A 22-year-old male asked:

Is it normal to press the tubes in testicles and have pain shoot in your lower belly and legs especially after excessive masturbation?

Pain in testicles: Sounds like the epididymis (the "tubes" you refer to) are tender and swollen - possibly with a low grade infection causing your pain. Excessive masturbation may also cause a non infections inflammation. I would refrain from masturbation for several days and if it continues you need to see your family doctor. Good luck
