While the 'kick in the balls' is often used for humorous effect, it should be understood that a swift kick in the family jewels can result in death from shock. Physical damage is also not to be taken lightly, a mate from the football team didn't wear his cup and got stepped on. We didn't see him for a good while, but the coach said something about "...the size of grapes."

So next time you feel the urge to kick someone in the balls, consider the possible implications.
