Huge Testicles: Why Bother and What to Do

If you’re on a path of self-improvement like many other men, you shouldn’t just focus on the size of your penis – the size of your balls (and, by extension, that of your scrotum) matters as well. While the concept may seem weird, there are good reasons why having huge testicles is a must.

For one, having a huge ball (which females dig) is proof that you’re loaded with testosterone, meaning your sex drive and sperm count will always be at an optimal level. 

Of course, as you probably know, testosterone has a direct impact on your muscle mass. If you don’t have sufficient amounts of the naturally occurring steroid hormone in your body, protein synthesis will occur at a much slower rate – eventually you’ll look less lean, and all your effort will be wasted.



With enough male hormone, you’ll also feel a lot more energetic – and you’ll be less prone to both depression and anxiety.

Make the Right Eating Choices

Your testicle size depends on how much testosterone you have. That means your goal diet-wise, is to choose food that can boost the male hormone’s availability – and when it comes to your carb source, you’ll have to rely on potatoes and white rice as the cleanest sources, but only if you are not overweight. If you are overweight you should be restricting carbohydrates in general.

Testosterone production depends on the presence of the gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH). Interestingly, GnRH will only be released if the right level of blood glucose has been achieved – and that’s something best done by getting enough complex carbohydrates or protein.

If you’re wondering why you shouldn’t eat grains to increase testicle size, well, they potentially contain gluten. Gluten is known to raise the amount of prolactin (a female hormone), and having lots of it will negatively impact your testosterone level.

Aside from having enough potatoes and white rice, you’ll also need to switch to extra virgin olive oil (EVOO). The fatty acids it contains are necessary for proper hormone production. It’s also loaded with oleuropein, which has been found to improve testicular testosterone levels.

It’s important to remind you, however, that not all bottles of EVOO are the same. You need to check whether the one you’re planning to buy is the real thing – low-priced EVOOs are most likely processed and often contain cheaper oils.

White button mushroom should be on your grocery list as well. Even though it won’t provide you with much calories, it does have phytochemicals that can inhibit aromatase activity – and yes, aromatase is the enzyme that transforms the male hormone into its female counterpart.

If you don’t like eating white button mushroom, you could go for other mushroom varieties like shiitake and Portobello. They contain roughly the same amount of phytochemicals, but the white button mushroom is most commonly recommended due to how cheap and common it is in most places.

Last but not least, oysters are crucial in any testosterone-boosting diet. It’s not just because of the supposed libido-enhancing effects though, since this seafood has all the micronutrients (selenium, copper, vitamin D, and most importantly, zinc) needed for optimal male hormone production.

Well, truth be told, making it a point to eat what we’ve listed isn’t enough. You’ll also have to stay away from alcohol and processed, sugary food– these are known to increase belly fat as well as raise your chances of suffering from hormonal imbalance.

Whenever you have REM sleep, you testosterone levels will rise, and your hormonal balance will benefit from it. Good sleep means increased testicle size.

Getting Enough Quality Sleep

If you really want to have a large testicle, you should aim to have good quality sleep – it’s the kind of sleep in which you dream vividly and your eyes exhibit rapid random movement. Yes, we’re talking about what experts call rapid eye movement (REM) sleep.

It’s during REM sleep that your testicles undergo a recovery or healing process, and we’re not just talking about injury here – damage from activities like drinking liquor or getting exposed to harmful chemicals can be healed if you reach the right phase of sleep.

Whenever you have REM sleep, your testosterone levels rise – and that also means, that if you fail to achieve REM, your hormonal balance will suffer (you even become more prone to heart disease). Those who have had quality sleep immediately notice an improvement in male testicle size.

Unfortunately, counting sheep isn’t enough if you’re aiming to benefit from REM sleep. You will need to do a few more things, such as avoiding caffeine (unless you’re having breakfast) and staying away from blue wavelength light.

Regarding caffeine, you’ll have to remember that it could stay in your system for up to six hours (though its effects can already be felt in as short as 15 minutes). Also, don’t forget that the stimulant isn’t something you’ll get from coffee alone – tea, cocoa, and yerba mate also contain caffeine.

Exposure to blue light keeps you awake, although in a completely different way. Whenever you’re exposed to blue light (which comes from electronics and energy-efficient lighting), your melatonin secretion drops – and that particular hormone is crucial to managing your sleep and wake cycles.

Therefore, whenever it’s time for you to sleep, you have to ensure that your bedroom’s completely dark. Using your phone or tablet isn’t something you should do either – resist the temptation and you’ll soon notice an improvement in the size of your man package.

Phthalate is a substance that can cause chemical castration. It cuts serum testosterone and increases testicular cancer risk. It's mostly found in plastics.

Dodging a Castration Chemical

To prevent your testes from shrinking (and to protect your gains), you have to stay away from phthalates – a so-called castration chemical that cuts serum testosterone and increases testicular cancer risk. The greater your exposure to this substance, the lower your male hormone levels get.

So, the next time you shop for personal things, you should check labels for the presence of phthalate – shampoos and soaps are the most common cause of exposure to this harmful chemical. You could also be exposed through food (specifically those high in fat) stored in plastic containers.

While vinyl flooring and automotive plastics contain phthalates, you probably won’t have to worry about getting a testicular lump or a testicular disease due to these things. Although it’s possible that these will add to the exposure, the degree or amount should be limited given how they’re used.

Start Growing but Be Careful

It should be clear that you need to work on getting a big ball (a pair actually) as soon as possible. No need to worry though – we’ve given you everything you need to know to get huge balls (yours might even match the mouse lemur’s big testicle) in the fastest, safest way possible.

Just a friendly reminder – an enlarged testicle isn’t always good news. Working towards huge testicles and avoiding testicular atrophy isn’t the same as suddenly not having a small testicle due to the development of lumps, or maybe the presence of varicocele or hydrocele.

If, at any point of your quest for huge testicles, you end up noticing that something’s wrong with your right or left testicle, visit a doctor right away. Any problems that having a smaller testicle might have brought, you can wait – resolving serious medical dilemmas must always come first.

  1. All men have cancer cells in there prostate gland and doctor will tell you that if found that you need to have surgery to remove it. This is the biggest money making scam of all time since by the age of 16 all men have cancer cells in there prostate gland. Then the second biggest luie is they want to take you off any testosterone. This is how doctors make sure you have cancer because since Dr. Higgins in 1940 castrated a dog an stated he could cure prostate cancer by this method. They even gave him a Noble prize for this so called discovery. So now doctors know a man will not let themselves be castrated so instead the testosterone will be lowered and then removal of the prostate gland. This will leave a man useless in bed. then if his PSA test comes back with any higher count than 0.00 the will chemically castrate him. what a scam. All you need is Testosterone at 800 or better and the cancer will NEVER grow. If testosterone was the enemy then why don’t 16 and 17 year old men get prostate cancer? Please read more and save yourself from this medical scam!@ thank you, DMCL

    • Hi Dave, thanks for your comment!

      I agree with everything you said and it’s all true. My grandfather died of prostate cancer so the topic is very important to me and a major contributing factor to why I decided to create this website.

      When I had testosterone problems myself I also had an elevated PSA. I treated it all naturally according to the principles I now teach and it all reversed.

      It is a medical disaster that doctors are removing the prostate glands of men and giving them anti-androgens. I used to believe in doctors but when I actually took years and years to educate myself I realized how much they got it wrong, always do your own research.

      We will have more articles on prostate issues coming up soon!

      Best,

      Alex
