As a wise man once said, "Beauty is pain." From walking miles in sky-high heels (ouch!) to baring it all for bikini waxes (ouch!)—Yeah, we know.

But now guys are starting to feel the pangs of lookin' good, too. According to a report in the Telegraph, for one in 10 men who wear skinny jeans, that sexy, lean look is becoming a real pain in the...

Balls. (ouuuuchhh!)

Based on a study conducted by a leading male bladder-weakness brand in Britain, half of guys who wear too-tight pants experience bladder weakness, urinary tract infections, and, um, twisted testicles.

The report states: "Twisted testicles occur when tight trousers prevent the spermatic cord from moving freely, meaning it twists and leads to testicular torsion which cuts off the blood supply requiring immediate surgery to prevent a gangrenous testicle."

Other less common, but equally traumatic, symptons included low sperm count and fungal infection. And here we thought heels were bad. This is, um, kind of terrifying, no?
