My tomboy girls sometimes snidely comment "You're dressed up" when they see me wearing a dress.
There's actually a very practical reason when it's hot as Hades out. I get a lot more air circulation than wearing shorts. Material for summer dresses tend to be lighter as well which is a bonus.
So shove it, girls!
Keeping cool is important for guys as well. I actually talked about it last week.
But lo and behold, a study JUST came out to confirm what I was saying.
Published last Wednesday, researchers found that men who wore boxers had a 25% higher concentration of sperm and 17% higher sperm count than those who favored other underwear styles.
646 men were asked to choose from the following options: boxers, jockeys, bikini, briefs, and “other.”
As a chick, I'm wondering...
- Isn't jockey just a brand?
- Do American guys REALLY wear briefs? I think that would scar me to see a beach full of briefs. Thank goodness for board shorts!
As a clinician, I'm putting boxer briefs into the "briefs" category, in case you're wondering.
They should have added "none aka going commando" as another choice cuz theoretically that's the best option, no?
I would have been happy to give my professional input in this study. ;)
If going shopping, organic cotton or silk are best since they're natural fibers that'll keep him cooler than he already is.
