Humans are curious creatures and nothing excites our curiosity as much as sex. One of the questions both men and women ask most often is “What does cum taste like”? If you’ve never had the chance to taste cum before, are afraid to try or simply don’t have a male partner who could help satisfy your curiosity, we’re here to help.
What does cum taste like?
There’s no one single answer to this question, as the taste of cum will vary greatly from one guy to another and even the cum of one person can change its taste depending on the diet, the amount of water the person has had recently, etc. The taste of women’s cum can vary as well.
Male cum can be described as a viscous liquid, however, the level of its thickness can vary a lot depending on the guy. Thicker ejaculate typically has more protein in it and is often a sign that a man doesn’t ejaculate very frequently. At the same time, if the man ejaculates more frequently and has less protein in his cum, it will be thinner and more liquidy. In general, the texture of cum can vary from a thin, watery liquid to a thick, cream-like substance.
So what about the actual flavor of cum? In general, it is described as having salty, bitter, sweet and even bleachy notes. The sweetness in the taste of cum is usually very mild, if present at all, and it comes from fructose, glucose and other sugars found in ejaculate. The concentration of sugars in cum is typically not very high, so if there’s any sweetness at all, it could be obscured by other flavors. The saltiness, on the other hand, is much more pronounced and most people describe cum as being first and foremost, salty. The salty taste is completely normal and it comes from minerals, such as sodium, that are contained in semen. The bitter notes that can often be found in semen usually come from the fact that semen has a basic pH. At the same time, men who have had a vasectomy have a more neutral pH in their semen, which leads to a more muted, less pronounced taste. The bleachy notes that can sometimes be tasted in semen also come from its basic pH and are not a cause for concern.
