It isn't all the time, just some of the time, but when it is that time, he sticks. That stale, unwashed stink of B.O. I don't have a particularly good sense of smell either.
Do I say something? I can't believe he intends to go around like that.
Yes, you should.
Be kind about it, though. Couch it in terms of, "I believe you may have become immune to your anti-perspirant. That happens to me sometimes. You might want to change brands."
Yes, but do it offhand. "Geez, Bob, I know I'd want for you to tell me this since we're good friends, so I want to tell you: you're a little ripe tonight. I think you want to start using a stronger deodorant."
What does it smell like, OP? Masculine and musky, or Korean and garlicky?
Yes,but try to be nice about it and if your date has bo don't say anything until the time comes to get intimate,the volunteer to bathe with them.I had a lady weant me to eat her out but her vagina smelled literally like diarrhea.If she hadn't ahd to leave suddenly I would have found a way of getting her into the bathtub.I sucked her toes first and they smelled better,quite nice in fact.
R6 - fucking hell that was a disgusting post. worst I have ever seen..
Wow, no kidding, R7... R6's post was monstrous.
JETT @r6 is a datalounge legend in the making.
I can see the parody posts now. Lets hope he/she posts more!
Jett, you had me at "her vagina smelled literally like diarrhea"
This thread is clearly not going to be kind to me. And yes, Jett sounds kind of cute, but that was NOT my pussy.
Is this "friend" the same guy who started the "I Hate to shower" thread?
Smelly feet are the worst.
It smells somewhere between stale and garlicky. It isn't pleasant. It smells like dry stink if that makes any sense.
No but that thread made me think of it.
When I smell it I think I've got to say something and then I don't want to because who wants to be told that at his age (or any age really.)
Then I don't see him and the smell obviously fades so I forget.
But it's... a barrier to people reacting with pleasure at seeing him if my nose is any indication. And I don't have a particularly good sense of smell.
He is on a lot of antibiotics. Can they make you stink?
You are not much of a friend if you do not say something. "Miss Thing you need to take a shower. Seriously, are you going to start wearing patchouli too, because you smell like a hippy?"
I'd find a friend who smells better.
There are medications that can affect body odor. Is your friend ill or taking drugs for anything?
Leave a can of Right Guard deodorant on his desk. If I recall, I think that's what they used to do in the old RG television commercial.
I've had the urge to smell some man body odor, pits, ass...mmm. Preferably a blonde's.
Next time he walk into the room, snap your fingers above your head and say, "Gurrrl, you so stinky!"
I was at the pharmacy yesterday, a 30-something woman sat down waiting for her prescription. From 2 meters away and despite wearing a winter coat, I could smell her BO. She clearly did not use deodorant. After waiting 20 minutes, I was in the aisles, her god awful BO had permeated the entire pharmacy. It was like armpit BO pot pourri.
How can you stink that bad through a winter coat? What is so terrifying about deodorant? She could afford it, she was actually well-dressed. How could she stand it? Her husband must stink too or he wouldn't touch her. There's no excuse not to wear at least deodorant. There are aluminum-free versions.
BO is the worst when it's inescapable.
Yes, it's awful and yes, you should say something.
I noticed a friend had developed terrible body odor. I said something when we were alone. It turned out he'd gotten horribly depressed, stopped bathing, felt suicidal, etc.
Personal hygiene is a good indication of emotional/mental health. The sooner you say something to your friend, the better.
I knew this girl once who had the worst BO ever, it was like this mixture of pit stink and urine or something, and one time she invited me to her apartment and it stank just like her! She had a cute boyfriend, also, I could never understand it, did they not smell that stink? I am so obsessed with personal hygiene, I can't imagine.
Do most people have the same body odor smell? Everyone I know who had BO had a similar bitter strong onion smell.
OP, if he's black it probably isn't BO. They all smell that way a little.
Pour a large box of baking soda and water over him.
It might be the clothes, some people do not launder them regularly and the stale smell comes from clothes that stink.
R25, that is a pretty ridiculous statement. I have coworkers and neighbors who are Black and none of them have ever smelled that way. Nor has anyone in a store standing next to me.
You had me at hell, B.O.
If it is more than once then, yeah, you should say something. There is the off chance that he doesn't realize he stinks. And, anyway, it gags YOU and you should not have to put up with that. Be nice, though.
Too bad OP can't hook up his buddy with the numerous Datalounge raunch queens.
To them, BO is oh so masculine.
[quote]OP, if he's black it probably isn't BO. They all smell that way a little.
No, to me black people's B.O. smells more like rancid bacon. White people smell like vinegar and sulfur.
Don't discuss it with him. Just get him naked and give him a thorough tongue-bath. Voila! Problem solved!
OP, offer to lick his pits and give him a reacharound.
White people smell like dogs when they are wet.
Woof. Love a ripe dude.
There is an elegant way to suggest he has had a deodorant failure. What is his diet like? Stinky food leads to stinky people, e.g., the entire Indian subcontinent.
Years ago, my cousin dated a girl who stank. My mother and I picked up my cousin first, then we picked her up and were giving each other, "OMFG!" looks. The girl was very chatty, and it turned out she was very good friends with a guy I'd gone to HS with. I had to hold in my laughter because that guy was the smelliest person in HS. When he sat down in a classroom, the guy sitting next to him would get up and open a window. Guys threw soap and deodorant in his gym locker when he opened it. He claimed he was allergic to soap and deodorant.
My cousin (who was very poor, had been badly abused by his psycho father and had no self esteem) married this stank ho and she wound up leaving him for his best friend. My mother said, "he must smell as bad as she does."
Meanwhile, the computer revolution came along and my cousin got in on the ground floor and is extremely rich today.
Is white guy BO generally stronger?
Took a while, but this is getting interesting.
[quote] Do I say something?
Not if he smells like curry.
But what if he smells like Ann Curry?
When I've had a friend like that I would tell him that maybe his CLOTHES need to be laundered. That lets him know there is an odor but doesn't directly refence his body itself.
Three words: Dude, you stankin'.
Lick his pits then wipe some of his armpit juice on your upper lip as a memory of the stench.
lol, R38. that is a line from "chameleon street", an extremely obscure movie that won sundance many years ago. haven't heard it prior to or since.
No R50, the blacks have been saying that about us since WAY before that.
[quote]There are medications that can affect body odor. Is your friend ill or taking drugs for anything?
Yes. He has a bacterial infection deep in his lungs that they have been trying to kill for a year and he is on antibiotics.
But I think he's stunk before, though it isn't like Pig Pen and he stinks all the time.
I am seeing him this weekend. P.U.
What is the best description of fat stank?
I know a very obese woman, whose admitted favorite network is the Food Channel, and she stinks all the time.
Fat stank doesn't smell like armpit b.o., btw for you NYC'ers who've seen a true fatty.
Surely someone can describe the smell...it's beyond my powers.
[quote]Leave a can of Right Guard deodorant on his desk.
Great idea. Nothing like the combination of B.O. and deodorant to make a party swing.
Tell him to take a shower.
This is a Freeper thread!

and then she died.

This is why men and women should shave their bodies. Hair stanks. It's a bacteria breeding ground.
It's BBO, OP.
R62 hair whisks the moisture away from the body leading to less odor. Nothing stinks more than a shaved bit.
My ex used to eat a lot of garlic - including raw garlic - and the garlic odor would come out of his pores. Even an hour after he showered, he'd smell of garlic if he had eaten a lot of it the day before. EECH
The natural smell of my b.o. is chicken noodle soup.
You know, he does eat a lot of garlic and now I think of it... that's part of the smell. It's like a stale, warm blend of garlic.
I don't have the diplomatic skills to say you stink in any language. I might do that website thing.
The natural smell of my BO is a little salty, like the ocean.
