I wasn't always a fan of receiving oral, but when I got put on to how good it felt, I was and stayed hooked. Despite the interest I had for my vagina and a curiosity about its function, I was unnerved by the idea of having someone wanting to put their face in between my thighs. It was a very vulnerable act and one that I was intimidated by. At the time, the untamed bush on my pubic region and the scent of my womanhood was something I was embarrassed by and I wanted nothing more but to be confident whenever I was intimate with someone, so I refrained. But when I understood what it was that guys were after when they wanted to travel down south, I became fascinated in that area for a new reason: its taste.
There will never be someone who tastes quite like you or smells quite like you and there's something poetic about etching that stamp in a lover's memory. While I don't think your motivation for a sweeter taste should solely exist in the perception or ideals of a man, I don't think there's a problem with trying to please your romantic partner. The way a vagina tastes is a collection of factors: arousal fluids that occur when you are aroused, perspiration, and last, but certainly not least, the way you eat. (FYI: Diet plays a major role in how sweet male secretions are as well so if your man needs a semen taste boost, refer him to these tips as well.)
Below are some foods you should incorporate and eliminate from your diet to have a sweeter taste down there.
What To Add To Your Diet To Make Your Vagina Taste Sweeter:
Eating pineapple is the most common way that both sexes try in effort to make your vagina taste sweeter. The vagina is very acidic. Regularly eating pineapples can prove to be very effective at maintaining the delicate balance of the vagina's pH and can thus, make your secretions during sex or arousal taste sweeter. Other fruits in the citrus family like mango, grapefruit, and/or oranges can create the same result.
An alkaline spice like cinnamon can help neutralize your vagina's acidic taste. As a mild antibiotic, it can help you with maintaining your vaginal balance ensuring a better, sweeter taste. Sprinkle cinnamon onto your yogurt or oatmeal in the mornings. Add the spice to bread recipes or to your favorite smoothie recipe. Nutmeg is another spice that can help maintain the vagina's sweeter taste.
The phrase "the darker the berry, the sweeter the juice" should be taken literally. Blueberries, strawberries, and cranberries are amazing fruits to include in your healthy, sweeter vagina dietary plan. As you know, cranberry juice is a great combatant of bacteria that makes its way to the urinary tract, preventing the occurrence of UTIs. Cranberries can be consumed in fruit form, but it is admittedly more palatable in juice form. Remember though, skip the Ocean Spray and buy cranberry juice that is raw/pure to avoid the intense amounts of added sugars.
Rid your body of toxins while keeping it hydrated by drinking enough water. For most people, that's about two liters a day. Mix things up throughout the day by drinking a cup or two of unsweetened green tea. You can also get your hydration needs fulfilled with foods high in water content like watermelon, kiwi, and cucumbers.
What Makes The Vagina Have A Bitter (Read: Unpleasant) Taste:
The probiotics found in natural yogurt do wonders for maintaining vaginal health and taste, but other forms of dairy like milk, cheese, ice cream, etc. can give your vagina a salty or bitter undertone in the taste department. And on the journey to making your vagina taste awesome, who wants that?
Although it's normal for some vaginas to naturally have a more metallic taste – especially before, during, and after periods – having a diet very heavily saturated with red meat like beef and lamb can heighten how sharp and/or how salty you taste.
The preservatives and chemicals often found in processed foods contribute to the imbalance of bacteria in the body leading to an out of whack pH balance which will lead to an out of whack taste. That means "no" to most fried foods as well.
Alcoholic beverages of all kinds can affect the way that you taste because of its ability to alter your pH balance of your vagina. So while a shot is a great way to loosen up for a night of great fun, it might not be the greatest prelude to a night of indulgent head.
Don't get me wrong, he will still go down on you, but you won't be putting your best taste forward if you don't watch what you put into your body on the regular. Eat well so he can too.
I'm all for feeding a man that's hungry. Aren't you?
