Sometimes it is good to be a big sweaty man. 😉
Sept. 18, 2007 – Liz Gabor calls the odor â€œman sweat.â€ And though sheâ€™s loath to admit it, the aromatic scent makes her feel, as she calls it, a little frisky. â€œMy friends think Iâ€™m crazy, but I think male sweat is kind of pleasant and, well, kind of hot,â€ says Gabor, 28, a customer service rep and happily married mother of two young girls.
Actually I think that this story is kind of interesting. Here is one more excerpt:
According to the Rockefeller and Duke researchers, about 70 percent of adult men and women have the genetic capacity to perceive a particular chemical called androstenone in male body odor. To them, the testosterone-laden substance can take on a pleasant bouquet similar to vanilla or other sweet or woodsy scents. Others who have a functional copy of the gene perceive androstenone as less than pleasurable, akin to the aromatic elixir of stale urine. About 30 percent of adult men and women canâ€™t smell androstenone at all, leading researchers to suspect they might be missing the gene responsible for smelling the aroma.
