Call The Glambulance: Skinny Jeans Can Lead to Twisted Testicles, Experts Say
Jay-Z famously said he doesn’t “wear skinny jeans ’cause [his] knots don’t fit.” Well, it looks like the family jewels don’t fit either.
Experts are saying skinny jeans are leading to painful testicle problems in men including “twisted testicles, bladder weakness and even urinary tract infections,” according to UK television personality Dr. Hilary Jones. Umm, ouch!
And in your case you were wondering what twisted testicles are, Jones explains: “…when tight trousers prevent the spermatic cord from moving freely, meaning it twists and leads to testicular torsion which cuts off the blood supply requiring immediate surgery to prevent a gangrenous testicle.”
Pause the beat. Immediate surgery? From a pair of jeans?
But…raise your hand if you weren’t the only ones who thought suffocating the testees wasn’t the smartest move? (And who wants to wear the same size pants as their boyfriend anyway).
What do you make of this study, Glamazons? Boysss, are you veto-ing skinny jeans for good?
