We've all heard of pheromones.
via: GettyWhen it comes to the mysterious substance, opposites definitely attract. Well, that's what the scientists say anyway.
Researchers have recently discovered something very interesting...
via: GettyThey have found out that people with a certain type of gene prefer people with opposite pheromones to themselves, and this is all down to biology.
via: GettyA recent study from a Swiss group found that people can sniff out this genetic difference, without even realizing they're doing it.
Some scientists don't believe this claim.
via: GettyA New Mexico study claimed that when women are at their most fertile time of the month, they will prefer the smell of the fittest looking man.
Both studies used the "sweaty T-shirt" method.
via: GettyThe sweaty Tshirt experiment was originally conducted in 1995 by Claus Wedekind. He wanted to find out why humans are attracted to certain people.
But what is the "sweaty T-shirt" experiment?
via: GettyAlthough we might think attraction is all down to horoscope signs or similar interests, it turns out, it is all down to chemistry.
This is all according to evolutionary scientists.
via: GettyThere is a specific reason subtle chemical signals, or pheromones, have been known to draw people of the opposite sex together.
Claus Wedekind, set up a test of women's sensitivity to male odors.
via: GettyThe volunteers - 49 women and 44 men - were selected for their variety of gene types (sex hormones). He gave the men clean T-shirts to wear for 2 nights and then return to the scientists.
Can't think of anything worse.
via: GettyThe women volunteers were asked to come in, one at a time, and sniff the T-shirts. Their task was to describe each odor, writing down the intensity, pleasantness, and sexiness.
It turns out the women do prefer the scents of T-shirts worn by men with contrasting genes from their own.
via: GettyThe results suggest that evolution has provided humans with a built in mate detector. I have to admit, I'd much rather go out for dinner. Keep scrolling to find out the lengths one woman has gone to, to attract a partner.
No one forgets their favorite perfume on a night out.
via: GettyWhether you apply copious amounts of fake tan or change your outfit 5 different times before being ready to go out, there's one thing we all make sure we do before going on a night out...
Everyone wants to smell good.
via: GettyNobody wants to be that smelly person dancing alone in the club. There's always one!
One woman has taken things to a new level.
What is her "delicious scent"?
via: GettyThe sexologist Shan Boodram claims that people can't keep their hands off her when she wears the scent made from her... Wait for it...
via: GettyShe has written about this phenomenon in her book, The Game of Desire.
She has worn it several times over the years.
via: GettyBoodram says how people often "flock to her" when she wears her natural scent.
Boodram wanted to test her theory on other women.
via: GettyShe asked 3 of her clients to take part, to see if their copulins - chemicals secreted by the v**ina - would attract more people.
Boodram outlined her expectations of the experiment.
via: GettyShe wanted to see if they got more attention from people in a crowded bar after they applied their "perfume".
Boodram got the 3 women to come to the toilets halfway through the night.
via: GettyShe wrote: "I instructed them to wash their hands, get in a stall and then move their finger around their v**inal opening. The goal was to get a sample from the Bartholin's glands, which are the size of a pea but play a large role in v**inal lubrication". She then asked them to apply "a good amount of wetness" on their pulse points and around their neck.
