His Sweat Tells a Woman He's "In the Mood"!

His Sweat Tells a Woman He's "In the Mood"!

I've heard that some women love how their man smells after he works out, and it turns out that musty aroma might be telling you more than you think. According to a recent study, the scent of a man's perspiration can subconsciously tell a woman that he's "in the mood."

Researchers in this study asked 20 heterosexual men to stop wearing antiperspirant and other scented products for a few days. Then (this is a funny image!) they asked the men to put pads in their armpits while they watched pornographic movies so the scientists could gather their sweat. Afterward, they were asked to place pads under their armpits so sweat could be collected when they weren't aroused. Nineteen brave women's brains were scanned as they sniffed these pads and lo and behold, their brains reacted to the sweat produced when the guys were turned on. I guess we have a little animal instinct in us after all!

What do you think? Are you turned on by your man's sweat when he's aroused?

Rosie O wouldn't even come your way...you have testosterone...soo unattractive to a woman such as her...however, for the rest of us ladies out there...there is nothing more attractive than a man being a man. By the same token, men like that are attracted to woman for being a woman. When your scents are attractive to another person...the resulting "mix" of pheromones is AWESOME!!! Just my opinion!

I like the way my bf smells in the morning when we wake up. :) mix of sleep, his natural smell, sheet smell, worn out cologne, and just everything...super sweaty..well he wears deodurent but I do find him hot after a work out..but that has to do with his buldging muscles? not sweat i think...

It's not a conscious thing. People prob. get turned on by the sweat and then think it's something else. But yeah, 20 guys isn't a good study.And I'm just turned on by my guy's natural smell in general, rather than all the products...

a sample of 20 males is hardly representative and no, i've never noticed what he smells like when he's in the mood, but i can see the look in his eye when he's wanting some
