Bizarre TikTok trend has guys dipping their balls in soy sauce to see if they can ‘taste it.’ This odd trend is based on a misinterpretation of a 2013 study in the scientific journal PNAS. According to the study, testicles have taste receptors. So, when a woman named Regan came across an article about this study, she challenged social media users to test its theory. She said:
“Did ya’ll know that if a dude puts his balls in something he can taste it? He can taste it!” “I wish I was kidding. I wish I was. I’m not. If you have testicles, please dip your balls in something. It’s for science, and I must know.”
