Pheromone Parties: Where Dirty T-Shirts Get You Laid

Illustration for article titled Pheromone Parties: Where Dirty T-Shirts Get You Laid

If you haven't found love in a scentless place, maybe you're not looking in the right spots. But chances are you haven't exhausted all your options unless you've given a Pheromone Party a whirl.


These events pair people based on the scientific idea that we all create our own unique perfume, or pheromones, to attract mates. It works for insects, cats, and other creatures, so why wouldn't it work for humans? For $30, Pheromone Parties will help you find your next date, or perhaps the love of your life by smelling their stale, sweaty clothes. Which isn't that creepy, except for all of it.

To prepare for the natural scent shindig, you sleep in the same clean, white, cotton t-shirt for three nights in a row to bottle, or in this case bag, your own "odor print." You bring the stank shirt to the fĂȘte in a ziplock, which is given a number, with bags marked blue for boys and pink for girls.

Throughout the bash, you're invited to smell the shirts as you wish. Once you find the one that really gets you going, a photographer takes your picture with the bag of your choosing. The images are shown on a running slideshow, and if you see someone holding your number, then you've found your musk match.

Except for the fact that pheromones only play a tiny, tiny part in human attraction, and for the extra-stank BO that would overpower the conscious scent of any pheromones anyway, and for the fact that people usually only give off pheromones when they're horny (and so it's unlikely there'd be much on the T-shirts just from a few days of normal use)...except for all that, this sounds like a great idea.
