Fireworks and Pants

Why is it that when someone mentions a knee to the balls, or circumcision, or other such things guys will typically wince ...

... but will cheerfully help a buddy stick a firework in his fly, and when it burns his dick, all the other guys laugh hysterically?

The masculine part of me experiences these phenomena, yet I am unable to explain the dichotomy.
