THE SMELL OF SEX

 

Hair is not essential for life but its presence is important to many people’s happiness and self esteem. In addition it serves as a secondary sexual characteristic in humans, so its presence and distribution helps distinguish the sexes. It has another important property in sex. It retains moisture and smells, thus acting as a powerful aphrodisiac by increasing and maintaining sexual desire.

Women have chosen to remove this vital sexually distinguishing characteristic and with it remove the scent for which it is designed to accent and preserve.


Cultural changes and concerns about hygiene have led us to remove this powerful natural occurring aphrodisiac, one of the most powerful forces in nature.

Using my own experience, I asked a select group of men, if the they purposely  avoided washing their hand following an evening of intense foreplay.  ALL admitted they had purposely refrained from washing their hand, and enjoyed the aroma for hours.

I am reminded of my first sexual experience. I was 14 and she was 15, neither of us knew much about hygiene and the smell was intense, that’s the thing I remember the most. She introduced me into the wonderful world of sex and the smell was absolutely intoxicating!

Now, with my age, I don't miss the sexual act itself as much as I miss the “game”. The flirting, the fantasy the smell. Those subtle sexual undercurrents that flow between men and women. That amorous glance “across a crowded room”. But most of all I miss the power, the pleasure, and the promise of an erotically inspired, naturally occurring, hard, throbbing dick.

VIAGRA

Viagra...The revenge of the impotent:  Revenge for all those faked orgasms. Now they will never know if its real or if its pharmaceutical.

 

Ménage `a Trois

The most erotic sexual arrangement is a three way, more specifically two males with one female.  If the number is increased there is a tendency to pair off.  There is a basic human nature reason for this.  Men are naturally voyeurs and females are naturally exhibitionists this is demonstrated vividly by men’s voyeuristic desire to view pornography and the little if any interest women have for it.  I have never known a women that had more than a casual curious interest in it and I have never known a man who honestly didn’t have an intense interest in it.  I am sure some will deny it however, I think it is true in all men. 

The three way arrangement two men on woman allows the woman to display a full exhibitionistic range and the male to have a great view of all the activity.  There is another interesting sidelight to this because it illustrates why women have this insatiable urge to shop and enhance their beauty and further illustrates why men have little interest in shopping but enjoy looking at women.

 

THE EVOLUTION OF SEX AND SMELL


Sexual activity in lower animals (lower than humans) is controlled entirely by the sense of smell. It is mediated through pheromones. Pheromones are chemicals that trigger a natural behavioral response in other members of the same species.  Sex is engaged in for only one reason, reproduction. Pheromones are like hormones, hormones carry information from one organ of the body to another organ of the body and travel by way of the bloodstream. Pheromones carry information from one member of a species to another and the information travels through the atmosphere.

In some animals there is a special organ located high in the nasal septum called the vasonasal organ (VNO) of Jacobson, this organ is especially designed for sex. Humans anatomically have a VNO, but there is some controversy about whether it is functional or not.

Sexual smell in humans is created by the action of bacteria on the secretions of the apocrine sweat glands located in the armpit and genitalia of both sexes. The secretions themselves are odorless the action of the bacteria on the secretions produce the characteristic odor.

Insects make the best use of pheromones. Bees for instance have certain pheromones for locating hives, locating flowers with the best nectar, sending the information to other bee’s and back to the hive. That’s why flowers smell. They also have pheromones for danger and reproduction.

Lower animals below humans do not engage in casual sex. Sex is engagent only for one reason, reproduction. The urge is entirely driven by smell, they care little about appearances.

Unfortunately because of self imposed cultural and hygienic biases we have chosen to deny ourselves not only the pleasures our nose can provide but much of the information it has to offer. I am reminded of the first time I visited Europe years ago. You could smell the people and the different cultures. This may still be possible in some areas I suppose, but not like it used to be. Globalization and concerns for cleanliness has changed everyone.

SEX EDUCATION

It is no wonder children and adults are so confused about sex.  This is because they get so many conflicting messages about what they see and what they are told.  “Don’t touch yourself”, “Don’t look up little girl’s dresses”, etc.  Then after you have learned about how bad this type of behavior is from your parents and teachers you learn from other children that your parents are actually “doing it” while you have been told not to even think about it.  This was a real surprise for me and it took me along time to even believe it.  At this phase of your life you tend to believe as absolute fact anything your teachers or adults tell you.

In the meantime you are seeing all these provocative depictions of sex and how great it is depicted overtly in television, movies and various publications.  It’s a wonder any of us ever turn out normal.

THAT WORD

To illustrate the innocence of childhood I am reminded of an incident about 45 years ago when my oldest son was in the 1st or 2nd grade. We were sitting at the dinner table and out of the blue he loudly blurted out “Fuck”.  My wife and I were completely stunned.  I immediately took him aside and told him that he was never to use that word again and furthermore it wasn’t even a word.  I tried not to make too big of a deal about it but at the same time I wanted to make it clear that he was not to use that word in any way. 

About 2 or 3 weeks later he came up to me and said “Daddy, you know that word” a kid from school knows a third grader that’s “DONE IT”

HORNY PURITANS 

The puritans were probably the horniest and sexiest people in the world because they were not allowed to see anything or discuss anything related to sex.  When  a subject is openly discussed and  there is no mystery it loses some of its appeals. And the mystique of sex disappears.  There is something to be said for keeping some things secret. 

For kids now there seems to be no secrets.  Girls barely keep there pubic area covered.   In fact  it doesn’t make much difference anymore because they shave it and there is not much to look at anyway. 

SELF AGGRANDIZEMENT

It is difficult to write about yourself, your thoughts and your activities without occasional hyperboli.  I call it poetic license.  I like to quote that great philosopher Muhammad Ali when he said “It ain’t braggin' if you done it”.    

PEDOPHILIA

I have always have been interested in all types of sex but the only sex I could not understand was Pedophilia.  I just couldn’t grasp it.  One day several years ago I was on my way to Dallas and listening to NPR.  The program was discussing various types of sexuality and the subject of pedophilia came out.  An unidentified man called in and identified himself as a pedophile.  He said he wanted to explain pedophilia as he saw it.  What he said made a lot of sense and I had never heard or read about it before. He said it all was strictly a matter of power, domination and submission.  That explained everything.  Actually all sex has its basis in domination and submission.  This goes from all types and all extremes.  The sexual act itself is an illustration of domination and submission with the male classically being dominant and the female being more submissive.  This is characterized essentially by the penis penetrating the female which is a classic example of submission and domination.  The extreme is sadism and masochism where individuals like to inflict pain and others like to be dominated and receive pain.
