Fox News host Tucker Carlson was roasted earlier this week when he suggested that men undergo ‘testicle tanning’ as a way to increase their testosterone – but according to five different guys who have tried it, the process has indeed boosted their ‘sexual desire,’ ‘erection quality,’ and improved performance in the bedroom.

Tucker, 52, left many people on the internet bewildered after he suggested that guys ‘tan’ their private parts as a way to feel more manly in a preview for his upcoming documentary about ‘masculinity.’

Entitled The End of Men, the doc is set to focus on the ‘total collapse of testosterone levels in American men,’ and will showcase some of the things that the political commentator believes men can do to fix it. 

The sneak peak showed a man standing on a rock with no clothes on in front of a giant machine that projected a red light onto his crotch – seemingly tanning his private parts.

Although Tucker called it ‘testicle tanning’ in the clip, the process that he is referring to is actually called red light therapy – which not about making your body tan, but rather, ‘improving the skin’s appearance’ and ‘reducing wrinkles, scars, redness, and acne.’

It turns out, many men swear by red light therapy and the positive effects it has had on their bodies – including their testosterone levels and sex drive.

What is testicle tanning? 

  • ‘Testicle tanning’ refers to red light therapy – which not about making your body tan, but rather, ‘improving the skin’s appearance’ and ‘reducing wrinkles, scars, redness, and acne’
  • To date, there’s a lot of ongoing research, publication of small studies, and much discussion on the internet about the effectiveness of red light therapy for all types of health uses
  • Red light therapy is said to stimulate the mitochondria in your cells – which creates energy for the body
  • With more energy, other cells can do their work more efficiently, such as repairing skin, boosting new cell growth and enhancing skin rejuvenation
  • Red light therapy uses very low levels of heat and doesn’t hurt or burn the skin. It’s not the same type of light used in tanning booths, and it doesn’t expose your skin to damaging UV rays
  • Although research is still ongoing, some studies have suggested that it could also help with dementia, dental pain, hair loss, and testosterone levels
  • When energy is being synthesized and distributed more efficiently at the cellular level, it allows the various systems in the body to function more efficiently as well. This includes the hormone-producing endocrine system

DailyMail.com spoke to five different guys who have tried red light therapy on their private parts, and the testicle tanning devotees dished on the way it made them feel, why they did it in the first place, and how it effected their sex lives.

Red light therapy is a treatment that uses low wavelength red light to improve your skin’s appearance, such as reducing wrinkles, scars, redness, and acne, according to My.ClevelandClinic.org.

‘To date, there’s a lot of ongoing research, publication of small studies and much discussion on the internet about the effectiveness of red light therapy for all types of health uses,’ it reported.

‘Results of some studies do show some promise, but the full effectiveness of red light therapy has yet to be determined.’

Red light therapy is said to stimulate the mitochondria in your cells – which creates energy for the body.

‘With more energy, other cells can do their work more efficiently, such as repairing skin, boosting new cell growth and enhancing skin rejuvenation,’ Cleveland Clinic said.

WebMD added that ‘red light therapy uses very low levels of heat and doesn’t hurt or burn the skin.

‘It’s not the same type of light used in tanning booths, and it doesn’t expose your skin to damaging UV rays.’

Although research is still ongoing, some studies have suggested that it could also help with dementia, dental pain, hair loss, and testosterone levels.

Rouge.care wrote that ‘red light therapy is a promising way to boost testosterone naturally, safely, and with virtually no side effects.’

‘Light in red and near-infrared wavelengths penetrate deeper into the skin than other lights on the spectrum,’ the outlet explained.

‘When energy is being synthesized and distributed more efficiently at the cellular level, it allows the various systems in the body to function more efficiently as well. This includes the hormone-producing endocrine system.’

‘I saw a significant jump in testosterone,’ says Jay Wiles, 34, a licensed clinical psychologist from Greenville, South Carolina

Jay Wiles, 34 – a licensed clinical psychologist from Greenville, South Carolina – said he became interested in red light therapy after he heard of its mental health benefits

Although Jay was'certainly skeptical' at first, he became'sold on the idea' as soon as he started trying it out, and has been doing it every day ever since

Jay Wiles, 34 – a licensed clinical psychologist from Greenville, South Carolina, and the cofounder and chief scientific officer at Hanu Health – said he became interested in red light therapy after he heard of its mental health benefits.

Jay said he does it for 20 minutes each day - and he doesn't only focus on his private parts; he places a red light on his entire front side for 10 minutes and his entire backside for 10 minutes

Jay said he does it for 20 minutes each day – and he doesn’t only focus on his private parts; he places a red light on his entire front side for 10 minutes and his entire backside for 10 minutes

‘Initially, it was of interest to me because I had heard about it from a mental health standpoint,’ he explained to DailyMail.com. ‘For me, I was most intrigued about how I could utilize it with my patients.

‘I’m all about – how can I optimize health and well being? [I’m interested in] anything that can make it the best it possibly can be.

‘It was just for mood improvement, my testosterone levels were really great, libido was really great. I never had any problems in that area.’ 

Although Jay was ‘certainly skeptical’ at first, he became ‘sold on the idea’ as soon as he started trying it out.

He first started using red light therapy in 2016, and has been doing it every day ever since.

‘The first initial time I used it, it felt nice and cozy and warm but I don’t think I necessarily felt it was life changing,’ he recalled.

According to the psychologist, since he started doing it, he has seen a jump in his testosterone levels

‘But I found that the more I used it, with repeated exposure, there was more of a compounding impact that I had. 

‘I was feeling more energetic, more vitalized, my mood was better, I felt better mentally [clearer].’

Jay said he now does it for 20 minutes each day – and he doesn’t only focus on his private parts; he places a red light on his entire front side for 10 minutes and his entire backside for 10 minutes. 

And according to the psychologist, since he started doing it, he has seen a jump in his testosterone levels.

‘I took my testosterone pre-utilizing the panel back in 2016, and then I took it after about three months of use – and I saw a significant jump in free testosterone,’ he revealed. 

He said his ‘overall mood’ and ‘sense of well-being’ have also significantly improved from using red light therapy.

‘When I utilize red light therapy, I feel more energetic, I feel happier, I feel more content,’ he shared. 

When it comes to his sex life, Jay said he didn't have'a deficit' before he started using red light therapy, adding,'But overall I would say that I did feel increased desire, if you will'

He said red light therapy also helps him ‘recover from hard workouts’ and heal ‘any wounds’ or ‘damage’ he has on his skin.

‘I also noticed a lot clearer, more smooth skin. My skin is rejuvenated with the use of red light therapy,’ he said. 

When it comes to his sex life, Jay explained that he didn’t have ‘a deficit’ before he started using red light therapy, but added, ‘Overall, I would say that I did feel increased desire, if you will.’

Jay said his friends and family have been nothing but supportive when it comes to his use of red light therapy. 

‘The way I conceptualized it and spoke about it to others is that, it’s kind of like a concentrated way of getting sunlight,’ he told DailyMail.com.

‘People near me understood it and understood what I was doing and why I was doing it.

‘Back in the day in 2016 [when I first started doing it], there wasn’t nearly as much research around evidence for the efficacy of red light therapy.

‘There was gonna be a lot more skepticism there but I don’t recall people ever really voicing to me that they thought it was a bad idea, they were just like, “That sounds odd.”‘

Jay, who gets his testosterone tested quarterly, added that boosting his testosterone is not a ‘priority focus’ for him.

‘I am a young a male. I’m in my mid-30s so it’s not as much of a concern as someone in their mid-40s might have,’ he added.

‘But again, I test for it so I know exactly where I am. And if I did have problems with it, I would put more emphasis and focus on it.’

‘My sexual desire, my libido, and my erection quality all went up,’ says Ben Greenfeld, 40, an author from Spokane, Washington

Ben Greenfeld, 40, an author from Spokane, Washington, said he became interested in red light therapy back in 2016, after he heard about it online.

Ben, who also runs his own podcast and calls himself an ‘immersive journalist,’ decided to try it so he could let his listeners know if it really worked.

‘I do a lot of blogging and podcasting and writing about health and fitness and biohacking and often include researcher-writing on these more fringe things people might do to improve their health or their performance or longevity,’ he explained.

‘So for me, it was like, “Oh, people are talking about this a lot now, I should probably wrap my head around how this works, what it feels like, and what it does for me personally,” just so I could bring an informed voice to the table and report back on how it worked for me.’

Ben is convinced that testosterone is decreasing across America, and he often speaks out about the ways that men can improve their levels on his podcast and on his social media. 

‘Testosterone levels are declining,’ he told us. ‘That is probably due to a variety of factors like less hard-manual labor – we know lifting heavy weights and chopping wood increases testosterone.

‘Part of it is probably an increase in the synthetic hormones in our environment and lifestyle, like eating out of plastic containers and using Styrofoam.

He also said he feels like he has more'sexual energy' since he started using red light therapy. He shared:'My sexual desire, my libido, even my erection quality - all of that went up'

He also said he feels like he has more ‘sexual energy’ since he started using red light therapy. He shared: ‘My sexual desire, my libido, even my erection quality – all of that went up’

He said he has seen an increase in his testosterone, but added he can't say for sure whether or not it came from the red light therapy or from other activities he does to boost his levels

Ben said red light therapy'just feels good.' He added:'It's warm, your blood is flowing. You feel really good, it kind of wakes you up'

Ben said red light therapy ‘just feels good.’ He added: ‘It’s warm, your blood is flowing. You feel really good, it kind of wakes you up’

‘Using [certain] personal care products and household cleaning products can disrupt some of your natural hormone production.

‘Some of it might be guys engaging in less difficult competition. I would suspect that compared to being in the backyard playing football or doing a workout, sitting inside in a dark basement playing video games is probably not as good for testosterone levels, and that’s not based on any research, that’s just a hunch.

‘It’s definitely decreasing in America, I’ve seen some studies that do indicate that testosterone levels in men are declining.’

Ben participates in red light therapy every morning all over his body, and he said he’s noticed an improvement in his energy levels during the day, as well as the amount of sleep he gets at night.

He also said he feels like he has more ‘sexual energy’ since he started using red light therapy.

‘My sexual desire, my libido, even my erection quality – all of that went up. It’s definitely doing something in that department,’ he shared.

On top of all that, he said he’s also seen an ‘increase in his overall skin health.’

He added: ‘I used to get bits of acne or eczema here and there, I would have scars and wounds – which wouldn’t heal too quickly – from things like obstacle course racing, and my skin is just super healthy [now], like, it’s definitely done something to my skin.’

When Ben first heard about red light therapy, he was certainly skeptical. He recalled thinking,'Screw that! I'm not gonna radiate my balls'

But he said he then found out that the'light these devices focus on is less of the radiating ultraviolet light and more of the infrared light'

But he said he then found out that the ‘light these devices focus on is less of the radiating ultraviolet light and more of the infrared light’

When it comes to the numbers, he said he has seen an increase in his testosterone levels, but added that he can’t say for sure whether it came from the red light therapy or from other activities that he does to boost his testosterone – like eating high-protein foods and working out. 

‘Theoretically, if you’re increasing blood flow to an area because you’re standing in front of a red light with your pants down, you’re probably going to get a little bit of a boost in libido or sexual desire which may then cause an increase in testosterone,’ he said.

‘Your whole body is covered in photo receptors, so it’s possible that it’s actually triggering some of the photo receptors in the genital area and that could increase testosterone theoretically.

‘You have a lot of people who are using it and a lot of anecdotal reports now of guys who are like, “I had better sex and higher testosterone.”

‘My take on it is, I don’t think there’s ever been a really good robust clinical study with a large enough population size to be able to say, infrared light, if you shine it on your genitals, it’s gonna increase your testosterone.

‘However, there’s enough kind of anecdotal evidence floating around, and I can tell you that for me personally, I do this every morning – I walk into my office, I pull down my pants and I flip on a red light in front of me and a red light behind me and I bathe my whole body in red light.’

He continued: ‘It just feels good. It’s warm, your blood is flowing, your skin gets all kind of pinkish-red because of the increase in blood flow. 

‘You feel really good, it kind of wakes you up. Does it increase testosterone? I don’t know.

‘I have tested my testosterone – my blood, salivary, and urine testosterone levels – and found that they did increase when I was doing red light therapy but this is not a careful analysis.

‘It’s possible that other things that I was doing at the same time [could have] contributed.’

When Ben first heard about red light therapy, he was certainly skeptical. He recalled thinking, ‘Screw that! I’m not gonna radiate my balls.’

‘But then I found out that the light these devices focus on is less of the radiating ultraviolet light and more of the infrared light,’ he added.

On top of participating in red light therapy every day, he also makes sure to stay physically active, to eat a nutrient-based diet, and to sleep well. 

‘If a guy is sleeping well, lifting weights, taking care of his body, and eating a nutrient-based diet and wants to try something like red light to raise their testosterone levels a little bit, I don’t think it’s gonna do any harm to anything except his pocketbook,’ he concluded.

Joshua Settlage, 25 – a certified strength and conditioning specialist from California, and the CEO of Settlage Strength LLC – learned about the potential benefits of red light therapy through work.

He was specifically interested in it’s ‘ability to help improve recovery following training’ – and ‘decided to give it a shot.’

He said he also wanted to ‘boost his testosterone’ and ‘enhance his athletic performance.’ 

He too believes that testosterone levels are decreasing in men across America – which he called a ‘very serious problem.’ 

‘Poor diet, decreased physical activity, and increased obesity rates are some big issues that are contributing to a decline in the average male’s testosterone levels,’ he told DailyMail.com.

‘This is a very serious problem in my opinion. Low testosterone in males is often a byproduct of a man living at a level much lower than his full potential. 

‘Men should be strong and physically capable of doing challenging tasks. Men should have a level of fitness that permits them able to be ready for most circumstances in life.

‘Men should live a healthy lifestyle. One that includes a sound nutritional protocol that helps their body perform at its best, and daily physical activity.

‘When a man physically feels better and performs better, he is often to mentally feel better as well.’

He started doing red light therapy in the fall of 2019. He now uses it three to four times a week for 20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes at night.

He hasn’t measured his testosterone levels, but told us that he believes red light therapy has improved his sex life.

He added: ‘[It also] improved recovery from training sessions, faster healing of injuries, and improved sleep.’

However, Joshua said he would not recommend red light therapy to other men since he thinks there are many other methods that can improve testosterone – which are a lot cheaper.

A full-body red light machine costs $6,349, while a handheld one can be purchased for $599 from the company Joovv. 

Other brands also sell a red light therapy mask – which is priced at $435, while a facial wand costs $149. You could also get under eye patches for $95.

On top of red light therapy, he said he also eats a lot of'red meat, eggs, and white rice' to boost his testosterone

He said he is ‘very wellness-focused and puts in a lot of effort to maximize his body’s potential’

‘The panels are expensive, and there are many more effective ways to boost testosterone,’ Joshua explained.

‘Mainly from sleep, diet, and exercise. Those are the biggest contributors to boosting testosterone.

‘I would argue that those three make up for about 95 per cent of what contributes to boosting testosterone naturally. The other five per cent includes other remedies like red light therapy.’

On top of red light therapy, he said he also eats a lot of ‘red meat, eggs, and white rice’ to boost his testosterone.

‘I get plenty of sleep. I get outside on a daily basis,’ he shared. ‘I am very wellness-focused and put in a lot of effort to maximize my body’s potential.

‘I am extremely active. I do strength and conditioning sessions three times a week and train jiu jitsu six times a week. 

‘I’d be interested in trying other things, but I’d have to spend a bit of time researching them and weighing out the pros and cons.’

‘I wasn’t too skeptical, before I bought it I did lots of research on it and read quite a bit of studies so I wanted to see how it worked with my body,’ he recalled.

Colton said testosterone levels dropping is'undoubtedly' one of the'biggest problems in society today'

Colton said testosterone levels dropping is ‘undoubtedly’ one of the ‘biggest problems in society today’

He started doing it about three months ago, and he now participates in red light therapy five times a week for 10-15 minutes.

He hasn’t personally measured his testosterone levels, but said he can tell that it’s ‘improved greatly.’

I can tell naturally that it has improved greatly – libido is up, I have more energy during the day, my mood is way better all the time, I’m hungrier and my skin is a lot more clear,’ he revealed.

‘Clearer skin is a big one from red light therapy, it helps a lot with dry and flaky skin.’

Colton said testosterone levels dropping is ‘undoubtedly’ one of the ‘biggest problems in society today.’

‘Men have the T-levels now of 80-year-olds,’ he said. ‘This creates weaker men weaker society and very unhealthy men. 

‘Testosterone isn’t “toxic” it’s healthy and we all need to live a sustainable and long life.’

Colton – who also goes to the gym daily and eats nutritious foods – believes that ‘stress’ and ‘lack of sun’ is contributing to the drop. 

‘Red light therapy is a good treatment for people who live in a place without a lot of sunshine, you just shine it in your testicle to simulate the mitochondria of your cells and get your glands producing more testosterone, which in turn will lower your stress hormone cortisol and leave you less stressed,’ he claimed.

‘You’re going to feel the change immediately,’ says Josh Lekach, 35, a podcaster from Costa Rica

He first got involved in the process after seeing people talk about the positive effects it had on them via Twitter, and the 35-year-old said it instantly made him feel like he was ’15 years old again.’ 

‘I think that if you’re lacking in sunlight and you feel kind of lethargic as a man, you’re going to feel the change kind of immediately,’ he shared.

‘I’ve never had low testosterone – and I have done the blood work to test it out – but as a man, as a young man, I think it’s vital to get as high as a testosterone level as possible and I wanted to try anything to boost it naturally. Sunlight is literally the best thing.’

Josh started sunbathing in the nude after he moved from California to Costa Rica last September, and he said it made him feel ‘massively different.’

‘I feel like I’m 15, I feel like a young man,’ he said, adding that it ‘absolutely’ boosted his sex life.

‘I never had a problem there but it definitely did boost that. I’m trying to make baby number two so fingers crossed that will happen soon.’

Josh said his testosterone levels were in the high 700s before he started going out in the sun every day, and now, it’s in the low 1,000s.

He explained: ‘It also has to do with dieting and exercise and that kind of thing. But before, I would never go out in the sun at all.’

The podcaster is also worried about testosterone levels decreasing in men.

‘There’s people my age who look like they’re 50,’ he said. ‘It has to do with many things. It has to do with modern lifestyle, what people eat, lack of sunlight, lack of meat

‘All of that stuff adds up. It’s the modern lifestyle that has completely neutered the modern man.’

He recommended that every man sit in the sun for five minutes a day. And if they can’t get outside naked, he said they should at least take off their shirts because the chest is the ‘second best place to absorb sunlight.’

He continued: ‘Like I said, our modern environment is completely sterile. That’s not natural, you’re supposed to be exposed to nature, to germs, all these things are good.

‘When you detach yourself from that, any little exposure to anything outside, you become sick.

‘If you get sick regularly, if you feel lethargic as a man, if you don’t have [energy], that fire in your belly, it doesn’t hurt to try it for five or 10 minutes a day. And if it doesn’t work, nothing’s going to happen.’
