hormones and your Porsche

Recommended Posts

excerpt from 'the truth about cars'

"To test some of his theories, Saad and a graduate student of his at the time, Jon Vongas, designed an experiment where they had men driving either an expensive Porsche or beat-up Toyota station wagon in both Montreal’s crowded downtown and on a relatively empty highway and then measured their testosterone levels after each drive. Their prediction, that T levels would go up when driving an expensive car in a crowded area because of sexual signalling, but not elsewhere, turned out to be wrong. In fact, driving a Porsche raised male hormone levels in men significantly in either environment."

go figure eh?
