Valley girl
[lily of the valley]
(Reuters) - Human sperm become excited when exposed to the scent of lily of the valley, doubling their speed and homing in on the aroma, a German scientist said on Wednesday.

"This is the first time sperm has been shown to respond to smell," Hatt, who said the findings came after three years of study, told Reuters. "The application of the substances in a salve to the vaginal area could raise the chance of conceiving."

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

Heh...there are some who could benefit greatly from having it smell like lillies, whether they were trying to conceive or not. :)

Any report on what sperm do when they encounter the smell of tuna?

I have a feeling Crabtree and Evelyn will be running out of their lotion and they won't know why.

Not that I'd know from personal experience or anything *cough, yeah right, cough* -- but Crabtree & Evelyn just happens to have a lot of their lily of the valley products on half-off right now.

Exactly HOW do you get a job testing which smells excite sperm??

and....AND...if sperm can be "excited"...doesn't that mean they're alive? So if you "waste sperm" aren't you MURDERING a living thing??? Hmmm??

Ok, yeah, I'll go back to being brain dead now.

Damn...under that waste theory, I'm easily the world's most prolific mass murderer. I guess better cut back on my "self-help" program. :)
