Unless you manage to give yourself a bacterial infections from mastrubating -- which canhappen if you have unwashed hands, or you're using toys or objects which cannot be covered with a condom or cleaned properly -- masturbation isn't going to have a thing to do with the scent of your vulva or vagina.

And a fishy, metallic smell is usally a sign of infection. So, if you've got that going, see your gynecologist and find out what's up: could be a yeast or bacterial infection due to a basic imbalance, or if you're sexually active, an STI.

If there is a smell but it isn't offensive like a strong tuna-ish smell, don't worry that's just your "scent". Women have a natural smell--it's just how we are.
