Normally, when a girl jams her hand down your pants, it would seem the interview phase of the date is then over and it’s now time to get down to Austin Powers.
However, following the results of a new study, this could just turn out to be Phase 2.5 of the application procedure.
According to this new work by Emory University, smaller gonad-size in men was positively-correlated with increased paternal involvement and nurturing.
And parental involvement by the father generally correlates with healthier, better-adjusted children.
-Either that or lead researcher Jennifer Mascaro is just a complete and total horndog.
Though the researchers Were able to see the nurture-y regions of the brain light up when men were shown photos of their kids,
they still haven’t come up with a causation.
Were the gonads always that small?
Was the testosterone-level for the men in-question always lower on-average?
What makes the larger-gonad men less nurturing?
How much worse are they?
How bad are the average effects, if such a thing is even measurable?
For armchair speculation, it’s probably just the wives nagging that shrank the size of the men’s testes, and nothing to do with aging or pheromone-hormone stuff. Seems legit.
