    All over her?

    What does the sentence mean "all over her"?

    I quoted a sentence from book for your reference.
    "she thought she might be sick; she could smell him all over her."

    The man she had sex with a moment before is gone now but still she can smell him. Simply his smell is still in her nostrils though he has gone.

    Re: All over her?

    I strongly disagree with the response of Johnnyxxx. There is no reason to presume that sex was involved or has occurred. "All over her" just means overwhelmingly. "I smelled it all over me" means that the smell was powerful and that I had to take strong action to get rid of it.

    It could be after shave lotion.

    Re: All over her?

    'She was standing near a guy stinking of sweat on a bus; she could smell him all over her.'
    Is it possible?

    Ok

    The sex was definitely involved, you can find it in the original text. So the thick smell of the man she had sex with a moment before was still in her nostrils.

    Re: All over her?

    It could involve no sex if my above sentence was possible.

    Re: All over her?

    If Polyester had named the title and author of the book he was quoting from in the original post, we could have reached a correct conclusion much sooner.

    I could not agree more; knowing the source helps much. But what seems strange to me is why Polyester "thanked" and "liked" the post in which Probus "strongly disagreed" the sentence Polyester wanted to help with had to be about sex; though the full text speaks volumes what it is all about ... Weird
