I dunno if anyone's ever experienced this, but when I was younger and dating different women, I could tell when their periods were coming by how they smelled and how their kisses tasted. It was kind of like a PMS Early Warning/Detection system, and once I figured it out, I was, on a few occasions, glad it was there. I can tell with Mrs. Othniel when her TOTM is near without doing the mental calculations men are.....known to do.

Anyone else experience this, or is my honker just a tad more calibrated than most?

Out of curiosity, did you find a difference between carnivores and vegans? Wondering how that would affect pherones. My nose has been busted so many times I wouldn't be able to smell my house burning down. (but you should've seen the other guy)

Interesting,but I always know when my wife if indisposed, or about to be, as it were and I never keep track of the calender or anything like that. I just know. I can't say how I know. It could be smell, or other subconscious things I pick up on. In fact I think it is safe to say that us guys can tell if any women we are around regularly is, well, indisposed.

"But when she is having a period, and not ready for pregnancy, the smell changes to an acute, repellent odour."

They needed a study to conclude this?

Interesting study. I have always been able to tell when a woman's "friend" is visiting because of a specific odor. Being reared with two sisters and a mother allowed my nose to be a little discerning. No matter how much perfume a subject is wearing, I seem to be able to tell.

The olfactory nerve and apparatus is very good in some of us and it helps in my everyday job also. The study has some credibility with me.

Precisely...except what the picture shows is the patented Cubic Zerconium One Karat Diamond leg separator. It costs $19.99 on EBay and works flawlessly unless the object of your desires gets the ring appraised...but by then...

SCIENTISTS DISCOVER THAT HUMANS BREED!

Big Science has become nothing more than a scam to get government funding. It is silly and disgusting. The Congress should defund all of it. Only the DOD should be engaged in the funded of research.

Don't worry. When a woman falls in love with you she will love your scent and think you are the most handsome man in the world. If you have lots of hair or no hair at all, she won't care. She won't even notice.

They provided odour samples on the armpit pads, which were then presented to 42 men, who sniffed them and assessed the attractiveness of the scent.

And I thought my job sucked!

You're right about that!

If she is in love with you, it makes no difference what you look like.

If you are rich, it makes no difference what you look like.

If you're poor and she still loves you, you're lucky.

Yeah --- although it doesn't appear that it was much more high tech than this one:

No, I don't think you even get to see the women. You only get to smell the cloth or cotton pad that soaks up their pit perspiration.
