The Makers of the Nose Frida Are Turning Their Attention to Protecting Dad Balls
Listen, there are few things I enjoy more than completely fucking insane products. You know the ones I’m talking about, right? Products that serve a very narrow function and you would never in a million years think you’d need, but will buy anyway because how could you not?! My new favorite item in this category is one for the menfolk. We don’t talk about them much here (it’s not called Daddyish), but we love them sometimes! And we want to make sure they’re comfortable and protected when fulfilling their fatherly duties. So obviously, the dad in your life needs a pair of underwear to protect his balls from wayward baby feet. Guys, the dad in your life needs FridaBalls.
From the geniuses at FridaBaby, FridaBalls are underwear that offer a layer of testicular protection for baby-wearing papas.
I fucking love FridaBaby and everything they have to offer. I still use my NoseFrida on my 8- and 4-year-olds. And I am woman enough to admit that I once tried to NoseFrida myself after a couple of drinks. It didn’t work, FYI, and I was heartbroken. They have so many great products for babies and moms! The Windi for toots, the Momwasher for postpartum recovery, even a pacifier/syringe thing for medicine delivery. Everything they have is easy-to-use, durable, and most importantly, affordable.
So imagine my glee when I stumbled upon the FridaBalls. I couldn’t possible describe them any better than FridaBaby does, so here it is, direct from the website. “The hits keep coming when youâ€™re a Dad. Head butts, the baby carrier swinging heel + the good ole Sunday morning bed jump.Â FridaBalls is the boxer brief designed to add branches to your family tree. Each pair of FridaBalls is equipped with a reinforced protective pouch to soften the blow and keep dadâ€™s buddies safe, breathable wicking fabric to keep things fresh, a never slip secure waistband (because crack is always wack) and our patent pending Heirloom Conservation Technology (HCT)”.
Perhaps the most enjoyable part of this entire thing is their tagline: “Protect Your Legacy”.
I don’t have balls (in the physical sense, anyway), so I am thankfully unfamiliar with the pain of being kicked in them. I’ve heard it’s unpleasant! And yes, baby-wearing can lead to some heel-to-nutsack contact. I’ve seen it happen, and tried really hard not to laugh when the dad doubled over in pain while trying to hold onto their baby. I mean, it’s no 3rd degree tear to your asshole or nipple hanging on by a thread pain. But anyone who’s nursed their partner through the dreaded mancold knows: they’re delicate little flowers who need protecting. Especially when it comes to their crown jewels, so to speak.
Perhaps the most amazing thing about FridaBalls is that they are currently SOLD OUT. So many men need protecting! If you want to help your man gird his balls, you can get on the wait list for the next product drop. And please, PLEASE, if you love me: send me a picture of them when they arrive.
