How Do You Overcome Disgust of Semen?

By Kendra Holliday | July 1, 2014

Dear Kendra,

I wanted to ask your advice on how to convince my girlfriend to get more into oral sex. She learned in one of her nursing classes that cum is basically the same thing as snot, and ever since has been disgusted by it.

Getting her to do it now (and she’s really good at it!) takes an act of congress. She isn’t interested in spitting either, as she doesn’t even want the precum in her mouth. Giving and receiving oral is a very important part of intimacy to me.

My reply:

First of all, I really wish people teaching nursing classes wouldn’t sabotage sex lives. A friend of mine who is in nursing school told me his instructor gravely informed the class that anal sex can rupture the rectum, and should never be attempted.

As far as your question goes, I have also noticed that semen has the consistency of snot and doesn’t taste like ambrosia. It contains protein, vitamin C, calcium, chlorine, cholesterol, citric acid, creatine, fructose, lactic acid, magnesium, nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, vitamin B12, and zinc. It’s about 20 calories a shot, which is usually 1/2 – 1 teaspoon. I honestly wished it tasted better for me, but I’ve happily come to terms with it, as have these 100 people who share their creative cum swallowing tips on this highly informative page.

I’ll never forget the woman a therapist told me about who would habitually lay a lace hanky down primly on her husband’s belly to “catch the mess.” She probably thought she was being accommodating to be down there, but it drove her husband nuts.

Then there was the time I was eager to eat my man’s cum out of Rockabilly Girl’s freshly fucked pussy, but as she swung her leg over my head, a glob of it nailed me in the eye dammit. Don’t you hate when that happens?

Have you ever been put off by semen in the past? What helped you get over it? I have a rule that I only swallow the ones I love, but for those of you who will swallow casually, what are your thoughts on it?

off topic, but that lace handkerchief thing could be a fun part of a ‘prim and proper’ role-play… :embarrassed:

I read that if the man eats fruit, like pineapple, strawberries, etc., his cum will taste better. Coffee and cigarettes will make it taste bad. Garlic?…I doubt if it would taste good.

I think that a big part of enjoying cum has to do with attitude. I have also heard of people using plain yogurt and adding salt to get the taste and consistency. That is not exact, but it can help a person get accostumed to the taste a little. I have never been bothered by the taste, I see it as the reward for a blowjob done well.

I know this an old post, but I am catching up. I was profoundly influenced by one of Nancy Friday’s sexual fantasy books ( can’t remember which) where a man described a fantasy where his cum was golden beautful she’s that the women in his fantasy where rapturous to consume. I was probably 15 or so when I read that and since then that is how I have thiught of cum. Beautiful, powerful, essence of life. My husband has recently begun “snowballing” with me after he comes in my mouth or on my tits, and it is so erotically satisfying I can barely begin to describe it…,

I just reread Scarlet Letter & it was so good and bad & relevant. Fascinating perspective of female energy & being punished & judged.

I read Anthony Bourdain's book Kitchen Confidential when it came out & was disgusted by the "meathead bro" culture.…
