Are Laptops Cooking Men's Testicles?

If you sit with a computer on your lap, it can increase the temperature there to a point which could affect sperm quality if you are male.

Researchers attached thermometers to the scrotums of 29 men who were balancing a laptop on their knees. Even with a lap pad under the computer, the men's scrotums overheated quickly.

Fox News reports:

“Under normal circumstances, the testicles' position outside of the body makes sure they stay a few degrees cooler than the inside of the body, which is necessary for sperm production ... According to the American Urological Association, nearly one in six couples in the US have trouble conceiving a baby, and about half the time the man is at the root of the problem.”
