I was doing a little research on how chasteberry works. From what I read it has some desireable side effects for me, but so far it appears to be a suppliment for women. I know some religious mideival people used it, but is it safe for men to use at all? Thanks.

So... I'm going to guess this has nothing to do with a pink Blackberry.

As the name suggests, chasteberry (Latin name Vitex agnus-castus) is an herb that was once believed to suppress libido. According to medieval legend, monks chewed on the leaves of chasteberry trees in order to help them maintain their vow of celibacy.

While it is now clear that the herb does not affect sex drive, extracts from the fruit of the chasteberry tree may have some therapeutic effects on conditions related to the female reproductive system. Chasteberry trees, actually small shrubs found in tropical climates, produce flowers and berries that can be dried and used medicinally.

Supposedly, it also affected testosterone levels in men, but many articles say otherwise. Seems to be a myth like saltpetre.

Throughout my time in bootcamp, there were rumors that saltpetre was in the food, but obviously it wasn't. Though it did seem that my libido had dropped significantly. Maybe something was put into the food. Then again, maybe it's just the result of being surrounded by a bunch of other guys and waking up to the smell of feet and ass every morning. :dead:

They fixed that now women are in the barracks, how long before they all shower and poop together? :evil:

I'm not sure seeing a woman on the rag showering will put you in the mood either! oO

Maybe that's why some married people have less sex than before they married?

:???:

There were already integrated (male and female) divisions when I went through. My division was an all-male one though. I would occasionally see the women from time to time while marching around, exercising, and doing other pointless, menial tasks.

One thing I learned well during deployment was that my standards in "acceptable" women would gradually fall the longer I was away from shore. Pretty soon, the ones that could make the elephant man look good were now on my "Yeah, I'd hit it" list. Interestingly, this phenomenon didn't occur in bootcamp.

You don't want to take anything that'll lower your testosterone

This is probably why so many of the ugly women reproduce...

Lack of muscle growth/loss of muscle and a great loss of energy. Loss of libido and ability to have kids also. Unless you have an unhealthily high amount testosterone it's best not to reduce testosterone. There are generally no real benefits I know of from having less.

Not to mention our Psychological state requires testosterone, and low levels can lead to poor mood as well as depression.
