( nsfw ) Do you think a womans private parts smell like fish gone off?

Asked by Sandydog (1263 points ) February 14th, 2010 from iPhone

Dont mean to be crude, but why is this?
Maybe it doesnt to you? And of course no offence meant to anyone.

I love the way pussy smells. I feel sorry for any man who doesn’t.

Sandydog's avatar

It was my wife who said this to me and put the question in my mind !!

janbb's avatar

“No offense” but your parts smell like fish gone off???

CyanoticWasp's avatar

Gone off? No, not unless it hasn’t been cleaned recently. I can smell pretty ripe, too.

I had sushi last night, but my girlfriend couldn’t join us. I told her before I went that I’d be thinking of her with every bite.

I’m quite partial to a bit of catfish myself.

What does ‘fish gone off’ mean?
Is it rotten fish as opposed to just fish?

Oxymoron's avatar

The only reason it would smell rancid would be if she has an infection or some sort of dirty poon.

casheroo's avatar

Yeah, maybe if she’s got an infection. Not any other time.

DrC's avatar

What are you talking about? Are you dealing with an infected vagina? @Sandydog If your wife asked this question, why did you post the question? Are you not sure how you wanted to answer her? Do you think her pussy smells like fish gone bad?

Blondesjon's avatar

Only when she’s used it to clean the aquarium.

Vunessuh's avatar

@Blondesjon LMAO. Damn, that was good.

Sandydog's avatar

I should have just said “smell fishy”. Me putting gone off has made it sound stronger than what I meant. We were looking at some fish earlier when she said “that smells like pussy” and laughed.

Vunessuh's avatar

If every time you eat her out, it smells like a fish market, there might be a problemo.
Either she’s got an infection or she doesn’t clean herself enough.
I think it’s generally normal for a pussy to mildly smell like fish, but you can go past the expiration date if you don’t shower.

Cruiser's avatar

This question smells like fish!

JeanPaulSartre's avatar

I’m sure you don’t smell like roses dipped in fresh baked cookies down there, either.

slick44's avatar

Dosnt matter which sex you are, if you dont wash, you smell.

jbfletcherfan's avatar

Another question to laugh at the posts. LOLL. Oooohhh, boy.

Trichomonas, gardenerella, and other bacterial infections can cause foul smelling vaginas. Have her consult her gyn or primary doctor

judochop's avatar

Occasionally you will run across a partner who’s chemistry is not the same as yours. This can cause what you are referring to as “fish gone off.” A clean vagina does not and should not put off any scent however if you are still smelling something and it is clean then it is possible that you two just have different chemical make-ups.
I don’t really know why everyone is making fun of the question, I’ve wondered the same thing many years ago. I know I am not going to be getting any blow jobs after a 20 miles bike ride and I am sure you are not going to gallop the bologna pony in to tuna town right when she gets back from the gym. Either way, if it smells in the southern regions then don’t put your nose so close to it. If this can’t be avoided then perhaps you can try some Honey Dust or some flavored dusts to help ease your third and fourth senses in to the flower of life or just kick back and pull the wool for her, either way man…You should better find a solution to the problem. Enjoi.

Either you’re deluding yourself with cultural misogyny, or your lady has an infection. A healthy vagina does not smell fishy.

stranger_in_a_strange_land's avatar

No, my lady always smelled (and tasted) heavenly.

trailsillustrated's avatar

ew, no, someone needs to see a dr. like a gyno dr

DrasticDreamer's avatar

Bacterial vaginosis smells like fish – a healthy vagina does not.

Violet's avatar

It shouldn’t smell bad. If it does, the pH balance is off. She may have a yeast infection.

essieness's avatar

If it’s really smelly, she most likely has bacterial vaginosis and she should probably see a doctor.

There’s also some new over the counter stuff out called RePhresh that is supposed to do wonders for vaginal odor.

Rufus_T_Firefly's avatar

I agree. I absolutely love the scent of a woman. That is, of course, unless, there’s more going on down there than there should be. The question itself made me think of Jim Carrey in ‘Me, Myself and Irene’.

Hank: “Vagiclean”, huh? Whats the matter, honey? Little extra cheese on the taco?

Mrs. Bittman: Excuse me?

Hank: No, excuse me. There’s no tag on this. [grabs the microphone] Price check on Vagiclean, Aisle 5. I repeat: price check on Vagiclean, Aisle 5. That’s Vagiclean. We’ve got a customer down here with a full-on fallopian fungus. She’s baking a loaf of bread and I think its sourdough. (sniffs loudly) Better put a rush on that.

Dr_Lawrence's avatar

The stereotype is based the exception not the rule. If you consider yourself grown up and still believe and therefore expect that a normal healthy vagina smells bad and is therefore unappealing, you are sadly misinformed and possibly just plain ignorant.

Discard this misguided believe and learn to respect and appreciate the vagina and the women in your romantic life (that is if you wish to have one!)

eponymoushipster's avatar

that’s just lovely.

drhat77's avatar

Frequent douching may actually promote bacterial over growth. So all that advice mom gave you about that not so fresh feeling was wrong

eponymoushipster's avatar

i think this question is an example of frequent douching.

Violet's avatar

@drhat77 is correct.. douching does more harm than good

borderline_blonde's avatar

@JeanPaulSartre I’m sure you don’t smell like roses dipped in fresh baked cookies down there, either. LMFAO! The only reason men don’t realize their own genitals smell “off” (and by “off”, I mean sometimes a little like roadkill, a little like dirty dish rag) is because women are often too polite to comment.

Adagio's avatar

This question reminded me of something I had completely forgotten for reasons that will soon become apparent When I was at Intermediate school (11–12) there was a joke going around the school. Question: Why did the little girl put a snapper down her pants? Answer: so she would smell like all the big girls. I suddenly understand what the joke was all about.

ETpro's avatar

No, not at all. I can’t think of any sexier perfume than a nice hot pussy. Of course, I am not talking about people who disregard even basic cleanliness.

Yetanotheruser's avatar

Only if she’s “gone off”!

Sophief's avatar

Maybe a dirty disgusting woman, any woman that washes, then no.

TheJoker's avatar

No, but perhaps thats because all the women I’ve been with have been clean.

jo_with_no_space's avatar

@Violet Typically, yeast infections have no associated odour… As @DrasticDreamer said, it’s a bacterial one that smells of fish.

Violet's avatar

@jo_with_no_space there is often a smell that goes with yeast infection

ETpro's avatar

@jo_with_no_space I can smell the difference in a yeast infection. My diagnostic abilities have been well bourne out by later gynecological exams. But yeast infections don’t cause a fishy smell, just one that’s not quite right.

jo_with_no_space's avatar

@Violet and @ETpro Well I guess I’m different then in that I’ve had yeast infections and they have never smelt.

Violet's avatar

@jo_with_no_space not all women have the smell during a yeast infection.

Silhouette's avatar

I don’t agree but someone must, it’s no accident the vagina cleaner of choice is vinegar. Chips anyone?

ucme's avatar

@Silhouette Chips with anything. Yummy.

sparrowfeed's avatar

Yes it does when you are on your period.

Eggie's avatar

If she isn’t hygienic then that would happen.
