The box­ers vs briefs de­bate has fi­nally been set­tled – at least when it comes to fer­til­ity. A study pub­lished in the jour­nal

Hu­man Re­pro­duc­tion fol­lowed 656 men aged 18-56 who were look­ing to be treated for in­fer­til­ity at the Mas­sachusetts Gen­eral Hospi­tal in Bos­ton. The men pro­vided re­searchers with se­men and blood sam­ples, and also an­swered a ques­tion­naire on the type of un­der­wear they usu­ally wore. Those men who wore box­ers (more than 50 per cent of the group) had a 17 per cent higher to­tal sperm count, com­pared to those who said they didn’t usu­ally wear box­ers.
