Heat to the scrotum can damage sperm or cause low count
I have read, in a few places, that sperm needs to be kept at a slightly lower temperature than body temp. to stay healthy, and that this is the reason that our testes are outside the body. I have also heard that some chefs encunter problems in this area, due to standing in front of a hot stove for 8 hours + a day. The heat can damage sperm.
This had led me to pose the question.
When i warm up i use a cup of hot water, and dip the old fella in. This means that the hot cup is pushed right up against my nuts, and is going to heat them up. I’ve started putting a folded sock in between them and the cup to try to combat this. I just dont know the exact effects of 10-15 mins a day of heat on the sperms but i do know that heat is not good for them. Just a thought on safety precautions there, hope it’s helpful.
