As a sub, I get so connected to my Domme or Master over time, that just their scent and/or taste (either clean or dirty) becomes a euphoric trigger. Sometimes just their scent in worn clothes while doing their laundry can set me off. I have read where others can get that way by the smell of leather collars, cuffs, crops, etc.
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.
