  1. Ugly men make more sperm during sex, study suggests

    WOMEN wanting to get pregnant should find themselves an ugly man, new research suggests.

    Scientists have found attractive males produce less sperm during sex.

    Researchers think good-looking males are biologically geared to hold back their sperm in each encounter to increase their chance of impregnating more females.

    But unattractive males know they are not going to bed so many females - so when they do get lucky they give it all they've got.

    The findings from the University of Oxford and University College London are backed up by studies of chickens and fish, but researchers think they could well apply to humans too.

    "Human attractiveness is complicated and influenced by a number of factors including cultural preferences," said UCL researcher Sam Tazzyman.

    "Nonetheless, ejaculate size and sperm quality are likely to have been moulded by similar forces, like attractiveness and the number of sexual partners, that are important in other species."

    Reporting the findings on the university's website he said: "The more attractive a male is, the more females will be willing to mate with him, reducing the value of each mating to him. This means it is optimal for him to contribute fewer sperm per mating."

    "Although this reduces fertility per mating, it maximises the number of offspring he sires overall.

    "Less attractive males secure fewer matings but value each of them more highly, and by allocating more sperm to each mating make the most of their meagre opportunities.

    "This leads to the rather paradoxical prediction that matings with attractive males may be less fertile than those with unattractive males."
  2. No-one, and I mean no-one, should be mating chickens and fish!!
    I don't care if it is for science.
  3. I think the scientists are onto something here..
  4. And I thought that Natural Selection had dealt with problem.
  5. Fixed! :grin:

    What's my proof? The inversely proportional relationship between being single v married to the same female..... maybe it was just her.... only 6 months and 3 weeks to go before the signing on that bottom line will be undone by the Magistrate.... and 1 month and 2 weeks before I become a dad. :)
  6. My only question is this:

    how the hell do these people know what constitutes an attractive chicken or a sexy fish?!

  7. They watched the chicken lover on South Park :grin:
  8. WOW! :shock:

    That's one HOT chick ! :p
  9. sweet!
    i'm always looking into new ways to lower my sperm count
    thanks Goz.
  10. See this just shows how impractical and out of touch most scientists are, instead of breading fish and chickens they should be breading fish and cows!

    That way chefs could do 'reef and beef' (or surf and turf if you prefer) dishes in one easy step :LOL:
