Fertility among men looking to procreate may be as simple as changing one's clothing, according an article published in the Scottish Medical Journal - especially if it means donning a kilt. According to the author Erwin Kompanje, anecdotal reports that men who wear Scottish kilts boast better sperm quality and fertility have long been in circulation. In order to find out, the researcher, who hails from Erasmus University Rotterdam's medical school, analyzed more than heterogeneous observational studies published between and - a survey that revealed a global downward trend in sperm count over the last 50 years, particularly in Westernized countries. And while the author agrees that the reasons for the decline are "complex and speculative and could include widespread environmental pollution and life-style changes," he also points to the fact that clothing typified in many Westernized have been shown to affect the temperature of the scrotum. In all, adequate spermatogenesis the process in which a sperm cell develops requires that the scrotum be 3 degrees Celsius less than the rest of the body.

Also kilts continue to be worn by male Irish dancers.

As we've reported previously, heat is really bad for sperm -- to the extent that a polyester scrotum sling is actually an effective form of contraception. So it's probably not surprising that the opposite might be true: that not wearing underwear at all might be a fertility booster. Enter this author, who argues that traditional Scottish kilts and perhaps other traditional skirt-like garments may have originally arisen because they reduce scrotal temperature and thus increase fertility. Any volunteers out there want to help test this hypothesis? The anecdotal evidence that wearing a Scottish kilt has influence on reproductive potential: how much is true?
