Armpit sweat can boost older women’s sex lives.

Researchers claim women who wore perfume with an added chemical found in female sweat were more likely to have sex than those who did not.

The pheromone Athena 10:13 works naturally for younger women as a “sexual attractant” but levels fall after the menopause reports the Mirror.

In the Harvard University-linked study, 22 post-menopausal women used the chemical while 22 others used a placebo.

Women on dates found a 68 per cent increase in sex compared to 41 per cent using plain perfume.

According to New Scientist magazine all women using the spray found a 41 per cent increase in kissing and other physical affection, compared to 14 per cent using the placebo.
