"Increases testosterone. During the 19th century, many doctors and ministers recommended that young men take baths in cold water to reduce the sin of "self-pollution," i.e. whacking off. Cold water was thought to extinguish a man's flaming carnal desires. There was even a ghastly device invented on this principle.

How wrong they were! The same study by the Thrombosis Research Institute cited above showed that cold water showers actually increase testosterone production in men. Increased testosterone levels not only boost a man's libido, but also his overall strength and energy level. If you're looking to increase your testosterone, instead of juicing up like Mark McGwire, hop into a cold shower."

Just found this passage at http://artofmanliness.com/2010/01/18/the-james-bond-shower-a-shot-of-cold-water-for-health-and-vitality/

I'm sure it doesn't boost it an awful lot but every little helps. I thought some of you may find it interesting.

Theres a 101 little things like this that can increase your Testosterone levels a bit E.G Going to watch the football team that you support live raises testosterone levels, but as you said just a bit if you really want to raise them just stick another ml in the barrell.
