Aroused by odors?

Olfactophilia - for the love of odors

Smell is well known as being an important and highly evocative sense. Scent memory is something we're all familiar with: the perfume your mother wore when you were a child, for example, will always seem familiar to you even if you can't pinpoint exactly why.

It's no surprise, then, that olfactophilia can form an important part of sex. Everyone smells different, and people going through breakups are often floored by catching a whiff of their recent ex's own unique scent. However subconsciously, odor is a vital part of how we perceive the people who we're close to.

Naturally, for some people this goes a little further. Odors can form a vital part of kink for the people who are most aware of them--be that the smell of someone's sexual fluids or even the scent of their sweat.

    Leather it's a great material for making all kinds of kinky accouterments: it's used in leather wear such as collars, cuffs and corsets as well as in paddles and floggers and crops. For another, it's long been used as a material for all kinds of S&M and kinky clothing - for example the jockstrap,that's part of a longstanding and well-established kink subculture. Leather is used as the name of a subculture in its own right, one generally associated with kinky gay men. Leather 'families' are essentially poly groups containing people who are especially into leather; they're a longstanding tradition with many of their own rules and habits.
    While PVC and latex are often lumped in with each other, there are some fetishists and kinksters who have a clear preference for one over the other. The two materials can look and feel different, though both have similar applications in terms of clothing and accessories (not to mention bedsheets and other kinky apparatuses!). PVC is often cheaper than latex, making it a great choice for someone just starting out with fetish wear. Check out our magazine section for some ideas on how to make kink clothing work for you and where to find outfits a little off the beaten track.
    Foot fetishes are actually very common, and are amongst the most frequently mentioned fetishes in popular media. The feet are a body part sometimes associated with smell and unattractiveness, which gets some people's taboo centres working. They're also erogenous zones for many, particularly as most people aren't that used to having them touched. Boots, heels and other footwear are precisely the kind of sexualised accessories so many people fall for, meaning that the feet inside them can also end up as the object of someone's desire. There are tonnes of feet videos and feet pictures online for those who can't get enough of pretty feet. If you have a foot fetish, you might find that you're especially drawn to a certain kind of foot: large feet, small feet, ones in see-through shoes or bare feet.
