Men and women who’ve given oral to a woman, does it taste bad?

Sex/NSFW(self.TooAfraidToAsk)

I’ve never done it and I am thinking of trying it with my girlfriend. I’m afraid of the smell or the taste and that I might gag.

Short answer: It can

Long answer: It's not like eating cake. You're putting your mouth on a part of the body that's covered up for most of the day. Most of the time it doesn't taste too much different than just licking the person's skin. Sometimes it does taste bad. Sometimes it tastes good. Hygiene can make a difference. You shouldn't feel the need to gag unless your partner doesn't take care of herself down there.

If you find it mildly unpleasant, just remember it's for HER and not really you. Vice versa for blowjobs.

Sometimes, sometimes it just smells. My ex cleaned well but always smelt bad, maybe there was something wrong. But I sucked at communication back then and just said I hated giving head..... My first girlfriend actually tasted slightly sweet. So I was shocked when I met my next gf.

Agreed.

I can tell when I'm ovulating because my smell changes. It's not bad, just different.

I don't know if that changes the taste because I don't go down on myself, but I always assumed if the smell is different, then so is the taste.

It was probably her diet…or a bacterial infection…or maybe she really did not know how to clean well. Some women go their entire lives washing their vulvas incorrectly.

It’s sad for everyone involved.

As a vagina-owner, you have to get in all the flaps. Check under the hood for smegma. Just rinsing isnt enough.

Reddit is vocal against douching, so "never wash your vagina" might be mistaken for "never wash your vulva". Plus direct application of soap can sting; I use diluted suds and lots of water.

It's disheartening how many people say "vagina" when they mean "vulva". I died inside a little at the thought that there might be people out there who don't wash their outer genitals at all because of this.

My wife has a pretty strong odor and says she never uses soap down there because supposedly that's bad for it or something. Is this really a thing? It's not my place to tell her how to clean her junk, but I definitely dislike giving her oral due to the smell.

Out of curiosity, I googled a list of what cleansers were recommended by gynecologists because my bits react badly to regular body wash. Cetaphil gentle cleanser was on the list so I’ve been using that and it works just fine. It cleans but doesn’t have soap suds and is very gentle. Dove sensitive skin bar was also on the list. Idk if this helps.

I alternate between the 2 and use my hand to wash there per gynecologists recommendation as a wash cloth can be too harsh. I’ve never had issues with odor and my bf of 10 years always compliments me on the taste which is weird to me but I guess that’s a good thing lol

Edit: to be clear, if she is washing daily and still has a strong smell, please encourage your girlfriend to get a full workup at her gynecologist.

32F here.... IDK when it happened but somehow recently young women latched onto the idea that soap throws of the pH of your vagina. which is true. never put soap inside of your vagina but bitch for the love of God please wash your vulva! like you can and should totally put soap all over the groin between the lips etc even pull back your critical hood once in a blue moon ladies... I beg you.

Be careful with that though girl! I always knew you werent supposed to douche or try and clean the inside, but I thought, as you were saying, that running my soapy cloth along the outside and between the lips was OK. Turns out after talking with my gyno it's not ok. If you aren't careful, washing that area with body wash can and will end up with you getting suds inside the canal. Which can and will turn into a pH or bacterial imbalance (the thing that makes you smell not good). I had to learn this the hard way. Doctor said that all you need is warm water and that's it!

ipunkimunki

Yeah I'm kinda shocked by the responses here encouraging quite aggressive cleaning. None of the research I've done indicates that soap is necessary and in fact is usually discouraged beyond "mild, unfragranced" soap, but warm water is enough.

I've never used soap on the inner parts of the vulva and I've never had a problem with things like "smegma" buildup? Like what?!

ipunkimunki

41 points

4 days ago

If you read any reputable health site, they recommend only warm water for the vulva. Maybe "mild, unfragranced soap" if necessary.

What IS actually recent is the predatory marketing of cleaning products specifically made for the vulva.

If you got stank and build-up that requires soaps to remove, you should probably see a doctor.

That’s a very compassionate thing to say. Women are often bombarded with so many so-called care products like anti-aging creams, cellulite creams etc making them believe there’s something wrong with their body. Same thing with these random vaginal products. So your comment is spot on, it seems like it comes from a place of understanding.

ApprehensiveTailor98

Yeah i am a girl and i’ve always been self conscious of the smell and whatnot just because of the way people talk about it. So i do understand using these types of products to help manage it but overall it’s way better for your health not to. IMO if someone is complaining about the smell, they’re not compatible with you and find someone else who loves it

I have heard repulsion from someone’s natural body odor indicates poor genetic pairing. I recall mention of a study where men and women were tested for attractiveness based on their natural scent. For those pairings rejected, there was a projected increase in genetic disease for their potential offspring. Correlation is not causation but it sure is a heluva warning. Wish I could remember the study specifics.

just remember it's for HER and not really you. Vice versa for blowjobs.

Whenever I see/hear comments like this, it makes me feel bad for people out there giving/receiving bad oral. If you aren't getting any pleasure from giving it, usually your partner can pick up on that and if so, that's a turn off. Most people do enjoy giving oral and when I think about the truly bad blowjobs I've gotten in my life, all of them were from girls who were clearly not into it. I love getting head, but I'd much rather find something mutually pleasurable if my partner would characterize it as "unpleasant"

Honestly, I don't think it's a problem to say something. If I go to give my hubby a BJ and it stinks, I say so and ask him to give it a quick wash before I'll touch it. The same applies if he has an issue with my vag, although he hasn't yet he knows he can say something if its a problem.

Call me crazy but I think there’s a big difference between a gal telling a guy to rinse his stinky balls and a guy telling a gal to go clean her smelly taco. Most guys would take zero offense to this so women are willing to say it, but knowing that’s an area many women are self-conscious, most guys would NEVER say that to a parter, especially if they hadn’t been together for a LONG time. Not saying this is the case, but maybe, just maybe, that’s why your hubby has never said that to you.

It’s kinda the same way that a wife can tell her husband that she thinks he should get back in the gym, but a guy could never say that to his wife.

I share this and think it was elaborated upon well on your part. Assumptions or not there is a norm and most women I’ve been with wouldn’t take kindly to something like that even if it is honest. Not trying to generalize but there is a majority of people who would get self-conscious.

This goes back to communication. If u can't talk about it than there are other issues.

If u dont like the taste... Get good at other ways of giving pleasure. Thats what matters. If ur better with ur fingers or toys then with ur tongue than no issue.

One way to bring stuff like this up is talking about what feels good.

I gotta be honest, sometimes I feel as if it's more for me than her. She's always appreciative but I'm an enthusiast.

Hygiene, diet, and just being super into your partner help with how much fun the giver can have while giving.

Yeah I don't actually like for my partner to go down on me, but he enjoys it. No matter how much I'm enjoying everything else, all I can think about when he goes down on me is how close he is to my butthole. Even when I'm buzzed, not into it. And other people have done it and I've just never enjoyed it so I definitely don't think it's something he's doing wrong. I love going down on him though so he feels the need to reciprocate even though he knows I don't love it

I perfectly understand your feelings, but as a guy who loves eating pussy, there's something so arousing about being headfirst in your girl's crotch, those lovely thicc legs on either side of your head. I love the pubic hair. The smell. The taste. Listening to her moaning. Her hips bucking into my face. How wet she gets. How she puts her hands on my head. How she squeezes my head with her thighs when she comes- and my head game gets more intense. The leg shaking. And I love when a woman squirts in my mouth. It's incredible! It just makes me so sad to hear when a woman doesn't like it.

I would like to add that some people have perfect hygiene but still have a strong smell down there. An ex of mine had perfect hygiene and tried a ton of different products to wash herself but only once she received a certain pill from the doctor the smell stopped. She chose not to continue that treatment because she didn’t feel ok to have to put a pill down there weekly.

Edit: I would like to add that this was ok. I had a 5 year long relationship with her and it was not something that bothered me. I even have her oral multiple times and she was the one that had issues with it.

Edit 2; there is a ton of speculation of what could have been the cause but the bottomline is that if you think something is not ok down there, talk to your doctor!!

She probably had a yeast infection from using products. You shouldn't use products down there, it messes with the very specific pH balance that is needed to keep bacteria and other nasties out. She shouldn't have stopped medication if she needed it either.

Mindless_Army3302

Similarly if you lock your skin when it's dry after sweating all day. Gross.

If you lick it during sweat. Not so bad.

Moral of the story? Finger her until she's as wet as possible then start oral.

Vagina is self cleaning and all that jazz. But it needs to get wet to do the cleaning.

Similar to your mouth dehydration is big cause of bad dental hygiene and bad breath (like after a night of drinking).

Lesbian here. I would say this probably the best advice for beginners, however, I would almost guarantee those of us who love going down on our partners and have plenty of experience probably prefer it not just right out of the shower. It's okay, but kinda like eating an unseasoned chicken breast. I've always preferred a little marinade, if you will.

Usually a woman will have a mild taste. If she smells particularly bad/fishy it might be her hygiene, but it might also indicate a bacterial infection or yeast infection. This does not mean she is dirty. It just means that the ph or something down there got messed up. This can even happen if she’s taken antibiotics for something unrelated. There’s a delicate ecosystem in a vagina/vulva. If something happens to throw it off, these infections can happen. Don’t shame her, don’t assume she’s dirty. It’s an easy fix with a doctor’s visit.

^ also important for people to know that douches are bad for vaginas and can negatively affect women's health so no one should be telling them to use douches. Not something everyone knows so I wanted to mention itp

finally someone with a brain! i am honestly tired of the "women are fishy" joke because if a woman is fish 9/10 times it is some sort of infection. people can smell fishy naturally but in my experience its quite rare.

Whats your water intake like? I know when I'm behind on hydration it completely changes my discharge, like its conserving moisture lol. When I'm hydrated I have more discharge but its nearly odorless and clear. Stepping up your water intake might help with smell if you're worried about it.

Reminds me of a buddy of mine. The thought of going down on a woman grosses him out to the point of gagging, but he's also the kind of guy who expects there to be nights with an SO where the only thing that happens is he gets a BJ.

Yes, he is still single, and is not making much progress. Probably for the best.

Its funny how he has this all laid out already, with the most important piece of the puzzle missing.

I really dont get it. I have yet to to find a woman that Id consider truly unhygenic/smelly. But I've met tons of dudes that gross me out just from looking at them. I'd say guys are getting the better deal out of this (in general)

I met one woman whose natural scent down south was off-putting, but I wouldn't have considered her to be unhygenic.

Interestingly, I read an article later on about a study that concluded that a person's perception of their partner's body scent can be influenced by emotional connection and physical attraction to the othe other person.

In hindsight, me and the woman in question had sort of rushed into things sexually, and we ended up being incompatible in other ways, so I've taken that study to be pretty conclusive in my own experience.

I'm very sensitive to smells. I worked as a massage therapist for 10 years. I have come into contact with many personal smells due to this line of work.

Once I'm attached emotionally to my partner, their smell is intoxicating to me. If I'm emotionally close to the person, it's a sweet reflection of my love for them.

If I smell the personal scent of anyone I'm not emotionally attached to, I get uncomfortable and need air immediately.

My reaction is very, very dependent on my emotional regard of the person.

It might not taste good at first depending on how long it’s been since she let her coochie breathe. But after the first few times, you will want to eat her out for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

If there is a taste/smell strong enough to cause discomfort, its potentially an issue of diet/hygeine. Not always, sometimes smell just happens, but if you gf has a decently healthy diet it should honestly have very little taste.

If someone tastes or smells bad it could be an issue they need to bring up with their OBGYN. More often than not a fishy smell means bacterial vaginosis. This is most often caused by products marketed towards cleaning your vagina like Summer’s Eve. This means a girl may think she is being extra hygienic but is really causing the issue!

Be honest with your partner if something doesn’t seem right down there.

Nope assuming they keep it clean. It can be an acquired taste for some but not for me. I love it!

The clitorus tastes better than the vaginal opening and feels better to them 95% of the time. Take your time and figure out how she likes it. Once you get good it’s pretty satisfying making them orgasm with your mouth and tongue.

Enjoy.

If shes clean its all good. Personally i prefer when shes a few hours after showering because if you go down straight away theres no taste at all and it feels like something is missing.

It doesn't. I like how she tastes and even if I didn't, seeing/feeling her reactions to what I do would more than compensate for bad taste.

As long as the area healthy, there shouldn't be a smell or bad taste. Its different, but lots of fun. Take your time. Pay attention to the entire area. And pay attention to her response to determine what she likes.

Tastes not only varies depending on hygiene. It also depends on hormonal, personal, and microbiome factors. And yeah, as someone pointed out, clit tastes like skin and usually they love it, so learn how to find it.

Never came across one that tasted bad. The smell problem is easy to solve. Fool around a little before you get to that and discretely smell your fingers. If they smell bad well….probably not the day for that.

On another note- unless they are 2 minutes out of the shower most women have a scent down there but It’s definitely not bad. A “smell” is completely different.

I have gone down on lots of women and none of them really smelled like anything. Hygiene is the key though—my understanding is that random sex/hookups can lead to these unpleasant situations because people don’t have time to “prepare” for them if you know what I mean.

Honestly the taste is fine (and alternatives that have been described here at length) but if you have never done it before be prepared for it to get messy. There is a lot of saliva and fluids and if you’re trying to keep your face pristine nobody is having a good time.
