Six Causes of Male Organ Smell and How to Freshen Things Up

When things get hot and heavy, the last thing any man wants is his male organ smell to overtake the mood. Not only can it be embarrassing and communicate the message that he doesn’t pay attention to personal grooming; it can also be a symptom of a health issue. There are a number of not-so-nice infections that can cause serious trouble for a man, and his partners, if left undiagnosed and untreated. Here are six potential causes of manhood odor, and also a few ways to freshen things up down there.

1.Poor Grooming – Not showering each day, neglecting to take showers after workouts, and just taking lazy, less-than-thorough showers can result in a disagreeable male organ smell. Poor grooming leads to a buildup of oil, dirt, and sweat which then leads to irritation, infection, and funky odors. To make matters worse, men who are uncut can experience discomfort and irritation on top of the funk if they don’t properly clean the smegma from below their sheath.

2.Smegma – Smegma is so unforgivably odoriferous that it gets its own CatID. A nasty mix of dead skin cells, sebum, and moisture, smegma can make a visitor go from yes to NO in seconds. It hides in the folds of the sheath and is a common concern for uncut men. It commonly looks like white gunk on the head. Now, in normal amounts, it’s a natural lubricant for penetration. Whenever a bunch builds up though, it invades the surrounding air with a dead-fish smell.

3.Balanitis – When the head of the organ is inflamed in addition to wafting an offending odor, it may be balanitis. It can rear its ugly head (pun intended) as a result of anything from poor hygiene to psoriasis to unprotected intimacy. Other symptoms include redness, fluid buildup, swelling, and a burning sensation when urinating.

4.Yeast infection –Yeast naturally occurs in the body, but when there’s a change in body chemistry or environment, yeast can grow wildly and cause big problems. This can lead to a disagreeable smell, inflamed skin, and a lumpy white discharge. Seek medical attention immediately for relief.

5.Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) –UTIs happen when a part of the urinary tract is infected by a bacteria or virus. If a man experiences a burning sensation when urinating, cloudy or pink urine, and a persistent urge to urinate in addition to a weird male organ smell, he may have a UTI and should see his physician immediately.

6.Partner Transmitted Infections – There are several infections obtained from intimate contact that are associated with a foul male organ smell, as well as other symptoms such as pain and swelling, irregular discharge, and a burning sensation when urinating. These symptoms require immediate medical care.

Freshen Up
Above all things, keep the body and especially the private area clean. Regularly clean with warm water and a gentle cleanser such as baby wash or shampoo. Avoid any harsh cleansers or soaps that can cause irritation or inflammation. Also, be sure to use protection to avoid contracting infections and urinate after intimacy to release any bacteria or excess bodily fluids. If a foul male organ smell continues, see a doctor for tests.

In addition to daily cleansing, use a specially formulated male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) on the member for optimal health and freshness. Nutrient cremes like these which are expressly for the manhood should contain natural moisturizers, such as Shea butter and vitamin E. Also, use a moisturizer with vitamin A that acts as a natural antibacterial agent attacking disagreeable manhood odors caused by bacteria that thrive in the warm, dark private area.
