Touch: sensuous theory and multisensory media by Laura U. Marks was
actually the first one that sprung to my mind, but Marcy already
recommended it. From that book if you are just looking for excerpts
I'll highly recommend a few of my favourite chapters:
     from section II: Haptics and Erotics...
"Here's Gazing at You: Films by Ken Jacobs" and
"Love the One You're With: Straight Women, Gay Porn, and the Scene of
Erotic Looking"
and from section III: Olfactory Haptics...
"The Logic of Smell" and
"Institute Benjamenta: an Olfactory View"

a couple of other good books on the subject include:

The Skin of the Film: Intercultural Cinema, Embodiment, and the
Senses (also by Laura U. Marks)
Carnal Thoughts: Embodiment and Moving Image Culture by Vivian Sobchack
