The panel confirms that yes indeed, this region of the man's body does have taste buds, but it is not known why or for what purpose and note they do not work like the taste receptors on the tongue.
The Doctors remind our viewers that tastebuds in the mouth sense salty, sweet and bitter and they note other areas of the body with tastebuds (which also includes the brain and the digestive system) will not be able to sense taste in the way that your tongue does.
Urologist Dr. Paul Turek further explained the puzzling reason why there are taste receptors on the testicles, telling HuffPost, “There’s a tricky little difference between taste receptors on the tongue and those in the testicle: the tongue responds to tastes and we decide whether food is edible. The testicle responds to ‘tastes’ as ‘chemical’ substances to decide whether to make more or less sperm and testosterone.”
Friend of the show, Urologist Dr. Aaron Spitz noted there's a good reason why these receptors do not work in the same way as the ones in your mouth. “I’ve seen [this area of the body] covered in pretty nasty stuff ― things like fungal infections ― and their owners don’t have a bad taste in their mouth,” he told HuffPost. “Not to mention, all the awake vasectomies I perform without my patients complaining of tasting soap from the surgical scrub ― nor a burnt flavor when I sear their tubes with cautery.”
So, The Doctors urge curious viewers to leave the work of tasting things to your tongue and not the testicles!
