Aroma of pumpkins increases sexual arousal in men
A new study has indicated that the smell of pumpkin increases sexual arousal in men faster than anything, including your favorite perfume.
The Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation of Chicago conducted a study "to investigate the impact of ambient olfactory stimuli upon sexual response in the human male." In other words, they wanted to know what smells turn a man on.
It turns out the aroma of pumpkin gets a man's blood rushing more than any other, reports ABC News.
The foundation says it studied 31 volunteers, men between the ages of 18 and 64. Dr. Alan Hirsch, the foundation's director, selected 24 different odourants, or fragrances for the study.
