Fatal attractions: a fear of pheromones

Posted on November 29, 2012 by James Kohl.

In Nature, Fatal Attractions Can Be Part of Life

Excerpt: Why, for example, would a fur seal try to mate not just with a different species but with an entirely different class of animal?

My answer: That’s obviously an olfactory/pheromonal mistake! The other mate has no visual appeal, but something has gone wrong because it smells right.

In Nature, this article was published in 1996. Insect pheromone in elephants

A decade later, Insect pheromones and precursors in female African elephant urine, suggested that “…findings may yield valuable insights into chemical communication among African elephants.”

In 2012, it was no longer clear that the initial findings on insect (1996) to elephant (2006) pheromones had yielded valuable insights because the pheromones in elephants are now called chemical signals or semiochemicals, as they often are called in discussion of other mammals.

What’s in a name?

Lewis Thomas suggested in 1971 that we have a A Fear of Pheromones. And in 1980, he wrote:

I should think we might fairly guage the future of biological science, centuries ahead by estimating the time it will take to reach a complete comprehensive understanding of odor. It may not seem a profound enough problem to dominate all the life sciences, but it contains, piece by piece, all the mysteries.

In 1995 I co-authored The Scent of Eros: Mysteries of Odor in Human Sexuality, the first book written about human pheromones (now in paperback, since 2002, and ebook since 2012).

If we continue to allow the human pheromone-deniers to deny that pheromones control reproduction in all species from microbes to man, their fear of pheromones will prevent us from understanding the fact that “Olfaction and odor receptors provide a clear evolutionary trail that can be followed from unicellular organisms to insects to humans.“And we can blame the fearful human pheromone-deniers for our inability to understand the development of our preferences for the physical features of others, whether or not our attractions are fatal or perfectly suited to the enhancement of life on this planet. The fear of pheromones is denial of reality.

James Kohl owns Pheromones.com, and he has published books and award-winning research journal articles about human pheromones. With colleagues he was the first to show that a mixture of human pheromones increases the flirtatious behaviors of women, and increases their level of attraction to the man wearing the mixture - during a real-life social circumstance lasting 15 minutes.

What is the vomeronasal organ (VNO)?

The vomeronasal organ (VNO) is a cone-shaped organ in the nasal cavity, which is believed to be one of the body's receptors of pheromones. More, specifically, the VNO, which is part of the accessory olfactory system in the nose, does not respond to normal scents, but may detect odorless, barely perceptible pheromones.

Other schools of thought believe that it is not the VNO but rather cells in our main olfactory system and their affects on hormones secreted by the hypothalamus that are responsible for the affects of pheromones.

What are optimized pheromones?

Optimized pheromones are lab-certified pheromone formulations that have the optimum concentration of biologically active pheromones scientifically proven to produce behavior-altering results -- particularly as sexual attractants. Optimized pheromone formulations do not necessarily contain the maximum level of pheromones available on the market, but rather contain the greatest degree (and combination)of human pheromones that trigger a conditioned biological response in humans that, in turn, dictate their sexual behavior. Optimized pheromones also release neurotransmitters that directly modify the behavior of the opposite sex, such as triggering sexual excitement. For example:

Optimized pheromones for men are scientifically proven to bring about an increase in the luteinizing hormone (LH) in women, thereby causing a woman to have a heightened sexual responsiveness to a man. This LH surge elevates a woman's predisposition towards sexual activity.

Optimized pheromones for women are scientifically proven to bring about a biochemical surge in men, thereby causing a man to have a heightened sexual responsiveness to a woman. This biochemical surge is what makes a man fiercely determined to copulate.
