    Read this story yesterday and had to share:

    Sweden faces sperm deficit as pandemic keeps donors away from clinics | Reuters

    Evidently Sweden is running out of sperm at their sperm banks, making it more difficult for women to be artificially inseminated. The Nordic countries have the highest artificial insemination rates in the world (who knew?) so this is a particularly acute issue right now.

    I believe we have some male members from that part of the world...get going guys! :p:D

    Well, they could always go back to doing it the old-fashioned way. I thought Swedes were the world's foremost experts on sex. What gives?

    Our Tory MPs are capable of helping out.

    Are you apologising or is there something frightening you?

    Would they accept Tory sperm, though? :p

    As it is, Swedish men tend to have quite low rates of sperm because of their overall low testosterone levels, believed to be largely due to reduced sunlight versus most other countries. Matter of fact, women tend to be more sexually assertive there than men, and boys tend to mature more slowly.

    I can relate to this because, even though I'm only 1/4 Swedish, many of my genetic characteristics reflect the above, including my general appearance. However, at my age of 76, I look more like a cross between a Swede and a Shar Pei.

    Hmmmm... you're probably right...perhaps it could be donated anonymously? Or perhaps diluted down with lots of wholesome sperm?

    Apologising. I have no sperm to spare at my age.

    No phobias that I’m aware of.

    Ya, I live in the northern U.S., and when I went to Israel for the 1st time in 1991, we were told that Israel girls tend to mature more quickly because of their extra time being in the more intense sun, thus it is all too easy to overestimate their age.

    A significant drop in the number of humans on the planet would be a very good thing, overall.

    There was an OP along these lines recently. I doubt Western men will be completely devoid of sperm after 2045; my bet is that their sperm count will level off somewhere along the way.

    Actually, global population growth rates have been declining for quite a while now.

    Women are led to believe that they're better off alone. This means that men avoid having kids with women who won't stay anyway. Then as women get older their natural urge to be a mother kicks in so they turn to artificial insemination. Sweden is really at the forefront of feminism. But unfortunately if college kids are any indication ... the USA will soon surpass them in this.
    I must disagree. I can't imagine the land of Vikings having problems in this regard a thousand years ago. I think this is happening due to chemicals in food, water, vaccines etc. Not to mention soy as food. The agenda is to reduce sperm counts and testosterone for the sake of population control. Not a conspiracy theory; more like conspiracy fact.
