New research found men who wear boxer shorts have higher sperm count

Wearing boxer shorts could help conception

"It might be predicted that men who spend much of their day seated and also wear tight underwear would be most likely to suffer a fall in their sperm production due to scrotal heating", Prof Sharpe said.

In order to improve your sperm production, you can try wearing loser underwear for improving your sperm production.

The men, between the ages of 32 and 39, were surveyed about the style of underwear they had been wearing for the past three months.

In the largest study of its kind to date, the researchers found men attending a fertility clinic with looser-fitting boxer shorts had higher sperm concentration, a 17% higher total sperm count and 33% more swimming sperm than men with tighter-fitting underwear.

According to Chavarro, not all men need to change their underwear overnight but those who are having trouble conceiving should consider boxer shorts over briefs.

That is not the only benefit for people who wear boxers or any loose-fitting underwear, these men also have a higher percentage of what is known as motile sperm.

Kanye West defends his support for Trump: 'Liberals can't bully me'
Rapper Kanye West is known for speaking his mind, but on Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday night, he was at a loss for words. Here are a few interesting takes from the 20-minute-plus " Jimmy Kimmel Live" interview which can be seen on YouTube .

A number of small-scale studies previously have linked tighter underwear to lower sperm counts, Chavarro said.

However, those efforts aren't enough.

Men were asked to recall what underwear they prefer rather than actually being observed, and all of the men were seeking fertility treatment - so the findings might be have been different if other men had been involved in the test.

"It is very important to recognize that the study does not prove a causal relationship between briefs and infertility, but rather an association between briefs and a lower, though still normal, sperm count that may or may not be a cause of infertility", she said.

Guys with tighter-fitting pants also had higher levels of a hormone that encourages sperm production - likely to compensate for all the seed that gets fried in their high-temperature unmentionables, researchers said. Thus, it can be inferred that wearing loser boxers can be helpful in improving sperm count, but the tighter ones will not make you infertile either. Consistent difference was found in the semen samples of these men.

The study was published August 8 in the journal Human Reproduction.
