Icon07 Pineapple juice

Comment: I was wondering if at any time your site has tackled the so called
"pineapple juice" myth. I have heard on many occasions that drinking
pineapple juice helps make sperm taste sweeter. I have heard mixed
opinions that it is a myth and that it is true.

I've heard the same thing for girls, but I can't remember where...

I have been told this many times, in the US Navy they serve pineapple juice on the messdecks.

Rageadless of its supposed bodily fluid-flavoring properties, drinking pineapple juice everyday is beneficial because pineapple juice is delicious

Well...in my personal experience it works quite well. My husband used to eat a can of pineapple (and the juice) everyday with his lunch. It was downright pleasant. Now things are just normal

Does grapefruit juice add a bitter note?

Sperm have no taste, surely?

This is true. They often wear plaid, and even mix blue and green.

I read an article about this before. Apparently eating a diet high in sugar will make your semen taste sweeter. A diet high in protein will make it taste bitter.

So drinking pineapple juice, or almost any other sweetened drink every day will, theoretically, make your semen tast more palatable.

Now, I don't think the pineapple juice would affect the taste of sperm (or even that sperm is a detectable taste in semen) but I don't think it would be very odd for sperm to have components human tastebuds can register.

'Cos they're microscopic.

(And also because there is no discernible difference in taste post-vasectomy).

I must second ChickMarie, in that it does make a difference. That and drinking a ton of water everyday.

And oh my yes, there is a taste. Usually, its quite Blech. But with the sweetness, not so bad!

Yes, but the taste is the semen, not the sperm.

Isn't a single molecule of any food microscopic?

And I did say I don't think they have any noticeable effect on the taste of semen. There is too much other stuff, and not enough sperm. But sperm on their own may well have a taste.

This is true. Any taste would be the liquid that the sperm are in.

You'd have to squish a whole bunch together before you'd notice, though. And frankly, that's a science fair project I'm not signing up for, but would very much like to see.

Why use anything, including pineapple juice to make sperm taste better? By sperm I suppose you mean semen. Besides semen isn't suppose to be injested. It's supposed to be ejaculated into a woman's vagina. Furthermore, I don't know anyone who would enjoy injesting semen, unless it's someone who prefers fellatio to sexual intercourse.

Am I missing a joke here somewhere?

Yeah, the curious diversity of the means by which humans interact with each other never ceases to amaze me either. However I try to understand it.
