Jackass: Who is ‘Dave England’ and How Did Dave England Lose a Testicle? Let’s find out the truth. – When it comes to the ‘Jackass‘ franchise, there are three simple characteristics that make it both odd and hilarious: outrageous stunts, bodily injury, and nasty dick tricks. You’ll find everything here, from the “plexi penis smush” to “penis fishing” to Chris Pontius’ member being the monster that destroys a city (the beginning of “Jackass Forever“).

What Happened to Dave England’s Testicle?
Dave England may be best known today as one of the most amusing members of the infamous ‘Jackass’ group, but he started out as a professional snowboarder in the 1990s. He used to simply focus on making risky exploits on the slopes or running his snowboarding magazine Skintight, rather than being the first to join whenever faeces was involved.
Before joining the crazy franchise, he worked as an editor for Snowboarder Magazine and Blunt Magazine. We mention all of this since his body was irrevocably affected by his prior obsession.
England was a professional snowboarder in the past, and he appears in several Kingpin Productions snowboarding videos, including “Bulletproof” and “Back in Black.” Skintight Magazine, a snowboarding publication, was founded by him.
He was the editor of Blunt magazine, the sister snowboarding magazine to skateboarding’s Big Brother, and served as a field editor for Snowboarder Magazine. England also stars alongside Tom Green in the 2008 film Shred. The movie was shot at Big White, a ski resort in Canada, and is about a snowboarding school managed by England’s character.
Dave is married to Shawna England, with whom he shares two boys, Van and Clyde. He is also the father of two children from a previous marriage.
Dave declares himself a vegetarian. When Dave consumes too much alcohol, he is known for transforming into ‘Darf,’ his intoxicated and irritable persona. He has been imprisoned in the United States, New Zealand, and Japan for short lengths of time.
Dave revealed that he lost one of his testicles after suffering a double hernia following a snowboard accident in New Zealand on the Bathroom Break Podcast with former Jackass and CKY crew member Chris Raab.
Dave confessed that he lost a testicle after a snowboarding accident in New Zealand in 1997 on the ‘Bathroom Break Podcast,’ hosted by former crew member Chris Raab. “I was definitely a washed-up snowboarder by then.” He frankly revealed, “I lost one of my balls snowboarding; I slid into rocks and fractured my kidney and spleen,” while laughing off the mishaps. That’s when a perplexed Chris forced him to rewind and explain the matter in detail, especially since he has four children.
“It felt like a tragedy at the time; now it’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me,” Dave joked before getting down to business. “Well, you know, I’ll even go back two years,” he explained. “It was 1995, and I was seeing a girl from New Zealand, so we’d go back and forth, snowboarding all the time [because] their seasons were opposite.” So, for years, it was simply winter, winter, winter. In 1997, I landed flat after a jump at a New Zealand snow park, and I knew I had a double hernia because my intestines were bursting out, and I was pushing them in.”
“I thought to myself, ‘I don’t want to get a surgery here, therefore I’m going home,'” Dave continued. I travelled back, and I’d just relocated to Portland and knew no one. I went to the doctor, who said we needed to conduct the surgery immediately now. They did it, and I woke up with a stinging sensation, and they apologise for having to hack me up; take one of your testicles out. ‘What?!’ I exclaimed. ‘What went wrong?‘ They stated it became entangled in the gut and strangulated, and that if I had gotten surgery in New Zealand, it might have been saved.”
Dave intended to retain his amputated testicle in formaldehyde in a jar on his mantle as a reminder that he still had two. The hospital, however, had thrown it away before he could even ask if it was possible because it was considered medical waste. On the ‘Jackass’ sets, a testicle was grotesquely ruptured, and it did involve Dave, though in a totally different position as “Danger” Ehren McGhehey.
In ‘Jackass Forever,‘ a pogo stick is used to jump on the portions of the crew members, and Danger had admittedly begged Dave to do so, resulting in the rupture and his hospitalisation. Fortunately, he and his parts are both fine.
