Guys, how bad is it when you notice during getting intimate that a girl forgot to put on deodorant?

It happened to me once and I still think about whether he didn't enjoy it as he would have otherwise.

  • I remember a time when this occurred.

    It was a very bad situation. I could barely hide my gagging.

    I handled it the best way I knew how.

    I suggested that we both shower, not being specific as to a reason for doing so. She wanted to know why. After much evasion, she dragged the truth out of me, to her chagrin. Talk about the waterworks being turned on. Good grief.

    My best, obviously, wasn't good enough.

    30+ years later, the original event is still viewed by my wife as being absolutely, completely, 100%, my fault.

    It's still a bad situation.

    I keep my mouth shut.

  • So depends on why the "stink" is there. I've noticed three very distinct perspiration profiles on people. 1) I've been wrapped in saran wrap all day and I'm sweating without evaporative cooling going on. 2) post workout sweat (which always is way hotter and on a pretty big percentage of women smells good because of the attracting hormones contained therein) and 3) fear sweat, like after a car wreck or getting shot at or what have you. 3 is a wild card, sometimes that doesn't smell bad. 1 always does, 2 never does, 3 is a coin toss?

  • With my girlfriend I do not mind. I like her natural smell.

    I believe it could be different with people who are into hookups. If you meet only for sex then hygiene is an important concern and a neutral industrial smell can be reassuring.

  • If I am about to slide the probe into her manhole, I seriously doubt that I will notice or care about a little odor from her armpits. Besides, it's probably masked by the smell of sex!

  • If she showers regularly, no problem. A nice earthy smell is natural and nice.

  • i would wait to tell her after and pretend no odor.

  • Once again Barbie Doll expectations.

    • I do talk to myself frequently, but to reply to myself? Gee I hope I'll understand. we live in an all too artificial world, especially Americans. We have forgotten what life at the grass roots level is. We think we are in control of everything and think we should control everything. So it is with personal hygiene. I have to admit growing up in the South, I have witnessed some pretty malodorous situation with those who have not showered in days, or those who have had to spend their day working in the sun , sweating to lower their body heat. I have been in social situations where no one had access to anything but shower and soap. Without deodorant we break through and start to sweat. The protein in sweat turns to ammonia and permeates the air around you. Can you imagine a barn dance or even church 100 years ago. So I guess the answer depends on your expectations and how interested you are in proceeds of the evening

  • Body odors can attract uncoinsiously. It can also repel so thats 50/50. But nevertheless you shouldn't be ashamed for it when you forget is every now and then. If that is a problem for someone then get rid of them asap. You are human and people can't judge you for forgetting to spray some deo sometimes.

    Ofcourse this a different if you never shower and smell every day like some dirty people do. But thats a different story

  • y'all know lemon, rub under arms and leave it for at least 3-5 min, more time the better. Will temporary remove odor. This comes back within months. Re do and you are set for other months.

    This recipe was given from my mother 😂.

  • Never bad to me. Even if she doesn't, it's pretty bland, maybe a bit tangy.
    Perv alert. I actually like the fragrance. it is a preview of Going South and whiffing it helps with arousal.

    • Even when they are like this. Some girls prefer Au Naturel.

  • Once the launch sequence has been activated there isn't much that would stop the evenings fun.
    After you are done when you get some blood back into your brain then you will have time to contemplate things a bit better.
    I think you may notice that beforehand if the really have bad BO, so then it might make a difference, or just suggest showering together before hand as part of foreplay and then you will both be squeaky clean.

  • Not a problem as long as she recently showered or is still clean. I think I'd prefer natural scent to perfume anyway.
