Men Sweat Testosterone During Sex

Hormones play a big role in our sex lives. Treatments to replace hormones are commonplace after someone’s overies or testicals had been removed - else they have no sex drive. And during sex we also apply hormones. Studies have shown that men excrete testosterone in their sweat, particularly during sex, making them even more attractive to their sexual partners. Pheromones, tiny molecules we pick up through smell, might also play a role. Though still very controversial - medical science is undecided if humans actually use pheromones - it is believed to sync the menstrual cycles of women who cohabitate.
