28th SepTight fitting mens underwear myth
Men need to visit doctors more to discover the truth about myths we hear.
It would appear us men are notorious for not opening up about personal things, particularly when it come to issues of a medical nature and this has been confirmed following a survey by the Office for National Statistics.
Figures suggest that women are far more comfortable visiting a doctor then men and even when blokes do, they find it hard to talk about the things that are really bothering them. A Men’s Health Magazine forum backed this up; as they also found the male of the species is becoming increasingly unlikely to make an appointment to see a GP.
Doctors are there to offer an honest and accurate answer to almost any question asked of them, yet men are still reluctant to visit them for advice. Maybe it is just a male pride thing. It is like asking for directions when we are lost; it seems too many men are just unprepared to do it.
Our GP’s are there to break the urban myths that circulate around male conversations or correct facts from tittle-tattle that we have heard down the pub.
One of these legends regards blokes wearing tight men’s underwear and the affect it can have on our reproductive chances. Well, this is a common myth. The truth is that increasing the temperature of the scrotum, ball bag or whatever you wish to call it, will decrease the quality of the semen that is produced and there has been evidence to suggest that tight briefs can drop the quality. However, it has never been proven to affect fertility, so the jury is still out on this one until scientific proof tells us otherwise.
If you prefer the tighter fitting style of mens underwear, go ahead and wear it with the comfort that there is no evidence saying this will stop you having kids one day.
