When Benediktová showed the data to her Ph.D. supervisor, he noticed an intriguing feature about the scouting runs.

After that dash, it would reset its direction and start to head back to its owner.

An important additional element of this study looked at relationship quality, hypothesizing that higher levels of testosterone predict worse relationship outcomes, a finding which past studies have supported.

Interestingly, more frequent sex in females appeared to actually lower testosterone in females, which the authors suggest may reflect that this sex occurs within a relationship and that lower testosterone levels improve relationship quality. … [Read more...] about No, Abstinence Won’t Increase Your Testosterone
