Ever wonder what the effects of not wearing underwear for guys are?
I know that this is a question that many people have. For starters, when you wear tight pants and don’t wear any underwear, your balls will make an impression on the inside of your pants which can lead to “ball-tracks.”
This is because there’s no extra padding in between.
If you’re reading this, chances are you have a box of underwear sitting in your room. You may be wondering if wearing or not wearing it has any effect on your health and well-being.
This article will be discussing the effects of not wearing underwear for guys. I know it sounds gross, but you might want to hear me out before dismissing this issue.

Benefits Of Not Wearing Underwear
I don’t know about you, but it’s been a long time since I’ve worn underwear. In fact, the last time I went commando was back in middle school.
What really convinced me to stop wearing underwear was one of my friends telling me that he didn’t wear them either and how much better he felt without them.
The more I thought about not having something between my legs all day, the more appealing it seemed.
So what did I do? Instead of going out and buying some new underwear, which is expensive anyways, I just stopped wearing any at all!
Many people might think that the whole “no underwear” thing is just a silly trend perpetuated by hipsters and celebrities.
The truth is, wearing underwear all day long creates a moist environment in which bacteria can thrive. This leads to some pretty nasty stuff, like yeast infections and jock itch.
Here are some benefits of going commando:
Prevents Jock Itch And Other Fungal Infections
Jock itch is an embarrassing infection. Keep your genitalia ventilated to prevent jock itch and other fungal infections.
Keep the area cool with airflow by wearing breathable materials and not tight underwear.
After prolonged periods of athletic activity, the genitals become warm and moist, making it perfect for fungi to grow, leading to redness, irritation, and itching.
Keeping your private area ventilated ensures that the area stays cool enough so fungi will not thrive in this environment.
You should wear loose clothing around these sensitive regions or shower as soon as possible following any type of physical exertion because sweat mixed with organic material causes fungus growth.
Can Influence Sperm Count
Do you know your underwear can affect sperm production count?
The Queen of England is not the only one who knows how to have her way with men, as our new study shows that men’s sperm production can be influenced by their choice of underwear.
The study, conducted by the University of Rochester Medical Center in New York and published in the journal Human Reproduction Update, revealed that men who wear briefs were shown to have significantly less sperm than those who wore boxer shorts.
If you’re not like me, you wear underwear every day. But what if I told you that not wearing underwear could actually be beneficial?
I’m sure you’ve heard the rumors that guys who don’t wear underwear have a higher sperm count than those who do.
And it’s true! Not only does going commando give your testicles more room to hang loose and lower your chances of getting something wedged up in there, but it also helps regulate body temperature.
The testicles hang outside the body in a small sack called the scrotum for a reason.
To produce sperm efficiently, they need to stay at about 94°F (34.4°C) so that it stays cooler than average body temperature and does not get too warm from being near your reproductive organs where you are constantly producing heat.
Less Chance Of Irritation & Injury
What do you wear under your pants? If you’re like most men, the answer is probably a pair of tighty-whities.
But if you want to reduce the chances of irritation and injury when playing sports or working out, it might be time to switch to going commando.
It’s common for genitals to chafe when the skin is rubbing against fabric. This can be especially problematic with tight jeans or shorts that don’t allow your genitals any room, which may cause a rash and even cuts on sensitive areas.
Wearing loose, comfortable jeans or shorts without underwear can reduce the pain and discomfort caused by chafing to your genitals.
Precaution Of Not Wearing An Underwear
Every man has a choice. He can wear underwear or not. But, there are some precautions that every guy should know before he decides to take his pants off.
Here’s what can happen when your junk is constantly rubbing against your pants without anything protecting it:
- The friction from the rubbing can cause unpleasant rashes and irritations on your skin.
- Your testicles could become swollen or even develop boils due to prolonged contact with sweat and heat.
- You might have to deal with an embarrassing wet spot developing on the front of your pants.
Don't Wear Tight Clothes:
As men get older (and wiser), they have many more important things to worry about than whether or not their pants are too tight.
But for some reason, there is a trend in the younger generations of wearing skinny jeans and other tight clothing when going commando—which looks ridiculous and uncomfortable.
Tight clothes can still irritate your shaft and balls.
And that’s not even considering how uncomfortable it is for those with a little bit too much junk in their trunk!
Tight pants might make you feel like an extra from City Slickers – rubbing up against trees all day long – but this discomfort doesn’t just affect what goes on down south.
Tight clothing without underwear also puts undue pressure on both male anatomies, resulting in chafing or skin irritation if left untreated.
Not only do these problems pose difficulties when wearing everyday fabrics (polyester blends), but as we know, spandex often has little given, so there are some.
Well, if you don’t wear underwear, your bulge is always on display. Sometimes it might embarrass ya too – especially when the goods are big!
Wash Your Pants Regularly:
Genitals are gross. But they’re also a hotbed for bacteria, so you need to keep them clean, or else it starts getting nasty everywhere.
Make sure that if your genitals come in contact with anything – clothes (pants or trousers) being the most likely culprits – then put on fresh ones after and wash what was touched by said dirty bits of yourself too!
So, when you are not using underwear, you need to wash your clothes more frequently.
Avoid Fitting Room While Going Commando:
People’s genital area is full of bacteria.
Some of those fecal bacteria can transfer onto the fabric, says Sarah Council PhD., a microbiologist at North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences Genomics & Microbiology Research Lab.
Not only can you transfer those bacteria, but additionally expose yourself to other people who shared the same piece of cloth before.
“Not only are they carrying more icky stuff inside their bodies than people who take care when changing underwear,” Dr. Council said, “but there’s also an increased risk that they could then touch other clothing items with potentially harmful microbes after using them without washing hands–or worse yet.
Why You Should Not Go Commando
I will be honest with you. I hate wearing underwear. It’s so uncomfortable, and it always manages to get bunched up in my pants or shorts.
There are a number of reasons why you should not go commando:
Walking can be a pain for people with skin that chafes. The constant rubbing of the rough fabric against your sensitive parts will lead to redness, rashes, and intense discomfort in some cases!
Maintaining a healthy barrier between your skin and clothes like when you rock antibacterial hemp underwear will help protect yourself from these effects.
But I can give good news for ‘go commando’ lovers! Nowadays, many clothing manufacturers produce clothes explicitly designed for those who have sensitivities in the genital area.
Because it is vital to make sure all aspects of life at work or play remain comfortable – not just physical activity but mental well-being too.
Not The Most Hygienic
When men pee, they sometimes leak a little after their urination, and this is something natural.
Men are forgetful creatures when it comes to public restrooms, and they need a little reminder of where the toilet paper is after their urination.
Men’s underwear does a great job soaking extra pee and sweats all around their genitals.
So, your underwear helps keep you dry by soaking up a sweat which means fewer bacteria to worry about when compared with cotton clothes like jeans or khakis because they don’t absorb as much moisture from perspiration.
Embarrassing Stains & Spots
The importance of underwear is understated, as it can keep you from embarrassment.
Without the protection of briefs and no fabric separating your pants to avoid these embarrassing stains and spots that form throughout a day’s wear, things will get uncomfortable quickly!
Without underwear, sweat and urine will soon leak into your clothes.
Without wearing underpants, the waistband of our pants would be drenched in sweat by day’s end because it was absorbing all of the bodily fluids I created throughout the course of 12 hours.
Research shows that jeans can go weeks before needing a wash as long you wear clean undergarments every day. However, this will depend on how much sweat or dribble is created throughout the days/weeks.
We (but not me) wear our undergarments for many reasons; one of them is to offer men more protection and a better fit. When it comes down to your selection process, be sure not just to take appearances into account but also what best matches your size!
This means they’ll keep everything where it needs to go so no unsightly bulges or issues with general movement crop up later on in life (or right now)! As well as making things like running easier by providing extra cushioning for sensitive areas such as thighs and hips when compared against other garments.
While many still love feeling liberated from restrictive fabrics by wearing boxers or going commando (which they should never do!), most men understand that we don’t want our balls slapping against each other when walking down the street – trust me.
7 Underwear Mistakes (Video)
The benefits of going underwear-free, while clear to some, are a personal choice. While we may be tempted (especially in the summer), doing so is unnecessary for everyone and can make you uncomfortable if something makes you feel self-conscious or embarrassed about your body.
Men often choose to go commando for more comfort, better sperm production, and less sweating. However, all of these negatives can be avoided by wearing comfortable hemp boxer briefs or loose cotton boxers that are breathable and have moisture-wicking features which will help with any sweat you might produce.
