  • BACKGROUND Scrotal temperatures in men have been reported to be either similar on both sides or higher on the left than the right scrotum. [...] Key Method In Experiment I, eight men have been submitted to four successive body positions for 15 min each, first naked then clothed. Experiment II involved 11 postal employees working in a standing position for 90 min continuously. Experiment III involved 11 bus drivers and a 90 min period of continuous driving.Expand Abstract
