Has anyone experienced bad smell from their arm-pit area after masturbation?

asked Jul 31, 2017 in Questions by deepu1996 (285 points)
edited Aug 1, 2017 by longhands1

Hi everyone,

This is deepu. I am 23 years years old. After masturbation, I experience a kind of bad smell from my armpit area.

I regularly shave my arm-pit hair. But only after masturbation, I am experiencing this. Even the people around me are also not comfortable with this situation. I regularly take bath.

What steps can be taken to avoid this smell from armpit area ? Please help me.

Hello deepu

The bad smell is nothing to do with your masturbation. Don't think that only after masturbation it causes your armpits to smell bad.

It's actually when you masturbate you do some kind of exercise on your hand and due to that it causes sweat at your armpit area. The smell which you are referring to is smell of sweat.
So don't be in misunderstanding that your masturbation is causing that smell.

Do you apply Diodrant on your armpit after bath ?
There are some very good Deo's available in market whose effect last long.
Try that and check the results.

If still problem remains then consult Dermatologist.

I hope I have cleared your doubt.

Thanks raj for your suggestion.  I don't apply deo after bath. I apply only when I go out. Sure I will try out what you have suggested.

Try to use good quality deo. Some deos are not that much effective.Their smell fade out within 2-3 hours.

I offer three simple solutions, however you are requested to promise me to adopt atleast one:

The smell is associated with Mooladhara Chakra. If you practice the following kriyas it not only improve your smell, it will offer you lot of benefits. How to practice it- just google.
2.Nasikagra Drishti or Nose Tip Gazing

There is no relation between masturbation and smell of arm pits.Bad smell can be removed by bathing with soap.Deodorant may be sprayed time to time.You are shaving your armpit regularly,but problem still persists.You may have to consult a Dermatologist.

Thanks for replying motilal.  Yes. I take bath two times a day with good soap. I do not experience any sweat smell before masturbation. The problem arises only after masturbating.

There is no scientific reason attached to your doubt. There is no connection between masturbation and the smell from under your armpits. I am not saying that you are imagining things. But what is possible is that you do not wash properly after masturbation.

You must be aware that semen has a distinctive smell and people around you can recognize that smell which is musty and stale.

Are you under any stress? Anxiety can contribute to body odour. The body begins to sweat and this is discharged through the sweat glands. This leads to underarm perspiration. 

Have you tried changing your diet? Eat lots of fibre based foods like salad, brown bread and vegetables. Carrot juice which is not sweetened, beetroot soup and drumstick leaves soup is also helpful. Are you drinking sufficient water? Water helps to purge the system of toxins  

Regular masturbation increases the DHT (dihydrotestosterone) levels in the body which may lead to body odour.

Sweat contains hormones. The hormones the body produces differ according to what the body is doing and the different hormones produce different scents. Physical activity like exercise or physical work produces certain hormones. Sexual activity produces others. Fear and stress are the states that are usually noted as producing the 'stinkiest' sweat.

Thanks for your kind words. In the past two weeks, I have been regularly doing masturbation. So this could be one of the reason for my body odour. Yes iam drinking more water. I should reduce this habit of masturbation and I will follow the diet.

Masturbation has nothing to do with bad smell from armpits as it does not give you bad smell because the sweat causes the bad smell and not the masturbation. You can use body spray to avoid the bad smell from there.
