Ladies, it’s time to let you in on a little secret: Although we don’t ever want to admit it, we don’t always give as much attention to our male organ care as we really should. And that may account for the distinct manhood odor you sometimes encounter wafting up from us when we remove our trousers. Other than wincing as if you have just encountered a freshly-killed skunk, what can a woman do when confronted with manhood odor? The following guide may prove helpful in that regard. |
Why does it smell?
The first thing to know is why manhood odor is such an issue. The easy answer is that the guy whose member is sending out a rank aroma simply doesn’t pay proper attention to hygiene. While that certainly can be the major contributing factor, it’s not necessarily the real reason.
Even a man who washes regularly may attract manhood odor simply because of how the manhood is stored. Unless a guy is a nudist or goes commando (that is, without underwear) on a regular basis, the member tends to spend an inordinate amount of time beneath two layers of clothing. And those layers aren’t usually designed for flow-through ventilation. Trousers, especially in winter, are made of fairly heavy material. Cotton underwear is not so heavy, but blended or nylon-based underwear tend to be hot. And if the underwear is tight, it increases the heat factor. Not only that, men who don’t manscape have a heavy bush of hair that adds further insulation.
All this makes the male organ into a sweat factory, and that sweat brings with it an abundance of odor-causing bacteria.
Diet also plays a role. Sweat scent changes depending upon a man’s diet. In general, those who eat lots of red meat have a stronger, more pungent odor than those who like to graze on salads. But it’s not a simple meat eater vs. vegetarian situation; for example, many vegetables (such as asparagus and broccoli) tend to produce very distinctive and not necessarily pleasant odors when released through sweat pores.
And yes, hygiene
Of course, hygiene is also a big component here. Guys who don’t wash regularly will have a tendency to smell more strongly. This is especially true of men who do not wash after sensual activity (whether by themselves or with a partner). And a guy who really loves wearing his favorite jeans five days in a row without washing is just sending out an open invitation for manhood odor to come on in.
So what should a woman do when her partner (or potential partner) presents with a consistent manhood odor issue?
First, let him know about it. This can take the form of being direct - "Either the stank from that manhood goes or I go" - or more subtle - "After I finish washing up, you can go in and clean your guy, then I’ll meet you in bed." But if the subtle route doesn’t work, be direct and blunt. You have a right to expect better and he may be totally unaware of the problem.
Second, let him know of any progress. If regular washing isn’t doing the trick, let him know. He may need to switch laundry detergents or up the number of times he washes per day.
Third, offer to help on occasion. It will be much more fun for a man if his partner joins in washing, soaping, rinsing and drying his member.
Another important component of any guide to manhood odor: Be sure to regularly apply a top notch male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) with vitamin A. That vitamin’s antibacterial properties are invaluable at fighting the bacteria behind manhood odor. It also helps if the crème contains alpha lipoic acid, an antioxidant that battles oxidative stress which can weaken manhood skin and make it harder to resists odors.
