I did quite enjoy seeing Scott and Heather squirm as I read this story this morning. It's a real thing, but I honestly can't see anyone outside of geeky scientists doing it.
Will sniffing a T-Shirt of a prospective partner help you find love?
So called Pheromone Parties have met some success in parts of the country. Guests are asked to bring a T-shirt they’ve slept in, and then you pick a partner based on scent.
There is some science involved. Research studies using similar T-shirt experiments have shown that people prefer different human scents than our own…and our immune response — which researchers say is nature's way of preventing inbreeding and preserving genetic adaptations developed over time.
