Copulins: Human pheromones effect physiology and affect social behavior

Finally, there’s news for women interested in pheromone enhancement. We showed that the active ingredients in Scent of Eros for Men increased women’s flirtatious behavior and self-reported level of attraction in the poster available here: Human pheromones, epigenetics, physiology, and the development of animal behavior. A poster presentation at this week’s XXI BIENNIAL INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON HUMAN ETHOLOGY VIENNA/AUSTRIA is reported and linked below:

Human pheromones: Do “copulins” have an effect on men`s testosterone levels and social behavior? (SFA) Xenia Steinbach, Elisabeth Oberzaucher, Karl Grammer

Excerpted from the abstract: This study indicates that copulins affect males both in physiology and behavioral response.
My comment: So far as I know, the copulin formula is the same one used in Scent of Eros for Women. It originated with work by RP Michael et al., which Astrid Juette worked with  under the professorship of Karl Grammer — as detailed in a 1997 presentation at the International Symposium on Olfaction and Taste XII and AChemS XIX.

We added androstenol (and fragrance) to the formula for its positive influence on the woman who wears it. I had no idea it would take this long for replication of the original work, but am glad to see it presented and hope to see it published soon.

For more information on my award-winning work with others from Vienna, including Karl Grammer, the co-presenter of this latest information, see Human pheromones: integrating neuroendocrinology and ethology.

If you’re still struggling to find accurate representations of what can be done with pheromone-enhancement, you’re in the right place.  As you can see, the links to actual studies and reviews can be followed, as opposed to the wild-goose-chase you’re led on trying to find support for the claims of marketers who are not associated with or Scent of Eros products.



About James V. Kohl 1308 Articles
James Vaughn Kohl was the first to accurately conceptualize human pheromones, and began presenting his findings to the scientific community in 1992. He continues to present to, and publish for, diverse scientific and lay audiences, while constantly monitoring the scientific presses for new information that is relevant to the development of his initial and ongoing conceptualization of human pheromones. Recently, Kohl integrated scientific evidence that pinpoints the evolved neurophysiological mechanism that links olfactory/pheromonal input to genes in hormone-secreting cells of tissue in a specific area of the brain that is primarily involved in the sensory integration of olfactory and visual input, and in the development of human sexual preferences. His award-winning 2007 article/book chapter on multisensory integration: The Mind’s Eyes: Human pheromones, neuroscience, and male sexual preferences followed an award winning 2001 publication: Human pheromones: integrating neuroendocrinology and ethology, which was coauthored by disinguished researchers from Vienna. Rarely do researchers win awards in multiple disciplines, but Kohl’s 2001 award was for neuroscience, and his 2007 “Reiss Theory” award was for social science. Kohl has worked as a medical laboratory scientist since 1974, and he has devoted more than twenty-five years to researching the relationship between the sense of smell and the development of human sexual preferences. Unlike many researchers who work with non-human subjects, medical laboratory scientists use the latest technology from many scientific disciplines to perform a variety of specialized diagnostic medical testing on people.
