Educational Video Remix Makes Fertilization Look Like a Video Game

If more of the educational videos kids watched about a sperm's magical luge ride through the Fallopian tubes looked and sounded like this, you can bet someone would have made a "Journey of the Sperm" video game by now. It could still be a great game, but only if it were an ongoing MMO tournament that restarted every… » 12/29/13 5:00pm 12/29/13 5:00pm

The Fifty Shades of Grey Audition Script Was Naaaasty

Carrie Diaries actress Chloe Bridges was sufficiently weirded/grossed out by the Fifty Shades of Grey audition script. "There were three pages of sides that I was going to audition with," she said. "I read them and then was like, I really can't do this." *YIKES* » 9/11/13 10:20am 9/11/13 10:20am

A Complete Breakdown of the Nutritional Content of Semen

To swallow or not to swallow: that is the question. You can only really answer it for yourself, but we aim to help you make that decision an informed one. Here, we list every property found in an average splooge—protein, carbs, fat, cholesterol, etc.—and analyze what it means for you to ingest it in terms of… » 8/07/13 1:30pm 8/07/13 1:30pm

Wearing Kilt May Up Sperm Count, But Lowers Chance of Getting Some

That's not wind up their kilts, it's free-hanging haggis and groats! And guess what? When a commando Scot bring you back to their hillock abode with a roof of peat moss, they're gonna impregnate you with some of their Rowan jelly. (That's if they're not too busy tossing the caber into the loch.) (Sorry.) » 4/24/13 9:30am 4/24/13 9:30am

Daring Sperm Smugglers in Palestine Brave Israeli Jails,…

People try to sneak lots of miscellaneous contraband into prison, but how often do they try to sneak things that aren't people out of prison? Almost never, probably because the whole point of prison is that it doesn't have anything that anyone wants, except, in the case of Israeli prisons holding Palestinian prisoners, … » 2/24/13 5:00pm 2/24/13 5:00pm

Scientists Make Mice Eggs Out of Stem Cells; Could Someday Make Babies …

Scientists in Japan have produced a litter of healthy baby mice from eggs created entirely in a laboratory. The same team reportedly fabricated mouse sperm a year ago, but they say that that was no big. It's the fragile, fickle lady eggs that are the real challenge. And now they've done it! From scratch! Woooooooo! » 10/05/12 4:45pm 10/05/12 4:45pm

Get Your Jizz While the Getting's Good: Sperm Quality and Quantity Is…

In some parts of the world, there has been a considerable decline in sperm quality and quantity in recent years, according to reports from sperm banks as well as evidence from scientific research. The cause is not yet known, but some are pointing pollutants and a "modern Western lifestyle," which includes cellphones in… » 8/29/12 12:00pm 8/29/12 12:00pm

Semen Probably Isn’t a Magic Super Elixir After All

Earlier this week, we learned (again) about the restorative elixir of life that is semen, which can, according to spermspert Gordon Gallup, Jr. and his anonymous survey of 293 college women, cure depression, make women smarter and, possibly, fertilize eggs. This is just what semen does, Gallup's survey seemed to… » 8/26/12 4:00pm 8/26/12 4:00pm

Science Confirms That With Sex, Size Actually Does Matter

It turns out that it doesn't matter how fast sperm can swim when it comes to fertilizing an egg—it's all about its length. By studying the ejaculate traits of fruit flies (which must be the teeniest load on the face of this earth), scientists found that sperm that are longer and slower are more likely to fertilize an… » 8/03/12 11:20am 8/03/12 11:20am

Woman Sues FDA for the Right to Free Sperm

The law doesn't require people to get tested for STIs every time they bone someone new, because that would be impossible to mandate and also a little creepy; it's pretty much expected that consensual sex-having adults make their bed so they can lie/sleep with partners in it, etc. » 7/09/12 1:10pm 7/09/12 1:10pm

Thoughtful Gentlemen Are Obsessed With Male Contraception

Male contraception may not exist yet — doesn't it seem like it's always just on the horizon? — but eager dudes are already lining up in the thousands to try out alternative forms of birth control geared towards their semen. It's not that we want to make fun of guys like Lenny Smalls, who recently took it upon himself… » 6/14/12 2:40pm 6/14/12 2:40pm

Science Discovers That Sperm Aren't So Much Swimmers As They Are…

We've long been fed the image that sperm make their way to our eggs by wiggling their little tails and magically swimming up our reproductive tract to find the treasure at the end of the line. Well, new research is painting a decidedly less appealing picture of what actually happens when the little sperm get released… » 5/07/12 10:00pm 5/07/12 10:00pm

Conservative Alabama Politician Bill Johnson "Addicted" To Donating Sperm

Former Alabama gubernatorial candidate Bill Johnson, a conservative Christian who opposed gay marriage and unsuccessfully ran for governor in the 2010 GOP primary, is leaving his wife Kathy and her three children from a previous marriage for a new life in New Zealand with children he fathered via sperm donation.… » 5/05/12 5:30pm 5/05/12 5:30pm

American Men Are Almost Too Awesome At Making Jizz

While our manufacturing sector's kind of in the toilet, mining is giving people cancer and causing earthquakes, and our tech industry is running out of ideas for one-button devices to sell to yuppies, at least one sector of the American economy is running full steam — or rather, full balls — ahead: the sperm harvesting … » 4/05/12 7:15pm 4/05/12 7:15pm
