smell of uncut penis

Hey I think my penis may have BO or something I have heard about this being common for uncut guys and I need some help. Do I just wash it with water, use soap or anything else? Also after I take a **** won't it end up smelling bad cause sometimes a little more comes out after I am done how do I fix this. Sometimes when I feel under the foreskin there is a slimy like substance but its not precum I don't know what it is. Basically I just need to know the best way to not have a bad smell down there. Thanks!

Re: smell of uncut penis

Read the section on "Smegma Build Up" in my stretching post
http://www.healthboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=178155
To copy and paste it highlight the address and press "Ctrl" and "c". Then delete the address in the web browser's Address window and with the cursor still in that window press "Ctrl" and "v". Then press the "Enter" key.
Thatís on a PC. There must be similar shortcuts on a Mac but I donít know them.
Soap can actually cause an inmbalance in the natural flora and cause bad smells sometimes.
Cheers,
Geoff

Soap and water works wonders. I used to be uncut (I'm 18 by the way) but got circumcised about a year ago. If you can pull the foreskin all the way back over the head of your penis, when you shower just wash your penis with soap and water, especially around the head. Avoid using the anti-bacterial soaps, like Dial, since they tend to be stronger and use a milder soap instead.

I used to pull the foreskin back before taking a whiz just because otherwise I always had to deal with the "spray factor" for lack of a better term. Then I'd just shake the rest off. If you do that and use a mild soap to wash your penis when showering, you should be okay in the penis hygiene department.

What you're referring to underneath your foreskin is smegma which, as I understand it, is just a natural secretion of the sebaceous glands and is something that occurs in both women and in uncircumcised men. (At least, I haven't noticed any smegma on my penis since getting circumcised.) I've never noticed smegma on a girl, and I've looked for it too, though every girl I've ever had sex with was turned off by the smegma on my penis, despite the fact that there was never very much smegma there to be turned off by. Mine used to accumulate right on the underside of the head and I'd wash it off every day, sometimes more than once a day, since I'm physically active and always take two, and sometimes three, showers daily. I'd just pull the foreskin back and wash with soap and water and if I noticed any smegma down there, I'd be sure to wash it off.

Pretty basic stuff, actually. Nothing worse than having a dialog with your girlfriend about suffering from stinky penis syndrome.

Hope this helps.

Re: smell of uncut penis

An clean uncut penis has no more smell than a clean cut one.

Both cut and uncut smell if not washed!

Wash daily with soap and water, rinse well.

Skin back before urinating.

The only smegma I ever saw was when quite young... when I first discovered I could skin it back.

Ahhh..you would be wrong with that assessment. A penis with extra foreskin wrapped around it will trap urine and other bacterias and definetly be more susceptable to smell more.

Hmmm... No, I'm just quoting my personal experience. Like I said, there is no urine under the foreskin if it's retracted before urinating.
A smelly penis is an unclean penis... circumcised or uncircumcised.

Thats smegma... make sure to pull it back when urinating, retract and wash it everyday while showering... if its still a problem, guess you'll have to wash more often.

Re: smell of uncut penis

Just pull your foreskin behind and rinse your penis everytime after you pee. Its that simple! Wash it with soap every day when you take bath.
