Scrotal hyperthermia is used to describe the heat-related effects of a laptop on men’s balls. Basically consistently using your laptop on your lap will fry your balls.

Dr Yefim Sheynkin, a urologist at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, says no studies have actually tested how laptops affect men’s fertility. But earlier research has revealed that warming the scrotum more than one degree Celsius (1.8 degrees Fahrenheit) is enough to damage sperm.
