Or is it possible to have one but not the other? Reason I'm asking is because my sex drive has always been really high and I make pretty easy gains in the gym.. but at the same time I have slight gyno and trouble growing a good beard and chest hair.. I thought high testosterone would help with these too?

Does having a high sex drive always mean you have high testosterone levels?

I don't produce a lot of body hair and find it nigh on impossible to grow a beard. But my sex drive is through the roof. I wanna screw anythin with reach. It's worse when you work in retail and 90% of customers and staff are girls aged 16-30.
The natural secretion of testoterone in your body doesn't directly correlate with body hair. Genes play a factor 2. My uncles also don't grow much facial/body hair.☆☆☆υк ¢яєω☆☆☆

tribulus increases libido through the roof but has no evidence backing it up that it increases testosterone production or free testosterone levels.
just like extremely low levels of estrogen could kill your libido.
libido and testosterone levels have a relationship like muscle size and strength do"If I hit my mom back I'd be dead" - Ronnie Coleman
Michael Jackson "King of Pop"
Whitney Houston "GOAT"
Donna Summer "Queen of Disco"
Luther Vandross "The Real R&B King"

There's a lot of things that factor in a high libido. Stemming from physical, to psychological. In regards to testosterone, high levels are one of the largest factors to contribute. That, coinciding with "androgen receptivity". The former is what can be measured, unfortunately the latter cannot be. However it is assumed to be relatively constant because it is unmeasurable.
Your testicular size may be correlated with your production of testosterone, considering it's made in the testis. However, it is more related to the production of sperm. That being said, the pituitary hormones related to these cross-relate (FSH, LH) therefore generally speaking, even if you have high sperm production, you should experience high testosterone production as well.
Furthermore, excess testosterone is directly converted to oestrogen, which has a direct role of causing gynecomastia.
Hair growth is mostly related to DHT, which is a more potent form of testosterone. Unfortunately I cannot explain why your hair growth doesn't match your high testosterone levels.
