Learning about the Existence and Capabilities of Human Pheromones

What can pheromones do to increase a man’s chance in attracting women for one-night stands? Pheromones, though these chemicals are more commonly associated among animals and insects, many researchers have proven that humans can also produce the same chemicals that animals and insects use to attract mates for procreation. So what is pheromone?

What is Pheromone? A pheromone is a secreted or excreted chemical factor that triggers a social response in members of the same species. But other than animals, humans are also said to produce the same type of chemicals which is said to have played its role in attraction as well as in other forms of social interaction.

Human Pheromones One case study done to prove the existence of the existence of huma pheromones was that of Martha McClintock of the University of Chicago. Her studies exposed a group of women to a whiff of perspiration from other women. It was found that it caused their menstrual cycles to speed up or slow down depending on the time in the month the sweat was collected: before, during, or after ovulation.

Therefore, this study proposed that there are two types of pheromone involved: "One, produced prior to ovulation, shortens the ovarian cycle; and the second, produced just at ovulation, and lengthens the cycle".

  1. You have probably heard of the Seven Wonders of the World before, creations that are as magnificent as they are mysterious. Well, now that most of them have been destroyed by various natural disasters, many modern men are thinking it’s high time to come up with a new list, with the first entry being: Women. For longer than we can measure, men have always remarked on women as being extremely difficult to understand, operating on an entirely different level than men in terms of what and who they find attractive. But with the help of good old fashioned science, researchers think they have found the great equalizer, the thing which activates the female sex drive, and it’s been inside your body all along. The answer is pheromones.
