Smell, men and the pill

April 10, 2012

In humans, as in animals, odour plays a crucial role when selecting the right mate. The mechanism is hidden in genes, controlling scent and immunity at the same time. It is the nature’s trick to put individuals with differing immunological makeup together to procreate. That is why we find differently smelling persons more attractive, they increase the likeliness of having healthier offspring.

Through history various scents were invented to cover up our genetic blueprint. But the Mother Nature could not be fooled, up until the birth control pill. When a woman is on the pill, her body is persuaded into thinking she is pregnant. Her immune system, as well as her odour, is turned around. Men with similar smell suddenly become more attractive and this phenomenon is not restricted solely to women.

Skyrocketing divorce rate, which coincides with the widespread use of the pill, may be more biological than previously thought. The trouble starts when people get married while the woman is on the pill. Once they decide to have children and stop using contraception, the woman may find out she is not nearly as attracted to the man, as she was before. Therefore, while trying to find your soul mate, do not let yourself be fooled by the pill.
