Hello eituc,

Welcome to HCM.

If you both are not having any other problem than you must not afraid of it.
Every person has some specific smell of their body as well as of their genital.
When two people do sex together than their body bacteria get exchanged who causes smell and so both of you get same smell on both's body genitals.

Don't worry.
Go ahead and enjoy sex.

It is possible the foul smell can be due to infection or poor hygiene. Is there any burning sensation on passing urine, pain in penis and vagina. Sometimes yeast or thrush infection of the penis can be a cause of such problem. It is advisable that both of you get tested for possible infection. Eat healthy food, exercise daily, drink plenty of water to prevent urinary infection. Consult your Doctor in this regard for proper diagnosis and management.

I hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries.
