Testicular cancer is one of the most common cancers to occur in men between the ages of 15-39. But awareness of the disease is shockingly low, mostly because it deals with balls, and many men have a hard time discussing them or, honestly, remembering to inspect them. This is a big problem because testicular cancer is very treatable if discovered in its early stages. So, in honor of April being”Testicular Cancer Awareness Month,” the men of New Zealand have figured out a creative way to get neglected nuts the attention they deserve: Drawing dicks and balls.
Go Balls Out is a campaign started by Testicular Cancer NZ that’s asking men to spread awareness by drawing their “cock n balls masterpiece” on Google Maps with the hashtag #goballsout. Kiwi men can just go on a run with a route that resembles their junk, and then trace the path using RunTracker or another such app. New Zealand men are already hopping on board, and many are tagging their friends in the post, encouraging their buddies to join in on the challenge.
“We want young men to ‘Go Balls Out’ to show the world they’ve got the message, and are willing to start the conversation,” Graeme Woodside, CEO of Testicular Cancer New Zealand, said in a statement. “Guys love some competition, and when it comes to cock and balls, they can get very competitive!”
Drawing dicks is a time-honored tradition for dudes all around the world, and it’s about damn time penis art is being used for a good cause. If you feel so inclined on your next run, join our Kiwi brothers, draw a phallic path, and upload the fun.
