Keep 'EM COOL
TESTICULAR HEALTH MATTERS.
What can you use Stud Briefs for?
Stud Briefs helps improve testicular, scrotal, and testicular vein health. It, therefore, provides benefits for many associated scrotal and testicular diseases. Here is a list of diseases that Stud Briefs can help with:
*Note: Stud Briefs does not treat infections. It can, however, help with associated pain/discomfort, as well as related swelling.
**Reduces the coils' damage to the testicular veins (this reduces associated pain/discomfort and swelling).
How does Stud Briefs work?
Stud Briefs was designed by 2 male fertility experts: Dr. Steve Greenwood and fertility author Daniel Johnson. Stud Briefs uses a patented Crotch Mesh Technology and unique design to provide optimal testicular cooling and scrotal support.
1. Testicular Cooling:
Why Testicular Temperature Matters:
The testicles have enzymes and organelles that only function at lower temperatures. Optimal testicular function is at 2°C (3-4°F) below normal body temperature. Elevated scrotal temperatures result in testicular atrophy, impaired testosterone and infertility.
Testicular function: Only takes 3°C (4-6°F)!
Elevating average daily testicular temperature by just 3°C (4-6°F) can completely halt sperm and testosterone production.
The fact is simply that the modern lifestyle is hot! We need to actively identify more and more ways of keeping our testicles cool and healthy. Many studies indicate that as long as no permanent damage develops, scrotal cooling will restore normal testicular health and function.
Left: Normal underwear traps heat. The 34.9°C (upper arrows) shows trapped heat release when pulling the underwear down. The lower arrows demonstrate trapped heat; the testicles cannot release heat to cool down. The area is darker because no heat is ventilating. Right: Stud Briefs keep the lower abdominal and pelvic areas 1.9 degrees cooler by allowing heat to dissipate (upper arrows). The lower arrows demonstrate that the testicles are releasing heat. Released heat shows as a bright color. The testicles can cool as a result.
2. Scrotal Support
Proper scrotal support can be very therapeutic. Scrotal support improves testicular circulation and prevents blood pooling, e.g., from varicocele or during high-intensity activity. It reduces lymphatic pooling and helps treat hydrocele. It further helps reduce inflammation and protect against microtrauma from saddle sports (e.g., biking, horseback riding, sledding, etc.)
The problem is that almost every single underwear out on the market gets scrotal support wrong.
Support + Overheating = Testicular Damage.
Regular supporters, jockstraps, and briefs underwear are unhealthy because they provide scrotal support and, at the same time, over-heat the testicles. Support and overheating together cause testicular damage.
Think about it: The testicles cool by sagging down to cool (cremaster reflex). Supporters prevent the cremaster reflex and at the same time trap excess heat.
Support + Cooling = Testicular Healing.
Stud Briefs on the other than get all of the benefits of scrotal support, plus cooling. That's why they're healthy and also beneficial for many scrotal diseases.
When should you wear Stud Briefs:
Wear Stud Briefs all day!
Wear Stud Briefs all day long. The support and cooling will promote testicular health all day long and protect against the day's risk factors.
Optional: You may avoid wearing Stud Briefs for the first hour of the day; however, ensure to wear them for the remainder of the day.
Wear Stud Briefs when you're physically active (gym, biking, walking, running, yoga, weight lifting, sports, etc.), when you're sitting (for work, commute, or at home), and through any other daily activity!
What to do at night:
At nighttime, take off Stud Briefs and perform the following exercises while lying on your back:
Note: Make sure to perform the above either when lying on your back or in an inversion (e.g., legs up the wall pose). Inversions enhance testicular blood circulation, flush out pooled blood, and bring new healthy, nourishing blood to the testicles.
A little bit of coconut oil, almond oil, and avocado oil is healthy, anti-inflammatory, and promotes testicular, scrotal, and penile health. Avoid baby oil, Vaseline, and synthetic oils.
Note: The above takes about 2-5 minutes.
How to wash & dry Stud Briefs
Stud Briefs are washer and dryer friendly. Wash with cold water and dry on low heat.
Ideally, if you want maximum lifespan, you would hand-wash and air dry. However, this is not necessary.
Get Stud Briefs on!
Stud Briefs can provide unmatched support because their design is tight and snug. Don't worry if they feel a little tight on your first wear. They will adjust to your body's shape and feel great after 1-3 wears!
Get your Stud Briefs on making sure your penis is in the front portion of the mesh and your scrotum in the supportive pouch. Then, enjoy and feel the breeze on your balls all day long!
What is the best underwear for varicocele?
What is the best underwear for testicular health and varicocele? You will be surprised by what you learn.
We will be passing the verdict on the benefits of going commando vs. wearing boxers, briefs, or stud briefs for varicocele and fertility. The court is now in session--all rise!
Going Commando (Not Wearing Underwear)
Look--going commando has its perks. It feels comfortable, cool, and free. It does have benefits in some cases. But, the same things that make it beneficial also make it non-ideal for varicocele. Think of it as a double-edged sword!
Going commando is more comfortable for most people because it's free and allows the scrotum and penis to move unrestricted. Freedom is a great feeling; that's why so many guys love it. All is good here--comfort is good.
In every case, going commando is cooler than wearing some fabric, unless I guess if you have some cooling gadget or ice in your underpants! I don't recommend cooling gadgets or ice underwear--because your testicular temperature naturally fluctuates and needs to self-modulate. Anyhow--all is also good here. Going commando keeps your balls cool, which is benefits varicocele.
The real problem arises because you have no scrotal support. The freedom might sound good, but it's detrimental for varicocele. A lack of support means increased swelling. Varicocele also damages the normal cooling mechanism of the testicles and increases scrotal sagging. So, not having support is the main downfall of going commando.
Some of our clients say that going commando helps them, and others say that they can't go without support. Going commando should be recommended on a person-by-person basis. The fine balancing act is cooling vs. support. Some benefit more from cooling than the negative impact of having no support. For others, the cooling benefits are not even close to being enough to balance out the engorged and irritated veins. So, you have to try it for yourself to find out if it will work for you.
Verdict: 6/10. Going commando may be helpful for some and but is detrimental for others.
Briefs are high-risk, high-reward for varicocele. They provide really great support for the scrotum, but at what cost?
It's important to know that every varicocele case is different requires a different treatment. There are two major challenges with varicocele:
So, again, we have a balancing act: Temperature vs. support. Are briefs beneficial for varicocele? Again, it all depends on the individual case. If in your case, support is more important than over-heating, then they'll provide you benefits. However, if overheating is the main issue, you need to stay away from briefs.
From a long-term perspective, briefs tend in almost every case to worsen varicocele and increase testicular sensitivity and the risk for infertility.
Verdict: 4.75/10. Briefs may be useful for temporary relief but will almost always worsen varicocele over time.
Now, boxers are unique in that they are only bad for varicocele. They don't provide support. And, the extra fabric is always going to be hotter than going commando. Boxers may generally be a little cooler than briefs, but they still don't provide support. Moreover, boxers are hotter than briefs when sitting down because they contain more fabric to trap heat and reduce ventilation.
In every case, you're better off going commando.
Verdict: 1/10. Again, boxers have no benefit for varicocele and can only worsen the disease.
Stud Briefs have the best of both words:
Stud Briefs are beneficial for varicocele and testicular health in 4 different ways:
Verdict: 9.25/10. Stud Briefs are therapeutic for varicocele.
