Abstract
A group of hypogonadal and a group of eugonadal (endocrinologically normal) men complaining of sexual dysfunction were treated with androgens. Psychometric measures of sensation seeking, personality and spatial ability were made before and after treatment. Short-term androgen administration had little effect on these measures. However when the two patient groups were compared while receiving no androgen treatment, the eugonadal men produced significantly higher scores on the Sensation Seeking Scale.
