Scented Balls

Before the huge White Nights party at the Vert Anglais last night (celebrating the birthday of the elder half of Woody Allen Film Reference and the one year anniversary of the bar itself) an odd discussion started.

One of the dudes mentioned that he sprayed cologne on his balls every morning when he got out of the shower. The other dudes there were stunned. Doing that had never occured to us.

"Doesn't that sting," The Iceman asked.

"It did the first couple of times," Scented Ball Man said. "But then it gets to be like leather and it doesn't hurt."

Even the girls who were around us seemed stunned - as they all said they'd never in their lives encountered balls that smelled like Yves St. Laurent. Several said that they'd be kind of grossed out.

"You are supposed to smell cologne, not take it into your mouth," one girl said.

Yet, Scented Ball Man assured us that this is fairly common. So, in the interests of science we asked all of the other dudes who came to the party about their ball flavor.

Most said that they did nothing but wash their balls. One dude said he put "Black Panther Scented Talcum Powder" on his balls every morning. Another guy said "Yeah, I put cologne on my balls but only if I have a date."

So, now, gentle readers, I'm putting the question to you:

1. If you are a dude have you ever scented your balls? If so, did it sting?

2. If you are a babe, have you ever encountered scented balls? If so, did you like it?

The Drunk Ex Pat Writer wants to know - on the QT and very, very hush hush.
