I was reading an article my uncle sent me about a woman who stopped a rapist by squeezing his testicles once he removed his clothing...........which got me thinking... 

If you and/or your child were being attacked by a rapist and you managed to grab a hold of his testicles, how hard would you squeeze? 

and what effect do you think this would have on your attacker if you were to decide on not letting go of them?

You could just bite them off.

No idea why nobody thought of it before. No more rape! "Walla"!

There's a film made in the 70s or 80s called "How to Say NO to a Rapist" that actually advises this because it paralyzes the guy with pain, as you might imagine. The other technique the film advised is even nastier: inserting your thumbs into the inner corners of his eyeball and pressing hard enough to pop them out. Yes, I'm serious.

If I or my kid were being strangled, I supposed I could do it, but I really don't want to find out whether I'm right.
