good dad THIS might come as a surprise to some, that having small balls and a low testosterone level will mean that you’ll be a better father. But this is an obvious result of the economics of the mating game. A blindingly obvious one in fact .

Anthropologists at Emory University found that men with smaller testes were more likely to be directly involved in the care of their toddlers. Smaller testes also correlated with more nurturing-related brain activity.

Gary Becker’s Nobel for Economics was in part gained because he pointed out that mating, the creation of children, is a market very like any other. Women can have some small number of children in their life, it’s a process requiring a great deal of investment from them. Men can sow their seed with wild abandon and have many children. Well, if the birds will let them that is. And that’s where this idea about testosterone (very closely linked to testicle size) comes in.

For the point of the whole game is to have as many and the best grandchildren that one can. But, but, for the women there are two routes to having this most and best.
