    I wonder, does having an orgasm from playing with myself and thinking about that guy have a similar effect?

    Probably explains why older men commit more and faster... maybe it’s because their testosterone is lower 🤔

    so what is exactly determine what make us feel love or attraction for specific person and not for anyone in general. I mean why from 10 person I’m attracted to only one person? what is the reasons behind our choices?

    saying your brain falls in love makes no fkin sense, you are the brain, the body is just a vehicle for us to move around, otherwise we would've still be swiming like spermatozoids

    9:57 that's not a reliable source for those test results fo extrapolate. I'm sure men willing to enlist in the Air Force had a predisposition to high testosterone in the first place (as in the army). That's a segmented population, you cannot extrapolate that.
    Besides, the training they do itself increases testosterone.
