A 19-year-old male asked:

My cat sat in my lap, he was warm...can that affect my testicles, in terms of testosterone production or sperm count?

No: The testicles will do what the testicles will do, whether or not there is a cat in the lap. Likewise, the cat will do what the cat will do, regardless of the presence or absence of testicles. Testicles and cats don't have a noticeable effect on one another.
