As someone who frequently writes about blow jobs, I have come to learn a lot about the mysterious bodily fluid known as semen. I know it’s not a super common topic, but if you’re someone who is in frequent contact with a penis, odds are you will encounter semen at some point, and when you encounter it you might notice a particular, uh, taste. Not to get too science-y here, but semen is made up of sperm, vitamins, hormones, minerals, fructose, and proteins, which could cause a sour or “metallic” taste. And if you’re someone who is frequently tasting semen (no judgment here!) that sour taste can get… kind of gross.
If you didn’t know, changing your diet can actually (sort of) change how your vagina tastes. It’s more or less the same with semen. Certain foods can alter what semen tastes like, which could actually make a huge difference. Now, before you go forcing your bae to drink a gallon of pineapple juice, you should know that there is no “miracle food” that will make semen taste amazing. There are just some foods that some people swear make bodily fluids taste better, and I’m going to help you out by giving you a list of things that will make semen taste better, so next time you’re goin’ down on your BF, you don’t have to suffer too much with the sour taste of semen. Good luck!
A Lot Of WaterThe number one thing your bae/BF/hookup can do to make their semen taste better is to drink a lot of water. Semen is mostly water anyway, and if your partner is increasing their water intake, it could help make their semen seem a lot "cleaner" AKA not taste gross. It makes sense, if you think about it. All of the water helps flush out toxins in the body. Image Source: iStock
Plenty Of VeggiesThis seems like a no-brainer, but if your BF eats nothing but fried food and candy all day, odds are good that his semen will taste...bad. Supposedly, vegetarians and vegans have better tasting semen. It actually does make sense, since greens have a lot of water in them. So you should encourage bae to eat his vegetables for "cleaner" tasting semen. Image Source: iStock
SpicesOkay, this sounds weird, but some girls swear that certain spices like cinnamon and peppermint make semen taste "amazing." It might be worth a shot to mention to your bae! Image Source: iStock
Natural SugarsAny type of food with "natural sugars" AKA fruit like kiwis, blueberries and, you guess it, pineapple, will make bae's semen taste less salty and more sweet. Let your BF know that having something small like fruit can actually make a huge difference for you! Image Source: iStock
Have Bae Avoid DairyYou can't really tell your BF not to eat ice cream all the time, but it might be worth noting that certain dairy products might actually make semen taste super salty, which isn't the most amazing flavor out there. You might want to let your BF know that! Obviously, he doesn't have to switch his diet according to you, but it's at least good for him to know. Image Source: iStock
And AsparagusAs you probably know, asparagus makes your pee smell bad, and can also have the same effect on semen. If you notice your bae cooking up some asparagus, maybe you should give him a gentle reminder that you will *not* be giving him a blow job that night. Image Source: iStock
Try Flavored LubeSince you can't really control your bae's diet, it might be a good idea to try some flavored lube instead of trying to force him to eat something or not eat something. This way, you get to pick what flavor your want to taste, and he doesn't have to eat anything he doesn't want to. Flavored Lube, $9.99
