For Writers: You Smell… Sexy?

you stink husky

Today’s writer topic comes from QSFer Richard Wood:

For LGBT or even “normal” sex with aliens, the pheromones are going to be WRONG almost certainly.

Should a story include use of specially made perfumes or scents designed to overcome this turn-off to relationships?

It’s an interesting idea. Why would an alien race smell sexy to us? Many people in the human race don’t titillate my nose buds. (Nose buds – is that a thing?).

So my questions today – How would we get around this problem? Would those pheremones actually be a turn-on for some (hey I kinda like skunk and gas smells. Stop looking at me like that)? And have you written or read any stories that dealt with this issue?
