Does the word "eggs" ever mean "testicles" in English?

    No.  It's funny, because "eggs" in English refer to women's reproductive ovaries.  But the word "eggs" in Spanish (huevos) or in Portuguese (ovos), it refers to a man's testicles.

    No, not really. In Mexican Spanish, just about every word has a sexual meaning. English isn't like that.

    No.

    "Eggs" is used to refer to what women produce from their ovaries, never to testicles, not least because testicles have no egg-like function.

    No, in English the word "eggs" never applied to "testicles" in English, at least in England. But the even more inappropriate term of "balls" is very commons.. Let's call it 'metaphoric' language of a kind!

    No. 

    Slang terms for testicles in English include: chicken tenders, beanbag, stones, nuts, meat clackers, Tom and Harry [as being in the middle of T D and H], the boys, family jewels, snow globes, snapper slappers, wrinklepurse, bojangles, plums, and marbles, among many other creative ones. 

    Most English speakers in the US are familiar with the Spanish terms huevos and cojones.

    It's not standard in English; no.

    But I know it's used in Russian, and other answers have already shown it's used in German and Spanish.

    No, it doesn't. However, there is a slang or colloquial expression in German that uses the word 'eggs' to indicate 'testicles'. This is the German expression:

    Ich polierte seine Eier. Its literal meaning is this: I polished his eggs. Its colloquial meaning is this: I kicked him in the testicles.

    Not really - that would suggest ovaries rather than testes. Nuts, balls or bollocks.

    No, that's just in Spanish. English uses balls, nuts, etc. sometimes, people use the Spanish word "cojones", many mispronouncing it "cajones" lol.
