How science regulates our sexual behavior

June 30, 2009

As someone who’s never tried to conceived a child under pressure, I have to roll my eyes at this kind of thing, from Reuters:

Having sex every day improves the quality of men’s sperm and is recommended for couples trying to conceive, according to new research.

Until now doctors have debated whether or not men should refrain from sex for a few days before attempting to conceive with their partner to improve the chance of pregnancy.

But a new study by Dr David Greening of Sydney IVF, an Australian center for infertility and in vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment, suggests abstinence is not the right approach.

Plug away, friends.
