Tongue Spanking it for Science
In this funny article, it talks about how men's sperm is different in certain cases.

Quote:With the help of 21 men and some porn videos, The College of Wooster researchers showed that guys ejaculate faster and produce more, higher-quality sperm when they masturbate to a "novel female stimulus."

In other news: water is wet.
Seriously though, the article may be interesting for those with fertility problems.

My favorite line though has to be:
Quote:In case you're wondering what it took to get the guys to participate in a study like this, the answer is not much. As Sirot explained, "Each subject voluntarily participated for free and no compensation was needed."

Thumbsup

These guys must have been provided with better mags than I view. Pretty non-specific results- "novel female stimulus" could be koalas whacking kangaroos, or porcupines throwing their spines at wolverines, depending on the interviewee's particular sexual bent. Yep, I have a twisted sense of humor.

Not really twisted as much as stupid. Drinking Beverage

Not offended, bro. Just a lame attempt at shock humor.

Bullshit article.

When you ejaculate, you don't produce "new" sperm. That sperm already exists. New sperm is in the pipeline (so to speak) but won't actually be available for some time i.e. months...

"It has long been believed that sperm take 90 days (3 months) to be made and ejaculated. Dr. Turek recently discovered and published that in fact this time frame is actually much shorter. Sperm develop in the testicles for 50-60 days and are then excreted into the coiled ducts of the epididymis and complete their maturation for another 14 days."

These guys were asked to masturbate over a 15 day period. Might they have come faster and/or ejaculated a greater volume if they saw something they liked in the last video. Maybe. But so what? Their sperm wasn't produced by the sight of a new actress.

And they published this in a journal called Evolutionary Psychological Science?? WTF??? When you have a discovery that may well have great effects on the success rate of assisted reproduction, you publish in one of two journals: Fertility and Sterility (US) or Human Reproduction (UK). These are the NEJM and The Lancet of Assisted Reproduction.

Meh. Bullshit or not, it was still funny and the woman on the headline was hot.

I, myself, am pure in word and deed. I have not looked at that image. Was she, by any chance, blonde and wearing purple lingerie?
