1. What are pheromones – and can they really improve
my love life?

Pheromones are chemicals that are secreted in our sweat (and other bodily fluids). Mammals and other animals also secrete pheromones, and scientists have long known that these pheromones are natural sexual attractants that wield a powerful influence on their mating habits.

Likewise, pheromones affect the mating habits of human beings. These behavior-altering chemicals are the driving force behind all sexual attraction. They influence how often we have sex and with whom.

It’s those invisible, odorless pheromones emanating from a man (or woman) more than his (or her) looks or voice which attracts the opposite sex. Therefore, when you use behavior-altering pheromones, you are more likely to have more sexual experiences than those who believe they can attract the opposite sex by wearing a nice outfit, shirt or blouse.

2. What does “VNO” mean?

VNO stands for Vomeronasal Organs. They are 2 small sensory organs located in the nose that operate separately from the part of our nose that detect normal smells. The VNO is used by the body to detect some types of PHEROMONES, but is not the exclusive pheromone sensing organ many believe it to be. The membranes of the VNO, along with other receptor cells on the main olfactory membrane, are adapted to detect pheromones at low concentrations and to transmit information to the brain/hypothalamus.

3. Are pheromones just for heterosexuals?

PHEROMONES are not just for heterosexuals or any kind of “sexuals” for that matter. PHEROMONES can be used to make you seem and feel more attractive and youthful to those around you regardless of your goals, sexual or otherwise. Whether you are male or female gay or straight, I am convinced that supplemental PHEROMONES can enrich your social life.

4. How long do they last?

PHEROMONES hold up much longer than normal cologne, but if you apply them to the body, quite a bit is washed away or broken down in the first 4-6 hours. Actual breakdown time depends VERY much on body heat, sweating, and personal body chemistry; so in the winter on your wrists the scent might last much longer, and if it gets onto your clothing, it can last for days or weeks! The Edge can be applied to clothing directly and will last for weeks or until washed out.

5. How do I make the most of pheromones?

Remember that PHEROMONES are tools. It takes a little practice to learn to work with them.

Men: Be the “good guy”! PHEROMONES give you an aura of power, but that can be scary for shy women if you look grumpy or like a “lone wolf”. Always look for opportunities to be helpful and supportive of women. It is also very important to be a friendly, interesting, entertaining guy. Pheromones will enhance these good attributes, but if they aren’t there in the first place, there is nothing to enhance.

Women: Be approachable! If you suffer from the “ice maiden” syndrome, PHEROMONES are only going to push you further out of reach, even to guys you would love to get to know. You don’t necessarily have to make the first move, but be ready to come up with a warm smile and maybe even a cheerful “hello” if you happen to make eye contact with a guy.

Everybody: Practice makes perfect. Don’t wait for Mr. or Ms. perfect to come along before you start acting like a friendly sensual human being. Start now. Be friendly; be helpful; be funny. Don’t be like the crazy old man shouting at his wood stove: “Damn it ! I’ll give you some wood as soon as you give me some heat!”

People love to be loved. People love to be with folks who look like they are having a good time. Women in particular are often looking for someone whose life is headed in a positive direction. Chemistry is only half the picture you give to folks. Humans are more complex/social/spiritual than other animals. It takes more than a spray of PHEROMONES to get where you are heading.

6. How and where do I apply pheromones?

For starters, try all the normal perfume spots: wrists, behind the ears, throat, and chest. Next level: inside of elbows and knees if exposed. Women report success with ankles and thighs. Requiring more caution but reportedly very effective for PHEROMONES in the right amounts are: arm pits, hair and pubis. Unscented sprays are often applied to clothing collars and cuffs for long term use. Watch out for over-application and staining of fine material.

7. Is it better to apply to the skin or to clothing?

Both skin and clothing applications are effective in their own way. Due to body heat PHEROMONES applied to the skin evaporate very fast putting them into “effect” very quickly. This may be what you want in some cases, but it also means the active ingredients get used up very quickly. In addition, PHEROMONES applied to the skin also get washed away by sweat and broken down by bacteria on the skin. Unscented spray products like Edge are easily applied to clothing. Just keep in mind that the “scent” will be on there for a LONG time, and may take several washings to come off completely. You may want to be careful of delicate fabric too.

8. What kind of expectations can I have?

You can expect a lot from high quality concentrated pheromone products like Chikara, Alter Ego For Men, and Liquid Trust. It just takes a little while to get good at using them. Some people might see results instantly, but the majority of people will get better results over time. PHEROMONES are more of a tool than a magic wand. You have to learn to work with them. What you have there is a top of the line tennis racket. It takes practice to make the most of it.

Tips for men: First of all keep in mind what a high-end andro product does. It makes you more attractive in a male sort of a way, more manly, study etc. That is a good thing for attracting most women, but keep in mind that generally you have to look friendly. You have to temper the stud thing with Mr. helpful or you are going to have a hard time breaking the ice with most women. Primal makes you seem more powerful but I can tell you from experience that women have to get the feeling that you are going to use that power to protect them and not control or exploit them. Weak and helpful is a loser, but tough and mean also loses. If you walk into a convenience store looking like Clint Eastwood, you aren’t going to get anybody approaching you.

Tips for women: Be mysterious, be seductive but be approachable. Fear is your worst enemy, both in yourself and in the guys you would like to meet. Help make the “ice” easily broken; be generous with your warm smile and “hello”; then just let the chemistry take its course.

9. I have tried using various amounts and products, but I did not get any response, what is wrong, or what can I do?

A. When in doubt, cut back on the pheromones; start light and work up slowly; just one spray of strong spray products is often plenty. Less is often more and your own personal body chemistry dictates what works for you; not the type and amount of pheros that works so well for your roommate.

B. Beware of the “BO” effect. Androstenone-heavy products like Primal and Edge have a musky though elusive smell, which many women depending on culture, upbringing, relationship status and “time of the month” perceive as dirty or invasive. As many as 25% of all US males can not detect this smell at all, so be careful! Most women can smell it very well. If you are having trouble, try one small spray (or dab) of such products on each wrist and apply some cologne over the top. Then rub your wrists together. I do that during the day for business situations, and it seems to work well.

C. Once you have the stage set for romance, there is still the matter of simply “rolling the dice”. It doesn’t always come up 7, but the pheros will improve your odds. Just relax and enjoy the ride. Everyone wants to be friends with someone who looks like he/she is having a good time. So, “don’t worry, be happy.”

D. Don’t just sit back and wait for the positive reactions to fall in your lap, go and mingle! Pheromones enhance, they won’t create something out of nothing.
