Picture this: you’re with your favorite person (maybe of all time, maybe of the moment — we don’t judge), and things are getting hot and heavy. Hands brush, clothes come off, mouths start doing their thing, and you begin to wonder, “Do I need deodorant?” 

Hey, it has happened to all of us. Maybe you couldn’t fit a shower in before your date, maybe this was a spur of the moment thing, or maybe when planning your date, the two of you looked at each other and said “this pickleball thing seems really popular right now.” Maybe you got your shower in and everything was great until you and company started getting a little acrobatic in bed. 

No matter how it happened (sometimes it just… happens), it’s not the end of the world. If you end up having the kind of sex that gives your skin that telltale sheen and leaves you breathless, chances are you’re not too worried about aromas before or during sex. Hitting the shower makes it all disappear anyway.

But what about us overthinkers? We don’t want to be stuck in our own heads during sex, we want to be present in the moment! So, what’s a girl to do about aroma worries? Your answer in three words: whole-body deodorant. 

“But I already have something I put on every day, so should I just use more?” What’s in this deodorant? “Should I change what kind I use?”

Let’s get address those thoughts.

Refreshing Your Lineup

Adding a whole-body deodorant to your routine has obvious perks, especially when it comes to sex. Products like these are made to target odor-causing bacteria  everywhere on your body, not just your underarms. Adding a whole-body deodorant to your existing routine is a good call if your go-to happens to only play well with underarms. Whole-body deodorants like No Funks Given are aluminum-free, fragrance-free and overall gentle enough for sensitive areas. 

Meet the Team

You pay special attention to what you put on and in  your body, that’s why we made sure to make a pH-balanced, microbiome-friendly deodorant that can last up to 24 hours. Jojoba seed oil helps keep your skin looking healthy and doesn’t clog pores. Plus, the ingredients can reduce redness and help skin stay healthy and firm. 

Benching Your Old All Star

Now, there might come a time when you should think about swapping out your regular deodorant for a whole-body one. Maybe you’re still Marie Kondo-ing your life and want to streamline your routine. Maybe your nose just doesn’t like any of the added fragrances most underarm deodorants have and you want to give something unscented a try. Whatever the reason, a whole-body deodorant can simplify things by covering all your bases. One product, whole body – done!

Adding a whole-body deodorant into your routine can be a smart move! Whether you add it to your existing lineup or make the switch completely, a head to toe, 24-hour odor control can help get you out of your head and back into bed. So check out No Funks Given for a surefire way to feel fresh, confident, and ready for spicy moments no matter when the mood strikes.
