 Men More Scared of Baldness Than Impotence

A new survey carried out in Britain revealed that men were more afraid of getting bald than becoming impotent.

More than 2,000 men took part in the survey which asked them to name the aspect of ageing that scared them the most. Around 89 percent named impotence but 94 percent said that they were most afraid of losing their hair. Nearly two thirds (64 percent) said that they were afraid of becoming fat while 60 percent said losing their teeth was the most frightening aspect of ageing.

"Hair loss can be genuinely distressing for men. It can't be easily disguised and people do seem to think it's fair game for jokes, unlike things like putting on weight or going grey. Men who lose their hair are expected to adopt a laissez-faire attitude and take insults with good humor. The pressure this causes can have a huge effect on men's self-confidence, which has knock-on effects on their physical and mental wellbeing", psychotherapist Toni Mackenzie told the Daily Mail.
