Stop describing the ocean's smell

345 45 13

You've most likely read or written a scene where the character smells the ocean and damn near orgasms at the scent of that big ol' blue puddle of water.

And I have to ask the writers who do this, have you ever been to the ocean? That shit is saltier than semen (heh, puns baby) and is full of fish, bacteria, algae, and dead things. It doesn't smell like the ocean scented candle you bought at the store or the ocean breeze body wash you use, it smells like a fish tank.

The ocean smell can be nice, but bitch it ain't so nice your character's eyes should roll in the back of their head, they cum in their pants, and have an out of body experience.

It's saltwater and fish, chill.
