Smell Well: The Lowdown on the Down-Low!
Obviously, one of the concerns when you are on a travel event or party or may be thinking about heading out to your first sexy adventure is whether you are up to par in every single way and that includes smelling well...in the nether regions.
No one really talks about it, but we all get a little self-conscious at times when it comes to body odor, especially with a focus on genitalia. Brushing up and preening being one thing, of course, meeting that couple and not knowing if the click is there or how things will develop, we all make sure we are washed up, but for the smell test... How do you compare?
The Scent of a Woman
For men, it's definitely more of a clear-cut situation. For the ladies, well first things first: What’s normal, and what's not?
Well, let's make one thing clear: Everyone has a smell and it's different for everyone. It's important to know that your smell depends on many factors to name a few obvious ones: the female cycle, type of underwear, and (not surprisingly) the more sex you have the stronger your scent will be, that just goes with the territory.
It's good to know, however, that men find the scent of a woman irresistible. So ladies relax, there is nothing much to worry about.
The following tips are great to help keep you smelling lovely and naturally:
- Don't go crazy on your cleaning ritual. Intimate sprays are a big no-no. Clear water is best and should you really feel you need to soap it up, use the gentlest cleaner possible.
- Many lifestylers probably have taken to the laser, wax or razor to clear unwanted hair. From many conversations on the topic it is advised to wax about a week prior to a travel event/party/date to make sure there are no bumps and you are ready to rock. Going for the razor? Aloe Vera works wonders.
- Some foods you'll definitely wish to avoid to have mysterious odors not only creeping up on you and others front and back, but seeping through your pores too are (to mention a few): asparagus, garlic, cumin, broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, beets, curry. This is why you'll see at travel events the dishes posted that contain garlic. The finesse is in the details. Your breath will be happier if you ease up on coffee, dairy, candy bars and believe it or not, sugar-free gum.
- A given in lifestyle circles, regular check-ups are paramount in coming up smelling like roses!
