Yes and so does every female, Smegma is particularly noticeable when it is formed under the male foreskin as it is among the labia and genital folds of the woman because skin particles are constantly being shed in addition to several other secretions that are produced by the mucous membrane in those areas. most men and women would hardly notice its presence as it simply rinses away with normal bathing. It would be less noticeable in circumcised men because anything produced would be rubbed of onto the underwear. smegma is a normal product of the body and is washed away from under the retractable foreskin, but remains perfectly harmless if under the non retractable foreskin.

Can smegma be sexually transmitted?

Smegma cannot be transmitted. It is normal to have smegma, and it isn't contagious, everyone (male or female) has smegma eventually, due to buildup. However, you can temporarily prevent it by rinsing it with warm water. Smegma is actually helpful, as it is a moisturizer. However, if there is too much buildup, it can harden and will be painful.

What is is smegma?

Generally, smegma is something most commonly associated with uncircumsized men that is a substance found under the foreskin. It is a white substance that varies from white and filmy to 'cheesy' and thick. Smegma has also been referred to as 'head cheese' or 'cheesy dick.' Smegma has an unpleasant odor, some have compared it to the smell of rotten fish. Smegma is nothing more than the build up of dead skin and secretions of the urethra and glans, as well as urine (and semen residue if the male is old enough and sexually active) deposits trapped under the foreskin. If anything it is a sign that the penis has not been washed... in a while. Smegma is the number one sign that an uncircumcised (uncut) male is not properly washing his penis. If the foreskin is not pulled back, exposing the head (glans) and washed with mild soap and warm water, the secretions will build up, trapped under the foreskin and resemble a thick cheese type appearance. If an uncircumcised man has good hygiene, bathes regularly and pulls back his foreskin and washes his penis properly smegma will not be present. Over the years smegma has been thought of as a 'constant' or 'standard' thing with all uncircumcised (uncut) males. That all men with foreskin have smegma. While this is not completely true, it's not completely false. A more accurate statement is that uncircumcised men are more likely to have smegma under their foreskin than men who are circumcised.
