Croatian Woman Creates Penis Warmers

Croatian Woman Creates Penis Warmers

Ansley Ansley
"Winters in Croatia’s mountains are so severe that frost-bite was a serious problem for men in the past, especially during long horse rides. So to avoid permanent damage to their genitals, the warmers, called “Nakurnjak” came into use." Read the entire article here.


So this is evidently a huge deal in Croatia, and most of the winters in the United States aren't even remotely as bad as it is over there, but I still can't help but ask this question:

Do you totally want one, like I do? Just to say you have one? I think it's a great example of a simple idea that just needed dedication and opportunity behind it to get it off the ground.

Aww...it's like a cute little mitten for a penis! I'd probably get my boyfriend one just for laughs...probably a pink one. <w<

Though I can see this being quite a useful item for those that live in really cold places or those scientists that do research on the polar ice caps.

Oh really?

Etsy gives me a headache so I don't spend any time there. But, I guess it's still cool that it's being made.

Right? But, what about the balls? Don't they need to be toasty and warm, too?

Probably because keeping the testes too warm is bad for them. The reason they are outside the body is to keep them 2 to 3 degrees cooler than body temperature for both healthy sperm and testicular health.

The same idea as to why men shouldn't put a lap top directly ON their laps; balls should be kept cooler than the rest of the body.

Actually if they're too warm it can lower the sperm count (according to MANswers xD ).
But they do need a little coverage too, especially if it's really cold out.

No. It's because their testes tuck themselves way the hell up in the abdomen when it's brutally cold. There's very little risk of overheating in -50 F weather!

(Shush, cold experts. I know there is a risk, but it's not to the balls.)

I've always found knee high socks for a baby work pretty well. Doubles as gift wrapping when you add a ribbon or bow right behind the head to hold it on ;-)

That's seriously bizarre and adorable all at once. Now penises can have ugly holiday sweaters too!
