Q&A: “What’s your favorite smell, and why?”

Dirk eats an heirloom tomato, juice running down his chin…

A little while ago I reached out to my Facebook followers to see if anybody wanted to know anything about me or about the industry, and the response was overwhelming! I got over 50 great questions on topics ranging from my carnivorous preferences (“Chicken or beef?”) to my thoughts on the philosophy of Soren Kierkegaard. Some of the questions were so interesting that Dirk and I have decided to both weigh in; over the coming weeks we’ll be posting responses to each of our blogs in a new “Q&A” series. This is gonna be fun!

Let’s start with Gil Bear’s intriguing question: “What’s your favorite smell, and why?”

JESSE: This is going to sound cliché, but my favorite smell is Dirk. I’m usually indifferent to body odor, but for some reason the smell of Dirk makes my heart flutter. Other than that, I’ve always had an affinity for the smell of unburnt tobacco… like if you unroll a cigarette and just smell the leaves, which I find really strange because I hate the smell of a lit cigarette. I also love the smell of fresh mint and, perhaps relatedly, Bengay (it’s a locker room fantasy thing for me).

While I’m on the topic of odors, the scent I find most foul is durian, that fruit that smells like rotting flesh. I’ve never tasted it, because I can’t get past the stench. Dirk’s had it, though, and says once you get it into your mouth it actually tastes pretty good. And my mom, who used to have no sense of smell, tried it once and said it tasted like cheese. (A series of steroid treatments have since cleared up her olfactory issue; I’ll have to remember to ask her what she thinks of durian now.)

DIRK: Tea tree oil, fresh tomatoes, half-baked lasagna, ocean air. It’s all association. Fresh tomatoes because I associate it with my grandmom’s house in summer. She always grew heirloom tomatoes, which were the best ever. I used to eat them like apples, with the juice running down my chin. And tea tree oil because I think the stuff is miraculous. Ocean air is the smell of where I lived the first twelve years of my life. And the lasagna was my grandmom’s cooking, although my mom’s is just as good.

Oh, and I like the smell of a good, healthy, clean male body. I’d fall asleep in my boyfriend’s armpit any day.

We’ll be posting more answers to your excellent questions in the very near future!

    Hi Jesse
    Not sure if this is where I ask the questions?
    But here goes.
    This is very personal, but being a bottom for not to long, I still have questions on “cleaning up”
    When do you guys during filming actually do it and make sure you have no mishaps?
    Do you eat before the time?
    Just a general guideline would help.
    And also during your private sex. I have a partner and are mostly so nervous before sex.
    Kind regards.
    Chris

      I actually asked for questions on my Facebook page, but here’s fine too. We have quite a backlog of questions… hopefully we’ll get to yours before long! In the meantime, check out StreemMaster 😉
