Does pineapple juice make sperm taste sweeter?

An individual’s taste is more significant than drinking pineapple juice or not when it comes to taste preference.

While many people might recommend gulping down a few glasses of pineapple juice before oral sex for sweeter sperm, that juice probably does nothing at all.

While not much research has been done on the subject, the composition of sperm does not change dramatically, clinical sexologist Lawrence Siegel told Elite Daily.

Basically, all the foods said to improve the taste are also good for you. Generally, a healthy diet will contribute to healthy, or “better-tasting” sperm, while things like smoking, heavy drinking and consuming a lot of junk food contribute to reports of “bitter-tasting” sperm, Siegel said.

A woman’s specific tastes can also influence reports, as women have heightened sensitivity to sweetness during ovulation. It also depends on the individual’s preferences as to what tastes good and bad, Siegel said.
