taste acidic

I have been told my vagina tastes "acidic"--How can I make it taste sweeter? Also, the odor is sometimes acidic as well--is that a sign of an infection?

vaginas are supposed to be acidic. i cannot say for sure that yours is normal, but chances are good that if you are not itching and your discharge is clear to cream colored and not chunky or foamy, you are totally fine. people say to eat pineapple and other fruit to improve taste....i don't know that it actually works.

It does! =0D Pineapple is my favorite poon-sweetening tool. In fact it makes your whole body smell better!

I wonder if it works with Pineapple juice. I usually drink Malibu + Pineapple Juice when I'm out with guys...

Never had any complaints.
blacksambuca 18th-Oct-2006 05:42 pm (UTC)
I'm sure it does, as long as it's real pineapple juice and not just pineapple-flavored cocktail or something...
jessalyn 18th-Oct-2006 05:48 pm (UTC)
Nada, it was real juice, as far as I know. I had to shake it before I mixed it with my rum. I didn't really bother reading the bottle though ;[

Somewhat acidic is normal. If you want to make it taste sweeter, consume more fruit/fruit juices, especially pinapple, orange, and mango. And drink lots of water.
Also, avoid asparagus, cigarettes, alcohol, caffeine, red meat, and fatty/processed foods to improve taste.

lol - I suppose that's good advice, but I'd much rather have fatty foods and red meat than a tasty vagina. With how horribly nasty semen tastes, I think the boy should just deal with it :). OP will have to make up her own mind.

lol!!! 100% agreed.
jessalyn 18th-Oct-2006 05:44 pm (UTC)
Well, I eat lots of meat, not a lot of veggies (I'm so bad, I know)-- not much fatty stuff though. (I'm known to pick the fat off my meat). Never had any complaints here.

I do, though, tend to eat more fruits (Apples, Bananas, Pineapple *juice*, nectarines...) around my boyfriend though.

*I* really like the taste of semen, actually, but then, I get it from a Vegan source, so maybe that has something to do with it.
eclare 18th-Oct-2006 07:12 pm (UTC)
It is better from vegetarians. But it's still not pleasant, IMHO

The acid in your vagina is what protects you from infection.

Are you really all that acidic? Have you tasted yourself? I never trust a man's opinion about my vagina (or even another woman, for that matter - sorry for assuming heterosexuality).

i am so going to try that smoothie. does it matter if you use fresh pineapple or not?
jocelina 18th-Oct-2006 11:49 pm (UTC)
Oooh, that sounds delicious.

I love pineapple in smoothies.

thank you all !!! i am hetero and 2 guys have told me it was really unnatural tasting at times and then another loved it regardless (go figure). yes actually, I have "tasted" myself and i wouldn't want to eat it--it was extremely acidic. it seems to be now more than ever. i had changed to the patch and then the ring and thought that might have something to do with it, but it has continued without either of them. i tend to eat more meat than anything--ive cut out cokes and drink mainly water--i'll try the juice and the smoothie--keep the advice coming.

what is that and how does one consume it????
poonchkie 18th-Oct-2006 09:47 pm (UTC)
You can find fenugreek capsules at the health food store. Fenugreek is some plant I've heard called a "woman's herb". I took it years ago to try to regulate my period. I know some breast feeding mothers take it as well to increase their milk supply.

The point at which you are in your cycle can have an effect on your vaginal flavor. I taste sweet and fruity when I'm near ovulation (boyfriend says so, and my own taste-tests confirm it!) When I am nearing menstruation, my juices tend to thin and become more milky and runny, and this is the time when I am most likely to taste 'tangy' or acidic.
sinful_grrrl 18th-Oct-2006 08:03 pm (UTC)
I tend to taste sweet/like almost nothing, depending on what part of my cycle I'm on, which is odd, considering my favorite foods (and things I eat far too much of) are things involving lots of hot sauce or lots of garlic...lol.

I do drink alot of water though, which is really good for you btw, and I think that might be why I don't taste acidic or anything.
poonchkie 18th-Oct-2006 09:48 pm (UTC)
My urine smells like garlic when I eat large amounts of it. :( Even when I drink bunches of water. I have to take those no-odor garlic tabs.
sinful_grrrl 18th-Oct-2006 09:53 pm (UTC)
My urine smells like...urine. It's not usually offensive or garlicy, despite my eating what seems like several tons of garlic a year (I love the stuff). Meat is what makes it smell nasty for me.
poonchkie 18th-Oct-2006 10:45 pm (UTC)
Oh... i see. I don't eat much meat cuz I feel tired after eating it. But I've noticed if I don't drink much water at a BBQ party, my pee will smell like BBQ sauce. And if I eat more fruit than usual that day, it smells sweet. I've smelled the urine of cigarette smokers. The smell of nicotine/tobacco is noticable. I've talked way to much about this subject.
sinful_grrrl 18th-Oct-2006 10:48 pm (UTC)
lol. I don't have any problems with my urine smelling different 'cept with meat.

I do have IBS type symptoms, so it may just be that nothing stays in long enough to make my urine smell differently, plus my water intake being so high.

I almost always taste acidic, ranging from slightly coppery/tangy to almost vinegary. Only one person has remarked on it (though not complained per se), but he tasted like old mushrooms, so fuck him!

It's totally normal to taste acidic.

I taste faintly acidic, and I like it. It does vary across the month, but I like the slightly sharp tanginess.

When I was on HBC... I was "acidic"

Since I've been off of HBC (I have a copper IUD now). My boy tells me I'm much sweeter tasting...

Btw.. I don't eat ANY red meat (only chicken) and I'm a caffiene-soda addict (3 cans a day at least). So my diet isn't all that great, but my change in birth control has defintely changed my taste.
