Im 17, I can retract my forskin but when im errect and pull back, it smells really musky and off putting. Is it normal to smell like this? I clean my glans and behing the glans at least twice a day, but it always carries on smelling.Would it be better to clean the penis with baby wipes (those wet cloth things), or would this not be safe?Thanks
Musky Penis Smells?
If you don't wash your dick every day, it may smell weird... but all smell like fish when exited or sexual-masturbation act... if it stills you better go to a doctor for a checking
this happened to me. exact same thing, when I retract my foreskin.It only happens to me when i'm turned on, so it may be a "scent" giving off, like the same happens with women when they are turned on.I also think if you don't wash for a couple of weeks you might get a bad smell down there, along with some rashes.
Lifes like a box of chocolates, choose which you like best.
In reply to:It only happens to me when i'm turned on, so it may be a "scent" giving off, like the same happens with women when they are turned on.That's exactly what it is. There are scent glands around the pubic area, and in combination with sweat glands that go into overdrive during arousal, they give off that musk smell. All males past puberty have this smell, especially during arousal. As long as you shower daily to prevent the smells from building up too much, you're fine. Its impossible to be completely odor-free down there, and actually, that musk smell if it is fresh is attractive to the opposite sex, just like the 'scent of a woman' is attractive to us guys. The sexual scents, called pheremones, can actually trigger arousal and attraction on a subconscious level. These pheremones and musk scent can be ampified under the foreskin since its not exposed to air to dry out, so that's why you notice it more when pulling back the foreskin. Perfectly normal. The odor glands and sweat glands in the pubic region don't become active until late in puberty, which is probably why you never noticed this scent before. It's all part of being a man, so get used to it! Hope this helps.

Beware the white text!
--consider that your disclaimer.
It smells because there is bacteria down there. You might need to wash twice a day. And you can use an antibacterial penis health creme for extra protection as well. I use one called Man1 Man Oil and it works really well... keeps things really clean and fresh. Check it out. Hope this helps.
