So if you use a cell phone for 4 hours a day, your sperm count is lowered 25%!!

What I want to know is why people are so concerned about sperm counts. I'm not trying to impregnate anybody and neither is most of the male population of the developed world-- why should we want high sperm counts? Remember that ATOT member who posted that he was afraid he got his girlfriend pregnant? maybe that wouldn't have happened if he'd irradiated his testicles a little more.

So what if married men who are trying to make babies have to have sex more to increase the odds of fertilization? Shouldn't they enjoy that? Or maybe the type of man who talks on the phone for 4 hours a day doesn't enjoy sex with a woman???

240 x 30 days in a month = 7200 minutes a month plan?
What if it was during nights and weekends? :p

What if you just leave your phone in your pocket all day. Do you actually have to use the phone?

I store my cell phone behind my ball sack for this very reason. Bluetooth + Vibrating Ringer FTW!

Exactly how are you using that cell phone to have it affect your sperm count.

On second thought, i don't want to know...

The only people who talk on the phone for 4 hours a day produce no sperm to begin with.

Awesome! Now being a geek provides both social and biological birth controll.

On the other hand, it'll probably hasten this.

only a few spermies make it through so you need a lot if you wanna get the job done.

lower sperm count might not cut it if you really want to make a baby.

Who wants to make a baby anyway? They are expensive and a lot of trouble. It's like getting a dog that you have to commit to taking care of for 18+ years and spend huge amounts of money on.

Its is because you are TALKING like a WOMAN. Only women talk that much, therefor you are becoming one.

i know someone that does 6-7k min every month (confirmed)..he has unlimited plan though. i am sure my boss also does 5-7k a month, he's on the phone at least 4-6 hrs. a day, but some of this is in the office phone, the other guy does it all on his cell.
