"Analogous to tears, smegma is the compilation of secretions by ectopic sebaceous glands located in the prepuce, the seminal secretions of the Cowper's gland and the prostate, the mucin content of the secretions of the urethral glands, and the sloughed epithelial cells. It provides the necessary mucosal lubricant and moisturizer and is rich in sexual pheromones. The prepuce normally prevents detection of this phenomenally charged scent until the glans is exposed at the time erection takes place." - Robert S. Van Howe, MD

"Smegma is probably the most misunderstood, most unjustifiably maligned substance in nature. Smegma is clean, not dirty, and is beneficial and necessary. It moisturizes the glans and keeps it smooth, soft, and supple. Its antibacterial and antiviral properties keep the penis clean and healthy. All mammals produce smegma." - Thomas J. Ritter, MD
"Is smegma useful? Yes, certainly. It lubricates the cavity between the foreskin of the penis and the glans, thus allows smooth movement between them during intercourse ... Nature has ... provided a natural ointment, smegma, to ensure easy lubrication and protect this delicate region of the male genital organ. / To secure its even distribution, smegma is formed from the whole inner surface of the foreskin cavity ... Smegma production ... is concentrated in the cells of innumerable small prominences, minute microscopic protrusions of various shapes and sizes found on the inner surface of the foreskin cavity ... Sexual intercourse becomes a regular feature of life (in adulthood) and the function of smegma assumes its full value ... Freshly formed smegma ... is a wholesome lubricant--making for ease in erection and smoothness in sexual intercourse." - Joyce Wright, MD

Foul cheese like buildup that comes from not washing or properly maintaining equipment. It comes from NOT WASHING YOUR DISGUSTING TWAT/COCK! See egg salad.

A term which can be referred to as the cheesy substance caused from sweating of the gland. More common with people who have a foreskin or skanky dirty bastards that don't wash.
"I went to take a piss the other day and because I hadn't washed in a while my dick smelt cheesy."

A foul-smelling, cheese-like, sabacious secretion that collects under the foreskin or around the clitoris.

In other words, twat rot.
I would've banged out Kelly - bitch had bad smegma.

A formidable cheese-like residue that builds up between the foreskin and the penis resulting from lack of personal hygiene around the groinal crotchable area.

Side note: While smegma may be reminiscent of a domestic cheese, ball sweat smells like mayonnaise!
Smegma may taste like pumpkin pie, but I'd never know 'cuz I'd never eat the mutha' fucka'.
