The vagina possesses its own unique scent and flavor, which can be described as slightly musky. Occasionally, the odor may become stronger, particularly after exercise, during your period/ovulation and even certain medications can alter the taste. Your vagina is not to smell like roses, perfume or candy. The only time you should be concerned is if it smells sort of fishy or unpleasant. Because that can mean you have Bacterial Vaginosis, a Yeast Infection or some other health issue.
They say you are what you eat, but I was determined to find out if this adage would extend to my intimate health as well. Curiosity got the better of me so my partner (Let’s call him Tobi) and I embarked on a unique culinary adventure to explore the relationship between what I consume and the taste of my vagina. Tobi was more than happy to join me on this experiment as all he had to do was go down on me to test each food out.
Let’s find out if what you eat can really influence the taste of your vagina.
Pineapple Added a Hint of Sweetness
Of course, at the top of my list was the pineapple, known for its reputation of infusing a sweet and tropical essence into the nether regions. With eager anticipation, I savored every bite of some juicy pineapple slices I had kept in my fridge, delighting in their distinctively sweet flavor and hoping for an actual effect on the taste down below. After 2-3 hours of ingesting it, to my satisfaction, the results were not disappointing. According to Tobi, the pineapple added a very subtle hint of sweetness to the natural taste of my vagina. At first, he swore I tasted and smelled the same but after a few more trials, he said I tasted a bit sweeter.
Yogurt Didn’t Do Much
In my adventurous journey, Greek yogurt made its appearance. Celebrated for its probiotic properties and potential to balance pH levels, with each spoonful of creamy goodness, I eagerly hoped it will go easy on my vagina. My friends have shared their experiences with yogurt and let’s just say it wasn’t so pleasant. As I savored the creamy texture and tangy flavor, I couldn’t help but hope for a better taste. I waited for exactly 4 hours, and by the time Tobi went down on me, he said the yogurt didn’t do much because I tasted normal, but a little sour.
Citrus Fruits Added an Extra Zest
Continuing my journey of taste exploration, I ventured into the realm of citrus fruits – I mixed oranges and grape fruits, and used a juicer to drain the content. After 1 hour, Tobi did the needful and went down on me. According to him, I tasted the same but he noted a very subtle difference. It wasn’t distinct at all, in his words. But he said it tasted different from the pineapple and yogurt.
Cinnamon Made No Difference
The next day, I decided to explore the potential of cinnamon. I added a pinch to my morning oatmeal and as I savoured the delightful flavours and embraced the comforting aroma of cinnamon, I waited 2 hours before indulging in steamy morning sex. As Tobi did his thing, I wondered about its potential impact on vaginal taste. To my surprise, the effects remained a mystery to us. According to him, he didn’t notice any change whatsoever.
Watermelon Made Me Taste Really Good
Before a night out together the following week, I surrendered to the alluring charm of the luscious watermelon. I indulged in a chunk of juicy slices and made my way out. When we got back home hours later, I ate some more. I read about watermelon containing a sex boosting chemical substance called Citrulline, that helps to dilate the blood vessels of the vagina with better blood flow. Basically it makes you wet and adds a fresh taste to your vagina. So yeah, I was determined to finish a whole watermelon. With its high water content and refreshing taste, it held the promise of being a potential game-changer. After about an hour, to my delight, Tobi loved the effect of watermelon. According to him, I tasted “really good.”
Throughout the journey, I realised that the taste and scent of our bodies are unique, influenced by a variety of factors beyond our control. While certain foods may have the potential to introduce subtle changes, it’s important to remember that embracing good hygiene practices, maintaining a balanced diet, and leading a healthy lifestyle is paramount for our vagina. The pursuit of altering the taste of our vaginas, should not overshadow the importance of self-acceptance and self-care. Celebrating our bodies as they are, with all their natural attributes and complexities, is a powerful act of embracing our individuality and promoting self-love.
It is essential to recognize that the impact of food on the vaginal taste may vary for each individual. So, let us indulge in the pleasures of exploring new flavors and experiences, but let us also remember that true beauty and confidence lies in embracing ourselves wholly, just as nature intended. Our bodies are uniquely beautiful in their natural state.
