    Default are pheromones drugs? Re:argument

    On

    another discussion board, there was a thread on pheromones that came up. The poster who started it was quickly

    double-teamed by two guys who at first didn't believe pheromones worked. After a while, the poster who started the

    thread posted links to scientific articles via James Kohl's site. Then the poster was still double teamed. The

    two guys attacking the other one are very anti-pheromone and they have said that using pheromones are equivalent to

    using date rape drugs or dropping something else in a woman's drink without her knowing. They seem to be beating

    the crap out of the other guy who insists that pheromones are not drugs and are not the equivalent of using date

    rape drugs. I find the conversation interesting because I've never heard that pheromones are drugs. One of the

    posters there said that pheromones have been classified by the FDA as drugs.

    Neither do I consider them drugs.

    There is a guy on the another discussion board who has stated that the FDA has classified them as

    drugs.

    definition of drugs.

    Glue and paint are other

    substances that classifies as drugs if properly inhaled, but that doesn't say that it's illegal to cover yourself

    in glue if you think that makes you a "chick magnet"

    I'll quickly add that pheromones already exists

    naturally in your body sweat and urine so it makes no sense to talk about drugs when you can actually produce the

    same results with a big workout, avoid showering.

    Let the non believers think what they will. Besides what are

    they doing discussing things they don't believe in, and if they don't believe it works how come they think it's a

    drug?

    No more deceptive then fake boobs , short skirts , high heels

    , lipstick , blusher.

    The last two are designed to enforce the image thats shes turned on by you. Think about it

    , what happens to a womans body when you make love? She blushes and her lips get full because she's sexually

    excited.
    Make up artists claim it enforces a youthfull (mateable?) look , I belive it has to do with an

    evolutionary urge. We all want a healthy mate , hence "make up" to "prove" their worthyness to carry on the gene

    pool.


    Holy crap, don't expect another answer like that for a while...






    Later.

    JV Kohl ,
    Are you working on any further products we may be interested in? I'm a big

    fan of SOE so just wondering if you anything more planned for future release?

    In my personal

    experience, many times the `mones actually give me more of the freedom needed to truly act different. It's not

    deception - It actually does somewhat changes the person wearing them.
    Well I guess it wouldn't be like

    that for everyone, but for me personally - when I wear the right amount of `none & `nol mixture - it actually makes

    me feel more responsible, and more self-confident... even when I'm just alone at home for no one to judge.



    Besides... I also support the lipstick claim that gaf suggests.


    P.S.
    JVK, I read that paragraph you linked

    and haven't understood half of what it says there. Does it have something to do with pheromones or just steroids?

    I apologize for linking without thinking. The connection between

    steroids and pheromones is that some steroids metabolize to species-specific pheromones, which then alter the

    production of steroids in other members of the same species. This link, from their effect on steroid hormones in

    others, is also the link from pheromones to their affect on the behavior of others.

    I think that more people

    may need to learn about steroid hormone metabolism before they can determine which pheromone-enhanced products might

    actually benefit them.

    I'm not sure that if I had to do it all over again, I would start the learning

    process.

    Thanks for the

    explanation JVK. I can't say I fully understand all the implications that link might have on the topic of `mones

    vs. rape-drugs. But I surely do understand the basic idea now that you've explained it

    I assumed steroids

    might have a link with pheromones, but I didn't wanna rush into any conclusions.
    Now I better understand it... I

    think

    So would it be right to say that by using `mones we might sometimes affect the steroid production

    &\or steroid behaviour in other people? And if so, do you (personaly) think it has any moral implications?
    I'm

    not asking for a profesional opinion, as I recon that might be a tough nut to crack... Anyone who has a personal

    opinion on the moral implications of the topic - feel free to answer the parts of my question you can

    Yes, but I'm also waiting to

    see whether recent research findings will be published in a reputable scientific journal.

    Thanks for your interest. Any future release is most likely to come directly from my

    domain.

    Default The morality of using Mones. Rubbish

    Using

    mones is the equivalent of wearing a Rolex watch or flashing the key to a fancy car. Women can sift through the

    bullshit and see the real person. Good or bad. Sexy or nerdy.

    It is the same as a woman wearing cosmetics or a

    push-up bra. We are just looking for a way to set ourselves apart from the crowd.

    The first thing that

    catched my attention was that those two guys attacked the poster because (they believe) pheromones DO NOT work, but

    then they attacked the poster because now they believe pheromones in fact DO WORK. They even go as far as to call it

    a date rape drug.
    So it's like no matter what weather it is, it still sucks.
    It seems to me it was more a matter

    of personal things and emotions than rational thinking.
    Now the topic about pheromones as a date rape drugs is

    worth a few more additional words.
    For some reason I remembered red womans lingerie. I mean just how many helpless

    guys where lured in by using it! Isn't it a date rape drug? You know, sometimes you still have to spend some time

    experimenting with mones and mixing them before you can get even close to it!

    I dont think 'mones are

    equavlent to date rape drug. 'mone doesnt seem to work on everyone. Personally I think it does work, only each

    individual responds differently to 'mones. Some may be more sensitive (to one particular 'mon or all) and some may

    not. Everyone's reaction to 'mone also varies depending on when, where, how we apply the 'mones, and our own

    characteristics and personalities.

    To me, (though 'mone didnt seem to work on me 3 years ago) I think the

    'mones work like aromas products. We know certain aromas (scent, oil, or any product that contain certain aromas)

    help people to clam and relax, some excite, some help to focus...etc.
    I believe by inhaling 'mones scent it work

    on us (each at different level) somehow like aroma scent did.
    There is also psychological impact on what we

    believe or expect 'mones to do for us base on reading from all these informations or posts about 'mones on the

    internet.

    tenaciousBLADE, what you wrote about the girl who felt you were deceiving her by using the

    'mones...somehow it remind me of those voo-doo dools or whatever love spell :P
    Is EQ the way of covering-up one's incompetence?
    Or is IQ the method of showing off one's insignificance?"

    Talking

    Thanks JVK
    Those were

    valuable pieces of info right there
    I tend to agree with what you say about the extention, of natural

    tools of our body, not being deceptive

    wanted to attract her and used these... "love-spells" lol
