OK. So today I was listening to one of my favorite tunes – Bon Jovi – It’s my life – ….
…when I came across this article on wearing stinky shirts to sense the pheromones of another person.
I think this is a really interesting concept.
I particularly think that the following exerpt is really interesting:
Behavioral neuroscientist Charles J. Wysocki, told The Daily the idea is similar to his lab testing. ” Wysocki, of Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia, noted he would suggest participants go through a 10-day cleanse before the event, using no perfume or deodorant and also avoiding certain types of food that could alter signature scents.
“Attraction to pheromones seems to be how many animals do it,” he said. “Either way it’s a good indication that you’re off to a good start.”
Because I think this neuro guy is right. By wearing all kinds of deodorants and staying so clean we cover up our natural human pheromones. BUT it’s completely socially unacceptable to do anything different. You can’t exactly walk around reeking of BO all the time (at least I wouldn’t).
That’s why I think commercial ‘mones can work so freakin’ well to “break the ice” and cause attraction and popularity. It’s also why *I think* it’s worth it to put in the time practicing with different types of ‘mones. Cause everyone has unique body chemistry and there isn’t a one size fits all approach.
To your relationship success!
