Vagina odor and taste...

Hey everyone. I was wondering if any of you know of any ways (food, drinks or anything else) that could change the smell or taste of a vagina for the better?

I have heard pineapple juice and vitamin c. Is there anything else that you know of?

Or anything else besides food/drinks?

Even something that just produces a neutral flavor?

The majority of my diet is iced tea, carbs (bagels, pizza, pasta) and chicken. I don't really have dairy or veggies much. So let me know if you have any pointers.

more fruit & veggies definitely should help. things like red meat, alcohol, smoking can all contribute to a less than sweet smell/taste.

pineapple IS good. :)

I smoke like a chimney, eat tons of candy, take loads of vitamins (which apparently makes people taste bitter), never make it a point of eating vegetables or fruits (which I love, just can't really make time for cooking right now because I'm moving).

My vagina? Smells and tastes totally neutral, except for during ovulation, at which point it smells sweet-musky and tastes like nothing. My point? People here will be able to give you general advice about what supposedly works, but the only way to figure it out is to do an elimination diet to see what is ultimately going to work for you. We're all different.

I totally agree with trying an elimination diet, though avoiding the things that commonly make things more bitter, etc. down there would be a good start... so like was said, smoking, drinking, red meat, some vegetables like asparigus... Pineapple and cranberry are two good juices/fruits to start with (I personally find that concentrated, natural cranberry juice (nothing added) gets everything nice and neutral down there.

yep, sweet and tropical fruits are the ones known for changing taste to kinda sweet.

You know what? It should taste and smell like vag. Of course diet can affect any bodily secretion, but Your genitals aren't supposed to smell or taste like fruit or Magic Tree, any more than your sweat should smell like Pepsi! As long as your general hygiene is good then whatever you smell like is probably what you're supposed to smell like, even if it is strong or musky.

Learning what you're supposed to smell like, your own personal vaginal odour, can be very helpful. It also makes recognising any future problems fairly easy!

Try eating a vegetarian or vegan diet for a week and see if that helps :P

Wearing a skirt without undies as often as possible, and especially the day before and during a date, will make you taste and smell so much better - try it.

Quick question -- Is it a vaginal odor and taste that's actually bad, or is it just one that's maybe, well, vulva-esque?

I'm asking because if a vaginal odor is objectively bad, that can be a symptom of something like bacterial vaginosis or trichomoniasis, both of which warrant a visit to a health care professional and treatment.

Aside from that, vulva does and should smell and taste like vulva. It's something that people sometimes have to "grow into" accepting and liking, but that acquired taste is one worth cultivating, IMO. ;)

And while some people do experience smell and taste changes by varying their diets, I've had very limited results in that respect. My taste is more "concentrated," so to speak, when I've been drinking less water and fainter when I've been drinking more, and both my arousal fluid and fertile-quality cervical fluid (back when I ovulated) are sweeter than my normal cervical fluid, which is on the tart side -- but it's all vulva, and it's all me. :)

Whenever I eat a substantial amount of garlic (and I LOVE the stuff... but I've noticed this when I've eaten maybe 3 cloves in a day), my junk smells like garlic for a few days afterward. It's kind of weird, lol. :)

this thread rocks. Ive been on the hunt for a fix or alteration of my taste. my current chemistry and my partners tastes don't mix right now. I really enjoy oral sex and it would be nice to have some in the next few years. I figure anything I can do might help things along. I don't think I taste bad but my tart flavor just doesn't work for my partner. if a change in diet might aid me in my quest it would be an easy fix compared to the option of going without.
