Applying Androgel to Armpits?

Does anyone know how much more test is absorbed through the armpits? I know the testicles absorb 5x more, but because of DHT it’s not a good idea. Do you think the armpit area absorbs 2 or 3x as much? I’ve read about several people getting better results this way…

One reason you put the gel on your shoulders and arms is that the amount of hair there is less, on most. Hair seems to inhibit absorbtion. Is the skin very thin there? I think its too hairy.

Only way I know is to try it yourself.

BTW: There are a lot of nerve endings there. Its actually an excellent place to punch an opponent/assailant.
