Leave it to British rugby players to put their balls on display to educate other men about testicular cancer. Testicular cancer is one of the leading cancers among men 14-40.

In this NSFW clip a rugby team disrobes with the help of a health professional to learn how to examine their testicles for lumps that may signal testicular cancer.

The clip is fun, sexy and informative. We need more of this kind of smart and honest stuff to educate men on how to keep themselves healthy.

I wish our country had this kind of fun attitude towards the human body and health.

Plus- I kind of wanted to be the doctor in the video.

Take me out to the ball game,

Take me out to the crowd,

Buy me some Latex and smart ass cracks,

I don't care if I ever come back!

Seriously, a very important video about a real problem for men. If we could develop a similar attitude it would be tremendous.

Next week, group prostate examinations!

Haha. I play rugby here in Chicago. It doesn't take much for rugby players to strip naked...

Matt - is that an offer? *grins*

And Waymon, that's a job I could really wrap my hands around.

Seriously though - I'm glad the one guy is okay. I did the check in the shower one morning (long ago) and my then-boyfriend was like, "What in the hell are you doing?" I told him and he did it. A few years later he reminded me of it (after we'd broken up) when he did a self-check and found something. Since he found it quickly, the docs fixed it right up. No problems.

Yeah, that's going in my favorites....
