If you’re like most people, there are a few seminal moments in your sex life that you’ll never forget. These may include memories of your first kiss, where you were when you lost your virginity or the exact moment you learned that eating pineapple could make your jizz taste like a piña colada. OK, maybe not exactly like a piña colada, but what you heard is true – pineapple can significantly sweeten your juices.
If the connection between pineapple and semen taste is news to you, then keep reading because we’re about to take a deep dive into the extraordinary powers of this luscious fruit.
What Goes In, Must Come Out
Broadly speaking, what we put into our bodies can influence the way our bodies smell. Are you an asparagus fan? If so, you probably know that eating asparagus can make your pee smell a little funky. (It can make your cum smell funky, too, FYI.) The same is true with body odor. Some research indicates that eating a healthy diet full of fruits and vegetables can make your sweat smell better than the sweat of those whose diets are high in meat and carbohydrates.
Semen taste follows the same logic. Foods such as coffee, garlic and onions can make semen taste bitter and unpleasant. Cigarettes, alcohol and marijuana can do the same. However, foods that are high in sugar do the exact opposite. They can make your semen taste sweet. But before you hoover down that box of donuts, it’s important to note that due to their water content, fiber and nutrients, fruits like pineapple are a much better option than refined sugar when it comes to semen sweetening.
Another plus for pineapple is its acidity. For evolutionary reasons, male ejaculate is usually alkaline. That’s because the inside of a vagina is acidic, and sperm needs to be able to get through that somewhat hostile environment unscathed in order to fertilize an egg and make a baby. However, that alkalinity can also cause cum to taste a bit bitter. Anything that raises the pH is likely to also decrease the alkalinity and the bitterness.
The Benefits of Bromelain
Pineapple has another taste-enhancing trick up its sleeve in the form of an enzyme called bromelain. Bromelain, also known as bromelin, was first isolated from pineapple juice in the late 1800s. And while it wasn’t used as a supplement in the west until the mid-20th century, it has been widely used by indigenous peoples of Central and South America for centuries. Bromelain can be found in all parts of the pineapple, but for commercial processing, it’s most often sourced from the stem.
Bromelain has many health benefits, including immune-boosting and anti-inflammatory properties. Throughout history, it has been used to reduce swelling, treat wounds and remedy gastrointestinal ailments such as diarrhea and indigestion. It’s also believed to positively effect the circulatory system by preventing blood clots, strokes and pain from varicose veins.
All this, and it makes your jizz taste fruity, too! Bromelain as a supplement is useful because it’s difficult (and expensive) to consume an amount of pineapple that’s large enough to reap most of these health benefits. Even if you love pineapple, eating enough to experience the medicinal effects of bromelain is next to impossible. You’re likely to end up with a raw mouth and an upset stomach if you try.
We’re not exactly sure who first connected the dots between bromelain and semen taste, but once the cat was out of the bag, there have been no shortage of people willing to do field research to prove or disprove its effects. While true scientific studies are unlikely to ever be conclusive due to the subjective nature of taste, the connection between bromelain and the flavor of semen is well documented. That’s why we included bromelain as one of the main ingredients in our Popstar supplement.
Why Does Taste Matter?
All of this begs the question – do I really need sweet semen? The short answer is no. Nobody needs sweeter semen. However, there are a lot of good reasons why you might want your semen to taste better. If you’ve never tasted semen before, you might not know that the most common ways to describe it are bitter, salty, sour, funky, metallic or sweet. Out of those descriptors, I think it’s pretty clear which one sounds the best.
Many of our patients come to us with complaints from their partners. They tell us that their partners are hesitant to perform oral sex because they think it tastes bad. Or, in some cases they haven’t been told this directly, but they worry that the way they taste is a turnoff. Enhancing the taste of your ejaculate for the benefit of your partner is not only a great reason to try for sweeter semen, but it’s also the mark of a generous lover and a good way to get more BJs.
From what we’ve heard from our patients and our Popstar customers, better tasting cum can intensify the pleasure of oral sex and can increase satisfaction with sex in general. If you’re interested in exploring the benefits of pineapple for yourself and your partner, we recommend you give it a try. Popstar is a great way to harness the power of pineapple to maximize your sexual experience. In no time at all, you’ll be enjoying sweet seminal moments of a totally different kind.
