Perhaps you've been sitting for too long with a hot laptop on your
lap? :-) The testicles are outside the body so they can be kept
cooler. The standard Zazen position does not affect their temperature
to any appreciable degree because the legs are open.

There is lots of evidence that the higher the temperature of your
testicles throughout the day, the lower your sperm count. Therefore,
it stands to reason that men who sit in meditation for hours a day
have a much lower sperm count.

If you like to meditate and also enjoy sex, the only solution may be
to meditate in the nude with a fan aimed at their scrotum. Or you can
put a bag of ice under your balls.
