Seam of pants causing testicle pain?

I’ve come to find that wearing pants with a thicker seam that puts pressure on the urethra through the perineum seems to cause both discomfort in my urethra and increased sensitivity and pain in my testicle. Sitting for long periods of time has the same effect, regardless of pants.

Anyone else ever found this? The obvious response of “don’t wear those pants” is one thing, but I’m really interested in why this is happening and if it gives a clue to my chronic discomfort.

Pants, underwear, chair…all have an impact on me.

Yes. Any jeans that fit closely enough not to get the “Dad jeans” label from my kids can be uncomfortable. Same goes for snug underwear. In the beginning, I found the support more comfortable - now, I’d just as soon go without.
