3. Nuts boost Nitric Oxide and also can improve blood pressure and blood flow. All of this is pro-erection even without raising testosterone levels.
4. Nuts are not part of an Ornish-style Low Fat Diet. A Low Fat Diet can literally clear out your arteries and would be appropriate for many middle-aged and beyond guys. However, eating a few nuts is unlikely to skew results significantly in my opinion. A typical low fat diet is about 10% of calories as fat and adding a 1/4 cup of almonds, hazelnuts or walnuts to one's diet will only change one's diet to about 14% fat.
5. While it's true that a Low Fat Diet may in the short term diet lower testosterone a little, there is good evidence that this type of diet actually preserves testosterone decades beyond what someone eating a typical Western Diet achieves. See my link on How to Avoid Andropause for more details.
6. There are many nitric-oxide-promoting foods and drinks and so there is no need to consume nuts. Keep in mind, though, that nuts also have an abundance of certain hard-to-get nutrients, such as Vitamin E as well.
So the bottom line is that nuts are likely relatively neutral with regards to testosterone and free testosterone but have many nitric oxide-promoting properties, making them a valuable weapon for most middle aged and beyond guys. (For those on a strict Low Fat Diet, nuts will not be allowed.)
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.
