Male Masturbation/washing


But I'm think like if I don't want to smell like semen should I wash afterward?  Can people smell semen on me?

Yes, it is worth washing or showering after masturbating if you are going out and are worried that someone, especially a female, will smell semen on you.  Many males wear a condom while masturbating just so they don't have to worry about that.  Indeed, if you have fresh semen on yourself or your clothing, someone may be able to smell it.
