The taste of semen

59
I was surprised when a few guys told me that they have sweet-tasting semen/cum. I've always known it to be tasteless or slightly salty. So I asked those guys how they knew that and whether they have tasted their own cum before. They would say their girlfriends told them so and they've never tasted their own cum. What makes them so sure their girlfriends were telling them the truth?

Perhaps the gals didn't mean it literally, i.e. "Your cum tastes sweet" = "I enjoyed swallowing it". Or maybe everyone's taste buds are different so what's tasteless to me may taste sweet to someone else. I envy the gals who think semen tastes sweet.

Two of my ex-partners claimed that they have sweet-tasting cum before we got involved. I challenged them to taste their own cum. It's not as disgusting as it sounds - it's just tasting, not swallowing. If I'm sporting enough to give them blow jobs they should be sporting enough to taste their cum, right? So anyway, they tasted it and concluded that it was tasteless.

There are theories that food can affect the taste of semen, e.g. it can be sweetened by eating lots of fruit, red meat can make the semen taste more acidic, alcohol or coffee can make semen more bitter, etc. I don't know how true these are and have never conducted any experiments. I think healthy semen would be tasteless or slightly salty and, most importantly, not give me a stomachache after swallowing it. (I once had really bad stomachache after swallowing. Although it was inconclusive as to whether the culprit was the semen or the food I ate, I really didn't think it was necessary to reach a conclusion by going back for seconds.)

If you have tasted semen, please let me know how it tastes like to you! Don't tell me what someone else told you. I'm not going to believe you if you've not tasted it yourself.

Yes ur right, I think the food does affect the taste of semen (from my own taste test experiences lol ) He ate lots of fruit n tasted slightly sweeter.

Interesting! I'll go test it out once I get a test subject. lol

for me it was kinda salty...

i would sportingly give u a blowjob too :)

Yu-Kym said...

It seems the guy should drink more water to make it less salty. Then again, I've not done experiments!

Give me a blowjob? Er... BJs can be done on guys not gals. But if you wana give someone a BJ I'm sure that can be arranged :D

I would want to try giving a gal a blowjob...

tallie said...

i ever taste ma own semen..sumtimes sweet sumtimes tasteless..i wonder y??

Yu-Kym said...

Hi tallie, seems it's because of your diet.

tallie said...

oic..so does dat means if i eat sweet stuff ma semen will taste sweet?

imthekingg said...

i tasted my semen before... it really depends on what u eat on that day....

Yu-Kym said...

How come I never had the good fortune of tasting sweet one?!
Actually I don't completely believe. One day when I get a test subject to experiment on I'll post my conclusions.

Justin said...

Hi Yu-Kym, I am not sure whether mine taste salty, or was it the mixture of both our juices. Always enjoy eating her or slurping up after ejaculating, another way of heightening her orgasm. Enjoy it very much to know she loves it. wow, makes me feel like doing now!

Don't believe what they said. All semen are tasteless but slightly towards alkaline. Unless U hv honey on yr wholebody b4 sex. I like that.....er...........good!!!!!!!!!!!

Good discussion.

Err... I swallowed my cum but i never feel disgusting at all. It is really unfair for boy to ask your girl swallowing your 'thing' before you try & taste yourself. FYI, for healthy reason, i even drink my own urine (if you study more about urine through internet or book, you wont feel i am bullshitting here)

I am gonna agree that the cum as you've mentioned is salty (told by my wife too). ^_^

Yu-Kym said...

Exactly! How can a guy refuse to taste his own cum and think every female who sticks his penis into her mouth should?

AP said...

Fair enough. Do u like it sweet, salty, sour, bitter or tasteless? Mine is kind of a little sweet/salty taste. Let u try if chance permits.

Anonymous said...

wonder why guys like gals to swallow thier cum ...
YW

Yu-Kym said...

I'm sure some gals but not all gals love swallowing.
AP, sorry to disappoint you but I have no particular urge to taste any1's cum!
YW, I also wonder why! Mayb it's the same as the obsession with penis, i.e. women don't care as much as they think we care.

Cool said...

Strong alkaline smell but practically tasteless..
Swallowing creates a special bond between the two.. It really clicks..
But 1st you have to overcome the fear of it to be "yucky" and be prepared to perform vice versa if you expect your parnter to swallow..

Yu-Kym said...

If guys find their own semen yucky then they shouldnt expect gals to swallow!

Anonymous said...

from my experience, if they didn't cum often, it tasted sweeter and if they did, it tasted saltish and alkaline.

and yes, i agree with cool, it creates a special bond with your partner.it can practically happen if you love your partner enought to enjoy swallowing it.

same as women, if we haven't orgasmed, it tasted sweeter and if we orgasmed, it's saltish.feedback from my man.u can too.:)

happy discovering!

Semen is tasteless. What makes it seemingly sweet or salty is the taste of pre-cum mixed together with cum when you ejaculate.

As posted by Yu-kym, the composition on semen (and sperm in it) is mostly acid and protein.

Sometimes, semen would be tasteless most of the time, but due to the presence of acid, it would be a bit salty.

The protein in the sperm will make it taste like raw fish.

Shaun said...

Miss Yu-Kym,
Wear a strap on, and get a bj from the guy who posted.

Thought you should be more versed in such matters. haha

I've tried this after i read an article and must mention that i'm a guy. Oh and i wasn't the one swallowing.

Test 1 - Usual diet and i love meat over vege during those days and she said its a little salty with quite a bad smell and she said the smell would last for quite some time even after she brush.

Test 2 - I had 3 days of vege+fruit blended with protein etc etc vitamins as part of detox programme and this time, she said its sweet and tasted and smelled alot better then previous, so you might want to give it a try ><

I read an article on Men's Health magazine saying that eating lots of watermelon regularly will artificially sweeten the semen. So, my girlfriend and I decided to experiment on that theory. I've tasted my own semen before prior to the test, even swallowing it. It tasted weird but acceptable. My girlfriend agreed and never mind taking cumshots in her mouth and swallowing it. So, I started taking a few slices of watermelon a day for 3 days and we tried to taste my semen. Result: Men's Health was right! My semen did taste a little sweeter. Perhaps it contains a little more vitamin C than usual. Don't take my word for it. Try it.

JAPB said...

I've always thought that they tasted slightly like egg yolk.

Anonymous said...

Just dont eat eggs, garlic and broccoli, as it affects the semen's taste badly. Eating plenty citrus fruits for the past 18 hours would give the semen some "natural" sugars and vitamin C that would add to its sweetened taste. But still, the taste of semen is still mostly bland :P

Semen is actually good for all the girls who allow their partners to shoot their sperms into their vagina. Those super juices will actually made them look younger and also good for their face complexion.

Yu-Kym said...

Semen is bad for your complexion. Read this:

semen couldnt be tasteless. ive tried on 8 men, it's all salty and some bitter. and there's 2 of them have the taste like coconut.. lol!!

Anonymous said...

I tasted my own semen and it is abit salty. It be a fusion of semen and urine. Im 19 and im a virgin. I think all my other friends are virgin too! Maybe I'll ask whether they want to do some semen tasting together lol!

Yu-Kym said...

lynnz, the more dehydrated they are the saltier it would be. Bitter ones sound unpleasant. I hate bittergourds. Coconut?! Interesting!

Anon, you tasted your own urine too?

Oh, i thought i was screwed one day when i wondered what my semen tasted like and actually tried it out of curiosity. Nice to see i'm not alone, for a period of time i thought i was becoming gay and freaked out T_T

Dear Miss Yu-Kym,
just to share this with u , food does affect the smell of sperm . A doctor once told me that if u consume too much meat , the smell of the sperm will be stronger. I do taste my sperm before and there is no such thing as 'sweet' sperm.

I dont understand whats in the thrill of getting your girl to swallowing semen or swallowing it yourself.

But for watever its worth to end this sick topic about what it tastes like, perhaps eating durian and then seeing if the semen tastes of the fruit would end this debate once and for all. Just dont ask me to taste the semen just because i suggested the durian.

Durian has a distinctive pungent and strong smell and taste. Its unmistakable to prove that you are what u eat!

Rockdude said...

i tasted mine when i cim my exgf and later she kissed me back and pump some cum in my mouth ... hmmm... kinky yeap :)

Liam said...

stumble to this.. but I would say the taste depends on what u eat is true. I have tasted mine own and the test is positive. you are what you eat. if you are someone who love acidic food like meat, coffee, it will taste a little bitter.. and if you like fruits and veg.. sweet it will be. but not very thou. as for salty.. That's just urine residue especially if you didn't wash properly after urine before bj.

I'm a life long student of nutrition and even the textual of blood will be effected by what you eat.

My 2 cents worth.

Actually, your point about a woman being willing to give a blowjob and allow a guy to cum in her mouth (and if she also awallows) should also expect the guy to be willing to taste his own cum is right. And that's how I have thought. On two occasions, I have tasted my own cum; once from the fingers of a friend and another from her mouth.

I would say it is slippery and rather like birdnest soup, salty to some extent.

have been married for over thirty years and have learned to swallow my husband's semen. This approach, after many years of practice is most enjoyable for us. His semen was definitely an acquired taste.

However, swallowing has increased the intimacy of our marriage and I feel nourished when I see the pleasure in his eyes and hear his soft, tender moans of enjoyment. Furthermore, there is no cleanup! I keep the glans of his penis towards the back of my throat when he ejaculates. Thus, his semen simply goes down my throat while I enjoy his manly attributes.

After his refractory period, we generally resume lovemaking as I am easily and multiply orgasmic. My husband is better able to maintain his erection during our continued lovemaking as he has less of an urge to ejaculate. There are many benefits to swallowing semen!

Although I personally find it distasteful to swallow semen when you are making love to your husband, I dont think it's such an extremely disgusting act especially when you both so enjoy it, especially you! keke So my congratulations!

But what may I ask are the many benefits of swallowing semen?

And why do you have to put his penis to the back of your throat before swallowing his semen?

And you being able to achieve multiple orgasms within a single session of love making, is that primarily due to your husband's expert love making or are you by nature more easily aroused? Which is the primary factor?

i will let my bf to cum in my mouth whenever i m on period. it's not disgusting as long as i m making love with the one i love or the one i m willing to make love with. it's tasteless and sometimes salty. swallowing cum is not a big deal as have get used to it.

I've tasted cum from 3 men. I was in a relationship with them at the time of course. Diet does affect the taste of their semen n I think smoking does too. It makes it bitter. Like really bitter. Akin to bitter gourd. Yucks! 2 of the guys' cum tasted sweet and coconutty most of the time though. Sometimes its tasteless or just mildly sweet n a little fishy. Im wondering whether those who think their partner's cum tasted salty is because their partner weren't vy clean when they got their BJs >.<

I Iove my husband and pray that he lives as long as I do. For 30 years, he has been a loving father to our children and our grandchildren. I want to live my life with him for as long as possible. I perform feliatio him because it is an intimate, healthy act and regular ejaculations are good for a man’s longevity.

Women, despite the dangers of childbearing, have been outliving men for centuries and continue to outlive them in most countries. Many men his age and situation seem to live with a sense of loneliness that is so different from us women. No longer raising children, he became somewhat disheartened with his life.

Well, to use the old expression, sometimes a woman has to “take the bull by the horns,” err…“balls.” I realized that good sex could be an antidote for his loneliness. A man can easily feel isolated, even from his wife. He needed to know that I am the person that he could be completely vulnerable with, and be totally accepted and non-judged.

I started performing fellatio on him spontaneously. Much to his and my delight, I found myself loving fellatio immensely, especially since I broke the “man code,” and discovered just how much his beautiful dick and balls are “wired” to his loving, tender heart.

We had a good steady sex life before, but fellatio was infrequent. My husband had always concentrated on his manly performance; cunnilingus, maintaining his erection, withholding his ejaculation until I was fully satiated. Yet, I was able to learn oral skills to rekindle an emotional expression from my man, gratefully resulting in a level of intimacy yet attained in our marriage. Even in his late fifties, my man ejaculates so hard that I can hardly swallow his semen. We are having fun again, and its a treat to love every inch of him…

Im a gay guy and ive given my bf a bj a few times and i actually really like the taste of his cum. Its the consistancy and texture of shampoo in my opinion, maybe a little less thick. It tastes like a salty and slightly sweet butter or something similar to that. Its not that bad. Plus knowing that it came from ur bf's... well... you know... makes it taste so much better!
