Difficult to say without examination. Certainly the sweat glands harbor bacteria, so the odor emitted can vary from patient to patient.
Diet may play a role in the body odor. You can consider adjusting your diet, in conjunction with your physician, to systematically see if a specific food is leading to the odor.
Finally, there is the possibility of fecal incontinence - which definitely can lead to a fecal odor. Evaluation for this can include a lower endoscopy (i.e. colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy), or more specialized testing such as anorectal manometry or endorectal ultrasound.
These options can be discussed with your personal physician - or in conjunction with a gastroenterologist.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.

Perhaps you have some kind of boil or abscess that is trying to drain itself. The odor you describe could be pus, and the anal pressure you describe suggests some kind of growth, perhaps an infected hemorroid? I have the same problem coming from an abscess in my thigh, which I thought was just a fatty tumor. For the longest time I thought the odor was coming from my sexual organs! I would suggest visiting a proctologist.
thank you for your advice. i havent noticed or felt a boil or anything. if so am i supposed to feel it if its there? but i will definitely make an appointment with a proctoligst i never thought of that. it couldnt hurt. thanks again
It could be some kind of bacterial or fungal infection if they are coming from the anus and around your testicles.
This is not an uncommon problem amongst some people, myself included.

I have been deeling with a fecal odor forover 20 years ,,but on and off,it smells like I passed some real bad gass but I didnt,,its uncontrollable,,,,it would go away for a few years and come back for a few months,,I can call myself an expert on this matter,,I just got all my stool samples come in good from the lab,,and just had a colanoscopy and the doctor cant find anything wrong,,,its so bad and everyone can smell it at my job at times,,,I treid charchoal pills,,Psylliam,,pro-biotics,,,Flat-D charcoal pads,,,eating right foods,,,stopped drinking,,drink plenty of water,,,now I am using the tux alcohol pads and stick them in my rectall area and wipe real good in there cause my doc said there might be some bacteria hiding around my internal hemroids,,,,nothings working yet,,,does anyone know of a cure???can anyone give me some answers????
20years damn.buddy i feel for u its been happening too me for a 1 year and im going to get rid of it.
by the way what is your email.
Ive had it on and off for about 20 years,,,the last time I had this problem was like 5 years ago but it went away in a few months,I can go quite a few years without any problems and then it comes on like a ton of bricks,,but this is the longest I have had it for,,about one year also,,so where are you from Angel???I live in jersey,,,you said youre going to get rid of it????well please explain to me how youre going to do that????you can reach me at ***@****
let me back track on those comments,,the probiotics is clearing me up,,so I guess its just something in my diet that didnt agree with me,,eating lots of fiber foods helped,,,and a good healthy diet,,,when in excess drinking through my experience only brings an unhealthy digestive system,,all the times I had trouble with my digestive track is when I was drinking heavily,and doing alot of drugs didnt help much either,all my digestive problems started when I started doing both of those,,so I know it has to do with that,,in my case its giving youre body enough time to clense,,,good luck people,,,,
