Scientists again prove the obvious

From the department of no-kidding:
Some men should have sex every day to maximise the chances of getting their partner pregnant, researchers say.

It is known for couples with fertility problems to abstain from sex for several days to boost sperm numbers before trying to conceive.

However, the Sydney University team, addressing the American Society for Reproductive Medicine conference, said this could mean poorer quality sperm.

One UK expert said daily sex might be better for men with damaged sperm.
So, in other words, more sex = higher chance of having a baby. Sounds like an Ig Nobel Prize nomination.

Nothing about whether wearing wetsuits will increase conception...

It's much more serious than that. The whole planet's having trouble getting pregnant — not just the human species, but whole food chains and ecosystems are gradually being affected.
