In brief: Yes.
Testosterone levels are directly correlated with the production of body oils, ie.
Sebum. This is the substance that leaves "fingerprints." did you know that babies leave virtually no fingerprints, and a man's will last longer on a surface than a female? With lower oil production, bacteria that produce body odor have less to break down into acrid odor. Yes, you will perspire less!
