Here are some ...: Doubtlessly, semen odor is related with its certain protein and fats. Since a concern on its odor has been personally unique and not clinically related, there has been no known study to identify a specific component causing "bad" smell. Also, remember: the odor of semen per se and the sense of smell to semen are unique and personal, and usually carries no significant clinical concern.
