Honey, Sniff Me, I'm Horny

Ladies, forget waiting for your husband to tell you he's in the mood. Now you can sniff him and tell when you have to fake a headache.

According to a study published in the Journal of Neuroscience, women can actually smell a man's sexual intentions -- further proving the fact that humans do communicate via subconscious chemical signals. So, basically, we are able to smell sex.

Denise Chen, a psychologist at Rice University in Houston, and her colleagues came up with an experiment to compare how women respond to different types of male sweat -- sweat produced in everyday situations versus the sweat men produce when they are turned on.

Chen and her colleagues asked 20 heterosexual men to stop wearing deodorant and perfumes for several days -- not hard, we're sure. Then they asked the men to put small pads under their arms and watch porn to get aroused. The men were then asked to wear different pads to collect sweat while they weren't aroused.

The researchers then found 19 VERY helpful (and brave) women who were willing to sacrifice their noses for science -- they sniffed the sweaty pads while undergoing brain scans.

Sure enough, the women's brains all reacted differently depending on which pad they sniffed. According to the research, the sexual sweat -- but not the regular sweat -- activated two brain areas that help us recognize and perceive things. Both of these areas are in the right hemisphere, which controls smell, social response, and emotion.

So ladies, what does this mean for you? You might not have to wait for your man to tell you he's in the mood because you will have already smelled it.

I have experienced this smell many times. I always referred to it as that Turned on Smell. I can smell it while just making out. It gets more intense as the making out goes to hands on contact, to the groping. Then when either of you can no longer control yourselves, and end up ripping each others clothes off. It’s Hot! There have been times with some men, mostly men who are quite a bit younger than myself, who have this certain taste in their mouths that I’ve experienced while kissing. I love that taste, the taste seems more prominent when my guy friends wake me up in the middle of the night with their mouths glued to mine in a wide open mouth kiss, that is demanding, hearing a man’s growls coming from deep inside them, while they listen to my whimpering moans makes them want a woman like me all the more!! Their body temperature seems to have soared as their body pins my down…oh my!!! It’s ALL good! Just some of my observations.
