Check out these posts on what the smells of your penis or vulva mean and remember you should only wash down there with mild, unscented soap and water.
Vagina Smells & What They Mean
Like discharge, smells can tell you a lot about your vulva, so it’s important to keep tabs on what’s going on down there.
It’s important to remember that smells change and that’s ok. Subtle changes in your vaginal fragrance are normal, as it’s quite a sensitive little being. Take P in V sex, semen has a relatively high PH so it’s super normal to notice a different kind of smell after you’ve had this kind of sex.
Sweaty Pits - The Apocrine glands (sweat glands) live in your armpits & groin area. For this reason, your penis may smell like your armpits/B.O after a long day.
Sour Beer - It's very common for vaginas to produce a sour odour. Most yoghurts & even some sour beer contain the same bacteria as a health vagina (Lactobacilli).
Bleach - An odour similar to bleach or ammonia can be down to two things, urine or BV (bacterial vaginosis). If its BV it will be accompanied with a fishy smell and a bleach smell can be due to dehydration.
A Penny - This metallic smell is often down to blood. Blood contain iron which has this kind of smell. You can often have this smell during menstruation or bleeding after sex - lube up people!
