The Taste of Sex

“I just love how my partner tastes.” “Oral sex is disgusting.” “My partner loves receiving oral so I love giving it.” “I don’t like oral so I don’t do it.” “It’s my favourite thing to do.” “It’s okay, but I like other things a lot more.”

We all enjoy oral sex to varying degrees. Some avoid it, some crave it and some choose not to partake. It can be a very creative and integral part of your sexual experiences or something you try to avoid at all costs. One reason many people dislike oral sex is the taste.

How much you enjoy or dislike the taste can vary from lover to lover. Each person has their own unique taste and differences in diet can have an influence also. For example, male ejaculate can taste bitter, sweet, sour, salty, or is sometimes described as tasting a little like bleach.

How can you make your taste more enjoyable during oral sex? Eating pineapple, mango, melon, strawberries, apple, pear, kiwi and even celery will help sweeten sexual fluids regardless of gender. For best results, have your snack 1-3 hours before engaging in oral sex.

Coffee, alcohol and tobacco can have an adverse affect on taste.  Even healthy things such as garlic, beets, asparagus and vitamin supplements can have a less than desirable effect. I’m not suggesting you eliminate them if they’re part of your healthy lifestyle, however, simply avoiding them for the few hours prior to oral sex can make a difference.

If you’re not too fond of the taste, or just want to change things up a bit, make it part of your foreplay. To lay the groundwork, share with your partner (at some casual moment, when sex is not on your agenda) the benefits of certain fruits and vegetables. Then, try some variation of these ideas:

    • Be “innocently” suggestive: Set out an array of these delicious delights and let their imagination do the work.
    • Be delightfully playful: Tease them with little suggestions about what you plan to do later on; after they have enjoyed the fruits you have prepared for them.
    • Make it more overtly sexual: Offer them shapes that mimic various body parts.  Breasts or cock-and-balls are easy to suggest with a ring of pineapple with a small strawberry in the center or a banana and two strawberries, respectively.

If you’d rather be more spontaneous, there are still lots of fun and creative ways to alter taste on a moment’s notice. Use what’s around. Chocolate sauce and whip cream are common additions to sex play, and don’t forget about champagne and strawberries. We’ve all heard talk about how romantic, fun and passionate they are, so why not creatively include them in your play? One thing to keep in mind is that anything containing sugar is generally bad for vaginal health.

When using barriers such as condoms or dental dams, there are options. Flavoured latex barriers have the advantage of masking the awful taste of latex. Barriers can also be sexy. Putting a condom on with your mouth takes some practice, but it will blow his mind. If you’re using a dental dam, create anticipation by attaching it to a set of garters so your hands are free for other exciting uses.  Flavoured dental dams are pretty thin and are available in both latex and non-latex. Unfortunately I have yet to come across any flavoured condoms that are thin, specially shaped, or non-latex and as they generally use water-based lubricants, they may not last long enough. Regardless of barrier use, flavoured lubricants are a good choice as they alter taste and keep things nice and slick.

It’s important to read the ingredients list on flavoured lube because glycerin is a form of sugar that can aggravate vaginal yeast infections for those prone to getting them.  Some people have reported that vegetable glycerin, found in O’My flavoured lubricants, does not aggravate their yeast infections. The only way to know for sure is from your own experience. O’My flavoured lube comes in a variety of tantalizing flavours including Kiwi Strawberry, Cappuccino and Blueberry Cheesecake. Alternatively, “Lubricant Lickuers” by Hathor are glycerin-free, sweetened with Stevia and come in the unique flavours of Hazelnut Caramel, Coconut Orange and Chocolate Strawberry.

There are plenty of flavoured lubricants, varying in sweetness, so taste-test them first as not every one will be to your liking. You can always use your lover as a sample platter. 😉 The options are endless so experiment, play and discover what gives you and your partner, pleasure.  Have fun and bon appetit!

Here’s a quick little recipe you can try…

Passion Kabobs


  • Pineapple
  • Firm Strawberries
  • Bananas
  • Firm Melon
  • Firm Mango
  • Wooden Skewer Sticks


  1. Cut the pineapple, bananas, melon and mango into 3/4 inch wide chunks. If the strawberries are small use them whole, otherwise cut them in half length-wise.
  2. Slide the fruit onto the skewers in any combination. Leave some of the skewer uncovered at each end for handles; this makes for less fumbling when playing with your Passion Kabobs. You may choose to provocatively enjoy yours while your partner watches or feed your lover in a playful manner, teasing as you desire.

For the most effective results serve your kabobs 1-2 hours before engaging in oral sex. Variety is the spice of life (and sex) so here are some options:

  • Chocolate: provide a bowl of chocolate sauce for dipping the kabobs or drizzle some over the kabobs and the plate for decoration and a hint of chocolate.
  • Whip cream: a bowl of fresh whipped cream is great for dipping or you can put a dollop on each kabob
  • Change the fruit selection to suit yours and your partner’s preferences. Apples, pears and kiwi can be nice additions.
