Now I’m a wiz on jizz!

Sperm, everybody knows that millions of them are released everytime a man gets that feelin’ and needs sexual healin’, gets bored and has a couple of minutes to kill, or just gets a little overexcited like the guys in this music video.

Everybody knows that nothing is hotter than spouting figures and numbers when you’re getting down, so here are some of the awesome-cool facts about jizz.

1. It takes between 64 to 76 days, so like 10 weeks, for a spermocyte to mature into a proper sperm. That’s a long time, right? Those little cells plan way further ahead than most men.

2. Every day a person (hopefully a man, otherwise see your doctor) produces up to 150 MILLION sperm, and a full dose is made up of between 200 – 500 MILLION sperm. Sounds like overkill to me.

4. It takes between 5 minutes to an hour for sperm to traverse the female form and reach the egg. God knows why there is such a big time difference, maybe some eggs are easier than others (if you know what I mean)

5. Sperm can live for up to five days in healthy cervical fluid – longer than many relationships.

6. People used to believe in preformation, the idea that there was a little human inside sperm called a homunculus which grew in women like an acorn. Check out a picture!

Anyone got any other sex, sperm or semen science to share?
