Skinny jeans causing twisted testicles say doctors
Rocking the skinny look can cause groin discomfort, fungal and bladder infections, twist your testicles and even lower your sperm count.
The popularity of skinny jeans has risen and plateaued for the last few years, bolstered by tight-trousered celebs such as Russell Brand and Kat Moss. But those of you out there who prefer the skinny look - beware - according to doctors they can cause serious nerve damage and other nasty problems.
A study of 2,000 British men, conducted by TENA Men has revealed that 10% of men have experienced an unpleasant side-effect as a result of wearing skinny jeans.
TV doctor Hilary Jones said: 'Men who wear tight or ill-fitting trousers or underwear which is restrictive around the groin area could be damaging their health.'
Favouring the tight look over a prolonged period of time can result in urinary tract infections leading to over-activity of the bladder – a type of bladder weakness, as well as a low sperm count and fungal infections. Not cool.
‘I have seen several cases of men who have twisted their testicles due to wearing jeans that are far too tight.’
So guys, next time you’re out shopping for legwear, remember, don’t get your testicles in a twist...
