I really did have to read this twice before it sunk in. Researchers at Emory University studied a group of men from Atlanta, Georgia and have come to the conclusion that men with smaller testicles make better fathers.
I can’t believe they get research grants for this stuff. The world is going to hell in a hand basket, and they are measuring testicles. Anyway…
Apparently brain scans were performed on the men while they were looking at pictures of their children. Men with smaller testicles showed more changes in the part of their brain that shows changes in the ‘reward’ area.
Now this seems a little off to me. Maybe the ‘reward’ area lit up because they liked looking at photographs of children, the researchers only showed them pictures of their own children apparently, who knows what the results would have been if the kids had not been their own. It might not be polite to say such a thing, but I’m not researching this and I am allowed to have an opinion. I think the research should have counted out all other possibilities before coming to a conclusion.
The research was based on animal studies that show well endowed animals are more promiscuous and father more offspring with multiple partners, and they thought it would be a good idea to see if the same applied to humans.
They have come to the conclusion that men with large testicles are indeed more likely to be promiscuous and that they have fewer parenting skills than their small testicled counterparts. (source)
I have some news for the researchers:
It takes far more balls to stick around and raise your kids than to run off and into the wilds of Atlanta and make more babies.
