I am intimate with a female friend of mine who has very strong odor down below. About 4-5 days before her period started, I could smell her down there. That was about Sunday and her period still hasn't fully kicked in now on Friday. I know she doesn't have an infection and she told me her periods are normally very heavy. I told her about the odor, and she said it is normal for her and that it doesn't bother her. She mentioned that she could water douche but she said that isn't good for her and that it wouldn't be good to do often. Her diet seems to be decent and she is conscious to avoid anything that might lead to a yeast or other infection.
So far, the best we have been able to do is shower directly before sex. The smell is mostly but not completely gone after that. It returns within an hour or two and gets progressively worse as time passes. The reason I started the thread is that the smell is bad enough that is kills my arousal and is definitely impacting our sex life. I hate to use the word revolting, but it honestly is. I can easily smell it through shorts and panties to the point that we can't be intimately close without her showering right beforehand.
Those who know me know I am very attracted to that part of a woman's body. Among other things I love going downtown and anything else to do with stimulating that area. To be turned off by that is a very bad thing for both of us. Suggestions on what else we can do about it? My biggest fear is that it may not be just a period issue. She may have odor problems down there in general and I don't want odor problems to mess up what could be a great time for both of us. This isn't really something I can easily ignore, even during regular sex. She gets very wet down there and I want to be majorly turned on, not off by that.
