Letter from the Prez:
First full month back in Eugene went by in a blur. Whew! We have been working on the long awaited Scent of Eros for women and will hopefully be ready to roll in the next few weeks. Expect to see it in next month’s newsletter.
The price of WAGG will soon (finally) revert back to it’s official price. As you may know already, we recently added a slightly zapped version called “WAGG-N”. It’s now or never, if you want it at the sale price.
We finally had to stop selling the wildly popular “Newbie Special” as supplies ran low. Hopefully, we will start something similar again soon, but in the mean time check out the Dynamic Duo special below. It only runs to the end of next week though, so don’t put that off if you are interested.
Also free with women’s orders:
1 bottle of Veritia herbal

Q and A:
Q:How about deodorant? Can I continue using it when I start using pheromone products?
A:Deodorant is a difficult issue. Some body smells are very erotic and work together with the pheromone products. These are the natural pheromones which are produced by the body for the purpose of attracting a mate. Unfortunately, stress and bad health/diet and age-related problems create bad body smells that drive away potential mates. Myself, sometimes body odor seems to be my friend and I won’t even shower before a romantic evening; other times I scrub well or use a deodorant to kill off foul smells. Some women have reported excellent results applying small amounts of their own vaginal secretions along with cologne, while other women seem revolted at the very idea. It is really a case by case decision: Go with the natural smells? Or scrub them off and use only synthetic pheromones. You just have to experiment. There are no set answers here, only desired results, so you have to keep your eyes open for results and make adjustments as necessary. Personally, I think most young people (especially women) are overly worried about natural body smells, so my advice is to be a bold scientific explorer and give the natural pheromones a chance.
Q:Your last newsletter issue mentioned the VNO [organ found in the nose of mammals which is believed to be associated with the perception of pheromones]. I’ve read articles claiming that the VNO picks up genetic information in a person’s “scent” and either identifies with it (resulting in attraction) or doesn’t (no attraction), based on their own genes. Some articles say it’s a safeguard against inbreeding, while others claim the VNO detects immunities comprable to your own. This gland is the source of the whole “I want a man who smells like daddy” thing. Which is correct?
A: There was some research done in Europe which seems to show that women prefer the man who has a genetic makeup that is the most *different* from her own, which should serve to expand the gene pool, prevent “inbreeding”, and thus improve the chances of healthy offspring. In light of that I would think that a woman would *not* be sexually attracted to a man who is genetically similar to her father. This biological device would seem handy for the advancement of the speicies, so you could say it “makes sense” if this type of genetic pheromone selection does indeed exist.

Messengers of Love
Exerpts from article in Der Stern Magazine
Below are exerpts translated from an article entitled “Chemical Messengers of Love” which appeared in Germany’s number one news magazine, Der Stern. It is quite long, but well worth the read. There is a lot of good background info on pheromones.
“Napoleon Bonaparte was to the point: ‘Don’t wash any longer, I’m coming back soon,’ he wrote in a dispatch from his camp to Empress Josephine. The brilliant strategist obviously possessed an infallible sense of how the nose plays a key role in love and sex. Now, 200 years later, researchers can scientifically explain the behavior of the little Corsican. The organ of smell detects not only intoxicating perfume or the offensive stench of a body. It can also register the mysterious agents of enticement and information, the pheromones. For humans they guide many emotions, as well as sexual attraction and the choice of partners. Although they are mostly odorless and waft through the air only in the smallest traces, they determine who appeals to us and who doesn’t. Like invisible procurers, they stand behind love at first sight, which strictly speaking, has to be called ‘love at first smell.’ These chemical messengers have also been discovered in the last few years to play a role in the proverbial ‘spring fever.’ Their great time comes when winter is over, the coat and cap are put into mothballs, and colds no longer stop up the nose. Without hindrance, these secret seducers can now escape from low-cut necklines. They begin to show their full effect when they float into a ‘foreign’ nostril and land there on the ‘vomeronasal’ organ. This sensory instrument is only a centimeter long and as thin as a match. Although it was described by a Dutch military doctor in the eighteenth century, research only re-discovered it a short while ago.
Professor Werner Langthaler, psychologist at the University of Munster exclaims: “It is a sensation that now, almost in the year 2000, we are tracking down a new human sense.”
“Without the VNO, nothing happens in the animal kingdom. Baby marmosets and grass carps, blue crabs and ants release pheromones to mark the boundaries of their territory, as a warning to enemies, as recognition signs, enticements to love, status symbols, and for many other purposes. Queen bees use pheromones to inhibit the sexual maturity of female workers and to make the drones swarm. While entire brigades of researchers are focusing on animal pheromones, little has been known until today about the chemical agents of human attraction. We don’t even know how they are produced. There is every indication, however, that it happens in the skin, the largest and most complex organ of the human body, an organ that still presents scientists many mysteries. Crowded together in a single square centimeter are on the average over six million cells, 5000 sensory bodies, 100 sweat and 15 sebaceous glands, as well as 200 pain points, 10 to 25 pressure points, 12 cold and 2 war m points. Four meters of nerve fibers and one meter of blood vessels guarantee interconnection and supply. The most important pheromone factories are the armpits. Their sweat glands mix together a series of attraction agents. The substances are secreted during perspiration and evaporated from the heated skin.
“But what is actually attractive about them? And what do they have to do with love and sex? Sweat glands in the armpit area are only active during the times in which the human being is capable of reproduction. They first take up their work in puberty and suspend it in menopause. Not without good reason does the woman’s head and therefore her nose during snuggling lie mostly in the immediate vicinity of the man’s armpit. “For the transmission of pheromones, physical contact is indispensable,” asserts Charles Wysocki, professor of anatomy and renowned researcher at the University of Philadelphia. “The smelling radius and range of pheromones amounts at the most to a few centimeters.” Thick clothing, therefore, blocks these fleeting messengers of love that, like a fine veil of scent on our skin, are lying like a spring haze above a meadow of flowers. Frequent washing thins the pheromones or dissipates them altogether. That was exactly what Napoleon wanted to prevent.
“‘Full to the brim with pheromones‘ is the way neurophysiologist Luis Monti-Bloch from the University of Utah in Salt Lake City described the nasal groove running from the outer rim of the nostrils to the corners of the mouth. And it is exactly there that someone who is affectionate sticks the end of his nose when kissing. Professor Monti-Bloch: ‘The kiss is probably a ritual that serves especially to detect pheromones.’ That is ‘entirely obvious’ in the gallant hand kiss.
The researcher, Winnifred Cutler, has ‘determined that women who sleep with a man at least once a week have a more regular period than those who are abstinent.’ For this effect, however, neither man nor sex is responsible, but rather theaura of male scent. Women on whom Cutler dabbed an alcoholic extract of male armpit sweat under the nose each day for several weeks also developed a regular cycle without any male visit or touching.
“Quite specialized chemical agents of attraction seem to pour out of the sexual organs. ‘The tip of the rat penis produces its own pheromone,’ says Clive Jennings-White of the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. ‘Why should it be different for human beings?’ Up till now, 35 different pheromones have been discovered in the rat. ‘I hardly believe that we human beings possess fewer.’
“In five years of detective work, the researcher has uncovered 25 different chemical messengers in Homo Sapiens and decoded their chemistry. Substances that excite sexual desire were also present. “But we’re not speaking about them!” says David Berliner. The 66-year old, formerly a professor of anatomy at the University of Utah, heads the pheromone companies “Pherin” and “Realm” in California. The experts Jennings-White and Monti-Bloch are also conducting research at Pherin. ‘What we are discovering,’ says Berliner, ‘we will only market as medicines for impotence or disorder of the sexual drive, but in no case as an aphrodisiac.’
“besides aphrodisiacs, the spectrum of pheromones contains substances that make one offensive. If you cannot get someone’s scent, then repelling pheromones and a natural defense mechanism are at work. German researchers, like the American ones, have proved that a person instinctively rejects people whose immune genes are very similar to his own. In that way, nature intends not only to prevent incest but also to exclude the possibility that descendants result whose immune defense betrays dangerous gaps.
“This mechanism works infallibly. Although the pheromone production is dependent upon mood, health, and age, each human being possesses his own distinctive pheromone aura. Search dogs obviously make use of this “chemical i.d.” when tracking down lost persons, just as infants do when looking for their mother’s nipple. By the second day of life they can recognize the right source of milk by its scent, that is, by its pheromones. Steered by the vomeronasal organ, traces of pheromones guide the baby to its goal.
“According to the opinion of Luis Monti-Bloch, the human VNO is as powerful as that of a dog or cat. The professor: “Our VNO is about a thousand times more sensitive than our sense of smell.” By means of the VNO, these chemical attractors have an effect upon the hypothalamus. That is a region of the midbrain that regulates the most important processes in the organism – body warmth, sexual drive, fat metabolism, sleep, blood pressure, and breathing. In tests up to now, the substances have influenced twenty various metabolic processes – within fractions of a second.”
“For five years now, research at the companies founded by Berliner in California have been running at top speed. Especially when the researchers test the effects of newly discovered chemical messengers, they experience surprises. With one substance, instead of becoming love-crazed like tom-cats who scent a female in heat, one group of subjects showed deep relaxation. In surprise, Monti-Bloch recorded that the heartbeat and breathing of the test subjects slowed down and their muscles relaxed. “With human beings, pheromones have other tasks than to stimulate us to have sex,” says Berliner. “Social pheromones,” that improve interpersonal relationships, are however “a gift of heaven.”
“Clive Jennings-White has already produced more than 100 artificial pheromones. He calls them vomeropherins. They often have a stronger effect than the natural substances. The chemist: “The potential is gigantic! That’s the reason we’re having them patented like crazy.” Berliner: “I am certain that this research will open to us unbelievable possibilities for treating illnesses.” Artificial pheromones can be employed as appetite suppressants, contraceptives, and sedatives. They first thing they want to do however is to develop a remedy for prostate cancer. The foundation for it is supposed to be a vomeropherin that stops testosterone production in the bodies of sick persons. If the amount of sexual hormone in the blood sinks, the cancer shrinks. Side effects should not be expected, since the patient does not have to be pumped full of drugs and hormones, but rather only has to “smell” the medicine.
“Up to now, Berliner has put five million dollars into the research. He earns his necessary small change with a perfume creation. The cologne is supplied with two artificial human pheromones and is supposed to produce a mild euphoria for the wearer and thus make it possible to flirt with the opposite sex without nervousness or stress. The essence, as a men’s or women’s version in the trade, seems to sell best.
“There is no question that we all possess a vomeronasal organ,” says Professor Hans Hatt, cell physiologist at the University of Bochum, “Any throat, neck, and ears doctor who looks carefully can see it.”
“Monti-Bloch could also prove that little researched agents of chemical attraction, so-called pheromones, influence – among other things – the heartbeat, breathing, skin temperature, and hormonal balance. The pheromone researcher Clive Jennings-White sees the VNO as ‘our most undervalued organ.’ For this chemist, active like Monti-Bloch at the University in Salt Lake City, we are ‘pheromone animals. Not for nothing do we have a larger VNO than the horse.’
“David Berliner, one of the discovers of this secret seducer, classifies the VNO as ‘our third most important sense. It comes directly after seeing and hearing – and before touch and smelling. Chemical communication plays a key role also for us humans.’
“The VNO reacts as quick as lightning to any breath of a pheromone. Physiological changes are already measurable after a ten-thousandth of a second. According to Monti-Bloch: ‘This is proof that nerve paths from the VNO lead directly to the brain; for only they could cause such a quick reaction.’
Professor of Psychology Werner Langthaler of the University of Munster confirms that Monti-Bloch has clearly “proved that the VNO is connected via stimulant pathways to the brain.”
“This small detector of chemical attraction agents in our nose (VNO) is so sensitive that many highly modern analysis apparatuses have had to exert themselves to keep up with it. The VNO of persons examined by Monti-Bloch respond to 30 picograms of pheromone – that is, thirty millionths of a billionth of a milligram.”
Just in case, don’t forget to smile!

I’m a newbie. I discovered this forum almost 2 weeks ago. I read some of the current and archive posts and decided to place an order for AE/m, as I felt that it may be best suited to me…I’m a bit of a lone wolf type and thought that I could benefit from a more rounded all-in-one type of product. That Bad Boy look doesn’t do much good if I’m unapproachable, huh. Anyway, I’ve been testing my AE in a variety of different situations for the last week and have seen some amazing results. . . . A word of warning: I have received blatant sexual hits from a couple of my friends’ girlfriends and in front of their boyfriends, at that.
Scent of Eros has so many positives and I feel it is really underestimated by those in pursuit of “sexual hits”. What I experience with SOE is much more confidence, feeling at ease in all situations and this translates to being able to meet and interact with everyone very easily. And folks around just seem to like you instantly, talk about anything and everything with you and I’ve become so used to the attention I get from waitresses, waiters, bartenders, my co-workers etc. – but my friends (who I’ve never told I wear pheros) all say they can’t figure out how I seem to “mesmerize” folks and I’ve gained this rep. of being “the man”
