I’m wondering if any professional Dommes and Masters out there use this as a conditioning tool when owning/training a sub? Is it just my keen senses as work here?
Assume this is a Pavlovian response that can be trained like any other special dynamic that shows the proper respect and worship that a Dom deserves and the control over their sub.
Anybody share this experience, either Dom or Sub, or am I just a kinky corner case? Appreciate any comments?

I won't say I do this in general, but I do for a particular sub since I learned she has a powerful connection to my scent. As mentioned by others, scent and taste (especially scent) can trigger very powerful memories and associations. My scent does that for my sub in various ways.

Since learning that, I would incorporate this into our set-up/foreplay. When we meet for play or to do a scene, we always do a very similar routine to prepare her and get her into a submissive mindset, and also to just connect after not seeing each other for a while. A part of that routine involves her inhaling my scent. It calms/arouses/centers her before we get into things. In this way I suppose it functions sort of like an anchoring technique, or a pre-care (cf. after care) routine.

Like I said, I don't do this in general, but for this sub, I know she likes it, it gets her into a certain mindset, and she finds it pleasurable, and so I do it all the time when we meet. I made it a part our routine, because routines are great. She loves it and consistently talks about it as one of her favorite parts of our meetings. I love it because she loves it and I take great pleasure in allowing her to indulge in something that has this sort of effect on her.

Thank you Herero, for the great response. Your way of incorporating scents and tastes into the foreplay/setup is exactly aligned to my thinking. It triggers an emotional and physiological response in your sub. I feel the same way and nice to see it is recognized and utilized by others.

Interesting, and possibly pertinent.

"Strange as it may sound, some scientists suspect that the humble armpit could be sending all kinds of signals from casual flirtation to sounding the alarm. That’s because the body’s secretions, some stinky and others below the threshold your nose can detect, may be rife with chemical messages called pheromones. Yet despite half a century of research into these subtle cues, we have yet to find direct evidence of their existence in humans."

I think that, There is always a memory or trigger attached to a scent or taste. Whenever Ma'am was away she would put a pair of her panties inside the pillow case on my bed.

And sometimes just for fun.

I'm a sucker for the scent and feel of Leather and Latex so..... they also trigger responses in me.


Just my 2 cents.


Oh those shorts!

It’s not all that uncommon, the scent thing. I’ve encountered l it among some of the primal types, some of the protocol types, and some of the humility. Pretty common among leather Fetishist as well.

As for olfactory response it’s quite easy to train in multiple ways. Fist it happens whether you train it or not. It’s the most common sense associated to memories.

To train simply toss in the appropriate reinforcement to the goal. And tell anyone who makes you feel like a corner case to go fuck themselves, unless degradation is your thing.

I am one who gets turned on by cologne, sometimes that outdoor smell , other smells.
Lingering on a shirt, on me....

I imagine if both were on board, Dom and sub that smell could most certainly be used for some purpose.
