For a Chinese hospital has come up with the ultimate measure of manliness by launching a contest to find its nation's strongest sperm.
And the proud winner will be given the, erm, enviable sobriquet of Sperm King, as well as walking away with a £2,000 cash prize.
Renai Hospital of Guangzhou, capital of southern China's Guangdong Province has launched the oddball challenge to find candidates over 18 years old to – ahem - come to the hospital to 'extract' their sperm.
The donation will then be numbered and sealed and judged on whose sperm is the strongest and most active.
Of course, there can only be one Sperm King, but runners-up Sperm Princes will receive iPhones and iPads.
Want to get your sperm in shape? Follow these tips from AskMen.
1. Stop smoking
If you smoke, quit now. If it's not bad enough that you already have bad breath and can't taste anything, smoking also affects your sperm count. Not only do you have significantly less sperm than non-smoking men (22%), your little boys are also slower and smaller.
2. Chill out
The reason your testicles hang from your body and don't reside inside it like a woman's ovaries, is because they need to be a few degrees cooler than the rest of your body. So wearing tight underwear or tight pants that keeps them pressed up against your 98.6° body is not a good idea. As well, sleep naked if you can, to ensure coolness.
3. Eat to win
Your diet affects your sperm production big time. A diet that's low in fat, and high in protein, vegetables, and whole grains is good for your health but also good for your sperm.
4. Have less sex and lay off the self-love
The more times you ejaculate, the less dense your semen will be. If you have sex or masturbate every day then chances are that your sperm count and semen density will not be up to par.
5. Drink less
Alcohol affects your liver function, which, in turn, causes a dramatic rise in oestrogen levels which will interfere with sperm production because oestrogen, not testosterone, will accumulate in your body. Even two drinks a day will have long-term effects on sperm production.
6. Try supplements
Certain natural supplements promise to increase sperm production. L-carnitine, found in red meat and milk, is a natural amino acid, and increases sperm production and speed. Of course, it can also be taken as a supplement. Folic acid, when combined with zinc, increases the amount of sperm produced. L-arginine (found in nuts, sesame seeds, eggs, and meat) is also highly regarded as a sperm enhancer.
So now you know. Fancy your chances? Go on, be brave. Or as the Americans would say: show some spunk!
