    Hi all. This is a serious question:
    I was watching this bad science show which tried methods to increase a man’s testosterone levels naturally (they called this guy a wimp). Some tests included 1.make the man do boxing, etc.
    What further test I wonder is would subjecting the man to sexually arousing material e.g. pornography- would that also boost his testosterone levels temporarily?

    Thanks

    It’s funny you should ask that I’ve often wondered the same thing. I’ve heard stories which state that David Beckham bones ol’posh before each game and some doctors say that this releases test and actually increases performance.

    In saying that I find that if I have a mind blowing session in the sack then yes I feel it increases test levels for I feel empowered and strong, like a man you could say. But on the other hand if I consider my performance shithouse then I find the exact opposite occurs and I feel weaker and am likely to not do as well. Although this doesn’t happen often! 😆

    So go figure?

    It would explain Beckhams average performance at the world cup 😆

    Thanks for the input Kinmassive- I reckon one of the best sources of evidence for science is personal experience.
    U reminded me something that a friend told me which sounds similar to what u said- a friend who used to be a competitive swimmer said that some competitive swimmers had sex on the nights before a swimming race to increase performance- but this is what I am wondering-

    Is the increase in performance due to increased testosterone, or due to something else like increased self esteem, other hormones like, I dunno, endorphins that make you feel happy/positive? and is it this that makes you perform better at the gym?
    Remember that you perform better at the gym if you are feeling positive (and not depressed) which is not due to testosterone.

    Anyway, if anyone comes up with additional info to add to this thread, it’s well appreciated.
