Turn Off

Magazines, websites, chatrooms, etc. are all based on the fact that we get turned on through our senses. Perhaps it is a high heel shoe or a fishnet stocking. Maybe it is a high pitched squeal. What we don’t do is reverse the conversation. What turns you off? For me it revolves around smell: too much perfume, cigarettes, excess body odor. My libido appears to be intertwined with my sense of smell.

  1. Definitely smell. I’m not saying that in an “everyone must be perfectly manicured and odorless” sense where anyone who smells like a human being is automatically out of the running, but just that a person’s smell matters. If anything is covering up their natural smell — cigarettes, really acrid perfume — or they are so sweaty they smell gross, that’s definitely a deal-breaker. It’s tied to taste for me; if I can smell something on you, I’m going to be tasting it on your skin.
