The Myths And Misconceptions About Testosterone

By Johnathan P Cumberwell

Did you know that in 1889, a a French-Mauritian physiologist crushed dog testicles and then injected the resulting juice into himself?

And then reported impressive health benefits?

This was probably the first ever testosterone therapy done.

Btw, the effects he felt were probably just placebo effects (imaginary).

But this nonetheless started a frenzy and all of a sudden there were thousands of ‘scientists’ shooting testicle cocktails.

Fast forward to today, and we have several forms of testosterone therapy, including injections.

But is testosterone the fountain of youth? And can it help you function sexually like you did at your peak?

Maybe. Maybe not.

Let’s get one thing clear:

Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone which underlies and governs anything sexual going on in your body. With low testosterone, you will find it more difficult to get erections, function sexually and have a strong sex drive.

However, there are still many misconceptions about testosterone.

Let’s take a look at some of these..

It’s not only men who produce testosterone. So do women. They just have about 10% of the testosterone that males have.

Testosterone declines as you get older. This is true for the most part. However, there are actions you can take to naturally increase your testosterone production even as you age.

Testosterone makes men sexually aggressive. This is controversial. High testosterone will normally increase a man’s sex drive. However that does not necessarily mean he will be sexually aggressive or lose sight of moral safe conduct.

Testosterone levels in men have been falling significantly during the last few decades. True. Go here to learn more.

Does testosterone therapy help you get your youth back? And does it cure erectile dysfunction? A systematic review of 156 eligible randomised controlled trials from 2016, found testosterone to be “ineffective” when it came to treating erectile dysfunction and “inconsistent” when it came to libido. Most studies found “no beneficial effect” on mood, personality or cognition.

But here is one interesting takeaway: Receiving positive feedback (and presumably having positive social relations with other people) is able to significantly increase your testosterone levels.
