Chikara Pheromones Rise Above the Competition Comments Off on Chikara Pheromones Rise Above the Competition

Our day to day lives is hectic as the people worry endlessly about their finances, their successes and failures, and their ability to balance their love life. Living has become more and more difficult so when products like Chikara come along, you need to grab the goat by the horns and give yourself a leg up. Chikara is the name of one of the indigenous four-horned goat antelopes in Nepal and parts of India (catch that reference!). Chikara pheromones are a brand of human pheromones that can be used in the same manner as perfume or cologne.

Pheromones are defined as a chemical substance, a form of stimuli, produced by an animal to create a behavioral response. Chikara pheromones are from an animal, the chikara also known as “chousingha”, are one of the more popular pheromones for the main reason that it carries three main stimuli androstenone, androstenol, and androsterone. The hormones pique the interest of the female gender and “push” the carrier of said scent to act or at the very least appear in a dominant manner. The attractiveness of the scent originates in the base emotions it affects such as increasing arousal and heightening the atmosphere into a friendlier more comfortable state.

Understanding how to use Chikara pheromones properly is very important. The pheromone should be used very sparingly and in certain places on the body. For example, good places to place the pheromone is on the neck, underneath the arm, and even around the pelvis area. Sometimes, putting it in the wrong place can even cause the opposite effect if any at all. Using the scent lies in the experimentation and whether you believe it works. Use sparingly and be aware of the results when you wear Chikara. Most people will find that it is very effective and can work wonders with the opposite sex!

Where and When are Pheromone Parties Comments Off on Where and When are Pheromone Parties

Pheromone parties are on the rage and are becoming more and more talked about. These parties capture much interest, as to some, they fall under the categories of being extremely unusual or taboo and maybe even weird. Whether it is interesting or just weird, these parties have received much publicity in recent years. So what is it all about? Well, firstly, Pheromones are chemicals that are released from the body, which influences another person’s behavior and even their moods. This chemical is usually discussed in reference to creatures in the animal kingdom. From ants to lions, pheromones are said to be what encourages them, on their quest to selecting the right mate! So why shouldn’t we as humans give this concept a try!

Hold your horses, before you jump on board and say, “yea, this sounds like a good idea”; here is what attending one of these parties would require. There is a certain technique about this. You are asked to sleep in a clean t shirt for three days before attending the party, and then on the morning of the party you should bag it and place it in the freezer to preserve your pheromone “scent”. When at the party, these t shirts will be placed in bags and labeled with green and pink stickers according to gender, pink for the women and green for the men. The attendees are then allowed to smell the other bags, and a photo is taken with you holding the numbered bag and projected on a screen at the party, this will aid in the decision making. If you smell something you like, then you may have a chance at connecting with that person at the party.

Most of our connections as humans, are formed based on sight or other materialistic reasons, this practice forces persons to rely on the “animal within” as they depend on their noses to make a decision for them. These parties encourage the participants to not focus on materialistic and intellectual reasons for mate selection but to depend on a more romantic form of mate selection.

Seeing many people from all walks of life, people who understand the supposed science behind the pheromone concept, to people who are just interested in new dating styles, these parties are a great addition to the world of matchmaking. Who knows, attending one of these parties, and using your natural instincts may just help you to find a suitable lifelong mate!

The Inside Scoop on Pheromone Parties Comments Off on The Inside Scoop on Pheromone Parties

Yes, Pheromone Parties. Parties where people are asked to wear a shirt for a few consecutive nights and then bring it along with them in a plastic bag. These bags are then numbered (only the owner of the shirt knows their own number) and placed on a table for everyone to sniff at their leisure. When someone finds a shirt that they consider to have an attractive scent, a picture is taken of them holding the bag. The pictures are then put up on a projector so that if the owner of the bag finds the person who chose it appealing, they can make contact.

Started by a California woman who was fed up with trying to find a date online, these match-making parties have been held in New York and L.A. and are planning on expanding to other cities.

Science has proven that it is possible for people to pick up even the slightest differences in smells, almost like an initial screening. It’s also theorized that people can pick up weaknesses in genetic code in potential matches.

The most common frequenters are generally young students who are more interested in the possibility than in finding love itself, but that isn’t to say anyone else is excluded. So keep an eye out, if a Pheromone Party comes to your town you might just “smell-out” the person of your dreams!

Pheromones – Androstenone vs. Androstenol Comments Off on Pheromones – Androstenone vs. Androstenol

Both Androstenone and Androstenol are pheromones that are secreted by men and women when they sweat. However, these two pheromones have some key differences. Androstenol is secreted within the first 15 minutes of perspiration, and it is effective only in fresh sweat, before it is overcome by bacteria. On the other hand, Androstenone is formed when sweat becomes older and is exposed to oxygen. The pheromones also differ in their levels of production throughout the lifespan. While Androstenone is produced steadily throughout adulthood, Androstenol is produced at a peak from adolescence to mid-twenties, after which it drops off dramatically.

Androstenol is generally an odorless chemical that becomes dispersed in the air, but some individuals have noted this pheromone as being sweet smelling. This pheromone is attractive, bringing about friendly, non threatening feelings between individuals of the opposite sex. The scent Androstenone cannot be detected by about half of women, and those who can detect the scent may find it unpleasant, neutral, or pleasant. Unlike Androstenol, Androstenone generally triggers negative feelings in women during any time except for ovulation, and it can bring about feelings of aggressiveness or nervousness in both sexes. People have described this pheromone as signaling aggressiveness and dominance. Learn more at Pherolibrary or

The Truth About Aphrodisiacs and Pheromones Comments Off on The Truth About Aphrodisiacs and Pheromones

So what is an Aphrodisiac anyway? An Aphrodisiac is simply anything that sexually excites members of a specific social group. In the case of humans it stimulates a sexual desire or response for sexual activity. The name itself refers to Aphrodite – the Greek goddess of sex. A number of items are alleged to be Aphrodisiacs. Often however, it is usually a sort of placebo type effect that is wrongly thought to cause the sexual desire.
Several chemicals tested under laboratory conditions, such as Alkyl Nitrates, Melanotan, PEA and Bremlanotide have produced sexual response in humans. Often, as expected simply increasing levels of the hormone testosterone will cause a noticeable increase in sexual drive.

On the natural Aphrodisiac front there are several herbs and certain foods that will trigger the sexual response. Some of the alleged trigger herbs and foods include things like, Maca, Ginseng, Oysters, Yohimbine, Watermelon, Ginkgo Biloba, Deer Antlers, as well as several other foods and compounds. In addition, there are the Pheromones that are said to be specific chemicals that can trigger a sexual response.

The big distinction between Aphrodisiacs and Pheromones is that while Aphrodisiacs act inside the body, Pheromones act outside the body. This is often seen in the insect world, as a way to defend territory, or in some cases trigger aggression in certain insects and animals. In the animal kingdom, Pheromones are used to identify when a female is ready for breeding.

In the case of humans, certain smells or odors have been indeed shown to trigger the sexual response. For example, certain elements like Androstenone have shown the ability to arouse sexual feelings. This is one of the hormones associated with puberty in humans. In truth there is really no solid evidence that externally applied Pheromones will increase sexual drive in humans. While there are some pheromone products sold commercially that claim to contain certain Pheromones and to be an Aphrodisiac, there is little to no scientific evidence to support these product claims. None-the-less it would certainly be worth conducting personal experimentation if the opportunity were to present itself.

Are Pheromones a Type of Aphrodisiac Comments Off on Are Pheromones a Type of Aphrodisiac

Can pheromones be used as Aphrodisiacs? First, let’s learn a little about pheromones and aphrodisiacs. Pheromones are substances that are released by animals and humans and it’s used mainly to attract the opposite sex and stimulate his sex desire, while aphrodisiacs are substances used by humans to increase his sex desire and to improve his/her sexual ability.

While scientific data varies, some scientists have showed that humans have pheromones, however, showers, perfumes and perfumed soups or shampoo removes them. Scientists have stated that the apocrine glands in some organs in human body release human pheromones, such as nipples, axillae (underarm), genital area, eyelids and outer ear.

On the other side of the coin, humans use Aphrodisiacs to increase their sexual desire and ability. Despite interest in aphrodisiacs there are few scientific studies done on them. There are two major types of aphrodisiacs, psycho-physiological, like smell related (pheromones in animals). The second type of aphrodisiacs is internal, which is ingested materials like drugs, alcohol and some kinds of food. The most well-known foods that are associated Aphrodisiacs are ginseng root, asparagus, oysters, honey and bananas. There are others as well and it’s said that they contain substances which can affect your hormones and increase the blood flow to genital organs and maybe they have some psychological effect.

The question remains, can we use pheromones as Aphrodisiacs? Depending on the information we discussed, human pheromones can be used as psychological Aphrodisiacs. However, in order for them to be effective, you need to be within close range because of the limited human olfactory ability. If you haven’t tried pheromones yet, I strongly recommend trying them and experiencing the positive effects to your confidence with the opposite sex.

The Pheromone and Aphrodisiac Connection Comments Off on The Pheromone and Aphrodisiac Connection

Though pheromones and aphrodisiacs both have the reputation for stimulating sexual arousal and attraction, they have little else in common.

Pheromones are a chemical released (excreted or secreted) by an individual’s body which stimulates an emotional or behavioral response within the receiver. This exchange typically occurs between like species and the response elicited by the “receiver” can vary in nature from sexual arousal, attraction, self-protection, identification, aggression, etc. Pheromones function primarily as modulators of both social and sexual behavior in human species, non-human species (insects and animals), and even among certain plants.

Aphrodisiacs are a substance that more specifically stimulates or enhances sexual desire, arousal, and pleasure. An aphrodisiac can come in the form of food, herb, chemical compound, sex hormone, or drug and alcohol. Some of the foods that are widely believed to have aphrodisiacal properties are chocolate, oysters, saffron, watermelon, and avocado (among others).

Aphrodisiacs can work in a few ways. The first way they can work is through actual physical stimulation. This is the case with the oyster, for example. Oysters contain high levels of the mineral zinc. Zinc has been known to control progesterone levels in humans, which have a positive effect on libido. Therefore, foods rich in this mineral can potentially enhance sexual desire in that respect. Herbs, like cayenne, have been proven to increase blood flow, and therefore enhance the body’s natural stimulating processes. Certain drugs, as well as alcohol, work to promote relaxation and lower an individual’s inhibitions. The second way in which an aphrodisiac can work is through visual stimulation. Some foods are considered aphrodisiacs simply because of their sexually suggestive nature, and are also known as “erogenous foods”. For example, foods like bananas, carrots and or eggs can remind us of sex organs, etc. Lastly, an aphrodisiac can also work through the sense of smell. Certain scents, like lavenders or musks, have been known to stimulate chemicals in the brain which can arouse sexual desire.
