A new study published in the May 2014 issue of Current Biology magazine explores the relationship of how sexual orientation influences the impact of pheromones in humans. The study was used to test whether two steroids qualified as sex pheromones; andostadienone and estratetreanol, respectively.
The participants were shown a presentation of a person walking while being exposed to either androstaidenone or estatetraenol to see if it influenced their attraction. Participants were not aware of the presence of pheromones. The gay males and straight female participants showed a positive reaction to the male pheromones but were indifferent to the female pheromones. Heterosexual male participants identified greater femininity when in contact with estratetraenol. Learn about pheromones in humans at http://pheromones-4u.com/pheromones-humans/.
According to the Dr. Wen Zhou, his study shows credible evidence that andistadienone and estratetraenol are identified as sex pheromones even though they are not sure how the scent transmit information about the opposite sex. Since the results varied among the test’s subjects’ sexual preference it is believed that pheromones play a role in sexual attraction. His research provides direct evidence that human steroids provide direct communication of of gender information related to sexual orientation.
Another study published in 2015 showed similar results when they measured how sexual stimulation was effected by the presence of sex pheromones. They discovered that men were aroused by the presence of female pheromones and vice versa.
The General Consensus
The general consenus among scientists is that pheromones transmit chemical signals about your mood and sexual preference. There is compelling eveidence that humans transmit chemical messages through olfaction. In one study published by Neruobiologist Noam Sobel, a neurobiologist from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Isreal, they have female participants watch a sad movie, and collected samples from their tears which were placed under the male’s nose. They recorded a marked decrease in the male’s testosterone levels which reduced sexual arousal.
In the past, studies concluded that men and women produced sex pheromones and new research has confirmed that pheromones do in fact influence our subconscious.
