A member asked:

I recently had orchiopexy and scrotal exploration surgery after i ruptured my left testicle about 3 weeks ago and i was wondering when would be a safe time for me to masturbate or engage in any sexual activity?

If the surgical site has healed, you can engage in sex or masturbation from this time forward. The testicle is passive and contributes to sex by hormonal secretion and production of sperm but does not contract or change because of active sex.

If you have healed completely - it is OK
