Today, as part of my medical anatomy course, I had to give a presentation about an STD and the effects it has on women. The class was comprised almost entirely of girls. I become extremely anxious and accidentally stated "Vaginas are smelly" as my opening statement. FML

22, soap can irritate and upset the pH, which can create more problems. There are other ways and products besides plain old soap.

But even still, 26, a vagina shouldn't have a noticeable or bad smell with or without cleaning - go to a doctor.

142, number 11's use of the word "can't" strongly implies that she was trying to state a fact. What's this opinion business you're going on about?

Yeah, he should say something like, is normal that they smell, but there are some smell that are not, trying to make it out of an awkward situation

Well, they are stinky..

No. Actually they are not. They probably develop an unpleasant smell from a lack of personal hygiene. But you know, see how rosy a penis smells after some deprivation of soap and showers. I think it can be a two way street!

Oh, italiancows, ask me how balls smell/taste after my boyfriend's been at work all day. Saying that vaginas are smelly to a woman is offensive because we've already spent our entire lives wading through messages saying we should be ashamed of our bodies, so that even if we do find a guy who loves us and wants to have killer sex with us, we're ashamed of the way we smell. Even though it's natural. I'm sure this happens to some guys, but I'm also sure it's WAY less prevalent.

UrbanOutfitter - No, a malodorous vagina CAN be a sign of bacterial vaginosis, or it can be a sign of poor hygiene. Yeast infections typically don't have an odor, nor do STDs.

Oooh, there go your chances with any girl in your course. :(

FYL though, presentations are nerve-wracking. Especially when talking about something unpleasant like STDs and vaginas to a roomful of women.

Hopefully you finished "when infected with std's, bacteria or yeast".

On the upside that's one hell of an icebreaker. You've already said the worst thing possible so now you can go on without fear of screwing up.
