Science Behind Testosterone & Attraction Pheromones

Does Testosterone Actually Effect A Man’s Attraction Level?

Women are attracted to confidence and comfort. Looks come second. However women are also physically attracted to men with more testosterone running through their bodies. It’s a scientific fact.

The average testosterone level of a man around the age of 32 in 2017 is about 400.  30 years ago it was about 700. An athlete in great shape with a healthy testosterone level is around 900 and the highest natural recorded testosterone level is about 1200.

In an article by the American Psychological Association, they show how hormones associated with a women’s menstrual cycle appear to drive sexual attraction more than we know.  A testosterone treatment plan for women involves a mix of estrogen and testosterone which is actually even more affective than it it is for men. Also, did you know that….

Testosterone levels also tend to drop when a man enters a committed relationship and has children, says Gangestad. “Probably the most effective way, short of castration, for men to reduce testosterone levels is to have a child,” he says.

Here is a list showing you who is most likely to have a lower testosterone level…

  • Single Men With No Kids – Highest testosterone level
  • Committed Relationship – Second highest testosterone level
  • Married With Kids – Lowest testosterone level

Our testosterone these days is greatly reduced from what it was 30 years ago. Processed food, soda, alcohol and stress have negatively affected our genes and our life.

I Knew At The First Kiss

There is literally a chemical reaction that goes on in the saliva exchange between a man and a woman when they kiss. In an article by Robin Lloyd at Live Science, it mentions that kissing can release chemicals linked with social binding and sexual desire.

One study found that 66 percent of women and 59 percent of men say that the quality of the first kiss can kill a relationship…

Research Study At Aberdeen University On The Science of Attraction & Testosterone

Researchers at Aberdeen University Face Research Laboratory carried out the first study into the role testosterone plays in attraction between the sexes.

During the study, men and women completed four test sessions each conducted a week apart. In each session, volunteers provided a saliva sample which was used to measure testosterone levels

The science of attraction is very interesting. Researchers found that when asked to choose between different types of faces in each session, the subjects’ preferences changed depending on their testosterone level.

Dr. Ben Jones, a psychology lecturer at the university, said: “Since masculine men and feminine women are thought to produce the healthiest children and sex drive is higher when testosterone levels are also high, these findings suggest that men and women in hormonal states where their interest in sex is highest show stronger attraction to high-quality – or healthy – mates.”

Fellow researcher Dr. Lisa Welling said: “We tend to think that attraction is relatively stable over time.

“However, our research shows that attraction is affected by fluctuations in testosterone levels.”
