Enjoying the scent of someone who is in your presence is completely and totally different than sticking your nose in her hair and you know that. But once again, you’ve displayed just how much you feel that men are entitled to women’s bodies. So, we know where you stand on this — great!

However, I don’t recommend trying to act on that impulse with random women you meet. You are likely to get slapped. It also fits the legal definition of assault and might result in criminal or civil liability.

“An assault is the act of inflicting physical harm or unwanted physical contact upon a person or, in some specific legal definitions, a threat or attempt to commit such an action. It is both a crime and a tort and, therefore, may result in either criminal and/or civil liability.”
