im curious.-- ejaculate

Postby infectious » Fri Mar 17, 2006 1:21 am

I know this question sounds weird and this may seem offensive to some of the members here..but i'm just curious...people, is there really a way on improving the smell or let's say the "taste" of your ejaculate?

I've ever read that 'taste' of ejaculation is kinda like a subjective sensation....so, I think it depends on you..

Just heard about it. Don't know if it's true or not but some say that it is partially related to what you eat.

PS: Yes those kind of questions can be considered as offensive. I hope you posted this just to LEARN. Otherwise it will be deleted.

I would agree that it is related to what you eat, just as urine, sweat and cerebrospinal fluid composition are related. Because it is created by secretion. I would say extra fructose would make it more sweet...

More sweet? I don't think it tastes "sweet" at all.
But maybe not eating smelly things like garlic may help for smell.

Well, it contains fructose... So a lot of fructose makes something sweet don't it?

From wikipedia
Basic amines such as putrescine, spermine, spermidine and cadaverine are responsible for the smell and flavor of semen. These alkaline bases counteract the acidic environment of the vaginal canal (which is harmful to sperm), and protect DNA inside the sperm from acidic denaturation. Salts and metal ions in the semen help to create a more hospitable environment for the sperm in the vaginal canal.

Putrescine and cadaverine?! Cadavers smell like semen?
I don't see why the taste or smell matters at all, the fluid goes into the vagina which lacks chemoreceptors which tell flavor or smell ;)

Well, not all goes into vagina. Like diring oral intercourse. But I have had former girlfriend saying my ejaculate tasted different/sweet before but I am not sure why. It could have something to do with what I ate, but I think maybe more likely it could be caused by certain things happening to body, like stress levels, or raised metabolism. I would never taste semen though so it would not matter to me. Or maybe a certain medication you take can change chemical levels in body.

I wonder if semen is affected the same way urine/sweat is when you eat strong foods like poison said for garlic?

Cadaverine and putresceine? Those things smell like hell.. They are some of the amines produced by intestinal flora in the process of feces production..

No. Rather salty.

Is there a possibility for you to be a diabetic. Just heard about it.
