As Oscar Wilde once said "I can resist anything except temptation".lordoffiling wrote: ↑Mon Nov 12, 2018 12:31 pmCan we talk about pheromones for a minute?
I’ll use a personal example to start off: There was a girl who I used to work with some years ago. She was a smoker. Normally a “so what?” fact in my brain, except, she smoked the same brand as a girl who used to tease me relentlessly in high school.
When she would walk into my office after a smoke break, it was honestly all I could do to stay in my chair. And indeed, it’s a good thing I did, because if I’d stood up she’d see quite plainly how much I enjoyed her presence. I was not myself around her at those times, not even close. I wanted her more than anyone else I’ve ever wanted in my entire life, easily. She could have asked me for the keys to my car and I’d have given them to her just to make her smile.
All because of a weird chemical association that linked her smokes to strong sexual memories in my brain.
So the question is this: Let’s say my smoking coworker decided she wanted me. I’m married, I’d ordinarily say no, but let’s say she came in smelling like that. No contest, I assure you.
Would you have reacted to the same stimulus in the same way if the smoker had been a man? If not then no matter how much arousal might have come from the association with the scent of menthol there was nothing about your experience that would have completely taken away your free will.
The point about the succubus pheromones is that nobody has been able to resist them, not even trained monster hunters who suspected what was going on. We saw here how quickly Naomi went from her mood of triumph at discovering "proof" of Teddy's secret to abandoning every single thing she cared about previously just to jump Teddy's bones. It's also beyond reason that every single one of a football team would secretly be bi-curious without something else coming in to play.
Oh and if your co-worker had known about your particular weakness and had exploited it that wouldn't be sexual assault or rape but it would mean that she was a really shitty person.
