  • Why would you care about a child's sperm count?? Sperm regenerates in case you didn't know everyday. No, he shouldn't be made fun of. Grown men wear briefs.

  • I think this is the same person that asked what size panties our daughters wear

  • if he wants to wear boxers he will tell you. yes boys that age do tease, so why not go get him some? does he want them? I think that was probally his way of telling you though. I wouldn't worry about his sperm count at 12

  • they do have what they call boxer briefs and I hear they are comfortable I don't think it should matter what type of underwear he is wearing as long as he is changing them everyday

  • If you can't ask your kid what kind of underwear he prefers how the hell are you ever going to talk to him about sex

  • If he is comfortable in them, Its fine, but you can always buy him a pack just to see if they would feel more comfortable.

  • There's nothing wrong with him still wearing briefs.

  • I think if they still want to wear briefs and are comfy with it, then let him... it should be his choice IMO....
