Blue balls is an actual thing, at least for some guys under some circumstances. (PDF medical paper link.) I don’t think it’s like “I’M DYYYYING” bad but I have heard from a few places that it can be “aw, darn” bad.
Which is not to say it’s a reason you have to fuck guys who complain about it. They can go home and masturbate, or just wait a little while and cool off. Note that in the paper I linked, the patient didn’t have sex, and he felt better in an hour anyway. (It goes on to suggest that lifting a heavy object could also clear the testicular congestion. So maybe the correct answer to “c’mon baby, I’m in pain” is “then move my fridge.”)
Even if a guy is in pain, it’s still not a woman’s obligation to use her body as living Advil.
i feel like this is an important distinction to make: something can be a “real thing” and still not be your responsibility.
