Heat and damage - permanent
Some time ago I had read elsewhere that heat can damage semen in the testicle - there was some broohah about this due to using laptops (literally on the lap), and ensuing discussion about how men could soak in a certain temp hot tub as possible birth control. The information I had seen was rather vague.
In searching the forums for more info, it appears heat it a good thing for the muscle and ligaments, various ways to heat up with wet rags, ziplock bags, rice socks, IR lamps, and so on. I had come across a few bits and pieces of people saying to protect the testicles, etc etc, but again, they were rather vague. What I’m most curious/concerned about - is the damage done to the testicles permanent, or any risk of it becoming permanent? Or does it only affect the semen?
I searched the forum here for “heat damage testicle” without results, if this has been covered before, I’m not sure what the appropriate search terms would be.
Appreciate your input.
