CONCLUSION: Exposure to higher levels of chronic intense and greater durations of endurance training on a regular basis are significantly associated with a decreased libido scores in men. Clinicians who treat male patients for sexual disorders and, or council couples on infertility issues should consider the degree of endurance exercise training a man is performing as a potential complicating factor.

I'm not a fan of surveys where people are self assessing and providing qualitative judgements as a basis for scientific conclusions.

METHODS
A developed online survey questionnaire was utilized. The questionnaire was based upon pre-existing validated questionnaires and use to assess elements of physical characteristics, exercise training-habits and libido of participants (n=1077). Three evidence-based categories were created for the primary outcome of total libido score and low, normal, and high response categories set. The high and normal categories were combined to form a high/normal score group and the low category formed a low score group. Odds ratios (OR) were calculated to examine group categorization.

I don't know why they would combine the high and normal categories.

Sounds like "we asked people if they lost their Sec drive and on the whole they said yes."

"


i however am...but the scientists have to position themselves correctly and be skilled in categorising the data and understanding the implications

read the paper last night....it didn't make particularly good reading for a piece of science, but, sadly, universities are brownie point hunting these days...

Thing is, there are a lot of other factors that affect this; like stress at work & working hours, a young family, even how long you've been married, your diet..... so exercise is just one of many contributory factors. What do they class as 'extreme' exercise?

Again, it's just confirmation bias.

the questionnaires take that into account, however, the definitions are quite loose...high intensity 70% VO2...

the key fault, which lies in so many allegedly academic papers in sport science in particular, is the universal recommendation from a relatively non universal sample...

They must have used the blurry photo. If you look closer Hammerer, you'll note that the short bit has the head, arms and legs on.
