Subject: Fashion for tight jeans is increasing testicular problems among men

Written By: warped on 07/13/12 at 12:53 pm

The number of men suffering from painful testicular problems is on the rise - thanks to the current fashion for tight jeans, experts have claimed. Medical experts, including Dr Hilary Jones, have reported an increase in injuries being caused by the jeans, which are favoured by celebs such as Russell Brand, Jude Law and Joey Essex. The trendy denims are causing twisted testicles, bladder weakness and even urinary tract infections.

Low sperm count and fungal infections are also being put down to the tight-fitting jeans. ''Wearing tight-fitting clothing over a prolonged period of time can lead to urinary tract infections leading to over-activity of the bladder - a type of bladder weakness as well as a low sperm count and fungal infections.

Twisted testicles occur when tight trousers prevent the spermatic cord from moving freely, meaning it twists and leads to testicular torsion which cuts off the blood supply requiring immediate surgery to prevent a gangrenous testicle.  Tight-fitting jeans around the groin area can put additional pressure on the bladder but can also lead to bacteria breeding and re-entering the body causing urinary tract infections.

This increases the need to urinate more frequently and can cause severe pain.

Bon Scott of AC/DC had something to say about that back in 1976:

...and if he were still alive to comment today, it would either be along the lines that either he's so old he has no idea what "current" fashion is, or memories of the 70s so traumatic that he'd suppressed them for 30-40 years.

Seriously, if that picture of Russell Brand qualifies as tight jeans, you '10s folks don't know how bad bad fashion can be.  And you should be grateful.  Bon Scott died for your sins!

Well put.

"Bon Scott died for your sins"  :) 

He died at age 33...like some "other" famous person who died for people's sins  (and nope, it wasn't Eva Braun)

So just wear loose fitting jeans and you won't have to worry about your ding-dong!  ::)

Wonder if Gary Sandy has any medical issues like this stemming from his WKRP days?
