Testosterone, Pheromones and Estrogen: Is There Such A Thing As Sexual Attraction Really??

I was reading a blog from a good friend on mine on another site in ladydi66xx and thought to myself what an interesting topic that she chose to talk about? I wonder what some of you on this site think about it so here is her blog post entitled...."Testosterone, Pheromones and

Testosterone, Pheromones and Estrogen

Funny title for something commonly known to us human beings as being "horny".

Well, testosterone is more prominent in men, 10 times more but women have a certain level of it also. We are more sensitive to it, which is probably one reason our bodies react to virile, masculine men.

Pheromones,.... some would say that there are no definitive answers if in fact pheromones play a role between men and women. I say they do, it's simply that we have diminished our olfactory sensory neurons throughout time. Some men think I'm bizarre when I want to smell their armpits after having sex, just nuzzling and cuddling after sex.Well, to me, there is a scent that emanates and it can create an attraction of a sexual nature between men and women.

Estrogen levels in females... ahhh ! yes, the estrogen, the female sexual hormones, the one that tells you that we are ready to procreate (don't you like that word) lol...

So, when I think of all these terms, words that we use, basically in laymen's terms, there is definitely a thing called sexual attraction between men and women. It's not always based on looks or personality but can also be the way we smell, at different times of the month.

Women  have a stronger scent during ovulation or when they're on their period. Men have moments in the month where their libidos are very high and I've concluded, according to my personal experiences that when there is a full moon, men and women also crave sex more (that is, if you're
already in tune with your sexuality or enjoy it on a regular basis).

All of those things are great, but what about the mind???

what about that connection you make with someone, that person who can excite your
mind and your p***y at the same time? Why do we vibe better with some and not with others?

Is it really about the "d**k" or the person?

you tell me

So my thought is this folks....

What do you think folks..is there really a difference between the sexes to
the point where we are all kind of superficial in some way where we tend
to care more about a man's cock size or a female's large breast or how
good her p***y is...instead of what that individual has on the inner
being of themselves?

Just curious to see what kind of responses some of you will have to this topic?

Pheremones. I believe in their power. I believe we humans smell each other all day everyday. Some of us are drawn to folk and some of us are repelled by folk. We smell same as well as opposite sex. Not to get too deep- I'm simply saying that yes, i believe that pheremones exist and oh yeah, some of them turn me on-not to take away from the physical- but beyond that. Ever met that person that wasn't that hot but you were attracted to them? Men, aren't you all always breathing in your woman? Pheremones right? Hows about that person that you are so into that you literally sniff the hairs off thier body while you are having relations? Pheremones? I'm thinking yeah.
it all depends on how we meet. If I can c her first, I will kno if I am attracted to her body. If I talk 2 her first(phone, text,email.......) then I check out her mind, her style her conversation, & I can b attracted that way as well. Either way when we r close, I can b turned off by her smell or extreemly turn on(depending on the smell). If we go as far as sex, u'd best believe Im taking n a nose full of her with every breath. & if Im really feeling her flavor, imma give it a few days b4 I wash my sheets(like3/4)just 2 get that lingering blessing of her essence. Yea, im with u FemB.......Pheremones?.....me tinks,, yes!!!

MEET ME AT THE ALTER: “Jagged Edge” Member Kyle Norman Says He’s A Changed Man & MARRIES Woman He Choked Out

 photo ky1.jpg

Jagged Edge member Kyle Norman is a married man now. He recently got married to the woman he choked and forced to swallow her own engagement ring during an altercation back in January. Get the deets on their wedding and how Kyle has turned a new leaf inside….

This past January, Jagged Edge member Kyle Norman was arrested on aggravated assault charges after he allegedly forced his fiancée Marrika Maria to SWALLOW her engagement ring. Now…they’re married!

 photo ky2.jpg

Kyle, who's currently making a comeback on the music scene with Jagged Edge, claims he’s a changed man and that he no longer drinks, do drugs and has started counseling to help with his issues. In an exclusive interview with Rolling Out, the R&B crooner talked about owning up to his mistakes and feeling regret for what he did to his partner saying,

“Fellas, we as men have a problem with our apologies. If you make a mistake, own up to it and man up! That’s what I had to do to get my queen back. I apologize to my brothers of Jagged Edge, to my family, my wife and my fans and anyone I let down. I let myself down and my family, and for that I apologize. And I got myself some help. I don’t drink or do drugs anymore and I have changed my entire way of living and thinking. It’s never too late to change. I am just happy she has given me this opportunity to spend the rest of my life with her showing her how much I really do love her. I’m giving her all the hot sauce she wants [smiles].”

Putting the past behind them, Kyle and Marrika decided to “meet at the alter” for an impromptu wedding at the Suite Food Lounge ATL surrounded by close family and friends recently.

After undergoing several surgeries due to the injuries she sustained from the attack, Mrs. Norman said Kyle is the man she wants to spend the rest of her life with and believes he will never put his hands on her again. Hmph. She’s also in the process of writing a book for battered women, a term she recently embraced to help other women get out of bad situations. She told the publication,

“Crediting my deep prayers and talks with God, my deep love for Kyle and conviction that Kyle really does love me and has vowed not to place his hands on me ever again. I am not listening to the naysayers who keep trying to say he doesn’t love me and encourage me to leave. I will admit, I am in a lot of pain every day, physically. I am on several different pain medications which keep me up. I am not able to get more than three hours of sleep. I’m attending counseling three times per week and I know in my heart that God will help me get through this. I’m blessed to be alive and still have the love and support of my familyl I am finding it easier each day to shun the haters that leave me text messages and voicemails.”

Wow...well congrats to them. Let's keep our fingers crossed he learned his lesson....

Kendrick Lamar Covers EBONY Magazine’s June 2015 Special Edition Issue + Michael B. Jordan RESPONDS To ‘Fantastic Four’ Race Critics

 photo kencover.jpg

Kendrick Lamar lands the cover of EBONY magazine’s June 2015 Celebration of Black Millennial Music issue. Meanwhile, Michael B. Jordan is blasting internet trolls who are upset over his Fantastic Four role. So why are folks mad? Well…because he’s black and the role was written for a white man. Deets inside…..

Kendrick Lamar is having an amazing year thus far. His highly anticpated sophomore album To Pimp A Butterfly landed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 album sales chart and stayed there for two weeks in a row. He was recently awarded the "Generational Icon Award" by the state of California and he recently got engaged to his high school sweetheart Whitney Alford. Life is good for the west coast rapper and it’s only getting better.

The Grammy-winning recording artist has landed the cover of EBONY magazine’s June 2015 issue. And it’s a special edition issue, celebrating Black Millennial Music. And who better to have on the cover than the TDE honcho.

On Friday, Kendrick took to his Twitter to release the cover himself. Once his cover story is released, we will definitely bring it to you. Other artists being celebrated in the issue include Janelle Monae, Vic Mensa, Tink, FKA Twigs and more. You'll be able to get your hands on a physical copy once it hits stands next month.

In movie news....

Michael B. Jordan made headlines when he took on the role of Johnny Storm the Human Torch in the new Fantastic Four reboot. And it came with a lot of negative backlash since race plays a role. The Johnny Storm character was written for a white man with blonde hair and blue eyes, so some folks are all up in arms because a black man will be starring in the upcoming reboot.

The sexy actor decided to respond to the “internet trolls” who have an issue with a black man playingJohnny Storm in an open letter via Entertainment Weekly. And here’s what he said:

You’re not supposed to go on the Internet when you’re cast as a superhero. But after taking on Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four—a character originally written with blond hair and blue eyes—I wanted to check the pulse out there. I didn’t want to be ignorant about what people were saying. Turns out this is what they were saying: “A black guy? I don’t like it. They must be doing it because Obama’s president” and “It’s not true to the comic.” Or even, “They’ve destroyed it!”

It used to bother me, but it doesn’t anymore. I can see everybody’s perspective, and I know I can’t ask the audience to forget 50 years of comic books. But the world is a little more diverse in 2015 than when the Fantastic Four comic first came out in 1961. Plus, if Stan Lee writes an email to my director saying, “You’re good. I’m okay with this,” who am I to go against that?

Some people may look at my casting as political correctness or an attempt to meet a racial quota, or as part of the year of “Black Film.” Or they could look at it as a creative choice by the director, Josh Trank, who is in an interracial relationship himself—a reflection of what a modern family looks like today.

To the trolls on the Internet, I want to say: Get your head out of the computer. Go outside and walk around. Look at the people walking next to you. Look at your friends’ friends and who they’re interacting with. And just understand this is the world we live in. It’s okay to like it.

To read his entire letter, check it out here.

If you haven't checked out the trailer yet, take a peek at it HERE. Fantastic Four is slated for release in the US on August 7th.
