Human Pheromones and WHR: Pure conjecture?

Posted on March 13, 2010 by jim.

A colleague has commented in discussion that sniffing out WHR is pure conjecture at this stage. Here’s my response:

What are you calling pure conjecture?

1. “The articles in this issue summarize the factors surrounding sex differences with respect to ontogeny, phenotype, and hormone-sensitive actions. They follow a sequence that begins with genetic sex differences and carries through to cell, tissue, organ and, finally, systemic effects…  — Naftollin, 1981

Obviously, the ontogenetic pathway to sex differences across phylogeny is gene-cell-tissue-organ-organ system. (That’s an animal model.)

2. “The interaction between sensory input and hormonal levels appears to be a general rule in endocrine relationships underlying behavior.” –LeMagnen 1982.

Obviously, the sensory link from the social environment to hormones and sex differences in behavior is the gene-cell-tissue-organ-organ system pathway. (That’s a summary of the data that fits the animal model).

By telling us that what’s obvious about this animal model is pure conjecture, you reveal that something has gone horribly wrong in the acquisition of information that led you to theorize (i.e., in other discussions on this topic)  that culture has anything whatsoever to do with the development of human preferences for visually perceived physical features. I don’t know what the problem could be, and you don’t seem to consider it a problem. I don’t think there’s any point to continuing to try and reach you with a model in your world of theory. On the other hand, I don’t think I should let you make unsubstantiated statements (above) like those that you continue to make.

Minimally, I acknowledge your evolutionary theory (ies), no matter how ridiculous they seem. I don’t know why you refuse to acknowledge biological facts — unless you simply cannot understand the difference between theories and facts.

James Kohl owns, 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.
