We spoke to five men - and a woman - about their relationship with their balls...

Jon Fortgang, 30, is a writer.
'My relationship with my testicles is not a hands-on one. They've got a job to do. Usually they do it.'

Sandra Osborne, 40, is a radiologist whose husband had testicular surgery.
'He still looks the same down there. And still functions as a man, you know. With sex it's just the same.'

Ian Winterton, 30, is an editor.
'I was booked into hospital immediately. The specialist had a good feel - which wasn't much fun... '

Hugh Flint, 33, is a chemist.
'I knew my right testicle was swollen, but I kept putting off going to the doctor. What difference would a day or a week make?'

Myles Gascoyne, 29, is a new media salesman.
'I had a prosthesis, yeah, a rubber falsie. It's fine... now the novelty value's worn off.'

Ian Gwyn Hughes is a TV presenter.
'Infertility didn't cross my mind when I was diagnosed with testicular cancer.'
