Your sweat or urine may contain sexy chemical compounds that might attract or repel potential bed partners when released into the air.
So of course there’s a company that this week unveiled its new artificial version of those compounds that includes the “pheromones” in spray-on fragrances designed primarily for men seeking women.
But while the company does imply you may have more success in bed with its new sexy product, a statement by the firm acknowledged the sex benefits alone are questionable, even though increased pheromone-driven self confidence may be a big sex benefit.
“While there are many pheromone companies out there, the jury is still out on whether humans use pheromones in sexual selection at all,” according to the company that’s selling “NuPhero” on the website indiegogo.com. “However, testing in the scientific community has shown in many cases that pheromones have an effect on people’s sense of self-worth, confidence, and emotional well-being.
“NuPhero uses those pheromones that have tested well in boosting confidence, relying on the current scientific evidence regarding pheromones to provide people with a pheromone product that has been shown through product testing to give the user a feeling of increased confidence. And with increased confidence comes a greater ability to interact with the opposite sex.”
The company said that pheromone use for human attraction has been debated for some time. “However, there hasn’t been much headway on what exactly these pheromones really do.”
Thus, the NuPhero firm “set out to see what had been learned so far by the scientific community and (it) pulled that research together into a product called NuPhero.
“NuPhero is a pheromone fragrance that relies on research from scientists around the globe to harness what is known about pheromones to help people balance their Pheromonal Index.”
The company said that androsterone, a pheromonal compound naturally produced among humans, “has so far tested well to decrease stress, increase sensations of confidence and elevate mood when inhaled. NuPhero’s process engineers recreate androsterone synthetically, coupling it with an aromatic fragrance.
“NuPhero tested the product on many different men, each with a similar experience of a feeling of increased confidence. NuPhero is a step forward for pheromone products, and the reliance on scientific research really sets it apart from many others on the market.”
