Detecting one’s own body odor is relatively easy: a quick sniff under the pits is a pretty good barometer if a guy is likely to be aromatically offensive. But determining the level of male organ odor is more difficult. Only expert contortionists are able to get their nose close enough to their manhood to get a good whiff. But this male organ health issue can be noticed much more easily by others, especially if they are people who frequent a man’s bedroom (or other location of sensual congress). For that reason, knowing the causes of male organ odor is important so that a guy can take steps to prevent and/or combat it. |
The easy answer to what causes male organ odor is, of course, sweat - or bacteria, if a person wants to be even more specific. This answer is true and factual, but it doesn’t help answer the question of what causes that sweatiness/bacteria infestation.
Here are several common causes of sweating and/or bacteria that can frequently result in a rank male organ odor that can turn off even the most interested partner.
- Wearing underwear that’s too snug. Sure, a nice tight pair of underwear can show off a guy’s assets in an intensely sensual way. But while contours are getting noticed, the confining tightness generates extra amounts of heat, which in turn activates the sweat glands. Wearing looser-fitting boxers can help here, as can "airing out" the basement by sleeping bare regularly. But if those tight briefs or boxer briefs really show a guy off, he might try wearing boxers on his date and slipping into a pair of tight ones in the bathroom after he and his partner get home.
- Stress. Stress is bad, as we all have come to learn, and it’s bad for the member as well. When stress levels are high, a form of sweat that’s rich in proteins and fats is produced - and that’s something the bacteria go mad for. If a guy’s stress levels zoom up too high - and especially if they stay high - male organ odor is bound to result. Finding ways to reduce stress, especially before a date, are encouraged. Meditation and yoga are often recommended as enjoyable ways of de-stressing.
- Too much alcohol. There are many reasons to keep alcohol intake to moderate levels. One is because imbibing too much for the liver to process means that the alcohol gets exuded through the sweat glands - and it smells awful.
- Diabetes is not managed adequately. People with diabetes who are not able to manage it adequately produce too many ketones, which affects both the aroma of urine and sweat. The manhood is not happy about either change.
- Diet. Sweat to some degree takes on the characteristics of what a man consumes. Many foods - including red meat, broccoli, asparagus, garlic, and curry - can affect the odor level of sweat. Every person’s body metabolism is different, but if a guy has persistent male organ odor, experimenting with changes in diet may have an impact.
- Medication. Some medications, including antidepressants and antipsychotics, may lead to increased sweating from some individuals. If a bioequivalent alternative which works equally as well is available, switching may help reduce male organ odor. Otherwise, washing the member just before a date or encounter may be the best option.
Whatever the causes of sweat that result in male organ odor, regular use of a superior male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) may be able to help reduce persistent male organ odor. This is especially true if the selected crème includes vitamin A. Also known as retinol, vitamin A is a natural antibacterial agent and works to combat unpleasant manhood odors caused by harmless bacteria. Hopefully, the chosen crème will also include alpha lipoic acid, a potent antioxidant that helps prevent early on aging and thinning of the male organ skin.
