Have you ever smelled the seat of a cushioned chair after someone's been sitting in it all day? I have. I'm the last one to leave at night and over the years, I've smelled all the chairs in my office. It's strange how certain people have certain smells, like the fat lady at the front desk, her chair smells the worst. Might be from her sedentary work ethic, poor hygiene, all that fast food she eats or all of the above, I don't know. If you become close with someone, be it male or female, and if you ever get the chance to smell their pants, say, after having sex and them going to the bathroom, I highly recommend it. Just pick up their pants and take a whiff of the inside crotch area. You'd be surprised at what you find. I don't recommend this for the faint of heart, but if you're feeling adventurous, you should actually take the plunge and smell their underwear... that's where the odor is the strongest and unfiltered. I only judge those whom I already have a poor opinion of, like the fat lady at the front desk. Others, like lovers, I find it attractive and it actually makes me desire them more. Pheromones are amazing and sexy and, yeah, sometimes disgusting. Hey, dogs do it all the time, so don't judge me.
