My SO makes me sick...

He showers maybe once or twice a week if I'm lucky, he brushes his teeth just in the morning, and he shaves once every other week. How do I let him know I can't even think about kissing or having sex with him cuz he is disgusting without hurting his feelings???

  • i agree that you will just have to tell him. I would have him shower before bed and then have incredible sex..hopefully he will want to shower more often.

  • Huh? Is this a grown man or a little boy? Anyone knows when they stink, therefore no one needs to tell a grown man to shave and shower frequently...hummmm....that's just nastyyyyy

  • I would just tell him "hey honey you need a shower" I've done it before and he just laughed and went and took a shower. No big deal. Most men aren't as sensitive about someone telling them they stink.  Don't tell him that he makes you sick that would probably offend him but a gentle "oh man you must have worked extra hard because you need a shower quick" would probably be fine.

  • Mine knows if he wants to get frisky, he needs to shower first. I don't need a UTI or Yeast infection.

  • I see it as disrespecting you by not being in the best clean and tidy shape he could be,and you're worrying about making HIM upset?! I'd set him straight that you demand that he be showered,shaved,and brushed daily. You're not running around stanking are you,then neither should he!
