Experts Reveal Why You Should Go Commando For Bed

What you wear to bed might be doing you more harm than good, according to a new report in the Huffington Post.

Of course, you can't help but be fully dressed during the day. But at night, experts recommend going commando to let your parts breathe.

According to Dr. Alyssa Dweck, who co-wrote the book “V is for Vagina,” constantly wearing underwear can lead to bacterial growth, as moisture gets trapped in that area. Though breathable fabrics like cotton minimize this risk, gynecologists, including Gynotalk blogger Dr. Kelly, say the best thing to do is let it all hang out.

The same can be said for men — but for an entirely different reason.

Though men who wear briefs to sleep are at the same risk for bacterial infection as women, the more pressing concern is sperm health.

According to urologist Dr. Brian Steixner, testicles need to maintain a specific temperature to create healthy sperm. For men who wear underwear to sleep, their junk often gets too warm — thus cutting down on sperm production.

The bottom line is: nighttime is the perfect time to air it all out.
