Why Vegans Get More Action

It’s super sexy. And now we have the science to prove it.

You already knew that vegans were sexy, but did you know they smell sexy too?

Really! We’ve got it all going on.

Once I was resting outside after a walk when an attractive vegan came and sat down next to me. He was upwind. When I caught a whiff of him I felt an almost vampire-like response come over me.

The smell of thriving good health is simply irresistible.

Without a doubt, the yummiest-smelling partners I’ve ever had have been vegans. Each has had a unique, soft, and utterly delicious natural fragrance. Never pungent or harsh like some other partners who ate animals. Just sexy as hell.

Coincidence? I don’t think so.

You see, body odor, when it comes from healthy, plant-based humans, isn’t gross. Quite the opposite. It’s super sexy. And now we have the science to prove it…

A scientific study put seventeen men on a meat or meat-free diet for two weeks. During that time, they wore extra clothing to increase their body odor and special pads in their armpits to “collect” it. I know, weird. But hey, science.

Bear with me, beauties, the gross experiment is almost done! After the two weeks were up, thirty women were brought in to smell the fresh pads. They rated the odor samples based on “masculinity,” “pleasantness,” “intensity” and “attractiveness”.

Then the researchers repeated the study, just changing which men were on which diet. The same women were brought in after two weeks to assess their “body odor attractiveness.”

I think you already know the results, but I’ll tell you anyway:

The men on the non-meat diet were consistently judged to have the more attractive, masculine, and pleasant body odor. The meat-eaters were judged to have a more intense, less pleasant one.

That’s all to say that I was right all along: vegans really do smell sexier!
