    Default Re: How to say "Scrotum" in informal expression?

    Both OK and technically more accurate. But as we're talking about informal language, technical accuracy doesn't signify. Come to that, as we're talking about speech, spelling doesn't signify. It's /sæk/, no matter how you choose to represent it orthographically.

    I would say "nut sack". Why do you need to know this?
