Penile discharge can vary a lot: It can be thin, thick and a range of colors from clear to white, yellow, or tinted with blood. It can be hardly noticeable or impossible to ignore. It can be odorless or have an unpleasant odor.

Ejaculate is a white, cloudy, gooey substance that comes out of the tip of the penis when a man reaches orgasm.
