This planet is suffering from an epidemic of weak and sloppy men.

How weak and sloppy, you ask?

  • In 2020, a third of young men (aged 18 to 24) reported having experienced NO sexual activity in the past 12 months; a significant increase in sexless young men compared to the start of the decade.

A landmark study, published in a 2007 edition of the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, concluded that men’s average testosterone levels have been dropping by 1% every year since 1980.

There are lots of crazy theories behind why this is happening. Some are blaming mobile phone signals, plastic food wrapping and soy. Others point to the traces of female birth control products found in tap water. But there’s little evidence to support these claims.

More likely, it’s due to an increase in obesity levels and a decrease in men’s physical activity over the years. A drop in cigarette usage has probably played a role, as has the way modern…
