Female Pheromones: How Females Attract Mates.
The desire to attract the opposite sex is a universal want. Human beings, animals and insects have the need to mate and reproduce and that is why it is important to send out a message that could attract a possible mate. Female are regarded as one of the best tools for the female species to attract a possible mate. According to scientists, females, regardless of their species can send out a message via the female to let the males know that they are ready for reproduction.
In the case of animals and insects, the response of the male on the message sent through the female can be quite overwhelming. In some types of insects, the radius of reach of the can reach up to 6.2 miles. Since the message can reach a lot of males insects, chances are male insects will come in throngs to the place of the female. In some cases, the competition may become fierce that could result in death of some of the insects.
Female in Dogs
The role of the female in the reproductive process cannot be overly emphasized especially in the lower forms of animals. To cite a concrete example, let us take the case of dogs that are in heat. Studies show that female dogs that are in heat send out a scent or emit a form of chemical that the male dogs often recognize even at a distance. As the male dogs receive the message from the female, the male becomes sexually aroused and may become aggressive. More often than not, male dogs that caught of the female dog would display symptoms of stress. Unless the male dog is released to seek out the female dog that is in heat,
the male dog will become so stressed out that he could end up howling and barking throughout the day and long into the night.
Female Pheromones: Case of Human Beings
Unlike in the case of animals where the female are considered as very strong, the female in human beings have a more subtle effect. According to researchers and experts, female human beings do send out sexual messages to the males - however, such messages are more subtly conveyed. Furthermore, unlike in the insects and other animals where the males are free to openly respond to the invitation of the female that is in heat, male human beings are thankfully prevented by convention from going after the female like animals and insects do!
