“Having Trouble Smelling Clean”
Dear Bearded Confidant,
I consider myself to be a clean guy. I shower everday, and wash everything, including my gentials. No matter how much I wash they always smell. I don't want someone to become turned off while we are having sex. What can I do?
Don't worry about the way you smell. Every man's genitals produce an odor, no matter how often he washes, no matter if he wears underwear or not. Rather than turning off a sexual partner, the odors of your genitals will actually be attractive because sweat contains sexual hormones. It is little known that the apocrine glands in the armpits, navel, genitals, nipples, and external canal of the ear secrete a special kind of sweat that attracts sexual partners. This sweat is only released when a person is under stress or is sexually aroused. So stay clean but don't worry about how your genitals smell. They are working to improve your sex life!
