“For cramps, I imagine it’s slightly worse than when guys get hit in the balls and the pain creeps up into the abdomen.

For sensation, I once had a condition that required topical application of a steroid foam to my exit ramp. This caused it to always feel damp and uncomfortable when I sat. I was miserable.”

That’s how I imagine it feels, and it lasts days, not hours.”

2) The bleeding part… Not sure? Maybe it would feel like thick mucus dripping out of my dick? I dunno honestly. Can’t relate to that part since I have never experienced something like that.”

Probably instead of shitting water every 10 minutes I’d just be bleeding out my gentiles. Can’t even imagine what that’s like, constantly wet from blood. Like I’m sure you’d feel it constant. I couldn’t do it. I’m too much of a little bitch.”
