Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, reports a new study that demonstrates that men in kilts may have better sperm quality than men who wear boxers or briefs.
As Bel Marra Health reports in its article, (http://www.belmarrahealth.com/anti-aging/infertility/research-shows-that-men-should-be-the-ones-in-skirts/) kilt wearing men may be more fertile and better able to procreate, according to the Scottish Medical Journal.
Infertility, defined as an inability to conceive a child, is often associated as a female problem; however, infertility actually affects men and women in equal numbers. In fact, approximately 7.5 to 12 percent of adult males are infertile, and infertility rates are on the rise.
Male infertility is caused by a variety of factors, and some of the top causes include problems with semen, sperm with an abnormal shape and/or size, slow sperm mobility and perhaps most commonly, a low overall sperm count. Lifestyle factors such as excessive alcohol intake, obesity, smoking and a poor diet can all reduce sperm health and increase a male?s risk for infertility.
On the other hand, making healthy lifestyle choices can increase fertility, and according to Erwin JO Kompanje, (Senior Researcher at the Intensive Care department of Erasmus MC University Medical Centre, Netherlands), throwing away those jeans for a kilt might enhance sperm health and fertility.
The research analyzed literature pertaining to scrotal temperature, sperm health and fertility. According to Kompanje, wearing a skirt or a kilt without anything underneath it, results in an ideal scrotal environment because it allows the testicles to hang low and ?breathe? and keeps them at a slightly lower temperature than the rest of the body. This is beneficial because temperature plays a direct role in sperm health, and sperm thrive when kept at a temperature that is one or two degrees lower than the rest of the body. Unfortunately, when men wear briefs and pants, it pushes the testicles towards the body and exposes the testicles to higher temperatures?temperatures which may compromise sperm health.
The researcher concluded that ??men who regularly wear a kilt (without underpants) during the years in which they wish to procreate will, as a group, have significantly better rates of sperm quality and higher fertility.? Although this conclusion makes sense, it should be noted that there have been no large-scale scientific studies to directly prove this assumption. However, there has been a study on the effects of wearing tight underpants, and the study confirmed that it does in fact increase the temperature deep inside the scrotum.
According to Kompanje, the benefits of wearing a kilt are not purely due to the decrease in scrotum temperature. "Wearing a kilt has strong psychological bene?ts. A kilt will get you noticed no matter where you are. Research indicates that men wearing a kilt experience a strong sense of freedom and masculinity and that many women are attracted to men in kilts."
He concluded that, "because the kilt is a purely masculine garment, men need not be ashamed of or reticent about the therapeutic wearing of a kilt for a certain period of time to possibly improve sperm quantity and quality."
