According to a study published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior, people that have a great sense of smell experienced more pleasure during sex – especially women.

42 women and 28 men were given Sniffin’ Sticks (an odor sensing pen-like device used to test nasal chemosensory) to test their sense of smell and were also subjected to a survey of their sex lives.

Some of the questions asked during the survey included asking about their desires, sexual frequency, orgasm frequency and perceived pleasure during sex.

The participants were between the ages of 18 and 36.

Those that exhibited “high olfactory sensitivity rated their sexual desire encounters as more pleasurable”.

There was however no link between people’s smelling ability and their level of sexual desire.

From these findings, the researchers hypothesized that “the perception of body odors such as vaginal fluids, sperm and sweat seems to enrich the sexual experience”.

The better your sense of smell, the better your sex life will be.
