Abstract:

Background: Infidelity in romantic relationships is a common, but severe issue often causing breakup and severe psychological impairment. Higher levels of testosterone are related to mating-behavior, sexual desire, and infidelity in men with sexual dysfunctions. Previous studies, have insufficiently addressed the potential role of testosterone in infidelity in healthy men.

Methods: A sample of 224 middle-aged self-reporting healthy men being currently in a relationship completed questionnaires on relationship characteristics, infidelity, and provided overnight-fasting saliva samples for testosterone quantification.

Results: In the sample, 37.5% men answered having been unfaithful in the current relationship, while 29% were identified as fulfilling criteria for a sexual dysfunction. Adjusting for covariates, a significant positive association for the frequency of unfaithful behavior and testosterone levels emerged. Subsample analysis indicates a positive association between testosterone and infidelity only to be present in men without sexual dysfunction.

Conclusion: Unfaithful behavior in males is associated with higher testosterone levels.

Testosterone studies are purposefully poorly done with trash conclusions to continue the "men are evil" fallacy.

224 middle-aged self-reporting healthy men

Middle aged married man or woman will cheat, has nothing to do with hormones. For the exact reason, middle aged married men become limp dicks, it's not because of testosterone, it's because they are married.

overnight-fasting saliva samples for testosterone quantification.

Saliva sample lmao.

Yes, and it is well known that being in an LTR reduces men's T levels see: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25782185 That would make make men less likely to cheat, no? Lower T usually means lower libido.

Saliva sample lmao.

A major focus of testosterone analysis in saliva is in fertility research for the treatment of male hypogonadism. Testosterone measurement in saliva has been successfully used to differentiate between eugonadic and hypogonadic men, demonstrating a very high correlation with free testosterone levels in serum.

It seems to be an adequate measure, given the limitations placed on the researchers.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
