Cock Talk: Rising Infertility and the Spermpocalypse

Episode 75

A recent study was published showing that sperm counts in the US (and a number of other countries) have fallen by more than 50% over the past four decades. OMG! WTF people? Are we headed towards a real life version of The Handmaid’s Tale?

Humans have developed so many mindblowing inventions--gasoline, plastic, sex toys, anti-depressants, nail polish that stays on forever and on and on. Unfortunately, those brilliant inventions have also created mindblowing problems for humanity. Chemicals within these magnificent creations, like the phthalates and BPA in plastic, are called endocrine disruptors. Endocrine disruptors mimic estrogen in the bloodstream. Which means...stay with us here..if you're a man with a lots of these phthalates in your body, that come from plastic, you'll produce less testosterone and fewer sperm. And if you’re a mommy growing a baby boy (like Nurse Katie) and there are lots of phthalates in the bloodstream, then the boy could turn out less male...meaning a smaller penis, smaller testicles, less testosterone, and hence less sperm.

To discuss Spermageddon and the future of humanity, we’ve brought into the studio today some of the greatest men on Earth: Lindsey’s dad (of course), Malachi, Jeremy, Ethan, and the two and only—Nick & Pierre!
