Letter from the Prez:
Hello Readers,

The kids, wife and I are in Nevada again on our way back to LA after a very enjoyable visit to love-scent.com headquarters in the beautiful Western Colorado mountains. During the trip we spent several days with the well-known pheromone researcher James Kohl, author of my favorite book on the subject, The Scent of Eros. Among many other things, James mentioned that he is currently in the process of updating the book for future rerelease.

Pheromone News editor, Dale Andrews informs me that he had a very interesting phone interview with James recently, the results of which are scheduled to appear in our September issue of the News. So, don’t miss it!
And of course….
Don’t forget to smile at someone today!

We had exactly 200 responses to July’s survey question. This month’s winners are:

Wanda, Joseph, Sharon and “HollywoodD”

SURVEY RESULTS

In July, we asked readers to tell us about the scents they find sexually arousing. The responses were very informative and highlighted two points. First, males and females may both have noses, but each gender has a very different sense of smell. Second, there are certain scents the majority of people find stimulating (a lot of men and women both like musk), but every individual’s social conditioning also plays a part. For instance, a grown woman may catch wind of a certain scent (it could be anything) that makes her recall her first crush, and become aroused because of that memory.

Editor’s note: In July, we added a new person to the Pheromone News team. Matt Boyer (our Forum members will certainly recognize the name) is now handling the task of sorting through the monthly survey responses and picking the replies we reprint in each newsletter. Welcome, Matt! 😉

SELECTED HIGHLIGHTS

Which scent(s) do you find sexually arousing?

Males:
– Ever since I was younger I have always loved the smell of girls hair, something to do with their shampoo. That makes me aroused – a big sniff of sweet smelling hair.
– If I had to choose a particular class of scent, it would be that “sun tan lotion” smell. I love that vanilla/coconut/tropical scent. Perhaps it reminds me of my first memorable sun bathing experience, next to a beautiful girl, as a teen.
– Juicy Fruit gum and cheap perfume in combination. Reminds me of high school cheerleaders and rampant hormones.
– The scents that I find the most arousing are all nature-based: vanilla, sandalwood, cedar, and, sometimes, a woman’s sweat, especially if after a workout.
– I find the smell of pumpkin pie kind of arousing.

Females:
– My husband, who passed away 5 months ago, had a special body scent all his own. He smelled like a clean cotton shirt, freshly laundered and dried in the sun, plus a certain warm, musky, male scent that was clean but slightly salty. He wore several fragrances that enhanced it. After his death, I much regretted the fact that I had done laundry right before he died.
– I learnt a lot from Arabic people and from my travels in Asia. Some oils in certain combinations work just like pheromones, men love it when women wear a citrus, jasmine and musk combination and women seem to respond well to men who wear a patchouli, amber and khus combination.
– The smell of a man cooking in the kitchen….it could be anything.
– I can be very stimulated by a man’s cologne. He may be someone just walking by, but if his cologne smells really nice, it just makes me tingle all over.
– Musk! Definitely. A sweet but mellow appeal. I love the fragrance on others as well as myself.
– I would have to say there are two scents that really turn me on. First and foremost, the smell of my boyfriend’s skin. Also, the smell of certain cigarettes smells very attractive to me. Maybe I associate it with sex although I personally don’t smoke.
– What is more sexually arousing than when a man smells like fresh laundry? As dumb as it sounds, it overpowers every cologne and aftershave that I know of.
– My favorite scent is pumpkin pie! Makes me want to hop into bed!!!

Scents (General):

pheromone Q & A

Q: I’ve got my Edge now, thanks for being so fast. How long will the Edge stay fresh in the bottle? I mean, is there ever a point where you need to buy a new bottle even if you have some left? If so, how long?

A: I would think at least two or three years if you keep it in a tightly sealed bottle away from direct sunlight. However, there is no hard data of which I’m aware. The longest I have personally kept a bottle is about two years. It is a bottle of the original Primal Instinct and I still use it regularly. It still has the same fragrance and it seems to work the same. I have heard from at least a few customers who left a bottle of some product on their car dashboard, and are convinced the product became worthless afterward. A final thought – oil based products like Primal Instinct may hold up longer than alcohol based products, but with any product you can still expect it to last years, not months.

Good luck and don’t forget to smile!

All the Best,
Bruce

FEATURE ARTICLE

PREMENSTRUAL SYNDROME COULD SOON BE TREATED WITH pheromones

One day soon, women suffering from premenstrual syndrome (PMS) might be finding instant relief in a pheromone nasal spray.

The company developing the spray is Pherin Pharmaceuticals, of Mountain View, California. One of Pherin’s founders is David Berliner, who was previously associated with the development of the popular Realm line of pheromone-laced colognes.

Pherin claims the new treatment will free women from irritability, depression and other symptoms of PMS, and also the more severe premenstrual dysphoric order (PMDD). According to a July 18 report published in New Scientist, Pherin conducted tests on 20 women that show the spray can ease both mood disorders and physical symptoms like breast pain.

PMS is a condition most researchers agree is triggered by fluctuating hormones affecting brain function. Doctors usually prescribe mood-altering drugs like Prozac.

Human pheromones are powerful mediators of sexual attraction, anxiety and hormone-related disorders, says Berliner in the New Scientist report.

For decades, the research community has debated whether human pheromones even exist. However, Berliner and other pheromone researchers have shown through studies that certain pheromones can play a part in human sexual behavior, and that others can induce calmness in the opposite sex. pheromones are detected by a separate organ in the nose called the vomeronasal organ, or VNO.

To treat PMS, Pherin has developed a pheromone-like compound or “vomeropherin” called PH80. When women inhale the compound, PH80 binds to receptors in the VNO and a message is sent to the hypothalamus, which is involved in the central nervous system and the endocrine system. In other words, the vomeropherin has a direct line to the brain and it means the relief is immediate.

Functional MRI scans have already shown that PH80 does in fact target a region of the hypothalamus thought to affect PMS. Pherin is now setting up full clinical trials of the new spray.

User Corner

Some of the effects I have had:
– Deer in headlights look a number of times, where I would be talking to a girl and she would stare hypnotized at me for the whole time, and yet manage to have a coherent conversation. This same girl started talking to me about sex on the second conversation.
– I was at a house party in the kitchen and there were four people in the room including me, I was chatting to this chap. Then I decided to pop out. I had moved one step towards the door, when the two girls (who I didn’t know) in the corner about 5 feet away both instantly turned and called out to me to stay, in unison, with broad smiles on their faces.
– Perhaps the best effect of all is that because I now know beyond doubt that many many girls find me very attractive, I have the confidence to initiate conversations, ask for email addresses and telephone numbers, kiss, and so on.

Letter from the Prez
Hello Everyone,

Leaving for the US in two days and only 14 million things that need to be done first, so we are not doing too badly, I guess. Making the ten hour flight across the vast Pacific with 2 small kids in tow, my wife and I are placing bets on how many times we will hear the words: “Are we there yet?” After we arrive in LA our plans are clear though: drive to Love Scent pheromone Store headquarters in Western Colorado, stopping anyplace with the words “….land” or “Canyon” in it.

Along the way, we will be making one very important stop in Las Vegas, though. Not to play the slot machines (the only game I can figure out), but to meet with internationally known pheromone expert and author James Kohl. His definitive book on the subject “the Scent of Eros” is unfortunately out of print at the moment, but there is a used copy at amazon.com. Somebody should snap that one up.

The names of seven survey winners are listed in this issue, so be sure to give it a read. You might be one of them! Special thanks to David Pullin for sharing his research results with us, and of course…..

Don’t forget to smile at someone today!

SURVEY RESULTS

In June, we asked readers if they believe in the idea of soul mates. Once the results were counted, over 75 per cent of males and 89 per cent of females said they do believe in soul mates.

However, almost every respondent defined the term “soul mate” in a different way. For some readers, a soul mate is simply another person with whom we have an incredible connection – in other words, your soul mates would be your best friends, and one special soul mate would be your lover or marriage partner. Others see their soul mate in a strictly romantic light. Some believe their soul mate will be a perfectly compatible mate who sees the world from the same eyes and who doesn’t possess any annoying habits. A smaller percentage also said they thought being with a soul mate would somehow transform the lives of both partners. These readers used terms like “a feeling of home,” or wrote about feeling “complete” once their soul mate enters their life.

Despite the different definitions of the term, one thing is apparent – most respondents have a strong romantic side! One reader, David S., even related a fable that cautions us to never let our soul mate slip through our fingers:

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
*Once, back in ancient times, there was a young man searching for knowledge. He traveled the world asking wise men and seers, and finally one told him of a beach where there was a special stone. If he held that stone he would possess true knowledge. He searched and eventually found this beach, but there were millions of stones. How would he find the right one? He decided to start at one edge and pick up each stone in front of him, and if he didn’t sense it contained the power of knowledge, he would toss it behind him, into the sea, and continue picking up stones.

*For days he followed this plan, and for days his quest remained futile. As he approached the end of the beach, suddenly he felt the power of knowledge. But before he could think, he had thrown the magic stone back over his shoulder from utter force of habit, and the tides of the sea swept it away forever. It was lost!

*The moral of this story is: If you are determined to find your soul mate, don’t throw him or her away from you by force of habit, when and if you do find this special person. You may never get another chance.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

SELECTED HIGHLIGHTS

1. Do you believe in the idea of soul mates? Why or why not?

Males:
– I think that there are – because I have witnessed a meeting of soul mates. I was in a coffee shop one evening. A guy walks in, orders, goes up to pay and just stops cold, totally fixed on the cashier. The two stood there and stared at each other, grinning like crazy, for almost a whole minute before one of the cashier’s co-workers nudged her back into consciousness. I was in that same coffee shop eleven months later, looked down at the same cashier’s hand, and noticed a wedding ring on it. While I was finishing my drink, the same guy comes in, gives her a kiss, and the two leave.
– No, if you define a soul mate as the one and only person for you. I have had too many friends who thought they found their soul mate, only to have dumped them a month or two later. How in the world could you ever find that person with all of the millions of people in the world?
– I think soul mates are a romantic notion that may have some validity. Whether they exist or not depends really on the belief of reincarnation. Einstein theorized that energy can neither be created nor destroyed. Thus, the energy of the soul (the aura) and the energy created by the mind have to go someplace. It’s the exasperating question of who we are, what we are, and where we ultimately come from, and then, what happens when we die?

Females:
– I do believe in soul mates. I believe that old saying that there is someone out there for everyone. Someone to share your wants and needs, your good times and bad times. I also believe that a soul mate can be any gender, meaning a soul mate for a woman can also be another woman as a dear friend.
– Yes. However, I do not think people always recognize them when they are right in front of them! I believe you have to be open to all of that person, not just looks, which are instantaneous. When you see someone of the opposite sex, and are instantly taken away, it’s often more of a mutual “I want you now” thing. A soul mate takes time. It’s not just based on looks and sexual appeal.
– The saying “soul mates” is going to throw a lot of people off. I consider it just another way of naming your “one true love.” And is there one true love for me? NO. There are many true loves. If there was only one true love for each one of us – in the sea of the BILLIONS of people on this earth – most of us would be single or marrying someone with whom we are not in love. The term “soul mates” should be reserved for Hollywood. If the majority of your readers respond that they do believe in soul mates, I will be disappointed by the masses’ fanciful childishness.

2. Do you think you have a soul mate (even if you haven’t found him or her yet)?

Males:
– Yes, because from the girls I have dated, I have better calibrated what I really want in a girl and should be able to find “her” soon.
– Yes, possibly several. It’s hard to know how many as I don’t know how many past lives I’ve had.

Females:
– God help me, I DO believe I have a soul mate, and while I love my husband dearly and have a relatively stable marriage of several years, I’m not so sure that he’s my soul mate. – Yes, I believe I have a soul mate although I have not found him yet. Though at this point in time, I am not looking for him either.

3. If you answered ‘yes’ to Question One, how do you know when you’ve found your soul mate?

Males:
– When the world begins to make sense.
– Because everything is just about perfect about her. She is funny, witty, intelligent. And, believe me that is asking something from a female these days. Oh yes, she is also beautiful, at least she is to me! PS. Just because she works with me doesn’t mean that I’m not in the market for some of your love potion. It means that she hasn’t as yet returned my affections. But I’m hoping that she will in the next few weeks, with the help of pheromone treatment.
– When you both feel an incredible connection with each other. Almost a magnetic sense of being drawn to this other person, that grows and grows with each minute you’re together.

Females:
– I believe I have found mine. You just know. You BOTH know. For us, it just snuck up on us. We weren’t “looking” for someone. We just became such great friends— even from the very first day and it only got better. Then, it kinda dawned on us at the same time, that we seemed to be ‘meant for each other.’
– There’s an instant bond…when you can feel that it’s the right person for you, it is meant to be. There’s a closeness and feeling of one-ness. You just know. I found my soul mate 7 years ago, and to this day I know that he is the man that God intended for me to love…forever! Our love grows deeper every minute!
==========================================

pheromone Q & A

Q: I bought PA and mixed it with my cologne. I sprayed it on and went to work just to see what would happen, and you know what? Nothing. Nothing at all. What am I doing wrong? Why isn’t it working? No smiles, no flirtatious looks, nothing. Why?

A: First of all, pheromones don’t make women act irrationally. That is an exaggeration you sometimes find on certain pheromone sites. But, what you do get is well worth the time and money it takes to get the hang of using pheromone products.

It takes a while to find the right amount and proper application spots to match your own natural pheromones. Also, it can be a little tough changing the minds of women that have you strongly pegged, so work is not always the best place to gain confidence in pheromones – though it can happen anywhere.

Though the effects are immediate, you are always working the odds and rolling the dice. The pheromones just slant those odds more in your direction. You need to roll those dice a few dozen times and keep your eyes open to see the difference.

Lastly, the only thing you could be doing “wrong” is looking grumpy. I call it the “Clint Eastwood Effect” (CEE). If you tend to be the lone wolf type, depressed or grumpy looking, I am convinced pheromones can actually make it harder for women to get near you.

There are many types of women in the world, and many types of guys they are subconsciously programmed to go after. The best thing to do is attract the kind of woman that is going after a healthy relationship with a healthy guy (mentally, spiritually and physically healthy). The way to do that is to BE THAT KIND OF GUY. While you are on your own and “still looking” you have the greatest opportunity to change yourself and be the kind of person you want to be.

Good luck and don’t forget to smile!

All the Best,
Bruce

SKEPTICAL RESEARCHER PROVES pheromone USERS HAVE THE ATTRACTION ADVANTAGE

As a psychology student, David Pullin was more than a little skeptical about the idea of humans being affected by pheromones.

Still, the Derby University (UK) Honors student knew that in the animal and insect worlds, pheromones are a crucial form of communication and play a decisive role in sexual attraction. Pullin had also seen magazine ads and Web sites claiming that pheromones, which are available in commercial products, are important in human attraction as well.

“I was skeptical, but interested,” says Pullin, explaining why he chose to study human pheromones for a major research project.

Pullin presented his idea to an equally skeptical advisor and then began six months of research. His project included a review of the research to date, and his own experiment in which 20 female participants rated male photographs for attractiveness after inhaling either a commercially available pheromone product, or a control substance.

MORE ATTRACTIVE
“My results clearly suggest that pheromones play a role in attraction between the sexes,” says Pullin, who presented his research paper in April.

“Attraction rates were significantly higher when females were exposed to pheromones.”

Pullin used a product containing androstenone and androstenol in an ethanol base. He then had the females inhale either the pheromone product, or an alcohol control substance (vodka). The subjects were divided into two groups – one group viewed photographs after sniffing the pheromones, while the other group was exposed to the control substance. The next day they were switched, and the second group was exposed to the pheromones while the first group received the control substance.

The female subjects were asked to rate the photos from a scale of one (not attractive) to five (extremely attractive). Pullin’s experiment revealed a significant difference between attractiveness ratings when women were exposed to pheromones.

The mean attractiveness ratings (MAR) tell the full story:

Group 1 – pheromone Condition Control Substance
31.2 MAR 27.3 MAR

Group 2 – pheromone Condition Control Substance
34.3 MAR 30.5 MAR

“To me, this shows that pheromones do have an effect. I could see pheromones as being a real possible alternative to traditional therapies, such as maybe hormone replacement,” says Pullin.

“Certainly, there should be more research done in this area,” he adds.

Interest
Pullin’s experiment was the first of its kind in his department, and his university.

“It stimulated a bit of interest, because it was totally unique at this university,” he explains.

The student volunteers, he adds, were also interested to know more about pheromones after learning of the experiment’s details. Of course, that level of general interest is to be expected when dealing with the subject of sexual attraction.

“I think pheromones have been with us since Day One,” says Pullin.

“You could call them the unspoken language of love.”

THE JULY SURVEY:

What is your nose telling you? For most people, our sense of smell can trigger powerful emotions or even make us recall certain memories. Of course, the perfume industry has been built on the idea that certain scents can enhance our attractiveness to the opposite sex.

While some scents are universal (almost everyone is repelled by the smell of skunk) there are other scents we respond to in a more personal way. One female acquaintance of the editor’s even admitted that the scent of WD40 (a household oil spray) is sexually stimulating to her.

THIS MONTH’S QUESTION:
Which scent(s) do you find sexually arousing?

User Corner

The other night, I was in a hurry to get to work and quickly threw on a few drops of Primal Instinct, massaged them into my hair. Then, on the way to work I stopped to get coffee at the convenience store. On the way out these two hot, teenage girls coming into the store both looked at me and smiled really big, like I was some kind of candy they wanted to eat. This NEVER happens to me, especially considering I’m in my forties! Then, at work, my secretary was flirting. She is very cute, but has always been distant in the few weeks she worked with me. So I think there is something to these pheromones!

SURVEY RESULTS
In May, we asked readers to tell us whether they need to share certain similarities with a potential partner or mate. We also listed seven characteristics – everything from religion to physical appearance – and asked people to rank their importance when it comes to mate selection.

While by no means scientific, the survey did reveal that most people want to have at least a few things in common with their partner. However, it should come as no surprise that men and women look at things differently. Men, for example, told us that a woman’s physical attractiveness was more important than her level of education. Many women, while still placing a good deal of importance on physical attractiveness, also gave more thought to a man’s education or values.

However, statistics can sometimes tell only part of the story. In certain categories (especially culture/nationality, socio-economic status, and religion), the majority of people rated the characteristic as lower in importance, but a smaller number who rated the characteristic as very high in importance affected the average. In other words, when it comes to something like nationality or religion, it either matters very little or it matters a lot.

THE RESPONSES

How important are the following characteristics when it comes to selecting a long-term partner (please rank from 1-10, with 10 being most important):

*Culture or nationality: Males–5.6; females–5.5
*Physical attractiveness: Males–7.6; females–6.8
*Socio-economic status (i.e. wealth or social standing): Males–4.7; females–5.9
*Religion: Males–5.5; females–5.2
*General level of education: Males–6.0; females–7.25
*Values: Males–7.4; females–9.1
*Geographic location (i.e. raised in the same area): Males–4.4; females–4.6

SELECTED HIGHLIGHTS

When it comes to selecting a long-term romantic partner, do you look for certain similarities? Which ones?

Males:
– There’s got to be some physical attractiveness, but it’s not high on my list. I prefer someone with common interests. For example I like scary movies and find some crude humor funny…(and) if she wants to walk out of the theater during the zipper scene of “There’s Something About Mary,” that’s a little too prudish. If she wants to stick around through “Freddie Got Fingered,” maybe I’m too prudish for her.
– I look for someone who is educated enough that when we are done fooling around we have something to talk about.
– Certainly I’m interested in the physical aspects…but beyond that, there must be more depth to the person. For some, it’s intelligence, personality, etc., but for me it’s simply ‘connecting’ with her.
– Why would I want someone like ME? I want someone different! Someone to spice up my life!
– Similarities in “pace” of life – fast paced, go getter, or laid back (my preference is to smell the roses – ALL of them). Similarities in style – Versace vs. LLBean,(women in flannel shirts impress me more than Maybelline Queens) and similar appreciation of people and nature. They say opposites attract, sure, but likes tend to STAY together longer.

Females:
– Similar interests, and sense of adventure. I need to be able to talk about things and have my partner relate and understand (and vice-versa). Also have someone willing to try new things with me.
– I don’t look for similar things in a partner. I go first for appearance, then look to see if they have a mellow personality.
– They don’t necessarily have to be the best looking person, just as long as I am attracted to them. Long term, the looks go, but the personality stays.
– We have to be able to connect verbally, if our relationship is to last any length of time. Sex can be really awesome with someone, but if we aren’t able to talk on a deeper level, after the sex, it probably won’t last too long.
– I tend to look for flakes like myself, that is, men who are capable of thinking outside the box, and who are secure in themselves in that they dare to stand out from the rest (physically, being at least 6 feet is a prerequisite too).
– Religion and social status have nothing to do with how I love someone or how I want someone to love me. Similar values in family and work and relationships, someone similar in their outlook on life, and (who) knows when to be serious and when to have fun!
==========================================

pheromone Q & A

Q: I have been using Pheromol Factor for women for about three weeks now, and have tried doses ranging from one drop to splashing on (as a man would with aftershave). I’ve tried using it in different spots, putting it on my skin sometimes and clothes other times. I have not noticed any different reactions from people. Is it possible that PF may not work for some people? What do you suggest?

A: It is true that due to varying body chemistries, different products work for different people. Although we don’t know exactly what is in Pheromol Factor, it is probably the one best stand-alone product. It probably doesn’t get the biggest miracle stories, but it seems to fail the least.

Aside from this, you need to make sure you’re affecting people with more than your pheromone signals. For both men and women, it is always important to radiate a sense of having a “good direction.” For better or worse, most people you run into are looking for the BBD (bigger, better deal), someone who is going to cheer them up and help them get on with their life.

If your life is on track and you are feeling good about yourself, you will send out a signal that will cause others to want to get to know you. That’s why a sense of humor is so valuable. It shows you have a certain mastery over your feelings and those of others around you.

All the Best,
Bruce

FEATURE ARTICLE

BITTEN BY THE “pheromone BUG” –
STUDENT RESEARCH LED TO CAREER IN MANUFACTURING pheromone productS

Last month, pheromone Research News interviewed Phil Stone of Stone Independent Laboratories, a supplier of pheromone products. This article is part two in the series.

————————-

Scientific research isn’t a glamorous field. In fact, most research – whether it involves new plant hybrids or revolutionary cancer-fighting drugs – is the result of long hours of lab work and just one “Eureka” moment.

Of course, Eureka moments can come in different shapes and forms. Some can even involve bees.

As a freshman student in an Organic Chemistry class, Phil Stone and 25 other students were instructed to synthesize a bee pheromone. Stone says the routine experiment was an epiphany for him, and one of the reasons he chose a less-than-conventional career path.

“It was like that scene from the Amityville Horror with the flies covering the window – in our case, there were literally three or four hundred bees on the lab window. And inside, there were 26 students making bee pheromones.”

“I had no idea, until seeing those bees, that chemistry had that kind of power – in this case it was with insects, but since then we’ve seen a lot of evidence of the importance of pheromones in mammals and in humans,” says Stone.

Stone went on to complete a degree in Polymer Chemistry and did post-graduate work on time-release medications for tuberculosis. However, in his own words, he was “bit by the pheromone bug.” He founded Stone Independent Laboratories, which manufactures a range of pheromone products for use by humans.

pheromones are chemical compounds that are produced naturally by insects and animals. They are an especially vital means of communication among insects – moths, for example, can be attracted over great distances by pheromones emitted from the female of the species. Today, synthetically reproduced insect pheromones are widely used by the bug control industry.

In the world of mammals, some species will immediately adopt a mating stance with just a whiff of a certain pheromone. Yet, there has always been a degree of controversy in scientific circles over the role pheromones play in human behavior and interaction. The research published to date has, however, shown that pheromones like androstenone and androstenol – which affect the Vomeronasal organ in the nose – do have some measurable effect on human interaction and mate selection.

“It’s definitely a new area, or maybe a new frontier,” says Stone. He adds that research on human pheromones is sometimes more difficult to get published because “you’re dealing with an area that’s not generally accepted.”

Among the general public, the common attitude seems to be one of ignorance. Many people simply have no idea of the role that pheromones play – whether in insects, animals or humans.

“It’s sometimes a challenge trying to explain to people what I do. In fact, the standard reply is, “What?” A lot of people have no idea what I’m even talking about,” says Stone.

Other people may have seen sexually suggestive marketing materials that claim human pheromone products will turn anyone into an “irresistible sex magnet.” Those inflated advertising claims can sometimes affect attitudes in a negative way.

“It’s frustrating to see these products targeted on a purely sexual standpoint. It turns a lot of people off. Over half of the people buying our products are professionals or business people who just want an edge in their daily business activities,” notes Stone.

The stories that Stone hears from customers are enough to suggest that pheromone users are finding that edge.

“Honest to God, you wouldn’t believe some of the stories I hear. Almost every week, I’ll get one that I just have to post on the bulletin board, but they’re stories I can’t really use as testimonials because most people just wouldn’t believe them,” he says.

On the other hand, he admits that it’s also personally gratifying to know – first hand – what the products are doing for people.

“Years ago in school, we always had these ideals about how our research would help people. But of course, to bring a new medical drug to the market is a very long and detailed process, and you never really get to see the end of it. You never get to see the people you’re helping,” says Stone.

“So from that standpoint, it’s a lot of fun to be able to see a direct result, especially for somebody who loves immediate gratification.”

Survey/Contest time!

THE JUNE SURVEY:

Throughout history, the idea of the soul mate has been firmly fixed as an important belief in many (but not all) cultures. Today, even with soaring divorce rates and an entertainment industry that glorifies sex, the idea of soul mates is ever-present – in everything from church weddings to Meg Ryan movies.

What, then, is a soul mate? Is there really such a thing and, if so, how do you find and recognize this special person?

————————-

This month, we’re asking the following questions:

1. Do you believe in the idea of soul mates? Why or why not?

2. Do you think you have a soul mate (even if you haven’t found him or her yet)?

3. If you answered ‘yes’ to Question One, how do you know when you’ve found your soul mate?

User Corner

Last Friday night, I went to my usual after work hangout for happy hour. I sat at the bar. A female that I sort of knew, came in and sat next to me. I had talked to this girl before, she had been friendly, but that’s about it. She had told me that since this is a small community, that she could not ever make any type of PDA (public display of affection). Well after about a half hour, she was rubbing my arms, neck and back, smiling incessantly, it was like she had melted. About an hour later a guy I know came in with a girl, his first “date” with her. They sat at a table about 3 feet behind me. She was a really cute blonde, wearing a black miniskirt. Even though I was still sitting with the girl who was rubbing all over me by now, this blonde comes over and starts talking to me/us. In a little while, this one was all over me too. The recipe? 2 sprays of The Edge on the chest, Alter Ego on the wrists. Designer cologne. And yeah, I’d say it was a hit…or two.

Letter from the prez…

Hello Readers,

Thanks for all the great feedback this past month. I’m sure Dale, our new editor will put it to good use. I even got a few corrections from Canadians and Australians about the proper spelling of the word “eh?” I’ll be more careful… eh? I don’t think anyone mentioned the fact that Pher News has historically been late every month, but under Dale’s new directorship, we are looking at the second issue in a row coming out more or less on schedule. Wow!

Congrats also go to our two “free pheros” winners for the month. Douglas and Karen can pick a bottle of something from love-scent.com. They will get an e-mail confirmation shortly about that. Don’t forget to send in a survey yourself this month (see below). You just might win something. The odds are quite good.
And as always….

Don’t forget to smile at someone today!

SURVEY RESULTS
Last month, we asked readers to share their opinions about this newsletter. We received a large number of replies and gained some great ideas for making Pheromone News more useful, informative and entertaining. Most of your replies were very positive and some were downright flattering. We appreciate your thoughts and comments.

SELECTED HIGHLIGHTS:

1. What’s your favorite feature of the Pheromone News?
– I enjoy the research data the most.
– User corner of course. Love those success stories, can’t get enough of them.
– I particularly enjoy the responses from others to the surveys.
– Your feature article.
– I think it might be the editor’s covering letter. It makes readers get interested in the Pheromone News.

2. What issues/questions would you like to see explored in future surveys?
– How have pheromones made a difference for you? Have they enhanced an existing relationship, or have they assisted in new opportunities? In what way?
– True success stories.
– (I’d like) more on how pheromones can affect us, the users. I realize most people seem to be interested in attracting someone, but I also realize what we smell, sense, etc, affects our own emotions and attitudes.
– More about the female side of it. When surfing the web, most of the pheromone products and articles were for men, but please don’t forget the women! We also want to know more about it, and we also want to have a varied choice of products.
– I would like a more in depth report on the newest products, like the smell, what goes into them.

3. What do you feel is the least useful feature of the Pheromone News?
– The questions and answers section makes this seem a little, well, hokey, like one of those weightlifting lists where they say “Dah.. what are the benefits of , doc?”
– The user corner, it’s too short.
– The research articles. If the product works, that is all I care about. I don’t need to know why any more than I already do.
– Actually I think they’re all useful. You want to know the scientific facts, you want to know what other users have experienced and you want to know what kind of products are available, so I would keep it the way it is now.

4. What issues or topics would you like to see featured in upcoming issues of the Pheromone News?
– More user comments and Q&A
– Perhaps a list of what colognes and pheromones have the best overall results when combined.
– I’d just like to see the research continue to get published. The more research I see on the subject, the more I am won over.
– Best Perfumes. Other types of seduction tools like NLP, Psychic Seduction, Hypno Seduction, etc.
– Men’s responses to pheromones used by women. That would be very, very interesting.

5. What could be added to Pheromone News to make it even better? – Perhaps an HTML version of it would be easier to read.
– Links to research sites.
– A question and answer section, where readers submit questions for answers in future issues.
– It’s very good on its own, just need more people stories in the user corner. Stories of normal people.
– More articles about seduction and a longer Q & A section.
==========================================

pheromone Q & A

Q: What kind of reactions can I expect while wearing pheromones? What should I look for when I’m talking to women while I’m wearing a pheromone product?

A: It can depend on the product you’re using, but generally it takes a little time to get “good” at using supplemental pheromones. Many successful users have been perfecting the art for months or even years. It is a little like getting a musical instrument or a tool of some sort. It takes a while to learn how to use it.

If you want to meet a lot of new people, you will still have to initiate most encounters. However, if you are simply out and around others, and look relatively friendly (“safe”), I guarantee that you’ll notice your level of attractiveness to others has changed when using a reasonably potent pheromone product. If you use too much of a product you’ll probably notice a decreased response from others, and if you don’t use enough you may notice only a slight change. However, once you discover the right amount, you will notice the optimal increase with that particular product. From there, application points, combinations of products and/or combinations of pheromone products with traditional colognes are directions that will bring even further, synergistic results.

After a while you start to take for granted the new levels of social respect you command, but most distinctively I remember the very first time I wore a pheromone product, and the first time I used a product called the Edge. Both experiences were in small shops, while being waited on by female staff. On the one occasion, two female employees kept me detained for about 20 minutes while they learned everything they could about me. On the second occasion the woman waiting on me was aggressively helpful, and towards the end got a bad case of the giggles. These women didn’t jump over the counter and tear off my clothes, like some marketers of pheromone products would have you believe, but there was unmistakably something funny going on. That is what I advise you to be on the look out for.

All the Best,
Bruce

FEATURE ARTICLE

THE MYSTERIOUS THIRD pheromone
: WHY IS EVERYONE TALKING ABOUT ANDROSTERONE?

If you’ve used a pheromone product in the past, you’re likely familiar with androstenone and androstenol. These human pheromones are used – individually and in varying blends or concentrations – in virtually every pheromone product on the market today.

Yet, according to Phil Stone, a third pheromone has shown enough effectiveness to merit its use in a commercial product. The pheromone is called androsterone and is an ingredient in Alter Ego, a product for males that is manufactured by Stone Independent Laboratories.

To find out more about androsterone, Pheromone News recently interviewed Phil Stone.
—————————————

Pheromone News: Why use androsterone in a pheromone product?

Phil Stone: “Basically, it was just one of the many steroid backbone compounds we were looking at, as far as having a potential for use in a pheromone product. There are obviously many more that qualify as having some type of influence, subconsciously, and this was at the top of the list. Really, more than anything else, it was a trial and error type of thing. Over the past two years we’ve been doing trial and error on different blends, working them up one at a time, trying various concentrations and different blends of different pheromones. This one, time and time again, has shown the most potential.”

PN: Are there any formal scientific studies supporting androsterone?

PS: “We’ve done quite a few little informal studies, as well as a couple of formal ones we’re waiting to publish, looking at various demographic groups and determining which (pheromones) have the most effectiveness. We worked with two groups, in doing two double blind studies in 2000, and those we’re trying to get published right now. It’s kind of a hard sell because we’re dealing with some stuff that’s not generally accepted, but we’re hoping to have something published as early as June.”

PN: What are the benefits of using three human pheromones in a product?

PS: “It’s generally accepted that androstenone can produce or signal something of an aggressive effect in men, which is also responsible for a great deal of the attraction we find from women. For a long time, we’ve been coupling that compound (androstenone) with androstenol. Androstenol is generally accepted – when it’s used alone – to be more of a male attractant, actually. When you combine the two together, it’s not necessarily a different effect, but for our purposes the numbers go up. We’re looking for women who would choose A over B in a double blind, with studies that entail anything from two tissues with different blends, to studies in the field where blends are applied to test subjects and we can get readings from that. It’s not anything that can be published and it’s not that scientific, but time and time again we see that combining androstenol and androstenone will get a higher response from women, or more attraction.

“And we found that when we add androsterone, the numbers increase by over 30 per cent from just the combination of androstenone and androstenol. Right now, we’re also looking at individually adding androsterone to either androstenone or androstenol, and that’s at an early stage but it looks interesting.”

PN: What kind of effects would someone notice using a product with androsterone?

PS: “Among people using our product, the most common comparison is with Primal Instinct (a popular androstenone-only product). People are noticing that Alter Ego seems to give a much stronger “hit,” and that’s obviously subjective, but it’s the feedback we’re receiving.

“One of the interesting things we didn’t necessarily look for when doing our own studies is that people seem to notice a kind of mood-enhancing, calming effect. We’ve heard this time and time again from people using Alter Ego on a daily basis, and there are literally thousands of them now. I don’t know whether to associate it more with the fragrance or the pheromones, but almost half of the feedback has mentioned some type of feel-good response.”

PN: Does the addition of androsterone mean people should apply more or less of the product?

PS: “This is kind of a new frontier, but the theory that’s accepted right now is that each individual person has their own pheromone signature characteristic. You produce various amounts of pheromones at different levels than other people. There seems to be definite evidence to lead us to believe there’s a most effective, efficient concentration. It’s a matter of trying to attain that by increasing your own signature by various degrees, and noticing the different results.”

I just tried the new Primal Instinct, and additives or not this stuff works…the attention from the women was mind blowing. Three dates for this weekend alone, not to mention a funny story about the way it commands respect. My car needed to go in the shop and all the local shops were busy, but one told me over the phone to stop by to see if they could fit me in. I arrived and there must have been 10 customers ahead of me, all anxious to get in and get out. Well, after waiting 15 minutes or so I went up and asked the girl behind the counter (who was a blue eyed, big-busted beauty) what the chances were of getting in. She smiled at me and said “Your chances of getting in were pretty good,” with a smile on her face a mile wide. She handed me the forms to fill out and a piece of paper. When returning to my seat to fill them out I noticed that she wrote her phone number and address – and also, “are you married? If not call me!!!” Talk about your lucky day. Two more women asked if I was busy this weekend as well, all in the same day. This just from wearing PI and Andro 4.2, along with Bare Seduction and Tommy Boy!!

Letter from the prez…
Hello Readers,

Yes, it has been 3 months since the last issue of the Pheromone News. With a baby, a 5 year old, a beautiful wife, a growing business, and a “day job” as well, it finally dawned on me to hire someone to take over the News. As much as I have enjoyed writing it, I am happy to announce that I have found a wonderful replacement in the form of Dale Andrews, who is actually a professional writer (what a concept!). He is also a Canadian, but I talked to him on the phone for quite a while and he didn’t say “aye?” even once, so I hope you will all welcome him warmly. 😉 He’s a great guy as well as a great writer.

By the way, my family and I just spent the last month touring the US on a half business half Disneyland/Sea World trip. We had a great time, arriving back here in Japan only yesterday. I think half my consciousness is still out over the Pacific somewhere, but I figure since Dale did such a fine job on the NEW pheromone Research News, the least I could do would be to add my opening monologue and send it out. Enjoy and….

Don’t forget to smile at someone today!

pheromone Q&A

Q: What happens if I mix cologne with pheromone products like The Edge or New pheromone Additive?

A: Some people say that mixing diminishes the potency and I have always tended to apply products separately, but I don’t think you need to worry about that. Just make sure you find the right ratio when you mix anything, and that varies according to the cologne you use and your own body chemistry. Experiment with small amounts, starting with about a 10% additive mix and work up. Someone recently said 20% worked well, and that sounds about right depending on the fragrance. Both the Edge and New Additive have the same type and amount of pheromones in each bottle, so it is probably just a matter of convenience which one you prefer.

Human Scent: The Forgotten Language

Your dog can smell fear, and a female pig will instantly assume a mating stance after a good whiff of the male of the species.

Have humans lost the ability to communicate in such a way? Most people would agree that we’re capable of detecting a wide range of scents, some pleasant, others not – but that’s where it ends. Yet, there is growing evidence that humans can not only detect emotions by scent, but also communicate in other ways with the equipment up our noses.

Conveying information
In the animal kingdom, smells can convey an enormous amount of information. Rats, for example, will behave in a nervous manner when they smell the odor emitted by other rats that have received a mild electric shock. But until a recent study, it was never clear whether humans could communicate in the same way.

Scientists have shown that people can actually recognize the smell of happiness or fear. Researchers Denise Chen (Monell Chemical Senses Center) and Jeannette Haviland (Rutgers University) asked a group of men and women to wear absorbent pads under their arms while watching humorous or frightening movie scenes.

The pads were put into separate jars and 37 men and 40 women were asked to sniff the contents and identify happy or scared smells. Most volunteers claimed they couldn�ft smell anything, but the guesses were still quite accurate.

�gWomen were especially good at picking the male fear odor,�h said Chen in a May, 1999 report in New Scientist.

Over three-quarters of the women, and more than half the men, correctly picked the jar containing the scent of fearful men. Over half of the women identified the jar with the scent of happy men. Still, men couldn’t identify the smell of fear from females or the happy scents of other males, according to New Scientist. One likely reason is that women generally have a better sense of smell.

In a related study, Chen and Haviland also showed that human body odors can affect our moods. In the experiment, 308 student volunteers were exposed to the scents of a wide range of people. The scent of old women had the most positive effect on volunteers�f moods. In general, smells from older people and women improved the mood of the student volunteers.

Hormonal changes may make the body odor of older people, and especially women, signal they are approachable, said Haviland in a July 1999 report in New Scientist. On the other hand, she speculated it may also be that older women are generally happy and their scent can provoke this mood in others.

pheromone Connection
While the Chen and Haviland studies looked at the human ability to detect (and react to) certain human odors, other researchers have tried to pinpoint exactly how humans send and detect various signals.
The Vomeronasal organ (VNO) was found in animals as far back as the 1800s, and plays a crucial role in the mating and courtship behavior of many lower animals. The VNO was later discovered in humans but there has been some controversy as to whether it’s a working organ, or merely a nonfunctional vestige of our climb up the evolutionary ladder.

Many scientists now acknowledge the existence of the human VNO and it’s ability to receive certain stimuli and transmit the information to the brain. Whether those stimuli affect our behavior is still a controversial subject.

One study actually used sophisticated electronic equipment to measure the VNO’s operation, as reported in the June 2000 issue of Pheromone News. The study, titled Perfumery and the Sixth Sense, was funded by Erox Corp. (a manufacturer of pheromone-based colognes) and performed by Clive Jennings-White at the University of Utah.

Yet other research has shown that, at least in pigs, the VNO isn’t necessary at all for detection of the pheromone androstenone, a substance that signals sexual attraction and causes the female to adopt a mating stance. This study, by Drs. Dorries KM, Adkins-Regan E, and Halpern BP of Cornell University, could have implications in the human world.

After blocking off the VNO and measuring the behavior of these pigs versus normal “control” pigs, the researchers found that:
“Vomeronasal organ-blocked animals did not differ from untreated controls in either androstenone-mediated receptive standing behavior or attraction to the odor of androstenone. We conclude that in the domestic pig, the vomeronasal organ is not necessary for androstenone detection or androstenone-mediated sexual behavior in estrous females.”

Does this research let us conclude that humans, with our weaker VNO equipment, might detect pheromones in the same manner? At this point, the answer could be, maybe. The extremely overt reactions of pigs and other animals means it is far easier to examine their behavior. The human animal, on the other hand, is more difficult to study. Yet, there is valid scientific evidence to suggest that pheromones like androstenone and androstenol are somehow detected by humans, and contribute to our own mating and courtship behaviors.

In the meantime, take a deep breath and pay attention to what you smell; your nose could be trying to tell you something.

Today I went to get a haircut so I figured it would be a good time to test some pheromones. I put Alter Ego and some cologne on my neck, and The Edge on my chest. Usually the lady that cuts my hair is pretty silent and never talks much, but today she wouldn’t shut up, and she asked a lot of personal questions. Also, I noticed an increased amount of looks and glances. Whenever I’m wearing AE girls do pay more attention to me, and some guys try to be my best buddy and others are really aggressive. At first I was skeptical of pheromones, but now I believe that there is something to them.

**LAST MONTH’S** SURVEY
The “social skills” survey

I got very lucky this month as readers were able to figure out what I was getting at by the use of the term “social skills.” As you all seemed to gather, I wasn’t referring to knowing which fork to eat your salad with, and I was actually quite moved by what I read, as a great number of you obviously recognize the tremendous need for personal/spiritual growth in fostering a happy relationship.

WINNERS:
This month’s drawing winners are:
Curtis, Kim, Allain
~*Congratulations!*~
They will all get a free bottle of a popular pheromone product of their choice.
—————–
THE QUESTIONS (last month)

1. Wouldn’t you agree that we need to spend at least as much time developing the kind of “social skills” we need to maintain a healthy relationship, as we do searching for the ideal mate?

2. If so, what can we do to get those skills?

THE RESULTS

**Selected highlights!**

Well you have to like and love your self, or else you won’t find anyone else who will. Getting social skills is a must have to find any kind of relationship, or else you end up offending everyone you know.

I believe you can acquire social skills by making it a habit to interact with people, and not just members of the opposite sex either. By doing so, you become more comfortable expressing yourself and it becomes easier to communicate with people and they’ll feel more compelled to communicate with you.

Without the “social skills” I wouldn’t give a guy a second look. Hold open a door for me and speak politely and that is the first step in introduction of yourself. The studies that have been done say that first impressions are formed within the first 5 seconds of meeting someone, which goes to show that even before you get to say “hi”, someone has an opinion of you based on your appearance.

Self improvement such as anger management,learning to respect others,truly listening, and all the other important things can be learned,like anything else, with a conscious effort-learning from your mistakes and THINKING about the best way to say or do things will get you on the road to effective communication.Whether you try to learn on your own or with the help of self-improvement tapes, seminars,or other outside forces-the key to success is to be honest with yourself in what you need improvement in, then the desire to change something, and then the effort. It will be breaking a bad habit-catching yourself doing the undesirable thing, and taking a different approach.

I believe there is always someone who has cross that path before me. So I would sit and talk to successful couples to get a few tips and advice.

Often people develop these skills through trial and error within relationships. It isn’t impossible however, to sit and think of what you want from a relationship, and what you can contribute. All you have to do is think of cause and effect.

Even in a healthy relationship we all have areas in which we can improve. Developing “social skills” in ourselves also keep a relationship from going stale. It’s even better when you consciously work on skills together.

The acquisition is painful. It requires becoming unselfish enough to recognize other people and their needs. There are many avenues available. Professional counseling is helpful for those who can afford it. Books like “How to Talk so Your Kids Will Listen (and Listen so Your Kids Will Talk)” are full of great tips that apply to all age levels (including a significant other). There are assertiveness courses that help balance the selfishness/doormat attitude most of us have to get over. John Gray (Mars/Venus) has some great tips. The book “His Needs, Her Needs” lays out how our differing needs affect the relationship. Find someone who has the skills you are wanting and study him/her. Ask him/her for advice and for how he/she achieved his/her skills. Then ask if he/she will help you improve yours.

Finding a mate is only the tip of the iceberg. Keeping them is the rest of it. As a whole we need to learn better skills in learning to communicate with each other, to listen and to react after thinking on it instead of just spouting off what first comes to mind.

For those people who are looking for a long-term relationship, and not just a fling or a few-month-long love affair, keeping it going after the “head over heels” phase has ended is the most difficult part, but also that which best tests the maturity of the two partners.

Since we never know when are ideal mate will come along, perhaps the social skills we need aren’t needed at all! A healthy relationship is a shared adventure, not by what you know, but what makes us both happy. I personally could care less if society thought I was skillful or not..it’s between me and my man what we find works or doesn’t..a shared partnership.

Practice , Practice and more practice, you need to sharpen your own senses and enjoy learning more about the opposite sex with regard to their own particular feeling.

Take chances and go out with a lot of people – build up a repertoire of dating experiences and test your abilities. People are not born conversationalists; they must acquire their skills somewhere.

Go back to teaching some basics in our children. Including respecting one another. It starts in the homes and the school systems.

Let me tell you its very VERY hard to succeed. Each evening you should over think the whole day. Analyze the things you’ve said, things you’ve done and the feelings you had. for SURE you will find a lot of improvements. Maybe you could have been more friendly to your neighbor? You could have been more generous to your kids ? Maybe you even had a chance with this nice lady in the bar if you dint tirade with the barkeeper about the overpriced drink and showed generosity?

Learn to trust a person until they give you a reason not to. Never worry about what others think of you. Learn how to smile regardless of how stressful the situation or how rude the person. If we just slow down and walk through a situation it usually isn’t as bad as it seems. Learn not to run from problems, but to confront them in a level headed manner. If you are mad or upset, give yourself time to calm down before you tackle the problem. Learn to talk and not argue. Always listen to both sides of a story, but never be pulled into the “he said, she said” game. That only hurts others in the end. Be a good listener as well as a good adviser. Never judge a person by what they do or have, rather by who they are. I could go on, but you get the idea.

Spend time in social situations, church groups, bowling league, softball teams etc. Go anywhere there are people and interact with them…observe how others treat each other….take the best of those actions and reactions and incorporate them into yourself.

Most of these skills should be taught by parents and family. We cannot rely on schools and overworked teachers to raise our families. They have a difficult enough time providing instruction on educational skills without trying to teach social skills. Ethics and morals MUST be learned at home, and if we wish to be respected, then we must converse in a manner which shows respect for others.

The same way we get them as when we were children — by associating with others. Everyone has different standards as to what is acceptable socially, and the more you recognize – and accept – these differences the easier it is to socialize.

When I started looking for a mate, I changed my way of life and pretended to be someone I wasn’t. I only found people with those “social skills” that I was trying to pretend I had. The relationships never worked out. I finally found someone who loved me for me and didn’t need me to be have a “model” personality. I learn from my mistakes as I live and I then change with each new learned lesson ( be it of compassion, honesty, etc…)

It would be nice if we could get them from out parents but that is not always possible. I have found that good communication and the willingness to admit we are wrong and asking our partners what they want helps.

I think it starts with our parents and the type of relationship we were raised in. If it was one of love and honesty, then it tells true that we would be of the same caliber in our own adult relationships. But we are human beings and capable of learned behavior (which can go both positive and negative).

Ultimately, the skills should be started in infancy by observing positive parental interaction. Social skills, as a core means of communication in our society has become less and less important. If we would like to enter into and maintain a healthy long-term relationship, the skills should be developed as soon as possible, if they haven’t been developed, then they should be even as late as within an already established relationship. In case we don’t get the skills from our family environment, then schools should implement the teaching of these skills as part of their curriculum; that is how important they are. For those of us who are older, there could be various methods of acquiring the skills, like a chat room or discussion group through your web-site.

There is an abundance of self-help books, information on the internet, classes, TV shows directed at developing better interpersonal relationships, etc. that are available to anyone who wants to make the effort to better themselves.

Care enough to exercise the infinite patience it takes to resolve the many inevitable differences between partners.

Things like compassion can be “practiced” on a daily basis. You see a grocery bagger sagging with tired feet at the end of their shift… offer to carry out your own…you’re going that way anyway. Encourage them to take a minute for themselves.

I think the most essential “social skill” is simply common courtesy, or “The Golden Rule-” Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Having respect and courtesy for your partner is the biggest hurdle to get over. After that, common interests, chemistry, etc. will follow as a matter of course. An affluent person may view “social skills” as knowing which utensil to use at a meal,

from watching good couples communicating within them and learning from our mistakes like when you see your parents fighting.

We can read books or listen to tapes or take classes to acquire these skills.

Simple! Practice, practice, practice! Practice with your friends, family, partners, and anybody else you come in contact in a daily basis. Every time someone talks to you, try your best to be honest, sincere, and all the good quality that you can think of. I’m very good at making people laugh, therefore, I got a lot of friends, both sexes.

The most important ingredient in developing social skills is to learn to listen to who you’re talking to.

Get to know yourself. Learn what you really like and gravitate towards those areas. Go to classes and ask questions. Learn to be kind and considerate and how to be a true friend.

Read, listen and converse. Put yourself out there. The best way to learn is through experience.

Think before we react, think of the other persons feelings before making a comment or judgment. Don’t vocalize your thoughts until you have really thought about the reaction to your action.

First and foremost you need to develop an understanding of people. You need to stop thinking about yourself and become genuinely interested and involved with other people. By doing this, people will naturally be inclined towards you and this in turn helps you develop these social skills.

take a good look inside, and try to become what we want ourselves to be. But this can be tricky, too because you have to want to be whatever it is for yourself and not just to please that other person or be what you think he/she wants you to be like.

We have those skills the trick is to release the Ego from the game.

We Need to learn from watching other healthy relationships…

We can learn by imitation. I don’t mean be fake, but try to watch how successful people around you interact with each other. You can even try asking them how they would handle situations to give you a basis. Sincerity and humor are two of the best social skills that I know.

Learn from watching a couple that has been married for more than 30 years. Perhaps our grandparents hold the true knowledge on this one.

Simply observe. By observing our mate, we can get ideas about what they really like. And by doing so, we can decide whether it’s worth to provide what they like.

One of the ways I try to develop my own social skills is by treating others as I want to be treated. That means, for me, respect, courtesy, thoughtfulness, a smile, a sense of humor, not always trying to be dominant in a conversation, listening, speaking openly but tactfully, and following through with promises made. It’s not about being Miss Nice or being a doormat, either, but simply treating people well. If you are practicing good social skills in your everyday life, you hone these skills and they can help you advance at work, do better in school, be a better neighbor and become a an active part in your community.

Live life. Learn who “YOU” are and learn to love yourself and be comfortable with who you are. Read Scott Peck’s “A Road Less Traveled” and listen to a lot of John Grey’s stuff. Create a genuine interest in learning the skills and caring about your mate.

Volunteer, volunteer, volunteer. Be a part of the phone bank or watch polls at election time. Become a docent at the local museum. Help kids with a scouting project. Donate your technical skills to schools. Everybody has a special talent they can share with others. Hmmmm…sharing…isn’t that a big part of most relationships?

pheromone Q&A

Q: Are there any ways to raise the pheromone level with out using the cologne?

A: Yes, there are many, but simply maintaining good general health is probably the most advisable.
Bodybuilding and other safe/natural testosterone raising techniques should also raise output of the sex pheromones. I read an article saying that celery would increase androsterone levels, and I imagine there must be a great many other dietary factors that affect pheromone production. You also might want to give some thought to preserving the pheromones you are already producing by avoiding anti-bacterial soaps and deodorants.
——-
Q: When I read information on another pheromone product (Athena), they stated that their product has to be mixed with an alcohol based after shave and has to have contact with your skin in order for the product to combine with your body chemistry in order to work. What I have read about Primal (the pheromone product, “Primal Instinct”) is that it doesn’t even have to be on your skin. I do not know which to believe. What is your expert opinion? Also if I apply Primal behind my ears and I go workout and sweat a lot, does it wear out? Would it be better to place some on my clothes?

A: Personally, I wouldn’t worry about mixing with cologne unless you want to go that route. I don’t think it is necessary and may even increase the chance of loss through destruction of the active ingredient and/or precipitation. The other question is not so easy to answer. There are pluses and minuses to both skin and clothing application. When you skin-apply a product like Realm and (probably) Athena’s, which contain other steroidal material in addition to the usual andro pheromones, there is always the chance of some entering the blood-stream and causing mood elevation. This also may be possible with some of the strong pheromone products like Primal too. But mostly whether or not to skin apply is a matter of finances, and how “ripe” you want to get for the situation at hand. pheromones applied to clothing last a LONG time. I once had a sweater worn by an old girlfriend of mine, and I got such a warm feeling inhaling the fumes off of that thing. It lasted for months I think. When you go to the gym and put a couple dabs behind your ears, it is gone in an hour or two. You are giving off a lot of the scent quickly at those times, and don’t need to apply much. Experiment and see what works best for you. It can take weeks to find a winning approach.

Female Sex Hormones and Related pheromones
Bruce Boyd

NOTE: The following article is the second of a two part series reprinted from the August and September, 1999 issues of the pheromone Research News.
——–
In last month’s Pheromone News I wrote about some interesting research done by Astrid Jutte on the effects of sexual stimuli in the form of porn movies on the testosterone levels of both male and female subjects. Although testosterone is known primarily as a male sex hormone it is, in fact, the controlling factor of the sex drive of both men and women. When we are exposed to sexual stimuli of any kind, our testosterone level increases and with it we experience the feeling of sexual desire. Conversely, as we get older and produce smaller amounts of testosterone we experience the well-known general diminishment of the sex drive. There are a number of things we can do to prevent that from happening, but that is a story for another day, because one alert reader who is also a nurse would like to know what is up with the female sex hormones and their corresponding pheromones.

While the testosterone-linked “andro” pheromones are produced by both sexes and effectively give others olfactory (smell) information about our testosterone level and therefore our probable interest in sex, the primarily female sex hormones (estrogen and progesterone) are producing pheromone-like substances that give information to others not about the owners interest in sex, but in the likelihood of producing offspring, which biologically is the “reason” we have sex (by the way). As everyone knows, when female animals are at the optimal point in their menstrual cycle for producing offspring (point of ovulation), there occur changes in their vaginal secretions that have a dramatic effect on the sex drive of males of their species that are in the immediate area. These changes are controlled by the normal cyclic changes in female sex hormones (estrogen and progesterone) within the body and work their romantic magic on nearby males, at least in part, by increasing male testosterone levels dramatically, merely by giving them a whiff of the pheromones contained in their vaginal secretions! This phenomenon has obviously been of very big interest to scientists in the fragrance industry and has resulted in the discovery and isolation of the exclusively female human sex pheromone known as “copulins”, which occurs naturally in the vaginal secretions of women. It has been shown in scientific studies (Jutte) to drive male testosterone levels through the roof (150% of baseline), and almost undoubtably has major potential as a part of the romantic arsenal of any woman interested in getting a rise out of her romantic partner. I have also heard from reliable sources that copulins is being evaluated for its potential use by body builders, who are always interested in the anabolic (muscle increasing) effects of high testosterone levels.

Other research (Michael et al, 1975) has demonstrated that the composition of the female human pheromone, copulins, varies in close coordination with the varying levels of estrogen and progesterone in the female body, which in animals produce such an obvious behavioral effect in dogs and cats. (ie: the female goes into heat and every male in the neighbor is willing to dodge rush-hour traffic to get near her)

CONCLUSION:
The Jutte study shows us two things about humans:

#1 When males sniff the female pheromone copulins their testosterone level jumps to a towering 150%, which scientists agree increases the sex drive.
#2 Males will rate photos of females higher if they are secretly given a whiff of copulins.

THEREFORE, all other things being equal, we can guess that men will like women who emit the scent of copulins better than they will like women who don’t *and* they will be rendered “horny” by that whiff of copulins.

ALSO, the Michael study tells us that the composition of a woman’s copulins changes according to the phase of her monthly cycle, and this we know is part of the biology that is driving male dogs and cats completely insane to get at ovulating females.

UNFORTUNATELY though, the Jutte study was unable to show any relation between the type of copulins (ie, which phase of menstruation it came from) and the amount of attraction it stimulated in male subjects. In other words, males find women wearing all types of copulins equally attractive. What researchers are looking for, of course, is human males being more attracted to ovulating females than to non-ovulating females as is the case with our pets, but were unable to find it. That doesn’t mean that the effect doesn’t exist, but they were unable to detect it with this type of test. There is some evidence from another study (name escapes me at the moment) that pheromones produced by females with high progesterone levels (commonly found during menstruation and pregnancy) have the effect of *reducing* testosterone levels in nearby males, which would of course reduce their sex drive.

So, we’re getting thumbs up on copulins as a sex pheromone, but the jury is still out on the effects of ovulation on its attractive powers. (see survey below)

But just in case, don’t forget to smile!

Hello Readers,

Happy Halloween!
It’s been a rough month for sports injuries in my family, and we all look like we are dressed as the Mummy for a Halloween party. I threw out my knee at our traditional Japanese Fall neighborhood tug of war, one of my kids fell off the jungle gym and broke his arm a few days after that. Then last Tuesday I separated my shoulder lifting weights. Japan is not known as a “call in sick” kind of a society, though. Neither of us missed a day of work or school.

Want a free bottle of pheromones? Remember to send in a survey this month! I always pick at least two respondents at random for a free bottle of their choice. With this issue readers Jenifer, Kevin, and Chris won something.

Be sure to read the survey results this month. They’re very interesting, and don’t forget to smile at someone today!

**Selected highlights!**

WOMEN SPEAK ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE LOOKING FOR IN A MAN:

If I can find someone to make me laugh, that is a good start. Someone who has good communication skills is a must. If you can’t talk about things, there is no point in having a relationship.

He should be genuine, honest, witty, a friend. Willing to communicate openly, embrace our differences and be able to express himself with words and actions.

The ability to be friends amidst an intimate relationship is very important. Trust is also of the utmost importance.

Someone who is truly caring, and open minded. One who will listen to my opinions, and who really wants to work together to make a relationship successful and fulfilling.

As corny as it sounds someone who touches my soul, like they can see inside and understand me. Somewhat like their heart speaking to mine.

Something I consider most important in a mate is a fertile mind. Someone who is adventurous, and fun to be with. Sense of humor is also extremely important.

I want someone that can laugh at jokes as well as make me laugh. They shouldn’t get mad easily and be easy going and fun to be around for the rest of my life.

Someone that I am comfortable with. Dependable, but with a little touch of wild side…especially in the bedroom. He lets me “be me” without trying to change me or make a lot of demands

I want someone who doesn’t want to control me. I want someone who will let me be me. I want someone who can take care of themselves, who wants to spend time with me but doesn’t mind if I want to go out with the girls instead of being with him.

Communication skills are important. If you can talk about it, generally you can work out any other issues. But along with that comes a willingness to listen and the capability to understand AND work things out.

One of the most important things to me in a mate is the ability and willingness to get to know me….the real me….to get to know the little things that make me happy…..the simple little things in life that can turn my worst day into my best day.

I thing that the most important thing in a mate is their willingness to understand you. Of course that has to be mutual. If your mate continually ignores you when you are trying to tell them personal things about yourself then they obviously don’t really care about “yourself”.

I look for a mate who is not shy toward physical closeness, as I value things like embraces very much.

What’s important to me is my mate being a caring and considerate person who has a good heart. And who makes me laugh and enjoys the simple things in life.

He has the capability of relating to children, being understanding, loving caring, good sense of humor. I want a man to be able to cry if he’s hurting.

Having someone you can relate to, being able to communicate with them freely without fear of rejection, a sense of humor, and similar interests. Having a similar sex drive is important as well.

That he is responsible, kind, and loving family man.

I like a man who is good with children. I grew up with a father who traveled all week and was only home on the weekends but he made every moment special with us and gave us great childhood memories. I think this is very important.

I wanted a man who is intelligent, family oriented, able to make me laugh, and gainfully employed.

A man who is strong of character, dependable, a good conversationalist, sexy (in his own way), sharing, caring, and loving.

A mate should have some interests of his own and respect that you also have some interests that may not include him. A mate needs to be willing to enjoy time as a couple and personal time.

I believe the most important thing in any relationship is honesty and trust. Great sex is just the icing on the cake.

To be a friend. To be able to love me for all my faults, negativity, health problems I may have when I get older. To be able to carry a decent conversation. To have the same set of high values. To have life long goals that I can be included in. A hobby that we can both share in.

For me, it is important that my mate be able to make me laugh, let me cry, hold me up, and be able to have a conversation on the same level as me.

I say that what is important to me in a mate is that we can talk to each other about anything. Another thing that I would say is important is that he must know how to kiss, because a kiss can start the fire burning inside and and it can also show how much he really cares about you.

The most important thing for me in a mate is communication, because without it there cease to be a relationship. Communication includes Listening and Fairness, Giving and Trusting. Its the freedom to be yourself and the knowledge of knowing the other will be there for you without doubt. Its Sharing and Caring for one another and growing old together, but it all begins with Communication.

It is very important to me to find a mate that is compassionate and caring. If he has these traits then the rest will work itself out.

I am attracted to a guy who shows that he is sensitive and kind. I also like that they like to be close to me, and are not afraid to show how they feel.

MEN SPEAK ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE LOOKING FOR IN A WOMAN:

Someone who not only cares about me but about others as well. Someone willing to give of their time whether it be to help friends or charitable work.

It is very important for me to be with a person who is very honest and is not afraid to tell me what she thinks. That is in ANY situation. I also am looking for someone who likes what I do and will not expect me to change for them, and can get along with my friends and family.

I have been attracted to women who weren’t perfect 10s, and that all boiled down to personality. I don’t need a Cindy Crawford or a Rebecca Romjin-Stamos, and I have met some externally beautiful women who were ugly as sin on the inside. It’s more important to me if we click from a personality standpoint first. You can’t build a relationship with someone you can’t get along with!

I like a woman with a sense of humor, and does not take every thing too seriously all the time, as well as the ability to relax and enjoy life.

The MOST important thing to me in a mate is fidelity. Without fidelity, there can be no trust. To me it is the cornerstone of a solid relationship and represents total commitment.

Most important is compatibility with the same interests and desires. And also the love of passion and spontaneity.

i really get turned on by ambitious women, it shows me that they are driven, motivated, and don’t easily quit on things.

Being a kind person is becoming more & more important.

Most important to me is that the person should be someone I can talk to and laugh with. If we’re not on the same level intellectually, there’s no chance that we can possibly communicate properly on any plane, and communication is the basis of any good relationship.

I think companionship and honesty are important. If you have friendship, the rest follows.

Compatibility , i.e. sharing same ideas, music, outlook on life and most importantly being a Christian.

She should be adventurous and should like to travel. Love to nature and animals is also important.

I think the ideal mate is a friend, someone who will support me emotionally and share their innermost experiences with me.

Being able to understand I can’t be around them all the time. Possession is a turn off. I love my time to just read. Having her excited about my interests, as I am excited and encourage hers. Laughing is very important to me. And a woman who doesn’t mind me cooking once in a while.

Someone who doesn’t take things too seriously and can laugh at herself when she needs to. Being in shape is good not only because she looks good, but also because she’s probably going to be a little more confident, which is a plus, and she’ll probably also be a little healthier than most girls.

Somebody who understands when I do something “dumb”, and won’t jump to judge me. I want someone who has a tender heart, and who is loyal, and who will give emotionally those things a man needs.

Compatibility is important to me. As is honesty and an ability to laugh.

I need someone I can converse with and laugh with, someone with relatively equal intelligence and a similar sense of humor and preferences.

I am looking for someone who is responsible, fun to be around, and who does not mind trying new things.

The single most important thing in a mate is clearly the capability to talk with him/her. If you are able to just talk and talk for hours then it is a good sign of a potential relationship. On first approach the physical condition (face, body etc.) could be important, but as soon as you get to know someone you will find out that it really is the inside that matters, not the outside. Eventually you will see a not so beautiful person being very pretty in your eyes

pheromone Q&A

Q: I have never had any luck meeting women. I have tried pheromones and that doesn’t seem to help either. What am I doing wrong?

A: Luck is a great thing when it comes along, but you can not count on it. Probably the only thing you can count on is persistence. If you persist you will succeed, and the use of pheromones is no exception. It is very common to notice nothing on the first try; you have to keep at it for a while. Be friendly, be helpful, and most importantly experiment and keep at it. Also, be careful of using too much pheromone and/or cologne, especially if you don’t notice the smell very much yourself. You can definitely overdo it.

I have gotten countless letters that basically go like this:
“I got the product
I tried it and nothing happened.
I tried it again and nothing happened. I got frustrated.
I tried it again and finally bingo!
Thank you very much….”

I don’t know why it happens this way, but it often does, even with folks you don’t know. But keep in mind that it can be hard to change the minds of friends and co-workers that have you “pegged” a certain way.

Finally, anytime you go after something, it is a “crap-shoot” isn’t it? You lose, you lose, you WIN! pheromones just slant the odds more heavily in your favor. You still have to take some chances.

I remember sitting in a bar in Ireland once with this very funny guy. Everybody loved him. He was tall thin, gangly and funny-looking, but everybody loved him. They used to call him “Willy Toothbrush” because he carried his toothbrush with him everywhere. But besides his toothbrush, he always seem to have a beautiful girl as well, and I was asking with him about that. He said: “Bruce, if you walked around this bar and asked every one of these women to have a drink with you, eventually you would find one that would say ‘yes’, wouldn’t you?” I had to agree. He continued: “Well, I can tell which one is going to say ‘yes’ before I even ask her, so that makes it easier for me.” There you have it.. Willy Toothbrush’s secret. Maybe it doesn’t have to be painful, but you have to take risks and be persistent if you want success at anything.

Research: Natural pheromone levels and sexual Stimuli
-Bruce Boyd

NOTE: The following article is the first of a two part series reprinted from the August and September, 1999 issues of the pheromone Research News. Part 2 will appear next month.
——–
Well, in case you don’t have any celery [natural source of the pheromone androsterone], on hand you might want to read the following article. It describes another natural way to increase your pheromone levels. The scientific basis for the theory comes from a short report drawn from a speech given by the eminent Austrian pheromone researcher, Astrid Jutte.

The two most popular pheromones that have lately made their way into the news and into the fragrance industry as well are called, androstenone and androstenol. As with all other pheromones they are produced by hormones excreted by the body through the skin where they react with bacteria. These pheromones are quite volatile and move through the air where they are picked up by a specialized sensing apparatus (VNO) in the noses of those nearby, where they transmit vital information about us to those individuals. Since it is our own hormones that drive the production of pheromones, it stands to reason that higher levels of the androgen hormones (ones that cause the sex drive) will cause us to naturally produce higher levels of the pheromones that are popularly made in factories today with the very goal of attracting others for this purpose. Some interesting research performed by Dr. Jutte, shows us how we can do just that.

What is it chemically that makes us want to have sex? Surprisingly enough for both men and women it is the same hormone, testosterone! And, how can we establish if a man or women is interested in sexual activity. (for scientific purposes of course).

Three ways:
1. We can ask the subject: “ahem….um…excuses me…but..um….are you horney?”
2. We can check for blood flow to the genital area.
3. We can check testosterone levels.

All of these work but the first is apparently the least reliable especially with women according to the Jutte study. And how do we make people horney (for scientific purposes of course): porn movies! Yes, an equal number of male and female subjects in the Jutte study were shown a 15 minute pornographic video while they were alone, and their testosterone levels were checked via a saliva test at intervals before and after the “exposure”.

What were the results? Who gets hornier from watching sex scenes alone in a room., men or women? You women know the truth, while all the male readers have been believing the big lie for all these years. Scientific results show that………both men and women respond equally!!!! There was a little fudging on the horniness self-report forms by females apparently, but the medical tests showed equality between the sexes! Finally! Oh, by the way, there was one more difference besides the accuracy of the self-report forms, and that was the length of time that the video-induced testosterone “high” lasted. Again no surprise to women and that is that after the stimulating video has been turned off, the average male testosterone level was back to baseline in 15 minutes, ready to roll over and start snoring, while the lonely female testosterone level took much longer to calm down. I knew there had to be a medical explanation for that.

So, there you are; the facts are in. If you want to raise your pheromone level naturally, (which won’t crash out on you like your fickle testosterone level guys), just get yourself good and horney for at least 15 minutes.

But again, just in case, don’t forget to smile!

(below)
————————-
Survey/Contest time!

THE NOVEMBER SURVEY:
In the October survey, we explored qualities that we are looking for in a mate, but a great number of surveys came with items like “honesty”, “sense of responsibility”, or “compassion” written in at the “other” section of the list. I guess it makes sense to look for someone honest, reliable, kind, etc, etc, but to what extent are we really making these qualities a priority in our search? And even if we are really determined to find a “moral mate”, there is an obvious question to address before we start interviewing potential spouses; a question that reminds me of a line from an old Woody Allen movie: “Any club that would have me as a member, is not the kind of club I want to belong to.” Or as an old girlfriend of mine once said to me: “If you find this ideal mate of yours, why in the world would she want anything to do with you?” Or as the Cajun mama said to her son in a goofy movie recently: “Son, you ain’t got what they call the ‘social skills.'”

I get a lot of mail from divorced or separated readers. In fact probably half of the people reading these words right now have been divorced at least once. And for every letter I get that says: “I’ve learned my lesson, next time I’m going to do things differently.” I get twenty that say “I’ve learned my lesson, next time I’m going to pick a better partner.”

I have a feeling this is going to be a very unpopular survey, but I have to ask it….

***************
THE QUESTION:

1. Wouldn’t you agree that we need to spend at least as much time developing the kind of “social skills” we need to maintain a healthy relationship, as we do searching for the ideal mate?

2. If so, what can we do to get those skills?

3. Do you think these skills must be acquired within the context of a relationship?

THE QUESTIONS (last month)
What books, seminars, and/or other resources can you recommend to readers that might help them enrich their current relationships or modify their approach to dating in such a way as to increase their success in future relationships?

THE RESULTS:
Bingo! I think we really struck it rich this month with the survey. I got over 80 serious replies and a wealth of good references: books, websites, seminars… I have always enjoyed reading the survey results, but this month I found myself repeatedly saying to myself: “Hmmm. I’ll have to take a look at that website later.” or “Wow! That sounds like a good book.” Be sure to look through the highlights section below, and you might even want to take some notes.

Now have a look at the….

Selected highlights!

Several years before my introduction into the world of dating, I subscribed to the Dating Tip of the Day and the Kissing Tip of the Day at http://www.thekiss.com/tips, “just in case.” Reading the countless messages archived in my Eudora e-mail box increased my repertoire of relationship plans and whatnot. Although many of the reader-suggested ideas are a bit kitschy, there are also a few choice morsels of information. In addition to this website, other romance resources such as http://www.rom101.com and http://www.lovingyou.com exist. These seem much more helpful in determining strategies in current and future relationships.

Well, I’ve heard a lot of people say “Dianetics” by L Ron Hubbard has helped them. As far as I’m concerned, The Bible is a good reference source. Just having Faith and Trust in a Supreme Power enables one to have faith and trust in themselves. It has been my belief that it is extremely difficult to love someone else, if you cannot love yourself.

A book that I would recommend is “A Man’s Guide: What Women Want”. This is written by Laurence Roy Stains and Stefan Bechtel. This is a basic no-nonsense guide of what we clearly see what a woman wants but usually are too ignorant as men to notice. It helped me to understand women not only in dating situations but also create stronger friendships with the women I already know….

I HIGHLY recommend a book called “The Five Languages of Love”. If I had read this before I probably would not be divorced today. It talks about how people speak different “languages” and if the partners do not know which language to speak, the other partner will not feel validated and fulfilled. The languages are: “Words of Affirmation”, “Quality Time”, “Acts of Service”, “Physical Touch”, and “Gifts”. My spouse “spoke” the “Acts of Service” language, he was always DOING things (working outside, working on the car, lawn, etc). Unfortunately, my “receiving language” was “Quality Time”. So he thought he was doing everything he could to please me and I thought he spent too much time puttering around which was stealing time that we could have spent doing things together. PROBLEM!!!

Try reading “Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus”. You have to learn how to understand each other before anything will work in a relationship. Honesty helps also and so does reading the Bible!

This may sound a little odd but I think reading the Dalai Lama book The Art of Happiness and using it in conjunction with parts of The Rules book is a good way to form relationships. The Dalai Lama book for relationships in general and the Rules for love relationships.

Make a commitment and start standing for someone or for a cause. Read the New Testament. It will read like your own life story. And you will realize we all start off as babies, self-centred , self-opinionated and selfish. Being part of a Christian family of caring and accepting people can do wonders for your spiritual and emotional growth.

The thing that has helped the most is a change in “my” attitude. Thats right ladies I have found the secret to a GOOD relationship sexually and otherwise. We have been married 17 years and we have a 5yr. old and a 19 mo. old and let me tell you since our first baby was born the fiz turned flat in our relationship and I blamed it all on my husband I accused him of giving me no attention and that he was always grouchy and tired and after fighting about this for a few years and feeling like our relationship would never be good again I remembered something I had been hearing for years in church “Do unto others as you would have others to do unto you” and “you reep what you sow” hmm.. what was I sowing? I was giving him no attention and I was grouchy and tired all the time!!!! I soon realized if I want this relationship to work out and I do I had to put some effort in it and let me tell you it works!!!!!

– The Secret Language of Relationships : Your Complete Personology Guide to Any Relationship With Anyone — Gary Goldschneider, Joost Elffers; Hardcover $27.96 at Amazon.com

Well one of the best books i can say on the market today…is Women on Top by Nancy Friday….For Each Other bye Lonnie Barbach, PhD……and New joy of Sex by Alex Comfort PhD…these books really have helped me and my relationships…

This is really a very difficult answer. If it were not so hard people would be married forever. After 3 failed marriages and numerous relationships I have finally come to realize that the problem is within myself.

Everyday millions of us are found in the ‘self-help’ — ‘relationship-guide” aisles more than ever before. WHY? When it comes down to the basics of what we know is true, good and right, don’t we really know the basic answers deep down inside? Why do so many feel so compelled for the need for reinforcement and guidance?
Honestly, if we stop and think about what we are searching for, most of us can find the answers deep inside ourselves. The answers are already there, most of us were taught the basic truths many, many years ago. Our best reference is the basic guide we were taught early in life — be true, honest and good to yourself and those you love. With that as a guide, there is no stronger magnet for people.

I am a ardent viewer of OPRAH whenever Dr. Phil is on. His no-nonense approach to honesty in the relationship is awe-inspiring.He really helps you get past your own preconceived notions of yourself and down to the reality of what reaction your actions produce.

I personally like all of the John Gray books. He seems to really have a handle on how both men and women think and act. I think many people (myself included) tend to rush into a relationship without really getting to know the person first. That’s OK as long as our expectations are reasonable for the stage that we’re in at the time. And…..sometimes we go in and out of the different stages a number of times with the same person.

Attend singles seminars around your city. Go to various sources to get varied viewpoints such as a local community college, a church and possibly a local counseling center

If you want more success, personally, in your relationships you have to talk to people who have seen you with the people you date, seen how you interact and treat the other person. Family, friends, people that can view from the outside can help out a lot and point some things out to you that will help you improve the way you treat and let yourself be treated by your girl/boyfriend or date. Don’t be afraid to want to improve and when somebody compliments you on something you do well, grab on to that and run with it!!

A favorite book of mine that helped me through the last few years of a 28 year marriage (which ended in divorce) was: “Women Who Run With The Wolves” by ‘Clarice Pinkola Estes’ This book is EXCELLENT for both men and women, and can be found at almost any book store.

While his aim is more towards the business aspect, Stephen Covey’s Seven Habits Of Highly Effective People highlights many attributes for improving relationships. I know this comes in book form, as well as seminars and whatnot. He has a whole line of stuff out there to improve your life in an organized way. Basically his theory is that if you acknowledge that you are your own responsibility and that your choices affect your future, and make a conscious effort to BE PROACTIVE (he really digs that word)… one thing I really took to heart was his theory of “Seek First to Understand, THEN to be Understood” that is the background of many relationships.

When I was having trouble with my boyfriend, I read several books by Barbara DeAngelis that were very interesting. One was called “The Passion Paradox”. I’m not sure if they were ultimately helpful, but they did make me think.

I believe that the way to fully enjoy your personal relationships is to enrich your own life through self discovery. The more you know about yourself, the more you have to offer someone special. I would recommend any self enlightenment book, such as “Seat of Your Soul” by Gary Zukov. It will fill you with a sense of purpose which gives you an undeniable feeling of self worth. When you’re sure of yourself, you become much more attractive.

Personally, I’ve found that if you work on yourself, the rest falls into place. Go to the gym, quit the bad habits, clean up your act. People notice a person who cares about themselves and respect themselves. Become someone that others WANT to be around. That’s what I did, and it worked for me.

I’d recommend “Are You the One for Me?” by Barbara DeAngelis. She’s very practical and straightforward and offers lots of useful ways to think about love and the reasons behind attraction.

I personally like the Dale Carnegie series of books such as “How to stop worrying and start living” I find them very helpful in putting a positive twist on life.

The audio tapes by John Gray, “How to find your Soulmate”, was the most intriquing of any tapes or books I’ve encountered in regards to finding that “perfect mate”. They were given to me by a very special man at a time when I felt my self-worth as a woman was nil. The advice given was real and down to earth. Mr. Gray also has a sense of humor ,so there was never a boring moment. Much of what Mr Gray had to say was a bit raw, and “stimulating”, but I made myself sit through every word—-even those things that I didn’t quite agree with—-those were some of the things that hit “home.” The tapes weren’t expensive, but even if they had been, it was worth the priceless advice given.

There is a book that i think all men should read, that would help them and the women they come in contact with. I wish i had read this when i was 18. The name of the book is “Everything Your Father Should Have Told You About Women, Love,Romance and Love-making” by: Ben Sterling; Volcano Books, po box 439, 2 Sydenham road, Cheltenham, UK GL526wj

I think anything by Dr. “Tell it like it is” Phil McGraw would be beneficial, whether one is in a relationship or single.

Absolutely the best book in helping one to have a lasting and fulfilling love is “Keeping the Love You Find…A Personal Guide” by Harville Hendrix, Ph.D. In it, Dr. Hendrix points out that all of us – even so-called ‘well-adjusted normal people’ (in my opinion an oxymoron these days!) – have unresolved conflicts that unknowingly make them seek out incompatible partners, sabotage current relationships and/or simply run from commitments without knowing why.

The book that I found most useful in getting to know myself, seeing my reactions to others, and affecting change is: ” When I say no, I feel guilty” , by Manuel J. Smith, PhD.

I’m new to this site but have attended Barbara DeAngelis seminar and have read her books. Ask Barbara-The 100 most-asked questions about Love, Sex, and Relationships is really a great paperback book for everyone. It’s very informative and straight forward.

…another book that may help those who want to be helped, is: “I love you, talk to me” by Donald R. Harvey, I truly believe communication between a man and a woman is the key to a successful relationship and this book is a good start in that direction. The “Marriage Builder” by Lawrence J. Crabb Jr. is also a informative book , sometimes we forget to keep our personal relationship with our spouse, as exciting as the first date or gratifying as the “first time”.

…books I recommend: 1001 Ways to Be Romantic by Gregory Godek, 2002 Romantic Ideas : Special Moments You Can Share With the One You Love by Cyndi Haynes, Dale Edwards

A friend of mine highly recommends a book called “Men and Women Starting Over” by John Gray.

I have learned proper communication skills from a book/workbook (the book has practice sections with example conversations) called “Expressing Your Feelings, The Key To Intimate Relationships” by Roger T. Crenshaw, M.D. I can’t tell you how much this book has helped me in all type of relationships. If you learn the basic skills you will find that there will be less arguing and more deep personal feelings being expressed in any conversation. I highly recommend this book for enhancing all relationships.

I think the best book on relationship is the Chicken Soup for the Couple’s Soul: 101 Inspirational Stories About Love and Relationships. Also, books by one of the author of Chicken soup, DeAngelis Barbara are also very good in enriching current and future relationship. I.E. How to make love all the time by DeAngelis Barbara, Phd. In her book, Barbara did mention John Gray’s books (I think she mentioned that she worked with him on some research). One of the famous book on relationship Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus: by John Gray. As far as seminar is concerned try
http://www.onlineconsulting.com/motspeakers.htm
You can find information on both John Gray and Barbara’s seminars.

Well, file this under the “for what it’s worth department”, but my recommendation for an excellent “improving your success in future relationships” teaching is Barbara DeAngelis’ “Making Love Work” seminar series. This series is comprised of two video tapes: one is the seminar video which covers the following topics: 1) The real reason couples fight & how to prevent it; 2) The wrong & right way to communicate your feelings; 3) The secret ingredient for making love last a lifetime; 4) How to resolve negative feelings in minutes; 5) Live demonstrations of Barbara’s love techniques. The second video tape is entitled “Secrets about men every woman should know” (Hmmmmm…….OK guys, the gig is up; you are fully exposed!). Also included are 5 cassette tapes which talk about: 1) Making love first; 2) Discovering the hidden source of your love problems; 3) Breaking through your emotional walls: secrets for love that lasts; 4) The secret ingredients for making relationships work; 5) Keeping the magic of love alive year after year. There is a lot of useful stuff offered in this seminar, of particular interest to me was how to avoid getting into toxic relationships. We all know people who go from one bad relationship to another bad relationship, because their mind is subconsciously programmed to seek out the wrong people and exclude those who would truly make them happy.

pheromone Q&A

Q: I would like to ask you a few more questions about Primal (name of product). When I read information on another pheromone product (Athena), they stated that their product has to be mixed with an alcohol based after shave and has to have contact with your skin in order for the product to combine with your body chemistry in order to work. What I have read about Primal is that is doesn’t even have to be on your skin. I do not know which on to believe. What is your opinion? Also if I apply Primal behind my ears and I go workout and sweat a lot, does it wear out? How long does the effect of Primal stay with me if I place it behind my ears? would it be better to place some on my clothes? How many times a day should I put more Primal on?

A: Don’t worry about mixing with cologne/aftershave. It is not necessary and will always increase the chance of loss through destruction of the active ingredient and/or precipitation. The other question is not so easy to answer. There are pluses and minuses to both skin and clothing application. When you skin-apply a product like Realm and (probably) Athena’s, which contain other steroidal material in addition to pheromones, there is always the chance of some entering the blood-stream and causing some mood elevation, and I have a feeling this medical-type effect is why Athena says you must apply their products directly to the skin. This may also be possible with some of the strong pheromone products like Primal too. I am not an MD and really don’t known. But mostly whether or not to skin apply is a matter of finances, and how “ripe” you want to get for the situation at hand. pheromones both natural and synthetic applied or otherwise adhering to clothing stay there a LONG time. I once was loaned a sweater worn by an old girlfriend of mine and always got a very warm feeling inhaling the fumes off of that thing. The effect lasted for months I think. On the other hand, you’d have to bury your nose in the material to get the full treatment. When you go to the gym and put a couple dabs or Primal behind your ears, it is gone in an hour or two, but where do you think it went! To a large extent, off into the atmosphere. You are giving off a lot of the scent at those times, and don’t need to apply much.

I am a big fan of DateMate and almost always apply it to my shirt collars, but I apply quite a bit. Once the alcohol has evaporated the pheromone scent is coming off into the room very slowly, and thusly lasts for quite a while, even through a couple of clothes washings.

Moral of the story? Experiment, experiment, experiment, and try new ideas!

THE NOSE VS. THE VNO
The battle continues
Bruce Boyd

Probably the most interesting thing about the relatively new science of pheromones, is that its existence represents the possibility of an entirely new or “sixth” sense. For centuries man has been aware that his connection with the world was limited to a mere five avenues of perception: sight, hearing, taste, touch, and smell. And now suddenly scientists are telling us: “Hey, we have a sixth sense.” That is big news. But, if the perception of pheromones represents a sixth sense, then it must utilize a clearly unique apparatus; something different than those through which we see, hear, taste, touch and smell. And indeed, the idea that we may be on to a new “sense,” is related to the discovery in both man and other mammals of just such a unique sensory organ in the nose known as the Vomeronasal Organ or VNO. Admittedly the VNO is much closer in function and location to our normal sense of smell, than it is to the organs with which we see, hear etc. but it is a separate system none the less, and even connects to a different part of the brain than does our normal smell sensing system. The VNO was discovered in animals as far back as the 1800s, and there has been enough credible research done on animals since then, that there is now little doubt that the perception of pheromones is an important factor in animal behavior and in most cases crucial for courtship and mating to occur. The discovery of the VNO in humans came much later however, and there has been quite a bit of controversy as to whether the organ actually functions in human beings or not. At present, though, I would hazard a guess that few among knowledgable scientists would deny the existence of the VNO in humans and that it at least has the capability to receive and transmit stimuli to the brain. How and to what extent those stimuli affect our behavior is still the subject of much arguing.

In the June, 2000 issue of the Pheromone News an article appeared which examined the results of some interesting research concerning the operation of the human VNO. The original study, Perfumery and the Sixth Sense, was performed by Clive Jennings-White at the University of Utah Department of Psychiatry, and was funded by the enormous pheromone cologne manufacturer, Erox Corp. (maker of the Realm colognes) The study used sophisticated electronic equipment attached directly to the VNO organ in human subjects, and was able to actually detect to what degree the organ was sending out signals toward the brain and thereby theoretically giving us a very handy instrument for measuring to what degree various fragrances and “pheromones” stimulate the VNO and in turn presumably affect our feelings and behavior.

Myself, I have always been of the mind that the very definition of the word “pheromone” decreed that a substance must be able to stimulate the VNO in order to be considered a true pheromone. Certainly the researchers involved with the Jennings/White study mentioned above feel this way, but recently I received a copy of a very interesting study from the great pheromone scholar and author James Kohl, that begs to differ. The title of the study is: Sensitivity and behavioral responses to the pheromone androstenone are *not* mediated by the vomeronasal organ in domestic pigs. (Whew! What a mouthful) It was conducted by Drs. Dorries KM, Adkins-Regan E, and Halpern BP at the Department of Psychology at Cornell University. Notice the emphasis I have applied to the word “not” in the above title. Probably one of the most dramatic (from a perfumers point of view anyway) demonstrations of the power of pheromones is in its effects on the mating behavior of domestic pigs. When an adult female pig gets a good whif of the male pheromone androstenone (also present in human sweat in great amounts by the way), she will adopt a certain “stance” shall we say and… well, let’s just say, it makes good ad text for pheromone marketers. Anyway, until I read this study however, I was under the distinct impression that this pheromone reaction was mediated entirely by the female pigs VNO, but these researchers are saying NOT mediated by the VNO. What gives, and how can they say that?

The experiment consisted of blocking off the VNO entirely using surgical glue and then measuring the behavior of these surgically altered pigs versus the normal, untreated or “control” pigs. In the words of the researchers here is what they found:

“Vomeronasal organ-blocked animals did not differ from untreated controls in either androstenone-mediated receptive standing behavior or attraction to the odor of androstenone. We conclude that in the domestic pig, the vomeronasal organ is not necessary for androstenone detection or androstenone-mediated sexual behavior in estrous females.”

So there you have it. pheromones are obviously having a very powerful effect on animal mating behavior. pheromones do in fact stimulate the VNO organ, but apparently they can take care of business through other chanels, presumably the nose, as well if the VNO is rendered useless. Hmmm….

Just in case, though, don’t forget to smile!

This day i got the pheromone additive it came with a free excite wipe. I used more of the wipe and a few drops of PA mixed with cologne. I had on a white tanktop since it was so hot, so i used the excite wipe on my arms. That day i had a class to go to, I got there and sat in my usual spot, I am a handsome guy, ladies are no problem but i say these sites and decided to see if it takes me farther, anyway I am sitting and this young lady who always flirted with me sat right next to me. then through the whole day she would just look up into my eyes and she couldn’t stop talking, I mean not in a way that she was tongue tied but she wanted to keep speaking just to interact with me in some way, now remember i said she flirted before but never like this! she was like a fan seeing Nsync or something! She kept touching my arms etc…and the whole time I am thinking “this stuff works!”

THE QUESTIONS (last month)
Please share what you know about any and all information systems and training programs that might be useful to readers in winning (in the larger sense) at the dating game.
NLP, self-hypnosis, subliminal tapes, positive thinking, meditation, prayer, magic spells… you name it, if it works for you, tell us about it. We want to know.

THE RESULTS:
Several folks wrote in to say that they felt all such approaches as mentioned in the survey question were either of no help or worse… heading in the wrong direction, and perhaps the very low survey response rate is an indication that many others of you feel the same way. On the other hand, some of the responses you will see below offer some hope that “self-help” programs can be of some assistance in finding and maintaining a healthy relationship.

Now have a look at the….

Selected highlights!

Being a novice in the dating field, I found the very best approach was simply to wait. About 3 or 4 years ago I developed an interest in Wicca because I thought casting love spells would assist me in discovering a mate; however, after many months of trying and having no success, I decided it was not the proper path. I have been told countless times by countless people that I have to like myself before others will like me. This approach didn’t quite work either – I’m no longer single but I’m still down on myself. After many years of unsuccessful attempts at getting a date, I more or less just gave up, until one day I saw a man and said to myself ‘I’m going to ask him out.’ It worked. So I would simply say just be yourself and don’t rely on gimmicks or prayers or anything of the sort, they don’t work.. and ladies, look for a date in the middle of the month, if you know what I mean.
—————
Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) is primarily a communication technology, originally developed for use by psychologists and psychiatrists. Yes, NLP can certainly be handy for dating. But NLP primarily teaches HOW people communicate (which, of course, will enable a person to communicate better with their intended “object person”.) NLP is also (and primarily) used to change embedded behavioral patterns that aren’t working for an individual. It is a “personal growth technology”~and an excellent one. Any books by Bandler and Grinder or Virginia (can’t remember her last name, but she is mentioned in Bandler & Grinder’s books) would be excellent. There’s one called “Frogs into Princes” that should be invaluable to people who are serious about having relationships that work. Speaking of which, for people who ARE serious about having good relationships, I highly recommend the books and workshops of John Gray. I did my workshops with him in Carmel, CA but I’m sure information can be found online. And for the definitive workshops in having healthy relationships, I recommend those by Terry Gorski. He actually “chunks it down” for you: Healthy Relationship vs Unhealthy Relationship. Excellent. If you want to get out of the “cycle of pain” of addictive, codependent, and toxic relationships, do Gorski’s workshops. If you’re already IN a relationship, do the workshops WITH your significant other, so that you will both be “armed” with the “information to win”.
Good Luck!
—————–
I see that you have heard of the NLP methods, you can go to www.seduction.com to learn more about it, it is a site by Ross Jeffries the leader in NLP for “bagging women!” This stuff works to when I can afford his expensive tapes I am going to use it in conjunction with the pheromones, cause I know those work too.
—————–
I think that it’s just cheating you and your potential mate to use NLP, self-hypnosis, subliminal tapes, positive thinking, meditation, prayer, magic spells… If the other person falls for you based upon someone that you aren’t, eventually your true demeanor will appear and then where will you be? In DIVORCE court. Just be yourself
—————–
In response to the survey, I have found that just being down to earth and natural is the real way to go. No books, tapes etc. If one is right within their self (with God), and project that feeling towards another human being, that should be the first area of communication between people. “Keep it Real”.
——————
When trying to get a date or even attend one I always find it a plus if I plan the whole evening in my head. Even if plans get interrupted your basic outlines for the evenings happenings make you seem cool and laid back. But be careful, still try and appear spontaneous at some moments. Always keep your cool. When you approach a girl just think to yourself all she can say is now. This confidence really helps, but watch out for being cocky.
——————
I’m not exactly a Romeo, so I’m not sure what this is worth, but: what has always worked best for me is openness and sincerity. You think she’s a knockout? Say so! You want to make love with her? Smile into her eyes and tell her so! Of course, getting close enough to say *anything* to her is always problematic; the “How To…” books definitely have some useful tips there. I’ve never tried the Ross Jeffries seduction techniques, though; they seem to me to be dehumanizing…
——————
Surely the ultimate win in the dating game is a happy lifelong marriage. Is there a way to predict whether it will last? My 20-year marriage was recently destroyed by my (now ex-) wife, so again I’m not sure I’m the best source of advice here, but: look at her (or his) parents and siblings. No, brothers and sisters don’t all turn out the same, but they all grew up in roughly the same environment, and were formed by the same influences. If the other siblings all had broken marriages, or if a parent was alcoholic, that tells you something about the likely fate of *your* relationship. Ignore it (as I did) at your peril…
——————-
I read somewhere that if you wanted to cast a love spell, all you had to do was get two candles, preferably red, and write your wish (such as “I wish to meet my soulmate”) and put them on a little table and every night you light the candles and say the wish. Who knows, maybe it works!
——————-
I’ve found that when I was trying to get this certain guy he didn’t want to be with me. Then I stopped trying and became his friend. Then he started to like me more. He fell in love with me and he said he wanted to marry me. I also use my eyes. The eyes are a very important thing. Don’t stare or glare. Just look at them like you are looking through them. I’ve been able to get alot of people with my eyes.
——————–
I have tried subliminal messages in tapes on women and the results have been mixed. Some women don’t do anything, but most others get excited. One woman even asked for the tape after listening to it for a while. One thing I noticed though, the messages are covered by jazz music. All the women who got the message enjoy jazz. So maybe it depends on if they like whats playing.
———————
Prayer often works for me as I am a follower of the ancient Trycrathian God of sex, Hortidias. I pray every Thurs. night during the 15 rotation of the “Zorphias” period of the moon at 6:42 PM (2nd waning period). The reason it’s at 6:42 PM and not at 6:00 PM is due to the difference and calendar and length of days compared to the Trycrathians. I find that after about two weeks of prayer for a specific female I will usually find her starting to notice me. But the difficult part is I have to have a lock of hair of the particular woman in question. Which can prove difficult, lol. I don’t know if you will believe me, as even my close friends don’t, but since you asked about anything that works for me, there you go. You will have a lot of trouble trying to research this, because it is an old secret society of ancient Assyria. I myself, would have never began the practice if it wasn’t for my family’s own library.
——————–
I get weekly messages from Lifeminders, however, I have found that the only dating tip that works for me, is to just be yourself. Typically, just being yourself is what draws women to you. They usually like the honesty of character and No Bullshit situations better than having to figure out if a guy is just another scalawag. However, since I am currently VERY single, who should listen to me?
———————–
I believe the most useful resource we have when it comes to one on one communication is honesty. If we are honest with ourselves, then we project a more positive self image, which gives us the the confidence we need to be honest with others. When we feel good about ourselves, others are drawn to us. Trust me, I spent years with low self esteem, doubting my self and my intentions. After lots of self analysis, and many unhappy times, I started thinking more positive thoughts, appreciating the beauty in all things, and SMILING. You would be amazed at the difference it has made in my life and the others around me. Never underestimate the power of a smile, it’s the most contagious thing we have ever encountered.
———————–
I personally have never used any of these methods. I’ve always found that just being natural and yourself without any mumbo-jumbo is the best route to winning “the dating game.”
——————–
I think the biggest thing people need to do to improve their dating game is love themselves. I would try to find “the right person” and nothing was working. I took on a new attitude and everything changed. I found myself and realized that I have to love myself before someone else will love me back. I was living for me when I found my now husband. I am a true believer that you should love yourself and love will then come to you. Happiness is contagious, if you are happy it will make others happy. If you love yourself it will make others love you more. You can’t promote a product you don’t love. Think about it!

pheromone Q&A

Q: I’m kind of worried that these pheromones are similar to drugs. You need to use them always to get girls. What happens when you stop using them? Will your girlfriend stop loving you?

A: Good question! I like to compare them more to vitamins than to drugs, but pheromones do seem to create a “high” of some sort, and not only on the target but on the person wearing them. In fact, one very famous pioneer in the commercial pheromone industry emphatically claims that the magic of pheromones is 100% due to their effect on the wearer NOT the person you are trying to attract. I can personally testify to this effect of “getting off on your own pheromones.” I often apply unscented androstenone pheromone to my shirt collars and in idle moments press my nose to the fragrant spot and inhale deeply. There is definitely an energizing effect there, no question about it. If you want to see a VERY funny movie bit on this, check out the hysterical film “A Fish Named Wanda” with Kevin Cline. Very funny!

There is quite a bit of research that shows that pheromones and hormones are linked; that is when one goes up the other goes up as well. They play off of each other. Now whether it is a good idea to add to the fire with store-bought pheromones, I can not say. I am not a doctor. If I were a teenager, I probably wouldn’t bother with them. The average person’s hormones and pheromones are running wild at this time already, but from the 20s onward pheromone levels are dropping off like crazy, and you can see the effects on your sex life. As far as “will your girlfriend stop loving you”, anyone that has been married can tell you that “love” and chemical attraction are two very different things. Keeping the fire in your romance is an ongoing effort. Again, maybe it is better to just let nature take its course and get old gracefully, I don’t know. It is a personal decision, but there is no reason to think that pheromones are addictive in the sense that you develop a tolerance to them or that using artificial pheromones will shut off your own production of them. Personally, I think there is evidence that pheromones are “good for you” and set off a healthy spiral of increased confidence and romantic activity and thus a generally more healthy lifestyle.

One last thought on this subject….. Almost anything can become obsessive if you let it. One example is make-up. The use of make-up is a personal thing for women, and it can be a lot of fun and can also be very effective in attracting men, BUT it can also become a terrible weight if a woman feels that she can’t be seen without it. Being romantically “involved” with someone implies that you know what they look like without their make-up, and what they smell like without their cologne (or even a bath for that matter). Hopefully once you find Mr. or Miss “Right” you can settle into a comfortable agreement on the use of these little romantic aids, and that goes for everything doesn’t it…. candles, sexy underwear, incense, soft lights and on and on. You can get stuck on any of them, can’t you?

The pheromone Blueprint and its Utility in Mate Selection
Bruce Boyd

This article was inspired by an interesting experiment conducted in Switzerland by the zoologist, Claus Wedekind. It brings up an important point about pheromones that is usually overlooked by the public. On the fragrance market today there are only a handful of specific pheromone ingredients used, while in the laboratory several hundred human pheromones have been isolated so far. It also stands to reason that countless thousands more will be discovered in the future. What does this mean? It means that pheromones are not just something that a particular person has a lot of, and which therefore makes him/her more popular with everybody. Each and every individual has his/her own unique pheromone blueprint or “signature” as the scientist, James Kohl (pheromones.com) calls it. This personal pheromone collage in all probability gives those around us an accurate and complete picture of who and what we are without even opening their eyes, perhaps a more accurate impression than is available via the sense of sight. I wouldn’t be surprised if at sometime in the future, law enforcement authorities were able to identify criminals on the basis of “pheromoone-prints” left at the scene of a crime. In a horrifying scene in the movie “Leon”, a super-villain drug lord is able to “smell” that one of his dealers is lying to him, and there is little doubt left in the viewers mind that his ability is accurate.

But if these pheromone signals are real, and we are really broadcasting all our deepest secrets for all the world to see, how are they being picked up? Is it really via the sense of smell? Well, until recently, the overwhelming feeling among pheromone researchers was that pheromone signals are picked up by an entirely separate apparatus from those used to pick up smells. It is called the VNO, and all indications are that the VNO/pheromone system is worthy of being referred to as a new sense, perhaps the long sought after “sixth sense”. Even though I sincerely believe in the therapeutic and social value of the pheromone products that are available on the market today, it is clear that they represent a paltry offering compared to what is on the horizon for pheromone technology in the future.

The Wedekind study is interesting because it specifically deals with this pheromone blueprint, the relationship it has with an individual’s immune system type, and the ability of the human VNO to give us reliable information about others around us.

The experiment:
Male subjects were given a t-shirt and instructed to wear it to bed on two consecutive nights. The subjects were also given scentless soap and other toilet articles and told to use them only. At the end of this period all the t-shirts were put into boxes and rated by female subjects on the basis of smell alone. Some boxes were filled with new t-shirts to act as controls.

The results:
Female subjects preferred the boxes containing t-shirts that had been worn by males with dissimilar immune systems as rated by an MHC test. Many women said that the smells reminded them of old boy-friends, while shirts worn by men with similar immune systems reminded them of male family members.

From an evolutionary point of view, this phenomenon needs little explanation. It has long been noted that breeding within a large gene pool, where the chance of dissimilar gene-types mating increases, results in superior offspring, while the opposite conditions, often referred to as “inbreeding” has been shown to bring unfortunate results. The Windekind experiment seems to indicate that without knowing why, women prefer to mate with men with dissimilar immune systems, thereby increasing the chance of producing healthy offspring and can make this decision entirely on the basis of sensing the potential mate’s pheromone blueprint.

Just in case, don’t forget to smile!

Survey/Contest time!

THE AUGUST SURVEY QUESTION:
Well, I got a record low response to last month’s survey, but I am going to push my luck and continue in a somewhat similar vein anyway. I think most folks felt that last month’s survey was geared to tricks for helping “hook” a partner. While that was not exactly what I had in mind anyway, the best of what did come in last month offered some very good references to books and workshops that might be useful to folks looking to make their relationships (present and future) more “healthy”, so to say, so if you have any such useful references, here is your chance!

***************
THE QUESTION: What books, seminars, and/or other resources can you recommend to readers that might help them enrich their current relationships or modify their approach to dating in such a way as to increase their success in future relationships?

THE QUESTIONS (for June!)

Natural pheromones and personal hygiene
You may have heard the famous pheromone quote attributed to Napoleon, in a letter to his beloved: “My dear, I will be home in three days. Do not bathe.”
Hmmm????????????
What is your 2 cents on natural pheromones vs. personal hygiene?
Do you like your partner’s “natural aroma?”
When is enough enough?
Gotta be squeaky clean?

THE RESULTS:
In a show-down, it looks like squeaky wins over “ripe”, but feelings swing both ways, and somewhere in the middle was popular with folks who seem to have seen (smelled) it all.

Now have a look at the….

Selected highlights!
———————————-
Advice from men to women:

In my eyes the natural clean scent of a woman is sexy….. Most women put on way to much scent.

Personally, I love the smell of a lightly perfumed freshly bathed woman. Clean smells great! Even the smell of a nicely scented soap on a woman. Woman’s hair is a great smell as is a nice perfume on the neck and arms!

Natural pheromones versus personal Hygiene, that is a great topic. Where should we draw the line? Well, I think there is a big difference between smelling natural and being unhygienic. We all know pheromone are in our sweat and urine, but that does not necessary mean putting sweat and urine on our selves would make us attractive to the opposite sex. I used to have a girl friend that sleeps over at my place once or twice a week, she usually takes a shower before she goes to bed. I find that she smell really nice at around two to three O’clock in the morning, it’s about four hours after she have showered.

I prefer the smell of natural aroma over perfume sometimes, especially during love making. It sure beats the smell of strong fragrance, somehow making love with a person wearing perfume just doesn’t feel very natural. I personally shower twice a day with soaps and shampoo that have light scents.

Advice to the ladies, the sexiest smell is a five to six hour old natural aroma. It is good to wear perfume during a date but before love making you should take a warm shower and build up that sexy natural aroma of yours. Smell of strong fragrance is often a turn off during sex, while a natural or light scent is a turn on.

I feel that natural is good but how do you control it? How do you get just the right blend. My partner is a the squeaky type. I feel that we as a group are becoming more visual and less olfactory and that the giant machine that tells us what to think is very busy selling the idea that to smell is a bad thing. Constant bathing though exciting isn’t that good for the largest organ of the body. (The Skin)

I find that if a girl doesn’t take a shower and hasn’t done anything strenuous, it’s fine. Haven’t really noticed an overtly sexual undertone about it, but it’s not all that big a deal either. OF course, to me, a freshly bathed woman is more attractive. However, I have heard of the fact that some cultures forbid their women from taking baths for this very reason.

Because men are so visual, I think it doesn’t really matter what a woman wears. Certainly doesn’t with me…

Women need to smell clean to me. If I’ve been dating a women and know her well I don’t mind if she has fresh sweat. That is also a turn on, but she needed to shower that day and start fresh. Then a workout, with sweat is good. Perfume is also great of coarse. An attractive women walking passed me leaving her smell in the air for me to inhale excites me.

I think the natural scent of a person can both be good or awful; this depends on many causes: emotional states (it’s common to hear that animals smell fear); what someone has just eaten (onion smell reaches the skin) Besides this, bacteria transform sweat producing awful tastes. So it’s better a shower, not to risk too much

I have always found to women to be more attractive and certainly appealing with only a hint of ‘perfume’ — provided its a good quality perfume . It takes a certain type of women who knows how to pick perfume that suits there style body type , skin tone , etc. Now the clincher is ,when a woman’s perfume is gone from sweat and body odor begins to emerge I in turn get really excited with the body odor . I could literally taste the odor . Being of Asian decent and my girlfriend is Cuban ( Latina ) she prefers little make up and very little cologne ( she actually uses my Cologne by Aramis Tuscany ). I still cannot understand about Cuban women , they love daily sex — whether you have taken shower or not they want sex . I feel as long as they brush their teeth , fresh breath , — clean ‘beaver’ , bathe or unbathed — I still consider it a turn on , I function in most primitive level.

I like a woman when she’s squeaky clean. But I also like the look and smell of a woman with a light glisten of sweat. Besides, taking a shower together to wash off the sweat is very arousing as well!

Napoleon’s request was a little over the top. While a woman’s scent can be spell-binding, too much of anything can become a quick turn-off. This is especially true for women that wear perfume. Natural pheromones are more pleasing than artificial perfumes, but should only be noticeable in very close proximity; such as hugging. The scent of a person at close proximity is intriguing, but if I know a woman’s personal aroma from across the room, I become overwhelmed and don’t want to get any closer. There’s no mystery to discover at that point. Of course a woman’s scent isn’t nearly as appealing if it’s not accompanied by a good attitude and friendly hospitality.

Like Bruce has stated, natural pheromones vs. personal hygiene has more to do with culture than with personal preference. In some cultures, natural pheromones are considered a turn-on, where in some cultures, not showering everyday is considered disgusting. I am in the second list. I do not prefer the scent of women who have not bathed in more than 24 hours or have just finished playing a game of basketball. I prefer that just-showered, clean-clothes, and a-spray-or-two-of-nice-perfume smell. This is not surprising, because I live in America, and have for my entire life. So have my parents. I also act the same way. If I go out in public, I feel that I have be clean and smell good.

I like to smell a soft sweet aroma emulating from my lovers body with just a touch of natural body scent. The mixture of the two create the perfect balance between erotic and primal in the atmosphere.

I am male, and I’ve noticed that when women shower more after I tend to think about sex less when I am around them.

Even if one has more natural pheromones if they don’t bathe for a few days, I don’t think that the pheromones would be strong enough to cover up the scent of dirt, oil, and sweat. I think that the pheromones found in products such as Primal Instinct and pheromone Additive are a great solution because you get the best of both worlds: a clean, fresh smell, and the seductive power of pheromones.

I think [on the subject of Natural vs Hygiene] there should be [and for me there is] a happy medium. Do you like your partner’s “natural aroma?” Yes, sure, I love my partners “natural aroma”, but, like most things, there has to be some common sense added to this equation. When is enough enough? Enough is enough would be, say, if she just spent a hard day [all day] putting up fences in the north forty, [in 95 degree heat] comes home, doesn’t shower or freshen up, and wants to wrestle. I’m here to tell ya, “it ain’t gonna happen!” Gotta be squeaky clean? No, absolutely not, but not sweatin’ like a pig either.

Everyone is different, I dated one girl who used to shower, put on baby oil and then talc, she still smelled good. [I could readily detect her natural odor beneath] And it wasn’t a “stanky” one either. On the other hand I’ve dated women who I wouldn’t consider bedding unless the had bathed recently. Ultimately, it’s a matter of personal taste and preference, a really strong odor can be a turnoff, but there has to be at least a suggestion of ‘natural’ odor or you might not get turned on.

———————————-
Advice from women to men:

Personal hygiene is a must in my book; who wants to be close to someone who appears and or smells “dirty”…if you showered in the morning and just came home from a grueling day, and want to get romantic, shower again, and then get close. And if you use any cologne or after shave, be careful how much you use, too much of a good thing isn’t good.

I like my partner’s natural aroma if he is clean, but if he has been through heavy physical activity, I would prefer that he showered before we get close. When is enough enough? Enough is when an unpleasant body odor over rides any other aroma. Gotta be squeaky clean? Clean is good…showering together can make it even better.

I think a person should be clean. However, when in the throes of passion, sweating and releasing one’s personal “scent” can be very exciting. I was married to a man who bathed less frequently than I thought he should. It turned me off. Now I am with a man who can come home from the gym and I get instantly turned on by his scent. I suppose it is all a matter of chemistry.

If I had to choose, I would prefer exceptional personal hygiene over natural pheromones any day. But, in retrospect, there is some degree of tolerance when speaking about natural pheromones and their affect on my mood and environment. What I mean is that sometimes natural pheromones being emitted from my male partner is acceptable and even enjoyable–e.g. during times of sexual activity, play time, or even right after work–before the personal hygiene regimen. Leave the natural sweat and odors after a work-out in the gym/locker room shower, guys– those natural pheromones may just be too overwhelming for any one! It is alright on occasion to skip the weekend shower and go “au natural” as long as the unpleasant sensations do not overshadow the pleasure!

In my female opinion, I have always noticed a man who had a terrific smell, usually his cologne. Of course, as you mentioned, that could just be a “Pavlov” response. Furthermore, I agree that folks in the US probably do more harm than good with the obsession with personal hygiene. Being clean is good; being extremely clean is not. Our bodies do lose their unique scents when too clean and that lessens others’ attraction to us. Which country is known for its romance? It’s France. Which country is known for stringent hygiene? It’s France, again. The correlation between the two should be obvious to anyone!

Do you like your partner’s “natural aroma?” Not really. As odd as it may seem, I am very revolted by his “natural aroma” – he reminds me of a wet dog that’s been left to its own for several weeks.

No cologne is ok sometimes, especially if the guy is wearing clean clothes fresh out of the laundry. But too much cologne is sickening; it makes me want to scream “If you’d bathe once in a while, you wouldn’t have to drench yourself with that synthetic fetor!” (but I am guessing very few of the people I am acquainted with would know what the word “fetor” means)

Gotta be squeaky clean?
Definitely. When the scent of soap and shampoo and clean clothing comingle with a good natural aroma, it’s perfect.

Bathe.

My partner smells fantastic to me. I actually prefer him to be somewhat less than squeaky clean – *he’s* sexy, not soap. I happily sniff him as often as I can and find myself reacting in “that way” when I come across his scent on the pillow or on clothing he’s worn.

I like my partner’s natural aroma, prefer not freshly bathed, although I wouldn’t turn him down in any case. Not filthy either, but then, he’s never that.

My advice? Unless you’re a construction or dairy worker, keep bathing down to every other day at most. Don’t marinate in cologne.

Yes, i like his personal, natural aroma, because it is so distinctly “him”…

Gotta be squeaky clean? I prefer squeaky clean, but if he isn’t, it doesn’t stop me….

Personally I think hygiene is important to everyone, but not something someone needs to get all crazy about. A person who doesn’t take care of themselves one bit will deff’nly be less appealing than the person who is well groomed, but I have known a few people who were so anal about how they looked,smelled,ect.. that it seemed to have the same effect. A good balance is what I like, as long as someone showers once a day and you don’t get a gag reflex when around said person then it’s perfectly fine, sadly my sense of smell is pretty damn bad and I cant comment on the partners aroma to much, if I can smell it clearly then its pro’lly way to much,whatever it is! Oh, and the not bathing for three days? nuh-uh!

I don’t care for the smell of perfumes and colognes at all. However, a very subtle scent of an essential oil makes me want to go up and sniff the person more closely.

I enjoy a person’s natural aroma, but not if it has turned to rank B.O. Heavy meat eaters usually smell too ‘gamey’ and pungent for me. A day after a shower is a good ripening time, unless the person is unhealthy and eliminating toxins through their skin.

I think that a clean smell is the best smell. I can’t imagine a worse smell than sweat and dirt on a guy’s body. I know that they say that washing gets rid of your natural pheromones, but I don’t really believe that anything that smells that bad could be attractive. If they aren’t really dirty, then it would be fine.

For some reason I get more frisky when my man gets out of the shower and then puts on some type of cologne versus his after workout smell. I feel that a guy who smells nice is more attractive.

Hi, I think cleanliness is next to Godliness!! If he doesn’t smell clean to me he is definitely not getting in my bed for any reason!! I don’t particularly like him to smell of soap but I do want him to smell fresh not sweaty. I’ll make him sweaty if he gets in my bed. but then that is a whole different type of sweaty smell. I just want him clean and fresh starting off. Nothing is more of a turn off to me than a nasty smelling man or one who is dirty especially around his private parts, in other words no head cheese please!!!!

pheromone Q&A

Q: Are there times when pheromones are stronger or more obvious than others? Could a woman being aroused have an effect on the pheromones being stronger, or the scent being more detected?
-Machel

Dear Machel,
Yes, without a doubt, and especially so with women. In men, pheromones are expressed mainly via sweat which increases quite a bit during sex, but in women they are also heavily present in vaginal secretions, which of course, are in much greater abundance during sexual stimulation. Also, sexual stimulation can be very accurately measured by blood levels of testosterone in both males and females. That means that when either men or women are stimulated testosterone levels rise, and this in turn almost certainly increases the production of the two known testosterone-related pheromones, androstenone and androstenol.

So, a big yes. During sex a pheromone tornado is created feeding greater levels of excitement which in turn feed greater pheromone production. Like a nuclear reaction!
—————————————-
Q: I have been victimized by one of the cheat Love Scent pheromone Store sites!!! [address deleted, but similar to love-scent.com] They charged me at $1479.00 !!! I don’t know what to do. Please help me. How can I take my money back? Please help.

A: You have definitely been hit by an illegal site. The e-mail address you mention “xciteusa@aol.com” is the address of a real-estate agent in Sarasota FL (USA), who wrote me some months ago pretending to be the representative of a UK company, selling Xcite pheromone Wipes. He swindled me out of over $4,000. and copied the entire Love Scent pheromone Store website and made the bootleg site that you were hit by. This is against both US and international copyright laws and recent US “Cybersquatting” legislation, as well as criminal fraud for taking your money and refusing to send you the product you ordered.

If you paid via credit card, it is very easy to get your money back, though. Just telephone your bank and tell them you got hit by an internet scam artist. They will reverse the charge for you.

pheromones, Attraction and the Performing Arts
Bruce Boyd
Reprinted from PRIN, May, 1999

Review of “Whose pheromone are You?” by Tom Clark originally published in World Medicine magazine in July of 1978.
In scanning the internet for Pheromone News articles the same ones keep popping up over and over. In fact, sometimes it seems like they were all written from the same 5 or 6 press releases. Running into “Whose pheromone are You” by the British researcher Tom Clark was a pleasant surprise. Although it was published in a medical journal, it is full of fun and creative interpretations of its loosely compiled “data.” There doesn’t seem to be a truly controlled study to be found, and he himself refers to this work as “art” rather than “science”. I myself love to see the results of the strictly controlled scientific studies come in with their verdict, but articles like this one open up whole new ways of thinking about pheromones and what they can do. Also keep in mind that the original article was written over twenty years ago!

Every now and then I find a reference to a study done in a public theater, demonstrating that women will unconsciously prefer seats that have been sprayed with male sex pheromones, and apparently I have finally found the source. The experiments featured here were conducted by Clark, who had already done similar tests on unsuspecting patients in a hospital waiting room, Matthew Guiness, an actor with the Royal Shakespeare Company who had produced a late night “pheromone happening” experiment at the famous RSC, and Robin Klassnic, an artist who had experimented with the effects of pheromone sprays on visitor traffic at art exhibitions.

The trio booked the Gulbenkian Studio Theater in Newcastle, UK for their experiment on the attractive power of pheromones. First they observed the usual flow of traffic in the theater to see which seats would normally fill up first, and then sprayed certain seats with pheromones to see if they could alter the standard flight pattern. They also sprayed a portion of the programs to see if that might affect their being selected for purchase. The results were interesting. In Clark’s words: “It had worked much better than we dared hope.” The seats on the side balconies which had remained empty during the control (no spray) performances, were now filled and mainly with women, after having been sprayed with pheromones. The researchers were initially disappointed that all the programs both sprayed and unsprayed had sold out before the concert, as that upset the other variable that they had hoped to measure (which programs were selected for purchase), but on a hunch, after the performance was over, the many programs left behind in the theater were examined, and not a single sprayed program could be found. They had all been taken home by their owners, while the unsprayed ones had largely been abandoned.

Rock Concert Mania?

Clark goes on to speculate about some even more “exciting” pheromone phenomena: “If you observe the crowds at rock concerts you can see pheromones at work.” He claims that the level of hysteria at a rock concert is controlled by the type of ventilation in the concert hall!

“If the air currents in a concert hall move from the stage to the audience, the excitement is literally carried from performers to fans. That is why a concert at the Hammersmith Odeon works up the crowds more than one at the Festival Hall, where extractors move the air the other way. Most of the big successful closed theaters have air conditioning circulating air from the front to back and make ideal pop venues.” “The new National Theater, like the Royal Festival Hall, has all round ducted air conditioning. Actors there are said to feel a sense of isolation from the audiences — a sense they never felt at the Old Vic. The cool unemotional atmosphere of these places is OK for classical music or Ibsen, but deadens emotion.”

But that’s not all! Clark says that researchers have carefully examined the theater seats occupied by young girls following rock concerts and found that they had been dampened with vaginal secretions by these “girls in orgasm” as he calls them. AND…(I am not making this up!)…he says that from examining these secretions scientists can speculate that a large percentage of the young women had synchronized their menstrual cycles during the weeks of anticipation of the event, stimulated by TV and newspaper ads and were ovulating on the night of the concert! He further supports this with the fact that the evidence for a statistically normal percentage of menstruating women, which can usually be found in the women’s restrooms is completely absent at rock concerts. Other studies apparently support this theory: “It has been noticed that after pop concerts girls often show menstrual disruption, and their periods become irregular.” says Clark. The system which controls menstruation (pituitary gonadotrophins) appears to be “upset by rock concerts as well as leaving home or changing jobs, and is possibly triggered by the presence of new, or strange *male smells.*” Clark also points out that five of the girls that worked in the theater where the pheromone experiment was carried out had had their menstrual cycles disrupted.

In the words of Tom Clark himself:
“Can one call it an experiment? Ludwig Wittgenstein tells us we can arrive only at an approximation of the truth whatever we do, and however we do it. Thus a scientific approach is limited by its language of controls and double blind techniques; double talk indeed. The theater however is a place of much greater flexibility of human expression than the laboratory. In the theater, miracles can happen, and marvels and magic are everyday means of expression often performed twice nightly.”

“But it did work. It worked in public. It doesn’t amount to a scientific paper but a few hundred people witnessed it. Human pheromones, we maintain, do exist. If you don’t believe it, ask the Royal Shakespeare Company to show you sometime.”

Just in case, don’t forget to smile!

Survey/Contest time!

THE JULY SURVEY QUESTION:

The Mental Game of Dating
Lately on the pheromone Forum (link on the love-scent.com home page) there has been quite a bit of discussion about the effectiveness and ethics of various books and electronic publications dedicated to dating’s social strategies. I myself went and downloaded an online e-book on NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) on the recommendation of one of the forum members. Does it work? Can it make us more “attractive?” Can it help us find a mate? What do you think?

Some months back we conducted a survey on “breaking the ice.” Let’s take it a step further. Where can we learn what to say “after you say ‘hello.'”

****Survey Question****
Please share what you know about any and all information systems and training programs that might be useful to readers in winning (in the larger sense) at the dating game. NLP, self-hypnosis, subliminal tapes, positive thinking, meditation, prayer, magic spells… you name it, if it works for you, tell us about it. We want to know.

Bruce,
This is my third purchase of your products. I am a cook at a local Denny’s restaurant in Naples, Florida. On the graveyard shift we tested your products not so much to pick up a date as to influence the clientele into better tips.

Results: We are in the off season. My server who uses this product is making more tips, larger tips than he, did during the winter season. This is a money maker for restaurant service personal.
