What are Androsterone Pheromones
Once the only form of communication between animals,
pheromones are chemical messengers from one being
to another that affect the behavior of the receiver.
From amoebas to insects to mammals, all animals
have this ability. Detected in mammals through
the vomeronasal organ in the nose, these chemicals
vary and convey different messages. Some may tell
something about a readiness to mate, others serve
to define territory or announce aggression.
A whiff of pheromones from a female mouse, for
instance, will make a male mouse start mating
immediately. Pheromones from male mice produce
other changes like making him more aggressive.In
humans, the vomeronasal organ does not function
as well as in most mammals, and we have lost the
ability to consciously detect pheromones.
is, however, a body of scientific evidence that
we are subconsciously influenced by pheromones
and that to a degree, pheromones still dictate
much of human sexual interaction.Some of this
evidence comes from a study at the University
of Kentucky when researchers sprayed the male
pheromone, androsterone on pictures of men of
average sexual attractiveness.
When showed to women, it was discovered that
men in the androsterone-sprayed pictures were
rated as more attractive.Androsterone pheromone
can be bought in a concentrate form or mixed with
a fragrant cologne. A survey of 100 men who used
a popular brand of androsterone pheromone concentrate
reported the following:92% noticed an increase
in women making eye contact89% noticed more smiles
from women76% reported strange women starting
conversations with them81% reported being approached
by women they didn't know68% reported an increase
in dates and other forms of sociosexual contactAndrosterone
pheromone also seems to have an affect on other
men, making someone who has more seem more intimidating.
Many men have reported using the androsterone
pheromone in sports or business environments to
be noticed and gain respect.
