Why men sniff their fingers after scratching their balls

Why men sniff their fingers after scratching their balls
Yep, here's your weird science for the day

Quote:Looking for reassurance, we searched far and wide for more concrete answers. We asked organic chemists. We asked primary care specialists. We even asked evolutionary psychologists. No one wanted to answer our question. Our love of our own ball smell, we feared, would remain a mystery.

But finally! One responded: Biopsychologist Nigel Barber, who specializes in sexual and reproductive behavior using an evolutionary approach. According to Barber, neither hygiene nor curiosity is the reason for this infatuation. Instead, he theorizes that men sniff their ball-sweat-smelling fingers to feel more alive.

In simpler terms, sniffing your ball smell is reassuring, because it solidifies the fact that you’re a unique human being — one who makes a unique smell, albeit probably not one anyone else would appreciate.

Barber adds that our instinctive attraction to our own scent is essentially a form of egoism, a philosophical theory that recognizes the self above all else. Which is fair: There’s truly nothing like a hefty whiff of your own scrotum odor to remind you that you’re living life in your own unique way.

You're welcome. Winking

Now if only there was a study on why they leave the toilet seats up. Wink

Because it has a hinge and adults know what hinges are for. Dodgy

As for the finger thing, somebody needed to publish something or die, I think.

Are you claiming that toilet seats can actually be swung down?! Huh

I'm sure some men do this. I'm  not one of them, though.

People will think this is a common male behavior.  I highly doubt it.    Tongue Wink

I never have, nor have I ever even thought to do this.  
I've also never seen another bloke do this—or even talk
about it at the pub over a beer. I call the story total bullshit.

I don't really have any urgent desire to check the olfactory
condition of my man-sack anyway.  Why the fuck would you?

Because if we left the seat down and got piss on it you'd grumble even more.  Big Grin Tongue

Why is it that women always demand that the seat is down, and have
the self-righteous expectation of it being so?  How is it that men must
obey this rule without any objections?  Would it not be fair for men to
equally claim the opposite in this scenario, that is, the seat is always up?

This is blatant discrimination against men by the feminist lobby, and is
truly outrageous!

So... I say to men;  leave the seat down, and leave your piss all over the
toilet seat.  Great steaming globules of the stuff; stinking rivulets of your
golden nectar.  Maybe even let some splash on the fucking floor tiles.

Then maybe she'll put the seat up... how it was designed to be.     Whistling

I removed the seat once, after the last time I heard complaints about leaving it up.

I don't see what the issue is with the toilet seat.

Some of you ladies may not know this, but men sometimes use the toilet with the seat down too. Never once... never, ever, ever, not even one time... have I seen it as an inconvenience to have to put the toilet seat down before taking a dump. I don't see why it's a problem for anyone.

Truly. I'm not trying to be rude. I'm genuinely puzzled about all the griping from women folk.

"Most convenient" for them, that's the reason. Plus a dash of penis envy if the truth be told.

Try stumbling out of bed in the middle of the night, groping your way to the bathroom and sitting down on the toilet, which has been left open so you miscalculate the distance down as well as are greeted by an ice cold thin rim of ceramic. 

It can turn you into a murderous maniac...it's a rude awakening during a process that would normally never even register.

Men who fail to put the seat down are banned in my house.
