"LAPTOP computers really should not be kept in our laps as they may have something to do with male infertility, research has found.

When men use their laptops in their laps instead of on their desks, they may be overheating those male parts, which, in turn, may be damaging their sperm, research by Fertility and Sterility found.

The authors note that other research has shown that warming the scrotum more than 1.8 degrees (one degree Celsius) is enough to damage sperm." " target=_new>Read more

I have owned several laptops since 1996, and I have never put a laptop on my lap. A dude looks effeminate with a laptop sitting on his lap. A real man sits with his legs spread open, not with his legs stuck together so his computer won`t fall of his lap.

Any guy who keeps a laptop on his lap deserves to have his testicles shrink to the size of peas.

Dude, if you plan on having a family one day, don`t put your laptop on your lap! A laptop overheating your family jewels may sound nutty, but the research was conducted by a urologist at the State University of New York.
