They might be a staple of the well-dressed geek’s wardrobe ,

but skinny jeans aren’t doing you any favors. In fact, they

might be causing you real, physical damage.


ABC recently interviewed Dr. Karen Boyle from Greater

Baltimore Medical Center, who has recently seen cases of

women suffering pain from wearing tight jeans. She explains :

“This disorder is called Meralgia Paresthetica and it’s a

disorder that occurs when one of the nerves that runs in

the outer part of a thigh gets compressed. The pressure

on it causes symptoms of tingling, numbness and pain in

the outer part of the thigh.”

According to Boyle, sufferers report a floating sensation—

basically, because they can’t feel their lower legs—along with

pain in the thighs. Ouch. Unfortunately for women, the

problem can be exacerbated by high heels, which cause the

pelvis to tilt, increasing the pressure on the nerves in


Still, men have to face up to the fact that cosseting jeans

reduce airflow around the crotch, resulting in higher

temperatures. And the knock on effect of warmer balls is,

sadly, a lower sperm count.

To alleviate nerve damage, Boyle suggests buying skinny

jeans with a little stretch to them. And whatever you do, if

you get pain or numbness in your legs thanks to tight jeans,

shift up a size—otherwise, you’re risking doing permanent

damage to your nerves.

As for curing the overheating, well, I’ll leave that to your imagination.
