Why does shit stink?

The distinctive odour of shit comesfrom the products of bacterial action. Bacteria produce smelly, sulfur-rich organic compounds such as indole, skatole, and mercaptans, and the inorganic gas hydrogen sulfide. These are the same compounds that give farts their odor.

The scatole and mercaptan chemical components in shit are deliberately factored into the digestive process of most animal species. They don't emulate the smell of rot or putrefaction exactly, but they are often a fairly good proxy for it - especially once the shit has cooled. The chemical signals they send out are an assertive attempt to tell us to keep our distance. This is probably for the principle reason that shit is not, for most species, a subsitute for nourishment. It's effectively 'spent' material that contains - amongst other things - millions of dead or dying bacteria. It c a n also contain (albeit relatively rarely) harmful pathogens which can make you sick if you come into contact with them.

However, very generally speaking, the intensity of the 'warning signals' in the smell are not in proportion to the actual risks of making contact with shit. This is something that pigs know all to well. Just as the act of shitting itself is frequently and pleasurably auto-erotic for most people, the smell of shit for pigs can be incorporated, to varying degrees, into their sexual consciousness to the extent that it the smell becomes erotic in itself.
