE AWARE Ballbusting can eventually lead to infertility but this is pretty rare.
