Episode 15- The Balls Show!

 It’s the BALLS Show! Katy and Dani are hanging around, talking about the importance of male dangly bits and why whole body movement matters to the overall health of your man jigglies. Whether you’ve got your own pair or you are simply curious about how tighty whities and modern habits affect testicular health, this show is for you! Be fore(skin)warned, however: while this episode is not explicit, it does get a little hairy(!) what with Katy’s robust use of the word “balls” and the occasional penis pun.
