Thought of the Day 2010 #140 - Sexy Scent

I had a dream the other night that I gave some guy a hug and he just smelled sexy. Not a cologne, not really just sweat, although that was part of it. It was arousing in my dream, but alas, the dream didn't take me any further.

I awoke thinking quite a bit about scent and previous lovers and non-lovers who just had *that* scent. It's interesting how the particular scents have been burned in my brain. I can recall very specific details of those people and my surroundings when the scent piqued my interest. Almost like the smell triggered parts of my brain normally dormant. Fascinating response, really. And, normally, quite surprising to me when I'm enraptured by it. Pleasant and overwhelming obsession.

Does daily showering make us less sexually aroused? Or does a shower wash away the bacteria to leave just the pleasant scents to flourish? I recall seeing studies saying the former is probably true. Although, can you imagine a society with no bathing? Not only would you smell those to whom you are chemically attracted, but also those whom are repugnant. Especially those you find repugnant, I would assume. Not good.

Do you know of what I write? Do you know which scents drive you deliciously mad?

Your posts are rolling from "no sleep" to "so angry I could spit tacks" to "sex dreams" and "smells" Is someone hormonal or what? LOL
