If you’re using a laptop to maximize your brain and work performance, make sure you’re not nuking the sperm factory and the next generation.

Laptops roast “nuts”

Laptops produce quite a bit of heat, so if you’re someone who uses your laptop on your lap, you’re at risk of overheating the sperm factory. Keeping the nether regions cool is important, this is why the testicles are “outside” of the body – the sertoli cells which make the sperm prefer a slightly cooler temperature. Normal body temperature is a tad too hot at 37C. Raising the temperature of the testicles, decreases the number of sperm produced (sperm count) and the sperm that are produced, are typically poor swimmers. Meager sperm production can mean trouble fathering kids down the line.

Laptops want to “be cool”

If you bothered to read the instruction manual that comes with the laptop, you will find that laptop manufacturers don’t want you to use the laptop on your lap or any other uneven surface. The reason is that you obstruct the air vents stopping air circulation around the machine. Clogged-up air vents result in the machine overheating putting pressure on the electronic components increasing the chances of a meltdown.

Lift that laptop

So, lift that laptop away from the lap and onto “a desk”. Both the laptop and the sperm factory will be grateful.

Keep Cool.
