Smelly balls?

  • Tell the guy to use lotion. You have a different kind of sweat gland in places like your arm pits and crotch area called apocrine glands ( link ) that release a worse funk than normal. Unless you are exercising the only reason why you sweat in that area so much (and have hair) is to reduce friction, so if you put lotion on that area it reduces the need for your body to have to produce sweat as a natural lube...that and I also keep the hair trimmed since hair holds in smells.

    • Haha I just read the link... apocrinie glands realease a worse "funk" as you say.. and the link says that those glands are also around the nipples?! hahaha .... wow, I didn't realize there was anything worse than smelly balls, but smelly nipples takes it!! =P

    • Show All
    • I have a slight problem with that link. And there's no way I can say this without sounding racist, which I don't intend it to but... The guys that I've found myself being really offended by their smell have been sub-continent (india / pakistan)men. I've always thought it was their diet. But if they have the least apocrine gladns shouldn't they... well.. not smell?

      Again, please don't take it racistly. I'm not saying it's ALL. I still just think it's the diet.

    • They mean Asian-Asian, not subcontinent Indian-Asian people

  • Lots of sweat glands there. The testicles to make sperm need to be a degree or 2 below normal body temperature. That's why they "hang" outside the body. (In cold weather they retract).

    So to keep cool they hang, and there's lots of sweat glands. Given the underwear and pants we have on, that sweat often takes a bit to evaportate, making a lovely breeding ground for bacteria, which leads to foul odor.

    How to fix it:

    * Shower 2 times a day

    * Spray it with antiperspirant

    * Keep cool

    * If he's REALLY stinky, get him to wash his balls when he goes to the toilet

    * Not sure if this would work, but maybe shove a block of ice between his legs? :-D

    • Lol ill keep that in mind if my next boyfriends balls stink!! lol my ex would put cologne on his balls, is that safe? lol. and also just wanted to say that I really have sympathy 4 you guyz. I can't imagine how annoying that must b to have those sweaty, smelly, stiicky things b/t ur legs all day!

    • There's a difference between cologne and antiperspirant. Cologne 'smells' nice, and that's it. Antiperspirant often smells nice too, but much more importantly has (I think) aluminum in it to stop you sweating, hence the name.

      It shouldn't be painful. I've even seen "all over body antiperspirant" now which is sort of code for "spray this on your balls."

    • Hahaha didin't know they came out with that!

  • "Deodorant for balls." You sound like a dirty Jerry Seinfeld.

  • There is no deodorant for balls :D well this occurs this a lot. Its normal since testicles stays under boxer and trouser for approximately 6-7 hours without any fresh air suppliement.

  • well one time in jail I was reading about stds and what every one said already can be true bu so can this he can have std
