If you were defending yourself and your child from a rapist.....and you managed to grab hold of his testicles, how hard would you squeeze? and what effect do you think this would have on your attacker?

In a self defense class I learned that throats are very vulnerable and don't have the logistical disadvantages that eyes and nuts do. Just grab and squeeze , it's not much harder than collapsing a thick cardboard tube, like gift wrap comes on. Cutting off someones ability to breath works every time. Also I learned to NEVER let anyone take you anywhere, even if they have a gun. Your survival odds decrease so dramatically at that point- you have a better chance of surviving a shooting.
If you ever get a chance to attend Debbie Gardiner's Survival Institute seminar please do.
It's been many years and many seminars ago [ including FBI self defense classes] but she was the absolute best! Minna

If he had advanced to the point, where the testicles were accessible, I agree with grabbing just one. But, I wouldn't want it to get that far. For example, if he's wearing blue jeans I don't think you'd get a good hold until the jeans were off/open. If he was already that physically close to me, I'd go for the eyes-both of them. In close physical combat with a person (who is larger/stronger) whatever target you choose, don't let go. A half hearted squeeze to the privates is going to make him really mad.

I would squeeze as hard and long as required to get him to leave me alone so I could take my child and run. also if you were in a place where people might be able to hear you it's better to shout "fire" than to shout "help" b/c studies have shown passersby will be more likely to help in the case of fire

I have had to use the testicle squeeze in real life, and it works, unless the guy is naked you're not gonna know if you have one or two testicles, but the for sure thing is once you grab his nuts squeeze as hard as you can and pull on them until he drops to the ground crying!!

Wouldnt it be more effective squeezing both testicles? Like if you use both your hands hows best way?

What effect do I think this would have on the attacker? Well, it would be the last thing he thought about before he met his maker.

If I managed to do that especially in defense of my daughter,I'd squeeze until his eyes popped out and he turned blue.I'm sure it would make him think twice before trying it on me again.

You learn something new everyday! ; )

I do hope you asked this out of pure curiousity and are not currently afraid of someone that you think has targeted you!

yep the rule is to only grab one. You have more power that way. Think of it like trying to hold onto a squirmy child do you grab one wrist or two? You only need the one and you're only using up your energy trying to get both, since one is more effective.

good question, how hard should you squeeze before he pass out? I would squeeze one testicle with all my strength... both hand if possible.
here is web info i found on in 2010, Kim , UK::::
My mum, who is a nurse, told me the best way to defend myself against a guy was to grab one of his testicles, squeeze hard, and keep squeezing! Apparently, a guy will pass out after 30 to 50 seconds!
Apparently, the agony from a squeezed testicle causes a guys stomach muscles to violently contract, which is supposed to cause him to double over to protect the sensitive organs from further harm (be prepared for this and dont let go!) The contraction of these muscles also has the effect of paralysing the diaphragm preventing him from drawing breath. All the time you are squeezing, he wont be able to breathe, and it is the subsequent lack of oxygen to the brain that causes him to pass out. Make sure he is unconcious before letting go and making your escape. Dont worry about killing him because, once unconcious, the contraction reflex stops and breathing will resume.
It is more effective to grab just one testicle because a girl's hand can only exert limited pressure, which shared between the two organs would be insufficient to cause the desired amount of pain.
