Sense of smell can play a distinct role in the ambit of attraction. Across species, scent is a way for animals to communicate readiness for mating and fertility. Humans are quick to disguise their natural aromas with soaps, deodorants and bottled fragrance. But there is something to be said for the natural odor of humans and the message it sends: sex.
We have all walked past a packed bar on a hot night and caught a whiff of the wares inside. Its not the best smell. But it’s sexy, and makes you want to go inside. And while that distinguishing scent of booze, sweat and body doesn’t evoke a field of daisies, it does universally suggest fornication. Its almost counterintuitive, as masking is an accepted response to our stink. But quite a few studies have shown that there is a link between the natural odor humans give off, and the intimacy that follows.
Pheromones, which are the chemicals that are secreted by animals and associated with scent, are thought to cause behavioral responses to animals of the same species. Few studies have been successfully completed to prove that humans emit these chemicals, but it is generally accepted that scent plays a part in human attraction and intimacy. Luckily for us, tons of companies have manufactured a variety of products that are infused with pheromones and meant to enhance sex appeal of both men and women. Pheromone sprays boost the natural scent that your body gives off to attract potential sexual partners, making you subconsciously more desirable to those around you.
Ultimately, its not just looks that count. While humans have an immediate response once they meet based on appearance, there is a similar response to a potential mate’s stench. And it’s not always an expensive bottle of cologne that will grab the attention of your interest. Sometimes a quick whiff of mild man stink is all you need to win the interest of your coveted mate.
