How to make your cum taste good

Getting your partner, lover or one-night stand to go down on you can be a dream come true, sure. And if you’re not confident about their sexual history, or if you’re carrying any STDs of your own, you should always wear a condom during any sort of sexual interaction.

But if you know it’s safe and want them to enjoy the blowjob as much as you did -or at least don’t hate every second of it-, you might want to think about improving the way your cum tastes when it fills their mouth.

So, how do you make your cum taste better? Is it even possible to control the way it smells or how sweet or salty it is? Read on to discover the answer to that and other questions!

First thing’s first: Do you know exactly what cum is?

Sure, we all know it when we see it. It’s a viscous, semi sheer, whitish substance that comes out of your penis when you reach an orgasm. That’s all fine and dandy, but what is it exactly?

You’d have to divide this concept into two separate categories:

  • Precum: It’s released previous to ejaculation, a mucus that is produced when a man experiences sexual arousal. This substance is usually not entirely flavorless, but hardly as intense as actual cum, so you might not have to worry too much about the way it tastes. The methods you use to change the way your sperm tastes, though, should also improve your precum.
  • It’s there to clean your urethra before an orgasm, as you both pee and cum from the same hole. As cum can be killed by the alkaline remains of urine, precum effectively washes it away, neutralizing the area so that your spermatozoids may survive.
  • Semen: this is what’s released when you reach an orgasm, an organic fluid that carries within it the spermatozoa. It’s stored in the gonads (your balls) and can impregnate a woman if they come into contact with their ovum.

So why does semen taste bad? (or does it?)

People have described cum in plenty of different ways. Everything from sweet to salty, to metallic, to pungent, to sour.

It all comes down to chemical compounds. Let’s be real for an instant: cum isn’t meant to taste good. It’s meant to be effective as a part of the reproductive system. So it won’t naturally be pleasant to the taste.

That can be changed, of course, with a few changes in your everyday life, but you’ll need to put some effort into it. If your partner is worth the hard work, there are several tips you can follow. Be patient, it might take a few weeks to actually see some change, and it’s probably better to keep the lines of communication open with your significant other, to make sure everything is going according to plan, so you know if you have to make adjustments as you go.

What should I avoid to make my cum taste good?

  • Alcohol: Alcohol doesn’t only affect your health, but also the way all your bodily fluids smell and taste, including your semen, urine and sweat. Of course we’re not saying you can’t have a beer or glass of wine with your dinner, but the smaller your alcohol intake, the less sour and bitter your cum will become.
  • Of course not all beverages will have the same effect on your sperm: Beer and wine won’t be as bad as hard liquor such as rum, vodka or gin.
  • Tobacco: If you’ve ever been around a heavy smoker, you have surely noticed they sweat with a certain odor, one different from non-smokers. Unfortunately, it can also affect the way your sperm tastes, so it’s a good idea to get rid of that habit, not only for your health, but also for your partner’s sake.
  • Coffee: It’s a big no-no, so it’s better to stick with tea or water. Sugar-free fruit drinks can also work wonders if you need a little pick-me-up.
  • Dairy: Milk and its derivatives produce a good amount of bacteria in your digestive system, which might be good in a balanced diet, but will not produce a pleasant-tasting ejaculation. Think avoid limiting your intake of yogurts, cheeses and butter, especially the days before getting oral sex.
  • Foods: Garlic, broccoli, onions, asparagroups, even processed food! This might be a bit of a struggle, but it goes a long way in making sure the taste is far more pleasant once those ingredients are off your regular meal plan
  • Exposing your testicles to heat: A trip to a hot tub or a climatized pool won’t change the equation, but if you are a frequent customer of saunas or other hot-temperature activities, you might want to reconsider. Not only can it lower your sperm count drastically, it can also affect its chemical balance. So if you expose yourself to intense heat often, then it’s time to think about a change in lifestyles. Your testicles should also be a few degrees colder than the rest of your body.

What makes cum taste better (or at least tolerable)?

  • Water, water, water: Remaining hydrated is a great way to ensure your cum doesn’t come out tasting too strong. It will help ‘water it down’ in a sense. Much like your pee is supposed to be almost colorless and without an unpleasant smell when you have enough liquid intake, your sperm reacts in a similar way. If your pee comes out a bright shade of yellow and smells to high heavens, it’s likely your cum will not be too pleasant either.
  • Foods: Parsley, cinnamon, pineapple, oranges, red fruits, nutmeg and celery. These ingredients are known to decrease the semen’s alkailinty and thus, making it less unpleasant to the taste. Since normally sperm has between 7.2 and 9.3 PH, including these ingredients into your meals might remove some of the bitterness from your cum, in the long run. Fruits are especially helpful, so make sure to add a few of them in every breakfast, lunch and dinner you enjoy from now on!
  • Bathe, trim your public hair and use lotions: It might sound obvious, but there are men who don’t equate keeping their private parts clean with the enjoyment of their partner when giving them oral sex. Make sure to use soap every day, use creams or powders to make sure they don’t get sweaty. Keeping your public hair trimmed is also a good idea.
  • Exercise: Making sure you remain fit and strong can greatly alter the way your body processes foods and drinks, and thus may enhance the way your cum tastes. Don’t give up after a week of jogging, though. This is a long-term process.

Will it ever taste delicious?

Unfortunately… no. It might be less unappealing, and there are women who enjoy its taste, but it’s mostly about the sexual arousal they get from it. The objective is to make it a less unpleasant experience so that both your lover and yourself can enjoy it, especially if you fancy her swallowing your swimmers.

Don’t bother drinking a glass of a sweet juice just before sex: it will have no effect! No liquid or food is absorbed that fast. You should think about implementing changes at least two days before getting head, but a week or two will produce the best results.

Don’t strive for perfection: cum was never meant to taste and smell heavenly to begin with. Enjoy your body’s natural scent, the way it tastes and feels like, and make adjustments to feel healthier. Sooner rather than later, you will see the desired effects.

Changing habits will also improve your sex drive in the long run, so go for it!
