Is it true that if a man only uses boxers, the lack of support will cause the testicles to drop later on in life?
I know this sounds silly, but I've heard it a few times before... just sounds kind of off to me, but curious to know if it's true.

However it's true that boxers allow to the testicles to hang away from the body and so cool down when needed. It is apparently proven, though I do not have the figures, that people who wear boxers have a slightly higher sperm count.
Plus they're comfier, for various reasons, than briefs. PS All this about testicles 'dropping' - how noticeable should this be? I've never noticed a difference, but my voice has definitely long since broken.
