Sexual assault has increased steadily over the last decade. Attempts at a more accurate evaluation of the violent sexual offender have included studies looking for correlation between plasma testosterone and high levels of sexual violence. The present study failed to replicate these findings, however, it confirmed the known association between violence and alcoholism. The significant association between a psychiatric diagnosis of depressive neurosis and low plasma testosterone levels was an associated finding.
