    Default Researchers find chemosignal that encourages women's sexual desire

    visit-red-300x50PNG
    From a study of women who were breast feeding:

    "...women with regular partners

    experienced a 24 percent increase in sexual desire as reported on a standard psychological survey. Women without

    partners experienced a 17 percent increase in sexual fantasies after exposure for the

    period."

    http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releas...-rfc100604.php

    The entire issue

    of Hormones and Behavior is focussed on the sense of smell, hormones, and

    behavior.

    I think it has to do with oxytocin.

    Breastfeeding women are likely

    to have higher concentrations of lactobacillus acidophilus, breve, and bifida strains on their skin (as are

    infants), which could be a co-factor in producing the purported breast-feeding pheromone in the armpit. So we don't

    know yet that it comes from their fresh sweat, per se. I'm ready to buy a barrel of the stuff,

    whatever it is; or bribe my lactating friends to let me rub my head under their arms. For species survival purposes,

    it makes sense that babies, particularly well nourished ones, would lead to more babies, for a couple of reasons.

    The pendulous human female breasts

    are actually modified apocrine (scent/pheromone-producing) glands. The breasts originate in the axillae (underarm).

    I have proposed that pendulous female breast development was required as humans lost fur, which traps and amplifies

    some very important chemical signals in other mammals. The development of pendulous female breasts would compensate

    for hair/fur loss by providing increased area both for production and distribution.

    The only other theory

    that I know about for the development of pendulous breasts is one attributed to Desmond Morris, who apparently

    thinks that they developed to mimic the fleshy buttocks (as men needed a better/comparable visual signal when sexual

    intercourse became a frontal approach event).

    Compare the two theories--one visually based with no biological

    basis; the other based on olfactory conditioning with the completely detailed pathway from gene activation to

    hormonal changes that influence behavior.

    If you guys remember Commercaire

    from Enhanced Air Technoligies, it was the phermone system marketed to Casinos and stores to keep people inside

    longer. The first article I read about it said the pheromone was based on female breast pheromones to recreate the

    comfort of breastfeeding as an infant.
    Funny they never found the same result.

    Interesting. Can you find the article or reference it?

    I found the article again.

    Looks like I misread it the first time. Here's the quote I was thinking of.

    Yesterday, the company

    unveiled Commercaire pheromone, its synthetic compound that mimics the maternal sense of comfort piped to

    children when they're crying or otherwise unhappy.

    Filtered into a store through air ducts or a small fan under

    the cashier's desk, for example, the odorless substance is meant to relax customers so they stay longer, and buy

    more.

    However, Nigel Malkin, the upstart firm's director of development, is quick to note that the pheromone

    will only put customers at ease, not force them to do anything against their will.

    "It doesn't put people into a

    buying frenzy or anything like that," he said. "This will just make them feel more relaxed and give them a fond

    memory of the environment they've been exposed to. That can breed customer loyalty."
