    Scientists warn of sperm count crisis

    http://richarddawkins.net/news_artic...s#.UMEl-7bajJg

    The reproductive health of the average male is in sharp decline, the world's largest study of the quality and concentration of sperm has found.

    Between 1989 and 2005, average sperm counts fell by a third in the study of 26,000 men, increasing their risk of infertility. The amount of healthy sperm was also reduced, by a similar proportion.

    The findings confirm research over the past 20 years that has shown sperm counts declining in many countries across the world. Reasons ranging from tight underwear to toxins in the environment have been advanced to explain the fall, but still no definitive cause has been found........

    The worldwide fall in sperm counts has been accompanied by a rise in testicular cancer rates have doubled in the last 30 years and in other male sexual disorders such as undescended testes, which are indicative of a "worrying pattern", scientists say.

    Maybe the overpopulation of the world will slow down a bit.

    No big loss to me really, no girl I currently know is really worth trying to get into a relationship where sex could be a possible outcome.

    Hopefully it will play into an upcoming Lack of Traffic Crisis.

    Your hand just breathed a sigh of relief. You won't be cheating on her for the foreseeable future.

    A twice a week order of Rocky Mountain Oysters will take care of that problem.

    Haven't really done that in a while. I just don't really think about sex all that much. Right sort of woman comes into my life and that will probably change but I'm not really in any hurry.

    All kidding aside, that is very wise. Love usually happens when you least expect it and aren't looking.
