Read on to find out where that number came from, how ejaculation affects your prostate cancer risk, what happens to your sperm, and more. The article details the results of a study of 31, men published in the December issue of European Urology. The study in question relied on self-reported answers — once in and once in — about how often they ejaculated each month and whether they developed prostate cancer.
Men are doomed. Everybody knows this. We're obviously all doomed, the women too, everybody in general, just a waiting game until one or another of the stupid things our stupid species is up to finally gets us.

Men who delay starting a family have a ticking "biological clock" -- just like women -- that may affect the health of their partners and children, according to Rutgers researchers. The study, which reviewed 40 years of research on the effect of parental age on fertility, pregnancy and the health of children, was published in the journal Maturitas. While the medical profession has no clearly accepted definition of when advanced paternal age begins -- it ranges from 35 to 45 -- infants born to fathers over 45 have risen 10 percent in the United States over the past 40 years, likely due to assisted reproductive technology.
Does the problem of having genetically weak adolescent sperm really need to be added to this list? Scientists at the University of Cambridge have suggested this is the case after carrying out a study involving more than 24, parents and their children. The analysis focused on tiny genetic differences between parents and offspring, which are assumed to be caused by copying errors in the egg or sperm cells.
Sometimes the things you'd never bring up in polite company are the most interesting. Case in point: semen. It's one of those sex -related subjects that's shrouded in so much mystery, it becomes even more intriguing.
What are the perspectives of adolescents conceived using surrogacy, egg or sperm donation regarding their conception and the third party involved? The majority of adolescents described feeling indifferent about their conception, and yet simultaneously reported an interest in the third party involved, or were in contact with them. There is an assumption that children conceived through reproductive donation will feel negatively about their origins in adolescence. However, little is known about the views of adolescents who have been conceived through different types of reproductive donation.
There are a lot of downsides to being male. We age faster and die younger. Every 16 days or so the male body raises a whole new army of them hundreds of millions strong.
Women face the brunt of societal pressure to have children before a certain age, but a new study concludes that the so-called biological clock is a concern for men, too. The authors suggest that more men may want to consider banking their sperm if they intend to wait until later in life to start a family. The paper, published in the journal Maturitas, is a review of the medical literature on older fathers, defined as starting between the ages 35 and 45, depending on which researchers you ask. It highlights studies showing a variety of increased health risks incurred by the partners and children of these older dads.
