I have a couple of questions that can either be discussed or just answered about pheromones - female pheromones. I'm not sure what releases them or if they are even detectable by scent, but my most recent partner had this very strong smell that I could sense from about ten feet or more away, even in another room. I recently encountered someone who had an extremely similar scent to my recent partner's, and it made me go completely nuts.
Do people release such things consciously, or does it just happen without their knowledge? Was the scent that I was detecting pheromones, or was it just a bodily scent?
And a rather abstract question, can men that are XX sense pheromones from a woman who is XX, even though the man is not XY?
It's unconscious but ya I know what you mean. Sigel has a very light scent that makes me want to just sit and smell him. I hadn't ever met another guy who affected me this way until I met Arch in person. His scent drives me wild and I mean WILD. I've never been a very impulsive woman about sex but the minute I smelled that man I wanted to strip him down and ride him like the world was ending! Ihad all the classic reactions too; breathlessness, heart pounding, palms sweating ect. a rather new experience for me. I often wonder if it was love at first sight or sniff.
As Hyenagirl posted, scientists speculate that pheromones and our attraction or repulsion from them seems to indicate whether two people will be compatible fertility wise. In our case it seems to play out. It took over ten years to get pregnant for Sigel and I but only 3 times to get pregnant with Arch.
Body scent carries the pheromones so it's a bit of both, I've met people that when cleanly showered interested me but repulsed me when they were sweaty. This seems to be a part of what Hyenagirl also stated, these guys are too different in the MHC scale whereas both Sigel and Arch can be sweaty and I still wanna savagely sex them up!
Good question if I understand it correctly, I have no idea but I'd be interested to see if there has been any research in this area.
