The authors measured plasma testosterone levels in 21 homosexual women and 19 age-matched heterosexual women. Although values for the 2 groups overlapped considerably, testosterone concentrations averaged 38% higher in homosexual than in heterosexual subjects. A statistically significant inverse correlation between age and testosterone level was found for heterosexual but not for homosexual women.
