The doctor who removed Darkstaff's PMMA commented that it 'smelled like kitty litter'.

Ever since I've had my PMMA, I notice that my unit definitely smells different. It has a different 'musk' to it (LOL, serious). Occasionally I get a wiff of everything down there and it smells, well, like kitty litter. Or at least, different than it did before. Even after I shower and I'm really clean, I can still smell it a few minutes later (much easier without clothes on). Sometimes I even smell it through gym shorts if I have my feet up.

So, either PMMA actually does smell bad (maybe large nodules smell more, which is why mine is so potent), or I just have a smelly dick that I never noticed before. All I can say is that before PMMA, I never caught myself going 'what is that smell?' Then leaning down and realizing it was my dick. It's not necessarily a horrible smell, but it's not ideal either.

So now, I ask all of you PMMA recipients: Can I smell yo dick??


Looking forward to replies, as this is indeed an actual issue for me. Bizarre, I know.

Does not smell.

If you think about what you are suggesting it sounds a bit impossible or at least "in your head". As Shinade O'Conner likes to say.

You may have picked up a fungel infection. I remember catching that once or trice after I had some dirty pussy. Or if I left my drawers on a dirty spot at a rub'n'tug or at the gym.

Just saying.

I would consider other possibilities in this case.

And no, my penis doesn't smell.  You might be sweating more.  There were no comments about this when my nodules were removed surgically.  It's scar tissue. I shouldn't smell like anything really.

Part 1:  The first year - recovering 1/2" girth lost to Peyronie's Disease (Round 1 & 2 Metacrill PMMA)
Part 2:  Things starting to go bad (I had nodules removed and excisions wouldn't heal)  (After Round 3)
Part 3: Resolving Round 3 problems caused entirely by USA doctors.
Part 4: All PMMA (from all 3 rounds) hardened 6-12 months after round 3.

I wouldn't say the pmma has a smell... But I would say that being circumcised, the pmma has caused what looks like foreskin / an overlap of where the circ scar is to the base of the head.... Hard to explain... But that area where it overlaps can develop a pretty potent musky smell if you don't clean it regularly.

Also, since my PMMA has greatly increased my flaccid penis size and reduced turtling, its susceptible more to general body odor. Since I have a huge flaccid dick pushed tight against my balls all day, it collects an odor from sweat and the such, making my package very musky when I use to not have any.

Yes, I think the tighter overlap allows a build up of bacteria etc. Especially if you're not used to washing like someone with an uncircumcised man.

Takes a bit of practice and upkeep.

Worth it though imho.

Thank you sizemic, jlmb and buttercups and resto. Your comments about the circ scar ridge needing to be cleaned make a lot of sense, same w the increased size causing more musk.

I'm convinced however that my dick has a different smell to it. And not in a good way. Even straight after a shower (after cleaning circ scar ridge with qtip/soap), I still have the odor after several minutes. When I take a piss, etc, every time I pull my junk out of my underwear I smell it. Particularly if I am sweating a lot, such as after a workout, etc. It actually quite closely resembles the description Darkstaff's Dr. gave to his PMMA when he removed it - 'it smells like kittylitter'.

I think my case might be slightly different from everyone else's. I had unique complications and so I have several large areas where ridiculously tight concentrations of PMMA beads have formed ROCK HARD tissue that is 1cm thick. So it's like a slab of cement. I think this concentration would cause the tissue to smell more than if it was normally dispersed. I think it could be a combination of unhealthy lymph drainage due to this, and effects how the sweat smells when it seeps through the skin.

Or something along those lines. What also sucks is that not only do I now have a smellier dick, but I also have a shorter flaccid due to PMMA and this rock hard mound I described earlier. PMMA is dispersed within the Dartos fascia, so a good portion of my Dartos is basically unstretchable and probably very unhealthy. I hope I don't have unique complications from this in the long term, but in all reality I might. How healthy could it be to have a portion of your Dartos permanently turned into a cement slab? As Gelman said, the Dartos is critical for circulation and lymph drainage.

I've also had 40cc's of 30%...more PMMA than most people here I'd say (lots of the vets, etc have recieved 10% and 20%). Restoration excluded.

Fuck my life...couldn't have asked for a poorer outcome, and I didn't even get good girth gains.

You're not imagining it.  I too have noticed a certain odiferous scent emulating from my nether regions.

There's a product out there that I'm going to order called "Chassis for Men".  It's not a talcum powder for the balls and dick, it's different.  Prevents moisture that causes smell.  I'm gonna give it a try soon.

Larger penile mass post-procedure results in more perspiration than pre-procedure. Bacteria that are naturally present on skin are more likely to produce odor in their metabolic processes with more perspiration.

@ArcticSky: That makes sense.  Thank you.

So I spoke with Dr. Alter and Dr. Gelman last week in person. And I asked them about this phenomenon I'm experiencing. I asked Dr. Gelman: Does PMMA smell weird? And he kinda laughed and said 'well, I wouldn't know, I wear a surgical mask and I'm not down there sniffing it"...was pretty funny.
But I asked Dr. Atler (great guy btw) "does PMMA have an odor to it?" and he immediately said "Yes, yes it does. When I'm in there cutting it has like a petrolium kind of a smell..."
I then told him that Darkstaff's doctor (Dr. Singh) who removed his said it smelled "like kittylitter", and Dr. Alter immediately agreed and was like "you know what? That's a very good analogy".
To be fair, when I told him I could smell it outside of my skin he said "I find that very hard to believe". But then I explained to him that it happens mostly every time I sweat or fail to take a shower after like 8 hours. I think it has something to do with the sweat coming out carrying some of that scent with it. Anyways, then the subject changed to more important matters like my super fucked up dick lol..

But there's that. Take it for what it's worth. Maybe my case is worse because:
- I got multiple full rounds of 30% (there aren't an excess of vets who did that, and also note that AstroD agrees with me about the smell and he also got full rounds of 30%).
- I have a unique rock hard super concentration of PMMA beads at my base...maybe having them super concentrated concentrates the smell as well.

Only thing I know for sure is that it's there. But I've found that it's kind of a good excuse to shower twice per day. To keep the area more hygenic. I'll invest in some DudeWipes (also reviewed by Alpha M), to give the area a quick wipedown before sex (after the bar or something) and like Sizemic said, the area behind my coronal ridge on the glans was FUCKED UP lol...not to gross anyone out but I swiped my finger behind it and then smelled it...one of the literal worst things ever. As a circumcized guy I'm just not used to having to clean that area, but Sizemic is on point. This advice should be on PMMA 101 for everyone because it's easy to miss and if a girl ever smelled or tasted that smegma, you're done. (lol smegma).
So I take a qtip with soap to that space once a day now too. BTW even with the cleaned coronal ridge, I still get the PMMA odor. Regardless, I think this new PMMA scent is manageable for me, or at least I hope so. I just hope it doesn't also have a taste to it, but it's kinda hard for me to figure that one out alone lol.

Now off to pump 20 more cc's of the stuff into my dick! Wish me luck fellas! [biggrin]

I also asked Dr. Gelman and Dr. Alter about possible long term complications with PMMA, especially in my case with that giant rock hard mound. To my suprise, both seemed rather underwhelmed with the possibilities of risks with PMMA. They didn't think PMMA was that big of a health risk. I even asked about potential corporal degeneration long term because of lack of vitality of the dartos. Both told me that could not happen, the Dartos has nothing to do with the corporal body's blood supply. The blood supply comes from within the corporal bodies. And Gelman told me that as long as the Dartos still has some blood supply and can drain your swelling(as it does now), it will be fine.

Both of them felt that PMMA was simply a cosmetically bad choice particularly when it goes wrong (like in my case and the cases of the other failures that they see, probably a lot from other clinics besides Avanti), but neither felt it presented any long term health risks. I think that's pretty good news from two of the best surgeons in the world.

That is good news for those who have had pmma, my penis also stinks and I've had MegaFill I carnt work out whether it's due to this partial circumcision or to the fact that my penis carnt sweat properly

I find it quite interesting that Gelman and Alter have said long term health risks of pmma are low, I wonder what the British Urologists would have to say about it (Eardley,Ralph e.t.c)
It would be great if all the worlds best urologists got together and did a study into the long term effects of pmma in the penis
Or scientists, if Urologists did one it would probably be biased
