Athena Pheromones Report - What You Need To Know

When a group of women in San Francisco was asked to mix a certain fear moment, their perfume, their love lives took off. They got more dates, got kissed more often, and had more sex. Dr. Winifred Cutler isolated the pheromone used in that research is now marketing it around the world.

How Athena Pheromones Work

Just what is this special ingredient that the women had in their perfume? This is the Athena Pheromone, 10:13 for Women. It’s a female sex attractant. It’s about a teaspoon of fluid. It has no odor, and it's added to about two ounces of a women's perfume. So what's the natural role of this chemical? I think we haven't begun to learn the full scope of it. What we know so far is this chemical serves to announce to the world, here's an attractive woman. And the way women experience it when they wear it on a regular basis is that men are more attentive to them.

Pheromone Effects

The kinds of behaviors that Dr. McCoy recorded where behaviors like sleeping next to a romantic partner hugging, petting, kissing, sexual intercourse, and formal dating. That is women were asked out in advanced by appointment. One of the things they measured and got very remarkable results were women who were the pheromone got asked out for dates more often.

How did Dr. Cutler discover Human Pheromones?

It's about 40 years of research now. It began with her studies where she was examining how a woman's pattern of sexual behavior affects her fertility. She researched in the early eighties for what was it that a man provided for a woman that left to her own devices was not sufficient. What was it about the man? What was there about the relationship that was triggering these effects?

And she searched for pheromones because of the animal literature that had preceded her by about 50 years. We know that in nature, animals communicate availability for reproduction. 

What We Know About Pheromones

We have come along way in our understanding of pheromones. They communicate, they're ready and they're ripe and they're interested and some animals are more successful in lowering the opposite sex to them than other animals are. And we've learned that the essential chemistry of that success seems to be the pheromones. In humans, found them in the underarm, in other animals that are located in other parts, and they seem to be species-specific.

For example, a pig pheromone, which will be very attractive to a pig in humans will be a sort of a keep away. It'll be aversive. 

The San Francisco Pheromones Study

So pheromones were indeed used in the San Francisco study. Six behaviors were measured. Each woman had a daily calendar, which you can look at. And that calendar provided a way for her to check off each day, each of those six behaviors that had occurred. 

At the end of the study, when the code was broken, the finding was that three out of four of the women who tested pheromones had an increase in the least in at least three different behaviors of the four intimate behaviors that were being measured. Learn more at


Those were really startlingly higher than among the placebo users. Three out of four got positive results. Three out of four got more romance.

And the women who entered this study, did they know what the study was about? Yes, they knew that they were signing up for a study that was designed to test a pheromone that was designed to increase the romance in their life. And they knew that they had a 50, 50 chance of choosing a placebo or the real thing. And they knew that they would not know until the study ended and the code was broken, which product they had tested. 

How much of that could have been swayed by the fact that the women knew they were being analyzed for sexual attractiveness?

It's a very good question. You start out with everyone who's entering a study because they want more romance.  Twenty-three percent of the people who tested the placebo got more romance. They didn't have the pheromones, they just were hoping for it, but 74 percent of the people who tested the pheromone got more romance. So it's a three to one increase. That is the difference.
