Do mobile phones affect rabbit sex?

Rabbit without mobile phoneThere's been plenty of talk about the health effects of mobile phones on people, although much of the research has seemed inconclusive. Now a group of researchers in Japan has investigated whether mobiles have any effect on the sexual behaviour of rabbits.

The use of rabbits, perhaps obviously, avoided the complications of such a study using people.

Six male rabbits had switched-on phones placed near their genitals, six had switched-off phones and another six had no phones at all. Female rabbits were then introduced. After twelve weeks of research, the researchers noted that the rabbits with switched-on phones "got sexually exhausted earlier". However, the research group is too small to offer any definitive conclusions.
