  1. only if u do them alot and sit in there for a long time. he just ment that that high of temp can kill a few

  2. Why doesnt this apply to you?

    Sperm production is at optimum when the testes are ~2degC below the body’s temperature. Hot baths every once a while is not a problem at all. If you are planning to have a kid (or when you plan to have one), avoid hot baths, wearing tight clothing etc.. Otherwise, knock yourself out. The occasional heat has no lasting effect (as far as I know).

  3. heat kills sperm cells… therefore you exposing your testicles to hot water will kill sperm. but its not a big deal… it’ll increase eventually if you stop.
