Male Pheromones: What Are They?
Understanding what pheromones are is key to understanding how to use them to your best advantage. While many people understand their role in animals, they don’t understand that humans produce pheromones as well, and that these pheromones can produce many of the same effects as they do in other mammals. This is largely because of a natural bias to view our evolution as separating mankind from the animal kingdom, and because modern society has rendered natural pheromones less potent, inhibiting their effects.
What Are Pheromones?
Natural pheromones are chemicals produced by plants and animals to carry messages via smell. While some of these pheromones work cross-species, attracting specific insects or animals that are needed for survival, others work only within the same species, which is the case for human pheromones. This subconscious form of communication causes involuntary responses in our bodies that affect social interactions. These reactions are what make pheromones a valuable resource for networking, standing out at the office, and attracting members of the opposite sex.
Your Personal Chemistry
Your personal chemistry is constantly changing, and the changes in the mixture of your natural pheromones are what determines how potent your scent is to others. The pheromones human males do produce are:
This is possibly the most important of the male pheromones. While it is also produced in the adrenal glands and ovaries of women, it is far more prevalent in men, and is primarily responsible for making you register as more masculine and attractive to females. Especially during ovulation, women’s bodies are tuned-in to androstenone. While one of the most powerful pheromones, it does not operate on its own.
Widely regarded as a female pheromone, this natural pheromone is produced in lesser quantities by men. Men and women exposed to this chemical compound in one study published in Research Communications In Psychology, Psychiatry And Behavior showed an increased willingness to view people as warm-hearted and trustworthy under its influence. Both qualities that, in the right moderation, are important for personal and business
Androstenedione is a precursor to androstenone, but it’s also a natural pheromone in its own right. Balanced production and excretion can make women see you in a more positive light. It goes to work on the limbic system, which is the part of the brain that is involved with, among other things, emotional response. It is powerful enough to lower their perception of negative stimuli, such as pain. Overproduction, however, can put you at odds with other males nearby who tend to have a negative emotional reaction to its presence.
An Androstenol precursor, androstenediol is also found in varying concentrations in both men and women. Unlike other pheromones, some, but not all men respond to its stimulus. While one study showed you won’t get a negative reaction from heterosexual men, areas of the brain in both heterosexual women and homosexual men will be activated. These areas are responsible for hormonal production, desire, and a number of social impressions.
Healthy and balanced production of pheromones are what can be concluded to be an important part of your social interactions. It can make you more desirable to potential romantic partners, help you show off your confidence by improving others’ perceptions of you, and place you in a position of social respect. Since humans do produce pheromones and they are so vital to social standing, you may be wondering why you don’t hear more about it.
Natural Processes Vs Modern Cultures
Pheromones are what is behind our natural scent, but our natural, human scent is not what is generally en vogue in Western culture. Our self-care routines go beyond staying clean and applying a bit of perfume. It is not unheard of to inundate our bodies regularly with natural and artificial scents in a frightening array of themes and styles. Scented soaps, shampoos, conditioners, shaving creams, powders, lotions, and oils are used daily, all with a variety of ingredients and fragrances. Is it any wonder that our own pheromones struggle to do their job when we’re meeting with people face-to-face?
