Avoid these Foods before having Sex with Your Partner

Former porn Sex actress, Annie Sprinkle, who tasted hundreds of men’s semen, says vegetarians taste best, that eating fruit and drinking fruit juices a few hours before sex improves the taste, and that smoking, alcohol, meats, and asparagus make semen less palatable.

Fruit juices are often recommended to sweeten semen, notably, apple and pineapple. Meanwhile, foods reported to foul the taste include Sprinkle’s list and others: meats, dairy, deep fried foods, coffee, alcohol, and asparagus, plus one nonfood item, cigarettes.

While there’s no authoritative research on this subject, the foods that sweeten semen–fruits and vegetables–are good for health, while most of those that spoil it are risk factors for heart disease and cancer. So sweetening semen improves men’s health. (Ref. Quora)
