Default Do women naturally smell worse than men?

Ordinarily in class no one sits next to me and if they do they're usually male, but aside from the rare disgusting fat male pig I never notice their scent. Recently by some odd fortune I've found women sitting next to me, and half the time I get an uncontrollable feeling of BLECH. And I don't think it's perfume. I know some women use really obnoxious perfume (a couple years ago it seemed like half of them smelled like Fruity Pebbles ) but this is just terrible. It's not quite B.O. or fecal smelling, but it's in the rough ballpark. Is this some hormonal thing?

Lots of them have sex shortly before class. I've seen the videos on the internet!
There could be anything on them.

Is this the closest a woman has ever been next to you? B/c obviously you have never touched one besides your mother.

No, it is because you touch yourself.

There's been scentless and good smelling women too. Ironically the one time a woman apologized for being sweaty and smelly after a workout I thought she did smell good. Of course, a few hours later without a shower that would not be the case, but that goes for anyone. I don't want to stereotype all women as smelly, but considering that most people think of dirty, greasy, hairy men and their own stench, I find it odd that my personal experience has been in the other direction.

I've met fifth graders with more personal experience than you.

You mean the little puddles of sweat that accumulate on plastic chair seats? I don't check that of others, but I do it. It always freaks me out because I think "Oh fuck, I bet it looks like I pissed my pants" but when I immediately go to the bathroom and check myself out in the mirrors there isn't the slightest bit of perspiration perceivable. And I smell like daisies.

Ah, the scent of a woman.

I've had the misfortune of sitting next to a stinky one in church. Took a discrete look at her an moved to a pew as far as possible.

A good looking co-worker just loves to douse herself with this certain perfume you could smell a mile away. I'd hit it.

WTF are you talking about?! I've left wet spots before, but that's after being thoroughly soaked doing manual labor in hot weather. What's your excuse? :^D

I'm a naturally sweaty bastard. If I'm doing work with my family outdoors, I'm the only one that's sweating and my face is absolutely drenched. I walk to the bookstore and as I look down at the counter I notice there are several drops of sweat on it. Walking between classes the entire back of my shirt is drenched. I don't get it.

If anything, men tend to be more noticeable smell wise (as in stench) than any woman I've been around.

If the woman smells like shit...turn her over. You have your nose in the wrong orifice...(or maybe you don't)
