Not have sex with him.

If you can't tell your spouse they smell like shiat, you shouldn't be married.

scottydoesntknow: If you can't tell your spouse they smell like shiat, you shouldn't be married.


And I read the headline wrong. That's what I get for smokin before farking.

So, if you can't tell your boyfriend/girlfriend they smell like shiat, that's on you. Live with it, or break up with them.

Lack of attention to hygiene is a deal killer. Pull the ejection handle now.
 
2021-07-21 11:22:51 PM  
break up.

if you can't be brave and honest enough to say "i only want your bits touching my bits when i feel they are washed and un-smelly" you'll never be honest about ANYTHING in this "relationship".

so break up.

Ask yourself one question. This is the question: Do you care if your mom knows you banging some smelly dude?
 
2021-07-21 11:41:44 PM  
Stay in the relationship as punishment for being a spineless coward!

Next time he wants cowgirl, surprise him with a Hot Karl instead.

I can assure this woman that Men's hygiene only improves over time.

Buy some basic toiletries, leave them on his side of the bed, with a note:

Fix your stink or I'll fix it for you by changing the locks.  Your choice.
 
2021-07-22 1:15:04 AM  
Why put up with him if he smells bad? 

You stink e poo, no long time

You can fix him, hang in there

I'm much more interested in the second story, about the couple who engage in frequent "mutual mastication"

Put shiat in your nose.

Tada!

Body odor is one thing, but you could knock a buzzard off a sh*twagon.

Is this a repeat from like a month ago?
 
2021-07-22 7:25:40 AM  
Tell him, "Look dude, you don't work on a Klingon garbage scow. Take a f*cking shower! And use soap!".
 
2021-07-22 7:55:12 AM  
Just call him "stinkydick" in front of everyone until he gets the message.
 
2021-07-22 7:59:57 AM  
FFS, we're trying to have a civilization here.
 
2021-07-22 8:03:48 AM  
Look, if you're a dirty, bad girl who needs to be humiliated, roll with it. You are getting what you think you deserve.

But if you have a shred of dignity under your kinks: "It's like this; you stink, and your stink is crossing my boundaries.  Wash up or break up."

Or a follow-up? I can imagine it has gotten worse with the recent hot weather.

if you're not mature enough to just tell your partner that they smell like dirty ass, then you aren't mature enough to have adult relationships with people.

An important question from the show Sex Ed: "If you don't trust your partner to have a conversation with you about anal douching then why do you trust your partner to actually have anal sex?"  Point being: you're already being 10x as intimate with them as that conversation, so you should just be able to have the conversation.

Show him what you want by having sex with a man covered in Hai Karate or whatever, and having boyfriend Baldrick watch and take notes.

Looks like someone finally opened that vocabulary builder calendar from Christmas, subby.

If you're trying to spare his feelings, keep in mind not f*cking him is probably the most hurtful thing you can do, especially if he doesn't understand why (I'd much rather by pushed into the shower than just pushed away.)

If you want to take a softer approach, don't tell him he's just a filthy animal, tell him you think your new medication is making you much more sensitive to odors and you feel bad about it but you just need him to get really clean so it's not a distraction.
 
2021-07-22 12:39:24 PM  
Jeez. The answers of course is butt stuff. But as these guys are gay maybe that's taken care of already.

I don't know. I'm usually firmly in the butt-stuff-is-the-answer camp. But if the problem is odour ... I'm not so sure this time.

Are they "baby birding" each other?

Say: let's have sex in the shower!
 
2021-07-22 4:22:46 PM  
Pour a bottle of cologne down your shirt and play it off like you don't smell anything.

Or pour one on him.

This may be the smartest post you've done on this site.  More of this please.

I installed AC unit in my bedroom when my girl friend at the time said its too hot in here to have sex.

Tell your significant other to take a shower in order to have sex. Sometimes guys need to be told directly what is going on.
