Knew that would draw your attention! But a serious question: Some guys produce think cum, perhaps not a lot in quanity but very thick and doesn't seem to project very far. Other guys produce a lot of watery cum that really sprays. Some cum is very white and milky and other is almost clear. Do you know what causes these differences? Is your cum always of the same quality or does it vary along this (or another) continuum. Inquiring minds want to know....

    I have heard that diet affects the feel and espically the taste of cum. Apparently the cum of vegetarians is dare I say, easier to swallow (better tasting) than that of meat eaters. It may be an urban legend, but I have read that porn stars use lecithin in some from to make their cum thicker fro those cum shots. Flax seed oil apparently has the same effect.

      Very true. I read an article in one the men's magazines, "Men's Health" or one of those types, that was close to this topic. Food is a big factor and there are some veggies you should avoid, as they will four the taste, sort of speak. My friend says she hates it when men eat asparagus, and she always knows. lol

      My suggestion is to eat Nuts; I mean peanuts, Almonds and Wallnuts.
      A small hand full of Wallnuts after a couple of weeks will make your Cum thicker and will improve the tast.
      After that maybe a few once a week. There actualy very good for you.
      Some folks are alergic so watch how you feel physicaly and emotonaly during the first two weeks.

    From Wikipedia:

    Approximately 200- to 500-million spermatozoa (also called sperm or spermatozoans), produced in the testes, are released per ejaculation. However, they make up only about 2–5% of the volume of semen. The bulk of the semen is composed of seminal plasma, the fluid portion of semen. This fluid is contributed by the accessory male reproductive organs. Some 60% of the volume of ejaculate is produced by the seminal vesicles, and most of the remainder is generated by the prostate. A small amount of viscous mucus secreted by the bulbourethral glands contributes to the cohesive jelly-like texture of semen.

    Seminal plasma of humans contains a complex range of organic and inorganic constituents. They include metal and salt ions, sugars, lipids, steroid hormones, enzymes, prostaglandin hormones, amino acids and basic amines. The seminal plasma provides a nutritive and protective medium for the spermatozoa during their journey through the female reproductive tract. The normal environment of the vagina is a hostile one for sperm cells, as it is very acidic (from the native microflora producing lactic acid), viscous, and patrolled by immune cells. The components in the seminal plasma attempt to compensate for this hostile environment.

    Basic amines such as putrescine, spermine, spermidine and cadaverine are responsible for the smell and flavor of semen. These alkaline bases counteract the acidic environment of the vaginal canal (which is harmful to sperm), and protect DNA inside the sperm from acidic denaturation. Salts and metal ions in the semen help to create a more hospitable environment for the sperm in the vaginal canal. A typical ejaculation can contain up to 5 mg of zinc. Zinc serves to help to stabilize the DNA-containing chromatin in the sperm cells. A zinc deficiency may result in lowered fertility because of increased sperm fragility. Zinc deficiency can also adversely affect spermatogenesis.

    The simple sugar fructose is the main energy source of sperm cells, which rely entirely on sugars from the seminal plasma for energy. Other components of semen (mucus and texturizing proteins) serve to increase the mobility of sperm cells in the vagina and cervix by creating a less viscous channel for the sperm cells to swim through, and preventing their diffusion out of the semen. Prostaglandin hormones are involved in suppressing an immune response by the female against the foreign semen.

    If human semen is left in an open container for a few days, it begins to go bad and produce a distinctive smell similar to the pollen of the Tree of heaven.

        is the chemical that is responsible for the smell of dead bodies. As in death, so in new life.

        It varies. I was with a vegan, but we never made it far enough for me to taste his cum.

    I recently went down on a guy. He came, but I wasn't sure. I couldn't really taste anything. Has this happened to anyone? I don't do that very often, so ...

      When a guy comes during a bj, I like it when he come waaaaaaay back in my throat. I just don't much enjoy the flavor of cum but I love feeling a guy's orgasm that way. Maybe he was cumming dry or could it be he shot right down the gullet without letting you have a taste?

        In the spirit of fairness and accuracy I should mention that I just don't do bj's nowadays, or haven't recently. At least not since that time I knew I had to do SOMEthing or I'd just bust. You know those kind of nights... I have found verbal intercourse, cameraderie, emotional intimacy, all have their own joys and they have lower health risks associated with them.

        That reminds me of the old (sexist) riddle. You can stop reading now, or if you read it anyway and you're offended, tell someone else about it.


        Here it is:

        your wife;
        your meat;
        a blowjob.

        Only two of these go together. Which one doesn't fit?

        Give up?

        It's the last one. Because you can beat your meat and you can beat your wife; but you can't beat a blowjob.

          Many Older Men 50 and up don't shoot much Cum at all.
          These Men still orgasm and climax,but unless you have only the tip of his Penis in your mouth at the time he "shoots" there will be little to nothing to "taste".

    If the link works you might enjoy the story in second place at this web site
    It does explain something about the perception of taste. Regarding thickness - depends on a number of factors but basically hydration. Drink more water and it'll be thinner and more fluid - drink alcohol and the astringency that dries you out and gives you a headache will also dry out your semen, making it thicker and more viscose.

    I don't know but I've been told red-heads have thicker semen. Maybe it indicates they should drink more water.

    Don't know the biology, but I can tell you my experience.

    When I masturbate a long time (I'm talking about a couple of hours), I tend to shoot farther, wetter and stronger. When I try to cum more quickly (10-15 minutes), I don't have the pubococcygeus power, I have less cum and the cum I do have tends to be thicker. There may be other factors (diet, for example), but I haven't paid enough attention to them to know how it affects me.

    So if you want to shoot harder, stronger, further and thinner, try "edging", getting close and backing off, staying stimulated, enjoy the sensations of jacking off for a while, and see if that doesn't make your cum (and orgasm) feel a little different.

    (And for all you guys concerned about age, my dad still has sex at the age of 83. What I've been told is keep in shape by using your sexual organs, and try not to let your mind get in the way of your sex life.)

    I only know from one experience I've had in my life, and this is just if you're an alcoholic. I dated a man who was an alcoholic and his cum, not when it was coming out but minutes after, smelled like rotten potatoes. joke. What I found is that once he started going to AA and wasn't changed and smelled like normal cum.

    I know that has nothing to do with looks or thickness, but one example, I believe, of how diet and intake into the body changes your chemistry.
