In this edition of ‘Ask The Sexpert’, we would be answering a question posted by one of our readers.
John* wants to know if prolonged wearing of skinny jeans would have a negative effect on his sperm count.
Here’s an answer from the experts…
“The hard data on skinny jeans is, unfortunately, limited: No solid research has been conducted on a substantial sample of men wearing them. Science has, however, found a possible link between tight underwear and reduced sperm motility.
Apparently, when the temperature of the testes rises a couple of degrees — as could conceivably happen with the prolonged wearing of skinny jeans — sperm quality may diminish. However, the effect is negligible, according to Men’s sexual health specialist Dr. Paul Turek. “It would be an epidemic if it were true,” he says. Or maybe just natural selection in action.
Either way, doctors recommend you not wear anything tight enough to disrupt blood flow to your genitals, no matter how great it feels.”
