Yes, recent studies have shown that the use of the kilt, the traditional tartan-patterned Scottish dress that boys and men from this land wear with proud, seems to improve the quality of their semen.

The traditional, healthier and even manlier way of wearing this dress is without underpants, and it is that very looseness what increases sperm production, leading to a subsequent increase un sperm concentration.

The scrotum, being some degrees below the temperature of the rest of the body, optimizes spermatogenesis, that is why Scottish men that choose that attire see their semen quality improved.

This study was carried out by a group of Scottish researchers and their results were published in the Scottish Medical Journal. According the their research, men who has been using the kilt for years have better sperm concentration levels. Moreover, a boost in the fertility of these men was confirmed.
