    Do my balls work? Are my sperm swimming? Could my girlfriend get pregnant? These are all questions I am confident the answer to is no. I have been toasting my nuts with a laptop 14 hours a day for far too long for there to be anything alive down there. My balls are like a ... / Continue →

    This is an older video of a motorcyclist laying his head on the track in a high-speed turn. I would not do that. The only way you're getting me to lay down on a motorcycle is in a bikini for a calendar shoot. Keep going for the video, head on the track happens about 20-secon... / Continue →
