Title: ALL POIS'ers- WHAT TYPE OF UNDERWEAR DO YOU WEAR?
Post by: jacksonsean on August 24, 2013, 02:27:53 PM
Now this may sound like a peculiar question, but the other day I remembered that I got POIS for the first time roughly two weeks after I changed from wearing boxer briefs to very loose boxers. Now, it is highly likely that there is no link between the underwear that we wear and POIS however its been playing on my mind so I thought I would just try to find out if there was any correlation between the two amongst members on this forum.

I would appreciate it if you took a minute to answer the poll.

One of the problems we have is that the onset of POIS is progressive, unless you are one of the unfortunate ones who's had it since puberty.

So one day we feel it, and it just happened to appear at the same time as something else, so it feels like it was that something else that started the POIS.

Unfortunately the relationship, especially at first, is fairly indirect. We have an orgasm, and initially, maybe don't feel the symptoms for a couple of days, so don't relate it to the orgasm. Then the day you put loose boxer shorts, the symptoms star, so it seems to be the boxer shorts.

Who knows. Maybe it IS. But I always ask, "If it's boxer shorts, why don't many, may more have POIS.

It's not a bad question, we have to ask. And we can all answer, but probably won't be sure, even if the majority say that they wear "such-and such" shorts, because we need a control group, who wore "the other shorts", and DON'T have POIS. Then a study that shows the figures for most of the world.

Anyways, I wear boxer shorts, now, but for a good long time, probably even coincident with the start of my POIS didn't wear ANY shorts. I don't have  POIS now, but not becasue of the shorts, but because of niacin..

Oh, well. That's why we are doing professional research. It's going to start to become intresting in November.

I've worn boxers for as long as I can remember, and I really don't think there is any link between me getting sick and them. Daveman brings up a good point about certain events or things that coincide with the start of pois, but they might not have any relation to pois.

For example, exactly ten years ago in Aug. 2003 at my home in Miami I was accidently zapped with electricity while trying to remove a pool filter. Shortly after that incident was when my pois started. For a very long time I kept thinking that event was the cause of all my weird symptoms. Eventually I convinced myself it was not. Now I know almost for sure that it is unlikely because there are plenty of people shocked who never develop pois, and there are plenty who have pois who were not shocked. So there are probably a lot of coincidences out there, but they might not be the actual cause.
