Is no underwear bad?

I have been always wearing tight briefs all my life but read somewhere that it's not good for the testicles and so stopped wearing underwear completely. I now only wear shorts. Is it harmful in anyway by not wearing underwear any longer? Kindly advise.

Hi Wearing briefs is always safe especially when you are outside home.You can avoid it at home . Now coming to tight briefs. ..yes it is partly true that tight brief and jeans can cause temperature variations inside scrotum and can affect spermatogenesis  especially in men already having as you rightly said wearing loose briefs may be ideal .hope you are convinced. Best wishes
