I am not a male but for my body powder, I use Gold Bond body powder. I have very large breasts and on hot days or days that I know I may be perspirating more than usual, I throw some of the body under and around my breasts before I put on my bra. There’s a little menthol in the body so I feel a bit of a nice cooling sensation soon after I put it on. No itching, no sweating, makes me feel great. I highly recommend it and I think it would work well “down there” too for guys if it works for my breasts.

@seekingwolf Does Gold Bond kind of have a sort of fresh scent?

Baby powder is just fine. I think you can get it in all kinds of scents. Maybe even unscented. Mine smells of peppermint, and tells me that in California, it is considered to be a carcinogen. Sigh. That’s so reassuring. I have no idea what the brand is. CVS, maybe.

@_Whitetigress : Mixing scents may turn out to be a bad idea depending on who’s sniffing your balls. Mucking up the scents may get you more offensive results if they don’t mix with your hormonal chemistry, unscented may be the best way to go.

The Extra-Strength Gold bond body powder works great, and will also feel like you dipped your goods in a bowl of Listerine. Coffee no longer necessary.

Hey. What’s wrong with baby powder? The real kind, Johnson’s Baby Powder. I use it all the time. I even take it to the gym in my bag. A few of my loser friends try to give me shit about it, but they are all talk anyway. The stuff works, and I like the smell. Makes me think of babies, which is a nice thought since babies are cute.

This link includes a great deal of advice on the subject including the following:

“NO, no, no people! Real men shave their balls in a warm shower, then spray lavendar Febreze (yes, on the balls), then sprinkle baby powder, then a second spray of lavendar Febreze (in that EXACT order). Don’t question the method, just try it. Your nuts will be tap-dancing in your pants. Its really a life of luxury for your boys and it just feels right, ya know”

Who knew?

This is the talcum powder that has a great masculine smell.

Corn Starch.

Gold Bond smells like freshness as well as a bit of peppermint.

I vote for Gold Bond.

Simone54 works in kitchens so he is correct. All you need is a big box of corn starch.
Doesn’t smell like anything and is the main ingredient in baby powder.
Cooks in prep kitchens the world over drench their balls in the stuff…

Theres a talc made by Pinaud which smells great. The can is green and white and has a line drawing of a gentleman in top hat and tails , so definitely masculine.

You might have to try a few different stores since its not well advertised. I guess they’re relying on their longstanding reputation.

It smell exactly like Canoe (a mens cologne that was at the. height of its popularity back in the 70s) But it still smells great.
