When you think of a jockstrap, you probably think of sweaty men getting muddy on a rugby field or fat ugly men walking round the shower block with their bums hanging out! There is a stereotype to jockstraps that is never going to go away, but now jockstraps are becoming much more en vogue as its benefits in improving male fertility has been discovered.
The main causes of male infertility are due to the social environment we now live in. Stress and chemical absorption from food, our environment and even at our workplace (especially lead) and reducing the male body’s ability to produce and sustain sperm. And another contributor to the decline in male sperm is heat.
Due to the synthetic nature of our clothes and our increasing sedentary life, the temperature in the male groin area is now higher for consistently longer periods than ever before.
he reason that the male genitals are found outside the body is because sperm is more effectively produced and sustained at a slightly lower temperature than the average human body. By keeping this away from the core part of the male body, the temperature inside the scrotum is maintained at a lower level enabling the sperm to survive more successfully than if they were inside the body.
However, now that we wear more synthetic and tighter clothes, the temperature within this area is nearing the same as that of the human body and, in some cases such as when you wear nylon for a long time, can actually be higher than that of the core body, making it impossible for sperm to survive.
The temperature issue is also exacerbated by the increasingly sedentary lifestyle that we now live. As we spend more time sitting at computers and watching television than ever before, so the genitals are tucked into the body, for a greater proportion of the day, which reduced fertility. In fact, studies into men with sedentary jobs such as taxi drivers and long distant lorry drivers has shown that maintaining a seated position for extended periods clinically reduces your fertility levels.
But all is not lost., and something as simple as a jockstrap can really help.
Designed to lift the genitals up and away from the body and made in a breathable material, the jockstrap can reduce the temperature inside the scrotum sacks enough to make the environment in which the sperm survive much more to their liking, meaning that sperm can survive for longer periods and to a greater quality for when they are needed.
In addition, the lifting of the scrotum in a jockstrap also keeps this area in a more convenient position when you are sitting for long periods of time.
