Women's tears of sadness are a chemical turnoff for men
Recently, I read some “woman bible” that claims men like seeing the softer side of their spouses and much as they may tease us a little when we get all emotional, it’s good to have a cry in front of your man. Apparently, our tears arouse and awaken their own tenderness. And just as I was busy working on my tears manufacturing skills, I bumped into this article that claims to have Scientific proof of how women’s emotional crying is a major turnoff for men. And it’s got nothing to do with how ugly we look while at it. :roll:
According to this study… a woman’s tears of sadness momentarily lowers a man’s testosterone level. And get this: when he’s offering that shoulder to cry on and sniffs at the unnoticeable odor of tears, they send some chemical signal and just like that… TURNOFF!
When men sniffed actual tears, they found women in some photographs less sexually attractive. And the men weren't empathetic either. (What happened to tears arousing a man’s tenderness?)

What are you looking for?
Anyway, this doesn’t mean that this chemical signal is unique to women’s tears. As per Weizmann neurobiologist Noam Sobel (also author of this study), "It's hard to get men to volunteer to cry" in a lab. So they just had to do the study on women first.
Sobel’s interpretation of the findings is that "the signal is serving to time sexual behavior. It is a signal that allows its user to say, 'Now is not the right time.' I predict there are other signals that say, 'Now it is.'"
Wonder if a man’s emotional tears would have a similar effect on a woman. Well, good thing Sobel has found a good man crier so we just have to wait and find out.
