"Scientists put drops of healthy men’s semen under a laptop downloading data; after four hours, a quarter of the sperm had stopped swimming. Only 14% of sperm kept away from the computer did the same. Meanwhile, 9% of sperm under the computer had DNA damage, some three times more than the control sperm.  But, no studies have actually examined the effect of laptop use on fertility and pregnancy."

No mention of any effect on erections.

I can count on the fingers of one hand the number of times I've used my laptop while it was on my lap. If there's a table or counter or any hard surface available, it's sitting on that.

My laptop spends about 30% of its time on my chest actually, while I lay and watch films or read. It will be interesting to follow this line of research. We could view it as a decent contraceptive! ;p

how's that?

edit... are you assuming that the kids of porn watching daddys will have evolved to be immune to the radiation? ;p
