Why do guys think girls need to wash their vagina's better if it has a smell?

Seriously you need to learn about vagina's better if you think like that! Soap will NOT fix the problem! it will only make things worse.

If a girl uses soap to clean her vagina it will more then likely give her an infection. The vagina is actually a very clean body part, it has 1000's of good bacteria in it which keeps it clean and healthy naturally. If you use soap or perfumes it will just kill the good bacteria, and you'll either get a yeast infection or Bacterial Vaginosis. I'm sick of guys saying you need to clean your vagina with soap if it smells and to prepare for oral. Because you should NEVER do that. Warm water is the only thing you should clean with down there, the good bacteria will do the rest.


Most Helpful Guy

  • I agree completely. I would never make a girl feel bad about her genitals.

    To be fair though, most women think the same thing about a guy's foreskin. It's not any more "dirty" than the vagina is. And just like the vagina, it too keeps itself clean and should not be washed with soap.

  • How about a guy's penis? Wash it or not?

  • Haha! All I can say is I have never thought to tell a girl to shove a bar of soap up her vagina! That's kinda gross! Thanks for the info though. :) I must have skipped some sex ed class in high school. Just tell them to suck it up! (Literally!) There is nothing wrong with the way they smell.

  • i don't have this problem.

  • I already knew that, as I know everything.

  • they say you diet contributes to how you taste . I eat ORANGES a lot and a lot of guys say I taste like oranges I don't know if it contributes to smell or taste or anything . and putting soap on there to clean your vaginas will just give you infections so let nature do what its suppose to do.

  • a lot of them don't know any better. all they know is that her vagina stinks and they don't want their face down there all up in it when it smells like that so they suggest she does something about it

  • Girls aren't suppose to wash they're vagina's out anyway. We have a natural cleanse which can cause us to smell a tad bit funky. Ways to control the unpleasing odor are like the wipes you can buy just for it. Sometimes the smell is due to diet, menstrual cycle (right before and after) or just body cleanse. Guys balls tend to smell horrible so they should just hush.
