Boxers Versus Briefs


To produce the right quality and quantity of sperm, the temperature of a man's testes must be lower than his body temperature - hence they are located outside of his body. Some believe wearing briefs raises their temperature by holding them too close to the body, and therefore plays a role in a man's sperm count. Have your partner ditch his briefs in favor of some looser-fitting boxers, but be aware that it takes 10-11 weeks to produce sperm, so don't expect overnight results.

Just remember, this isn't a sure-fire way to increase sperm count. If you and your partner are having trouble conceiving, getting him tested for low sperm count is something to consider.
