Each testicle is surrounded by a double hindesæk and is hanging in sædstrengen, so testicles and hindesækkens internal walls are moving relative to the outer wall.

Hindesækkens two layers lubricated by a small amount of liquid in order to facilitate sliding against each other. Hindelang sac ends usually close around the testes and should not be confused with the purse, which is a major hudsæk in which the testicles hang.

Testes sit together with membranous bag firmly in sædstrengen. For some men may have poke skin lax and too big, so testicles are considerably more mobile than normal and can wriggle inside the membrane sac.
