You have no doubt heard of pheromones by now and how they can help you become more attractive to members of the opposite sex. Maybe you are thinking about trying them out for yourself but perhaps you are still sceptical about whether they will actually work for you.
Pheromones aren’t just some clever marketing ploy dreamt up by marketers to entice you into believing you can become an instant sex magnet. You may well have seen reports on the TV about how the latest pheromone cologne can increase your success with the opposite sex. But behind the hype there has been an incredible amount of scientific studies done into pheromones over the last 25 years.
However this often gets lost behind all the claims about how amazing they are. However what most people really want to know is do pheromones work. The answer to that is yes, based both on the results that people get from using pheromones and the results of pheromone studies conducted by scientists.
So we know that pheromones work, but how do we know this? The answer is simple. There have been many pheromone studies carried out after that last two or three decades not only in humans but also in animals and insects. It is the nature of every living being to procreate and nature ensures this by designing a natural mechanism that attracts members of a species to fertile mating partners. It’s like an insurance policy that nature created to ensure the survival of each individual species.
What are Pheromones?
Pheromones are a chemical secretion that contain information about an organisms state of health, their emotions and in particular their reproductive state. As well as a natural means of seduction they also communicate how you are feeling and others can sense whether you are angry or sad through sensing your pheromones.
Pheromones are like a secret weapon that you can use to enhance what nature has already given you. They work on a subconscious level and bypass the rational mind and evoke feelings of attraction in those who are receptive enough to receive them.
As humans we secrete pheromones naturally from glands in our armpits, navel and genitals. These glands are known as apocrine glands. This secretion is a clear fluid that contains encoded within it our biological data. This information is communicated to the opposite sex and received by their olfactory system which is an extension of the limbic system. This is an ancient part of our mammalian brain that is responsible for controlling our instinctive behaviour such as feelings of anger, fear and the urge to find a partner and procreate.
You may have noticed that certain scents trigger memories that you had long thought forgotten. This is how pheromones work; they trigger feelings in us the same way that a scent can help us recall forgotten memories.
When we receive information from pheromones through our olfactory system it bypasses our rational brain and is decoded directly by our brains behavioural centres. The microscopic nature of pheromones means that they slip through our conscious awareness. However our brains are still so finely tuned to them that we are constantly decoding them even we don’t consciously realise that we are doing so.
Something that should be of great interest men is that women have been shown in pheromone studies that they can detect pheromones in concentrations 1000 times lower than men are able to detect. As a result they are far more receptive to men who have natural pheromones or who enhance them by wearing pheromone cologne.
It would make sense that women would naturally be more sensitive to pheromones as it is the females who have historically had most at stake when it comes to finding a sexual partner. Women are better equipped to find partners with the best possible genes.
It has often been said that women are attracted to men who are tall, dark and handsome. Pheromone studies have also shown that women are more likely to be drawn to pheromones from men who are healthy, fertile and attractive. These particular pheromones have been identified and they can now be synthesised. It is these synthesised pheromones that you will find in today’s pheromone products. They will typically have much higher concentrations of these pheromones to make their effects as potent as possible.
You can give yourself a tremendous advantage with women by tapping into their natural urge to mate by spraying yourself with pheromone spray. Why compete for women when they can compete for you? Attractive women can be choosy with men as they can afford to take their pick. By wearing pheromones you can help make their decision an easy one for them. So do pheromones work? By now I hope you realise that they most definitely do!
