Men scratch their balls.

Have you ever noticed how some men use their thumbs to just brush against their balls. Do they have to adjust the position of their balls or is it a way of just getting rid of an itch? Some men do it, clearly thinking no one will see it. Others are very much aware that people around them can see it, but seem not to care. Sometimes, when I speak to a man and look him in the eye, I can just feel how he ‘grips and holds’ my eyes with his, preventing me from looking any place else but in his eyes. While holding my gaze like that, his hand will go to his balls and he will scratch. Do those men really think that the woman across from them cannot see it? Have they never heard about peripheral vision? Do the majority of men really think that no one sees it when they are scratching their balls?

Which brings me to the next thing: do women scratch too? You know, down there? Yes, they do! However, they never do it unconsciously and they certainly never do it while in conversation with anyone else. Women tend to do that in private, because, you know, they sometimes itch down there too.

There is one itch though that really is a terrible one to have. That is the itch of a yeast infection, also called candidiasis. Okay men, I think this is where most of you would just stop reading and click onto something else, but show your that you have the guts, that you care and read the rest of this post too.

What is candidiasis?
Candidiasis is an infection caused by a yeast-like fungus called candida (Candida albicans). It can infect the mouth, vagina, skin, stomach, and urinary tract. About 75% of women will get a vaginal yeast infection during their lifetime, and 90% of all people with HIV/AIDS develop candida infections. Oral infections (called oral thrush) are most common in infants, elderly people, and those with a weakened immune system.

What causes candidiasis?
The primary cause of yeast infection in woman is fungus – primarily Candida albicans. Along with some other types of bacteria, Candida albicans are usually present in small amounts in the vaginal area. However, the bacteria becomes a cause for concern when it multiples rapidly, becoming a yeast infection also known by the medical terms of candidiasis or monilia.

Yeast can be found in the vagina, rectum, digestive system and mouth. Excessive amounts of yeast causes itching and a burning sensation. The most common and pesky yeast infection occurs in the vaginal tract. This is called Candidiasis and may be identified by a thick, white discharge. It looks like cottage cheese and smells like bread (which uses yeast to rise).

Factors That Encourage Yeast Infections
Other situations may not be a direct cause but they may increase the likelihood of infection:

  • Hot, humid weather.
  • Tight or poorly ventilated clothing, including damp bathing suits or pantyhose.
  • Significant dietary changes, poor nutrition, and bad eating habits like junk food.
  • Frequent exposure to sperm and semen over a short period of time.
  • Douching washes away both healthy secretions and normal bacteria from the vagina.
  • Improper wiping from rear to front after using the toilet.
  • Sweating, which can also increase your pH level.
  • Menopause.
  • Some prescriptions, including those that contain steroids, such as Prednisone.
  • Poor personal hygiene.
  • Perfumed feminine hygiene sprays.
  • HIV infection.
  • Injuries.
  • Allergic reactions.


What does it feel like?
It itches. Feeling the discharge is icky, but it’s the itch that is absolutely terrible. If you do not treat a yeast infection on time, the itching gets worse, the vagina feels sore and swollen, there is pain and discomfort during intercourse and burning during urination. Some women will have sexy during a yeast infection, but in my experience this causes even more discomfort, itching and burning. So when I have a yeast infection, it’s hands off until I am healed again. Sex is not forbidden when you have a yeast infection, because this is not a sexually transmitted disease, but the man can carry the yeast with him for about three days. This means that if you have sex again after you are healed, he can give it back to you.

How is a yeast infection treated?
There are medical treatments and several home remedies. The medical treatments are anti-fungal creams, anti-fungal suppositories or anti-fungal tablets.
The home remedies can be found on GrannyMed.

It is very annoying to have a yeast infection. A woman gets horny, despite the infection, but most women will not have sex while they have such an infection. With medicine it takes a couple of days to get rid of it. Some women feel dirty when they have s a yeast infection. Please note, when a woman gets such an infection it definitely does not mean that she is unhygienic!

And please also note: never move your finger from her ass to her pussy, because chances are huge that the woman will catch an infection because of this!!!

Then something that might be a nagging question with men who cared enough to read this post: can men get yeast infections too? Oh yes, they can. Before you click here to read more, just one more thing: next time you scratch your balls, take a minute and think of the women who go through their daily lives, maybe itching badly from a yeast infection and they just cannot scratch as freely as you can!

One thought on “Itches

  1. Actually, no, women will not get a yeast infection if men move from anus to pussy; they will get a bacterial infection such as E. coli or klebsiella which is just as nasty. Yeast infections are usually caused by an imbalance in the natural flora, as it often happens when a woman has had a course of antibiotics. It's a good idea to avoid bubblebaths for this reason and instead take a bath with baking soda in the water to forestall yeast infections in those who are prone to them.
