Orgasms and Smell…

I started reading an article today that my therapist suggested. In this article it talks about the difference between Lust and long-term love.

Anyway there is this one quote by Helen Fisher A Rutgers University Professor who has devoted much of her career to studying the biochemical pathways of love in all its manifestations: Lust, romance, attachment and the way they wax and wane.

She says, “A woman unconsciously uses orgasms as a way of deciding whether or not a man is good for her. If he’s impatient and rough and she doesn’t have the orgasm, she instinctively feels he’s less likely to be a good husband and father. Scientists think the fickle female orgasm may have evolved to help women distinguish Mr. Right from Mr. Wrong.”

Pretty Amazing. Another Dr in the article said that we are attracted by smell to our mates more than anything else. That our choices in our mate are most opposite in smell to us and that difference in smell is an indicator they have immunities that the other is lacking.

Anyway… it was an interesting article. If you get a chance you should read it… it is in the February 2006 issue of National Geographic.

    Did you miss the point that your therapist was actually trying to make?

    lol Nope didn’t miss the point of the article at all.

    Basically… the article talks about how lust is natures way of making us crazy for a person so that we accept their faults and fall in love. They actually compare Lust to mental disorders. GRIN.

    Without lust… it is difficult to have long-term romantic love with person. Lust morphs into happy long term relationships because that passion/lust is ever present… sure it wanes and surges… but if you start a relationship without it…. It will never be there.

    That’s really interesting, Lacy, especially about he scents. I always knew opposites attract, I didn’t know it went deeper than personalities. Cool post.

    Hee. Worked for me!

    I love the science of smell. Most women will admit they love the smell of ther mates skin au naturalle. I can’t remember where, but an article said that it lowered the females blood pressure.

    Nothing wrong with judging a man by his ability to create an orgasm. 😉

    So Lacy… tell us, who was the one that made you orgasm the best and hardest?

    Now take that experience and tell us if the article is correct and if the strength of the orgasm has anything to do with commitment.
