Handsome men make less sperm

    Lotharios who are lucky in lust may not - in one sense at least - be the biggest shots in the bedroom, a new theory suggests.

    Less attractive men with fewer notches on their belts are likely to be more productive between the sheets, it is claimed.

    Males with the opportunity to have sex a lot would be likely to produce less sperm on each occasion than those making fewer sexual conquests.

    Researchers modeled the concept of "spreading sperm" mathematically in a paper to be published in the journal American Naturalist.

    Does that take into account masturbation? Hot or not, we all jerk it.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I'll keep that in mind for when my (presently non-existent) lover/partner and I want to start a family.

    Supply and demand I suppose.

    I guess if you're beautiful, in order to impregnate somebody, you have to orgasm multiple times.

    or maybe if one's handsome, he allocates more of his resources to the looks department and less to the juice department, hence that inadequacy.



    Just a theory though.

    Who cares? If I shoot a bucket or shoot a shotglass I still got off, it still felt good, we're both probably happy... Not like I'm trying to get pregnant here...

    Natural selection favors good traits being grouped together, so I would of thought that pretty guys make more sperm, but I guess if they are having more sex then they don't need the same amount as an unattractive person that doesn't have sex as much. As an ecologist it is an interesting sounding paper, but I don't think many people on here are trying to get pregnant.

    All it says is people who have sex more may produce less sperm. But It's pretty well known that you'll offer less little buddies per shot if you shoot more often; you have less time to refill.

    Aka, if I'm going at it with the hand 3 times a day, I'm still producing less per skeet than if I had sex each day . . . Just cause I'm fucking gorgeous doesn't mean I have less sperm. . . I'll get any bitch pregnant.

    "Researchers" ? Really? This is research? It makes very little sense.

    And that's putting aside the subjective bias inherent in claiming a difference between "attractive" and "less attractive" men.

    Who cares? We're gay, shitholes don't get pregnant so sperm count is irrelevant.

    Look at the bright side - you won't have accidental pregnancies!

    If you have demonstrably less sperm than a less attractive male you would have to reproduce (or attempt to reproduce) at such a high rate to prove this theory that it is improbable in humans. I could see this take shape in animals, but considering the many other factors besides attraction that play into human mate selection, I don't expect the paper to hold much water.

    Reminds me of a sign that used to be over the bar cash register at the Minneapolis Eagle:

    Drink 'til he's cute

    A year later on a trip to the Sturgis, South Dakota motorcycle rally I saw a sticker with the same wording, just the right size to put on my motorcycle. I must have lost my senses to have then parked my bike in Sturgis among 100s of thousands of Harley riders, but no one bothered me. Nor anywhere else during the next few years I owned that bike with the sticker on it.
