How to Cope with Natural Body Odor Here the women discuss the difference between their thoughts on body odor and those of men. Female: What is that thing about like the sex on your period where you feel grossed out by your own naturalness when often the guys like that animal part is into it. Like it s attractive that animal, natural musky thing. Where like as women, were supposed to be this prim, totally done up, made up. Like, we don’t sweat, we don’t do things, we don’t smell, we don’t bleed. Female: It’s just my vagina glistening. Female: Yeah. Female: Especially before your period I’m sure it smell even more because were getting ready for mating season. That is what it is. You know, were animals, you know. That’s why we get wet were turned on and they get hard. So it’s supposed to work. It’s lovely. Female: Why do you think you’re self conscious about it? Female: It’s just, I really never thought of it like it was a bad thing. I just always just did it like. It was just like a daily thing. I started doing it when I got my period. Then I was like oh my god I think everybody knows I’m on my period or like stuff like that. So then, it just started then and then I was just like ok, I’m just always going to just wash up and us my wipes. Female: You have been doing it that long? Female: Yeah. I mean I don’t use it like oh every time I use the restroom I have one. Yeah. Its just like, especially if I know I’m going to have sex that day or I know I am going to see him in like two hours or whatever, like I’ll make sure to clean myself up. Female: Have you ever like, your vagina smells like potpourri or— Female: No. Female: But have you been complemented on your vagina’s smell? Female: Yeah. Female: Like I never like I don’t spray the FDS spray into my vagina, like I’ll spray on my underwear and then put my underwear on. Is that bad too? Female: It’s probably better. Female; But that’s like when you’re young and you know there’s all these things that nobody tells you. That like its okay, that is a natural smell that its okay to feel like that and then especially as you are getting you period and that is such a physically painful experience that you don’t recognize or realize that you know, the image of like perfect woman and then the image of real woman, you know are conflicting. So you think that you have to do something to like, “Oh nobody else goes through this. I’m the only one and I’m gross and there’s something wrong with me.” Female: And I think we’ve all felt like that when we’re on our period that everyone can tell. You know, it was like, because you're sitting there, you’re going oh my gosh I'm cramped you feel it and you're like you know what you’re going through but no else, they don’t know, you know. Female: You know what I got really self conscious about discharge, you know if you sweat and you just have like a little bit or even if you get turned on at some point during the day and then later you get home and you got like a little bit of discharge and that smells and like oh my god everyone can probably smell it. So weird I don’t ever want a guy to see it. But then we talk to more women throughout as you grow up and I realize that its pretty normal. Female: When I first got it out, I had to ask like “What is that I’m getting this white stuff in my underwear?” I don’t know what that is. I was like really, really nervous about it, really nervous. Female: The same thing happened to me and I was like, “It’s a yeast infection.” Female: That’s the same thing with when I first moved here and it was August and it was like the dead heat like disgusting. So I was just sweating everywhere, like a lot and I would leave my apartment and be like really like what clothes can I wear? Where like I’m not sweating through all my clothes because I really felt like I’m the only person that I see who is like really--like you just feel soiled. Its like that’s the word for it. And like everything you get like gushy and everything just feels
