After long periods of sex, my testicles become very sore and tender for a few hours. Why does this happen?

In brief: "Blue balls"

This happens to all guys who stay aroused for a long time without ejaculating or before they ejaculate.
I believe it's caused by the overfull seminal vesicles pushing on the nerve that supplies deep-pressure sensation, but this isn't proved. The solution is ejaculation by any means. You'll learn how to manage this. Best wishes.
