"My guess is that a lot of our communication is influenced by chemosignals." Parsing pheromones Animals, plants and even bacteria produce pheromones.These precise cocktails of compounds trigger various reactions in fellow members of a species—not all of which are sexual.Still, after decades of research, the story in humans is not quite so clear.Rather than positing that single, pheromone-esque compounds strike us like Cupid's arrow, investigators now suggest that a suite of chemicals emitted from our bodies subliminally sways potential partnerings.
For the last five months, as many as 16 people a day have been arriving and “aggressively demanding sex” from Matthew Herrick, according to a complaint filed Wednesday by the West Harlem man’s attorneys.The first incarnation of the Sex Pistols was singer Johnny Rotten (John Lydon), lead guitarist Steve Jones, drummer Paul Cook and bassist Glen Matlock.Matlock was replaced by Sid Vicious (real name John Ritchie) early in 1977."It's a living hell." Besides sharing photos and details about Herrick, some profiles reportedly claim he is HIV positive and that interested men should not be discouraged if he's resistant because it's "part of an agreed upon rape fantasy or role play." Herrick and his lawyers say Grindr shares some of the blame for offering a "dangerous product," comparing the app to a car battery."If the manufacturer and seller both know the battery could explode, there's a duty to inform users of the risk," attorney Carrie Goldberg told CNN.
