As I’ve long suspected, chickflicks suck the testosterone out of a man.
Sentimental films such as “The Bridges of Madison County” caused levels of the hormone progesterone to rise by more than 10 percent in both men and women, the team at the University of Michigan found.
Women’s testosterone levels were unchanged during and after the Clint Eastwood movie about a love affair, while men’s testosterone levels fell.
“The Godfather Part II” aroused a different sort of passion. While watching the crime and action film, men with the highest levels of testosterone had them soar by as much as 30 percent more.
