Every morning I watch The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report. To be honest, it took me a while to enjoy The Colbert Report. I thought he was a little over the top compared to Jon, but now that’s why I love him.
So last night he was talking about the product Andro-gel. Apparently it’s a testosterone gel that men can apply to themselves to help increase their testosterone level. Now, after it’s applied, they cannot touch a woman. The “medicine” is so potent that just having it on the sink after applying, and having your children or wife touch it, can cause their testosterone levels to rise. It can also cause prostate cancer and lower sperm count. So, yea.
Then, Colbert started talking about a nasal spray for women. It’s actually a gel that women shoot up into their nose. It’s to help women increase their sex drive in order to have better or have an orgasm at all. The gel is testosterone that women shoot directly into their brains. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not judging a women for wanting an orgasm. I know that some find it impossible to have one and that makes me sad for them, but there has to be a better way to fix these problems. Women taking extra testosterone, and men taking extra testosterone all seem to be factors in increasing societies infertility levels. If you listen to the voice over telling you all of the terrible things these medicines can cause it’s amazing that someone would say “yea, worth it!”. Look at us already… 1 out of 8 couples cannot conceive on their own. What is all this testosterone flying around going to do for us? Science, I beg of you, try a little harder and don’t just take the easy way out on this. The future generations rely on you to help and not hinder the fertility levels. Thanks!
So if you have a few minutes to watch, take a look and see what I’m talking about from the mouth of the amusing Colbert. 🙂
Oh, and I’m not trying to say that trying to help increase sex drive is bad, I’m trying to say that there needs to be a safer way to do it that won’t lower sperm count or cause women to take extra testosterone. Coming straight from a women with too much male hormone (hello!) I will say that I do have a stronger sex drive than any woman I know, but I also cannot conceive on my own. I’d take a few less shags in my life if it meant I could conceive like the majority of the population. You know?

I am with you 1000%…I would gladly give up some testosterone to not have any fertility issues!!!
Wow, it’s scary that all these potentially harmful hormones are so available. I wonder how regulated they are?
Because of my struggles with acne, I’m assuming that I have slightly higher testosterone levels than the average woman, but sadly, I don’t have the awesomely high sex drive to match, so you’re lucky that way! I bet your husband is very grateful. 🙂
I love The Daily Show and Colbert Report, too. I got to see a live Daily Show taping while visiting my sister in NYC! It was fun, and you could tell that Jon Stewart is a really nice guy, just like he appears to be on TV.
I am SO JEALOUS!!! I think Jon Stewart seems like an amazing person! Just the way he is able to think clearly about issues instead of being like a typical politician is fantastic. No wonder so many people want him to run for president. I don’t though, I think it would ruin him. 🙂
Yes, my husband is grateful for that. haha My friends think it’s insane though. Lucky for them, they don’t have a hormone imbalance though. So I think I’ll just take the good with the bad. 🙂
Lol, you deserve any benefits you can get! And I agree that a political career would ruin Jon Stewart. He would be forced to follow the money, deal with lobbyists, and make icky compromises with members of Congress… He’s doing so much good right now by putting the spin of reason on current events! But, yeah, if he ran, I’d definitely vote for him.
I hope you get to see Jon Stewart one day! 🙂
