Abstract:
The life span of 28 male rats given an opportunity to mate at least once a week has been compared to that of their unmated littermates. The mean life span of the two groups was 734 and 578 days, for the mated and the unmated groups, respectively; the difference was highly significant and approached P ≦ 0·001. It has been previously shown that mated males produce more testosterone; it is suggested that the increased longevity of mated male rats may be the result of more voluntary exercise brought about by elevated levels of testosterone. © 1969.
