    There's Now Underwear That Saves Dads From Getting Hit In The Junk By Their Kids

    The underwear is actually called "Fridaballs."

    As dads throughout the ages have long known, one thing is not safe when you have kids: your balls.

    Little kids have an uncanny ability to kick, punch, elbow, and headbutt the, uh, region on a near daily basis.

    In fact, considering the volume of these attacks it's amazing any dad ever manages to have a second kid.

    So, in order to combat this problem, Fridababy — the company behind NoseFrida the Snotsucker — has made the world's first kid-free underwear, called FridaBalls.

    And, yes, this is an actual, real product.

    Chelsea Hirschhorn, co-founder and CEO of Fridababy, told BuzzFeed the idea was sparked by the punishment her husband received at the hands (and feet) of their sons.

    "I didn’t take his complaints too seriously at first (I mean, I birthed these kids from my own body, so it’s tough to compete with that frame of reference), but after witnessing one particularly rough incident, I decided to investigate and found 3 million videos on YouTube of dads 'taking one for the team.' I was convinced – this is a real problem that needed a solution."

    According to Hirschhorn, the underwear is comfortable. "We took inspiration from sports padding and then modified the structure to increase style and comfort."

    You can order a pair of Fridaballs for $27.99 at Fridababy.
