Perfume Advertised as Containing Human Peromones can Only Attract Sows

Human sex pheromones have strong-smelling chemicals that catalyze mating. Insects have it, amphibians have it, and mammals have it, so how could we not?

Human pheromones keep suggesting that romance is in the air, but scientists who have been studying for decades have been unable to find the exact answer. Despite enormous efforts, there is tantalizing circumstantial evidence, although scientists have not been able to extract pheromones from the thousands of molecules in the human body. That doesn’t mean pheromones don’t exist, it just means that no one has yet discovered the exact chemical they have found in pigs, moths, and other animals.

A typical example is the female silk moth sexual pheromones, the first pheromone found in silk moths in 1959. The female silk moth sexual pheromones are an excellent example of the sexual needs of the moment. When a female moth is eager to mate, she simply releases a sexual pheromone at her favorite Romeo, and he flies over to mate with her. This is the performance of the gun. Most of the time, this applies to the vast majority of men.

Another pheromone is produced by a male boar; but interestingly, that’s in its saliva. These fluffy pigs just need to walk up to the sow in heat and exhale in her direction, and when the sow smells the pheromones, she turns around and raises her hips in front of the boar so she can It can ride. In the language of the wild boar, perhaps more generally, it means: “Let’s pass on the lineage.”

I shudder to think that if scientists did find a chemical with such potency in humans, I don’t know what the consequences would be. You can easily imagine what kind of bad things humans would do with such abilities.

Even if humans have evolved to produce such a sex pheromone in the past, its potency must have been diminished by competing urges today. We’ve grown into highly visual creatures: a lot of whether or not we’ll have sex with someone depends on our looks. And we also develop rationality and self-awareness when it comes to our sexual decisions. Although this can sometimes be a challenge, thanks to a variety of considerations including etiquette, social pressure, and scruples about legal consequences, human beings are able to exercise self-control when it comes to sexuality.

But even with these considerations, it is difficult to suppress its effectiveness when it comes to real pheromones. For example, it is common for farmers to use pig pheromones to facilitate artificial insemination, even if there are no boars around. When the sow in estrus smells this smell, she will take the initiative to lift her buttocks to receive insemination (some insemination workers will also learn how the boar rubs the hind legs of the sow, so that the sow can have more experience). This odor-behavior pattern association is programmed into the routine manipulation of the sow’s physiological responses, like breathing and pooping, they just follow neural commands.

This is the strict definition of pheromones. Scientists have engaged in a fascinating (but esoteric) semantic debate about what pheromones are made of; however, most agree that it is a chemical, or a mixture of chemicals , can consistently elicit the same response in other members of the same species. There’s nothing unique about pheromone-induced erotic attraction; it works the same for everyone.

So, even if humans have sex pheromones, it doesn’t and can’t be specific to someone and make them feel like you’re unique. This is in stark contrast to the use of the word “pheromones” in popular culture. In catchphrases you might see: “I can’t help but fall in love with him/her/them because of his/her/their pheromones.” And under strict scientific definitions, true sex pheromones do Makes someone irresistible to that attraction…but basically works on all members of the opposite sex.

Based on the above observations, sex pheromones are the molecules that motivate members of a species to behave like sex machines, so the subtle evidence that humans use body odor to learn about each other, and even develop preferences, is incompatible with this strict Concepts differ. Many scientists working in the field have never used the term “sex pheromones” when talking about their findings. Scientists who have studied human chemical transmission for decades have also avoided using the term to refer to it, instead using “human chemical cues” or “chemical signals” or “social chemical signals”. Because whatever information escapes from our body into the air and into our nose may influence our decision-making, but it cannot be summed up in one word.

“The problem we have right now is that we all agree that there is something in humans, but we don’t know how to refer to it.”

John at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm. “The good thing about the term pheromone is that people know what you’re talking about,” says Johan Lundstrom. “If you stop someone on the road, they’ve heard of pheromone. But it’s already used in business.” Totally abused. And when the general public hears this word, they generally think of sexual intercourse. In fact, in other animals, pheromones have little to do with mating; they can help with mating, or provide some information, hint , but they don’t trigger sexual excitement. The word pheromone has been tainted by sex.” When you know what pheromones actually do, it’s hard to use it to explain what we’re seeing, happening in humans Case.
There’s another chemistry problem here, and scientists haven’t been able to identify the molecules that are important in human social interaction. In the case of silk moths, scientists clearly know that it is the female silk moth sex pheromones; in pigs, two molecules are known—androstenone and androstenol. These are considered orthodox pheromones because scientists did measure them in these animals and did find their effect on animal sexual behavior.

However, in many experiments on humans, it is clear that there is something or something (that is, a chemical) floating on the person and can be sniffed out by other people, but it has not been possible to find out what these chemicals are. There are hundreds of molecules in our sweat, as well as other bodily fluids like tears and earwax, that may be signaling something. Although many researchers have been trying, no one has found a molecule from these body fluids that can convince everyone: “There is no doubt that this is the human pheromones”.

That’s not to say there aren’t some noteworthy studies out there.

Pig pheromones androstenone and androstenol, for example, are often found in human sweat, so scientists are trying to see if they can similarly alter mood or nerves in other humans. But through brain scans and questionnaires, only minimal changes were found, and effects were only seen when human subjects smelled very high doses of concentrated molecules, orders of magnitude higher than those found in normal sweat. .

Of course, the sellers who sell human pheromone dragon water on the Internet are talking about something else. Products containing the pheromone androstenone all claim that they can help a man seduce an unsuspecting woman. The problem is that most of these products only appeal to high-sex sows, not high-sex women.

Much of the research on human pheromones over the past few decades has been fruitless, otherwise attempts have been made to sell products with unproven efficacy under that name. Still, many researchers in the field are optimistic that human pheromones will one day be discovered. Tristram, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Oxford, who has done extensive research on pheromones. Wyatt (Tristram Wyatt) said that the strongest period of human body odor is still only in adolescence; this more or less indicates that humans must somehow use smell to achieve the purpose of sexual intercourse.

“Whether it’s innate or acquired, I believe we do have certain human interactions and convey certain messages through body odor,” said Landstrong. “Pheromones or not, it’s just a name, an actual connotation. It’s the same. I think body odor is a complex composition of many compounds that can convey a lot of information, including whether you’re sick, your age and gender.”

Since these body odors are mainly emitted from the armpit, many researchers continue to focus on that area. Plety once said: “When was the last time you had a man smell your butt? We are standing creatures, and our armpits are very close to our noses. That’s why most researchers who investigate human pheromones pay attention to armpit.”
