The Scent of Eros: Mysteries of Odor in Human Sexuality

Front Cover
Scientists have long known that odors and subliminal scents - sex attractants or pheromones - influence how animals develop, mate, bond, and nurture their offspring. Recently, scientists have discovered that human animals are no exception. Odors, explain the authors, can accelerate puberty, control women's menstrual cycles, and even influence sexual orientation. They help us tell lovers and family members from strangers and let mothers and infants bond. Odors affect how often we have sex, and with whom. They influence how the brain develops, what we remember, and how we learn. Odors are the spice of life.
Grounded in solid scientific research, yet maintaining an easy-to-read style, The Scent of Eros is an engrossing read on a whole new world under our noses!
