Do human pheromones really exist? When thinking about pheromones I think about women syncing periods when they live together. I lived with a friend once who had super irregular cycles and apparently I’m susceptible to something that she emits because when living with her, I would go to the bathroom and without warning the crimson… Continue reading Love Potions
