Human Pheromones

What is the Role of Pheromones in Human


While there are some men and women who would be thrilled to walk into a club or bar and instantly have every person of the opposite sex flock to their side and vie for their attention, most of us would be thrilled to just to have the attention of one or two members of the opposite sex whom we like. Luckily for us, Pheromones won’t make everyone of the opposite sex suddenly fall in love or even lust with you.

Pheromones and Attraction

You and I both know that we don’t find everyone we meet attractive and pheromones whether natural or synthetic isn’t going to change that. Pheromones won’t create desire it simply enhances it. This means that if there is a member of the opposite sex who is all ready attracted to you, producing or wearing the right Pheromones will increase that attraction and make it more likely that that person will be drawn to you enough to approach you in an effort to see if you feel the same attraction.

While pheromones serve many other functions other than attracting members of the opposite sex to one another, manufactures of synthetic pheromones tend to use them for purely cosmetic purposes. The main reason for this is because most of the pheromones that are believed to be isolated have to do with attraction and sexual behavior. Not to mention that romance plays a big part in our lives and most of people are interested in their romantic life.

What Do Pheromones Smell Like?

We’ve all found ourselves attracted to at least one person in our lives without knowing exactly why we feel such an attraction for them. Looking back you may be wondering if pheromones played a role in that attraction and if so what pheromones smell like. The problem is that no one really knows, because the scent of pheromones is so subtle that we don’t really realize we are evening detecting an odor. When you think about it its a bit strange that we can react to a scent we are not even aware of.

How Do Pheromones Promote Positive Health

In a few cases pheromones can actually cause physiological changes, (such as in 1986 study conducted by Dr. Winnifred Cutler and colleagues in which they proved that pheromones given off by men could actually improve women’s reproductive health.) it is most often the case that pheromones promotes emotional health because these chemical scents change the way others perceive us and relate to us.

When we get the attention of someone of the opposite sex, we feel more attractive and interesting. In turn these feelings lead to us feeling more self-confident and friendly towards other. We socialize more and get more enjoyment from our interaction with people both of the opposite sex and with people of the same sex.

There is still a lot that scientists don’t know about these chemical scents called pheromones, but so far what they do know can certainly make for a more interesting and exciting life for all of us!
