It is half joke, and half truth, and half a view of a differnce in biological gender.
There is never an excuse "ever" to lose control due to horomones, but let me tell you the wave and surge is "tremendous".
I travelled a lot in my careers, and I met with a business woman who after drinks we started to talk at length (as two normal people :) go figure.
She shared her and her husband were trying to conceive and she had to take testerone. The only issue was they gave her to high a dose and she needed to ween off of it.
She stated the sexual surges and urges she felt floored her. Never in her life (and she stated she liked sex and was very active), had she felt he insanity. Her husband loved it for 2 days and then he burned out.
Roughest 30 days of her life (since they were monogamous) .... she stated she never ever doubted what a man went through after that.
