Why Do Men Today Have So Little Testosterone & What Can You Do About It? Here's The Truth About These “Silent Testosterone Slayers”…
By now, you may have heard about this statistic floating around on the internet:
Men's testosterone levels are falling by about 1% each year.
And younger men have significantly less testosterone than their fathers did at that age.
Maybe you've even felt the effects of low testosterone yourself (or suspect you may have low-T).
And unfortunately, experts and scientists are blaming just about everything for men's falling testosterone levels.
So it's hard to know what you can actually do about it!
That's what I want to talk about today.
I'll be picking apart a recent video by the controversial YouTuber “Blonde in the Belly of the Beast,” who suggests some interesting scientific causes of lower testosterone in men.
In her video, she lists 10 surprising causes, along with a solution that I'll address near the end as well.
So let's get started!
What REALLY Causes Low Testosterone?
Experts have blamed all sorts of things for men's falling testosterone levels… but in her video, here's what “Blonde in the Belly of the Beast” blames for the growing “soy boy” phenomenon:
1) Normalized gender roles…
2) ADHD medications…
3) Less active play time…
4) The school system (many schools don't even recognize biological gender)…
5) Technology, and the fact that we live more sedentary lifestyles as a result of new technological developments…
6) Soy, AKA “environmental estrogen”…
7) Modern family units, and the fact that many parents repress the “chase & conquer” aspect of seduction…
8) More mothers are encouraging their sons to attract strong women instead of being strong themselves…
9) Not enough male teachers and role models in schools…
10) Growing obesity rates…
Let's Unpack Each Cause, One By One…
First, she argues that normalized gender roles have caused women to produce more testosterone, and men to produce more estrogen.
There is some data to back this up–but more on this later.
ADHD medications are also thought to contribute to lower testosterone levels in men. Especially when young boys take these medications, some experts believe that it changes the brain chemistry in such a way as to lower testosterone.
Same goes for less play time in school. When little boys aren't allowed to “rough house” and run around at recess, some experts think it fosters a more complacent mindset and lifestyle, which can lead to more effeminate behavior down the line.
It Doesn't End There…
Which bleeds well into the fourth cause–the school system.
A lot of schools today are so PC about gender that they don't even want to recognize the difference between little boys and little girls.
Of course, it's important to be inclusive–but it's also important to recognize that there are differences.
Does this really lead to lower testosterone levels?
It's tough to say, but it likely doesn't help them.
Technology has also played a role in the falling testosterone levels of younger men today, according to some experts.
Because so many men are less active than their fathers' and grandfathers' generations, it is believed that their bodies don't need as much testosterone anymore. And so millennial men simply aren't producing the same amount of testosterone as older generations.
You've probably heard a lot about soy, otherwise known as “environmental estrogen,” so I won't spend too much time on that… but the short story is, soy contains estrogen, and when you add estrogen to your diet it can suppress testosterone production.
I'll tackle the next three causes–modern family units, the mother/son dilemma, and missing male role models–in one go:
In an effort to be as egalitarian as possible, a lot of mothers are encouraging their sons NOT to chase after women, or “seduce” them.
And as a result, a lot of guys don't feel the same adrenaline rush that comes with the game. And no adrenaline rush means–you guessed it–less testosterone.
To add insult to injury, many mothers are also encouraging their sons to attract strong women, and their daughters to attract weak men.
Do you see why this can be a vicious cycle?
If a little boy grows up with no excitement about attracting women… believing that he should seek out a strong, independent woman (his “equal”)… and is surrounded by female teachers, a single mother, and no male figure to show him what real masculinity means…
Then guess what?
He's probably going to end up in a relationship with normalized gender roles, and send his testosterone levels in a downward spiral that may be near-impossible to recover from.
And finally, let's talk about obesity.
Obesity is bad for a whole bunch of reasons, so it probably won't come as much of a surprise to hear it's bad for your testosterone levels too.
Basically, obesity causes your hormones to get completely out of whack. It's still such a new phenomenon that our brain chemistry hasn't quite adapted to how the body responds to a diet made mostly of fattening junk food.
And part of this hormonal response is a decrease in testosterone production (experts believe that this is a result of insulin-resistance-related changes, mostly).
Here’s Why Low T-Levels Are So Bad For Your Sex Life…
By now, you're probably ready for some good news.
We're almost there! But first, more bad news:
Lower testosterone levels also have an impact on your sex life… and it's not a good one.
Not only can lower testosterone decrease libido and drive–it can also make it more difficult to get and maintain an erection.
So what can you do about it?
Well, Blonde in the Belly of the Beast suggests there's only one solution:
Returning to a traditional era of masculine, dominating men and submissive women.
And to be quite honest, that's total B.S.
When she suggests this as the only solution, she's only addressing one real root cause of low T-levels–normalized gender roles.
Fixing normalized gender roles will not solve every other cause of low-T on that list.
And it definitely won't solve any of the bedroom problems that low testosterone can cause.
Instead, if you want to give yourself a “boost” in the bedroom… regardless of what your testosterone is like right now…
… you have to go straight to the source, and do something that's been scientifically proven to work.
Here's what I mean:
This “Secret Shortcut” Boosts Your Boners & Bedroom Performance (Even If Your Testosterone Is Near-Zero Right Now)…
One major sign you might have low testosterone?
But if this sounds familiar don’t worry…

It’s by eating this combination of 5 bloodflow-boosting foods.
This 5-food combo personally saved the sex life of one 41-year-old Gotham Club Reader…
He was desperate to fix his “dead d*ck”...
… so for almost 2 years, he tried every all-natural solution he could get his hands on…
… supplements, exercises, juices… even crazy stuff like horny goat weed and ashwagandha…
… and found that nothing boosted his boners, libido, and gave him a raging bull sex drive quite like this 5-food formula:
P.S. The best part is, most guys see results in 2 weeks or less, so it works REALLY fast.
