5. Testosterone Protection. Testosterone is the "Sex Hormone," and, in my link on The Causes of Andropause, I discuss how mitochondrial damage is likely one of the root causes of the age-related loss in testosterone that almost all men experience. CoQ10 is known for its mitochondria-protecting superpowers and, therefore, may very well help protect your testosterone over the decades as well.
NOTE: CoQ10 can be expensive in health food stores, but is very reasonably priced on Amazon: Swanson Coq10 100 100 mg Softgels. CoQ10 is poorly absorbed and must be taken with a little fat and ideally a little Vitamin E as well. (Always talk to your doc first and see Caution below.)
6. Libido Protection. Dopamine could be termed the "Sex Neurotransmitter." As I point out in my link on Natural Dopamine Increasers, CoQ10 is also famed for preserving brain dopamine and thus may help with sexual desire and libido.
7. Fertility. Several studies have shown that CoQ10 improves sperm factors and fertility. 
8. Wrinkle Reduction. Topical CoQ10 can also reduce wrinkles if done in the right proportions. There are various Do It Yourself formulations out there, including the Info Packs at Smart Skin Care. What does that have to do with sex? We all know that half of performance is self-confidence and looking better can help dramatically. See my link on Wrinkle Reduction for Men for other ideas as well.
CAUTION: The only caution that I know of with CoQ10 is that one study showed that women with the highest levels of CoQ10 had an increased risk of breast cancer.  This contradicts the work of other researchers, though, who have used CoQ10 to treat cancer. See my link on Alternative Cancer Treatments for more details.
CAUTION: If you have a medical condition or are on any medications, please discuss any changes with your doctor first. Certain supplements, foods and even juices can alter absorption rates of certain medications for example. Play it safe.
