Male Fertility & Sperm: Drink, Smoke, Get Fat, But Do NOT Wear Tight Underwear!

A recent study in the Journal of Human Reproduction, June 2012, showed that wearing tight fitting underwear is associated with a lower motile sperm concentration - A. C. Povey et al. This study also showed no correlation between sperm quality and obesity, smoking, or drinking, which is an unfortunate message to give dad's to be, as there is absolutely no doubt that the health of the father plays a role in the health of the off-spring, long term. Needless to say I am a little disgusted in how much press this is getting.
Another study confirms that infertile men have higher scrotal temperatures when compared to ‘fertile’ men - Zorgniotti AW, Sealfon AI - Journal of Repro Fertil. March 1988, which is associated with the type of work a man does and the style of underwear he sports!
It should be noted that neither the boxers or briefs referred to in these studies are specifically engineered with a mesh front pouch to help hold the testicles away from the body to allow for airflow, creating a cooler drier environment. Could something like this be an answer to helping reduce scrotal temperatures and aid in better sperm production, 'fertility underwear'?
Two other very important aspects of underwear and infertility must be highlighted;
1. when a couple has been trying to conceive for quite sometime, the romance in the bedroom suffers. Moving to boxers only makes this worse, as the 'sexy' that once was is now completely vanished.
2. The NON-organic fabrics that are typically grown and used in the manufacture of underwear are laden with chemicals known to be toxic to human reproduction.
*Therefore logically connecting the dots one would deduce that men's underwear that would be 'fertility friendly' would be designed to have a mesh front pouch that holds the boyz away from the body to keep them cool and dry, would be sexy, and would be made with organic fabric.
Why has this not been done? Well, actually it has! This is exactly the components that have been implemented in the creation of 'STUD Men's Fertility Friendly Underwear'. My wife and I are very proud of our product, and are happy to have endorsement from Dr. Ellington, the creator of Pre~seed fertility friendly lubricant, who are now selling STUD as a show of support.
