i know that i have a big problem with the sweat issue i live in a country that has a very hot weather climate and i take the public transportation regularly i know that sounds silly but try being on a bus on a very hot day with people that do not put deo, now you understand me? how do you react to sweat? is it not a big issue for you? do you think that it is a sexy thing? how can you solve a situation that a person near you has a very bad smell on a hot summer day? would you approach him and tell him? and how?

Hi Liran, Great to see you back. How are you doing? I miss you greatly. Now coming to your discussion, India in no better than your place where the humidity touches the sky and it's very difficult to cope. No matter how much deo you wear the sweat gets over powering and it starts to smell worse. I do not like sweat at all, no one likes it. However, I do not think I would point out someone who is smelling badly. That's not me. I would rather avoid his/her company or bear it. Liran, you have raised another point in being sensuous with the sweat thing. I do feel that each one of us have our body odour (good or bad that's some different point altogether) and this enhances the sensuousness. The smell of a partner makes him so original and this could be an arousing factor. You have a great life ahead.

Liran, it must be terrible there in summer months. How do you cope with it dear? What about the schools and colleges? Do they give a long holiday?

Doe your bus have a c on it? I lived in Miami and boy did that jitney stink or people with no demo. Or the fact that many did not bathe. I find that sweat if a natural thing but,not adding anything to counter act the smell. Is Not good for the other passengers.

Hi Liran. Depends on the extent of the odor, some people are okay, some are down right offensive. For the offensive kind I tend to shallow breath until I leave their company. I think if I was often in that situation I would carry in my handbag some kind of natural perfume essence that I could put under my nose so it masked the smell. It would need to be a soft smell otherwise it would blow my head off. But you know what I mean.

sweat is a very nauseating smell for me, and I have a difficult time being around people who smell this way - I know some people just can not help it, but I also can not help the queeziness I get when near it. bad BAD breath does the same thing to me.

I sweat alot too, especially in the summer. I always use deodarant though. I don't want to stink and I sure do not want to be around someone who does smell of body odor. It stinks and it is uncalled for. they should carry deodarant with them and reapply it if it begins to wear off.

Thank G-d I live in a part of the States that has a hot summer but the rest of the year is not too hot.I use antiperspirant-deodorant so I don't smell when I sweat. With other people I don't bother them.I am spoiled. Here all our buses have air conditioning and heat.i guess I wouldn't last a day in Israel.Oh well.

We live in a tropical country, sweating or sweat is the one that I don't like the feel of. I always bring a hand towel with me, to wipe off the sweat all over my body. I also choose the public vehicles I ride, the one's with air-conditioning system in it since we don't have any car of our own. When I'm not busy or don't anything to do, I'll just relax and avoid moving too much so I don't have to sweat..

I think that some people don't take shower. It takes at least 14 hours to smell bad if sweating.... In age of good deodorants and soaps it is a shame to smell bad... I would never tell anyone other than close family about sweating small... It is not sexy for sure....
