    Even castrati could get it up! They never went bald...

    Ever hear of Giovanni Battista Velluti, the last great castrato? Well he had his balls chopped off before puberty set in to maintain that childlike soprano voice, his hair also never fell out. Anyways, this guy was famous for his vast sexual escapades and he only had the minimal t produced by the adrenals in his system. I just think its intersting that t produced by the testes is not required for erection.
    Any thoughts?

    Id be interested to hear an answer on this from anyone who is knowledgeable. It would be interesting to me that someone, never having gone through puberty, and having been castrated..could still get it up..let alone have a notorious sex life

    I got boners when I was a little kid years before puberty.

    it is not your lack of drink, but muscles or face thats the reason. The only reason they'd want you to drink is so you focus on that and dont hit on them I don't even go to partys, at least not till I get more muscle on my arms.

    If Hoppi said it then it must be true.

    In regards to S.A.F's posting, yes I remember clearly getting wood before my testes began pumping out T. In the transgender community, those with regiments that eliminate T (usually through oral progesterones, shutting down LH from the pituitary) are still able to get wood. The complaint is spontaneous erections, EG morning wood dimish. Voluntary wood is still achievable through visual, mechanical stimulation, ect... I think that ED then develops over time as the corpus cavernosium begins to atrophy and fill with adipose tissue because of a lack of nocturnal erections. I heard nocturnal erections are an important part in maintaining healthy physiology of the erectile tissues. Anyways, side note. For those truly concerned over both hairloss and ED, I would say that a small dosage of viagra nightly before bed to provide good blood flow to the wang should compliment any regiment that causes ED.
    I also think that maybe Velluti learned to adapt to sex w/o T, he psychologically controlled his libido more than T did... Just my two cents.
