I have be wondering over the years, how testosterone levels relate to facial hair and body hair growth.
I am 40 years old and only need to shave every 3 days or so. I can grow a beard but in comparison to some guys, it grows in quite slowly. I have chest and abdominal hair but not very much hair on my legs or arms/hands. For some odd reason, I have always wanted more hair on my arms, hands and chest.
I can remember back in junior high school of some kids hitting puberty and within only 2 or 3 months being able to grow a full thick beard and mustache at around 14 years old. Same applies for body hair.
I still have velous (soft, fine unpigmented) hairs on my arms and hands as well as chest and stomach. In amongst these velous hairs there are some dark terminal hairs. Even in my twenties and early thirties I still felt that my potential for facial and body hair development was being delayed or stunted due to lack of testosterone. I used to jerk off at least 10 times a week starting at about 12 years old and continued to jerk off in a similar pattern until I was about 30. Now I know that excessive ejaculation depletes the body of zinc which is essential for proper testosterone levels (total and free) and androgen receptor quantity and sensitivity. Plus, ejaculation increases levels of prolactin which lowers testosterone and dopamine levels. I've been taking extra zinc (and copper) daily and increased my levels of healthy fats considerably to see if I can kick start any physical signs of extra masculinity. As well as limiting ejaculations to only every 10 days or so.
How old were any of you guys when you could really grow a good beard ect. and what kind of masturbation/ejaculation patterns have you had since you were young?

I really don't think there is a correalation at all. I'm 31, and have friends/aquaintances of various ages. I have a very hairy chest naturally, along with abs, legs, butt, and groin area. On my face, I can grow a full moustache very quickly, but my beard is patchy in some places.
I have friends who can grow a full beard in a week or so, but have relatively sparse chest hair or leg hair. As to testosterone, I am more heavily muscled than my friends, but can't grow a really decent beard. I think, from what I've seen, that there is not a link between the two.
I found out how much fun my dick could be when I was 12 years old. I always masturbate, and for the last 10 yrs +, I've gotten pussy very regularly. I stay horny. I would say that I ejaculate about 2 times a day...sex included. The days I don't have sex, I may j/o 2 -3 times per day. I do take a multi-vitamin high in zinc because of this.
I really think that anything will basically be determined by your genetics. Short or tall, stocky or slender, hairy or not, your genes will determine this for you. Obviously, a person can change their build, but not so much other things.

I don't have a lot of hair on my body, which consider as a good thing. The growth of my facial hair is normal, within a week of not shaving I can have facial hair of approx. 2 cm (1 inch). So it's not that fast but also not too slow. My ejaculation frequency is 2 or 3 times a week. I think I've read somewhere, that when you ejaculate, your facial hair will grow faster. Zinc is needed when you're growing hair.

This might have more to do with your ancestry. If you are fair and of Nordic origin you probably don't have much body hair. On the other hand have seen some individuals that couldn't go out in the woods during bear season for fear of being shot.
You might want to add some Biotin to your Zinc routine. Research your Zinc tablets for bio-availability.
By the way do you have a wife and/or girlfriend to supply mud for your duck?

When I started PE, I had almost complete ED. I followed the directions on this web site , the ED started to get a little better, but I went to the doctor to have things checked out. My testosterone was real low, the doctor prescribed Androgel for me.
I have always had a hairy body, but before I started taking Androgel, the hair on my arms, legs & chest was almost gone. Now I got as much hair as when I was young & it grows real fast. For me low testosterone caused low hair growth.
I have cut back on the Androgel per day. I take ZMA every night before bed, ginseng, tonkat ali, Tribulus extract & L-Arginine, I take in the morning. I take these 5 days a week & take the weekend off. I drink green tea daily, I take grapeseed, green tea & pine bark complex, along with hawthorn berry to help control my blood pressure. I have taken blood pressure medicine for 45 years, my pressure was creeping back up, now it stays 115 over 65 all the time.
I know PE works, I have gained almost 2 inches in length & 1.25 " in girth. I did not get into PE for growth, but for ED. PE, along with herbs & raising my testosterone has cured ED 95 % of the time.
I really think if your testosterone was not too low, herbs & PE would take care of the ED.
I am sorry I got off your question about hair growth, but for me raising my testosterone levels increased my hair growth & my hair is not as gray as it was. I am 65 years young, so patience, PE, herbs & a trip to the doctor, can help.

Drink lots of green tea.

It does appear the combination helps my testosterone. I started taking the Five G's also, and that has helped as well. Pre-Pe my erections were getting pretty soft, but I found kegels have really changed that.
