Scented Lure

It’s strange, what turns people on. We’d just watched a lecture on blue sharks – sleek, graceful and deadly. The room was still dimmed, but people stood and began to ask questions.

I covered my bulging pants with my laptop and sniffed softly – I could smell someone else’s arousal. My friends called me “Bloodhound” in elementary school – I’ve always considered smell as useful as sight and sound. Somewhere amidst the cloying perfumes and soapy morning skin was the alluring scent of lust.

“Which sense do you believe oceanic sharks rely upon most for prey acquisition?” someone asked. I slid carefully through the warm bodies, changing direction if the smell got weaker.

“The olfactory abilities of sharks are the stuff of legend, of course,” the professor said. “Though it helps them find prey, it also makes fishing them much easier.”

There were quite a few women in the room, mostly graduate students and young researchers. The scent led me towards a lovely brunette near the projection room door. When I slid up next to her, I was sure.

“I sense you love sharks as well,” I whispered, my teeth near her neck. Startled, she leaned back into me and undoubtedly felt my erection. Our eyes locked, and she nodded.

In the projection room, the speaker’s voice was muffled but still audible. “Once the shark closes in, it is likely that all senses contribute to the final strike.”

Her creamy skin was dazzling in the dim light, and the smell of her lust quickly filled the small room. I lunged at her and there was a flash of latex before she engulfed me in slick heat, soft moans and strong limbs – the sensory circuits in my brain quickly overloaded.

“Who caught who?” she whispered right before I came.
