Term: Testosterone
Definition (Myers): the most important of the male sex hormones. Both males and females have it, but the additional testosterone in males stimulates the growth of the male sex organs in the fetus and the development of the male sex characteristics during puberty.(1)
Definition (alternative): a steroid hormone from the androgen group. In mammals, testosterone is primarily secreted in the testes of males and the ovaries of females, although small amounts are also secreted by the adrenal glands. It is the principal male sex hormone and an anabolic steroid. (2)
Contextual explanation: It is a hormone that makes up male characteristics. The more you have it, the more masculine you get. A girl that has a high level of testosterone is most likely to be very unwomanly. A guy that has a high level of testosterone has a high possibility to get aggressive and aroused very quickly.
