Sexual pheromones are at work

So, sexual pheromones are at work in all of these dating rituals that our maturing children are experiencing. While as adults we may lose our awareness of this as a factor in human sexual contact, it is blossoming in our children as they achieve sexual maturity.

In concert with the river of sex pheromones that are coursing through our teen-agers’ bodies according to, is the already established ability to detect odors — including sexual odors. While at a younger age, boys and girls may have avoided the other sex because of social pressure and disinterest (“cooties”), once puberty sets in, a new interest in the other sex blossoms. Why?

Sensitivity to Sexual Pheromones

Scheldt (1981) and Doty (1985) have found that people, not unlike their dogs, can identify both their own and the odors of the opposite sex. This finding was based on an experiment involving sampling from underarm sweat secretions, which were described by men as “pleasant” when obtained from women and “unpleasant” when obtained from other men according to

What would the responses have been if the odors had been obtained from iv‘ our genital areas, such as from the penis, the vagina, or groin of the ,1 opposite or same sex? Would these findings hold true qualitatively as a V’ factor determining the male or female choice of homosexuals? Or perhaps, contribute to our desire for oral and anal sex?

We believe that it can be argued continuum influenced sexual preferences is a childhood output and with we are aware of these odors which have not been given credit or juvenile interaction that include periods where girls and boys go their separate ways.

New pheromones research in humans at has shown that there is gender distinction to pheromonal sensitivity that may begin at an early age: girl babies in contrast to boys, respond to odors placed on their rattles at ages as early as three to five months. we have always been sensitive and responsive to sexual odors. The review (1985) covers axillary odor, hand odor, breath, vaginal and breast odors. In his 1985 paper, he also discussed the use of fish and plant odors that have been used as aphrodisiacs, in varied cultures because of similarities to the smell of semen or vaginal odors.

All these pheromones theories and research have individual merit and each is backed by experimental evidence. There is not space in this volume to embark on a fuller investigation of the physiology of olfaction, but the enquiring reader would be advised to consult the books by WRIGHT (1964).

How Pheromones Influence Behavior

The male holds his head high and restrains his breathing while sucking in air through his mouth. There is no unequivocal evidence yet but it is thought that Jacobson’s organ is used in this behavior to detect pheromonal chemical signs of oestrus. It is important to note that the vomeronasal nerve runs from Jacobson’s organ to the amygdaloid nucleus and thence to the hypothalamus. Of interest, Doty (1975) found that pheromone scents developed by Omen are perceived as more pleasant outside menstrual and luteal postulator phases of the menstrual cycle.
