Testosterone or the male hormone responsible for the sexual drive in the males is by far the most important hormone in the men’s body. It is one of the biggest reasons that men get turned on when they see the object of their desire. Of course, testosterone is not the only determinant of the sex drive of the male but it plays a very big role. In the lady, sex hormones do not play such a vital role as much as her emotional interactions with her partner and the behavioral cues that she gets from her prospective partner.

Have you ever heard about the Irritable Male Syndrome? This ailment is a new addition to the already long list of sexual dysfunctions that can affect a male. It is called IMS for short. The syndrome is itself a result of low testosterone in the man’s body.
