Natural Sex Steroid Makes Men Take Risks

When males see attractive women their bodies produce sex steroids such as testosterone, which make them more likely to indulge in ‘physical and risky behaviour’, according to psychologists at the University of Queensland in Australia.

Lead researcher Professor Bill von Hippel believes this is why some men are accident prone around the opposite sex.

He said: ‘Our results suggest that displays of physical risk-taking might best be understood as hormonally-fuelled advertisements of health and vigour aimed at potential mates, and signals of strength, fitness, and daring intended to intimidate potential rivals.’
