It’s not everyday you come a cross an article with the title “Got BO? It just means you’re sexy!” But when you do, you tend to read up on it because I’ve never seen in super sexy homeless people and they smell straight up rank!
Symptoms people tend to be embarrassed about mentioning to any and everyone, like the presence of heavy body odor, is caused by the apocrine glands in the armpits and groin. These glands release sexy pheromones.
“There are two types of sweat glands — eccrine and apocrine.
Eccrine glands are found all over the body but in higher concentration in the armpits, hands and feet.
‘They regulate body temperature and secrete a mixture of water, salt and minerals such as sodium. This doesn’t smell unless left on the skin for several hours, which allows time for bacteria to start multiplying,’ says consultant vascular surgeon Mark Whiteley.”
Because of this gland we take baths and wear deodorant.
The apocrine glands in the armpits and groin that develop during adolescence secrete a sticky, oily substance that becomes pungent on your skin. With a much more “distinctive” smell.
“‘It’s there for a reason, and signals to others that you’re brimming with hormones and ready to procreate,’ says Mr Whiteley.
‘It’s largely a cultural thing that we don’t like the smell of BO, possibly because it signals someone is sexually primed and a competitor.’
Most people grow out of BO when hormone levels lower in the mid-20s.”
