The Many Tastes of Cum: Straight from Women’s Mouths

what does cum taste like

Pun very much intended. What does cum taste like? Ever wondered what cum tastes like for others? Read what these ladies *and guys* have to say about it.

Let’s admit that most people don’t know what cum tastes like exactly, since some are a bit iffy on the whole swallowing conundrum. Obviously, it doesn’t have much of a smell, but its taste varies from person to person, depending on their bodies’ chemical makeup. Aside from that, it can also be determined by what a person eats.

Semen is not really designed for consumption, nor is it recommended as a beauty staple as perpetrated by urban legend. Yes, some people have tried using it as an alternative for moisturizer, but is it really that easy to acquire?

Well, anyhow, this is not about semen’s benefits as a beauty product. This article is about what it tastes like for different people from all walks of life. And where else can you find a collection of surprising and interesting input about the taste of semen? Reddit.

With that being said, here are the best testimonies we’ve found on what cum tastes like. Read on and enjoy.

The foodie commentary:

Since we’re discussing the taste of cum, it’s no surprise that it’s mostly compared to food and other, erm, food types?

“If you eat a lot of meat and junk food, your cum will taste hideous. On the other hand, I gave head to this one guy who lived next to a Dairy Queen *and ate a lot of ice cream* and OMG, was it good!”

“Butter vs. gasoline.”

“Salty yogurt?”

“I personally think it tastes like egg whites that are really salty.”

“For some reason, I always associate the taste with oysters. I’ve only ever had oysters once though… So I might be wrong.”

“It has kind of a tart bite, like pepper; it makes my tongue a little numb. Sort of a salty aftertaste, like tears. It’s really not bad at all; once you get used to the suddenness of it, it’s pretty easy to deal with.”


“Warm salsa makes it sound way worse. I would only be able to imagine that it’s chunky and burns.”

“Kinda like fish. Kinda.”

“A-1 steak sauce.”

“Maple. Yum.”

“It tastes exactly like Brie cheese smells.”

“Lemon rice soup.”

“Coconut water.”

“Salty cucumbers.”

“Hershey’s chocolate syrup.”

The unprecedented theories:

“I’ve found that the hotter the guy, the better it tastes…”

“Ever smelled a Callery pear tree?”

“Smells and tastes like spa water.”

“Like heaven.”

“Deep fried mushrooms covered in dish soap.”

“Sometimes it’s tangy, but in a good way. If I use flavored lube, it often tastes like the lube, which is a bonus.”

“To me, it tasted like snot.”

“For me, beer makes cum taste foul. I will retch and gag that gunk all over his pubes.”

The apathetic:

“Tried mine a few days ago on a whim. It’s really not that exciting.”

“When it tastes ‘good’ it… tastes like cum, what can I say? When it’s bad, it’s all bitter and makes you gag.”

“It is the strangest taste… it always makes me want root beer, though.”

The wordy critique:

“Best: Rare. Sweet, slightly salty, and bitter. Like dark chocolate with sea salt. Creamy to liquid consistency.

Good: Common. Bitter, salty, slightly lemony, faint floury taste. Liquid consistency.

Bad: Uncommon. Very salty, very bitter, somewhat garlicky, slightly putrid. Thick, lumpy consistency.”

What my friend said:

“My ex used to say mine had a minty quality to it. Anyone else experience that before?”

“My SO tastes like a very light mix of snot and walnuts.”

“I had an ex-gf describe my smell as ‘warm sourdough bread.'”

“According to my gf, it tastes like a slightly overripe mango. She told me this last night when she cut up a slightly overripe mango and told me to try it.”

The scientific evaluation:

“It might not be everyone, but it’s definitely very, very common. The taste *and smell* comes from a few amines like spermine, cadaverine, and putrescine *lovely, right?*. Besides smelling bad, these basic products of protein breakdown help buffer the acidic environment of the vagina so the sperm can survive their swim. For what it’s worth, semen can also taste sweet, thanks to the large amount of sugar that it contains.”

The referral:

“Ask your mom. She knows what mine tastes like.”

The best answers:

“Deliciousness. That’s what.”

“Immediate regret.”

“The tears of a mermaid. Who has just taken a load to the eye.”

How to make your cum taste better

Now that you’ve read the commentary, here’s what you should do to achieve any or all of the tastes that have been tackled in the list above. [Read: 12 amazing semen facts you didn’t know about]

Like we said, semen differs in taste depending on how your body creates it using food and the existing hormones and substances in your body.

Although it is true that semen tastes better when the owner eats lots of pineapple, it doesn’t necessarily equate to having the actual taste of pineapples.

It’s all based on chemistry, and here’s what you can do to reach the perfect taste that’s meant for you. Whether you prefer snot, potatoes, or mouthwash, there is a way for you or your partner to blow a load that’s palatable for both your senses.

Here’s what you need to know

The taste of semen will improve depending on your water intake and the status of your health. No matter how many pineapples you eat, it won’t taste any better if your body is full of gunk and toxins that will inevitably end up on your partner’s tongue.

Studies show that vegetarians have better-tasting semen, while those who eat a lot of meat, drink alcohol, and smoke are more likely to have foul-tasting cum.

If you’re not particular about the taste of cum, yet won’t tolerate jizz that tastes like something fished out of a toilet, you better tell your partner to hydrate and lessen his intake of foods that make cum taste bad before you have sex.

For those who want a sweeter taste, pineapples are a good choice because fruits are high in water and fructose. That’s what makes it so sweet. If you’re allergic or if you dislike pineapples, you can eat other juicy fruits like oranges and berries instead.

For out-of-the-box tastes like mint and cinnamon, you might want to experiment by adding it to your recent meal or in your drink. We can’t say for sure whether the taste will pop into your mouth after you swallow, but it’s worth a try at least.

  1. Cummy says:

    The first time I tasted cum was with my first real boyfriend when he and I were busy exploring each other’s bodies and our sexuality and were giving each other oral. He warned me that he was going to cum and I said something like “I’ve come a thousand times already” (so I exaggerated — I was in love & in lust) and kept right on sucking and he came in my mouth and I thought it was so exciting and erotic and wonderful and I will never forget that wonderful and loving experience. And just like other’s experience, I thought it was great and I loved it and I still love it now, more than three and a half decades later. (That was the first time I had a mouthful of cum that I could feel and taste and swallow. One time prior to this I had given him a hand job and after he came, I bend down and kissed the tip of his penis, so technically I suppose you might say that kiss was the first time, but it wasn’t much of a taste — I just lightly kissed it, I didn’t lick or suck or anything like that… and I do not remember having any thought about taste.)

  2. Grace says:

    I love it when my man cums in my mouth, on my face, down my throat (you get the picture), but I enjoy it with him a lot more than I have in previous relationships. To me he tastes wonderful. My feeling is that if I’m asking whoever I’m dating to get my juices all over his face when he goes down on me, that I should at least attempt at reciprocating. Cum comes in a variety of flavors, textures and amounts – some of which are more appealing than others. I would bring it up while you’re playing with her – whisper in her ear how hot it would be if you could cum in her mouth – how sexy it makes her and how much her mouth on your cock turns you on. If asking her outright isn’t working, you might be able to get her to do it by dirty talking your way in. It’s worked on me before. lol

  3. Small says:

    I don’t know if it’s just me, but guys taste/smell like cleaning products (bleach) to me, every.single. time. But I also never let it sit in my mouth long enough to determine if it’s salty, sweet, whatever.

  4. pre says:

    My current has swallowed on occasion but is not a fan. A few ex g/F’s did not, and for one or two, it was the norm, one would swallow almost every time we fucked. She had me pull out and would suck me dry. I have an occasional friends with benefits who loves to swallow, for both her husband and me, with his blessing ( never together, she goes home and tells him all). As a male I have tasted when challenged to by 1-2 friends with benefits and have been snowballed a few times) one casual friend will not suck me, but likes to watch me jerk off and likes to taste my pre cum from my fingers…
