Boarding school & balls

If you're a boy, boarding schools seem to be dangerous places for your testicles. A previous poll shows that 90% of boys that attend such school have witnessed a classmate hit in the balls and two thirds have seen a classmate take a full-force kick between the legs at some point during their stay.. The problem seems to be far worse at Catholic schools.

Please only complete this poll if you are male and attended an all boys boarding school at some point. Thank-you for your participation.
