question regarding semen
Perhaps this question will sound really stupid, but it is something that I don't know.
What happens with the semen after sex? Is it absorbed by our bodies, or does it leak out? I am still a virgin and wondering about this. I would also like to know if it is true that after sex the vagina can have a funny smell.

Some of it leaks out and the rest is absorbed. Semen has a starnge smell and after intercourse this smell can linger.
