Hot baths affect male fertility

Scientists advise men who are looking forward to have a baby to avoid long hot baths. From Daily Mail:
Men used to spending half an hour or more in a bath or jacuzzi who gave up for three months were found to increase sperm production almost fivefold, according to research published in the journal of the Brazilian Society of Urology.

Sperm needs cool surroundings to develop best, which is why the testicles are outside the body.

Because of this, men who want to father a child are already advised not to wear tight clothing or underwear which causes too much heat to build up.

In a pilot study involving men with fertility problems, half of those who refrained from baths saw their sperm count rise by an average of 491 per cent.

So if I want to have sex without condoms, I should stay in a hot bath for long before sex right so that I will not impregnate my partner.
