    I have a question for all the other guys with foreskin. I take a shower daily and clean underneath my foreskin but when i go to JO I notice my penis has an odor and iam guessing that its due to the fact that when i wake up i have a hard on and i guess i still have wet dreams (iam 18) but i go to touch it and so i can smell my fingers and its real strong smell, not that i dont like it, but it gets old to smell it everyday so i was wondering if any of you know something i can do to it to stop the smell without having to get it cut.:confused: :confused: :confused:

    hi catredtonic,

    make sure you clean not only your glans, but pull straight your foreskin back and clean it too as the smegma can stay hidden in the wrinkles of of your prepuce. you realize you are clean when both intenal face of the prepuce and your glans are clean when you pass a finger on it and there is no smell left.

    see ya'

    Vinnyc is right. You're not washing it thoroughly enough. Sometimes when I use the bathroom after our 15yo son there's a strong smell left behind by him. It isn't a fart or shit or armpit smell, it's the small of stale cock left behind after he's jacked off. I know he does his jacking off in there because I had to ask him to make a better job of catching it in a tissue after finding spunk on the wall and radiator. :redface: I also have a pretty good idea that he doesn't wash under his foreskin too well because when he was young enough that we were still supervising his washing, he was very reluctant to pull his foreskin back and touch the glans as it was so sensetive. My wife and I didn't want to make a fuss about this. We simply suggested that he should try to do it for hygene reasons, and left him to his own devices hoping that he'd get the hang of it in his own time. Needless to say, by the time he was 10 or so we'd stopped being in the bathroom with him. But, however long he spends lounging in the bath, he never seems to make the water very soapy. We've had to plead with him to remember to lather up his armpits because he was still smelly after bathing. He's got the hang of that, but I suspect that he still isn't washing properly under his foreskin. I have been thinking about having a father/son chat about it with him, but it's a matter of choosing a good moment. Not easy.

    Under the foreskin is a lovely warm dark moist environment in which bacteria are very happy. All they need is some food in the form of dead skin cells and away they go breeding like fury. What's happenning is that you are not removing all traces of the greasey film of dead skin cells (smegma) and the remaining bacteria just breed again. Within an hour of washing it's smelly again. If you wash it thoroughly and frequently enough the bacteria population will not get a chance to win the battle.

    I started a thread about it a while back:

    http://www.lpsg.org/the-healthy-penis/30189-evil-stench-from-dried-spunk-3.html

    I noticed that people don't like to admit that they get that bad smell, but the thread got many views so I'm sure that it a common problem.

    The only solution is to wash your glans as quickly as possible after ejaculating. Otherwise washing several times afterwards is the only way I know of reducing the smell, for some reason soap or anything else isn't good enough to eliminate that smell in one go.

    Another thing that may be relevant - being 18 you're going through an extremely horny period and probably getting turned on at various points during the day, from different stimulii. You may well be pre-cumming a lot, some guys do (I'm one). Your underwear will soak up any "spillage" but there will obviously be some retained under the foreskin. Just make sure that when you go for a pee you pull back your foreskin and dry under it when you've finished and you may also find that you need to give your cock a wash at a convenient point once or twice during the day, especially when it's been hot and you've been getting turned on.

    your basic daily wash should do you. no need to overkill or overfret. if you are concerned for your partner, pop out and have a wash before you "get it on". other than that its nature dude enjoy being real.

    I used to get that. I realized it was because I was being pretty uncleanly with my masturbating. I would not really clean my dick off well so some of the semen would stay on my dick (under the foreskin) and have a bad odor, even if I washed it off really well in the shower the next day. I finally decided to change my habits and now it's clean and doesn't smell like anything. Also some other factor that could play a role is how hard or soft your water is. I moved and my water became much harder and could really rip away all the dirt off my body, when I shower in softer water now, it's not really like that anymore. Basically just have clean masturbating habits and if you think you're still getting wet dreams, masturbate before you go to bed and make sure you wipe your dick clean before going to sleep. Hope that helps

    Not only do you need to be washing thoroughly, but make sure it's with antibacterial soap.

    the natural smell from a healthy man is very pleasent- including under foreskin, balls, belly button, armpits or the back of his ears- personally I hate this obsession with getting rid of natural sexy smells and replacing them with artificial chemicals.

    A porn star type model with a huge cock but stinking of aftershave and scented soaps is nowhere near as sexy as an average looking, clean but natural smelling guy

    I shower twice a day. You need to wash your package on a regular basis. There will be no odor if you do. Use a gentle deodorant soap and you will be fine. I don't use antibacterial soap because it doesn't rinse off your hands and it causes a film on my contacts. Or so my eye doctor says. One must remember that if their penis is not clean enough to put in someones mouth or vaginal areas are not clean enough to a tounge in then neither is clean enough for penetration.

    I agree with Tatooed MamaMeg.

    Antibacterial Soap is a must! I lather up my cock, especially under the skin... and give it a good jerking, so I know I'm hitting everything.

    Then, I pull the skin over the head (lathered) and I leave it alone for a minute while I lather other body parts... Then, rinse it just before you're ready to leave the shower.

    Works every time.

    ALSO: Do you pull the skin back when you pee? I had two brothers who did the "spray thing" without pulling it back... Not only does it leave a mess in the bathroom, urine stays under the skin and makes a very fowl smell.

    Everybody who is uncut has a musky smell (which I think is heaven) 8-10 hours after their last shower... but, it should not be an overpowering nasty stench.
