I'm a new vegetarian and while doing research I came across the thought that vegetarians smell less when they sweat and also smell better, ummm "down there." <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"><br><br>
I've never even met another vegetarian much less dated one so I'm curious to hear ya'lls thoughts on this!

I dunno. There is also an urban myth about vegans be immune to mosquitos, which has not at all been born out by my life. I do find that vegetarian breath on average smells better.

Yes, my boyfriend ended up eating some cheese while he was away for 2 days a while ago and his breath smelled horrible to me when he came back. It lasted a few days and teeth brushing/gargling barely helped. Since then, he's vowed to never again eat cheese. (I'm vegan and he eats vegan 99.9% of the time.)

Interesting! Seriously about a week after giving up meat, I was outside doing yardwork around 7:30 pm, (when the mosquitos really come out to play around here), and didn't even get bit. I saw them approaching me but they didn't bite me. I had a meal made with a lot of garlic if I remember correctly.

I bottle my sweat and sell it at the local Neiman Marcus.

There are a lot of things we veg*ns like to think veg*nism makes us better at than omnis. I am usually rather skeptical of them, whether it's about intelligence or how easily wild animals approach us, or whatever.

Word. I've met just as many stupid, smelly veg*ns as stupid, smelly omnis. No one on this forum, of course <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I seem to smell a bit better than I did as an omni, but I don't know that it's that significant a change. I mean, I don't go around sniffing myself, but still...

And if you package it right and tell them it's what everybody else is wearing they'll buy it! :- )

Did ya'll read the link about the theory being tested on the Howard Stern show? I do believe I spit out some of my oatmeal when I read that!

I didn't read that link, but I can only imagine. Howard Stern creeps me out.

I remember that film, it might have been the Dirty Dozen, where they were going to fight in Asia, and they got an Asian chef to cook for them all for a few weeks before going, because they said that the Vietnamese could smell westerners....I think that was more to do with dairy though, than meat.

It would make sense that <i>vegans</i> smell better since the Japanese do regard Westerners as smelly like off dairy produce. Remove that and you're about a neutral as you can get I guess.

I'm finding I smell better when I sweat. I don't have a second opinion to confirm that though, lol.</div>

This is an easy fix. Just go sticking your armpit in unsuspecting victims' faces.
