    Finally. Good news for the uglies.

    Sure, he looks good. But how about his sperm?

    That might not be such a ridiculous-sounding question, now that a new study has identified a link between men's facial attractiveness and the quality of their semen--with handsome, masculine-looking guys having slightly lower-quality semen than other men.

    "To [the] best of our knowledge, this is the first demonstration of the phenomenon," study co-author Dr. Jukka Kekalainen, adjunct lecturer in the Centre for Evolutionary Biology at the University of Australia in Crawley, told The Huffington Post in an email.

    The researchers have no readyexplanation for their finding, although previous research has shown that high testosterone levels can harm sperm production, the New York Daily News reported. And the finding seems to be at odds with the so-called phenotype-linked fertility hypothesis, which holds that females prefer handsome males because their offspring may enjoy hereditary benefits, such as better health and higher intelligence.

    so it's not the giz from studs, but the eggs from medicore cows that are bad?

    I trust your observation more than Dr. Kekalainen's study. Something tells me the good doctor is not a good looking man.

    So good looking men can actually fuck around and have a lower chance of accidentally knocking up a chick. Yeah, it sucks to be a good looking guy.

    Who cares? The handsome guy gets many more chances at impregnating a woman than the no so handsome fellow. That slightly lower count is more than made up for by frequency
