Sexual liking essence originate in pests

It is the first time that a neurotransmitter has been shown to play a role in sexual preference in mammals. According to scientists in China, A chemical in the brain controls sexual liking in mice. 

Male mice bred without serotonin lose their preference for females. At this time therefore any potential links between serotonin and human sexual preferences must be considered somewhat tenuous. Sexual behaviour in mice is thought to be driven by their sense of smell. A series of experiments demonstrated that these mice had lost the preference for females shown by unmodified males. When presented with a choice of partners, they showed no overall preference for either males or females.

Experts have warned about the dangers of drawing conclusions about human sexuality.
