The Mystique of Your Partner’s Body Odor

PartnerI fall for this click bait every time! Here’s a study that tells us about the surprising effects smelling your partner’s body odor can have over you. Ladies, brace yourself. It turns-out his smell is actually calming to you. Let me explain a little more about how this works. It’s not the smell of his bod after he returns from the gym with a pungent odor that should be curbside with the trash. It’s the smell that lingers on his t-shirt, his natural scent. So picture how you feel after a satisfying, intimate sexual encounter with your mate. You feel nice and relaxed, hopefully. So that explains a little bit about how this voodoo works.  A study found that after smelling the t-shirts of 3-different men, only 1 of them belonging to her rightful partner, the stress hormone cortisol, dropped when women smelled their partners t-shirt. It rose when they smelled the other 2-shirt that were not their partner. This isn’t just a ladies rule, only. The very same reaction applied for men when they smelled their partners t-shirt. See? The rule of pheromones holds true for the survival of relaxation for enhanced quality of life. If he or she is going away for a stint, keep their worn clothes nearby for the decompressing effects it provides you. It’s not creepy, says the study. It’s proven science.
