Ballbusting (1).png

Ball-busting is a classic masculine and manosphere activity in which men take turns insulting one another in a light-hearted manner.


The activity serves both as a bonding exercise and as a mechanism by which men can be hardened against similar, less well-meaning taunts. It can also have a traumatic component that is unhealthy and is often taken way too far. Some compare it to military conditioning, but this is a bit odd.

Ball-busting is not to be confused with actual harassment.

Who employ it[edit]

Men employ ball-busting exclusively amongst themselves. Some men have attempted to engage in ball-busting with women, but it is rare to find a woman who can take the "abuse" without offense. Further, when men engage in ball-busting in the presence of women, the activity becomes more of an exercise in ritual combat for the woman's favor.
