Having read the ying, I am now curious about the yang: fellatio aficionados, what does it taste like to you?

yin. Not "ying".

It really depends on what he's been eating and his general health - and also how long it's been since he previously offloaded. It's always salty, but can be bitter, sweet etc and if it's been stewing in his balls for a while, it's usually stronger and more densely flavoured.

It tastes like love.

It does depend on what he's been eating; my husband loves Ice Breakers spearmint flavored mints, and I can tell when he's been eating them. There's nothing to compare it to otherwise, not in my experience. It just tastes like what it is, much like how red velvet cake and Jagermeister taste unique and you can't compare them to something else. I don't find "it" particularly salty although many people use that description. There's usually some bitterness or sourness though.

well, a woman might be curious about what it tastes like because she can't (unless she's fantastically flexible) reach down there and taste it herself.

on the other hand, you sir, have no such limitations, so why not take matters into your own hands!

Soap. At least I hope so.

Are you asking what a penis tastes like or what semen tastes like? A penis tastes like any other part of the body, assuming he keeps it clean. Semen tastes like runny egg yolks.

Red velvet cake is chocolate and Jagermeister tastes like black licorice.

The wifes says "Turkey gravy". Salt and protein and all that.

Salty and bitter, but not unpleasant to me UNLESS the guy smokes. Tobacco, weed, it doesn't matter - I think it's the tars.

Salty egg whites has my vote.
posted by chickygrrl at 6:30 AM on December 16, 2006


I've been told smells like clorox and tastes like raw egg whites with slightly salty thing happening.
posted by stavx at 6:42 AM on December 16, 2006


Most of the time, I'd say salty and slightly sour egg whites is probably the most accurate description. With kind of an egg-drop soup consistency. Although sometimes it's just like a really big hork of phlegm from the back of your throat. (Seconding goo, I'd say that happens when he's, uh, shooting more frequently.)

Some other observations:

Meat-eaters taste stronger and more bitter than vegetarians/vegans.

Drinking pineapple juice really does make it taste sweet.

This confuses me! Why can't women use their hands?

This makes no sense.

It really, truly varies by diet, where meat and caffeine have the most effect. But there is always an underlying bleachiness that tastes very much like alfalfa sprouts.

Buttermilk and Clorox, according to Philip Roth.

Baking soda dissolved in warm water.
posted by macadamiaranch at 10:12 AM on December 16, 2006


Second the baking soda/warm water comment, although there are variations. With at least one ex it really varied depending on what he'd had to eat or drink recently. I've been with someone else who tasted extremely bitter - don't know what that was all about.

Like Danaƫ's longing.
posted by Haruspex at 11:45 AM on December 16, 2006


Salty, tangy, with an ammonia note.

Yes you can affect its flavour, but in my experience, not drastically. It all has had that same basic flavour, just stronger or (preferably) milder.

I have been told I taste like pickle juice.
posted by Iron Rat at 11:58 AM on December 16, 2006


No matter which of my partners it was, it always tasted "clean" to me; not bad, not delicious, not salty, not like Clorox. Just...somehow...clean. Didn't seem to matter what they ate or drank. But maybe I am a weird case.

Agreed, lunalaguna, tastes and smells like sprouts to me.

Gross. Why bother? Just cover it with Saran wrap so you don't have to taste anything.
posted by HotPatatta at 2:47 PM on December 16, 2006


Just cover it with Saran wrap

Cover what, exactly? The penis? The semen? The tongue?

Egg white and sea water, so i've been told.

Chestnuts in blossom. Ok, that's smell, not taste. But they're related, right?
posted by Coaticass at 5:19 PM on December 16, 2006


Nth on the "Everyone tastes different" comment. For me, it's run the gamut from pickle juice to warm spumoni ice cream.

Smelled strongly like tulip poplar in bloom.

I had one once that had a strong asparagus tone. It surprised me, but he was gorgeous. A beautiful teenager of the strawberry blond variety. He was a couple years older than myself. (Thank you for inviting such a wonderful memory)

The sour note is usually there, but not always. Neither is salt always present. Some are acidic, many are not.

Bad. Like something I wish I'd not tasted. Live and learn.

I think "hot glue" comes closest to what I read above.

Pre-cum (god I hate the word "cum", is there a better term? pre-seminal ejectus?) is sweet to me and not gross.
