Some people like it. Others find it downright disgusting. Semen. But what does it actually taste like and can you influence the taste of semen?
Dutch broadcaster BNN once did **cough** scientific research on it. Read: they made a fine-looking lady taste several tablespoons of sperm from different ‘donors’. And how did it turn out? A man’s eating habits affect the taste of sperm. Smoking, drinking, as well as eating asparagus are some of the things that make the taste of sperm bitter. But (sweet) fruits like pineapple, mango and even cucumber make semen sweeter and fresher. In short, if you want to predict without tasting whether you are better at spitting than swallowing, ask what the man in question’s living and eating habits are.
Why not swallow?
Many people wouldn’t think about it. Thus, everyone has his or her limits. Some find the very idea dirty. A bit like asking someone to suck out your nose. Also, some find it just too slutty or derogatory.
What can also play a role is that swallowing semen can be unsafe, because of the risk of STDs and HIV, for example. After all, swallowing sperm with a condom is impossible.
Fortunately, there are also people who actually find it exciting to swallow sperm. Not only does giving a blowjob sometimes give the sucking person a sense of power (after all, you have his noble parts between your teeth and you decide the pace), but swallowing semen is the ultimate way to show that you honour him.
Is semen healthy?
It could just be a ruse by men. Saying that semen is healthy to ensure that their partner swallows the semen more often. Yet it is true. There are many superfoods on the market such as chia seeds, coconut oil and wheatgrass, but male semen is also full of protein.
Semen contains the substance spermidine. This substance has a positive effect on the skin. Spermidine helps ‘to keep the face more youthful, as it stimulates cell renewal in the skin. It also keeps existing cells longer’. So concluded researchers from Austria’s Karl-Franzens University. So sperm keeps you young. Incidentally, you can also get a dose of spermidine by eating grapefruits or soya beans. Unfortunately, your partner does not depend on your goodies to keep looking good.
Moreover, a study at the State University of New York at Albany found that sperm can also act as an antidepressant. And it also contains zinc, calcium, potassium, fructose and protein.
Why do penis owners want you to swallow their sperm?
The penis owner likes the idea of you swallowing their sperm. But why really? Of course, first and foremost, it’s convenient. No mess. No tissues. Neat and tidy. This is especially handy if, for instance, you get a blow job from the secretary in your lunch break while wearing your expensive Boss suit. After all, you don’t want any stains in that!
But they find it especially horny because it is a very intimate act. Precisely because it goes (too) far for many partners, makes it extra exciting for him. If you do want to do it, it symbolises trust, true love or absolute surrender. It also has something porn-like, something naughty, something forbidden, something whorish.
But blowjobs in general, and swallowing in particular, can also be a form of submission that excites him. It gives him a sense of power. Everyone finds it horny again for a different reason.
How can you improve the taste of semen?
There are swallowers and spitters. Some people already find the idea of semen in their mouth gross. Unfortunately, there is little scientific research possible on the taste of semen (because, well, taste can be disputed). But if your partner cares about the taste of your semen, luckily you can do something about it:
- Eat lots of sweet and juicy fruit. Pineapple, oranges, mango, strawberry; it gives your sperm a sweet ‘aftertaste’
- Eat herbs like peppermint, parsley, cinnamon, nutmeg, celery and wheatgrass.
- Eating healthy and exercising a lot is good for the quality and quantity of your sperm
- Drink lots of water. If you are dehydrated, your sperm will be more concentrated, which provides flavour.
- Do not eat spicy and sharp foods (garlic, onion, sambal, chillies are not good for the taste of your sperm). Asparagus and Brussels sprouts also make your sperm a bit bitter.
- But smoking and alcohol are also not recommended for a nice quid. Also, do not drink coffee, eat little or no meat and avoid foods that are ‘over-processed’. These often contain chemicals.
- If you don’t want to eat health food, there are also drops on the market that improve the taste of your sperm, such as the Yummy Cum Drops.
Basically, the bottom line is that anything healthy and sweet is better than anything unhealthy or gives you bad breath. Start making changes to your diet a few days before oral sex. Don’t expect to taste like vanilla. At most, the taste will improve slightly. Furthermore, make sure you are washed anyway.
But whether your partner is willing to swallow your sperm, besides the spoke of your ejaculate, has mainly to do with horniness. After a steaming hot lovemaking session (during which you also enjoyed the taste of her vagina), your partner will be more willing to swallow your seed, than after a quickie that barely turned her on.
So don’t just throw your eating habits on the rocks, give her the time of her life and who knows, she might swallow your sperm without feeling like she’s overstepping her boundaries.
