Women Love Those Stinky Shirts, Part II

I warned you that I wasn't done with this subject.

So yes, it's become widely accepted that gals get turned-on when they smell a man's sweat. But wait! It's not quite that simple:
"All male pheromones are not equally attractive, and some of the myths stem from an understandable confusion over their names. The male pheromone androstenone is not the same as androstenol. Androstenol is the scent produced by fresh male sweat, and is attractive to females. Androstenone is produced by male sweat after exposure to oxygen - i.e. when less fresh - and is perceived as highly unpleasant by females (except during ovulation, when their responses change from ‘negative’ to ‘neutral’)."

Is this why women oogle construction workers, but not their sendentary unwashed boyfriends? This must be it.
