Okay, I know vels are basically untouchable if they want to be, but tracking vels via smell still feels- creepy and a real invasion of their privacy.

It IS absolutely creepy and a huge invasion of their privacy -- agree completely. But given the rogue Velorians that are being 'located' are superhuman aliens from another world, albeit originally from Earth of the Viking era, and now on Earth illegally, they are fair game. 

And lets face it, they aren't being hunted down to be imprisioned or deported, given no cage or restraints (sans a gold choker) could hold them. And they are unkillable by anything less than an nuke, and even then, maybe not. So how do you deport someone who could fly out of our solar system to the nearest wormhole in interstellar space in a couple of months under their power, or re-enter our atmosphere like a flaming meteor. They kind of go where they want, but avoiding  entanglements, governmental or otherwise, is always a goal. 

Instead, they are being hunted by a entrepeneureal man with a super-power of his own, but strictly to introduce his clients to them.  What happens after that is up to the client and the Velorian they've just met. But as we've seen, Vels aren't drawn to the usual rich bastards that so many hot Terran women seem to marry. They are drawn to men with knowledge or skills they find interesting, and personalities that amuse them. Intelligence is more interesting than physique, just as long as their pheromones, which temporarily empower their lovers, don't cause a heart attack or anything. So a geek doing interesting science or engineering (or a mutant as in this story) who is very fit in the way of a serious runner of bicyclist or whatever would be most interesting to them. Your typical rich fat cat would be the last man they'd want to hang out with given they don't need either his money or his power. 

After all, Vels dont need much to live (they could sleep naked at the South Pole or bath in lava), and they can easily find ways to make a few bucks by modeling or doing whatever. If they are otherwise inclinded to be a clothes horse, they could do specialized salvage or find long lost things or, if they are ambitious, create a private space launch service using nothing more than their native skills. (Space flight without the need for boosters to get to initial orbit would allow nearly anyone to go into space.) 

One's imagination has to range a long ways out there to explore all the ways someone with basically Kryptonian-grade skills could make money as a freelancer. 

So, creepy yes, but hardly exploitive. Nobody takes advantage of a Vel.

Its a shame nobody every considers that verbal intercourse could be just as much fun with a vel as physical intercourse.

Lets see... what could you possibly talk about with someone who is:

1) an alien superwoman who can fly
2) superstrong in the class 500 to 1000 tonne range
3) beautiful blonde, easily a 12 on the human scale that goes to 10
4) who dives through wormholes and has visited other stars and many other planets, and fights for freedom
5) and has seen things that we can barely imagine in our wildest SciFi
6) with pheromones that give her lovers superhuman endurance 
7) who comes from a culture that prizes straight talk and frankness in all areas
8) who believe in sexual freedom to such a degree that they don't feel they truly know someone until they've shared sex
9) and is convinced that that good conversation should always end in great sex

Sounds like a pretty boring conversation... <grin>

I will put it on the Wish List... however, be aware that my muse tends to be prone to flights of fancy and she is not predictable. 

The ancient Greeks claimed the Muses were daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne, the goddess of memory. So who am I, a mere mortal, to argue with a daughter of Zeus?!!

If a synthetic version of Velorian pheromones became available in liquid or vopor form.   It would likely be extremely addictive.

There might be money to be made trafficking in pillowcases and towels used by velorians.  Extraction of eau de Velor might be profitable to Velorians where they could go to the highest bidding chemical lab to get their hair washed.

The towels and used bedding might work. Be aware that pheromones work in two ways. 

1) The airborne type that are an aphrodisiac which works on everyone who shares the same airspace. Can be very potent in closed spaces and up close. But dissipates quickly. But when a Vel walks into a room, everyone is suddenly standing at attention, so to speak.

2) The tactile version that is in their body fluids. This energizes their lovers, giving them superhuman endurance and strength at several times normal human limits, but wears off quickly once contact ceases. Given it’s in fluids, it will persist in fabrics for a while, unlike airborne pheromones. Given that virility, strength, performance and desire are all increased several times beyond normal human limits, it allows a man to keep up with a superhuman lover for many hours. Females can go on for days. It isn’t physically addicting, but once a man has been a superman in bed, no other experience ever measures up, given the way men think about such things.

In earlier stories, both types have been synthesized, but not with potency at original levels, and its wildly expensive stuff at thousands of dollars a dose.  But there is an underground industry that makes the stuff, which is very illegal given that the synthetic versions don’t provide cardio-protection like the  real stuff, and overuse will stop a man’s heart. Vels can sense which men can handle superhuman sex, but many deaths have occurred from the synthetic version, particularly among older men who are trying to impress younger women. It tends not to be abused by women as much.

I mean, I imagine the primary turn offs for a vel are-

1. People who confuse a large fortune with being interesting and virtuous.

2. Possessive and jealous personalities.

3. Bad personal hygiene, cause that shit combined with an enhanced sense of smell is- eeeeeewwwww to the max.


If you write about some rogue suprmsis on earth, I figure there would be like a- club maybe? A health club where several super humans meet up to talk and share and the occasional orgy.
