Laptops Not For The Male Lap...

Gents, is your laptop cooking your testicles?

Legitimate question in light of some recent studies.

The simple rationale here is that the hotter your testicles the lesser the quality of the sperm available. This research was recently published in the Journal of Fertility and Sterility. The study involved 29 men volunteering their scrotums so that the researchers could affix a thermometer.

It is probably not rocket science to understand that using a laptop on your lap will result in the temperature increasing in those regions where it sits. If your wondering, the research suggests that it only takes 10 to 15 minutes for the scrotum to overheat to a level that is unsafe. Although, according to the article that I read, the research is hardly definitive in the sense of how large the impact is on fertility.

I always new there was a reason why I used my laptop on a table.
