A little salty. Slightly sweet. Bitter. Quite delicious. Disgusting. No, these are not the reactions for any food. In fact, this is how women and also men describe the taste of semen. So, how does semen actually taste and is there anything that you can do to improve its taste?
Well, the basic taste of semen is slightly salty and warm. Some people may describe it as tasteless and some may describe it as slightly sweeter. The semen of some men may be excessively salty and in the case of others it may be even bitter.
Keep in mind that semen is a cornucopia of various nutrients including fructose, sodium, protein, vitamins and various other trace minerals and nutrients. Why the taste of semen seems to differ from men to men is something that hasn’t been researched, so nothing can be said with confidence. However, men who seem to have experimented with what they put into their bodies have come to realize that different things have a different impact on their semen.
So, here are a few things that you can try out for yourself and see if it actually improves the taste of your semen.
1 – Drink lots of water
For sure, water is important. Keep in mind that the seminal fluid is composed mostly of water and if you don’t have enough of it, your ejaculate will be quite low in amount and may also not taste good. So, make sure to drink at least 8-10 glasses of water each day. It will not only remove the toxins in your body and make your semen taste better but it will also increase your semen volume making sex more pleasurable.
2 – Avoid caffeine
If you are drinking too much caffeine, it may not be a good idea for your semen. Keep in mind that the taste of semen is basically slightly salty, however, what you put into your body may make it temporarily bitter or sweeter. Caffeine is not going to make your ejaculate taste sweet. It will only make it taste bitter. So, avoid drinking caffeine at least before your next ejaculation and see the difference.
3 – Alcohol, cigarettes, and illegal drugs
All three of these have a negative effect on your overall health. So, how can your sexual health avoid being affected? These are known to make the semen taste bitter, so make sure to quit smoking and avoid illegal drugs. Alcohol may not have a negative effect on your sexual health if consumed in moderation but it may make your semen taste bitter. So, if you are planning on oral sex, avoid alcohol too.
4 – Avoid red meat and dairy products
It is believed that red meat makes semen taste much saltier than it actually is. This is probably why the semen of vegetarian men is considered to be much tastier than those who commonly eat non-vegetarian foods. So, avoid eating red meat and instead go for fish which is packed with essential fatty acid and may actually improve the taste.
Dairy products are also known to increase the saltiness of your semen. So, make sure to avoid it if you want to build up a little tastier semen in your body for your next sexual encounter.
5 – Other foods to avoid
Foods with high sulfur content such as cauliflower, cabbage and broccoli are also not good for the taste of your semen. Similarly, foods with strong and foul smell such as garlic may make your semen taste not very good. So, avoid consuming these foods. And if you are too fond of your fast food burgers, it may be time to rethink. All the chemical present in junk food is only going to make your semen taste bitter.
6 – Foods that make semen taste better
As mentioned above, nothing can be said for sure that certain foods may improve the taste of your semen. However, some people have found that there are certain foods that can help make it sweeter and tastier.
Cinnamon is especially recommended to make semen taste better. So, incorporate it in your regular diet. Another food that is considered to make it sweeter is pineapple juice. The juice is not only believed to improve the taste of your semen but is also considered to improve its smell. So, don’t forget to include pineapple juice in your diet.
Other foods that are known to make it sweeter and tastier include wheatgrass, parsley, lemon and peppermint. Basically, if you include foods high in natural sugars, your ejaculate is probably going to taste sweeter than usual. So, include plums, kiwis, blueberries and cranberries in your regular diet.
7 – Keep yourself healthy
A healthy body is more likely to produce good-tasting semen than a diseased body. So, get yourself a thorough physical checkup and get treated for any diagnosed or undiagnosed illness. If you are on any medications, these may also make it taste bitter. Now, you surely cannot compromise your health to improve the taste of your semen by stopping the medications, however, you surely can incorporate certain foods that may help reduce the bitterness in semen taste.
Keep in mind that these are all things that no studies have proven that these foods have an influence on the taste of your semen. So, just try out different foods and see what effect it has on your ejaculate yourself and also share your wisdom with others who may be interested!
