NOTE TO READERS: When this project lost substantial funding at the end of 2018, I lost the ability to continue publishing criteria-driven news story reviews and PR news release reviews - once the bread-and-butter of the site going back to 2006. The 3,200 archived reviews, while still educational, are getting old and difficult for me to technically maintain on the back end of the website. So I am announcing that I plan to remove these reviews from the site by April 1, 2021. The blog and the toolkit - two of the most popular features on the site - will remain. If you wish to peruse the reviews before they disappear, please do so by the end of March 2021. After that date you may still be able to access them via the Internet Archive Wayback Machine - https://archive.org/web/.

Up the nose…in the armpit…what else can you do with testosterone?

Putting the update at the top:  hours after posting this, I’ve now been told there are, indeed, anal testosterone suppositories. Thanks to Leonore Tiefer for this tip:

The newest “female sexual dysfunction drug” hitting the PR waves is a nasal testosterone gel in clinical trials in the US, Canada and Australia.

The Dinah Project website wrote about it, “Sexy Sniffing: The Final Frontier?

And on the network TV newscasts, every night Im seeing new commercials for a drug called Axiron.

The pitch:   “There is only one treatment for low testosterone applied to your underarms—AXIRON.”

OK, so?

Would I be drawn to an ad saying: “There is only one treatment for toenail fungus applied to your earlobes.” ?

So… you can swallow, smear, patch and inject testosterone.

Are there any anal testosterone suppositories? If not, why not? There’s a market there.

 

Maybe readers should spend more time browsing questions about disease-mongering of low testosterone.  We’ve written about it in the past.  Examples:
