  • You shouldn't douche ever. It messes with your vaginal flora and makes you much more likely to get a yeast or bacterial infection.

    Semen doesn't make you stinky. It does have a somewhat pungent smell to it, but your body flushes it out very quickly. You won't hardly even notice unless you're sniffing your underwear lol.

  • No. And a man's cum won't make you stinky unless you already have a bacterial infection, the combo will give off an odor. Ask your doc about this.
