There are many things about human attraction and relations that scientists are unable to explain, but one easily explained concept is how pheromones affect attraction between two humans of the opposite sex. Pheromones are chemicals that are emitted by animals and these chemicals are designed to attract members of the opposite sex. Pheromones are basically signals to attract the other sex, but at a subconscious level.
The Vomeronasal organ is a special structure designed to detect the scent of these pheromones, and this organ is found inside the human nose. The molecules of pheromones are completely odorless, but they are airborne molecules that are spread through the sweat or even the urine of humans. It is believed that the VNO is only present in roughly 80% of the people living today, and many scientists believe that it is a useless organ.
However, research has shown that the organ plays a vital role in human attraction, thanks to the fact that the pheromone signals are interpreted by the brain as being a stimulus. The signals are sent directly to the part of the brain that controls hormones, emotions, sexual behavior, and reproduction: the hypothalamus.
There is no guarantee that pheromones will work on every person, simply because not every person reacts the same way to the pheromones emitted by each person. In the same way that each person’s brain react differently to visual stimulus, the signals sent to the brain by the VMO are interpreted differently by each person’s brain, meaning that each person will react differently to the pheromones detected by their VMO.
One of the things that render pheromones useless is when they are washed off. When water runs over the body to wash off the sweat, the pheromones being emitted by the body are also washed off. This means that any pheromones left are much weaker, and the final coup de grace is given when pheromone cologne or perfume is sprayed on top of the natural human scent.
There are many colognes that contain pheromones in them, and these colognes are used by many people as a method of increasing their chance for having sex. In reality, pheromones will not increase the body’s sexual stimulus, but will cause the heart to speed up, breathing to become slightly shallower, the mood to change, and the body temperature to rise. Many women interpret this as being sexually aroused, but the truth of the matter is that pheromones are not directly linked to sexual arousal.
Pheromones have, however, been proven to increase the chance that women will feel more attracted to a man. The results of the pheromones in colognes will be different according to the woman, as well as according to the pheromones in the cologne. Woman have been known to be much friendlier with a man wearing pheromone cologne.
Three types of pheromones used in colognes
Androstenone and Androstenol are both pheromones that are created when the bacteria commonly found on the skin comes in contact with sweat. Androstenol is believed to affect a woman’s impression regarding how sexually attractive, confident, and intelligent a man is, Androstenone has been thought to the scent that indicates a man’s dominance over a woman, and they are attractive to women but repulsive to men.
Copulins are secreted from the vagina, and they are known to increase the levels of testosterone in men and make women in question appear to be more attractive.
There are many colognes that contain the androstenone and androstenal pheromones, and many men have tried these colognes to great effect. As mentioned above, each woman reacts differently to the combination of each man’s unique pheromones and their VMO. Using these pheromone colognes may increase the amount of communication you receive from women, an increase in the number of women willing to be your sexual partner, an increased pleasure and passion in sex, and an increase in your self-confidence. Individual results may vary, but these are just some of the benefits that many men have experienced when using pheromone colognes.
