Can eating different foods make semen taste better?
You’ve probably heard the rumour that pineapple can make someone’s semen taste nicer. So is there any truth in it? “Although there is no conclusive scientific evidence to prove this, it stands to reason that foods with a strong taste or smell will, in turn, affect the taste and smell of semen,” Dr Larkhani says.

“‘Strong-tasting vegetables like cauliflower, broccoli, garlic and caffeine may make semen taste or smell unpleasant. Whereas pineapple, oranges and other sweet fruits may make it taste sweeter. This is largely due to how the enzymes in the food break down and affect proteins, thus impacting on the smell and taste.This is highly subjective though, just as our tastes vary with food it’s logical that our tastes in semen does too.”
General practitioner Dr Diana Gall agrees, saying semen can have a bitter taste because it is an alkaline – and that this is why eating acidic foods like food could change the taste. “Although, you’d need to consume a lot of these foods to notice a change in the taste,” she adds.
“Being hydrated or dehydrated also has an effect on the taste of your semen, the more hydrated you are the milder the taste will be. Healthier diets are more likely to produce better tasting semen that’s less bitter.”
Apply Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is a natural alternative to a body cream that can make your dick feel moisturized and hydrated but also taste and smell great.
And although this won’t have an effect on how your sperm tastes, it can be a good solution for when you are receiving blowjobs and want your partner to have a sweet taste in their mouth to mask the taste of sperm.

Why does your vagina taste like it does?
Many different factors contribute to the way your vagina tastes: your sweat, the breathability of your underwear, the laundry detergent you use, how clean you keep things down there, and what you eat. Where you are in your menstrual cycle matters, too. When you have your period, the iron in your menstrual blood will make your vagina taste more metallic, while during ovulation you’re likely to have a bit of a musky taste and scent.
Of course, good hygiene is just a matter of sexual etiquette, but if you have a hunch that your partner would rather slurp down a foie gras smoothie than perform oral sex on you, you might want to try modifying your diet to see if that changes thing up.
Opt For a Cleaner Diet
Some foods that have reportedly yielded some positive results in making your cum taste better are fruits such as melon, celery, lettuce, zucchini, and cucumber, which contain over 95% water and are excellent for overall hydration.
Additionally, many people also report positive results and a better-tasting spunk when a man eats fruit such as pineapple, papaya, and oranges.
You might think that this makes semen taste better because of the sugar, but some people suspect it’s more a response to the chemical and enzymatic effect that fruit has while being digested.
Moreover, you can also spice up your regular meals with natural food additives that may help improve how your cum tastes, such as parsley, wheatgrass, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Lastly, opt for an overall cleaner diet that consists of clean meat such as chicken and fish, especially salmon, mackerel, and trout, which are good sources of omega-3s, protein, potassium, and vitamin D.
I know, I’ve already mentioned eating pineapples and berries, and avoid alcohol, drugs, and smoking, but if you want really want your cum to taste good, you have to clean up your diet.
“Bad” foods like hot dogs and hamburgers aren’t bad just because they lack nutritional value, they’re also bad because they’re chock full of nasty chemicals. Seriously, next time you’re at the grocery store, look at the ingredients list on the hot dog package. I bet you can’t pronounce all of them!
All of these chemicals pass through your body and exit via your cum. Do you really think you can convince your woman to swallow all the gross preservatives used in hot dogs?
Another benefit of eating clean is that your erection quality will improve. Many of the foods mentioned above are prone to causing erectile dysfunction.
So, cleaning up your diet is a win-win. Your cum will taste better, and you’ll have better erections.
What foods should you avoid, and which should you eat? Great question.
Good: berries, fruits, vegetables, fish, lean meats. The complete list can be found here.
Bad: fried foods, fast foods, olives, garlic, asparagus, frozen foods, eggs, dairy, milk.
To take your diet to the next level – add cinnamon in.
5 Foods To Eat That Make Your Vagina Taste and Smell Better for Oral Sex
1. Pineapple or Pineapple Juice
The vagina is acidic. Eating pineapple or drinking pineapple juice, as well as other citrus fruits like oranges or grapefruit, helps to balance its delicate pH balance and add a bit of sweetness to those secretions.
The pH balance of semen is alkaline, so eating acidic fruits will help make it taste sweeter. Because pineapple has more acidity than other citrus fruits, it works the best out of all of them.
Cinnamon, which is an alkaline spice, neutralizes the acidic taste of the vagina. It’s also mildly antibiotic, and there’s some evidence that it can help treat an active yeast infection. Better vaginal balance means better taste.
There’s a popular myth going around that goes like this: if a guy eats cinnamon, his semen will taste like cinnamon. This is true, to an extent. It won’t make semen taste like cinnamon gum, but people says it sweetens the taste. Hey, it works for your breath, right?
Don’t like cinnamon? Cardamom, peppermint, or lemon are also believed to do the trick.
Because celery is high in water and Vitamin C, it works wonders to reduce any bitter taste the vagina may have. Vitamin C is very effective in restoring the ecology of vaginal bacteria and promoting the growth of healthy flora.
That said, if your smell or taste seem really off, drop the celery stick, skip the oral and head to the doctor, as that can mean infection.
Celery, as well as parsley and wheatgrass, has a high chlorophyll content. That’s believed to help sweeten the taste of semen along with just about anything else that grows and doesn’t stink.
Yogurt must contain active live cultures to neutralize the taste of the vagina.
Eating one four-ounce serving of yogurt a day helps add probiotics to the body and maintain a healthy balance of good bacteria in your nether regions. That means minimal taste and odor, not to mention better health.
On the flip side, research suggests men should avoid yogurt. It may work well for the ladies, but yogurt and other dairy products are said to negatively affect the taste of semen. A study out of Harvard University also found that high consumption of high-fat dairy products can reduce sperm quality.
5. Cranberries or Cranberry Juice
Cranberry juice naturally counters bacteria in the urinary tract system. It also helps keep pH levels balanced, which is good for keeping things from getting funky down below.
Cranberry juice increases the body’s acidity, which helps balance the alkalinity of semen. As a result, eating cranberries can reduce the saltiness of semen and sweeten it a bit.
While the foods listed above may help your vagina taste or smell better, there are others that can make It taste or smell worse.
So, what does cum actually taste like?
Depending on several factors, including diet, hydration, and the concentrations of each component, the taste of both male and female ejaculate can vary loads. That said, taste is largely dependent on flavor and texture.
Generally, the texture of semen is that of a viscous fluid. In reference to its viscosity, semen can be described as anything from “slightly watery” to “creamy” to “thick”. The amount of protein present and the frequency of ejaculation demonstrate a fair amount of sway over viscosity in male ejaculate.
According to Ken Saladin, a distinguished professor of biology and author of Anatomy & Physiology: The Unity of Form and Function, semen will be thicker if there is more protein in it or if ejaculation is less frequent. Conversely, if there is less protein present or the person ejaculating has already done so recently, it will likely be thinner. But these aren’t the only variables at play.
The viscosity of semen is subject to change for many reasons. Alterations can occur due to food and fluid intake, as well as sexual and physical activity. Changes can even take place after certain medical procedures.
Vasectomy, for instance, is a medical procedure performed with the goal of preventing the sperm from reaching the urethra. The urethra is the anatomical pathway the semen takes to leave the body. The result of a vasectomy is that there is little to no chance of sperm being present during ejaculation. (We say “little to no” because as far as contraception goes, vasectomy has a failure rate of 0.15%.)
According to a study on the effects of vasectomy on semen, after a person undergoes a vasectomy, their semen’s viscosity decreases. The lower the viscosity, the thinner the ejaculate.
The study also found that undergoing vasectomy produced a slightly lower pH (making the ejaculate slightly less basic—and no, we don’t mean it gave up on Starbucks…). However, the change in the volume of ejaculate was not found to be significant. This is because, as previously mentioned, sperm only accounts for 2-5% of the total emission. With 95-98% of the volume still present, that miniscule decrease would only be noticeable to someone holding a test tube, which (probably) is not the situation in your bedroom.
So, obviously the viscosity (and therefore the texture) of male ejaculate can fluctuate wildly. But, if we had to draw a comparison (for texture only), we’d have to say it’s along the lines of heavy cream, liquid icing, or crepe batter. Yum! Female ejaculate can have varying consistencies, as well, and is best described as a milky liquid.
In the realm of flavor, the fructose in both male and female ejaculatory fluid can impart a very mild sweetness. This sweetness can sometimes be more pronounced depending on the concentration of fructose and, also, glucose (the other sugar present in these fluids). But this doesn’t mean all ejaculate is sweet—everybody is different, and it is totally possible (and normal) to have a saltier, muskier, or even tart taste. Remember, the amounts of sugar are not gargantuan, so any flavor imparted is going to be minimal. In other words, while the sugar may lend a pleasant taste, you won’t feel like you’ve been pelted with Skittles.
In male ejaculate, the electrolytes—particularly sodium—can render a somewhat salty flavor. This is normal and somewhat expected. In fact, saltiness is so prevalent, it’s one of the most common flavors associated with semen. Female ejaculate, on the other hand, is less frequently represented as being salty.
Due to the alkaline (or “basic”) nature of semen, it is not unheard of for male ejaculate to possess a bitter flavor. Interestingly, individuals with a history of vasectomy produce semen with a more muted flavor. This make sense, because in the aforementioned study on vasectomy, the pH of the semen prior to surgery was higher (more alkaline) and the pH of the post-procedure semen was lower, closer to 7. On a pH scale, 7 is the number representing “neutral”. Therefore, semen with a neutral pH tends to have a more “neutral” flavor. Female ejaculate can also sometimes have a bitter taste, though the reason for this is not as well-documented in the literature.
Male ejaculate has occasionally been referred to as “bleachy”—that is, smelling or tasting a bit like bleach. While a chemical taste might seem alarming at first, it helps to remember that bleach actually has a pretty high pH. On the acid-base scale, it’s about a 13, meaning it’s definitely alkaline. Recall that semen is also alkaline. This is partly due to its many alkaline components (calcium, magnesium, and zinc, to name a few). That alkalinity is actually where this quirky scent and taste come from. It isn’t a bad taste, per se. Let’s just say, it can leave your mouth feeling very clean after you’ve done the dirty!
