The Various Smells of Pussy...
When I entered the room, I noticed a particular smell, one that I wasn’t a fan of.

Last weekend, I ventured to a sex club to check out a new party and see the new scene. When I entered, there were tons of people there, mostly socializing and sizing up the scene. I found my bestie in another room watching a few couples be exhibitionists and turn people on with their sexual antics. However, when I entered the room, I noticed a particular smell, one that I wasn’t a fan of. To be brutally honest, it was the smell of rank pussy.

I usually love the smell of pussy

Now, I know that there are various smells of pussy; and believe me, I can tell the difference between a woman who was out all day versus a woman who has BV. I can even recognize the odors of “exotic dancer pussy” which is a pleasant pussy odor coinciding with some type of lotion or spray from Bath & Body Works.

For me, I love the smell of a nice, healthy pussy and when I was in this space, I immediately did not smell this. Granted, even though I was in a sex club, I figured that the smell of healthy pussy would fill the room, but that totally wasn’t the case. Even when I got up close to this woman and man having sex (with their clothes on!), I could smell her pussy about 5 feet away and it was not a pleasant smell at all. I actually had to get up and discuss this with my best friend.

Smells can be a big turn on (or turn off)

As a natural unicorn, I’m drawn to happy couples full of love, but completely turned off by abrasive smells. This is a primary reason why I can’t date cigarette smokers -- the smell is disgusting and a complete turn-off to me. The smoke affects everything from their clothes to their breath to their hair to just about anything the smoke touches.

The same is true about pussy and how it can shape if you're turned on or off. Depending on what you eat, your hygiene, who you’re having sex with, and how you’re treating your vagina it can all really affect the smell. Abstaining from sex for a moment, watching what you eat and carefully thinking about your hygiene can help you see what the original scent of your vagina is. That way, you will be able to recognize when your scent is off and make the necessary changes to your environment.

The fact is: No one likes a rank pussy. No one. So, if you have a pussy or know someone who does and it smells off, it doesn’t do them any good to ignore it. Tell them about their pussy or correct the smell of your pussy as soon as possible. So did I tell that woman that her pussy was rank? No, I didn’t. But I hope she got the hint after I got up and walked away…
