According to scientists, sitting for hours with a laptop on your lap cranks up the temperature of your gonads, affecting sperm quality. Researchers hooked thermometers to the scrotum of 29 young men who were balancing a laptop on their knees. They found that even with a lap pad under the computer, the men's scrotum overheated quickly.
To prevent your testicles from turning sunny side-up, the only safe alternative, they said, is to keep that laptop on your desk. If you have no choice, limit your exposure to no more than half an hour and keep your legs as far apart as possible to keep your testicles cool.
