Or maybe it just pheromones, or what some refer to as ‘chemistry’.
Pheromones are defined as hormonal secretions that stimulate a physiological or behavioral response from individuals of the same species.
Not long ago, science isolated a human sex pheromone; this is pretty exciting news, as once isolated and recreated, perhaps the ultimate aphrodisiac truly exists.
You know, way back in the old days, people didn’t wash off most of their pheromones like we do today. Our modern day customs of daily showering, daily bathing, washes away all those lovely pheromones! So, here’s the Catch-22: with all that grooming and personal attention to hygiene in order to attract your sexual partner, you may actually dampen the ‘chemistry’ and raw attraction between you! Now, don’t get me wrong, I love the smell of a freshly showered man, with a faint hint of aftershave…but I also feel a strong attraction to his slightly moist body after he’s just worked out or mowed the lawn. I wonder if it is so much his scent, as much as there is probably a little more circulation going on in there and pumping out those delectable pheromones into my direction. Think about that! It’s the rub!
Yes, there are now quite a few scientific studies indicating their effectiveness in attracting the opposite sex. They will not “drive” the opposite sex madly into your arms. But, they can help:
•”Break the ice” with significantly more potential bed partners. If you’re married or partnered, they can rejuvenate some of the passion lost in long-term relationships
•They also tend to lead to more intense and somewhat animalistic sex
•Have an impact, in general, on your likeability
•They even make you ‘feel’ better about yourself!
So, do human pheromones work on everyone? No, but they will probably work to a varying degree on almost everyone. Pheromone responses vary depending upon the sensitivity of the receiver’s vomeronasal organ (or VNO). For you geeks, humans detect the odorless sex pheromone with the VNO, also called the sixth sense as per Fortune magazine’s Technology column. Located deep in the nasal passage, its only purpose is to detect odorless sex pheromones. Evolution, in it’s grand plan, created this organ to instantly transmit the presence of this hormone to the areas of the brain the regulate sexual drive.
Now, I really do believe great chemistry does involve smell in addition to the visual, mental, physical and emotional connection between people. And though you can’t really ‘smell’ pheromones, our nose does pick them up, and when we like what our brain is smelling, our body and mind does follow.
So, there’s good news…I do believe the added application of pheromones can help enhance or replace natures’ natural sex appeal. And many manufacturers today of spa and/or lotion products now add them to their formulations. I know that’s what we’re trying to do with all of our newest product releases. A few years ago we launched Pure Attraction Pheromone Concentrate by Madame X®, which allows you to pheromone-enhance any of your favorite lotion, body cream, perfume or cologne…just a few powerful drops will do it!
I’m off to the gym to hang out in the weight room…maybe there’s a hunkadorie working up a good sweat ; )
