How porn addiction can affect your sex life Hugh Hefner might have cornered the market for seventies chic, but some of things regarded as indispensable to the lifestyle he epitomised could keep you childless.
Medallions, tight trousers, a waterbed and a spliff the size of a lifeboat: And yes, unless you had the misfortune to rely on a car built in that era, the seventies have a certain appeal. The whole pre-Aids, pre-global warming, pre-boyband thing had a kind of clueless freshness about it. Hedonism and abundant free time A cornerstone of that nostalgia was the hedonism with which rich guys approached their abundant free time: The more your pad looked like the set for a porn movie , the better.
You also needed a waterbed upstairs, or preferably out by the pool. That lifestyle messed up a lot of people physically and emotionally. Many proponents of the whole free-love ethos of the sixties have noted that it was essentially as misogynistic as the Victorian era of which it professed to be the antithesis: No quickie in the back of the tour bus? The good news is that the body begins recovering from it as soon as you stop.
Oysters, long regarded as an aphrodisiac, may contain high levels of mercury and are best avoided. Many people maintain that sex with marijuana is the best sex ever.
A number of other aspects of modern life have been identified as being bad for baby-making: In the early s, researchers at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark pooled data from many worldwide studies of sperm counts and fertility. They found that the increased use of pesticide could be linked to a global decline in semen quality, the increase in testicular cancer rates.
In Denmark, the use of pesticides has been linked to a percent increase in the disease, which has been linked to the exposure of pregnant mothers to pesticides. So it may be an idea to let the insects be, or to use flypaper instead of a huge tin of bug spray. Waterbeds have a long history: By then they were being made out of vinyl, not goats. They waterbeds, not goats could be found in the honeymoon suites of many hotels, as well as aboard the private jets of oil magnates.
Too much heat is bad for sperm. The solution to keep keeping your baby-making solution cool and healthy? Easy on the tight pants, hot-water bottles and electric blankets. The study, published in the journal Fertility and Sterility, indicates that the drug could soon be used to aid men with poor sperm quality become dads.
