Warning: This story contains content that is NSFW.

I apologize in advance if I botch some of the makeup terminology here, for I am a guy, and I do not know much about makeup.

I do, however, know plenty about balls, and this story does involve a lot of balls. Well, some balls. Two, or one set, to be exact.

Which, like, if you don’t want to see a man use his balls to help his girlfriend apply makeup, turn away now (but, let’s be honest, the headline already made what you were gonna see pretty explicit, so let’s all watch some balls).

But first some backstory, courtesy of BuzzFeed:

Johnna Hines and Damon Richards are two adults, aged 18 and 20, and one day they decided to use his ball sac to help her apply makeup, and they asked Twitter if they should tweet a video of it. 

Twitter said yes.


I guess we didn’t need that much backstory.

Here’s the video, which is not safe for work.

Although we just mentioned above twice that it is not safe for work, here is a whole other disclaimer on a separate line.

This is not safe for work.


Apparently, the tool Richards’ testes are replacing is known as a “beauty blender” (which was once a meme in its own right).

It appears to spread her foundation just fine, although not necessarily better than the prescribed tool.

She shouldn’t be. Balls are just skin, and with a similar pliancy to the sponge-like material of a beauty blender. It would be not tremendously different, minus a little maneuverability due to the balls being attached to a person. The only real issue, as far as I can see, is some hairs getting stuck in the foundation on her forehead.

Which didn’t appear to be an issue here.

The tweet, naturally, because of Twitter’s affinity for the unconventional uses of the D, went viral.

Even popular makeup artists on Twitter were somewhat enthusiastic (?) about the video. Or at the very least, they weren’t outright appalled.

One, in particular, made Hines go crazy.

As for her boyfriend, he was just happy his nuts got some time in the sun.


Hines, for her part, seems to have accepted her virality—and the ensuing hatred that comes with it.

Which is true. Because, like, really, what is there to be upset about?
