One of the most damaging fluids for sperm is saliva. This tends to come as a shock to many people. Saliva contains digestive enzymes which have a very damaging effect on sperm. Dr Sheryl Homa, Male specialist at the Zita West Clinic, suggests that couples should avoid oral sex around the fertile time.

Does the Catholic Church know this, I thought every sperm was sacred? How many priests have murdered their altar boy's spermies in this way?
I think you have the roles confused in that particular exchange.

A brief profile in today's Observer: Samantha Brick: 'We are all taught false modesty'
"I had no idea it was going to explode like it did," says Brick, who pitched the idea after a woman in the village she had previously counted as a friend snubbed her. "I checked online in the morning and I saw the piece had run and that it had four comments, so I thought: 'OK, fine.' Then I went to the supermarket."

My anguish at being childless at Christmas: Samantha Brick fled a nativity play in tears... the only present she's bought this month is for the child she yearns to have after years of trying

Brick is now plugging her memoir in the Mail. The extract they've chosen to publish contains the usual confessional stereotypes: the businesswoman who tries to 'have it all', and ends up with nothing; who puts on a tough-guy façade, though underneath she's fragile, insecure and neurotic; who thinks she can depend on other women, only to find out that they are as self-interested as she is. The downfall of such a bolshy but talentless woman is satisfyingly humiliating. Yet instead of curling up and hiding herself away as any proper lady would, Brick, aka "Britain's most irritating woman", insists on talking about herself, going over every detail of her humiliation, shamelessly, endlessly, in public. The 300+ comments so far are mostly a variation on "Silence this woman please."

There's predictably no attempt to address the socio-economic issues that create the space for a Brick — least of all the Mail's role. But she's not even recognised for her extraordinary success in playing the system. I thought the Mailites liked an entrepreneur.

I take it she is in on the Britain's most irritating woman stuff? (which she does extremely well)

As she's in rural France and unlikely to be recognised and gobbed on in the pub, I'm guessing she's just making a few bob as a get up your nose pantomine character like Michael Winner. Which is good news for her creditors, who now know where she lives.

she's getting an absolute kicking in the comments

I can't help but feel a bit sad about this. Dealing with IVF not being successful (and even if it is successful) must be extremely difficult, and I feel that the Mail have trivialised it with an article like this.

Brick's been thrown under a bus a bit by that headline as well.
"Even though I’d been told I had a minimal chance of conceiving via IVF..."
She was warned, though, about the chances she had of success.

Also, I don't know whether if this is the case, but she mentions how some marriages don't survive IVF. If there wasn't IVF, would they necessarily survive anyway?

Joan Collins is right. Any woman who wants to stay beautiful (like me!) needs to diet every day of her life
But, Samantha, can't you see that there might be a connection between your poor diet (and mental attitude) and your infertility?

when one friend arrived and thrust a hefty box of chocolates into my hands, I rewarded her with ice-cold contempt rather than the grateful smile she was clearly expecting.
Nice.
Pascal would not tolerate a fat wife and has told me that if I put on weight, our marriage is over. What more motivation do I need?
Pascal's a bit of a cunt, isn't he?

So no return invitation then.
