i was reading miss mrs leave's entry about male axilla and the perculiar smell that it emits that attracts women. i was thinking of pheromones, but it is only in the female human. so, as curiosity got the best of me, i googled it. what is there under that hairy jungle that attracts women?
the answer is: ANDROSTADIENONE (gawsh!! tounge twister!!)
lemme skim the info down to its bare essentials just so that we can grasp what in the world is this thing, eh?
Androstadienone is found in sweat, auxiliary hair, blood and semen. It is a common ingredient used in the manufacture of perfumes and colognes (haa.... no wonder la i am attracted to some male pour homme, if it were used by the right people). this is a chemosignal substance that causes the visual area of the women's brains to be more active and more alert, hence more attracted to the said male. androstadienone can be considered as the male pheromone.
so, next time, when you see a sweaty uber hot male, you choose, take a good whiff or runaway.
ermm.... i'll pass.
