one's wife

The origin is from ancient prisoner restraint methods -- approximately around the late middle ages, prisoners wore a heavy metal ball attached by a chain on their legs, to prevent them from making a run for their freedom (or at least, that is the way medieval prisoners are often depicted in modern popular culture).

The allusion is that one's wife will not let one go anywhere (mostly meant as "go out", rather than "run away from her"), much like the ball and chain.
--Ho, Bob, ya havin' 'nother?
--Nah, gotta head home pal, 'cause otherwise the old ball and chain will come in here an' drag me there.

All Balls No Chain, or abnc, is a very difficult sexual manuever that requires focus, a high threshold for nut pain, nutsack-eye coordination, and most importantly - extremely saggy nuts. While engaged in doggy position, the female may experience more pleasure from the male's droopy ball sack swinging forward, slapping and stimulating her clitoris - even more pleasurable than the actual penetration itself. At this point she will beg him to abnc her, swatting away that pesky dick and demand that he only use his grandfather clock nuts, rendering his limp pencil dick useless. The male may experience pain to his balls due to the constant vag slappings.
