Studies have shown that wearing skinny jeans could be dangerous to your health, with risks including bladder discomfort, testicle torsion (twisted tested - ouch) and a lowerd sperm count. However, I think the horror of trying to fit into a pair of jeans two sizes too small, not to mention the fact that any sudden movement or over stretch could cause a rip at any moment, is all a worthy sacrifice in the name of fashion. If you are lucky enough to even get your jeans above your knees you are then posed with the question: where am I going to put my nads? I mean toward the left pocket or the right? This decision is usually comes down to deciding to risk having a funny episode every time my phone vibrates,or risking turning awkwardly and cutting them on my keys. There is no other option but to go straight down the middle. It's safe in the middle, so one might think. However many men are finding that as a result of wearing skinny jeans it's all starting to get a bit delicate. Men up and down the country are starting to get their testicles in a twist and as a result of the dreaded drainpipes are finding that they having to stomach bladder pain like never before. A study of 2000 males conducted by Tena Men – the bladder weakness and incontinence experts - showed that 1 in 50 could be subdued to groin discomfort and bladder weakness. 25% of those admitted to bladder problems already and 2% have twisted their testicles in the process of wearing skinny jeans - and say that they still wear them because they look good.
