So, this may be why some men are dominant, some submissive, and most don"t respond at all. I suspect that our reliance on verbal and visual clues have lost the ability to detect the smell altogether in most of the populace. I"ve often heard it said that pheromones cannot be smelled. I know this is not so, because I"ve always been able to smell them. I can tell if a woman is jerking my chain or actually interested. I have never had to rely on what she says, only on how sweet she smells when she"s around me. I have been able to limit my advances to only those women whose body"s were advertising thier desire for me. Sure has saved a whole lot of time, money and emotional stress.
