Goal??: I think you mean boxers? 1st, are you and a woman having fertility problems (unable to get pregnant?). If not, then your sperm count isn't an issue - wear boxers!
next, plenty of couples get pregnant with the male wearing briefs. If you cannot get pregnant talk to a doctor before you start worrying about your underwear.
Finally, a jockstrap would be just like briefs with reg to sperm count.
