Could Pheromones Make You More Attractive?

Mar 25, 2008
There is a lot of research currently being conducted concerning pheromones and the role they play in human behavior. It has long been established that many insects, birds and animals are equipped with pheromones to excite or alter a specific behavior due to the scent emitted by the chemicals. For example, ants have been shown to use a natural chemical to mark the path between a food source and their nest for them and others to follow when returning with food.

According to research, pheromones are chemicals presented by an animal or insect that invites or alters the behavior in those that come into contact with the specific scent. In some species, the female emit a scent to let the males know they are ready for breeding and the males are believed to emit a scent designating their breed and species and to let females know they are available.

Pheromones were first discovered in the insect world and later in mammals. There is recent research that shows that human beings do emit certain chemicals through their sweat glands that attract the opposite sex. Some of the chemicals have no effect on others. Research indicates that sexual preference also is involved in the type of reaction elicited by their release.

Different Scents Affect Different Behavior

Different types of pheromones exist in the animal kingdom. Dogs and cats for example use pheromones in their urine to mark territory. It is common in houses with more than one animal as they will stake out their ground for other animals within the home making it clear who is the boss. Plants also use alarm pheromones to signal that danger exists to other plants. The plants picking up the warning signal will then release chemicals to make them less apealing for bugs.

Pheromones are used by some animals can attract members of the opposite sex up to two miles away. Typically, this is used by females of the species to attract males and although its attractant initially is strong, it wear off quickly. Other attractants are meant to attract the males within a much closer distance and initially is weaker, but will linger in the air longer.

Some animals such as boars emit pheromones to find a willing mate. The males will send the chemicals into the air in a cloud form over a group of sows. They then for the reaction of the sows and those that react to the scent are indicating they are ready to mate. Depending on the strength of the chemical released the male can usually have their choice of available sows, but some sows may be more ready and willing than others and begin to fight for the opportunity.

Humans Are Affected by Pheromones as Well

Recent studies in have found that pheromones create a strong attraction to members of the opposite sex, and this research is the foundation for marketing many products claiming to work for humans as well. While perfume and colognes have been used for many years to make people more attractive, the idea creating the same desire in people as in animals, is very tempting.

Every person is different in their chemical make up, pheromones on humans will take on an aroma unique to the person wearing the scent. While the scent, straight out of the bottle may smell the same, or have no odor, it will represent a different scent on each different person wearing the pheromone cologne or oil.
