Attractants - Pheromones: What is There to Know?Pheromones are chemicals that are released from animals and human beings. These chemicals are attractants that tell other animals a wide range of things. Things such as type of animal, sex of the animal, social group that the animal is assigned to and if the animal is in heat or not. These pheromones are found in bugs and also aquatic life as-well. These chemicals are freed by the body by excretions. The term pheromones came about in 1959 defining it as chemical substances excreted by animals to trigger reproductive behaviour response from a recipient of the same species.
- Territorial markers are considered to be able to ward off others.

Sex-attractant pheromones are usually the ones that marketers capitalize on in the adult industry. Male pheromone are just what they appear to be. They attract the opposite sex and provide the feeling to be able to want to mate. These are also considered natural way of reproducing. Most animals only mate in order to reproduce. So this is very key to species survival.
