Hello guys. I have read tons of threads and opinions on this topic, but couldn't find any medical research, statements or facts. So the question is - is ball stretching harmful? Does it really cause infertility? Is just wearing a simple leather stretcher for long periods bad? If so, are there any devices which pull just the skin down without stretching the balls themselves (this would sound relatively safer)?
Thanks!

Not sure about medical research. Secretleather.com may have some, they seem to be the experts on the subject.

Thanks for your answer Tim. Secret Leather pretty much say "It hasn't harmed us, but we don't 100% guarantee for you". I asked the same question today on Drugs.com | Prescription Drug Information, Interactions & Side Effects and some seemingly knowledgable guy gave a very thorough answer. I post it here so that others with the same concern can read it:

[FONT=Helvetica, Arial, Nimbus Sans L, sans-serif]Can leather ball stretcher cause infertility?
Yes, it very well could. Sperm are manufactured by the body in the srotum as they are because they have to be at a certain temperature to be live and motile. If they are too warm or too cool (as a "ball stretcher" would cause them to be) they will die or not function properly. Most of the body works the way it does for a purpose and altering that can lead to the body not functioning properly. "Stretching" can also damage the vas deferens which are the ducts that transport sperm in anticipation of ejaculation. Testicular torsion is the most serious potential consequence of scrotal stretching. If the spermatic cord and blood vessels are sufficiently compressed, circulation to one or both testicles may be compromised. This will cause swelling, bleeding and pain and is considered a surgical emergency. A surgeon may need to fix the attachment of the affected testicle as well as check for effects to the other testicle. If medical treatment is not sought immediately, the testicle may become gangrenous and require removal. f rings or weights are left in place for a significant period of time, as they must be in order to achieve desired results, one unpleasant consequence may be inflammation secondary to a skin infection owing to poor hygiene, with the scrotal skin going unwashed or not being "aired out" for considerable periods. Anaerobic bacteria may thrive in the absence of oxygen, leading to the formation of abscesses, foul-smelling pus, and even tissue destruction, especially if cuts are present. As all males know, bruising and swelling of the testicles is very common, and scrotal stretching carries risks of these effects because of the placement of devices against sensitive tissues. If, for example, a strap is accidentally pulled against rather than above one or both testicles, swelling may occur; damaged veins over time could cause a varicocele, while fluid buildup in the aggravated scrotum can cause a hydrocele, both of which are painful. Most testicular bruising and swelling resolves within a few days. If stretching devices remain in place, however, pain and swelling may persist for longer.
