    Hi everyone. It is really important to me, I hope someone knows what is going on and will tell me. I've tried to google my problem, but nothing was found...

    So I am 24 days now without porn, masturbation and sex. And recently my penis started to smell. That smell is really bad. So at first I thought that it just happened, I haven't had shower for 4 days. And this Sunday I took a shower and today, Tuesday, just in the morning, there was a bad smell again...

    This never happened to me before, when I was masturbating, etc., that's why I am concerned. I mean, that smell is really bad and strong and it goes through my jeans. Can you imagine, just one and a half days and the smell goes through jeans...

    I thought it might be because of the wet dreams, but I didn't had those. I mean, not only that I cannot remember them, but I wake up dry and nothing seems unusual.

    Please, can someone tell me what's going on?
     
  2. First, take a shower everyday not only for your general health but also for your penis. Clean it everyday. Sweat might build up causing jock itch especially when you exercise so clean it everyday. That should help and if not, go to a doctor. You might have jock itch which has been known to cause smell.

    Bottom line, clean. :)

    You might be experiencing a boost in testosterone because of NoFap. That would cause an increase in body odor. Just wash more often and use cornstarch to absorb sweat. Don't worry, there are many pleasant effects of increased testosterone; muscle growth, deeper voice, more facial and body hair!

    Nice, congratulation for testosterone boost my friend, though it may be some androgenic receptors healing process. Its a good thing, I have as well this whenever I reached a nice amount of days on nofap.

    About smell itself, come on? Just shower.

    Thanks for all the replies. You should understand, that smell in two days after showering it is not because I am dirty, especially if to think that nothing is touching penile area (I mean I'm not doing any activities, duh). So it is something unusual, it never happened before even after a week of no shower. And there are nothing else wrong in there - no itch, no burning sensation, no color changes, nothing, only smell.

    I hope it is a boost in testosterone, thanks guys.

    Easy problem. You have a case of smegma. What's smegma? That nasty whitish sticky substance that builds up around your penis. When u used to masturbate, you rubbed it off everytime with all the friction. Now it's building up. Smegma is responsible for that nasty smell. Even if you don't see it, it's still there in a thin film. Solution? Soap-wash your dickens twice a day. A bath is not really the solution. Just clean your penis. And with soap too! It should stop building up after 2 weeks or so,or even if it does, the smell won't be there. This is a rare case btw! Feel special bro :D :p

    You're not dirty, that's the smell of semen storing and your testosterone increasing. We all went through it. We might hate the smell but women love it.

    That article say that on 7th day there is a increased amount of testosterone and on day 8th this peak comes to normal.

    The real thing why people notice changes related to increased testosterone levels, in fact, is not the peak in it. Its the androgenic receptors healing process. Jerking off damages the androgens. The same amount of testosterone can be absorbed better due to higher androgenic receptivity, so with same testosterone levels you may experience confidence boost, more body hair, etc.

    Sounds interesting. I hope that the same apply to dopamine receptors. I mean they will rebuild over time and everything go back to its homeostasis.

    I also discovered a strange smell down there in the last few days. I've often got a whiff of it when I was naked. For example before or after showering, before or after peeing, when I was sleeping and lifted up the blanket (I always sleep without underwear). I couldn't smell it through my pants though. I'm not circumcised, but my foreskin is always pulled back during the day. I started doing this a long time ago, because I wanted my glans to become less sensitive and I just stuck to it, because it also feels more hygienic and I've got used to it. I can assure that in my case the smell isn't coming from smegma, or because my penis is dirty in general. It's also not related to masculine odor, because of higher testosterone. It's a familiar smell. It smells like old semen and I'm pretty sure that's exactly what it is.

    I'm also pretty sure that there are many women out there that don't get horny while sniffing a breeze of old semen when pulling down a guy's pants to put it mildly. Just think of it from a biological viewpoint of the girls subconsciousness. It means the guy will shoot a load of old semen in her, which isn't the best thing for reproduction compared to a load of fresh semen. It also means, that this guy haven't had sex in a while, which practically means, he didn't find a girl who wanted to have sex with him in a while and generally spoken in a biological viewpoint of the girl's subconsciousness besides all the morals and whatever, this means chances are high that there's something wrong with this guy, because there should be a reason that other girl's didn't want to have fun with him.

    Anyway, this chapter was lots of theory without including many other factors. Maybe the smell fades after being on NoFap for long enough, maybe the girl does already like many other things about the guy or is horny enough that the smell of old semen isn't sufficient to turn her off and otherwise it's probably manageable that the girl doesn't get a whiff before the guy's first shot.

    I'm still wondering why not many other guys have experienced the smell of old semen coming from down there after being on NoFap.

    I also sometimes smell my own semen in the early days of my reboot. It is normal, and your brain is trying to stimulate your body.
