How to stop smelly and sweaty balls?

Sweaty and smelly balls is a problem that all men experience but no one talk much about, this post will look at this restricted topic giving you details on how to prevent sweaty and stinky testicles or swamp crotch, the importance of fresh balls, what cause smelly and sweaty balls and the best products and underwears to keep your groin area dry and fresh base on my experience and reviewers on Amazon.

 I  think the first time I realized that there was such a thing as sweaty smelly crotch was during my teenage years when a male friend of mine was cutting my hair. As he circled me I could smell this really bad odor coming from his groin area. I decided to go home take off my underwear to check myself and there it was I got a whiff of it that mothball smell. The fact is unattended testes stinks and this blog takes a look at the issue. 

Why should men pay more attention to cleaning, grooming and keeping their balls fresh?

  • Women don’t like smelly balls just ask your girl or some female cousins. Many of them tolerate your smell because they love you but deep down inside they want you to clean up your act.
  • Your friends smell you and they talk you just don’t know, because of our brain sensory adaptation which makes us unaware of our own smells after a time.
  • It bad for your health to have a smelly groin area because it’s a sign that bacteria and fungus are multiplying.
  • It just plain nasty on your behalf.
  • If you don’t keep your balls fresh and dry it can lead to terrible itch which is a result of bacteria and fungus increase this can lead to really bad rashes.
  • Girls would not go down there even if they do the won’t stay long


What cause stinky balls and groin area? 

A number of reasons lead to smelly testicles. Scientifically it’s caused by bacteria which lives in the area and not sweat. Sweat is a salty liquid product which exits our pores without an odor its job is to cool our skin. The sweat which secretes through our hair follicles has a sugar which bacteria loves. As the bacteria consume the sugar from our sweat for the energy they produce a bad odor in the form of a gas.
So here are some other causes of the smelly pubic area.

  • Wet balls (great place for fungus and bacteria to grow)
  • Hairy pubic area remember hair hold smell for a long time just blow some cigar smoke on your beard see how long it takes to get rid of the smell 
  • Tight underwear especially those not made of cotton.
  • dirty underwear
  • heavy sweating or hyperhidrosis 
  • Not bathing regularly 
  • Not scrubbing your balls

How to prevent sweaty and smelly balls? 

I remember my first attempt of trying to have dry fresh balls was to use Brut spray deodorant it felt so cool but as soon as I pulled up my underwear it burnt like my balls had visited hell. I also tried Gillette clear gel deodorant it reduced the smell but I later read that you should not rub deodorant products with Aluminum on your testicles they are easily absorbed by the skin and can cause cancer.

Follow this regimen and you are sure to solve this problem.

  • First shave and clean your pubic area, balls and the hair between your butt, yes between your butt this area holds a lot of sweat and bad odor. Read about the best trimmers for testicles.
  • Take a bath scrub your pubic area and balls with a loofah exfoliating cloth and a mildly scented soap (unscented glycerin soap).Read about: Soap with 5.5ph
    or bath wash avoids sweet-scented soaps this can lead to a bad odor
     within the hour after bathing. Scrub the dead skin on your balls is gone they contribute to your odor.
  • After bathing dry well with a towel but from my experience it doesn’t fully dry our balls so I recommend blow off with a fan or waiting for a few minutes for the air to dry it before putting on clothes.
  • Next, add a balls product to keep your scrotum dry most of them are made of talc powder.
  • Please put on a clean underwear preferably made a micro modal material, cotton and also bacteria resistant read more about them below.
  • Bath twice a least twice a day and repeat step 2 to 4.

Step 1 should be soon as you see new hair growth. 
Note depends on how musk your smell is it make take two to three baths following all the steps to keep your scrotum smelling fresh.

By Mary Jayne Board

I really like the contents of this can and how it works. The reason for the two star review is that it stopped working when the can got down 1/3 to 1/2 of the can. I tried cleaning the nozzle and the tube but nothing I tried would work.  


Underwear to keep your testicles dry and fresh

When it come to keeping your testicles dry , odor free and bacteria free you need to also look at your underwear . I have been wearing Hanes cotton underwear for many years they kept me dry for most of the pubic area except for my balls and butt which would be damp . So I decided to research under wears that’s when I found that there were underwear’s that were engineered to keep you dry and cool also made with odor resistant and bacteria resistant material. That when I discovered Adidas performance climalite trunk it’s made of 91% polyester and 9% spandex it is an underwear that’s sure to keep you dry.







There are other underwears that can keep you dry during a hot day such as Tommy John which is made of 90% micro modal this material is a light weight and is naturally made from the beech tree fiber . When you sweat this material pulls the sweat away from your skin and control body temperature  keeping your balls dry. There cheaper brand on Amazon you can do your own research .

Conclusion and tips
Maintaining fresh balls and preventing swamp crotch can be a simple task for some while some men have to work hard to keep up because of excessive sweating, the job they do and where they live.
If you think it not that bad and you don’t want to spend money you can simply follow the above regiment and use some Gold bond powder.
I found that all talcum products work but be careful when having sex to wash it off because you don’t want it entering your girl’s vagina.
If you are concern about the tidiness of your groin area you should try the non-powder products.
