Not related, but...: Wash your genital area after masturbating if the smell is most noticeable afterwards and change undergarments if you leak afterwards.

Not likely: Masturbation isn't the cause of your body odor, unless you're so buy playing that you don't have time to bathe or perform routine cleansing of your body. It may be that you have a poor self image. Improve your cleanliness, appearance, self-image, etc. And find a girl friend. From experience, i can tell you it's a lot better.

Dr. Proffitt has given you good advice. If you can do this, you're probably a teen -- and you have many other things you need to be doing during these special years. If this is an obsession, please talk with your physician. And I admire your courage in what must be a challenging question.
