Research on postmen's testicle warmth wins Ig Nobel
Seagull rips off man's testicle as he sunbathes naked
Research measuring if there is a difference in temperature between the left and right testicles is one of the winners of this year's spoof Nobel prizes. Fertility experts Roger Mieusset and Bourras Bengoudifa measured the temperature of French postmen's testicles, both naked and clothed. In their research "Thermal Asymmetry of the Human Scrotum" published in the journal Human Reproduction , the researchers explained their experiment involved measuring scrotal temperatures with probes every two minutes. They asked 11 postal workers to stand for 90 minutes while they measured the temperature of their scrotums.

A scrotal ultrasound is a safe and painless test that uses sound waves to make images of the scrotum the pouch of skin at the base of the penis that contains the testicles. During the examination, an ultrasound machine sends sound waves into the scrotum and images are recorded on a computer. The black-and-white images show the internal structures of the scrotum, such as the testicles, the epididymis the tube that collects sperm made by a testicle , and the spermatic cord the tube that connects a testicle to the inside of the body. Doctors order a scrotal ultrasound when they're concerned about symptoms such as scrotal pain or swelling.
August 20, pm Updated November 3, am. Only 12 percent of Americans sleep naked, according to a recent poll from the National Sleep Foundation. Here are five great reasons to let it all hang out tonight. Christopher Winter, M. Your body temperature declines as you doze and climbs before you wake up, but clothing can interfere with this natural fluctuation, Winter says.
