Interesting 'out of the box' thinking there, Jack. Forgive my off the hip response, but I do recall seeing an Oprah or some such in which testosterone replacement therapy is being used to help ladies who are no longer, how shall I say this tactfully?, at the point in their life when anyone believes the next will be their 29th birthday, regain a fundamental human urge which they have reported to be less than it once was.
(K, did my best. PC Police, file your best charges)
What does this have to do with clusters? Not a friggin' thing, I imagine, except that it illustrates that testosterone is more than just a handy punch line for male-bashing jokes.
It does seem, as Jack said, that MOST of us are male, MOST of the males first get clusters during the years typically considered to be those of peak testosterone production, and that MANY of us seem to report a lessening in either severity or frequency as we age.
Certainly seems worthy of some meaningful discussion and perhaps a bit of research.
