The Best Underwear to Keep Your Testicles Cool
What is the best underwear for your testicles to keep them cool and provide support to fight scrotal sagging? You'd be surprised that the typical cotton underwear doesn't make the cut.
Definitely Not Briefs Or Boxerbriefs
Briefs and boxer-briefs trap lots of heat! They are very bad for your testicles. You do not want both compression and over-heating. Think about it: You prevent your testicles from dropping to cool and then you also overheat them? That's a recipe for disaster.
Conclusion: Avoid supportive underwear that has poor heat ventilation. Unless you want testicular damage.
Avoid Supporters And Jockstraps
Supporters and jockstraps are the worst! Not only do they typically trap a lot of heat, but they also typically over-compress the testicles. You really cannot find a good compression supporter because they all squish the testicles and balls together into a ball! Someone really didn't understand why your testicles are outside of your body when they designed these things.
Conclusion: Avoid both supporters and jockstraps whenever possible, unless you want impaired testerone and fertility.
Likely Not Boxers
Boxers seem like a good option at first, I mean they are better at ventilating heat right? Well, yeah, they don't squish your testicles and balls into one lump, but they also allow scrotal sagging. At the same time, I have yet to find any boxers that are good at ventilating heat, and believe me, I've searched a lot.
Conclusion: Seems like a good idea at first, but isn't. Try to avoid boxers unless you want scrotal sagging (which is unhealthy in the long-run).
Going Commando/Underwearless Is An A Better Option
Going commando is probably the best option here. I mean why are our balls--the one body part that needs to be kept cool wrapped up in multiple layers? It's irrational--an irrational social norm. Even though going underwearless is the best option for keeping your testicles cool, it still doesn't provide scrotal support.
Conclusion: Likely, by far the best option here--much better than briefs, supporters, and boxers. Going commando is a good option.
The Best Underwear for Keeping Your Testicles Supported & Cool Is
The best cooling underwear is one has a specially designed fabric, separates the penis and the balls, all at the same time providing light support for the testicles--improving blood circulation and not over-heating the testicles.
Conclusion: Buy my underwear lol. It really makes a big difference.
Boxers provide no benefit for varicocele because they trap heat, and do not provide no support. This means both scrotal sagging (increased varicocele size) and overheating.
Do not wear briefs if you have a varicocele. The main problem with briefs is that they squish the testicles and penis together into a ball. This traps lots of heat. Compression and with over-heating creates testicular dysfunction (it prevents the testicles from dropping to cool, and over-heats them too.)
Scrotal support underwear has the exact same problem as briefs. They compress the testicles and penis into a lump, over heating them and preventing the testicles from dropping to cool. They cause a lot of damage to the testicles. Many ill-advised doctors recommend scrotal supporters for those suffering from varicocele.
Commando / No Underwear
I advise going commando over wearing boxers, briefs, or supporters. Cooling should take precedence over compression. Without cooling compression is dysfunctional.
The best underwear for varicocele provides maximum cooling, separates the penis and testicles, and provides healthy scrotal support & compression. These combined together are very beneficial for varicocele. They help cure varicocele pain, reduce swelling, and improve both fertility & testosterone.
Why Scrotal Support Underwear Is Bad!
When you combine compression, overheating, and varicocele, you get testicular damage. If you copress the testicles you prevent them from dropping down to cool-down when they're over-heated. From here, we know that varicocele disrupts normal testicular cooling. So, the testicles are almost always wanting to drop down to cool. But if you compress them up, they cannot even do this. Add poor heat ventilation to this, and you not only trap lots of heat, but your testicles have no way of cooling down. This means testicular damage--as in testicular shrinkage, infertility, and impaired testosterone.
Why You Shouldn't Use Testicular Support/Compression Underwear
Think of it this way: When the testicles are too hot, the cremaster muscle loosens and distances the testicles from the body in an attempt to cool the testicles. So, if you take away this ability with compression, and also add heat stress--that's a really bad idea.
Now, here that's actually that most doctors are getting wrong. Doctors are recommending supportive underwear for testicular pain, varicoceles, infertility, etc. They're treating the testicles like a joint "provide compression to improve blood circulation". But, the testicles aren't a joint! While some light compression is likely beneficial, too much compression is not. Moreover, compression with over-heating leads to terrible stress & damage to the testicles.
Proper Testicle Support: Underwear that provides testicular support or compression Must also provide adequate cooling.
Most Underwear Do Not Keep The Testicles Cool
Briefs, Boxer Briefs, & Jockstraps: Squish penis and testicles into a ball and trap lots of heat. Trapped heat damages the testicles, and causes both pain & dysfunction. We're talking about serious decrease in both fertility and testosterone production, and at times testicular shrinkage. So while this might seem like a light topic, it is actually very important.
Boxers, & Trucks: Do a slightly better job at cooling the testicles, but, they still trap a lot of heat and provide no scrotal support. This means both overheating and scrotal sagging. We can do better.
Going Commando: Going commando is a great way of keeping the testicles cool. And... It works! But, unfortunately, it does not provide testicular support, leading to scrotal sagging. So, it is better than boxers and trucks.
The Best Underwear For Cooling The Testicles: This type of underwear maximizes cooling while providing testicular support & penis/testicle separation.
