Human Pheromone Phenomenon

Pheromones are chemical messengers some animals use to communicate, releasing them into the air like natural perfume (or, I guess, BO). They influence the behavior of other animals of the same species, and, nature being nature, that behavior usually involves sex.

Pheromones are well known and documented among insects, where they tend to be pretty simple substances. Some moths are so sensitive that the detection of one single molecule on a male moth's antennae will set him to quivering and searching madly about for the female who air-mailed him the message. It drives him nuts.

Of course, no sooner was that research out than people started hunting around for human pheromones, some sort of magic chemical you could spray on and make the opposite sex fall at your feet, quivering like that male moth. There was never any hard evidence found for human pheromones, but there were suggestions. A researcher found back in the '70's that co-eds who lived together began to show synchronization in their menstrual cycles, apparently by sending some sort of chemical message to one another. She finally found that by placed underarm scrapings from one woman on another woman's upper lip, she could influence the second woman's cycle. That's close, but not exactly what the guys in marketing were looking for.

The best candidates for human pheromones these days are two chemicals called androstadienone and estratetraenol. The first is the male version, the second the female. They do seem to have some effect on the opposite sex-under certain circumstances, some of the time, sometimes, occasionally-but they're still far from making women swoon at your feet.

There's a review of current progress in pheromone research, but don't get your hopes up. Turns out human beings are a bit more complicated than moths.

I am a believer in Human Pheromones. There is hard evidence - and for your own good, I'd recommend for you to re-check this out. I also have a blog about pheromones coming up, and how much they've helped change my life.

I know I'm going against the grain with my recommending something like this to you. However, I feel like you are probably just misunderstood about it. I've enjoyed your other posts. Hit me up an email sometime - I'm willing to talk more about it if you are. =)
