Pheromones: What is there to Know?

Pheromones: What is there to Know?

Pheromones are chemicals that are released from animals and humans. These chemicals are attractants that tell other animals a wide range of things. Things such as type of animal, sex of the animal, social group that the animal is assigned to of course, if the animal is in heat or not. These pheromones are found in bugs as well as aquatic life as-well. These chemicals are freed by the body by excretions. The term pheromones came about in 1959 defining it as chemical substances excreted by animals to trigger reproductive behavioral response from a recipient of the same species.

Pheromones in People are Largely Not Understood

A few researchers have claimed to be able to reduce human excretions from arm abyss sweat and vaginal secretions and turn them into marketable products. These products are widely available in adult novelty stores claiming to bring your partner into a wild craze. Some other researchers claim that science has not developed enough to make this concept an actual reality. They claim that these products are just a marketing tool to sell customers products according to false advertising. One thing that is agreed upon is that the human body does produce and excrete pheromones.

  • The first controlled scientific studies were conducted in 1986 in order to determine if humans did indeed produce pheromones.
  • This test did conclude that humans do produce these chemicals.
  • It was the first time that this theory was actually proved.

Do Pheromones Actually Work?! See Tests And Results Here

via http://Menprovement.com - Pheromones are excreted by many animals to do many things, including attracting the opposite sex. And homans are no different!
  • 2005, there were 4 lessons of pheromones recognized.
  • These 4 were territorial markers, mother-infant, menstrual synchrony and sex-attractant pheromones.
  • Since that time, scientists have discovered a fifth class.
  • This class is sulfated steroids.
  • Territorial markers are considered to ward off others.
  • They could attract same species and same sex but are considered repellents to other species.

Mother-Infant recognition helps the offspring to know who the mother is and identify it with feeding.

Menstrual Synchrony is Probably One of the Most Commonly Known Class

This is where a group of females who have different menstrual cycles are placed together. But after a short period of time, all of the females will start to have their cycles shortened or longer for no apparent reason. Eventually all of the females will have their cycles at or even very near to the same time, even though they started their cycles far apart.

Sex-Attractant Pheromones are the Ones that Marketers Capitalize on in the Adult Industry

These pheromones are just what they appear to be. They attract the opposite sex and provides the perception in order to want to mate. These are also considered nature's way of recreating. Most animals only mate to be able to reproduce. So this is very key to species survival.

Sulfated Steroids are a Social Representation of the Animal that Produced It

This one is still being heavily researched. It is made by females and is thought in order to give off the current level of anxiety in the animal. It is also found to give detailed report of the reproductive phase that the animal is in. This is why males do not produce this chemical.
