Is Smoking a Turn On?

Turn On or Turn Off? Smoking

When done right, smoking can be a turn on for some. By right, I don't mean healthy, of course. I mean using the cigarette to gesture. To inhale with thought; exhale with contentment.

And it never hurts if it's onscreen, so smell is not an issue. Smell — and cancer — is smoking's great turn off. But is it enough to make the most pensive inhale a drag?

I don't really care, as long as they don't blow it all over me.

It depends...sumtimes people really look charming with cigarettes (with or without the smoke) also depends if u r a smoker as well.Obviously a non smoker finds it turn off!I find it turnon not because i was a smoker its because a man feel more calm and relaxed after a puff...ah! thats really charmed many women but not in terms of health.Health is important though however........ wats more if Jude Law smokes in front of me...ur so charming,dude?LOL!Can't be a turned off for many............oooh!Get more of your cigarettes love potion;hehehehehe!

It depends. My bf smokes pot, I don't like. I met him that way so I'm not planning on trying to change him. We just had a son and he's cut down a lot. I hope he does though eventually. I smoke occasionally when I go have a drink. But its rare now.

I hate smoking, my parents do it and I promised myself I could never be with someone who smokes. I cant wait to have clean smelling clothes.

I voted no. I am an avid non cigarette smoker, I even have a club, it's called the 'I Don't Smoke Cigarettes Because I'm Not Fucking Stupid Club.' Sometimes I make smokers mad when I talk about how great my club is, but whatever. I think it's hilarious. However, I always find myself dating cigarette smokers. Maybe I'm subconsciously attracted to them, I don't know. I like the bad boy types, and a majority of them are cigarette smokers.

I have asthma so I won't even hang around casinos. If a guy doesn't even value hinself enough to stay away from the cancer stix, then why would I think he's worth dating?

It's not a turn-off when you do it MODERATELY. On the other hand, uncontrollable chain-smoking makes you look like you have no will power. It ruins your teeth and skin and you can't hold your breath for long, that's no good. ;x LOL Also I don't think I could live with someone who smoked indoors 24/7. But smoking a little when you're out with your friends is kind of cool, I guess.

i could only date someone who smokes as much as me, and has similar smoking habits. not more, not less. they have to be able to tolerate indoor smoking!! its not really a turn off or turn on. it just is. i dont think i could date someone who doesnt smoke, actually.

after watching my father fight through throat cancer from smoking, and it completely ruining my early teen years (i was so distraught), i pledged to NEVER EVER smoke (and i havent!) and i will never date a man who smokes... that is my # 1 no no... even if he says he will quit, i dont give a shit how great he is, i would never go there.

I'm with Roaringsilence - it can look really glam and sexy in photos or on film, but not in real life.

Major turn off. It can looks somewhat cool in movies and of course, the old black & white movies made it look downright necessary, but in reality? Heck no. EWW.

by the way - i was talking about smoking simply as a fashionable trait as this story was discussing. i'm not advocating smoking whatsoever - i think it's a disgusting habit and the fact that my father still smokes, despite being a cancer survivor leaves me speechless.

My boyfriend smokes sometimes, and I've made it clear to him that I don't like it, and that it is a major turn off for me. When I'm cuddling and kissing my boyfriend, the last thing I want to smell is nasty cigarettes. He normally doesn't do it when he's around me because he knows I don't like it. However, if he were to do it around me, he will not be getting laid that night. The smell just literally turns me off, and I do not want to be getting close and personal with him when he smells like that.

Find it disgusting, not to mention second hand cigarette smokes triggers my asthma. I could never date/kiss a smoker.

Smoking is gross no matter who's doing it or how it's done.

i'm also with roaring silence - noone can deny the glamour of women in the 1920's with a cigarette in a filter (".) also, the first scene in romeo and juliet when leo is writing poetry pensively as he pulls on his roll up. however, yep in real life - i could never date a smoker. though they may look effortlessly cool or what have you. i also think it's slightly a double standard- it can look hot on men, but now on women it's a definite 'ew no'

I'm with roaringsilence, it looks cool in photos and in film, but in real life it's disgusting. Every time you kiss that person they will taste like cigarettes--who wants that?
