It's not always played for comedy, but seeing someone get struck in the crotch is [[AmusingInjuries usually just plain funny]]. Whether the object doing the striking is an errant piece of sports equipment or a deliberately placed foot, the end result is going to be a grown man doubled over and trembling with pain. Bonus points if he then hobbles away and [[InstantSoprano says something in a high-pitched voice]]. Not only will everyone find this hilarious, but tape it and play it back for the guy and [[ActuallyPrettyFunny even]] ''[[ActuallyPrettyFunny he]]'' [[ActuallyPrettyFunny will probably laugh]]. At least, once the swelling goes down. Sometimes a cause of AmusingInjuries, especially if the victim is [[AssholeVictim asking for it.]] In shows targeted at children, it's often a DangerousForbiddenTechnique, or at least treated as one in-story (see ''ThreeNinjas'' and ''Film/MightyMorphinPowerRangersTheMovie''). In Japanese media, the blow is often accompanied by the sound of a bell.

Of course, this usually only applies to men, as female characters are rarely subjected to groin attacks of any kind. While female genitals are, if anything, even more vulnerable than their male counterparts, with lots of blood vessels and nerve endings close to the surface, they are also better protected than their male counterparts due to their configuration and orientation. Simply put they're harder to hit and lack the squish factor that comes from swinging in the wind. On the symbolic level a groin attack on a male--especially if it's delivered by a female--represents that male being brought low by the very source of his masculine pride. Since women don't typically evince that sort of pride in their genitals (female pride being associated more with [[BreastAttack breasts]]) a groin attack on a woman just looks like cruelty. It's also an assault on the very source of all life, considered by many far too sacred for this sort of violation, and any sort of visual representation carries UnfortunateImplications related to rape. A groin attack on a man may appear funny; a deliberate groin attack on a woman usually looks like a sex crime.

Effectively, this is a human's version of AttackItsWeakPoint for massive damage.

A subversion of this is BallsOfSteel, where a character -- for whatever reason -- [[NoSell does not take damage]] from a Groin Attack (or at least doesn't take ''extra'' damage).

Of course, this usually only applies to men, as women seem to be immune to the trope. Or that is, at least, how many depictions in popular cultures work out. In reality, females are as vulnerable in their groin as men are. A strike or squeeze to the vulva or clitoris will cause considerable pain and can incapacitate females due to the high amount of nerve endings in these structures. In extreme cases, the female victim may black out. The reason why females sometimes do not seem to suffer as much pain from a groin attack is because the vulva and clitoris, the parts of the female groin which cause pain when struck, are smaller than the target areas of the male groin, and are hence less likely to be hit. Nevertheless, a strike to a female's genitals can be just as damaging and debilitating as a blow to a male. Potential long-term health problems can arise for female victims of groin attacks including nerve damage to the clitoris, fracture of the pubic bone, hematoma, and vulvodynia. In many parts of the world, an attack on the female groin is considered to be sexual assault. EVEN AGAINST A MAN this can be seen as a sexual crime (for obvious reasons).

'''WARNING, Reading these may cause extreme paranoia about injury to the pubic area and [[ShareTheMalePain wincing in sympathy pains]]. Yes, even if you're female. Also, this is ''never'' as funny in RealLife as it is on TV and can actually cause ''very'' nasty injuries, so for obvious reasons, DontTryThisAtHome.'''
