You masturbate standing up?

Next to the bed no less.

OP, is this a new pilates inspired technique?

So much for the theories that edmorel has been laying low so as not to taint his new professional image.

Epididymitis can be caused by many things. You may still have it due to another cause, and you just don't feel the pain until you are in the exact position you are when you happen to be using your laptop on the bed. The cause could be something else, not the laptop.

If you are lying on your side, for example, with your legs together, then your testicles are a bit more scrunched together than when you are standing (for example). This can pull.. and cause the pain you are feeling. You don't notice this scrunching together if you don't have epididymitis, but you will if you do.

It can be caused by an std, but unless you have other symptoms this is not the cause. An imbalance of flora... or a yeast infection can cause it. If you suspect that, go without any sugar for two weeks, then use your laptop. If pain is gone, then it ain't your laptop.

My legs are in the same positions in bed (as when I was using the laptop) by doing other things (reading, watching TV, etc). The only times I have felt this sensation is when I used the laptop in bed. It's not just a pain. It's an aching/tingly sensation that I haven't come close to feeling sans laptop.

I am 100% convinced the laptop causes this pain someway, somehow.

You mean a psychosomatic illness due to stress? OP, get less stress.

I have little stress in my life (thankfully).

It's not psychosomatic.

After dozens of searches on this topic over several years, I've come to the conclusion that the vast majority of responses are not addressing or validating what the original poster is trying to convey. I'm aware of research which indicates that a slight change in temperature can have negative effects which sound similar to what the OP is describing, however, the laptop is, as he states, not resting on the lap and is therefore not in any proximity close enough to transfer heat. The laptop could be 12 inches (more than 25cm) away, and the symptoms are still present. In short, heat is not the cause. 

 

Also, in this case, sitting position is not the culprit. Regardless how I sit or stand, the symptoms appear.

 

I've experimented with battery-removal, testing if the sensation still is there. No effect.

 

I must ask the original poster, are you taking any medications at all? Finesteride (Proscar, Propecia) will cause a similar type of aching, which always resolves after a period of weeks. However, it is a question whether the laptop in conjunction with the medication could continue to produce this effect.

 

A protective lead cover such as would be used in dentist offices should be experimented with. I have not done so yet.

I have the exact same sensations you described and for me it was obvious that the 'tingling' and slight pain, almost like a mild electric shock to my nads or internal pressure of some sort was occurring whenever I placed my laptap too close to my lap.  I also share your experience of feeling these sensations on my upper inner thigh as well, (groin area). 

 

While I do not use the laptop in bed, currently when I do study at home or go online, I have been using a table that does not allow for legroom underneath, so I've been sitting back in my chair with my feet on the table and my laptop either on my lap or balanced on one of my legs and the edge of the table.  It is at these times that I have noticed that after about 2 or 3 minutes in that position, my boys begin to ache, and then a small spot on the leg closest to the laptop.  Its obvious to me that this is the cause because when I move the laptop away from me, or get up and walk away, the pain stops. 

 

My sister suggested to me that I've been reading too much about conspiracy theories and that I'm getting myself all worked up. hahaha.  I highly doubt it.  Like you, I have noticed that when I take my laptop to school and use a regular table where my legs are underneath and I am sitting up straight, I experience no discomfort in using my laptop.  It seems only when my laptop is really close, say within 6 inches of my lap or leg that I have been having these sensations.  I thought that maybe because one of my fans inside my laptop is not working, that maybe the radiation was all coming out in one area or something, causing my testicle discomfort, but now that I see your story I see that it is probably just the fact that my laptop should not be placed that close to my body.  Thanks for posting this.

I too experience this problem.

Often in the evening I am sitting in the living room with the family.  Many times they are watching something I am not really interested in so I will grab a laptop and spend time on line at the various web sites where I participate in the forums, mostly car repair sites.

 

When I use my daughter's ASUS I can stay online all night but when I am using this computer that I am on now, a Compaq Armada M700 just a few minutes after starting it up I have this pain with a second area that feels itchy about 8 inches down my left leg roughly corresponding to the composite video out port.

 

I likewise do not experience this with the Toshiba or the chromebook.  I thought I was crazy and have not told anyone about it. Now you have me wondering about this to the point that I may do some experimentation.  For the past hour actually I have tried using an inch thick book the same size as the compaq but it had no effect. Tomorrow I will put a sheet of aluminum foil in the middle of the book and see if it makes a difference.

 

By the way it is the left testicle that aches.  I flipped the laptop around and sat for a few nminutes to see if it changed sides and it did.  In my book that is fairly strong evidence especially since I WANTED it to not change to prove to myself it wasn't the laptop.

When I put my laptop directly on my lap my testicles feel sensitive as well.. It could just be from the heat, but I have considered the possibility of electromagnetic sensitivity..

post #29 of 32

Exact same thing happens to me. good to hear it's not cancer. And it's only on one side.. ever.. which is weird. please post if you find anything more about it in the future.

I actually found that when I put my cat on my lap I get the same sensation.. It must be the heat.
