Better Bush for Testicular Cancer Awareness Gallery

The aim of the project is to get men thinking about testicular cancer; using pubic hair (or the lack thereof) plus a pun as the the “attention grabber” for the hashtag campaign came about for two reasons: 1.) in a twitter exchange between a minor celebrity and myself regarding the “Sock on a Cock”/”Cock in a Sock” campaign I was told a better bush than my own would be required to sell the message of testicular cancer awareness, and 2.) showing someone’s scrotum in a close-up like that would certainly be NSFW in most places and lacking in taste in a lot of people’s eyes.

      I completely understand your being sceptical; at first glance the project (and its method of operation) does look a bit odd (to some even comical), but judging by how well it’s been working (positive feedback from followers, messages of support, and so on), I think I can safely say it’s doing much more good than harm.

      BTW: After “Testicular Cancer Awareness Month” was over, the name of the project was changed to “#TesticularTuesday” on Twitter and the number of “bushy puns” were reduced as a result.

          No worries. To a certain extent I can understand where you’re coming from: Testicular cancer as a subject in and of itself tends to freak people out; admittedly the way I chose to bring the subject to people’s attention wasn’t everybody’s cup of tea either.

    EXCELLENT ADVICE! If you have a partner, get her in the act also, so she knows what is “normal” for you.
