How Important Is Male Hygiene For Sex Appeal?
What is sex appeal?
Is it something that involves a strategy, like picking the right outfit? Is it something that's inherent in certain people, like owning a style and swagger that exudes confidence? Is it simply about having astonishing good looks?
Really, it can be a combination of any of these things or none of the above. You see, if you stink, nobody's going to care how hot you are or what name brand's covering your body, and the only reason people's heads are going to turn when you walk in a room is so they can see where the stench is coming from.
In case you're not following, male hygiene tops the list of elements that are important for sex appeal. The question is—how does hygiene impact your potential to attract a mate (and, of course, how do you avoid becoming the stinky guy in the group)?
Where Does Man-Smell Come From?
Think about it—your body is kept beneath layers of clothing for hours on end. Even if you don't hit the gym, the confined space where your crotch lives is bound to produce sweat when your sensitive skin doesn't get a chance to come up for air. Men who work in extreme temperatures or perform manual labor are more likely to produce pools of sweat beneath the belt, but in actuality, we're all susceptible to crotch stench if we're not careful.
As NPR explains, " Body odor is created when the bacteria on our skin metabolize the compounds that come out of our sweat glands." George Preti, an adjunct professor in the dermatology department at the University of Pennsylvania and a member of the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia, explained to NPR, "The sweat doesn't come out smelly...It must be metabolized by the bacteria that live on the surface of the skin."
In other words, it's not necessarily your sweat that's making you stink; it's your body's bacteria that's biting you in the ass when you're trying to increase your sex appeal.
Hygiene's Impact on Intimacy
The petri dish between your legs can really put your penis on blast when it's time to get intimate. Say you get past the stage of first impressions, or maybe you have a steady partner at home. Once the clothes come off, any smell you may have been able to conceal beneath your briefs is going to come out in full force. When it comes to your groin area, bacteria and sweat like to stick to pubic hair. If you don't clean your crop with a product like Manscaped's Crop Cleanser, which is uniquely formulated to take care of unwanted odors, you're brewing some funk that's definitely going to get a reaction when the drawers come off.
Maybe you don't mind if you're on the prowl for a one-time encounter, although, if you ever want to be able to show your face in the bar where you first met your night's mate, you really should mind.
On the other hand, if your crotch is constantly producing a bad odor and you have a steady human at home, don't be surprised if they suddenly start to have more, "Honey, I have a headache" nights than they used to before your odor got the best of you.
The key is keeping it clean. Your balls may not be able to breathe during the day, but if you clean them regularly, the bacteria that hangs out on that sensitive skill will get washed away. When the sweat doesn't have a bacterial playground around your private parts, you're less likely to produce a turn-her-off odor. Opt for products that are specifically formulated for your nether region to keep your body from becoming unbalanced.
After a rumble with a good anti-bacterial body wash, be sure to do right by your lower region with a solid application of ball deodorant. Remember, deodorant isn't just for your armpits; it should be applied anywhere you'll sexual attraction could suffer if sweat turns into stink, and that certainly includes the place where your man parts collide. Manscaped's Crop Preserver is the perfect solution for any man who wants an anti-chafing, oil-free anti-bacterial barrier he can trust. Thanks to its advanced quick-absorbing talcum-like gel formulation, you'll have the best defense possible for preventing uncomfortable (and unclean) situations.
Hygiene's Role in Heterosexual Attraction
If you're a guy who leans toward the ladies, hygiene may play an even more important role in finding a mate, given women's heightened olfactory senses. Pamela Dalton, PhD at the Monell Chemical Senses Center's research shows that women who are of reproductive age are more sensitive to smells, meaning if your hygiene's out of balance, your ideal gal's nose may pick up on it quicker than you realize—about 1,000 times quicker than you in some cases.
Women also carry the place where they process smells and emotions in the same part of their brain. If you're doing hygiene right, you could instantly ignite excitement. If you're not keeping it clean down there, however, you may supercharge a sex appeal failure from which you cannot recover.
