vaginas generally have their own 'odor' due to the specific persons diet and lifestyle (ie: what you eat, drink, smoking and drugs can affect this) but its not normal if it smells particularly odd or 'fishy'. it could mean an infection of some sort or an STD. **edit...i wanted to add, as well, that body washes and scented soaps certainly do not cleanse you that well down there. use a form of antibacterial soap to clean your genetalia and wash regularly to avoid pungent smells from not washing correctly. :) X3
