You’ve probably heard the scientific slang concerning “pheromones” and the sales pitches from marketers to get your full attention regarding the subject. You’ve probably seen them all over the media. You’ve heard the pros and cons from the scientific experts, the “doubting Thomas’s” and everyone in the middle of the discussion. Everyone seems so intent on proving this or that about pheromones, yet no one really answers one very basic question: Do pheromones really work?
And the Answer…
“How do we know this? Simple. Multiple studies in organisms ranging from insects to sheep to humans over the past 25 years. Pheromones work because nature designed them to attract healthy, fertile mating partners with whom to procreate. Think of pheromones as nature’s insurance policy that we’ll find sexual partners to spread our seed and ensure that life will always march forward.
What are pheromones?
They’re a chemical secretion that organisms emit to pass along their bio-chemical information, like their health, reproductive state, even their emotions. But pheromones are more than just a genetic seduction ploy. They also warn other organisms when the emitting party is sad or angry, whether it’s a honey bee, elephant or the guy sitting in the cubicle beside you.
You were probably unaware that pheromones even existed before they emerged in the public eye as a secret weapon for Don Juan’s the world over. That’s because they affect us on a subconscious level, bypassing the rational side of the brain, both for the emitter and the receiver.
Humans secrete pheromones from the apocrine glands, located in the armpits, genitals and navel. These glands secrete a clear liquid that encodes and transports our biological data. Humans decode this data with the olfactory system, an extension of the limbic system, the ancient part of our mammalian brain responsible for basic, instinctive behavior, including anger, fear and the urge to mate. Have you ever noticed that scent stimulates long-forgotten memories, more so than any other sense? This is the same principle in action.
What is particularly interesting is that women are much more receptive to pheromones than men. Studies have shown that women can detect scents at concentrations 1000 times lower than men.
There are several theories for this, but a prevailing idea is that the heightened sensitivity to pheromones in the female species is nature’s way of ensuring that women, who have historically had more at stake in choosing a sexual partner, are equipped to find the most suitable genes to carry.
