Tears: The Ultimate Man Repellent

January 7, 2011  |  

Whenever you’re not in the mood to get down with your man, skip the headache excuse and start crying! According to research published in the journal “Science,” the smell of a woman’s tears lowers a man’s arousal and testosterone levels.

The men in the study didn’t even see the women crying.  Researchers collected women’s tears on special pads and placed them on the upper lips of the male volunteers.  Saline solution was used on some pads instead of tears and sure enough, the tears were what caused men to lose that loving feeling, not the saline.

The big deal about this study is that it’s the first time that findings have suggested that there is some kind of chemical communication that goes along with tears.

Wanna know which scents get the ol’ motor running for women? You might guess one, you will definitely not guess the other.
