My friend’s penis smells like fish and that keeps me from having sex

DEAR DEIDRE: My boyfriend’s penis smells like fish – and that keeps me from having sex.

I’m worried he has an infection and I’ve told him to see his doctor but he says I’m overreacting and that’s normal.

He thinks I’m going off on him, but he’s not the problem – it’s his stinky penis

No problem is too small, too big or too embarrassing. Read our personal answers here.

He’s 29 and I’m 31 and we’ve been together for five years.

The fishy smell has only been a problem for about a year.

I was wondering if he caught a nasty STD, but I know he wasn’t cheating.

We’ve always used condoms, but lately I haven’t felt like having sex at all, let alone oral sex.

He thinks I’m going off on him, but he’s not the problem – it’s his stinky penis.

It’s gotten to the point where I won’t even let him touch me unless he’s straight out of the shower.

What could this smell be?

DEIDRE SAYS: There’s probably nothing sinister about that, and there’s no reason to think he was unfaithful.

It could be a simple yeast or urine infection.

But most likely it’s smegma, the naturally occurring lubricant on the penis that can build up behind the foreskin if not thoroughly cleaned.

Your friend really needs to see his GP to be sure.

My support pack, Standing Up For Yourself, is designed to help you convince him.
