Ok, if it's happened/started, when did it kick in for you ?

Old JB has a thick head of hair - or so I thought, I discovered a bald spot crown-side the other day - the little tinker., I'm 43.

Don't bother me none, I'm certainly not considering a Bobby Charlton.

Jeremy Clarkson, PBUH, is bald too.

You're in distinguished company.

Mine started around thirty. Mostly receding hair-line (forehead going further back before the hair shows up) but also significant thinning at the crown.

The old wive's tale about male balding and looking to your maternal grandfather as an indication of what to expect completely failed for me. He died in his early nighties with WAY more hair than I had at thirty. My own father on the other hand has hair like Homer Simpson in his high school graduation photos. Both my brothers have similar hair loss to me. Thankfully none of us quite as bad as our father.

These days I just keep it shaved. Meh.

I'm not bald!!!!

Ahem. It's a coin sized patch that's all. Probably stress or greens, that's it I need more green stuff in my diet.

Remember, if you are balding in the back you are a thinker. If you are balding in the front you are a lover. If you are balding from the front and back then you think you are a lover.



I am 36, started receding a few years ago. :( Now I am shaved bald with a biker goatee.

Using my above metrics, I am totally a lover...I think.

Got grey hair at 27..looked like a hamster. Had hair not curly and finally white!
I do my trimming and makes me look civilized.

[edit] But now it's hockey, and postseason games. Cannot make a cut on even pubis hair! Your team depends on it!!

The so-called "male pattern baldness" is caused by compulsive masturbation dropping your free testosterone levels down too far. A study in the Lancet showed most bald men were, in the years leading up to peak hair loss, ejaculating an average of three times a day. If you cut back to no more than once a day, the hair loss will stop. Three or four times a week, it will probably grow back (unless you've gone mostly gray already).

Alright, I do believe you have some scientific backing for some of the things you're saying here -- but not for the reasons you list.

"Male pattern baldness" is DIRECTLY linked to testosterone levels being HIGH. So a man with elevated testosterone levels might be compelled to masturbate more frequently than people with lower levels of testosterone. That does NOT mean that masturbation is a cause of balding. They are both indicators of high testosterone levels.

Same basic story goes for the women. Women with elevated testosterone levels are similarly effected. They have higher sex drive and can experience balding as well depending on how high the testosterone levels are.

I really hope you were trolling/joking/sarcastic in your post because I expect more from you than that post. Hopefully I just "read it in the wrong tone".

I think I remember something about resistance to testosterone being important too.

Yeah, that's what they want you to keep telling yourself. "High testosterone". Right. And you got your beard from the high testosterone levels of your childhood suddenly dropping when you entered into manhood, right? :roll:

The baldness cure people want you to think it's from high testosterone so you will not be ashamed and so you will buy their bullshit products (none of which work). If it were actually "manly" to be bald, bald men would be considered attractive (instead of ridiculous) and wouldn't be discriminated against.

And everybody knows the main cause of low testosterone (in the otherwise normal, healthy male) is excessive, rampantly compulsive masturbation. It can also cause penile desensitization, swelling and chafing, which is problematic because doctors then prescribe ointments, but when these patients apply ointment, they can't help but lapse into even more masturbation. It's a real crisis, and it's why you see so many bald men these days.

I'll have you know I have a full head of hair. Not even that tiny dime-sized bald spot.

But it's true. There have been many notable bald men. Abe Licoln, for example: bald and Democrat. And Telly Savallas. Besides, God knows there enough desperate women out there who will tell you it's sexy (a small price to pay for telling them they don't look like a cow). And let's not be shallow, everybody knows fat ugly chicks have the best personalities, right?

I don't care whether you do or don't. Besides, you're going to be reincarnated as a rat, for your mistreatment of cows.

Oh BK!

You usually really follow science! Best of luck to you in your delusional daydream on this subject. I guess you are allowed your scyents (or however it is you usually cleverly intentionally misspell it in the forums here) on at least one subject in the world.

I look forward to agreeing with you again on other subjects where you are in line with the evidence at hand.

Yeah. The "evidence at hand" he says. What do you thing Freud would say about that?
