8 Foods That Can Change How You Taste For Oral Sex

8 Foods That Can Change How You Taste For Oral Sex

Everyone has heard the pineapple story right?  “Eat lots of pineapple and your *vagina/semen* will taste great!”  But is it a myth or can you really change how you taste for oral sex.

Before we dive in, let’s remember that our private parts are never going to taste like a vanilla latte or glazed donut – they taste like penis and vagina.  That taste can be sweet or sour, metallic or spiced, salty or bitter and that’s okay. Each of us have a unique natural smell and taste.  As long as you are healthy, there’s nothing wrong with it. However, if you insist on changing how you taste, there are a few things you can eat or drink that may make a subtle difference.

Word of warning! If you start to smell or taste foul, fishy or unpleasant then that could be a sign of bacterial infections and you should medical advice.

What foods can make me taste better for oral sex?

1. Pineapple
Pineapple is of course the “famous” game changer. Despite being rich in acids and Vitamin C, it is thought to have alkalizing effects on the body. The fact that pineapple is hailed to change how you taste is most likely due to the rebalancing of the acidity in the blood.

2. Strawberries and other fruits
Fruit in general can alter your body’s pH level and a penis or vagina that is not too acidic or too alkaline will likely have no strange odors or tastes.

Strawberries and mangoes are super sweet and can enhance the sweetness during oral sex.

Keep in mind that the effects of what you eat are not instantaneous. Introducing the fruits at least 12 hours before can have the best effects.  It’s unlikely your partner will come up thinking they’ve just eaten a fruit salad but the experience may be slightly sweeter than normal.

3. Celery
Celery is mostly fibre and water and is known for its odor neutralizing properties.

Dehydration is one of the biggest issues of genital odors or slightly off tastes. We all know that urine can be light or dark coloured depending on a person’s level of hydration. More concentrated urine will generally have a stronger smell which can leave a residual trace on your genitals.  Stocking up on celery will definitely help you stay hydrated and reduce some of the bitter taste you may have.

4. Yoghurt
While excess dairy can have a negative impact on your taste and smell, yogurt can have the opposite effect. Natural yoghurt is full of probiotics, or good bacteria.  These basically fight off the bad bacteria that can cause yeast infections and the sickly odor that comes with them.

If yogurt leaves you with a delicate stomach then try some coconut yogurt or probiotics from your local health food store.

What foods can make me taste bad for oral sex?

5. Caffeine
Coffee is very acidic and can change your genital pH level, affecting how you taste and smell. Excess caffeine can result in a more bitter taste down there.

Cigarettes and excess alcohol can actually have the same effect.

6. Asparagus
If you’ve ever eaten Asparagus then you definitely know the effect it has on your body. That strong pee smell a few hours later is not one to be forgotten.  This is because the body breaks down some of the acids into sulfur-containing compounds.


Lots of strong vegetables have the same effect just not as sniffing obvious.  Cauliflower and broccoli can both you leave you tasting a little “grassy”.

Garlic is another one. Famous for leaving your breath smelling bad it is also known to alter the smell of breast milk so it stands to reason that it can make things taste a little different down there too.

7. Spices
Have you ever experienced the “curry sweats”? The morning after a good curry and you can smell the spices expelling from your pores? Well, they can expel from other regions to.

Curries and spices have been reported to make things taste “a little funkier – not bad, just different and a little stronger”.

8. Red Meat
The jury is out on this one as a matter of opinion.

The most common reported effects from excess red meat consumption is that it can make your vagina or semen taste super salty.

If you are usually heavy handed with the salt shaker at dinner then this could be great for you, otherwise maybe ask your partner to stick with the chicken.


Although there is no genuine scientific evidence to support the above claims, it does seem likely that foods with strong tastes or smell can subtly alter your bodily fluids.

In general, remember that anything that is good for your body is also good for your nether regions. In addition to the fruits and other foods, it’s really important to drink enough water and get enough sleep and exercise.

And, just as our tastes vary with food, our bodily fluids will vary too – everyone is different and that’s ok!

    a friend of mine, married a Thai girl, she swears that the fruit changes ‘the taste’. He tells me she feeds him pineapple or mango with just about every meal, lucky guy

      That’s really interesting, thanks for sharing. I wonder if it’s the amount she’s feeding him or if she has very sensitive taste buds? You need to ask if he’s tried it on her too 😉

    I hear kiwi fruit and lemons/limes can be good too, a friend told me…. lol x

      I’m not sure I could eat enough lemons/limes to make a difference – unless they are in gin perhaps. Hope your ‘friend’ enjoys the taste 😉

    Cinnamon also works a treat.
