LADs Are Exercising In The Shape Of A Cock And Balls For A Great Reason

This week's LAD of the Week is slightly different. It's not actually an individual who's done anything... it's all the LADs who are about to.

You may not know this, but April is World Testicular Cancer Awareness Month. Testicular cancer is the most common cancer affecting men between the ages of 15-39 but many of us are guilty of putting off the doctor. So to try and grab people's attention, Testicular Cancer New Zealand decided to go all in and get LADs to draw absolutely massive cocks and balls. Not literally though, simply by using their own exercise tracking app.

They're encouraged LADs to download a fitness App such as Strava, MapMyWalk, Runtastic etc and share their their 'Cock & Balls' screen grab from these Apps to social media using the hashtag #GoBallsOut.

Obviously, there's a serious side to this. They want you to check your balls and go to the doctor if you feel any unusual lumps.

They believe that there is a lack of general awareness and discussion around the disease among younger men and their peers due to a shyness to talk about their dick and balls. Let's change this.

The cancer is largely a disease of young men, but about 7% of cases occur in children and teens. The good news? It's one of the most treatable cancers if detected early, with a survival rate of 95%.

Graeme Woodside, CEO of Testicular Cancer New Zealand, said: "Early detection is critical for Testicular Cancer treatment, as it leads to better outcomes for patients.

"We want young men to understand that exercise may reduce the risk of Testicular Cancer and learn how to confidently check themselves and know what to watch out for. Asking people to #GoBallsOut raises awareness of Testicular Cancer in a provocative and visual way."

He continued: "Ultimately however, we want people to check their balls and keep themselves safe.We hope this campaign will get people talking and walking, as awareness and exercise are both key says Woodside. We want young men to Go Balls Out to show the world they've got the message, and are willing to start the conversation. Guys love some competition, and when it comes to Cock & Balls, they can get very competitive!"

You don't have to just run though, others are cycling, skipping and even kayaking.

So there you have it, get your balls checked and go run, swim, cycle etc in the shape of a big ol' cock and balls. It could save someone's life.
