What does a normal vagina smell like?

I'm not trying to be funny, but I think maybe I'm abnormal. No matter I do my vagina has a scent. I don't have an infection, it's not fishy, but musky I guess. Why isn't it odorless like everyone else?
I'm embarrassed to have sex because of this. What will a guy think?

Re: What does a normal vagina smell like?

HI,

I don`t think you can say what a `normal` vagina smells like , after all, what is a normal vagina?? Every woman`s is different, and I think it is normal for it to have SOME sort of smell! I have never heard someone say theirs was odourless!

I am definitely not an expert, but I think it is normal, so don`t be afraid to have sex because of it

Cutie

Musky is exactly what it is supposed to smell like A slight scent, not overpowering or anything. Everyone else isn't "odorless"..not sure where you heard that.

If you're ready for sex, then enjoy! You're normal.

Just another person here piping up with 'where did you hear it's supposed to be odorless'?

I think it might be odorless for maybe 1 minute after a shower, but that's about it. Then the natural scent that everyone has due to all the things going on with our skin/pores/orfices etc. goes into play. The vagina is filled with natural secretions which have a scent but it should not be unpleasant. The vulva, on the other hand, can get pretty rank if it isn't washed regularly, just like an armpit... It has sweat glands, smegma, urine, etc., to deal with so eventually it's not going to smell like a flower after a while. In general, if it's washed regularly, it will have an odor, but not an unpleasant one.
