A pheromone (from Greek φέρω phero “to bear” + hormone from Greek ὁρμή – “impetus”) is a secreted or excreted chemical factor that triggers a social response in members of the same species. Pheromones are chemicals capable of acting outside the body of the secreting individual to impact the behavior of the receiving individual.
Have you ever been out at the club, and you look at a guy and before even asking his name, or opening your mouth to say hello, you think, “I am going to sleep with him.” I think most people make up their minds about somebody, if they are going to sleep with them or not, the first time they lay eyes on them. That’s why that sly grin just appeared on his face, as your eyes linger on eachother through the club. Yes, I think physical appearance plays a role, and personality as well. But sometimes we find ourselves magnetically attracted to someone. Something that we can’t control. And that my friends, is phermones. I hate going to the gym and smelling the guy next to me sweating. But when you’re rolling around in bed smelling “his stink” it’s a different smell, and you are attracted to it.
Have you ever stood next to a lady at the counter who wore rancid perfume that smelled like your dead grandma? Immediate turn off! Something as simple as the smell of vanilla can especially trigger sexual arousal. They say baby powder is a stimulant, but I despise the smell. So I guess that everybody is different in what is attractive to them. If you wear an unconventional perfume, that might be the strange scent that attracts “him.”Don’t wear cheap perfume ladies.
The men’s cologne which usually increases a woman’s vaginal blood flow is a natural fresh scent, other scents actually decreased a woman’s sexual response. What women found most appealing were very light scents, such as ocean breeze, kiwi, or a combination of baby powder and chocolate. The smell of a mans clean skin with a little sweat, combined with fresh fruity scents, was the strongest stimulant for women. Hirsch’s research also found that men’s penile blood flow increased up to forty percent from the scent of cinnamon buns, roast meat, cheese pizza, chocolate, vanilla or peppermint.” Scientific studies show that they do know that scents stimulate, however, I believe everyone is different as to what scents are attractive to us, and that is what makes certain people attractive to certain people. If the scent of strawberry pie can stimulate me, why can’t his “stink” stimulate me either way?
Stage 1 – lust – ruled by testosterone and estrogen (the sexual hormones)
Stage 2 – attraction – controlled by dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin (those feel-good compounds)
Stage 3 – attachment – initiated by oxytocin (aka: the hormone thought to create the bond between mother and child; known to play a role in trust, empathy and generosity)
