Okay guys, let’s get real for a second and face the reality of the situation: our balls stink.
Yes, you read that right.
My balls stink, your balls stink, all men’s balls stink!
So what’s a guy to do?
The way I see it, there’s really only two options for dealing with ball funk.
1.You embrace the stink. You relish it. You confidently bask daily in the unadulterated funk of your ball-bag without remorse or shame.
2. You do something about it. You grab your balls by the neck and say “HEY! Enough is enough damnit! I will not live my life hindered and afraid of your foul odor!”
I would naturally expect any respectable man to choose the second option. A Guy who chooses the first option often lives his life as a reject. A school and workplace outcast. He’s often the subject of cruel whispers and the butt of many jokes. His name is usually Kyle.
So now that you’ve accepted the fact that your testicles stink, it’s time to take preventative measures that significantly reduce or eliminate ball odor from forming.
Check out my list of best ball and body powders for men
Ball and Body Powder
One the greatest inventions mankind has ever created is a white powdery substance that brings pleasure and sheer bliss to any guy who uses it.
And no, I’m not talking about cocaine.
What I’m referring to is a magical powder that is applied to your balls and body that helps eliminate stink, sweat, chafing, irritation, and discomfort. I’m talking about ball and body powder.
What to Look for in a Ball and Body Powder
The first thing you have to understand is that all ball and body powders are NOT created equal.
I spent many years in the restaurant industry and like any cook will tell you, 8+ hours a day in a hot and humid kitchen is absolute murder on your crotch and balls.
While the usual sweat and stink were minor inconveniences, the major problem was the stinging, burning, chafed skin feeling that plagued my every move.
Clearly unable to go on working in that degree of discomfort, I found solace in regularly applying those cheap grocery store bought body powders (Gold Bond anyone?). While the Gold Bond did alleviate much of the friction, irritation and discomfort, it didn’t last long, and needed to be reapplied often.
It wasn’t until years later I discovered that there are some much more effective and longer lasting options available on the market.
If you’re interested, check out my article covering the best ball and body powders for men.
While these “premium” body powders are much more effective than the cheap shit you’ll find at the grocery store, they also typically cost quite a bit more. But as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for.
Some of the benefits of using a premium ball and body powder:
- More effective
- Safe, natural ingredients
- Longer lasting
- Less powder needed per use
- Smoother, silkier texture
When it comes to men’s grooming products I prefer to use safe, natural ingredients on my skin, especially if I’m putting it on my penis and balls region. I trust that most of you guys would agree.
Some common ingredients you’ll find in all-natural ball and body powders are:
- Corn starch
- Baking soda
- Arrowroot powder
- Essential oils
- Aloe leaf extract
- Menthol (cooling)
If you’re looking for a safe, all-natural, and highly effective ball and body powder, I recommend checking out Galaxy Dust Body Powder for Men. Galaxy Dust not only eliminates sweat, odor, and chafing, but it also smells excellent and is available in a cooling option that feels awesome on a hot, sweaty pair of balls.
How to Powder Your Balls
Now that you have your bottle of powder in one hand and your balls in the other, it’s clearly time to start dousing those puppies in powder, right?
While applying powder to your testicles isn’t exactly rocket science, there are a few things to keep in mind to ensure optimum efficacy of the powder and to help extend the life of the bottle.
• Shower first
Before you even think about blasting your nutsack with powder – get in the shower. Ball powder is not supposed to mask the scent of testicle odor, it’s intended to prevent it. So the first step to applying powder to your balls is to make sure your crotch, nuts, crack, and gooch are thoroughly cleaned and free of odor and odor causing bacteria. Check out my list of best soaps and washes for men’s balls.
• Make sure you’re dry
Yes, cake batter is delicious. But that slop that’s covering your penis and balls after you’ve applied ball powder while you’re still wet doesn’t taste nearly as good. Once you’re all clean and out of the shower it’s important to make sure you thoroughly dry yourself off. You might be surprised how much moisture can hide in the cracks, crevices, and folds of your skin, so make sure to really dig deep with the towel. If you’re man enough, I suggest bending over and spreading ass in front of a strong fan. Sure, it’ll feel demeaning as hell but it definitely gets the job done.
• Waste not
Now that your balls are thoroughly clean and dry it’s time to apply the powder. The best practice for applying ball powder is to pour a quarter size amount into the palm of your hand and manually apply it to the desired area. This will help ensure that your trouble areas are thoroughly covered and it’ll significantly reduce powder waste.
Application methods I DON’T recommend:
- Having a strong fan blast the powder back at you.
- Blindly dumping the powder down the front of your pants.
- Creating a Lebron James type powder bomb in the air.
Not only are these methods highly ineffective, they are also messy as hell and very wasteful. If you’re rocking a premium bottle of ball powder you want to get the most out of your investment. The goal is to get more powder on your balls and less on the ground.
What’s the Difference Between Body Powder and Talcum Powder?
Since body powder and talcum powder are designed to serve the same purpose, people often use the term interchangeably to describe both.
While there’s little difference in terms of functionality between these two products, it really all comes down to the ingredients used to formulate them.
As the name suggests, talcum powder is made from a natural mineral called talc, and is comprised of 3 main elements: oxygen, silicon, and magnesium.
In its powder form, talc is really good at absorbing moisture and reducing friction – which is why it is commonly found in many skincare products that are designed to eliminate sweat, moisture, and irritation, including:
- Foot powder
- Baby powder
- Medicated powder
Talcum Powder Health Risks
In its natural form, talc has been shown to contain cancer causing asbestos and has even been linked to ovarian cancer in women.
While talcum powder is now required to be free of asbestos, woman are still encouraged to use non-talc based powders for personal use.
Just like talcum powder, body powder is designed to eliminate sweat, moisture, friction, odor, and bacteria but is typically formulated with cornstarch instead of talc.
Can You Put Baby Powder on Your Balls? Is it Safe?
Yes, of course. Baby powder is specifically designed for the sensitive skin of a newborn baby. That means it’s completely safe for you to dust your balls in the stuff if you so desire.
But it really shouldn’t be a question of whether you can put baby powder on your balls. The real question is, should you?
While baby powder ingredients vary slightly from brand to brand, they’re all essentially designed to serve the same purpose: prevent diaper rash, and reduce moisture buildup inside a diaper. Another thing they all tend to have in common is that characteristic baby powder fragrance.
I don’t know about you guys, but I don’t wear a diaper and I certainly don’t want to smell like I have one on. I’d also be willing to wager that the funky crotch region of a full-grown adult male probably requires something a little stronger than powder designed for the sensitive skin of a baby.
While baby powder is capable of stopping sweaty balls, I recommend you step up to the big leagues and consider a body powder that’s designed specifically for the crotch of an adult male. One of my personal favorite ball and body powders for men is Fromonda Citrus IPA. It not only eliminates ball sweat, odor, and bacteria, it has an awesome fragrance that’s inspired by a fresh citrus IPA beer. What could be more manlier than that?
Questions & Answers
Can I have sex or receive a BJ while powder is on my balls and penis?
Can you? Yes. Should you? Eh, probably not.
I personally would not engage in sexual activity with my balls doused in body powder, but that’s just me. Vaginas can be a pretty sensitive part of the female body, and therefore might not react well to body powder breaching the inner sanctum.
Less risky, but still ill advised, is receiving a BJ while your junk is covered in powder. Not only will it taste pretty terrible for the lucky lady, but it might also make her throat and mouth feel weird since body powder contains ingredients that are designed to repel moisture.
My best advice is to either wash the powder off of your junk before engaging in sexual activity, or simply forgo the powder all together if the possibility of sex is in the air.
Are all ball powders cooling? I don’t like the cooling sensation on my balls.
No. Not all ball powders contain cooling ingredients.
While many men enjoy the refreshing feel of cooling body powder, some men on the other hand actually feel discomfort and irritation from cooling body powders.
If you are not a fan of cooling body powders, all you have to do is check the ingredients list to make sure it doesn’t contain any ingredients that offer cooling properties.
Cooling ingredients to watch out for:
- Menthyl lactate
Do ball/body powders cause cancer?
No. Ball and body powders do not cause cancer.
The rumor you are likely referencing is pertaining to talcum powder. Talc was the primary ingredient in most body powders and baby powders for many years. But due to reports that talcum powder runs the risk of containing trace amounts of cancer causing asbestos, its use has steadily declined in skincare products in recent years.
Nowadays most companies steer away from using talc in their body powders and instead substitute cornstarch in its place.
How do I stop butt sweat?
Good old butt sweat, AKA swamp ass. Is there anything worse than going about your day with a wet, soggy ass crack? I’ll admit, dealing with sweaty balls and crotch is one thing, but having to endure a soaking wet ass crack all day just sounds a bit worse in my opinion.
If you regularly suffer from sweaty ass crack and swamp ass, I suggest tackling the problem the same way you would tackle sweaty balls. Apply body powder.
While the process of actually getting body powder into the ass crack might seem like a logistical nightmare, I assure you the benefits will make it all worth while in the end.
Body powders are formulated to absorb sweat and moisture, deodorize the skin, and reduce friction. If there is one area on the body that would greatly benefit from these qualities, it’s 100% going to be the ass crack.

? Good stuff
Thanks for reading, Sean ??
Thanks Trouserdog! With this advice I was able to get my trouser snake some love finally.
For the longest time I couldn’t stop my balls from drenching my boxers. It got so ridiculous that I had to find a solution. This one time I was working my shift at the local DairyQueen handing customers their soft serve and I felt a drip of sweat run down my leg. That was post college. Well after that I had a huge come up and landed a job selling fragrances at Macy’s. I soon found that career to be problematic with my little issue. People would smell my balls instead of the Chanel! Life was over… imagine T-Dog, never having your penissaurus gobbled on again. Tragic.
I’m glad to say that’s the past. I am fresh as can be thanks to your advice and the women can’t stop slobbing on my knob like corn on the cob.
I love Dairy Queen.
I laughed out loud at this article at least 3 times. Thank you for the solid advice and humor I loved this piece
Thanks for commenting, Max ??
yes, i also apply make up foundation on my penis with sponge puffs & applying the loose powder on my balls & dick with loose powder puff… I love powder puffs sponge.
Hey…I found your article very informative…and hilarious. I have been using either Johnson & Johnson aloe and vitamin e powder on my balls and the front of my body. It works well cause I work in a distribution center and it does get rather toasty during the summer. My issue is chafing. By the wnd of a 12 hour shift, I can feel chafing in my thighs. I was wearing black jeans to work until I was able to purchase some shorts. It has been better since I wore the shorts one day prior to the weekend, but there was less of a chafing issue. With all this talk of women getting ovarian cancer and mesothelioma, I was concerned about myself. But I stumbled across your article and was wondering if the products you advertise will help in my chafing dilemma?
Hey LaMonte, thanks for commenting. I totally hear you on the chafing issue. I worked as a cook for many years and it gets brutally hot and humid in restaurant kitchens. The heat combined with constant movement was absolutely murder on my balls in terms of chafing, irritation, and discomfort. If you’re concerned about cancer causing ingredients in your powder I recommend you check out my list of best ball and body powders for men. Each one of the powders on that list is designed specifically to eliminate sweat, odor, chafing, and discomfort. Another suggestion I have for you is to bring your ball powder to work with you. 12 hours is a very long shift and you will be glad to have a bottle of ball powder on hand if chafing and discomfort begin to set in. Thanks again for commenting, LaMonte. Good luck.
My cock and balls are smelling good I wanna chew them
Now I know how to powder my balls. Thanks!
Thanks for commenting, Todd.
Wash your ass, change your pants!
I shave my dick, sack, and crack. That and applying menthol powder after showering (or when I should have showered, but didn’t), makes all the difference in the world. I feel like I use less powder when hair-free, and the powder is getting applied directly to the source of funk’s creation. Also, I love the frosty kisses of an angel all over my junk early in the morning.
My question, though, is what the hell happens to the powder? If the powder is absorbing all this crotch and butt slime, where does it magically vanish to? There’s no residue or any sign of the powder by day’s end, yet I’m reasonably fresh and clean. This defies the Law of Conservation of Mass. The mutated slurry must still exist somewhere in spacetime, right?
It’s one of the great mysteries of the universe Connor. Nobody really knows what happens to the ball sweat/powder slurry. I just assumed that it takes on a life of its own and crawls up the rectum.
Not only informative, great sense of humor.
Thank you for commenting!
For the EASIEST, CLEANEST application.. Take an old sock, we all have one eventually that doesn’t have a mate.. Put the powder in it.. (preferably one with out huge holes).. LMAO.. then use it as a powder ball for the balls.. Simple.
Nice, I like it. Thanks for sharing.
SIMPLE – Use a ‘neck duster’ like the barber uses on your neck after a haircut. Works great!
Great idea, Thomas. Thanks for commenting.
Instructions unclear, dick caught in fan 🙁
I hate when that happens.
At a paintball game I watched a group of younger guys in a circle , laughing. I had to investigate. They all were powdering their sacks. It was a hot summer day and their was a lot of sand in the air. My balls had been suffering for many years because of my age. At the time I was around 50. They were using Anti Monkey Butt .The name made me laugh. I asked to join in and they welcomed me in to the circle. We are still friends to this day and I never knew much a fresh set of balls can make your day better.
