Athena Mission


Athena is a biomedical research institute dedicated to improving the quality of healthcare for women.

The primary focus of Athena Institute is Behavioral Endocrinology -- the relationship between your behavior and your physiology

Athena Institute's research addresses avoiding unnecessary hysterectomy and ovariectomy; sexual response in women; menopause; osteoporosis; hormone replacement therapy; breast cancer; mammography; sex during menstruation; and pheromones as sexual attractants.


" My research has consistently focussed on what behavior a woman can engage in to increase her power, well-being, and vitality."

---Winnifred B. Cutler, Ph.D.

A portion of the profits from our book and pheromone sales helps to fund Athena's on-going research.
