Skinny Jeans cause urine infections and twisted testicles

Joey Essex and Russell Brand look away now – as tight, spray-on jeans might make you look stylish - but they’re getting your testicles in a twist.

A study of 2,000 fashion-conscious men has discovered that male skinny jean wearers are putting their health (and groins) in danger of nasty side-effects - including urine infections and twisted testicles.
The study by TENA Men found that one in 50 men risk their long-term testicle and bladder health by squeezing them into super-slim jeans in the name of fashion.
Tight-fitting jeans around the groin area can put additional pressure on the bladder. They can also lead to urinary tract infections, which increase the need to urinate and cause severe pain, says the study.

However, this doesn’t put style-seekers off wearing them.
The study discovered that despite half of the men admitting to groin discomfort, bladder troubles (25%) and twisted testicle (2%), they carried on wearing the trousers “to show I can still fit into them” and “because they look good”.
“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,” explains Dr Hilary Jones in a statement.
“I have seen several cases of men who have twisted their testicles due to wearing jeans that are far too tight. My advice would be to make sure you leave plenty of room around the groin area and that your pants and trousers feel comfortable so you’re not being restricted in any way.
“Please don’t put style before health.”
