If we’re honest, it can be awkward to stare “it” in the face when you first meet. But it’s best to get a really good look at what a man is working with before you get too close and engage in anything with a guy. We know you’re just thinking about size (hey #EggplantFriday) but sometimes there’s far more going on down there than meets the natural, distanced eye, especially if you see or smell the following things…

There’s Something Funky

If it smells “off,” he could have an infection that’s really easy to share. Don’t just assume it’s just a case of sweaty balls, though it certainly wouldn’t hurt if your boo hopped in the shower before you got intimate. If an odor remains even after a good lather, do not pass go or collect anything he might be carrying. It’s time for a conversation and a trip to the doctor.

Stains On His Underwear

If they’re light in color, it could be chlamydia.

The Boys Look Really Big

Noticeably swollen testicles are another chlamydia warning sign you shouldn’t ignore.

There’s A Drip

Do you notice something coming from there that’s a different kind of white? Never ignore it. You could be looking at one of the tell-tale warning signs of a number of sexually transmitted infections.

A Yeasty Smell

Men can get yeast infections too, and such a smell is one of the signs.

It’s Red

The penis of a man of a lighter complexion can turn red or even purple when engorged with blood, and that’s all perfectly natural. But if the skin looks red, raw and chafed, he might be battling an infection that he should get checked ASAP.

There’s A Bumpy Situation

Some bumps are benign, and some aren’t, but all bumps are cause for concern. You should probably ask a question about any unidentified bumps before taking part in anything sexual with him.

Brown Or Black Spots

This could be normal skin discoloration — or a symptom of genital warts.

Is That Green?

Green discharge in his underwear or near the head is a tell-tale sign of gonorrhea.
