Ethics of Pheromones?
Ok, so I stumbled on a website advertising bottled human pheromones (sp?). The purpose of these pheromones is to increase your attraction level. That meaning, if you are wearing them, the opposite sex will find you more attractive, you will appear more sexually appealing, and, basically, you're more likely to get lucky.
Ok, ignore that this is probably a hoax. Let's just assume for a minute that these things work.
Is it ethical? After all, it is supposedly something we secrete naturally. This is just a higher concentration.
Would you be unfairly bending a persons will towards your own ends? Keep in mind, if these work, then some of these people wouldn't so much as give you the time of day. Furthermore, they are unaware of the influence that the pheromones have had on them.
Are these any better than drugs you might slip in someones drink to make them more sexually aroused? The end is the same in both cases, and the person being affected is unaware they are being chemically influenced.
Discuss. Your opinions?
