What is the science behind pheremones and sexual attraction?


Answer by  kalabashi (47)

Pheromones are chemicals sent by one individual and sensed by another individual of the same species. In many animals (but not for humans) such pheromones attract the opposite sex.


Answer by  Aral (184)

The belief is that pheremones are used to signal the presence of a potential mate, and that each species that uses them has scent receptors that pick up their presence.
