Men who want their semen to taste nice should make sure they follow healthy diets, according to a general practitioner interviewed for a recent article in Cosmopolitan.
Speaking on the subject to the magazine, Dr Diana Gall said that being hydrated or dehydrated “has an effect on the taste of your semen; the more hydrated you are, the milder the taste will be. Healthier diets are more likely to produce better-tasting semen that’s less bitter.”
Another GP, Dr Shirin Larkhani, explained that although semen taste can vary hugely from one person to another, there are certai common tastes that indicate semen is healthy.
"Strong-tasting vegetables like cauliflower, broccoli, garlic and caffeine may make semen taste or smell unpleasant,” said Dr Larkhani, “whereas pineapple, oranges and other sweet fruits may make it taste sweeter. This is largely due to how the enzymes in the food break down and affect proteins, thus impacting on the smell and taste.This is highly subjective, though - just as our tastes vary with food, it's logical that our tastes in semen does too.”
