Cojones (Spanish pronunciation: koˈxones
) is a vulgar Spanish word for testicles, denoting courage; it corresponds to balls in United States English and bollocks in British English (an uncommon synonym for courage).
In the fourth episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit a sexually-assaulted woman said she grabbed her attacker’s cojones, because he was strangling her. Afterwards, detectives Stabler and Benson re-enact the rape, and Det. Benson says cojones, like the rape victim.
