Guys wash your jeans. The thought of my man parts being cocooned in what essentially is a petri dish of my own sweat, other's sweat, fluids and bacteria sends a small shiver down my spine. (exaggerating but you get the idea)

You're probably right. With the exception of a pair of vintage Lee jeans, all my denim for the last 7-8 years has been raw or 1-wash selvedge. I cycle year round, and do a decent amount of dirtbaggy leisure activities. In other words, I destroy jeans, no matter how well made they are. I went through a few years of avoiding washing, eventually I just gave up on it, preferring to maintain some semblance of cleanliness. I'd hazard a guess that most people in the no-wash camp lead a far cleaner lifestyle than do I, so they can afford to go 6-12 months of effective wear. If I were to do that, my jeans would be rotting off my legs by the end.

 

That said, I wear denim less and less these days - prefer shorts, linen trousers, outlier pants, or lightweight wool in the summer, and heavyweight worsted wool or flannel in the cold.

Your right on all accounts. I'm a house cat basically. I sit in front of a computer most of my life. As for cleaning my jeans I like to spray them with a garden hose and let them dry in the sun.

as I walk through the meadow it seems,
I've come across a babbling stream.
Glistening with the day star's beams.

The thought of doing any of my dirtbaggy activities (climbing specifically) in some kind of raw denim makes me cringe, but that could just be because I'm still in the very very early stages of breaking in my first pair.

I got a pair of lightly used Unbranded 221s (size 31) I'm willing to part with for fitty, if you want a of pair fast fading selvage you dont mind beating to a pulp.

The stitching on my Weird Guys is starting to come undone at one of the leg openings:

 

 

Any recommendations for a fix?

They're not that new, I've had them for a good 8 months or so. Mostly just want to fix it before I wash them and risk unravelling the thread further.

Is it me or do Naked & Famous Selvedge Duck Canvas jeans highlight the testicles a bit too extremely? I tried Weird Guy and Skinny Guy and I saw a clear outline of my most forward testicle. It's a shame because the jeans would have fit well otherwise and I like the color. What's the deal here? Is it the cut? I think the jeans might be a tad lighter than other brands. This might also happen if I wear shitty, malformed chinos.

And it's not just me! This model's balls are doing the same maneuver that happened with me. I'd literally have to tape them back for this not to be an issue:

What are some good alternatives to the Selvedge Duck (same color/material, other brands)?

I have them and I have no idea what you're talking about.
