Expert advice - Why men's underwear


OK, let's get one thing on the table straight away. This is a conversation about men, self-care, and their running underwear. And it’s a conversation that’s not made often enough.

 

When men’s underwear specialist SAXX asked over 500 men to define self-care, it wasn’t surprising that the majority said wellness is important, with 79% rating it at least 8 out of 10.

 

The survey revealed that wellness for men doesn’t necessarily mean going to the spa; it can be much simpler, like running or eating healthily. But the survey also revealed that few men know the important role high-quality underwear plays in feeling their best, especially during sporting activities.

 

When asked what parts of their bodies men think about most, eyes, face, and teeth all ranked higher than balls. This makes sense; while you might be told about some kale stuck in your teeth, no one is going to comment on your squished sack. But you’re going to feel that discomfort, and it’s going to affect your ability to do pretty much everything.

The survey revealed that 79% of men think about ball comfort daily. Given those numbers, you’d think that ball discomfort would be a common topic of discussion among men. However, of those surveyed:

  • 46% don’t talk about their ball care with anyone.
  • 32% only talk about ball care with their doctor.
  • 22% talk about ball care with a partner.

 

The lack of dialogue around ball discomfort - and how to remedy it - should change. It shouldn’t be taboo to talk about the most sensitive area on a man’s body. You’d have no problem asking your friends where they got their running shoes. So why wouldn’t you ask them where they got their high-quality underwear?

 

Too often, men make the unnecessary choice to suffer in silence, even though there are options to take better care of your balls - and yourself.

 

Nearly half of the men surveyed said that they haven’t thought about doing anything to help their ball care. And only a small percentage identified changing underwear as a solution. Something clearly needs to be done. As we know, wellness isn’t something to be taken for granted. It requires a proactive approach.

 

In order to help your body and mind, you should be buying high-quality underwear. Wearing soft, breathable, and moisture-wicking underwear is the next step on that journey. The SAXX BallPark Pouch™ and non-chafing Flat Out Seams™ features were designed with men’s anatomy - and comfort - in mind.

 

The “strong and silent” archetype means that men aren’t always acting on what’s making them uncomfortable, and that’s a huge problem. Speaking up and taking better care of your package is worth it - feeling comfortable and confident is a prize greater than any hunk of gold.

 

There’s a simple solution that can help address this problem: upgrading your underwear.
