    Imagine my horror when, after Jaws, the mama kitty who gave me cat scratch fever, was sprayed full-on her face between her eyes, and I had to repeatedly bathe her (she was nursing her babies under my bed because I'd just brought them in from the garage in the fall) - tomato juice, lemon juice, soap, etc., do not work on skunk spray..., and the vet recommended feminine deodorant spray....  I bought a spray canister, wondered how the hell I was going to get it on her because I didn't want to spray her eyes.  I sprayed it on my hand then rubbed it into her head where I had seen the skunk spray her face.

    Y'know what?

    "Feminine deodorant spray" actually takes skunk smell away..., only for about five minutes, but it actually works for a brief time.

    The spray has one of those icky chemical scents like those ugly perfume odors that linger in the air like skunk spray, only they're worse because they give me a headache and other symptoms that chemical sensitivities do that are highly unpleasant, and I can't tolerate them.

    Skunk spray is awful, but it's bearable, and it goes away.

    Chemical scents..., not so much.

    [Myself and several family members have really sensitive auto-immune systems, and chemical scents are one of our sensitivities and/or allergies.  They also set my asthmatic mother off on coughing jags, particularly after she also developed emphysema.  We couldn't go in store aisles with artificial scents without her coughing so bad I was sure she was going to die on the spot.  She died in 1994.]

    Point being, do women smell worse than skunks "down there" that we have to artificially change our own body smell to be looked upon favorably by men/boys - since I notice teenage girls are the ones who are susceptible to the marketing of chemical perfumes more than mature women?  [Have men ever smelled themselves "down there" if they are uncircumcised and build up smegma for lack of bathing...?  Ugggghhhhh!]

    Why would men find chemical stenches on women more pleasant than natural body odors?

    What's wrong with being nice and clean and neutral-smelling (no perfumes of any kind) as the result of soap and water from showering or bathing when there's practically no odor down there except a person's natural smell after thorough bathing?  We each have our own smell, if we can get away from ugly chemical stenches of all kinds to appreciate that fact, and nothing is sexier than clean sweat from making love right after a shower or bath.  [Old, ugly sweat - No!  Clean sweat = good for a few hours, then a shower/bathing is necessary again.]

    Lysol?  Don't know about anyone else, but it was a respiratory irritant when I was a child and I've never been able to stand the smell of it.  I wouldn't ever get that crap near my sensitive lady parts...!!!  The pain must be incredible, not to mention the ugly smell that's a respiratory irritant...!!!

    I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
