Do We Really Want a Deodorant That Rids Manscent?

That guy’s pits you love smelling may be less sexy if he starts using a new class of deodorants.

Ah, summer – the smell of barbecues, wild flowers – and hot AF manscent! Yep, that’s right boys. This is the time of year when you can really get a good whiff of that yummy stud a few feet away with delicious BO.

With warmer temps, it’s to be expected, right?

But here’s the sucky thing. In the future, your nose may not be able to pick up on his BO if he starts using a new class of deodorants that targets the bacteria that causes manscent.

Scientists at the University of New York and the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom are developing a deodorant with the goal of making a guy’s (un)pleasant pit smells a thing of the past, as reported in Digital Trends.

And that’s a darn shame, don’t you think?

Obviously, the smell of a guy’s pits is an acquired taste. Some men really love it while others find it nauseating. But according to science, manscent acts as a kind of aerial Viagra from some dudes.

Now obviously, it will be the guy’s choice to put on one of these new types of deodorants. But wow – we would we hate to see any products that make it more difficult to pick up on the waft of rugged, manly, delectable body odor.

And you have to ask yourself if they are going to develop certain types of body washes that will do the same thing? If that happens, we’re manscent lovers everywhere are going to be screwed.

Maybe the best we can hope for is that some guys will opt to use fragrance free products – or that scientists will develop a deodorant that encourages manscent for those who really dig it.

We know there already exists a body wash that (sort of) does this. Oh well, it is what it is. We’re hoping we can keep the amazing scent of pits around for a few more summers.
