    Abstract: The present invention relates to underwear for men. Information that it is good to maintain the underbody (genital organs) of men cool have been already been attested in scientific theses of foreign universities. It has been proved that the spermatogenic ability of men (genital organs) is further higher in an environment lower by 2 to 4 Celsius than body temperature. However, despite the above-mentioned scientific evidence, underwear for men up to now has been produced in the same simple shape for protection against the outside without distinction from underwear for women. The present invention relates to 21 century underwear for men which is different from conventional underwear for men and which causes improvement in skin health and reproductive ability in a sanitary and health manner.

    Abstract: Male infertility due to reduced sperm count has received dramatically increased scientific attention in recent years, particularly the effect of excessive testicular heat on sperm motility. Currently all products designed for testicular cooling are prohibitively cumbersome, or potentially toxic. While ice can be applied directly to the testicles, this invention provides and a convenient and comfortable alternative that does not exist today: underwear specifically designed to be fitted with a freezable gel pack, permitting users to keep moving around. Researchers increasingly believe that this sort of cooling can have a positive effect on sperm health, perhaps providing another alternative to other expensive and invasive fertility treatments.

  • Patent number: 8458819
    Abstract: An undergarment with powder dispenser and method of use. A powder dispenser is attached to an undergarment torso rear. Powder is placed within the powder dispenser and diffuses through a powder-permeable powder dispenser front wall onto the skin of a user wearing the undergarment with powder dispenser. The powder dispenser extends downwards from an undergarment torso waist substantially 80% of the way to an undergarment crotch. A powder dispenser rear wall top edge elastic keeps powder within the powder dispenser from escaping. Downwardly-sloping powder dispenser baffles extend alternatingly from powder dispenser rear wall side edges, creating a serpentine powder path to improve powder distribution. Method of use steps include inserting anti-chaffing powder through a powder dispenser mouth and into a powder dispenser reservoir, and then allowing it to diffuse through the powder dispenser front wall onto the wearer, thus helping avoid skin irritation in the buttock, crotch, and thigh areas.
