Humans have a nose for gender: Chemical cues influence perceptions of movement as more masculine or feminine Empty Humans have a nose for gender: Chemical cues influence perceptions of movement as more masculine or feminine

e human body produces chemical cues that communicate gender to members of the opposite sex, according to researchers who report their findings in the Cell Press journal Current Biology on May 1. Whiffs of the active steroid ingredients (androstadienone in males and estratetraenol in females) influence our perceptions of movement as being either more masculine or more feminine. The effect, which occurs completely without awareness, depends on both our biological sex and our sexual orientations.

"Our findings argue for the existence of human sex pheromones," says Wen Zhou of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. "They show that the nose can sniff out gender from body secretions even when we don't think we smell anything on the conscious level."
Earlier studies showed that androstadienone, found in male semen and armpits, can promote positive mood in females as opposed to males. Estratetraenol, first identified in female urine, has similar effects on males. But it wasn't clear whether those chemicals were truly acting as sexual cues.

What does all this mean Didge? I mean I'm getting on a bit so should I be looking on the internet to buy something that may bump me up the pecking order a bit with the women because I can't continue just to get by on size alone.

So should I be buying androstadienone or estratetraenol? Let's face it making the wrong choice could have dramatic and unintended consequences.

Morning Irn,

I think or at least how I see it, shows even more we have no control over who we are attracted too, though already we know this because we cannot control who we are physically attracted to.
Just lift up your kilt buddy, is one to get the ladies going
