Oral sex does spice up the fun and adds some mischievous content into it if done properly.
But, a majority of the people feel conscious about their private areas so that it does not turn into an embarrassment for them and their partner.
A woman cannot know how her vagina tastes and this can make her feel conscious or anxious while having oral sex.
It is easy to make that area look presentable by shaving off the pubic hair and making it clean and smooth, but the taste is something that can oomph up the experience of having oral sex.
I am sure you will not want your vagina to smell or taste bad. That area can sometimes have a metallic taste and odour because of more acidic levels.
One should understand that the taste and scent of the vagina depend on a lot of factors like the natural smell of a person, the food you eat, the soap and body lotion you use, plus the arousal fluid.
A woman is usually told that vaginas are stinky and gross, which makes them feel under confident of their own body part. But it is important to know that a vagina can taste metallic, sweet, sour, spiced, bitter, sharp, or acidic at times.
The vaginas also have a pH value, which is a big factor which decides the taste of the vagina.
VAGINAL SMELL OR SYMPTOMS OF SOMETHING MORE
Your natural state of the vagina will never smell like rotten eggs. It will have a transparent fluid coming through it. However, if you notice that the vagina's smell has suddenly changed, then this is not a normal sign. You need to visit a physician and get the thing checked.
This could be the signs and symptoms of some infections, such as yeast, sexually-transmitted diseases, or even bacteria. If anyone of these three is happening, they might damage the ecosystem of your vagina, leading to an unpleasant smell.
When bacteria enter your vagina, the problem is coined as bacterial vaginosis or BV. Masturbation, sex, and even douching can cause BV. However, there can be other reasons as well. If you smell a fishy odour, you probably have BV.
You might have already experienced some pain of discharge while having sex or peeing. Women can have BV without showing any signs or symptoms as well.
If you can smell something weird out of your vagina, go and get yourself tested, you might have a yeast infection. You will also see some cheesy type of discharge. There are some natural remedies that can cure it, though.
You should take yoghurt to get rid of yeast infection and, if you have this infection, don't indulge in unprotected sex. You might pass this to your partner.
Women can have infection through sexual transmission as well. The foul smell could be a sign of STDs.
All of these three problems are different, and they need medical attention. Only antibiotics won’t stop the infection, especially in the case of yeast infection. Ensure that if you seek medical treatment check if there is some kind of an issue.
First of all, you will already know that your vagina is smelling or not because it is your body. If you are planning to have sex, ask your partner to bring some flavoured lubes.
Flavoured lubes won’ allow your vagina to smell bad because they have a high-intensity scent.
Also, quickly run to your bathroom to give a fast rinse to your vagina. Don't use soap until it's extremely necessary.
You need to ask your partner to wear a condom and use some flavoured lubes. However, flavored lubes contain chemicals, and that can escalate the matter too.
It is ok for one time, but don't use flavoured lubes again and again, even if your vagina is not smelling bad at all. One thing that you must note is that once the person ejaculates inside you, your vagina is going to smell a bit because your pH level is different.
Tips to Keep the Vagina Clean
Vagina has the capability of keeping itself clean and pH balanced. Thus, there is no special need to clean it with soap or other liquids as it can hamper its ability to work normally and can be infectious. The inner labia use a little TLC to keep itself clean.
You must have seen a sticky white substance on the two folds, the place where labia meet the clitoris. This happens because the dead cells get collected there and impart a musty smell and taste to that area. You can take that build up off very easily by cleaning with plain water.
In the shower, just pull apart the labia gently and wash the inner labia using warm water. Use your fingertips to massage out the build-up. Even before having sex, you can clean the inner labia area to make yourself and your partner more comfortable and your vagina looks more presentable.
This will enhance your oral sex experience. Be gentle whenever you clean this area to avoid rashes and infections, as this area is extremely delicate. Other ways to keep the vagina clean and healthy are by wearing cotton underwear and avoiding thongs.
You should sleep naked or airy cotton clothes, and eat healthy foods. Sex can be messy so always observe what your vagina discharges and if you find any change in the look, smell, or odour of your discharge then visit the doctor right away.
Sexplanations - Vagina Mysteries Solved!
Why Do We Worry About the Taste of Vagina?
The main issue behind the worry about how our vaginas taste goes back to the time when we were growing up and got to know about our bodies. We were always told that vaginas are smelly, grossy, and sticky; and this got engraved deep inside our minds and hearts.
But this has brought harm to our self-esteem and sex lives. We start feeling ashamed of our bodies around puberty when we get aware that we have a vagina. So, by the time we become adults, we feel that we are undeserving for our partners.
Therefore, before having oral sex, we get paranoid about how the vagina will taste and smell. A woman needs to understand and respect the body God has gifted her. This confidence will avoid the hesitation that you can heave before going for oral sex with your partner.
The mere fact that it was engraved in our minds, it turns wrong for our sex life and this is very frustrating because the whole enjoyment of having oral sex goes for a toss. So, embrace your skin and body and feel confident about it, always.
Enjoy the unique intimacy of oral sex and only think about how your vagina smells and tastes, before oral sex. Work on it if you feel you need to enhance the smell and taste of your vagina, as it is in your hands.
Beautifying your organ and presenting it to your partner can be very sexy and can fire up the session by manifolds. Avoid negative thinking about your body and try to overcome such concerns by staying positive and welcoming about your body.
Also, many times people feel it is uncomfortable to receive oral sex due to some past, horrible experiences, like abuse. Sexual abuse impacts confidence deeply and makes you feel low about your body. In such cases, consult a therapist to regain confidence about your body and self.
Bear in mind that it is your body and it has all the right to get all the pleasures. Make sure it tastes fine and satisfies you as well as your partner. The top reason why women worry about their vagina taste is that they don't want to be embarrassed in front of their significant other.
It is almost the same as the reputation linked to early ejaculation. Both things are different, but there is a feel-good and bad moment attached to it.
What does Vaginal Odour mean?
Every woman knows her normal vagina smell. Any change can be pointed fast and should be paid heed to. Any change in its scent or flavor means there is some infection, especially if there are other symptoms like itchiness, unusual discharge, etc.
In other cases, if there is a change in the smell, it can indicate the onset of menopause as well. The reason is that at this stage the estrogenic levels come down and make the vaginal more basic in nature. Thus, making it smell different.
At the end of it, the vagina is not meant to taste and smell like fruits or flowers.
Vaginal Odour typically means the odour that emanates from inside your vagina. It is quite normal to have slightly pungent odour coming out from your pussy but if it smells too awful (for example, smell like a rotten fish) then you might have something to worry about.
Usually, the foul odour is due to an infection or any other issue that you face along with problems like itching or burning sensation. Also, it is normal for the vaginal smell to vary as per the different days of your menstrual cycle.
Your vagina might smell different after making love with your partner and if you sweat too much then that might also produce a noticeable impact on your vaginal odour.
We have discussed some of the issues like Bacterial vaginosis, yeast infection, STIs, etc. that can contribute towards the awful smell emanating from your pussy but there are many other reasons as well some of which are serious enough to have a drastic effect on your overall health.
Let us discuss some of these issues now:
If your vagina is smelling like a fermented food like sourdough bread or yoghurt then there is nothing to worry about as the sour fragrance is due to the healthy bacteria that might thrive inside your treasure box.
If a metallic fragrance is coming out from your vagina then it might be due to the presence of blood in your vaginal canal. The blood might enter in your vaginal canal through the uterine lining during the periods or insufficient lubrication while having sex can be the reason behind light bleeding inside your vagina.
Therefore, you can check whether the vaginal canal has some blood remains or not. If the bleeding is persistent then you must consult a doctor immediately.
Otherwise, you should not be too worried about it but do care to lube up your insides sufficiently before the intercourse to avoid the metallic smell in the future.
Presence of small amounts of urine or sweat on your vulva or underwear might make your vagina smell like ammonia. Therefore, it is necessary to keep your vulva and underwear clean to avoid it from smelling pungent.
If your vagina is smelling like a rotten fish or egg then it might due to several reasons like you might have left a tampon inside and later forgotten about it completely. STIs like Trichomoniasis can make your vagina smell fishy and to cure it you will have to undergo a course of antibiotic treatment.
You must visit the doctor only in later two cases i.e. when your vagina is smelling fishy or rotten.
However, if your vagina is smelling different and you are also facing other issues like itching, pain, discomfort while having sex, a thick cheesy discharge, abrupt bleeding from the vainga, etc. then also you must visit a doctor at once.
