Say goodbye to your pyjamas. It's seems that wearing underwear in bed is less healthy.
Alyssa Dweck, a gynaecologist from New York, advises her patients to sleep without wearing any underwear. Sleeping nakedly, is not only pleasant, it is also better for our health. According to a recent study, men who wear tight underwear at night increase the chance of becoming unfertile. Your genitals need exactly the right temperature in order to optimise sperm production. If your crotch is too warm, then this is detrimental to the sperm. In the long run, this can cause serious problems.
Women too had best leave their panties outside the bed. The bacteria from the underwear can cause chafed or irritated skin to become infected. When the genitals are constantly covered - by a fabric which does not absorb and that is not moisture-wicking - this creates the perfect environment for fungi and bacteria.
Do you dislike sleeping in the nude? Then you can consider buying loose-fitting, cotton pants, which you can wear like pyjamas.
