The man I've been seeing and I decided to move in together. We had dated for quite awhile and things were great. The sex was great and always very planned out. I knew we would go on a date and then have sex. Now that we are living together, it is different. It doesn't matter how sweaty, gross or unkempt I might be after a long day, he pounces on me and wants to do it. It seems like my being smelly is even better for him. It makes me really self-conscious. What should I do? I want him to be happy but I also don't want to gross him out.

Poor Josie! Her man even wants her when she's a mess! Teasing aside, good for you girl! It sounds like you have a little sex pig on your hands, and that's a great position to be in. That shows he's comfortable with you and is very into you. While there is a lot to be said for cleanliness, humans don't naturally smell of roses or cinnamon toast. Pheromones are released in our natural scents and sometimes something biological kicks in. There is even some evidence to back that up, and science is nothing to turn your nose up at! You may feel self-conscious, but if it doesn't bother him, you shouldn't let it bother you. Even Napoleon instructed Josephine not to wash, and she was a real-life empress! Enjoy yourselves and your little Pigpen of Inquity!
