Men can smell when a woman is sexually aroused

In a new study, researchers found that men can distinguish between the scents of sexually aroused and non-aroused women.

The detection of sexual arousal through smell may function as an additional channel in the communication of sexual interest and provide further verification of human sexual interest.

The research was conducted by a team from Kent University.

This study expands on previous studies which have concluded that humans can communicate and detect emotions such as fear or sadness through scent.

Sexual arousal is also identified as an emotional physical state.

The team did three different experiments where men smelled the scents of axillary sweat samples from sexually aroused and non-aroused women.

Men evaluated the scent of sexually aroused women as relatively more attractive and this increased their sexual motivation.

This suggests that the chemical signals of scent alone can elicit a sexual response in recipients.

The findings suggest that men are sensitive to the olfactory signals of sexual arousal released by women.

These signals released along with corresponding visual and auditory expressions of sexual interest can produce a stronger overall signal that increases sexual motivation.

Sexual interest may entail more than meets the eye and the researchers hope that the current findings encourage further research to examine the role of sexual olfactory signals in human communication.

The research paper titled, “Sexual Chemosignals: Evidence that Men Process Olfactory Signals of Women’s Sexual Arousal,” is published in.

The lead author of the study is Dr. Arnaud Wisman, a Psychologist at Kent.

The study is published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior.
