If you are planning on receiving oral sex in the near future, then you might be wondering how to make your vagina taste better and smell better. After all, you want your partner to have the best time possible when they’ve got their face buried down there. You are never going to be able to get your vag to taste sweet as such, but there are a few things you can do in order to help it to taste better than it might otherwise taste.

It is important to remember that there are many different ways a vagina can taste naturally, and very few of them are signs of a problem, but you might still feel like you want to make things taste as good as possible in order to score extra points in the bedroom. Below, we’re going to break down some of the things you might want to bear in mind if you’re looking to make your vagina taste sweeter.

Why does a vagina taste like that?

Your vagina itself doesn’t actually taste of much. It’s the fluids that your vag produces that have the flavor, just like the way that semen has much more of a flavor than a penis does. There are a number of different factors that affect the way your body and its secretions taste, particularly around your vagina.

Your body’s natural sweaty smells are going to make a big difference here. Your vagina is located right between your legs, in an area that’s basically an armpit for your legs. There’s a fair bit of sweat around there, and if you want to cut down on that aspect of your natural vaginal tastes then wearing breathable cotton panties can make a big difference to things.

You’re also going to be dealing with a combination of the smell and taste of any soaps you use on your body, as well as the laundry detergent you use on your underwear. These will affect your vagina’s tastes a little, but the biggest thing is the natural smell and taste of the fluids your vagina produces.

Foods that can make your vagina taste better

The fluids produced by your vagina have a relatively strong taste, just like semen does, and just like semen, that can be affected by the foods and drinks you consume. Citrus fruits like oranges, grapefruits, and lemons can make a big difference to the sweetness of your vagina, as can pineapple, according to a great deal of anecdotal evidence.

Herbs can also make a difference, both when you eat them and when you use them to wash with. A few sprigs of mint in your dinner can help make your vaginal juices taste better, and infusing your bathing water with herbs can have great results for cutting down on odor-causing bacteria.

Foods that make your vagina taste worse

While there are some foods that can help to make your vaginal fluids taste better, the opposite is also true. There are foods that can make your vagina taste worse, and avoiding those can make a difference to how your vagina tastes.

In general, foods that make your breath or sweat smell bad are likely to have exactly the same effect on your vagina. That’s things like onions and garlic, as well as brassicas such as broccoli. All of these are healthy and important parts of a balanced diet, and you should avoid cutting them out of your diet, but it might be worth avoiding them for a day or two before a planned intimate adventure.

The same goes for coffee, which can have a pretty significant impact on how your pee smells, and in turn, can spread that smell to your vagina. As well as that, coffee is acidic and can lower the overall pH environment of your body. Changing the pH balance of your body can disrupt the bacterial balance, which can lead to increased growth of unwanted bacteria that smell and taste bad, as well as increasing the risk of infections. Infections, of course, bring bad smells and tastes with them along with a whole host of other problems!

Probiotics for vaginal tastes

Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your digestive system. Your body is full of bacteria, many of which are good, and those good bacteria can make a surprisingly significant difference to the levels of bad bacteria in your body. Boosting the levels of good bacteria with probiotic foods can reduce the levels of odor-causing bacteria that make your vagina smell and taste bad, improving how you taste.

Probiotics are found in fermented foods like yogurt, sauerkraut, kimchi, and kombucha, and all of these are great things to incorporate into your diet.

Drinking water

Everyone needs a different level of water in order to stay healthy and hydrated, depending on their metabolic rates and how much activity they tend to do. But did you know that drinking plenty of water can make your vagina taste better?

When you’re dehydrated, your urine becomes more acidic, and that can affect the smell and taste of everything it comes near. Drinking water reduces that acidity level and has the added benefit of causing you to pee more often.

Regular peeing helps you to flush out unwanted toxins and bacteria. Think about the often-repeated advice to always pee after sex to avoid urinary tract infections! It’s an important part of keeping everything clean down there and avoiding the build-up of anything that smells and tastes unpleasant.


Hopefully, the suggestions above can help you achieve some reasonable results when it comes to making your vag taste sweeter, but it’s important to remember that there’s only so far you can get there. You’re never going to be able to make your vagina taste particularly sweet, and anyone who pressures you to try to do that isn’t worth your time. Steer clear of aggressive vaginal cleaning practices, as these can harm your bacterial health. Your vagina cleans itself, and a smell and taste that’s a bit salty and musky is entirely natural and only to be expected.

A healthy vagina has a unique taste, and everyone will taste a bit different. Don’t worry about how you taste and don’t stress out about it too much. If you want to make things a little more appealing down there, though, then the list of suggestions above are all entirely safe and healthy and are reasonable options to try if you want to make a bit of a difference to the taste of your vagina for more sweetness.
