The inhibitions of religious origin that have restrained intimate modifications of the human organism now confront the appeal of rejuvenating therapies for an affluent and middle-aged generation that feels entitled to medical advances of all kinds. This sense of entitlement has developed along with the view that desirable modifications of human beings are not violations of human identity but are actually forms of therapy that preserve or enhance the normal self. An important example of this kind of reasoning is the process of rationalization that permits modern societies to overcome traditional doubts about new reproductive technologies such as in vitro fertilization, the freezing of human embryos, and surrogate motherhood.

This early theory of hormone replacement therapy was confirmed when normal functioning was restored by the injection of an extract of the missing organ. The idea that such “chemical messengers” play an important role in regulating physiological processes was revolutionary, because it challenged the nineteenth-century idea that these processes were controlled by the nervous system. Sex hormone therapy originated just over a century ago in a scientifically naïve yet epochally creative experiment by a distinguished European scientist.

More recent claims about the rejuvenating powers of various hormone replacement therapies continue this tradition, showing that popular belief in the power of hormones to shape identity remains the basis of their romantic aura. The idea that testosterone is a potentially rejuvenating force of nature is supported by research on the correlation of testosterone levels with specific character traits and social behaviors.

Dabbs has defined “a high-testosterone approach to life” as a combination of flamboyance, directness, self-confidence, and what he calls “simple thought and action”—a set of traits that are a legacy of our primeval past.
