We secrete pheromones to attract people to us. It’s simple and a lot of people will say that it’s only found in animals and that humans don’t have pheromones. They claim that it is not that prolific in humans. But let’s just look at animals. Because we are mammals. Humans are animals. We’re primates. We are very similar to animals. We should not get it mixed up. So without further ado, I’m going to go over what a pheromone is, how animals use pheromones, and how similar it is the humans, especially mammals.
What Are Pheromones
So once again, a pheromone is secreted or excreted chemical factor that triggers a social response in members of the same species. Pheromones are chemicals capable of acting like hormones outside the body of the secreting individual to impact the behavior of the receiving individual. OK, there are alarm pheromone, trail, pheromones, sex, pheromones, and many others that affect others or physiology.
Pheromones are a chemical substance which is released into the environment in very tiny quantities. They are released by humans, animals, and of course, also insects. Pheromones that are released into the environment act to alter the behavior of other animals or insects of the same species and this applies to humans as well. In the animal kingdom, and especially among insects, pheromones play a crucial role in the mating process.
Many experts believe that this was true for humans as well and that it still is but to a lesser extent. Instead of us guys producing powerful pheromones to attract sexy women, we buy a Ferrari or some other fancy sports car. Seriously though, as humans, we still produce pheromones, but just not in large enough quantities. Learn more about the topic of human pheromones.
Today I want to talk to you about some research on pheromones. This work is really quite new and it is still happening as we speak so I am very excited about that. I did pheromones work with the Swedish University. My topic today is chemical ecology and conservation with the use of pheromones. We are going to talk about synthetic insect pheromones. This species happens to be abundant across Southern Sweden. I’m want to do more research on it.
Are pheromones real?
Yes, they are definitely real. Studies have shown that a lot of people, especially couples that get together are attracted to each other’s pheromones even though we can’t directly smell them on our partner. That’s what initially attracts us to the top pheromones experiments.
