Thanks for your query to XXXXXXX
Your problem pertains to apocrine sweat, which is felt at the armpits and groin. This is called as scent glands and is useful in animals to attract the other sex. In humans, it has become unimportant. However, still the secretion looks like oily and has a smell. Obviously, it is from you and not transmitted through sex. To reduce this you may use some deodorant stick and anti septic soaps.
Relax, this is not a STD.
