The hygiene of the whole body is good for good health. The cleanliness of genitals is also highly recommended before going to bedroom for sexual union. Don’t wash genitals at once after sexual intercourse because that is harmful. However passing the urine and washing of genitals with warm water is suggested after the half of an hour of sexual intercourse.

Dear Peter,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.

Cleanliness is very important in sex.

1. Un hygienic practice can create aversion for sex

2. It can cause fungal infections

Hence better to clean with soap before and after the act.
