 Global Warming can Ruin Your Sex Lives, People Have Less Sex on Hot Days

It's time that we take global warming seriously, as it is probably impacting our life in more ways than we can imagine. A new study has suggested that as the temperatures increase, people may feel less inclined to have sex.

The report from the National Bureau of Economic Research revealed that 'coital frequency' of people could diminish with rising temperatures. The research revealed that nine months after a particularly hot day, the birth rate tails off significantly, coming in 0.7% lower than it would after a cooler day. This indicates that rising temperatures either reduces fertility, decrease appetite for intercourse or, quite possibly, both.



The researchers said, "Extreme heat leads to a sizeable fall in births. Temperature extremes could affect coital frequency. It could affect hormone levels and sex drives. Alternatively, high temperatures may adversely affect reproductive health or semen quality on the male side, or ovulation on the female side."

Tulane University's report author Alan Barreca said, "The decline in birth rates is a very serious issue for countries, like the United States and the UK, which have below-replacement birth rates. This will put a lot of strain on social insurance programs, like social security, because it will create large imbalances in the make-up of the population."
