The debate whether boxers or briefs are healthier for your health has been around for ages. Boxers were introduced first, back in the 1920s for boxers. With a loose cutting, it gives the boxers the freedom they need to move around. Briefs later came into the scene, offering a more stylish option for underwear. 

Briefs kept the male reproductive organs closer to the body, making it a more suitable type of underwear when wearing tight pants. It provides the support you need when you’re playing sports, keeping it in place as you run or jump about.

So which is healthier for you? 

The male reproductive organs are designed to be outside of the body so that it is kept at 2 degree Celsius lower than our body temperature. Only when they are kept at a cooler temperature, the sperm produced will be of better quality. Other than affecting the quality of sperm, the quantity is affected as well. When the temperature of the male reproductive organ rise above 35 degree Celsius, it is deemed too hot and they won’t be able to produce adequate sperm, leading to low sperm count.

In wearing briefs, the male reproductive organs are kept tight and close to the body. This will cause the temperature to soar, affecting both the quantity and the quality of your sperms. So if you’re trying for a baby, put on boxers instead! However, the production of sperm takes 10 to 11 weeks so remember to make these changes at least 3 months prior! You should also go for a sperm count test at a recommended male fertility clinic in Singapore. Through the test, it can determine if your sperm count is within the healthy range or not. Your doctor can also recommend you on the next step you should take to increase your chances of conception.

To keep your male reproductive organs cool: 

  • Avoid wearing tight pants! If you’re going somewhere sunny or if you know you’re going to sit for a long period of time, choose loose clothing. 
  • Wear boxers whenever you’re not wearing a pair of tight pants. Best of all? Don’t wear at all when you’re at home or when you go to sleep! 
  • You might enjoy your sauna sessions – you don’t usually get to enjoy a sauna session unless you’ve signed up for a gym or club membership, so just make the best use out of your membership, right? But the heat will be too much for your male reproductive organ to bear. This applies to soaking in hot water too! You can still enjoy your sessions, but maybe just cut down on the frequency of it.

To sum it up, boxers are the best for your male reproductive organs as it allows your male reproductive organ to further away from your body. However, it does not provide the support needed for daily wear to work. Wear briefs when it’s needed but at other times, keep to boxers!
