The Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation conducted studies on both men and women to find out what specific scents caused sexual arousal.
They recruited 25 male medical student volunteers and tested them with different aromas, including perfumes, floral and food odors. Hirsch was astounded by his finding: “Much to our surprise,” he wrote, “…cinnamon buns caused greater changes in penile blood flow than any other odor.” Recognizing the results might only indicate that medical students are hungry, Director Hirsch conducted another study, this time with 31 men between the ages of 18 and 64, using 30 scents and 46 test odors (some were combinations). Here are the results.
Top Scents that Sexually Arouse Men:
1. A combination of lavender and pumpkin pie showed the greatest measurable arousal, increasing penile blood flow by an average of 40%.
2. Cinnamon buns were still popular, but not as much so. In combination with licorice and doughnuts, they finished second by increasing penile blood flow by 31.5%.
3. A combination of pumpkin pie and doughnuts came in third, with an increase in penile blood flow of 20%.
4. Negatives: Among the least favored odors were cranberry and chocolate.
5. Director Hirsch also found differences dependent on men’s ages and characteristics. Older men liked vanilla better than younger men. Men who said they have the best sex lives preferred strawberry. And men who said they have intercourse most frequently liked lavender, Oriental spice and cola. In fact, penile blood flow increased in response to every odor that was tested.
So, perhaps put those little pills away. Just bake your man a pumpkin pie or some cinnamon rolls!
Here is the result of a similar study for women.
