    OK this might be gross and embarrassing to ask but I really want an answer.

    So I'm uncut and whenever I bathe I make sure to pull back the skin and soap my penis and make sure it's clean and when I go to showed again in the evening, it'll smell. Does anyone else that's uncut smell after a day even though you washed it well in the morning? Is there any way to make it not smell as frequently (besides bathing). It really annoys me and didn't know who else to ask.

    You really need to talk to your doctor about this, as the odour could be due to a medical condition. There are probably treatments available that are less invasive than circumcision.

    Well I've recently just started to spend more time being precise with the washing while I bathe and it isn't bad, only on days when I exercise does the smell come off as noticeable but after the bath is gone. Thanks for the responses though!

    This is the "dirty little secret" that isn't revealed. In fact, in the USA, it is denied (circumcision is big business in the USA).

    Therefore, circumcision causes a tremendous loss of sensitivity.


    Your comment ( circmcision is big busness) is baseless.

    Consider occasionally the symptom the guy has above is a serious disease.
    ( penile cancer or STD)

    and yes staph infections can be deadly. Sometimes a circumcision is necessary to prevent a worse infection.

    HIV infection is easier contracted if you are uncircumcised.

    Incorrect. Are the doctors performing the procedure for free? Are the hospitals not selling circumcised foreskins?

    The OP has not provided any evidence that he has "a serious disease."



    musclmed saidand yes staph infections can be deadly. Sometimes a circumcision is necessary to prevent a worse infection.


    No more prevalent in intact men vs circumcised men.



    musclmed saidHIV infection is easier contracted if you are uncircumcised.


    Incorrect again. In Western Europe (where the vast majority of the population is intact, the HIV rate is lower than in the USA (where the vast majority of the population is circumcised).


    Are you circumcised?



    Sir since I conduct HIV research I know what i am talking about. Your simplistic view sounds like something from the Santa Monica city counsel.

    If there was no difference why is this a parameter that we measure in HIV reasearch. And yes even exclude some men from studies based on whether they are circumcised or not.
    http://www.cirp.org/library/disease/HIV/vanhowe4/

    INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF STD & AIDSWhat consistently appears throughout all of these studies is the strong correlation between genital ulcer disease and HIV infection. There is also a correlation between genital ulcer disease and the foreskin in many of the studies. However, when multivariate analysis was performed on several of the studies, the foreskin as a factor was no longer significant12,13, suggesting that the genital ulcer disease rather than the foreskin facilitated the transmission of HIV.


    Simply some men have a great deal of trouble with keeping the area clean because of unique anatomical circumstances. These create skin breakdown and ULCERS. Increasing STD transmission.
    INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF STD & AIDSThis strongly suggests that other factors associated with the foreskin, rather than the foreskin itself, are responsible for the acquisition and spead of HIV.

    I am glad you have no problems. Clearly this guy does and should get examined, and options should be on the table.

    So you go ahead and quote a pro-circumcision website.

    What is the reason, then, that the HIV rate is higher in the (circumcised) USA than in most of (uncut) Western Europe?



    I am neither for or against it. Merely it is a medical procedure with certain risks and benefits.

    If someone has chronic sores or tears trust me it can lead to cancer and other issues.

    A nuance you likely cannot appreciate unless you have to address medical problems.

    This thread is fucking hilarious! One guy asks how to clean his nasty smelling dick, and an argument over the business of circumcision ensues. icon_lol.gif

    Its really hard to give anyone's advice without being chastised about some anti-circumcision political movement.

    Getting back to the OP's question...

    I'm uncut, too. Yeah, having to deal with the hygiene is definitely a consequence (well worth it, IMO).

    A mucous membrane is a layer of mucous-producing tissue which lines every orifice. It's what makes the inside of your mouth slippery, it's what snot's mostly made of, even ear wax is a form of mucous. The stuff is crucial in that it is a natural antibiotic and catches microscopic debris, protecting the body from infection through what would otherwise be a dangerous breach in its defenses.

    The glans of the penis has a mucous membrane. If you have a foreskin, that mucous builds up. By the end of the day, there's enough there to smell it. Add a couple more days and dead skin mixing in, you've got smegma.

    So, no, there's nothing you can do about it except maintain proper hygiene. Your body's going to produce that mucous by the end of the day no matter what you do. It's a healthy, natural process, you just have to compensate.

    Personally, I try to grab a quick shower and clean things up just before sex. Overall, though, I'll take the inconvenience over the loss of sensitivity and massive lube bills any day of the week. My foreskin and I, we're pals.

    I dodged the question because it was a total thread hijack. It has nothing to do with this poor guys problem.
    The USA rate is high for other reasons. Within Africa the transmission from women to men is reduced in circumcised men.

    If for some reason he has an anatomical problem that circumcision would help why would any physician not offer that?

    You have an uphill battle to prove that circumcision has no indication . Outside of your personal thoughts about the topic.

    .

    Your body's own chemistry will be what determines the odour.

    You can always try making sure that your penis is dried properly after you shower.

    Some soaps can be harsh and encourage bacterial or fungal growth. An anti-bacterial soap is likely to be a better option.

    Use some talc powder under your foreskin after drying it - it will help keep it dry and discourage fungal or bacterial growth.

    Well... There seems to be many guys contributing that are experts and making mountains out of nothing and even more that think they can twist the question into their own use or misuse of this site...

    Some things to consider:

    1 - When you urinate, do you retract your foreskin or do you leave it as it is? Retracting foreskin allows for less waste to get 'caught' under the foreskin - plus if you take the time to ensure all the residual drips have escaped before returning the foreskin to its normal state, you'll even further reduce the amount of waste that might get caught.

    2 - If the odor is persistent and it bothers you, it would be worth checking with a doctor to ensure that nothing else is going on to cause it.

    3 - Nothing stays clean for 18 hours on its own. There's no harm in whipping it out at the sink and giving it a little wash, especially if you're planning on getting intimate with someone - if only for the peace of mind.

    4 - Yes, cut guys can have an odor and taste, too. They're not immune to it.

    5 - Circumcision should be a last, worst-case alternative. It is a pretty drastic solution to a pretty minor problem (and ultimately, that is likely what this is - natural body oils and sweat creating a harmless, if unpleasant, odor.)

    TO THE FREAKIN' "UNCUT COCKS TRANSMIT MORE HIV THAN CUT COCKS" ... Enough already with this ridiculous argument.

    Know what prevents HIV transmission?

    SAFER SEX CHOICES AND PRACTICES.

    If guys wore condoms every time they penetrated something, I have a strong suspicion that HIV rates would reduce -dramatically- REGARDLESS OF WHETHER A DUDE HAS A FORESKIN OR NOT.

    To the OP - Hope some of this helps and that you're able to sort things out for your own peace of mind.

    It is definitely true that guys who are uncut are at a higher risk of getting HIV. This has been studied and proven over and over again.

    On a related note to the original question- how do you tell someone, that you're about to get intimate with, that his uncut dick smells in order to avoid embarrassment for him and gagging for you?

    uncut or not you could clearly say that you like to shower before sex as you prefer freshly showered sex as you are not into body smells. If that doesn't work then you may have to be a bit more blunt.

    That has NOT been proven over and over again. There is one large study done in Africa (male to female transmission only) that is heavily criticized by many medical groups as being heavily flawed.

    If you want to use that study as your argument, flawed or not, there are multiple studies that show there is no difference between the rate of HIV infection with cut vs uncut. Also, there are US studies that show no difference in HIV rate among men who have sex with men.

    Your argument only applies to penile and vaginal sex.

    Most of those studies dont get any publicity and are hard to find...but they are there and are valid. There are just as many studies showing no difference in cut vs uncut in STD rates and a lot also show uncut having lower rates...but in the US, that will never make headline news, only when supporting circumcision does it make the news.

    Go to your doctor.
    I've never had any bad smells coming from mine.
