Except that everyone here has a laptop.

Teenagers and young men should keep their laptops off their laps because they could damage fertility, an expert said on Thursday.
Laptops, which reach high internal operating temperatures, can heat up the scrotum which could affect the quality and quantity of menís sperm.
"The increase in scrotal temperature is significant enough to cause changes in sperm parameters," said Dr Yefim Sheynkin, an associate professor of urology at the State University of New York at Stony Brook.

And yet, I can tell you from experience that this is not a very reliable method of birth control. Those three kids of ours came pretty quick. For most youngish people, getting pregnant is easier than falling off a log.
