Various STDs or a urinary track infection (UTI), or a yeast infection (though rare, guys can actually get it).

Its very simple and straight. You don’t a doctor to tell you that it’s all got to do with poor hygiene. Lack of good hygiene in your private organs can cause some serious infections and this can lead to disorders as well. Hence, one should take proper care. Hygiene should be maintained to avoid disorders like herpes.

The skin of the penis will not smell by itself, unless with poor hygiene. The most common cause of a fishy smell is due to urinary track infection.

After you wank, don't just wipe it dry. Wash it. Especially if you are UNcircumcised, dude.
Stop putting it inside your girl unless she washes herself out. That's a common fishy smelling spot.

This is the RIGHT answer: your butt sweats, and you cant feel it. The sweat goes to your "area" and makes it smell bad

Bacteria is the culprit. This is a problem for a lot of men... particularly those who are uncircumcised. Make sure you are washing out your foreskin with soap and water every single day. And you might want to follow this up with an antibacterial penis health creme. I use one called Man1 Man Oil and it works great. It eliminates bacteria long after I get out of the shower.. my odor problems are no more. Check it out. Hope this helps.
