Every man likes to wear the tight jeans just like the girls. Men should know however that fashion comes with a price.

Embracing tight jeans can be the pinnacle of fashion but is likely to squeeze their male hosts too tight in a particularly sensitive area, research shows.

British researchers warn that tight jeans are responsible for the emergence of health problems near the groin, the news media reported.

The tight jean has been related to a number of health problems, including low sperm counts, twisted testicles, urinary incontinence, urinary infections and fungal irritations, the report said.

Celebrities such as Russell Brand have embraced the skinny jeans look.

"I have seen several cases of men who have twisted the testicles due to wearing jeans that are too tight," a doctor told the news media.

"Wearing tight jeans for an extended period of time can lead to urinary tract infections that lead to an overactive bladder."

A study of 2,000 British men found that one in 10 experienced an unpleasant side effect after using tight jeans.

Half the men in the study reported discomfort in the groin, while more than a quarter had bladder problems.

One in five suffered a testicular torsion, a condition that occurs when tight pants prevent the spermatic cord from moving freely, which means that blood is cut off. This requires immediate surgery.

The use of tight trousers has also been linked to lower sperm count as a result of the scrotum overheating and damages the process of sperm production. Men who are trying to conceive with their partner are encouraged to wear looser underwear and outerwear.
