A man steps out of the shower, puts on a pair of tennis shoes and some running shorts, then runs three miles without deodorant on a warm morning. He is still clean but he has worked up a sweat. There is a certain smell about him. Different parts of his body generate different odors, each of which are distinct to that particular art of the body and unique to each individual man.
Overall his body has a rather sweet smell. Under his arms the smell, noticeably masculine, is stronger due to the glands in this area and rapidly growing bacteria. Lower on his body, his loins have also developed a distinct smell. The odors here are influenced by a number of things: specialized glands, hair, and compressed skin. If the man stopped to urinate during the run, you might detect a hint of urine. If the nylon fabric of his running shorts rubbed his penis, it might have caused a secretion. His anus is also playing a roll, considering the fact that even a freshly washed anus will still smell like an anus in a short time and influence this area, especially after a three mile run.
All of this adds up to a purpose. And remember I’m not talking about an unclean body. If the innocuous growth of bacteria that lends itself to our natural body odor remains unchecked, it leads to filth. On the other hand, just as our body chemistry responds to the sense of touch and visual stimulants, the purpose of the sense of smell, as it relates to our sexual desire, is to stimulate us, and it does so powerfully. Without the sense of smell, without exposure to our natural odors, intimacy is more of a mechanical endeavor practiced on the surface.
If you are worried about your stock portfolio, chances are the above image will not have a great deal of impact on you. But if you were actually smelling this man’s body, then fretting about stocks and bonds will instantly leave you mind like mist in the hot sun. When the smell of your lover enters your nostrils, an instantaneous chemical message spreads throughout your entire body. These odors spark passion. You are drawn further into the depths of desire and all other worldly issues are soon lost deep within the far recesses of your mind. You are driven to experience your lover with absolute abandon, all of which is within the blueprint of Mother Nature’s grand design. If, on the other hand, his or her smell puts you off, it’s likely because the two of you are not chemically in sync, which is precisely why no one should ever commit to a marriage without first sleeping with their prospective partner.
There is a clear reason for this. The areas of your body that produce the most distinct odors also produce and secret a chemical known as pheromones. Pheromones are designed to impact the behavior of the individual that breaths them in. They are individually specific and affect different people differently. In other words, you may be instantly stimulated by a person’s pheromones and indifferent to someone else’s, or even put off. Conversely, your pheromones will affect other people the same way.
So our natural smells are part of the scheme of things. Perfume, deodorant and body wash manufacturers spend zillions of dollars convincing us that even the slightest natural body odor is a bad thing, when just the opposite is true. On a clean, un-deodorized body, sweat is a good thing. The ingredients of human sweat is a good thing. So when we sanitize our bodies before getting into bed with our lovers, are we actually cheating ourselves and them?
