Criminalizing Odd Mating Rituals

Who is really using steroids? Guys kinda like me*, it turns out:

Contrary to popular belief, the typical anabolic steroid user is more like an “Average Joe” than a professional athlete or competitive teenager.

A new survey suggests that the typical anabolic-androgenic steroid (AAS) user is a well-educated 30-year-old male who wants to build muscles and strength and increase his physical attractiveness. Researchers say the results show the notion of the typical steroid user as a “cheating” athlete is inaccurate.

“These findings question commonly held views of typical AAS users and their underlying motivations,” Rick Collins of Collins, McDonald & Gann, PC, in Carle Place, N.Y., says in a news release.


Maybe it’s time to re-think this front in the War on Drugs, too.

*I prefer to make myself more attractive by pouring strong drinks for the ladies, not by injecting myself in the bottom. It seems to work just fine.
