GRENOBLE, France – French food may be many things, but spicy, not so much.

But that didn’t stop some researchers at the University of Grenoble from studying the effect of spicy food on French men.

They had the men eat mashed potatoes with hot sauce and without hot sauce, and checked for any changes in their testosterone levels.

And to their surprise, they discovered alpha males like spicy foods. And these alpha males had many things in common, things like hanging out with stimulating social groups, searching for adventure, and taking risks.

Oh, yeah, and sex.

But what about the women, when they eat the hot pepper? Well, the French researchers didn’t check.

So, we’ll just have to wait to see what happens when you mix spice with girls, if you really, really want.
