Thats what I thought too.

I know its not the topic but I actually think lesbians smell different to hetero women. I used to work in an environment that was heavily homosexual and I was one of the odd ones out. I swear the women who are lesbians smell different to other women. I dont know why that would matter as I am a woman and Im not attracted to women so I dont know why I would notice that hetero women smell different to gay women. (and lesbians smell less attractive to me)

well, i chose the word "smell" because it is a noun and a verb. yes, gay men do smell different, on a micro level, and they also smell different things.

Time article,00.html

"Even though last week's study strengthens the argument that desire may be triggered in part by chemical signals, it doesn't necessarily prove that gay men are preordained to pick up on male pheromones. It could also be that their brains learn to respond to them over time and with experience.

You might be able to test the proposition, says Hamer, by doing the experiment on people at different ages, to see if the response changes after early childhood. Nobody has tried that yet. The Swedish team is currently working on a related study to test how lesbians respond to female pheromones. Last week's paper also can't answer the question of how important a role pheromones play in desire. "
