What's Wrong With This Porsche?

whats wrong with this porsche

Thanks to Dr. Gad Saad and his research associate John Vongas (a former grad student of the good Doctor), we can now argue the physiological benefits of driving a Porsche. According to an article in Psychology Today (tomorrow the world), Saad cites several evolutionists who claim expectant fathers’ T levels (that’s Testosterone to you and me) decrease immediately after the birth of their child. This reduced T level is “nature’s way of freeing the expectant father from the incessant pursuit of sex, and refocuses his energy on his newborn child.” Not in a hurry to see that T level dip? Don’t want to be free of your sexual drive? Saad suggest the remedy is as simple as taking a Porsche for a quick spin through a heavily populated area. More technically, “Put a man in a high status car, and his hormonal response will correspond to a social win (T levels go up subsequent to a competitive win). Place him in a ‘beta’ car, and his tail will be between his legs (T levels go down subsequent to a competitive loss). Furthermore, the changes in testosterone levels should be more pronounced as a function of whether the drive takes place in a public or private setting.” Finally, the mid-life crisis automotive purchase is explained through medical science. ‘Bout time.

    This is hilarious, I happen to be friends with John Vongas and have actually read the thesis that this study is based upon. Congratulations John!

    Finally, the mid-life crisis automotive purchase is explained through medical science. ‘Bout time. As well as the "small penis/expensive car" explanation...

    So does this mean that driving a mini-van or a SUV means that you need to be getting testosterone supplements?
