Overview

The Virility Factor is a book of crucial importance to every male who is curious or concerned about the quality of manhood. And it is especially vital to all who want to understand about the size of their genitals, their ability to build muscle, bone, and body hair, the tone of their voice, capacity to handle stress and fatigue, and ability to respond sexually.

Throughout his life a man's "manliness," physically and psychologically, is almost exclusively dictated by the quantity of a magical substance in his body, the hormone called testosterone. Here is the first up-to-date book for the layman on this amazing male sex hormone.

A noted endocrinologist, Dr. Herbert Kupperman, has written an introduction endorsing the book's accuracy. What the reader will learn is not only what testosterone does, but how taking testosterone can be a safe therapy that enhances the middleaged and older male's sex life. There is also useful advice on the steps any man can take to help his testicles produce more testosterone through diet and other life-style changes.

A key subject The Virility Factor confronts is testosterone's relationship to prostate cancer. Author Robert Bahr, the noted medical writer, shows that the hormone does not cause cancer, while testosterone can speed the growth of an already developed cancer, its deficiency may be a factor in the prostate malignancy of older men. Nor does testosterone therapy cause glandular atrophy, a widespread misconception. A controversial section of the book presents evidence that an inadequate testosterone level during fetal development is one cause of homosexuality.

Editorial Reviews

Publisher's Weekly
Bahr's informed and lucid book is a boon to the man who is troubled by the most common 'masculine' problem... well organized discussions of what testosterone is, how its normal supply activates a man's sexual activity and how a man's sexual drive, general health, appearance and psychology suffer when testosterone levels for whatever reason (stress is one) fall below the norm. Bahr's authoritative handling of the subject makes it a good bet for solid sales.
Penthouse Forum
Even as he lucidly unveils the complexities of testosterone, Bahr slips in interesting sidelines, such as information about men's annual sex cycle, and exact instructions on how to measure your penis. A good book.
