For many, summertime is the smell of freshly mowed green grass. French fries at the fair. Cotton candy. Puppy breath. Sand and ocean. And then there's the general fatigue associated with the heat and exhaustion and then you know it's summer.

I live in Japan now and my olfactions have become keener than when I was living stateside. I have learned to appreciate so much more in terms of sensory stimulation. Like "Y's" sweat, for example. She perspired well for a 27 year old Japanese lady. I never passed up an opportunity to run my hand up her armpit, and then taking a big nose flaring sniff of my fingers after removing them - divine.
That used to irk her though, but I loved her pit. Mustiness is another allure of summer I believe. She had the prettiest and fairest taut skin with a nice musty armpit. Can you imagine that? It was quite exquisite, actually. She was cute and musty. We were at a Tanabata Festival, a traditional Japanese summer festival held in July according to the Japanese lunisolar calendar. I do not recognize the Gregorian European calendar for Asian festivals for obvious reasons. There are some variations to the true date of Tanabata.
Summer festivals are the nicest events in Japan. You have the fireworks shows and kimono clad Japanese women with their traditional hand fans called sensu. Other things I love about summer are cold frosty mugs of beer and fried squid near a waterfront or a beach somewhere. I love the combination of smells I get with an ocean breeze, grilled squid, and corn.
I also believe that summer in Japan will rival any other place in the world. That includes places like Daytona Beach in Florida, Santa Monica in Los Angeles....the list goes on. The Japanese women are not afraid to show the skin and them hams, all year round. Japan during the summer is a 'leg paradise' and the ladies here aren't afraid to flaunt them around. Japan is a nation that encourages perversion on many levels, yet the men walk around sterile to the chase, so to speak. Western men will jump at any opening a lady gives them/us... As a result of so much visible skin, my leers are becoming so obvious. I used to be able to just walk and glance a little, now I can't even walk and look anymore, I have to stop and look, and it looks so obvious. Should I feel ashamed? What are the prudes going to say to me next?
Summer sun blesses the earth which yields its bounty for us to enjoy in the form of fruits and vegetables. It tans us and gives our bodies definition and vitamin nutrients. This summer is looking to be fantastic. I can smell the ocean's delights already.
