Health Zone - Bodytalk: Breast-feeding.
Researchers have discovered that breast-feeding women and newborn babies give off smells that boost sexual desire.
It's thought that pheremones signal to other women that the environment is safe to give birth and raise youngsters, according to New Scientist magazine.
In a test, 45 women who hadn't given birth were asked to sniff pads that had been worn by nursing mums. The volunteers reported heightened sexual desire and fantasies.
In some countries, newly-wed women are made to spend time with new mothers to increase their own chances of conceiving.
