According to Mirror UK, a brave Cosmopolitan decided to wear her own vaginal fluid as a perfume and she reckons it worked. Allison Ramirez headed to a bookstore to conduct some research into how and why she could attract men using her own pheromones.
“You basically just have to stick a finger down there and then use said finger to dab your ‘natural perfume’ on your pulse points, which seems, in my opinion, a bit uncivilized,” she wrote.
According to the experts, this scent is a woman’s “secret weapon” and courtesans of medieval Europe knew it, wearing some of their vaginal secretions by dabbing it behind their ears and necks and on their chests. Trying to be a bit more civilized with her technique, Allison decided to make a perfume to use with her own fluid. With the help of a specialist, she created a sweet-smelling scent with cedar, rose and civette. Then came the vaginal fluid part…
“I used a long Q-tip to basically extract some residue from my vagina in order to use it for my perfume,” she wrote. Because bodily fluids may not ‘hold up,’ I decided that my best bet was to dip this Q-tip — saturate it, really — in the perfume I’d created, dab it on my pulse points (neck, wrists, cleavage) and then hit the town in order to see what the results would be.”
Surprisingly, the scent appears to have worked… On the first night Allison tried out her new perfume, she met up with an old friend and ended up sharing a drunken kiss with him in a photo booth.
“Then all of a sudden, teeth !” she wrote. “It was funny, but it also kind of hurt.”
She says he replied:
“I can’t help it. It’s that scent you have.”
The rest of the night was a blur, but his comment and actions were a pretty good indicator that my perfume was working. Days later, Allison wore her scent for a date with a friend of a friend. She claims he didn’t say or do anything during the date to indicate it had worked but he did text her later saying he had fun and asking her out again.
Was this the work of the perfume? Who knows…
