    (I think it's demosnat who always talks about how women liking a guy's scent means they're a good immune system match, and how women on birth control end up picking bad choices for mates)

    You know what, there's ads in the middle and it won't copy and paste without me having to edit it, and I'm lazy, so click the link and read.

    Complimentary immune systems has been a theory behind finding scent attractive for quite some time. I remember reading about that years ago.

    Birth control changing the way the women respond to the scent, however, I believe is relatively new, as shown by the date on that article. It's interesting to look at how that may reflect human evolution, as they address in the article.

    What about cologne? I think that has more of an affect than the pill. :mamoru:

    How can she get a man's real scent when he smells like a fucking pine tree?

    What if you met someone, not being on BC, clicked very well... and later got on BC, and still click, and still love how a guy smells? Does that play a factor, or are you just in the "lovey dovey" relationship and the point is no longer a factor?

    And I read about colognes/perfumes effecting it in cosmo, and they suggested if you don't want anything in the way of your natural sent, to start using non-scented hair products, deodorant, etc etc.

    i think theoretically the BC would make you fall out of love. Right?

    oooh i know an AWESOME statistic relating to this thread, which i've never had any reason to state before.

    apparently, strippers get *DRAMATICALLY* more tips when they are ovulating. they get slightly less when they are on their period. and strippers on birth control get less all the time, because they're never ovulating.

    Thats what I gathered from the article, that it flip flops from going on bc, to being off it. But, the guy i'm kinda with, i wasn't on BC when we first met, and I love how he smells, and like a month or so after, i went on BC, and i still love how he smells, and am still very much attracted to him as I first was.

    that doesn't fit in any single way with what i said, except for the bit about girls on their periods, because presumably on their periods they might feel less sexy.

    it does not fit with any of the following:

    - girls not ovulating that week, not on their periods that week, getting fewer tips than girls ovulating that week, not on their periods that week

    - girls on birth control NEVER on their period, therefore never sexually hindered, getting less tips all around

    i.e. the main points

    I was just thinking in terms of ovulating = increased sex drive = feel more sexy

    and

    on birth control = possible decreased sex drive in some cases = feel less sexy

    and

    on period = feel like total dogshit = may be hornier, but don't feel as sexy and probably a bit paranoid

    i see.

    the correlation between sex drive and ovulation is weak.

    the birth control thing is 50-50. some chicks get hornier.

    The mental comfort of knowing that can override a decrease in chemical sex drive.

    btw, affect vs. effect isn't a grammar mistake really :p I mean ones a verb and ones a noun, but I'd say it's like 50% a grammar mistake cuz you couldn't tell a difference if he's speaking.

    It's like you're/your.

    Now, saying "we ain't gonna go no more," that's got grammar mistakes in it. So does "what it do?"

    Actually, it wasn't. Lol.

    A grammar mistake means a syntactical error. You made a semantic or brain-farty error but it was not syntactical...

    If "affect" were only a verb-form then we could all quite happily tell Falconer to let the matter rest. But since "affect" is also a noun, we can argue that you were syntactically correct but chose the wrong word. *sigh*
