Men Who Catcall Might Have Small Balls According to New Study!
Here’s some interesting news on the correlation between catcalling, monkeys and reproductive organs. The guys who catcall you on the street may be doing so to make up for their small…parts!
Jacob Dunn, a scientist and lead researcher of the University of Cambridge’s Division of Biological Anthropology, conducted an experiment with howler monkeys where he found that the primates with louder roars have smaller testes and less sperm.
Dunn explains this saying, “When males invest in large bodies, bright colors, or weaponry such as horns or long canines, they are unable to also invest in reproductive traits.”
Well, they do say guys who talk so big have to do so to make up for smaller things.
This is the first study to find the connection between what Dunn calls “vocal investment and sperm production.”
Since humans descended from primates, this could offer up some explanations when it comes to masculinity.
The anthropology study notes howler monkeys are “in a battle for reproduction geared more toward ‘sperm competition.’ The howler monkeys that live in groups with other males tend to have smaller vocal organs and bigger testes, while the monkeys that are basking in a monkey harem, surrounded by ladies, tend to have larger vocal chords and itty bitty, teeny-weeny testes.”
With this information in mind, remember the next guy who yells at you in public trying to get your attention probably has teeny weeny balls.
