Socrates said “Know Thyself”. This profound advice is especially important for college males in the 21st century. Starting at the university level life can be challenging. Over 60% of students who have completed their undergraduate education are now females. By 2020 projected college enrollments only include 41% men.
“The Testosterone Trap”
Dr. Malone explores the biology, psychology and sociology behind young men’s sexual behavior. He does so in an effort to help college men understand the forces that are at work in the brain and body that that have both biochemical and societal origins. The circumstances these forces help create can truly fashion a “Testosterone Trap” in which our young men find themselves ensnared. This is to their detriment as well as those with whom they have interacted. By learning to know themselves and especially their chemistry college men may be able to better self-regulate and forge a more positive future for themselves and the greater society. They are sure to become wiser and better men in the process.
