The Human Pheromones Phenomenon

Aug 17, 2007
Have you ever considered what role human pheromones play in our day-to-day lives. Is there an invisible force that attracts humans to one another other than our looks and personalities? Is there truth in the rumour that we emit a substance called a pheromone to entice the opposite sex, or for that matter, the same sex in our general direction.

Well, if we take a "leaf out of the book" of our animal cousins then yes, there is a strong possibility that human pheromones are present in our daily interaction with each other.

What Are Pheromones?

In short, pheromones are chemicals detected by an organ in the nose called a vomeronasal organ or VNO. It's connected directly to a part of the brain and unlike the nose which detects ordinary smells, the VNO has been described as being super sensitive capable of picking up the scent of these chemicals.

Many studies have been conducted during the past 40 years on the presence of human pheromones since it was discovered that there may be a correlation between a secret scent and attraction. Dr. Winifred Cutler is probably the best known scientist and researcher of pheromones and her studies and findings have opened our eyes to the possibility that they not only exist, but play a prominent role in our lives. Dr. Cutler established a fact that we males have been aware of since the dawn of time... she claims men are important to women. Why? It's been found that women with unusual menstrual cycles, be they long or short, benefit tremendously inhaling the male odour which not only includes a male's natural body odors but in combination with sweat and hormones. Her landmark findings reveal that the chemicals in men's bodies can cause their female sexual partners to not only be more fertile but also menstrually regular and can have a positive effect on the strength of menopausal symptoms.

Now I'm not suggesting every women immediately head down to the local fitness club and charge into the men's change rooms to inhale the male essence; you'll probably get arrested, but Dr. Cutler's findings certainly provide a lot of food for thought.

The Spin-Offs

While Winifred Cutler made some landmark findings towards the benefits of human pheromones such as described above, it was always a safe bet that if there was money to be made from exploiting this discovery then you can be rest assured that it wouldn't be long before pheromones would be readily available to the general public in an artificial form. Today, you only need to do a search for the term and you'll come across any number of offerings. Pheromone product packaged in attractive perfumery containers for both men and women are available from hundreds of suppliers.

Do They Work?

I can't confirm whether these products deliver what they claim but I will say that there are many satisfied pheromone users out there. A line of thought that just knowing one is wearing the product produces a more positive persona within that person. This in turn produces a more attractive disposition. Makes sense.
